Bartolo Colon, Oakland A's (N/A) -- I used the ADPs compiled by the fine folks over at FantasyPros.com for this column. They went to 407. Colon was not listed. All he's done after getting drafted outside the first 407 picks in an average draft is go 12-3 with a 2.70 ERA and 3.31 FIP. He has walked just 15 batters in 126.2 innings and has surrendered just nine homers. He's one of two pitchers with fewer than 20 walks and single-digit home runs allowed this year. The other? Adam Wainwright. Yeah, I'd say that's pretty good for a guy who couldn't crack the top-407 players back in March.
