by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

For their Sunday matchup at the Marlins, the Nationals left Ian Desmond, Denard Span, Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos out of their starting lineup. Ryan Zimmerman, who made his return from a two-month hiatus due to a hamstring injury on Saturday, was also not in Sunday's lineup.

Denard Span set to sit Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Nationals center fielder Denard Span is grabbing some pine Wednesday night against the Mets in favor of Michael Taylor.

Span had his hitting streak stopped Tuesday at 14 games. A hot stretch sent his average soaring from .275 to .303 since July 22.

Denard Span not going away
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After two monster weeks, Denard Span ranks 15th among outfielders in Head-to-Head points leagues to date. He's best suited for that format, but even in Rotisserie leagues, he ranks a respectable 23rd.

He's on a career-high steals pace (34) after disappointing in that category for most of his career, which helps his Rotisserie ranking, but otherwise, he isn't doing anything he hasn't shown the ability to do in the past (making consistent contact, drawing a useful number of walks, piling up doubles, etc.). He's just doing it all at once -- and with good health to boot.

To be fair, he's always been undervalued in points leagues, ranking 35th among outfielders in that format last year, but most mixed-league owners would rather gamble on a top-50 outfielder with a shot at top 20-status than a top-35 outfielder with no room to grow. I know I would.

Clearly, though, Span has grown, and while I can still put together a lengthy list of outfielders I'd rather own in Fantasy, I'm no longer bypassing him on principle. To put it another way, I wouldn't consider him a top-15 outfielder going forward, but top-40 makes him too valuable to sit in most leagues.
