Denard Span set to sit Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/14) 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
(8/5/14) 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.

Denard Span has improved plate discipline in July
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/14) Nationals outfielder Denard Span's on-base percentage has been on the rise in July. It has gone from .312 at the start of the month to .348 through Wednesday's game at Miami, and a large reason for the improvement has been because of the 16 walks Span has drawn in 23 games this month.

"I think it just comes from being in a good position to hit," Span said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously that results in me seeing the ball better. It’s been a good feeling because I haven’t walked like this in a while. I know that this is something I’m capable of doing. My walks have been down the last three or four years. It’s just good that I’ve been able to see a lot of pitches and confident to hit with two strikes and just trusting myself just to get into deeper counts."

Span is also batting .363 (33 for 91) in July, which has helped boost his average from .265 to .288.

"I’m in a pretty good position to hit," Span said. "I think that’s allowing me to see the ball a lot sooner, a lot better and lay off some good pitchers’ pitches, and put the balls in play that are strikes."

Denard Span records second straight 4-hit game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/26/14) Nationals outfielder Denard Span continued his absurdly hot hitting Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Reds.

Span put together his second four-hit game in a row Friday, as he went 4 for 5 at the top of the lineup. Span scored once and drove in one run, his second game in a row with an RBI as well.

Span now has seven multi-hit games in his last 10, and is hitting .387/.446/.440 in the month of July. 

Denard Span collects sixth multi-hit game in July
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/14) Nationals outfielder Denard Span collected multiple hits for a fourth straight game and sixth time in July Sunday against the Brewers. He tallied two singles and a walk in a 5-4 win.

Span is batting .351 (20 for 57) with four doubles, five walks, 11 runs and three stolen bases in 14 July games.
