Is Ryan Zimmerman Due for Regression?
A Quick Look at Ryan Zimmerman
After a scorching hot start to the season, Ryan Zimmerman is finally cooling off and becoming the .290-.300 hitter that he was suited to be. Through 33 games this season, Zimmerman is batting .393 with 13 homeruns and 34 RBIs. Ryan was on a massive tear early, but he has come back down to reality. He is a player that will still produce very solid numbers, but not be over a .300 hitter through the course of the season. The 32 year old righty looks like he still has a lot left in the tank, and has moved up to the cleanup spot in the order on a top tier Nationals offense. Zimmerman is a player to keep a deep eye on. If he heats up, he should be owned in all lineups for daily fantasy. Zimmerman hasn’t topped 26 homeruns in his career, but he is half way there already, and should absolutely shatter that, bearing no setbacks.
Would I Start Ryan Zimmerman In DFS?
No. His price is too high, and he is on a decline at this point in time. Over his last 14 at bats, Zimmerman only has 1 hit, and even though this is over a course of 3 games, I see Zimmerman slowing down and moving back to the five spot in the order compared to the 4. Zimmerman is still going to get his fair shares of RBIs, as he hits in one of the best offenses in the entire major league. Zimmerman has not looked that great over the past few games, but that doesn’t mean to not give him a look against a terrible lefty, or an awful righty. His power is great for GPP formats, but for cash games, he is a bit of a high risk as his homerun is everything to depend on, but like I said before, if he gets hot… Start him in all formats.
