Denard Span (OF, WAS) - Waiver Wire Pickups

The Mechanic - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues

ANALYSIS: Denard Span is the 3rd ranked player in Yahoo! over the last two weeks, but he's still only owned in 54% of leagues.  Since it's August, you know his ownership % is simply a result of many owners being out of contention and not paying attention. But if you're paying attention, go pick him up right now and then come back and read this to feel ok about it.  Span is tearing it up atop the Nationals potent lineup, with 11 runs, 6 RBI, 7 SB and a whopping .449 BA over his last 49 ABs. He has hits in 9 straight games, with 6 runs in and 5 SB in that span.  He's blazing hot and he has tons of great hitters behind him (Werth, Rendon, Harper, Desmond) to keep knocking him in.  Span could easily be a top 5 leadoff hitter the rest of the way and make for a solid #3 OF in all leagues.  If you have the need for speed, go snatch him up!
