FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Ian Desmond will return to the lineup tomorrow after resting with the flu and split finger, per Matt Williams.

Although both injuries appear to be of the minor variety, the Nationals do not want to rush him back to the lineup until he is at 100 percent health. Desmond is currently being drafted in the top five among fantasy shortstops according to NFBC data, holding down an ADP of 35.48. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
