Fantasy Impact: Although he had a great season, there is room for improvement with the Nats leadoff hitter. For example his walk rate. He had 50 BB vs 65 SO. The worry is looking at his inconsistency in 2013 and the way he ended the 2014 season. There is the risk of Span reverting to his 2013 statistics, and also the chance that he will bat .300 with 30+ steals. The late round pick is well worth the risk.
