Ian Desmond has developed into a top 5 fantasy shortstop. He is entering the prime of his career and has established a standard of consistency for himself. You know what you are getting from this guy. His final numbers will mirror Hanley Ramirez, except you can get Desmond in the fourth round instead of reaching for Hanley in the second. You can lock him in to hit 20 home runs, with 20 steals at a .280 clip. - Alan Harrison
It shocks me that some players and pundits would take Jean Segura over Desmond. A 20-20 season is bettable, he's been a plus average source the last two years, and here comes another Age-27 season. A very safe building-block hitter. - Scott Pianowski
A 20/20 threat in the 5-hole? Desmond, one of the top shortstops in fantasy baseball, will help in every category. Hitting behind Harper and Zimmerman and in front of LaRoche and Ramos will pad RBI and runs scored, making you a very happy owner. - Billy Bruce
