Matt Wieters plans to picks up 2018 option

Nationals catcher Matt Wieters is planning to pick up his $10.5 million player option to remain in Washington next season.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters got off to a hot start in 2017 but faded badly down the stretch. By the end of the fantasy regular season he wasn't worth starting in single catcher formats. He should remain the Nationals' starter but fantasy players should look elsewhere when selecting a catcher next March.

Fantasy Impact

Matt Wieters went 2-for-4 with a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored on Thursday night as the Nationals beat the Astros 5-4.

Fantasy Impact

The 31-year-old switch hitter has been fading badly ever since a productive April. Even including this two-hit performance Wieters is batting just .173 in August after posting a .230 mark in July. Fantasy players can do better in single catcher formats.

Fantasy Impact

Wieters in total had five RBIs on the day, which gives him 43 for the year. The veteran catcher is now hitting .245 with a .676 OPS. He's a fine option in single catcher formats, but he doesn't need to be owned by any means.

Matt Wieters strikes out three more times on Friday

Matt Wieters went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts on Friday as the Nationals beat the Cubs in Wrigley 4-2.
