Amid an up-and-down first season with the Nationals, Corbin still carries a stellar 3.34 ERA and 180 strikeouts in 153.2 innings. His slider continues to dominate, but his fastball has gotten clobbered. He has rebounded in resounding fashion after an ugly three-start stretch in late May and early June, so continue to treat him as a borderline top-15 starter living up to his draft-day cost.

Corbin has seen his ratios drop a bit from last season's incredible breakout, but he is still going to strikeout 220 batters and don't be surprised if he ends up at 15 wins despite struggling to reach double-digits in the first 4 months.

Corbin has picked up right where he left off when he broke out during his final season in Arizona. His strikeout, walk, and ground ball rates all aren't quite as great as they were last year, but they're still good enough to enjoy continued fantasy success. He's a rock solid second starter in fantasy leagues.
