Following a tremendous conclusion to 2018, Zimmerman started 2019 with a whimper. The 34-year-old batted .212/.302/.373 before landing on the injured list plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He'll miss at least a couple of weeks and is a hard player to stash in most mixed leagues. Unlike last year, the Statcast data (.212 xBA, .290 xwOBA) doesn't suggest he'll find a higher gear when healthy.

You may not feel sexy drafting Ryan Zimmerman, but he is just one year removed from hitting 36 homers with a .303 batting average and 108 RBIs. Last year wasn't bad either with an .824 OPS, but he caught the injury bug again. He is a classic boom or bust late-round pick.
