San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco is starting in center field and leading off against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, July 27. Giants OF Denard Span is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: View this as a routine day off for Span, but he's barely moving the fantasy needle enough to be anything more than a low-end option in deep mixed leagues. He's got just three stolen bases through his past 38 games, after all. Blanco is a nice value play in daily contests Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Span is giving his fantasy owners modest returns with a .248 average, 40 runs, four homers, 30 RBI and nine steals in 82 games thus far. He doesn't often fill out the stat sheet and isn't a popular daily pick, but he can be useful as outfield depth in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

San Francisco Giants OF Denard Span (neck) is back in the starting lineup as the leadoff hitter against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Friday, July 8. 2B Grant Green moves down to seventh in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Span has produced mediocre stats across the board this year with a .253 average, 38 runs scored, four home runs, 30 RBI and eight stolen bases. He can be useful in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for his runs and speed, but he's not giving you much else. Span has hit .230 with a homer and eight RBI against lefties, so give him another day before bringing him back in your lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Span's 38 runs, 30 RBI, eight stolen bases and .253/.335/.352 slash line are pretty modest numbers, and while he's likely capable of more, he's best left to deep mixed and NL-only settings. Stay tuned for updates on his status leading into the weekend.
