Ian Desmond is not in the Nationals' starting lineup on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Advice: It's just a routine day of rest. Danny Espinosa is starting at shortstop and Asdrubal Cabrera is at second.

Ian Desmond had three singles and four RBI against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Advice: Desmond is getting about as many chances to drive in runs as anyone in the majors, and he's taking advantage, with 77 RBI through 122 games. His career high is 80, established last year. Overall, he's not hitting as well this year as he did either of the last two years -- his average currently stands at .251 after seasons of .292 and .280 -- but he's been an awfully valuable fantasy shortstop, particularly since he's the one that's managed to stay healthy.
