Profile: Chris Heisey signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract with the Nationals, and despite the meager terms of the deal, he could actually prove to be a useful player for the team given their roster construction.  Outfielders Bryce Harper and Adam Eaton are both left-handed but are both too good to platoon.  That could leave Heisey battling fellow right-handed outfielders Jayson Werth and Michael Taylor for playing time barring injuries.  Heisey’s main advantage there is his reverse platoon split.  For his career, Heisey has hit .254/.310/.431 against right-handed hitters compared to just .217/.278/.399 against lefties.  Neither Werth nor Taylor shares that unusual proclivity, and that could land Heisey the lion share of the fourth outfielder innings and occasional start when the 37-year-old Werth needs a day off.  That isn’t enough to make Heisey rosterable in traditional fantasy formats, but on the days he does start against a right-hander, he could be a useful, low-cost DFS option.  He hasn’t reached 300 plate appearances in a season since 2012, but as a part time player, his 3.7 percent home run rate has been equal to that of full-time players like Joey Votto, Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, and Adrian Gonzalez.  (Scott Spratt)

The Quick Opinion: Sharing the fourth outfielder duties in Washington with Michael Taylor, Chris Heisey likely won’t see the field enough to become a useful player in traditional fantasy formats.  In DFS, however, Heisey’s unusual reverse platoon split could earn him some spot starts against right-handed pitchers where his moderate power could make him a decent, low-priced option.
