2017 FANTASY BASEBALL STATUS REPORT: ANDREW McCUTCHEN

0-for-9 and counting.  That is the starting at-bats results for Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen who is trying to put what many consider to be a very disappointing 2016 fantasy baseball campaign in the rearview mirror.  With his speed vastly diminishing and his average cratering to a mediocre .256 last season, McCutchen had more than a few detractors as his ADP sank in 2017 drafts.  A decent start was needed by McCutchen to try and quiet the whispers that he is in a premature decline but that obviously has not happened.  The one caveat here is that McCutchen has historically been a slow starter, with April being by far his worst offensive month (career .251 batting average).  So while you want to see signs McCutchen will put himself back into upper tier status, he is still far from guaranteed to get there.
