Fantasy Roundup: Time to Sell Fielder

Based on his ADP, I was not a believer in Prince Fielder because of his declining performance against fastballs. Specifically, he was making less hard contact. The image below shows his WHAV (Well Hit Average) against fastballs since 2008. A declining trend indicates a loss of bat speed.
