If Hill struggles it won't matter because the Jays aren't competing anyway. Hill is also more likely to stay at the top of the order for the same reason.
I have Zobrist ranked above Hill personally , not by much though. He is the top player in the 3rd tier of 2B for me.
There are two sides of the coin. Noone can predict how long a slump lasts, and by benching Zobrist, they could lose a big bat for good, so the Rays must allow Zobrist to work his way out of it. They might give him additional rest, to work on his hitting, but at the end, he is their best bat at 2nd, and they'll need him if they wanna make the playoffs.
BTW anyone who struggles is pretty much worthless in fantasy, regardless of playing time. So if Hill struggles, he might not lose PT in Toronto but will be benched in fantasy.
