Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman has four hits

Sun, 29 May 2016 04:50:58 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman had four hits, including two home runs, in a 9-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, May 28. Zimmerman stands at .244/.314/.440 for the year.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman's batting average is still low, but his slugging percentage has gotten better in relation to his hitting. The Nationals had a dismal day overall, but Zimmerman showed why he merits playinf in DFS and annual formats.

Nationals | Several WAS regulars return to lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:10:37 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman, OF Jayson Werth and C Wilson Ramos are back in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Despite getting off to a lackluster start this year, Werth is batting .455 (10-for-22) with three home runs and seven RBI versus left-handed pitching, making him worthy of lineup consideration for daily fantasy games. Ramos is batting .333 in 72 at-bats on the road and is hitting .339 overall, so he should be viewed as a potential value play.

Nationals | Three Nats on the bench

Sat, 21 May 2016 13:58:36 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth, 1B Ryan Zimmerman and C Wilson Ramos are out of the lineup Saturday, May 21. OF Chris Heisey is hitting second, 1B Clint Robinson hits fifth and C Jose Lobaton hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has rather pedestrian numbers on the year, but he has two homers in 15 at-bats this month. He has a tough draw against Jose Fernandez, but he has upside ahead of Bryce Harper. Robinson has a .294-2-6 line in 17 at-bats this month and has taken Fernandez deep before. He's a fringe option worth consideration today. Lobaton doesn't have the offensive potential for the stream today.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy in cleanup spot

Wed, 11 May 2016 12:32:25 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy is hitting cleanup against Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann Wednesday, May 11. 1B Ryan Zimmerman moves down to fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Despite hitting two home runs Tuesday night, Zimmerman is hitting only .235 on the year, and the Nats want to give Bryce Harper more protection. Murphy has an eye-popping .398/.439/.650 slash line with five home runs, 49 hits and 20 RBI. While he's due for regression, Murphy could remain one of the most productive all-around second basemen in fantasy throughout the year.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman powers up

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:37:16 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBIs Tuesday, May 10, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmerman entered the game with just one homer, and he is still hitting just .235 overall on the season. Despite the big game he is still best used in NL-only fantasy leagues only.

Nationals | Ryan Zimmerman leaves team hanging

Mon, 09 May 2016 09:24:39 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman left 14 men on base by himself in the 4-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs Sunday, May 8. Only three others in the last 60 years have left that many men on base in one game. All of the players on the list achieved this in extra-inning games, including Zimmerman.

Fantasy Tip: The once mighty Zimmerman has fallen on hard times. He's hitting .236 with only one home run this year to go along with 12 RBI. With Bryce Harper hitting before him, other clubs may use the tactic of pitching around Harper more often to get to Zimm with runners on base. Zimmerman has become a low-end starting third baseman and is better utilized as corner infield depth in deep mixed leagues.

Nationals | Two Nats due for better luck?

Tue, 03 May 2016 16:43:51 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and 1B Ryan Zimmerman have combined for just one home run and nine RBI to start the year. However, Rendon has a .279 batting average on balls in play, which is 32 points below his career mark. Zimmerman's average exit velocity off the bat of 95 mph ranks seventh in baseball, and he's reached base in four of his last eight plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon has been hitting the ball hard as well and should start seeing better results sooner than later. He's a prime buy-low fantasy commodity in the early going. With Zimmerman, it's all about health. His last two seasons suffered as he dealt with injuries that shortened his years. Either way, don't completely write him off in shallow leagues just yet.

Nationals | Michael Taylor, Ryan Zimmerman out

Sun, 01 May 2016 08:09:44 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor and 1B Ryan Zimmerman are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Sunday, May 1. OF Matt den Dekker will bat leadoff and play center field, while 1B/OF Clint Robinson starts at first base and bats sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Den Dekker and Robinson are a combined 6-for-46 at the plate this season and are not recommended options this afternoon. Even as far as desperation fliers go in daily fantasy leagues, you can do better.

Nationals | Two Nats sitting Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:48:04 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman and OF Jayson Werth (hamstring) are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Matt den Dekker is leading off, and 1B Clint Robinson is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Tom Koehler is on the bump for the Fish, and den Dekker and Robinson aren't hitting above .100. Pass on them today.

Nationals | Washington sitting four starters

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:13:32 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor, 1B Ryan Zimmerman, C Wilson Ramos and SS Danny Espinosa are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Charlie Morton Sunday, April 17. OF Chris Heisey will start in center field and is batting first. 1B Clint Robinson will start at first base and is batting sixth. SS Stephen Drew will start at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Jose Lobaton will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: All four players in the starting lineup have not received a lot of playing time this season, but Heisey, Drew and Lobaton have posted decent batting averages so far. Owners probably should be able to find better options for their starting lineups and can avoid the players.
