Thu, 02 Jul 2015 18:36:05 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been equally dreadful against lefties, hitting .190 with a .513 OPS, but with Jake Peavy on the mound Friday, Span should be an great mid-range play at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) receives a nice value boost setting the table for the Nats. den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should be avoided in all formats. Make sure to check back on Span's availability for the rest of the series, as this isn't the first time he has missed time due to back spasms.

Fantasy Tip: Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) only missed a game, and typically, he would be a solid value play, but Archer is a daunting matchup. Over his past seven games, Span has reached base at a .441 clip with five runs, two doubles, three RBI and three stolen bases to continue his solid season.

Nationals | Denard Span sitting vs. Rays

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 13:08:48 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 17. OF Michael Taylor is batting eighth and playing center field against Tampa Bay Rays SP Steven Geltz Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Consider it more of a rest day than anything else for Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) Wednesday. He is having an excellent season and was riding a hot stretch, where he had reached base at a .441 clip over his past seven games with five runs, two doubles, three RBI and three stolen bases. When called upon, Taylor ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been rather mediocre and sports a .651 OPS. He should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had no problems with his back in this one, and he should be good to go moving forward for folks playing at FantasyScore. When healthy, Span has been one of the more consistent leadoff hitters in baseball this year. He should continue to be a source of solid production on FantasyScore.

Nationals | Denard Span scratched late

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:08:15 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) was scratched from the game Tuesday, June 9, against the New York Yankees. OF Michael Taylor will take Span's place in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) draws into a tough spot against RHP Masahiro Tanaka. Taylor has fared relatively well against righties this season, with a .245 average and three home runs in 102 plate appearances, but he carries plenty of risk against such an elite starting pitcher. Taylor should be left alone.

Nationals | Denard Span in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 13:45:42 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) is in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: When in the lineup, Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been one of the more consistent leadoff hitters in the game this year, although he doesn't run much. After all, there is quite a lot of value setting the table for this potent lineup. Tanaka looked good in his first start back from the DL, but there could be plenty of ups and downs for him as he fights through an elbow injury.

Nationals | Denard Span exits with back issue

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 19:09:43 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Denard Span (back) exited against the Chicago Cubs after his back locked up Sunday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Span ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been in a bit of a slump recently, scoring just one run in his last nine games, and the back issue won't help matters. Even if he is back in the lineup for Washington's next game, he should probably be avoided at FantasyScore.
