Nationals | Several Nats regulars resting Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 09:53:44 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Of this afternoon's three replacements in the Washington lineup, Drew is the most productive source of salary cap relief for daily fantasy contests. He is 9-for-19 with two doubles, three home runs and eight RBI during the month of June and has raised his average for the season from .173 to .254.

Nationals | Wilson Ramos taking a seat vs. Chicago

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 13:45:25 -0700

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 9. C Jose Lobaton is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Ramos is off to a career-best start with 22 runs, eight home runs, 33 RBI and a .345/.392/.554 slash line, which makes him one of the best fantasy backstops thus far. Lobaton owns a .189/.283/.270 line over the past two seasons and is nothing more than a desperation start in all fantasy formats.

Nationals | Wilson Ramos not starting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:47:19 -0700

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos is not starting Saturday, May 28, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Ramos' replacement is C Jose Lobaton, who will bat eighth against Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright.

Fantasy Tip: This is simply a day off for Ramos, who has been in the lineup the entire week and managed at least one hit per game. Lobaton has a few hits but no extra-base power, and that should be a red flag for your DFS lineup. Leave him on the bench.

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.

Fri, 13 May 2016 12:05:51 -0700

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. C Jose Lobaton is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Lobaton is a very risky low-end catcher in daily formats tonight. The backstop has six hits in 34 at-bats (.176) and sports a career average of .223 in seven seasons. Look elsewhere.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy, Wilson Ramos resting

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:48:58 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Neither Drew nor Lobaton should be viewed as a viable fantasy option this afternoon. Drew is just 3-for-30 at the plate this season with 11 strikeouts, while Lobaton is 6-for-33 with three RBI.
