Nationals | Bryce Harper hitless against Matt Harvey

Thu, 19 May 2016 10:35:39 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is 0-for-20 lifetime against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey, who starts Thursday, May 19. That is one hitless at-bat shy of the biggest active drought against a pitcher in baseball.

Fantasy Tip: Harper is struggling overall as he's hitting .195 this month. He has walked 28 times this month. He can break out at any point so take this tidbit with a grain of salt. He's a daily consideration in DFS, but if his price is too high, there are signs to avoid him today.

Nationals | Bryce Harper in a rut

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:44:39 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is batting .170 (9-for-53) with 23 strikeouts and two extra-base hits (both home runs) in his last 19 games.

Fantasy Tip: Harper's average is down to .256 on the season, and he has 11 home runs and 29 RBI. Even the best sluggers have their struggles, and Harper is no different. The good news is he's still reaching base often with a league-leading 41 free passes. You're not benching him in seasonal leagues, but don't pay up for him right now in daily formats.

Nationals | Bryce Harper on record pace

Mon, 16 May 2016 09:07:24 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper already has 24 walks in 14 games in May after walking 17 times in April. He's on pace for 175 walks in 2016. Barry Bonds is the only other player to walk more times in a season.

Fantasy Tip: Opposing teams are starting to pitch around Harper more and more to avoid serious damage with runners on base in front of him. While the strategy will likely cut down on Harper's RBI totals at the end of the year, it shouldn't worry his owners in the long run. He remains an elite player in all aspects.
