Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (illness) is dealing with a stomach virus, according to manager Matt Williams. The team is hoping that he can return to action Friday, March 27.
Fantasy Tip: Harper ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will be just fine and is a candidate to break out in 2015 if he can stay healthy. He should be a fine play in the opening week of the season at FantasyScore in one of your outfield slots.

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper came into camp with a slimmed-down physique this year. "I was able to do the things I wanted to do when I was in high school and college," Harper said of his offseason fitness regimen. "Switching things up a little bit, more fast-paced workouts. I'm doing 1,000 reps workout in 45 minutes. Just trying to roll through it as quick as I can, doing the things I need to do to get a little leaner and do things like that, but my strength is still there, my power is still there, so I feel very good."
Fantasy Tip: Harper comes with some injury risk, but once some of the big names come off the board in the first several rounds, he'll look attractive. If he can remain healthy for the majority of the season, Harper could finally have that breakout season everyone was hoping for in 2014.
