Nationals | Two Nats sit

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:17:17 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and OF Jayson Werth are out of the lineup Saturday, June 18, with OF Michael Taylor hitting second and 3B Stephen Drew hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is hitting .333 this month, and he's a good flyer against Colin Rea as he's hitting ahead of Bryce Harper. Drew is 8-for-16 with three homers this month, and he, too, is a low-end flyer with a good matchup.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon sitting vs. Phillies

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 13:35:10 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 10. INF Stephen Drew is starting at third base and batting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jeremy Hellickson Friday.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like a routine night off for Rendon. He has been scorching hot with 17 runs, 13 extra-base hits (four home runs), 15 RBI and three stolen bases since Tuesday, May 10. Over the past three years, Drew has a .178/.258/.354 slash line through 792 plate appearances, which makes him a low-end fantasy option in all formats.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon in fine form

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 14:36:47 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon has a .348/.442/.596 slash line since Tuesday, May 10, and he is batting .389 so far in June.

Fantasy Tip: It is always wise to look into the dates of arbitrary stat grabs, and in this case, looking at Rendon's numbers since Tuesday, May 17, is more beneficial. This sample size reflects Rendon's demotion down the lineup from the two-hole, and through those 19 games, he has a .358/.442/.657 slash line, including 12 runs, four home runs, 14 RBI and two stolen bases. This is the five-category production owners hoped for when they targeted Rendon in the early middle rounds this spring. View Rendon as a high-end fantasy option in all setups going forward.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon posts big stat line

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:51:28 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon went 3-for-5 with a double, home run, two runs scored and three RBIs Tuesday, June 7, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon is picking up the pace offensively, going 23-for-64 (.359) with six doubles, a triple, four homers and 14 RBIs over the past 18 games to raise his average from .229 to .267 just since May 17. He has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option across all formats and DFS play.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon hits sixth home run

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 05:19:14 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run during the Nationals' 6-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon has an active 28-for-79 stretch (.354 batting average) at the plate with 14 runs, 11 extra-base hits, 12 RBI, three stolen bases and a 1.040 OPS over his past 23 games. This is the five-category return that made Rendon a fantasy star during the 2014 season. If there is a buy-low window out there, pounce now.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon, Wilson Ramos playing

Sun, 29 May 2016 07:52:46 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and C Wilson Ramos are back in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Sunday, May 29. In addition, OF Michael Taylor will play center field and bat second. OF Jayson Werth is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon is 8-for-19 (.421) with three runs scored against the Cardinals this season and Ramos is batting .325 with three home runs and 13 RBI through 80 at-bats this month, so both players are worth starting in all formats. Taylor is batting just .209 through 43 at-bats in May and should be avoided.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:42:28 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon is not in the Saturday, May 28, starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals. 3B Stephen Drew will bat seventh against Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a simple night off for Rendon, so scratch him from your DFS lineups. Drew is batting .138 at home this season and has a .105 career mark against Wainwright. Leave him on your bench.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon picking it up

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:11:02 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon is 10-for-24 (.417) with five extra-base hits and eight RBI in his last seven games.

Fantasy Tip: After a really slow start in April, Rendon is starting to show signs of turning things around. His average is up to .254, and he has three home runs, 14 RBI and five stolen bases. The window to buy low may be ending, and Rendon should contribute nicely across multiple categories for the remainder of the season.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon drives in two

Wed, 18 May 2016 20:35:36 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon went 2-for-3 with two RBI against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon has recorded six hits and three RBI over the last five games and will continue to be in the everyday lineup. Rendon is hitting only .237 so far this season but should still be a starting option in most leagues.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon dropped to sixth

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:07:01 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon is hitting sixth in the lineup Tuesday, May 17, against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Although Rendon is hitting .318 in the past week and has a .429 mark this year against Syndergaard, overall it hasn't been a good season. Rendon is hitting .203 this month and .195 against opponents on the road. By going into a lower spot, the team hopes some of the pressure is taken off of Rendon. For now, Remdon carries little fantasy value.
