Nationals | Two Nats take a seat

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:23:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and OF Michael Taylor are out of the lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Matt den Dekker is leading off, and 3B Stephen Drew is hitting eighth. C Wilson Ramos remains on the bereavement list with C Pedro Severino hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Drew and den Dekker are below the Mendoza Line and don't have enough upside for a start against Aaron Nola. Severino has four career at-bats, and he's not a great flyer either.

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:25:38 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Sunday, April 24. OF Matt den Dekker will lead off and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Harper leads the majors with eight homers and 22 RBI but is receiving his first day off this season, so he should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Den Dekker is just 2-for-15 at the plate this year and is not a recommended option for daily games.

Nationals | Michael Taylor, Jayson Werth resting

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:42:27 -0700

Washington Nationals OFs Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. OF Chris Heisey is in left field and hitting leadoff, while OF Matt den Dekker is the center fielder and is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has some notable pop as an extra. He hit a career-high 18 home runs with the Reds back in 2011, and he could pay off as a dart throw if you're looking to save money in daily leagues. Den Dekker can be ignored.

Nationals | Michael Taylor on the bench

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 07:58:01 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor is not in the starting lineup for the first game of a doubleheader against the New York Mets Saturday, Oct. 3. OF Matt den Dekker will start right field against SP Noah Syndergaard and is batting seventh, while OF Bryce Harper will start in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) likely will be in the lineup for the second game and is receiving the first game off. den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has eight hits, two home runs and three RBI over his last six games and by be a cheaper option if owners on FantasyScore wants to use an expensive player at another position.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar, Michael Taylor resting

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 14:02:58 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar and OF Michael Taylor are both resting Tuesday, Sept. 29, against the Atlanta Braves. SS Trea Turner and OF Matt den Dekker are in the lineup, with Turner hitting second and den Dekker hitting seventh against Braves SP Matt Wisler.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Taylor ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) appear to be getting normal nights off from the lineup, and this is Escobar's second day off in a row. Escobar is hitting .125 against Wisler and Taylor is a .200 career hitter. Turner ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) could be a deep sleeper entering 2016, as the Nationals are high enough on him to let Ian Desmond walk via free agency.

Nationals | Nats regulars being rested

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 11:11:08 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar, SS Ian Desmond and OF Jayson Werth are all out of the lineup Monday, Sept. 28. 2B Anthony Rendon moves to third base and is hitting third, SS Trea Turner is starting at the 6 and hitting second and OF Matt den Dekker is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan. 2B Dan Uggla draws a start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has some appeal as a deep sleeper because of his upside on FantasyScore, but Rendon ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is realistically the only player here worth putting into your FantasyScore lineup. Despite no homers against lefties this year, he's batting .328 (19-for-58) against them.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Taylor ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) from your daily lineups. den Dekker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than desperation cap relief in FantasyScore.
