Braves | Nick Markakis expected back Friday

Wed, 04 May 2016 16:59:38 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is expected to return to the starting lineup Friday, May 6, after leaving the team because of a family emergency. The Braves do not play Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Markakis has been a hitting machine (.281, 27-for-96 with 20 RBI), but he doesn't run much these days and has isn't a lock for double-digit home runs anymore, either. You can count on him to buoy your average, but not for much else, which makes him a mediocre fantasy talent in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Braves | Nick Markakis out Wednesday

Wed, 04 May 2016 08:14:50 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis (personal) is out Wednesday, May 4, due to a family emergency. He's expected to return Friday, May 6, after the off day. OF Mallex Smith is hitting leadoff, according to MLB.com.

Fantasy Tip: Smith has turned it up the last seven days, going 8-for-15 (.533) with a homer and three RBI. He's facing lefty Steven Matz today, though, which trumps most of his DFS luster. He's an extremely low-end flyer today.

Braves | Nick Markakis likes leadoff spot

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 10:04:16 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is 15-for-49 (.306) with a .424 on-base percentage and 11 RBI since he moved to the leadoff spot April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Markakis makes a lot of contact and gets on base often, but he has no home runs despite 19 RBI on the season. He's an acceptable player to roster in deep mixed leagues to buoy your average, but he won't help all that much in the counting stats.

Braves | Nick Markakis drives in three Thursday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:57:34 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis went 4-for-5 with a double and three RBI in a victory over the Boston Red Sox Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Markakis leads the National League in doubles (10) and is batting .305 through his first 22 games of the season, although he is still looking for his first home run of the year. He could be useful to owners in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues who want to improve their batting average.

Braves | Nick Markakis coming up clutch

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 15:31:40 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis is 11-for-21 (.524) with runners on base this year, which is third in the majors behind Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (.600, 6-for-10) and Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (.583, 7-for-12).

Fantasy Tip: Markakis has been one of the few consistent hitters for Atlanta in the early going. He's hitting .333 (15-for-45) but has no home runs despite 12 RBI. He doesn't run much, though, and won't hit for power, so he's strictly a batting average asset in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Braves | Nick Markakis keeps hitting

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 19:12:07 -0700

Braves | Two more doubles for Nick Markakis

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 21:49:18 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis posted a pair of doubles and two RBIs Monday, April 11, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't all great, as Markakis did ground into a double play. He has a .333 average with six doubles and a .583 slugging percentage so far. While the Braves are 0-6, not everyone is in a funk. Markakis remains a solid fantasy option and DFS play despite the team's overall woes.

Braves | Nick Markakis has three doubles Sunday

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 15:35:12 -0700

Atlanta Braves OF Nick Markakis had three doubles Sunday, April 10, in a 12-7 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Markakis is showing signs of coming out of the slump that dogged him in the past year. If he can do that, Markakis will be a decent fantasy option. He's not a regular outfield option by far, but Markakis could be a solid fourth outfielder for most leagues.

Orioles | Nick Markakis a trade target for O's?

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 09:40:46 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles have looked into reacquiring OF Nick Markakis from the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: An increasing ground-ball rate gives very little hope that Markakis will rebound in the home run category, even if he went back to hitter-friendly Camden Yards. He's an average-driven fantasy commodity as depth for your outfield corps.
