Washington Nationals news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 00:34:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: No doubt this team needs a makeover from top to bottom. Despite the change in staff, hitters like Bryce Harper will do well as will pitchers like Max Scherzer. The new pitching coach could do wonders with a slightly rebuilt rotation, which will likely lose Jordan Zimmermann to free agency.

Fantasy Tip: The Nats missed the playoffs, but Bryce Harper cemented himself among the fantasy elite with a .330-42-99 season. He'll be nearly a lock for the first round of most drafts next season.

Fantasy Tip: Severino ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 1-for-1 in his career with a double and should only be used in FantasyScore if you are desperate for salary cap relief.

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob de Grom Sunday, Oct. 4. INF Anthony Rendon will bat leadoff and play third base, while INF Trea Turner will bat second and play second base.
Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is just 3-for-22 over the past week and should not be used in FantasyScore this afternoon. Turner ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Scherzer ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) capped an impressive season, and he should be one of the first pitchers select in fantasy drafts in 2016.

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:40:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The high-end prospect Turner ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hasn't done a lot in his young career and isn't worth a start against Matt Harvey on FantasyScore.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:32:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is 0-for-9 the last week and faces Matt Harvey, but he's having a comeback season. He's a low-end option worth consideration on FantasyScore.

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos is not in the starting lineup for the first game of a doubleheader against the New York Mets Saturday, Oct. 3. C Jose Lobaton will start at catcher against SP Noah Syndergaard and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Ramos ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should be in the lineup for the second game of the doubleheader. Lobaton ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .203 this season and is not a great option for owners.

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.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore and seasonal players will want to avoid all players from this game Friday.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 12:17:13 -0700
New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes (fingers) is starting in center field and batting third against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Friday, Oct. 2. SS Wilmer Flores (back) remains out of the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Cespedes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) owns a .577 OPS with just three runs and two RBI over his past 13 games. So given the nature of his injury and his current form, Cespedes checks out as a risky FantasyScore play Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) recorded his fifth consecutive quality start to end the season, although his streak of double-digit strikeout games ended at four. The Nationals went 8-2 in Strasburg's final 10 outings.
Thu, 01 Oct 2015 13:38:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been dealing with upper back spasms since Sunday, Sept. 27, and his status for the remaining games is in question, especially with nothing on the line for Washington. Turner ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is 8-for-19 in September, and he stands as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Thursday.
