Nationals | Daniel Murphy once again scorches Mets

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:14:46 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy finished 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI Tuesday, May 24, opposite the New York Mets. One of his two hits went for his seventh home run of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Geez, if it wasn't bad enough for the Mets that Murphy just keeps on raking, the 31-year-old is now 8-for-19 with a pair of homers and six RBI in only five games facing his former club. Regardless, Murphy has picked up where he left off during his smoking hot postseason and should be regularly featured on all fantasy starting rosters.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg goes to 8-0

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:06:40 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg improved to 8-0 after winning his start Tuesday, May 24, over the New York Mets. He worked 6 2/3 innings, surrendering two runs on four hits and two walks, while tying a season high with 11 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: With another quality performance under his belt, Strasburg moves another step closer to being this year's starting pitcher for the National League in the All-Star Game. He's simply been lights out, as he now owns a 86-to-18 K/BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings to go with his nifty 2.79 ERA. Strasburg has always had as high a ceiling as anybody and now he's reaching it on a consistent basis.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez has rough outing

Mon, 23 May 2016 22:19:07 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez allowed seven runs on 10 hits in five innings against the New York Mets Monday, May 23, to suffer his second loss of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his nine starts this season but has allowed 12 runs in the other two games. He is scheduled to face the St. Louis Cardinals in his next start and should be a decent option in most leagues.

Nationals | Bryce Harper struggling

Mon, 23 May 2016 22:11:39 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper went 0-for-4 against the New York Mets Monday, May 23, and is hitting only .220 over his last 100 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Harper has only eight hits in his last 16 games and has only two home runs and six RBI this month. Harper should continue to be a starter in all standard leagues, but owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to consider other options until he breaks out of his slump.

Nationals | Ben Revere has strong day

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:44:22 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere had three hits, two runs, two RBIs and his first two stolen bases of the year in an 8-2 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday, May 22. Revere now has a .185 batting average.

Fantasy Tip: Keep in mind Revere has only played in 15 games this season between a stint on the disabled list. His bat may be finally warming up. Give it a couple more games to see if that is the case before you invest a roster spot in daily or annual leagues.

Nationals | Another quality start for Max Scherzer

Sun, 22 May 2016 13:23:21 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer struck out eight, gave up six hits, walked none and threw 103 pitches Sunday, May 22, in an 8-2 win over the Miami Marlins. Scherzer has 38 strikeouts in his past three starts, and he is now 5-3 overall.

Fantasy Tip: His strikeout total declined a bit from the 20K effort against the Detroit Tigers, but Scherzer is still having a phenomenal stretch. Scherzer is a strong pitcher in all formats, as right now he is the linchpin of the Nationals rotation.

Nationals | Several WAS regulars return to lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:10:37 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman, OF Jayson Werth and C Wilson Ramos are back in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Despite getting off to a lackluster start this year, Werth is batting .455 (10-for-22) with three home runs and seven RBI versus left-handed pitching, making him worthy of lineup consideration for daily fantasy games. Ramos is batting .333 in 72 at-bats on the road and is hitting .339 overall, so he should be viewed as a potential value play.

Nationals | Three Nats on the bench

Sat, 21 May 2016 13:58:36 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth, 1B Ryan Zimmerman and C Wilson Ramos are out of the lineup Saturday, May 21. OF Chris Heisey is hitting second, 1B Clint Robinson hits fifth and C Jose Lobaton hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has rather pedestrian numbers on the year, but he has two homers in 15 at-bats this month. He has a tough draw against Jose Fernandez, but he has upside ahead of Bryce Harper. Robinson has a .294-2-6 line in 17 at-bats this month and has taken Fernandez deep before. He's a fringe option worth consideration today. Lobaton doesn't have the offensive potential for the stream today.

Nationals | Tanner Roark defeats Miami Friday

Fri, 20 May 2016 19:20:26 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark (3-3) allowed one run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings in a victory over the Miami Marlins Friday, May 20, with two walks and seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Roark defeated the Marlins for the first time in four tries this season. Prior to tonight's win, he had gone 0-3 with an 8.40 ERA versus the Fish in 2016, while going 2-0 with an 0.79 ERA in five starts against the rest of the league. He should be viewed as a viable pitching option versus the New York Mets Wednesday, May 25.

Nationals | Michael Taylor leading off vs. the Fish

Fri, 20 May 2016 13:32:28 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor is playing center field and leading off against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday, May 20. OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor projects to see regular playing time in center field against left-handed pitchers, but he owns an underwhelming career .244/.299/.393 slash line against southpaws. Taylor also failed to take advantage of and push for more playing after Revere's early-season injury. View Taylor as a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Friday, but he is nothing more than a depth option in deep mixed and NL-only formats at this point. Revere is worth owning in all formats because of his speed. He's averaged 35 stolen bases per year since 2011, after all.

Nationals | Stephen Strasburg fans 10

Thu, 19 May 2016 20:05:08 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Stephen Strasburg improved to 7-0 with a win over the New York Mets Thursday, May 19, allowing one run on six hits while striking out 10 and walking one over six innings.

Fantasy Tip: Strasburg has now struck out at least seven batters in eight straight starts, and he is becoming a must-start option in daily formats whenever he takes the mound.

Nationals | Bryce Harper hitless against Matt Harvey

Thu, 19 May 2016 10:35:39 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is 0-for-20 lifetime against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey, who starts Thursday, May 19. That is one hitless at-bat shy of the biggest active drought against a pitcher in baseball.

Fantasy Tip: Harper is struggling overall as he's hitting .195 this month. He has walked 28 times this month. He can break out at any point so take this tidbit with a grain of salt. He's a daily consideration in DFS, but if his price is too high, there are signs to avoid him today.

Nationals | Gio Gonzalez has solid outing

Wed, 18 May 2016 20:48:18 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez allowed one run on five hits in 6 1/3 innings against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 18, to pick up his third win of the season. He struck out five batters and walked one in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has allowed two or fewer runs in seven of his first eight games this season and currently has a 1.86 ERA. He is scheduled to face the New York Mets again in his next start and should be a fine starting option in all leagues.

Nationals | Bryce Harper continues to walk

Wed, 18 May 2016 20:40:41 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper went 0-for-1 with one run scored and four walks against the New York Mets Wednesday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Harper has been walked 28 times so far this month and leads the league in that category. Harper is gone hitless in his last four games but should still be a must-start option in all leagues.

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.
