Nationals | Danny Espinosa goes deep again

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:00:05 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Danny Espinosa homered for the second straight game, going 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 6-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Espinosa is still hitting just .203, and it is only a matter of time before Trea Turner is called up to take his place. Turner should be stashed in all formats.

Nationals | Bryce Harper ends drought

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:44:51 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper snapped a 4-for-33 drought with a solo home run, his first home run since May 13, in a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: The homer is an encouraging sign, but you may want to wait until Harper goes on an extended hot streak before paying up for him in daily formats.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy receives some rest

Thu, 26 May 2016 12:31:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. 2B Stephen Drew is starting at the keystone and is hitting seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: The left-handed hitting Drew has some pop in his lumber but is a desperation daily selection, as he's hitting just .140/.208/.302 with two home runs in 43 at-bats. He hit .201 in 383 at-bats for the Yankees last season.

Nationals | Tanner Roark suffers hard-luck loss

Wed, 25 May 2016 17:31:48 -0700

Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark (3-4) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the New York Mets Wednesday, May 25, with two walks and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Roark has a losing record despite a respectable 2.71 ERA over 10 starts thanks to a lack of run support from his teammates. He has a favorable matchup against the weak-hitting Philadelphia Phillies in his next scheduled start Monday, May 30.

Nationals | Bryce Harper slumping

Wed, 25 May 2016 17:16:25 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is hitless in his last 10 at-bats and has seen his batting average drop to a season-low .245 mark. He is batting just .200 over his last 100 at-bats dating back to April 18, and hasn't homered since May 13.

Fantasy Tip: DFS players will probably want to think twice about inserting Harper into their lineups at his current price tag but seasonal owners should continue starting him in the hopes that he will snap out of his funk soon.

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 | Bryce Harper given mental break

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:08:07 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper was given a "mental day off" Wednesday, May 25. "I told him to do nothing, just concentrate and watch the game," manager Dusty Baker said. "You can straighten yourself out by watching others and by what they're doing or not doing."

Fantasy Tip: Harper has been struggling with the lack of pitches he has seen to hit. He'll return to being the daily consideration that he has been all year when he likely returns Thursday.

Nationals | Ben Revere out of the lineup

Wed, 25 May 2016 08:39:10 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25, with OF Michael Taylor leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is hitting just .190 on the season and .241 against left-handers. He's facing a formidable one in Steven Matz. Taylor has upside today at leadoff, but it's only at the right price in DFS.

Nationals | Bryce Harper takes a seat

Wed, 25 May 2016 08:37:33 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25, with 2B Daniel Murphy hitting third. OF Chris Heisey is hitting seventh and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy refuses to cool off as he has a robust .411-5-19 line this month. He's one of the top few players at his position in fantasy. Heisey has some upside against left-hander Steven Matz as he has hit well against lefties in his career. He's a low-end option to consider today.

Nationals | Ben Revere smacks fifth career HR

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:20:59 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere went 2-for-3 with his first home run of the season and the fifth of his career Tuesday, May 24, against the New York Mets. He finished with two runs scored, one RBI and one double, and he also drew a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Owners never even think about power when drafting Revere, so it's always a special occasion when Washington's speedy leadoff man goes yard. He's been struggling this year after coming back from injury but hopefully tonight's solid performance can get him going. He's still a few batting average points below the Mendoza Line at .194.

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.
