Nationals | Jayson Werth injures knee

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (knee) suffered a knee injury in the game Sunday, Aug. 11, against the Philadelphia Phillies. He said after the game that he thinks he'll be OK after the scheduled off day Monday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Werth's injury is a little bit of a quandary for fantasy owners. He has been red hot, but enters the new week with a little bit of an injury concern. It doesn't sound like a long-term injury, so roll with him in your active fantasy lineup. However, if you have a similar option who is healthy and has a seven-game week scheduled, you might want to go with him over Werth just to be on the safe side.
