Nationals | Anthony Rendon out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:42:28 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon is not in the Saturday, May 28, starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals. 3B Stephen Drew will bat seventh against Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a simple night off for Rendon, so scratch him from your DFS lineups. Drew is batting .138 at home this season and has a .105 career mark against Wainwright. Leave him on your bench.

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 | Daniel Murphy, Jayson Werth resting

Sun, 15 May 2016 09:17:09 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy and OF Jayson Werth are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Sunday, May 15. INF Stephen Drew will play second base and bat eighth, while 1B/OF Clint Robinson will bat fifth and play left field.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson is only hitting .194 but he has two home runs and eight RBI through 31 at-bats so he could be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in daily contests. Drew is batting .154 through 39 at-bats and is not a viable option in any fantasy format.

Nationals | Two Nationals regulars sitting

Sat, 14 May 2016 15:12:41 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth and SS Danny Espinosa are out of the lineup Saturday, May 14. OF Matt den Dekker is hitting sixth, and SS Stephen Drew is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Drew hit a pinch-hit homer yesterday, but he's hitting just .162. He's a bit of a shot in the dark against Kendry Flores in his major league debut. As for den Dekker, he's hitting .188 and doesn't have much power upside. Pass on him today.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy, Wilson Ramos resting

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:48:58 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy and C Wilson Ramos are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Saturday, May 7. INF Stephen Drew will play second base and bat seventh, while C Jose Lobaton starts behind the plate and bats eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Drew nor Lobaton should be viewed as a viable fantasy option this afternoon. Drew is just 3-for-30 at the plate this season with 11 strikeouts, while Lobaton is 6-for-33 with three RBI.

Nationals | Stephen Drew gets start at DH

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:13:18 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Stephen Drew is starting at designated hitter and batting seventh Monday, May 2, opposite Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: With the Nationals playing in an AL park the next few days, they get the luxury of being able to implement a designated hitter, which means a boost in playing time for Drew. Even so, he's a very unappealing option in daily leagues, as he's finished with a .201 batting average or less in each of the past two seasons. This year, he has just three hits in his first 24 at-bats.

Nationals | Two Nats take a seat

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:23:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and OF Michael Taylor are out of the lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Matt den Dekker is leading off, and 3B Stephen Drew is hitting eighth. C Wilson Ramos remains on the bereavement list with C Pedro Severino hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Drew and den Dekker are below the Mendoza Line and don't have enough upside for a start against Aaron Nola. Severino has four career at-bats, and he's not a great flyer either.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa resting Sunday

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:48:24 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Danny Espinosa is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Sunday, April 24. INF Stephen Drew will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Espinosa and Drew have struggled at the plate this season and neither player makes a great option in daily fantasy games at this point.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy out of the lineup

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 07:53:42 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Saturday, April 23. 2B Stephen Drew will start at second base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Drew has received some starts over the first few weeks of the season and has gone 3-for-12 at the plate. Drew is valuable in NL-only leagues but is not a great option in other leagues.

Nationals | Washington sitting four starters

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:13:32 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor, 1B Ryan Zimmerman, C Wilson Ramos and SS Danny Espinosa are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Charlie Morton Sunday, April 17. OF Chris Heisey will start in center field and is batting first. 1B Clint Robinson will start at first base and is batting sixth. SS Stephen Drew will start at shortstop and is batting seventh, while C Jose Lobaton will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: All four players in the starting lineup have not received a lot of playing time this season, but Heisey, Drew and Lobaton have posted decent batting averages so far. Owners probably should be able to find better options for their starting lineups and can avoid the players.
