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.

Sat, 14 May 2016 14:29:13 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper dropped the appeal of his one-game suspension and will sit out Saturday, May 14. OF Chris Heisey replaces him in right field, and he's hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has four homers in 31 at-bats this season. He's a basement option against Kendry Flores in DFS Saturday.

Nationals | Chris Heisey draws rare start

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:40:20 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Chris Heisey will start in left field and bat ninth Tuesday, May 3, opposite Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey is getting the start here with the Nationals being able to use an extra bat while playing in an American League park. He's a dart throw, though, for daily games, as he really doesn't offer anything other than the potential home run. For what it's worth, however, Heisey does have three homers already in his first 23 at-bats.

Nationals | Michael Taylor not starting

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 07:51:01 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes Saturday, April 23. OF Chris Heisey will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has been used mostly as a pinch hitter this season and has three hits in 13 at-bats. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better players to use in their lineups and can avoid Heisey.

Nationals | Jayson Werth exits with injury Wednesday

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 18:04:46 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth (undisclosed) left the game against the Miami Marlins in the fifth inning Wednesday, April 20, due to an undisclosed injury. He was replaced in left field by OF Chris Heisey.

Fantasy Tip: Check back later for updates on Werth's injury. If he is forced to miss an extended period of time, Heisey would likely receive a great deal of action in left field and would see an increase in fantasy value in NL-only formats.

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.

Nationals | Michael Taylor, Jayson Werth resting

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:42:27 -0700

Washington Nationals OFs Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. OF Chris Heisey is in left field and hitting leadoff, while OF Matt den Dekker is the center fielder and is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has some notable pop as an extra. He hit a career-high 18 home runs with the Reds back in 2011, and he could pay off as a dart throw if you're looking to save money in daily leagues. Den Dekker can be ignored.

Dodgers | Chris Heisey hits slam Thursday

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 18:30:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Chris Heisey went 1-for-3 with a grand slam against the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday, Sept. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Even though it was Heisey's ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) 50th career home run, it was his first of the season. He has struggled at the plate this year, only batting .173 in 52 at-bats and is not a recommended outfield option in FantasyScore unless you're in desperate need of salary cap relief.

Dodgers | Handful of Dodgers lefties sitting

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:20:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, OFs Carl Crawford, Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier and C Yasmani Grandal are all out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting leadoff, SS Jimmy Rollins is at shortstop and hitting second, OF Scott Van Slyke is at first base and hitting fifth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and OFs Chris Heisey and Scott Schebler round out the bottom of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to like here on FantasyScore with the overhaul of the L.A. lineup this afternoon against a southpaw. In fact, Corbin ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) makes a nice contrarian play if you're feeling lucky with a weak Dodgers lineup today.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out again

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 15:04:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out again Saturday, Sept. 19, with OF Chris Heisey hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier is sitting for the fourth straight start against a left-hander. Heisey ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 5-for-15 (.333) with two homers and five RBIs lifetime against Francisco Liriano and is a sneaky basement flyer on FantasyScore.
