Nationals | Anthony Rendon scratched Tuesday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:06:32 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon (flu) is out of the lineup again Tuesday, July 19, due to the flu. 2B Daniel Murphy will start at third base and SS Trea Turner will fill in for Murphy at second against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir.

Fantasy Tip: This is the second straight game Rendon has missed, so stay tuned and see how much more time Rendon will be out. This should not be a long-lasting ailment requiring time on the disabled list. Murphy has hits in each of his last five games, and assuming he stays healthy Murphy's fantasy value will be high. As for Turner, he hasn't seen enough steady action to recommend putting him in your lineup.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy remains sidelined Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 08:03:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Chad Kuhl Sunday, July 17. 1B Clint Robinson will bat fifth and play first base, while INF Stephen Drew will bat seventh and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: With 1B Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) on the disabled list, Robinson is seeing the bulk of the action at first base but he should be viewed as a low-end option in the majority of fantasy formats. Drew is 6-for-18 (.333) during the month of July and makes a productive source of cap relief in DFS.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy likely for 1B Sunday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 21:00:13 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is likely to return Sunday, July 17, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. However, manager Dusty Baker said he expects Murphy to play first base "because it's less grueling and twisting than at second base."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in seasonal formats will want to see Murphy officially return and make it through a full game before trusting him again.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy day-to-day

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 05:26:55 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy (hamstring) is considered day-to-day because of hamstring tightness and is not sure if he will be able to play against the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, July 16.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy probably will not need to be placed on the disabled list but could miss a few more games because of the injury. Trea Turner and Stephen Drew are candidates to start at second base and are solid options in daily fantasy leagues.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy scratched

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 14:34:00 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy (leg) was scratched from the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, July 15, because of general leg soreness, the Nationals announced.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy has been everything fantasy owners could have hoped for ... and then some. Check back for his status Saturday, July 16, but this sounds like a minor ailment. Expect Clint Robinson to draw into the lineup in place of Murphy.

Nationals | Clint Robinson not in Friday lineup

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:16:16 -0700

Washington Nationals 1B Clint Robinson is not starting Friday, July 15, against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano. 2B Daniel Murphy is at first base and will hit third, and 2B Trea Turner is in the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: The lefty vs. lefty matchup is the main reason why Robinson is out. Murphy has been blowing up at the plate and is a must-play in all formats. As for Turner, he is a .429 hitter but largely will see time off the bench. Assuming he hits well, Turner may be worth a low-cost flyer in DFS leagues.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy continues Mets mastery

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 13:20:00 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy hit his seventh home run of the year Sunday, July 10, in a 3-2 win over the New York Mets. Murphy leads the National League with a .348 average at the All-Star break Murphy had three homers and 10 runs batted in during the current Mets series, and he is 22-for-52 (.423) with 21 RBIs against the Mets this year.

Fantasy Tip: If ever there was a player that destroyed his old club, this was the one. However, Murphy is doing very well across the board, and he should be played in all formats.

Nationals | Trea Turner, Michael Taylor starting

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:31:39 -0700

Washington Nationals INF Trea Turner will bat leadoff and play second base against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 10, with INF Daniel Murphy hitting third and playing first base. In addition, OF Michael Taylor will bat seventh and play center field, with OF Ben Revere receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Turner is 3-for-3 with a double and a walk this season and is worthy of consideration as a value play in daily fantasy games because of his upside. Taylor is batting .286 in 63 at-bats since June 1, and is hitting .262 versus lefties and .271 in day games. He should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option in DFS.

Nationals | Daniel Murphy drives in four

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 20:26:42 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Daniel Murphy went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, four RBI, a run scored and a walk in a 6-1 win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 9, and he has six home runs against the Mets this year.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy has been an excellent fantasy option all season, but he has been particularly dominant against his former team. Keep that trend in mind for DFS play.
