Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos and SS Danny Espinosa are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with SS Stephen Drew and C Jose Lobaton hitting seventh and eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Drew is 3-for-9 (.333) with a homer the last week. He has a decent enough matchup against Matt Garza for a basement play. Lobaton doesn't hit enough to use in DFS.

Washington Nationals SS Danny Espinosa finished 2-for-4 and scored one of his team's two runs in a loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, July 05.
Fantasy Tip: Espinosa's average dipped as low as .196 early last month, but he went 22-for-63 over his final 21 June games and is batting .246 at the moment. Over his last 26 games, the Long Beach State product has scored 25 runs and is hitting .347 with 10 homers with 26 RBI. Those numbers play at any position, especially at the two he is eligible at in most leagues - second base and shortstop. As long as he's hitting like this, Espinosa is a must-start.

Washington Nationals SS Danny Espinosa went 4-for-5 with two home runs, six RBI and two runs scored in a 12-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, July 3, and he has five home runs and 15 RBI in his last four games.
Fantasy Tip: His average leaves a lot to be desired, but he provides plus power from the shortstop spot and should be owned in all formats.

Washington Nationals SS Danny Espinosa went 2-for-4 with two home runs and seven RBI in a 13-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, June 30.
Fantasy Tip: His batting average isn't prety, but Espinosa is up to 15 homers and 41 RBI. He is providing surprising power at a thin position, making him worth starting in just about every format.

Washington Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman, C Wilson Ramos and SS Danny Espinosa are not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Sunday, June 26. 1B Clint Robinson will bat sixth and play first base, INF Stephen Drew will bat seventh and play shortstop and C Jose Lobaton will bat eighth and start behind the plate.
Fantasy Tip: Of this afternoon's three replacements in the Washington lineup, Drew is the most productive source of salary cap relief for daily fantasy contests. He is 9-for-19 with two doubles, three home runs and eight RBI during the month of June and has raised his average for the season from .173 to .254.

Washington Nationals SS Danny Espinosa went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Tuesday, June 21, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Fantasy Tip: Espinosa has turned up the power, posting seven homers in 18 games in the month of June. And 11 of his 13 home runs have come in the past 24 games dating back to May 25. He has re-emerged as a must-start in all head-to-head fantasy leagues, but he has less usefulness in rotisserie leagues due to his poor batting average.
