Fantasy Tip: Harper has been smacking the ball as of late and helping the Nationals do quite well in the standings. Barring a huge injury or setback, Harper belongs in any daily or overall league you have.

Nationals | Bryce Harper drives in three

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 16:38:39 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Harper has at least one hit in five of his last six games with two home runs and five RBI during that span. He should be a starting option in all leagues even though he has seen a small dip in his batting average this season.

Nationals | Bryce Harper, Ben Revere sitting

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 12:09:12 -0700

Washington Nationals OFs Bryce Harper and Ben Revere are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP Brandon Finnegan Thursday, June 30. OF Michael Taylor is starting in center field and leading off, while OF Chris Heisey starts in right and is batting seventh. C Wilson Ramos moves into the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Harper and Revere have a routine day off against a southpaw. Get them out of your starting lineups. Taylor has a good combination of power and speed that plays well in the leadoff spot, and he's surely attractive as a low-priced outfielder in DFS. Heisey is more of a low-end play. Ramos is having the best fantasy season for a catcher this year and should be fired up everywhere.

Nationals | Bryce Harper slugs 16th homer

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 22:57:18 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper went 2-for-4, including a two-run home run, and scored twice in a win against the New York Mets on Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Harper's power has disappeared since coming out of the gate on fire to start the season, but three homers in 12 games is a marked improvement over the 14-game homerless streak he had leading up to it. Owners can take solace in the fact the ball is starting to find some gaps this month (.286) after he hit .200 in May. Even in what can be considered a down year so far (.258, 16 homers, 46 RBI, 45 runs and 10 steals), Harper is still a top-20 outfielder.

Nationals | Bryce Harper has success at Petco

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:56:15 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is hitting .476 with three home runs in his career at Petco Park. However, he has just one hit and three strikeouts in six at-bats against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich, who Harper is facing Friday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Harper went deep Thursday night for the first time since May 28, so Petco Park has been good to him. Friedrich isn't an overpowering lefty and Harper's small sample size against him shouldn't scare off owners in traditional leagues. However, you may want to think twice before paying Harper's high daily price.

Nationals | Bryce Harper homers in win

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 23:46:27 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper hit his 14th home run of the season Thursday, June 16, in an 8-5 win over the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Harper has a .254 batting average, but his slugging percentage is a robust .502. You don't need to worry about what Harper will do when placed in your lineup. That's a subtle hint Harper should be active in all formats. It looks like he and fellow teammate Jayson Werth are going to go on a tear this summer.

Nationals | Bryce Harper receiving day off

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 10:36:46 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Sunday, June 12. OF Chris Heisey will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has been used mostly as a pinch hitter but has only three hits in his last 12 games. Owners in daily fantasy leagues will be able to find better options to use and can avoid Heisey.

Nationals | Bryce Harper drives in three

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:50:28 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBIs Tuesday, June 7, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Harper isn't doing any favors for his fantasy owners, hitting just .249 on the season. And this was his first multi-RBI performance in 20 games dating back to May 13. Still, he remains an obvious must-start fantasy option, as he'll get back on track.

Nationals | Bryce Harper collects three hits

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 14:04:16 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper went 3-for-5 and scored twice Sunday, June 5, in a wild 10-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: In what was easily his best game since missing two games of the knee contusion earlier in the week, Harper gave his owners one of the best showings he's had since going berserk in April. Despite his disappointing .249 average, keep the 2015 National League MVP in fantasy lineups as the Nationals travel to yet another hitters' haven (their last two series have been in Philadelphia and Cincinnati) on Tuesday when they visit the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

Nationals | Bryce Harper returns to lineup

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 13:58:53 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) is back in the starting lineup and is facing Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Friday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Harper last played May 30 after being hit by a pitch on his knee. He's good to go now and should be returned to all starting lineups in seasonal leagues. Harper was hitting just .200 (16-for-80) with four home runs and 10 RBI in May, though, so those in daily setups may consider twice before paying up for the young stud slugger.
