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 C Wilson Ramos is hitting cleanup Monday, July 4.

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 1. C Jose Lobaton is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani.
Fantasy Tip: Ramos has been the most productive fantasy catcher in all of baseball this year. It looks like he's just receiving a normal day off. Lobaton is under the Mendoza Line this year and should be avoided in all fantasy formats this evening.

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.
