Nationals | Anthony Rendon avoids arbitration

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 14:15:30 -0800

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon re-signed a one-year, $2.8 million contract to avoid arbitration Friday, Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: There is bounce-back potential for Rendon this season, and reaching for him in the early middle rounds isn't out of the question this spring. He has the potential to reward you with a five-category return, which is a rare commodity, especially for a hitter eligible at second base. Don't fret his down 2015 season.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon moving back to hot corner

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 13:24:31 -0800

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon will move back to third base this season with INF Yunel Escobar traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, Dec. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon was a fantasy nightmare in 2015, especially considering his was billed as a potential first-round talent entering the season. There is bounce-back potential and reaching for Rendon in the early middle rounds isn't out of the question this spring, as he has the potential to provide a five-category return.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar could be trade bait

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:08:08 -0800

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar could be a trade option this offseason after hitting .314 with a .790 OPS last year. The Nationals already have 2B Danny Espinosa, SS Trea Turner and 2B Wilmer Difo. Escobar is under contract for $7 million in 2016 with a $7 million team option for 2017. 3B Anthony Rendon will be entrenched at third base.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar had a career year in 2015, thanks largely in part to Rendon's early season injury giving him a shot to hold down the starting third base job. Even if Escobar remains in Washington, he's unlikely to see the kind of playing time that made him valuable in the majority of fantasy leagues. Expect some regression in 2016, so don't pay for his 2015 peak.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon likely to play hot corner

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 17:43:46 -0700

The Washington Nationals are expected to move INF Anthony Rendon back to third base next season. He played 59 games at third base and 28 games at second base in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: For Rendon, a potential return to third base means he would be playing a position that's less physically demanding. He hit .264 with five home runs and 25 RBIs over 311 at-bats in an injury-plagued 2015 campaign which saw him slowed by oblique, knee, side and quadriceps issues.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:05:09 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob de Grom Sunday, Oct. 4. INF Anthony Rendon will bat leadoff and play third base, while INF Trea Turner will bat second and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: Rendon ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is just 3-for-22 over the past week and should not be used in FantasyScore this afternoon. Turner ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at this point.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon out of Game 2

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:41:10 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon is out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3, with 2B Wilmer Difo hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Difo ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is 1-for-10 (.100) to begin his career and isn't a good option on FantasyScore against Matt Harvey.

Nationals | Nats regulars being rested

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 11:11:08 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar, SS Ian Desmond and OF Jayson Werth are all out of the lineup Monday, Sept. 28. 2B Anthony Rendon moves to third base and is hitting third, SS Trea Turner is starting at the 6 and hitting second and OF Matt den Dekker is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan. 2B Dan Uggla draws a start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has some appeal as a deep sleeper because of his upside on FantasyScore, but Rendon ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is realistically the only player here worth putting into your FantasyScore lineup. Despite no homers against lefties this year, he's batting .328 (19-for-58) against them.

Nationals | Anthony Rendon sitting against Marlins

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 08:18:56 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Anthony Rendon is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. SS Trea Turner is starting at second base and batting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid the red-hot Rendon ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) in all formats Sunday. He has 23 runs and a .318/.387/.402 slash line over his past 25 games and is set to cap the season off with a bang. Turner ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has just 13 plate appearances at the highest level, and is nothing more than a low-priced dice roll at FantasyScore Sunday.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar receiving a breather

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 12:52:05 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at second base and is batting second against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom. 2B Anthony Rendon slides over to third base and is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Even in a favorable lineup spot, Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a low-end FantasyScore second baseman tonight against the tough deGrom. Rendon ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has begun to pick it up lately with the bat and could be a contrarian option worth considering tonight.

Nationals | Yunel Escobar to miss another game

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 09:36:20 -0700

Washington Nationals SS Yunel Escobar (hand) is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Sunday, Aug. 30. 3B Anthony Rendon will start at third base, while 2B Danny Espinosa will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Escobar's ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) return, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Espinosa ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .220 this month and is not a great option on FantasyScore.
