Nationals | Matt den Dekker optioned to Syracuse

Sun, 15 May 2016 06:54:01 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Matt den Dekker was optioned to Class AAA Syracuse Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Den Dekker is 6-for-34 this season with a .576 OPS, and with Ben Revere healthy and Michael Taylor serving as the fourth outfielder, den Dekker didn't have a role. Washington also has outfielders Clint Robinson and Chris Heisey on the the roster, so den Dekker should be replaced in all fantasy formats.

Nationals | Two Nationals regulars sitting

Sat, 14 May 2016 15:12:41 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth and SS Danny Espinosa are out of the lineup Saturday, May 14. OF Matt den Dekker is hitting sixth, and SS Stephen Drew is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Drew hit a pinch-hit homer yesterday, but he's hitting just .162. He's a bit of a shot in the dark against Kendry Flores in his major league debut. As for den Dekker, he's hitting .188 and doesn't have much power upside. Pass on him today.

Nationals | Ben Revere activated from DL

Fri, 06 May 2016 08:27:01 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Ben Revere (oblique) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 6. OF Matt den Dekker was optioned to Class AAA Syracuse to make room.

Fantasy Tip: Revere figures to send Michael Taylor back to the bench. Taylor could still play two or three times a week, though, with Jayson Werth aging and requiring off days. Taylor is probably only worth holding onto in NL-only leagues, though. Revere should return to all lineups as he's one of the best steals sources in baseball.

Nationals | Michael Taylor, Ryan Zimmerman out

Sun, 01 May 2016 08:09:44 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor and 1B Ryan Zimmerman are not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Sunday, May 1. OF Matt den Dekker will bat leadoff and play center field, while 1B/OF Clint Robinson starts at first base and bats sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Den Dekker and Robinson are a combined 6-for-46 at the plate this season and are not recommended options this afternoon. Even as far as desperation fliers go in daily fantasy leagues, you can do better.

Nationals | Two Nats take a seat

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:23:57 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and OF Michael Taylor are out of the lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Matt den Dekker is leading off, and 3B Stephen Drew is hitting eighth. C Wilson Ramos remains on the bereavement list with C Pedro Severino hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Drew and den Dekker are below the Mendoza Line and don't have enough upside for a start against Aaron Nola. Severino has four career at-bats, and he's not a great flyer either.

Nationals | Bryce Harper out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:25:38 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Sunday, April 24. OF Matt den Dekker will lead off and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Harper leads the majors with eight homers and 22 RBI but is receiving his first day off this season, so he should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Den Dekker is just 2-for-15 at the plate this year and is not a recommended option for daily games.

Nationals | Michael Taylor, Jayson Werth resting

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:42:27 -0700

Washington Nationals OFs Michael Taylor and Jayson Werth are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. OF Chris Heisey is in left field and hitting leadoff, while OF Matt den Dekker is the center fielder and is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey has some notable pop as an extra. He hit a career-high 18 home runs with the Reds back in 2011, and he could pay off as a dart throw if you're looking to save money in daily leagues. Den Dekker can be ignored.
