Nationals | Jayson Werth living on base lately

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 09:18:48 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth walked during the game against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, July 27, to increase his on-base streak to 30 games. It is a new career high.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his .248 batting average, Werth is having a serviceable fantasy season with 50 runs, 12 home runs, 44 RBI and a .764 OPS. He's a low-end option in the outfield in shallow leagues, but in deeper setups, Werth is a slam-dunk starter.

Nationals | Jayson Werth in fifth spot

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 13:27:22 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth will hit in the fifth spot Tuesday, July 26, against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Why the Nationals are doing this is a mystery. Werth hasn't exactly done anything wrong. He's had six hits in his last seven games, including two homers. On the other hand, you could argue this places Werth in a better position to mop up at the plate. Either way, Werth belongs in your lineup in all formats.

Nationals | Two Nationals out Thursday

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:31:05 -0700

Washington Nationals OFs Ben Revere and Jayson Werth are out of the lineup Thursday, July 21, with SS Trea Turner leading off and OF Chris Heisey hitting seventh. Also, OF Michael Taylor draws in at center field and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: There was a tweet this morning that Turner has two of the highest three top speeds in running out a triple this season. Those wheels are an underrated part of his game as he stole 25 bags in the minors and has two in the majors. He has upside against left-hander Julio Urias today. Heisey has made a living off of left-handed pitching, and he's a sneaky basement option in DFS. Taylor has an intriguing power-speed comination and is also a decent value pick Thursday.

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 10:03:02 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth is back in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Saturday, June 25, batting second and playing left field. OF Michael Taylor is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Werth is 7-for-17 (.412) with two doubles, a home run and two RBI in his career versus Garza and makes a viable option for daily fantasy lineups this afternoon. In addition, he is batting .343 with two homers and 11 RBI in 67 at-bats this month.

Nationals | Two Nats sit

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 16:17:17 -0700

Washington Nationals 3B Anthony Rendon and OF Jayson Werth are out of the lineup Saturday, June 18, with OF Michael Taylor hitting second and 3B Stephen Drew hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is hitting .333 this month, and he's a good flyer against Colin Rea as he's hitting ahead of Bryce Harper. Drew is 8-for-16 with three homers this month, and he, too, is a low-end flyer with a good matchup.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been playing better lately with six hits and two RBI in his last seven games. He is still hitting only .205 this season and is not a strong fantasy option.

Nationals | Jayson Werth drives in four

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 23:18:39 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Jayson Werth went 3-for-6 with a home run, two runs scored and four RBIs Wednesday, June 8, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Werth is still hitting just .236 on the season, but he has 10 homers and 31 RBIs. He is particularly attractive when facing left-handed pitching, as he is hitting .356 (16-for-45) with three doubles, five homers, 12 RBI and a 1.164 OPS. Remember that for DFS in Sunday's game against Philadelphia Phillies LHP Adam Morgan.

Nationals | Michael Taylor draws into lineup

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 14:26:35 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Michael Taylor is starting in center field and is hitting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos Tuesday, June 7. OF Jayson Werth is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor could see regular playing time this week in Chicago. Unfortunately, his power-speed combination won't play very well hitting ninth for those in daily formats. He's still worth consideration as a deep sleeper in DFS against Latos, though.
