Fantasy Impact: Harper is sporting a slash line of .259/.420/.500 and is leading the league in walks. He has been doing a lot better this year compared to the last three avoiding first strikes and it shows with his OBP. If pitchers don't get the first strike on Harper, they avoid pitching to him all together having five intentional walks. With four HR in 15 games, Harper has become one of the top batters in the game.

The Washington Nationals pounded out 10 hits in their 7-2 win over the Phillies on Friday. Bryce Harper went 1-for-2 with his third home run of the season. He knocked in three, scored twice and walked twice.

Fantasy Impact: Harper is hitting .250 on the season with a sold OPS of .875. Hitting behind Jayson Werth and in front of Ryan Zimmerman, Harper should see plenty of decent pitches to hit.

Bryce Harper got the Nationals on the scoreboard early on Sunday with his second home run of the year. The shot off Sean O'Sullivan gave the Nationals a 1-0 lead. The Nationals went on to win the game 4-3, avoiding a weekend sweep.

Fantasy Impact: Harper is off to a solid start this season, hitting .261 with two home runs and two RBI. Hitting third in the lineup in front of Ryan ZImmerman, Harper should have his best season yet, assuming he can stay healthy.

The Washington Nationals managed just three hits in their 3-1 loss to the New York Mets on Monday. The only run came on a solo home run by Bryce Harper in the fourth inning. Harper finished the day 2-for-4.

Fantasy Impact: Harper is poised for a breakout season after hitting .273 with 13 home runs and 32 RBI in 100 games last season. His at-bats, home runs and RBI have declined each season since his rookie year of 2012. Harper should bounce back and be one of the top fantasy outfielders in the league this season.

Bryce Harper had been relatively quiet this spring with just 4 RBI and 10 strikeouts in 33 at bats. He had walked 10 times but was hitting only .242. Sunday against the Marlins, Harper doubled, homered and knocked in three runs. He raised his spring average to .278.

Fantasy Impact: Harper appears to be ready for a breakout season. He has been solid with 55 home runs, a .272 batting average and an .816 OPS in 357 games. Hampered by injuries last season which limited him to 100 games, Harper should blossom into one of the top fantasy outfielder in the Major Leagues, if he can stay healthy.

Fantasy Impact: In 12 Spring Training games, Harper has gone 6 for 26 (.231) with one homer and five RBI. If he's out for a few days he should still have time to ramp it up for the April 6 opener.

Bryce Harper walked twice, stole a base, and gunned down a runner trying to stretch a single into a double.

Fantasy Impact: Harper didn't steal much in 2014 due to injuries. If his speed is back, look out.
