Daniel Murphy collects two hits in win

Daniel Murphy went 2-for-4 with a double on Tuesday as the Nationals defeated the Angels 3-1.

Fantasy Impact

The 32-year-old continues to produce as the best second baseman in the National League. Murphy is now hitting .332 with a .961 OPS here in the middle of August. Additionally, he has posted 20 homers and has 78 RBIs. He's been a great draft pick considering where he was going off boards back in March.

Daniel Murphy (hip) returns to starting lineup Thursday

Daniel Murphy who has missed the last two games with a sore hip will return to the Nationals' starting lineup for their series finale against the Marlins and right-hander Dan Straily.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy is batting .332 against right-handed pitchers this season but is just 1-for-11 against Straily in his career. He should still be re-inserted into fantasy lineups in daily leagues.

Daniel Murphy goes hitless in Sunday's doubleheader

Daniel Murphy went 0-for-5 in Sunday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Murphy can be forgiven for the rare off day, as he's still batting .321 in July with 18 RBIs and 14 runs scored. With a .955 OPS this season, Murphy has turned into one of the best second basemen in fantasy baseball, and should finish with over 100 runs scored and RBIs.

Daniel Murphy swats 17th homer

Fantasy Impact

The homer was Murphy's 17th of the season to go along with his .340 batting average and .976 OPS. He's been a tremendous draft day value for those fantasy players fortunate enough to have him this year.
