Washington Nationals DFS SPIN

Trea Turner hit his second homer in as many games in the Nationals' loss to the Braves on Wednesday. It was a two-run shot in the bottom of the first inning off Braves left-hander Max Fried. Turner also doubled in the bottom of the second, finishing the day 2-for-4 with two RBI and one run scored. A friendly reminder here that the Nats' star shortstop out-slugged both Corey Seager and Fernando Tatis Jr. last year.

Los Angeles Dodgers DFS SPIN

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Cody Bellinger (calf) will not play in Friday's home opener against the Nationals and that a trip to the injured list is still possible. Bellinger took a spike to his left ankle/calf on Tuesday night on a play at first base. He has no fractures or structural damage but is apparently still working through some residual soreness. Roberts confirmed the Dodgers will not make a decision regarding the injured list until Friday. If you are in a weekly fantasy league with Friday lineup swaps, this may come down to the wire.
