    • Phillies' Nick Williams: Day off Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Williams is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals. Williams went 1-for-7 with four strikeouts over his last two games, so manager Pete Mackanin decided it was time for a day off, particularly with the Phillies taking on Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez. Aaron Altherr will move over and cover right field in Williams' absence.

    • Williams went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers. The 24-year-old is now up to 11 homers through 74 big-league games, but he also struck out three times in this one, marking his fifth straight start with multiple strikeouts. Williams will have a tough time maintaining a high average with all those strikeouts, but his spot in the heart of the batting order is conducive to compiling counting stats.

    • Phillies' Nick Williams: Not in Wednesday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Williams is out of the lineup against the Dodgers on Wednesday. Williams will get a breather for the first time this month following 21 straight starts. During that span, the outfielder's slashed .287/.315/.425 with two home runs and 18 RBI. In his place, Aaron Altherr slides over to right while Rhys Hoskins draws the assignment in left.

    • Williams went 4-for-5 with a three-run homer and two runs Friday against the Nationals. Williams blasted his 10th homer of the season to give the Phillies a 3-0 lead in the first inning of the game they'd go on to lose. Since joining the lineup just over two months ago, he's been a major boost to the lineups of fantasy managers, as he's slashing .285/.341/.498.

    • Phillies' Nick Williams: Socks homer in losing cause
      By RotoWire Staff

      Williams went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Wednesday's rain-abbreviated loss to the Mets. He made the most of his limited opportunities, bopping his first homer in 10 games and continuing to drive in runs aplenty; Williams has racked up four extra-base hits and 10 RBI over the course of his current five-game hitting streak. The rookie outfielder's been an underrated down-the-stretch fantasy asset.
