Markakis doesn't hit many home runs these days, but he does have three this month and is also batting .400 over his last nine contests. However, the lack of counting stats for Markakis make him a borderline-at-best mixed league option.

Nick Markakis clubbed a go-ahead three-run homer in Friday’s 5-3 victory over the Marlins.

The Braves were down 3-1 going into the bottom of the sixth inning, but Brandon Phillips led off with a single against Adam Conley before Tyler Flowers reached on a one-out single. Markakis then followed with a blast to right. It was his first home run against a left-handed pitcher since he took Chris Sale deep last July 8. Markakis is batting .444 (12-for-27) over his last nine games.

Markakis doesn't have much power but manages to accumulate a goodly number of runs and RBI anyway. He has a .279 batting average with five home runs, 40 RBI and 50 runs scored in 102 games.

Nick Markakis went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Not much doing offensively for the Giants in this one, as they finished with just two extra-base hits on the afternoon. For his part, Markakis holds a .301/.376/.392 triple-slash with one homer, 24 RBI and 26 runs scored on the season. The veteran outfielder is working on a six-game hitting streak and has done a nice job hitting for average, but his almost complete lack of power caps his fantasy upside.
