Francisco Lindor Ends Epic Slide In Fashion, Not Much Past Success Versus Saturday's Starter

Shortstop Francisco Lindor finally broke his epic September slump that saw him go nine games without a hit Friday in the Indians' 7-2 win over the Royals. Coming into the game on a 0-for-24 kick, he finished the game 2-for-2 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI. This pushes up his meager... Read More

Connor Barth Not Proving Much Fantasy Value, Week 4 Not Poised To Be Much Different

Kicker Connor Barth is showing just why the Bears had no interest in paying veteran Robbie Gould any amount of money to be their kicker: they barely need one at all. After the first three games of the season, Barth is 1-for-2 in field goal attempts and 6-for-6 in extra point kicks, good for a... Read More

Eddie Royal Hoping To Be A Bigger Part Of Week 4's Offense, Deep League Option Only This Week

Wide receiver Eddie Royal didn't see many targets in Week 3, receiving only three despite Hoyer throwing the ball 49 times. After receiving six in each of the first two games--mostly thrown by injured quarterback Jay Cutler--it is a bit worrisome to see that number cut in half on such a pass-happy team. With a...

Expect Big Things Out Of Zach Miller Sunday, Lions' Giving Up Most Fantasy Points To TEs

After not showing up the first two weeks of the fantasy season, tight end Zach Miller is back in a big way. He took full advantage of the league's now third-best team for a tight end to face in Week 3, and now he's looking likely to repeat against the first-best in the Lions. With... Read More

Kevin White Improving With Each Week, Sunday Could Be The Game He Breaks Out

Young wide receiver Kevin White is experiencing growing pains as he works on honing his craft, but Week 4 may be the game he finally puts it all together (enough so, at least). After receiving 14 targets last week against the Cowboys, he is set to see the same volume Sunday with it now known... Read More

Jordan Howard Draws Favorable Matchup For Lead Back Debut, Must-Add In All Leagues

With starting running back Jeremy Langford on the shelf for the foreseeable future and fellow backup Ka'Deem Carey also injured, rookie back Jordan Howard is looking to turn a deep, deep draft day sleeper pick into that sweet cash money. He draws a favorable matchup against the Lions on Sunday, a team that is coming... Read More

Alshon Jeffery Limited In Practice With Two Injuries, Monitor Going Into Sunday's Game

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was not at full strength in the Bears' Week 3 game against the Cowboys according to coordinator Dowell Loggains, something that is looking likely to become a trend heading into Week 4.

Jay Cutler Sits Out Last Two Practices, Brian Hoyer Poises For Second Start

The "Quarterback Shuffle" is one of the worst dances a NFL team can perform, both for fantasy and real life. When that dance involves two lackluster options such as the Bears' Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer, it only grows uglier. With Cutler not practicing Thursday or Friday as he recovers from a right thumb injury,... Read More

Alex Reyes Closes Out 2016 With a Victory, Will Be A Sought After 2017 Commodity

Rookie starting pitcher Alex Reyes closed out his first season in the Majors on a high note Thursday. At home against the Reds, he allowed one run on seven hits and two walks, striking out six. He finished the season with a 4-1 record, 1.57 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 52 strikeouts in 46 innings, completely... Read More

Corey Kluber Has Mild Quad Strain, Ruled Out Of Regular Season

The Indians received some good news Monday--well, as good as injury news can be--when the MRI on starting pitcher Corey Kluber's quad showed only a mild strain. He will be able to return to the team in seven to 10 days, which rules him out for the rest of the regular season. Kluber will end... Read More

Mike Napoli Sits Monday, Owns Wednesday's Starter This Season

First baseman Mike Napoli received the day off Tuesday after going 0-for-7 over his last three games and 7-for-47 (.184 average) over his last 11. While he continues to walk enough to keep his OBP at .319 during this 11-game hit famine, that has helped almost no one. But fret not fantasy players as Napoli... Read More

Free agent running back Joique Bell is free no longer, signing up with the Bears Monday to help fill the gap left in the wake of starter Jeremy Langford's ankle injury.

Running back Jeremy Langford received bad news on the ankle he injured in the Bears' Week 3 loss Sunday. He will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a sprained ankle, giving way to Jordan Howard.

Jay Cutler No Longer Has Job Security, Toxic Fantasy Asset Until Further Notice

Quarterback Jay Cutler, recovering from a thumb injury, received bad news Monday when John Fox, head coach of the 0-3 Bears, said Cutler's starting spot is no longer a given. "This is a day-to-day, week-to-week, what-have-you-done-for-me-lately league" said Fox a day after backup Brian Hoyer put up the team's best quarterback performance of the season.... Read More

Connor Barth Left Without Much To Do, Inconsisent Offense Limiting Scoring Opportunities

Kicker Connor Barth may have been able to watch the Bears' offense appear a bit more stable than the previous two games in Sunday's loss, but it did little to help him. He finished the day with five points, going 2-for-2 in extra point kicks and making his only field goal attempt of the game.... Read More

Jordan Howard Tops Bears' Backfield Following Jeremy Langford's Injury, Should Be A Top Waiver Target

Running back Jordan Howard led the Bears backfield in touches Sunday as the Bears lost not only the game--31-17 to the Cowboys--but also fellow running back Jeremy Langford. He turned nine touches into 45 yards, while also catching 4-of-6 targets for 47 yards. The previous games' starter Jeremy Langford only carried the ball three times... Read More

Alshon Jeffery Pedestrian In Sunday's Loss, Lack Of Jay Cutler Hurts Him and Eddie Royal

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was held to a pedestrian amount of fantasy points Sunday as fill-in quarterback Brian Hoyer focused on other receivers all day.

Brian Hoyer Puts Up Solid Performance In Sunday's Loss, Not A Lock To Start Week 4

Quarterback Brian Hoyer had the best performance of a Bears quarterback this season in the team's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday. He completed 30-of-49 passes for 317 yards, two touchdowns and--most importantly of all--no interceptions or sacks. But that doesn't mean he was overly spectacular either, as he focused on check downs and screen... Read More

Carlos Martinez Able To Limit Damage In Sunday's Loss, Should Be Able To Do The Same Friday

Starting pitcher Carlos Martinez somehow only allowed two runs to score during Sunday's start against the Cubs where he was anything but effective.

Cody Anderson Proves Indians Have Too Much Patience, Fantasy Players Should Have None

No matter how many times he implodes into a thousand little pieces, the Indians still keep trying to use pitcher Cody Anderson as a starter. True, he wasn't a true starter Saturday in a game where the team only used relievers, but he began the game and was awful, as usual. He worked only two... Read More

Jason Kipnis Warming Up After Cold September, Ready To Produce Over The Final Days Of 2016
