T.J. Hockenson Disappoints Again In Week 7

Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson caught three of five targets for 32 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. This was another disappointing performance for Hockenson and he really hasn't lived up to the standard he set in week 1. With Matt Stafford attempting 45 passes, you would have liked to have seen Hockenson... Read More

Kenny Golladay Held To One Catch In Week 7

Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay caught just one of two targets for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. The game plan for the Vikings was clearly to lock Golladay down and they succeeded, but it is still a very disappointing game. Golladay has had two bust weeks this season while maintaining a...

Marvin Jones Catches Four Touchdowns In Week 7

Detroit Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones had a monster game in week 7, catching 10 of 13 targets for 93 yards and four touchdowns against the Vikings. As great as this game was for Jones, expectations should be tempered. The Vikings plan was clearly to lock Kenny Golladay down and they succeeded, holding him to... Read More

Keston Hiura Slugs Two Homers Wednesday

Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Keston Hiura went 3-for-4 with two homers, a double, three RBI and three runs in the Brewers win over the Pirates on Wednesday. Hiura had been one of the hottest hitters in baseball before a short nine-game mini slump, however he seems to have broken out of it with a huge... Read More

Trent Grisham Leads Off Again

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Trent Grisham went 1-for-5 with a double out of the lead off spot for the Brewers win over the Pirates on Wednesday. Grisham is batting .300 since his recent call up and has been batting in the lead off spot more often than not. With Lorenzo Cain struggling, it's possible that Grisham... Read More

Adrian Houser Raises ERA On Sunday

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Adrian Houser gave up four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five in five innings during Sunday's loss to the Cubs. Houser offers very little upside with an ERA of 3.99 and a WHIP of 1.35. You could make the argument that playing for an elite offense... Read More

Christian Yelich Hits Homer #37

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 with a homer in Sunday's loss to the Cubs. Yelich now leads the majors in home runs and is not only an MVP candidate, again, but a legitimate triple crown threat. There isn't much more to say other than obviously keep him in your lineup. Yelich has proven... Read More

Trent Grisham Hits First Homer

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Trent Grisham went 3-for-4 with a home run in Sunday's loss to the Cubs. Grisham has started two of the first three games he has been called up for and lead off for the Brewers on Sunday. The Brewers offense has been lackluster as of late, and they could really use another... Read More

Freddy Peralta Continues Bad Streak

Milwaukee Brewers reliever Freddy Peralta gave up two runs on two hits and three walks in just 2/3 of an inning in Saturday's loss to the Cubs. Peralta was having a good stretch in his new bullpen role with an elite strikeout rate and there was even speculation that he may start splitting some save... Read More

Gio Gonzalez Has Short Outing Saturday

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez gave up one run on five hits and a walk through 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's no decision against the Cubs. Gonzalez was skipped his last start due to a tight left shoulder, so it's no surprise he was on a pitch count today. Gonzalez is riding a 3.48... Read More

Ryan Braun Homers Friday

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and two runs in Friday's loss to the Cubs. Braun has been hot over the last two weeks hitting .306 with a .942 OPS. He has mostly been productive this season, the only issue was how often he sits which may not... Read More

Zach Davies Continues Struggles Friday

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Zach Davies gave up four runs on seven hits and two walks through four innings in Friday's loss to the Cubs. This is the third bad start in a row and the fourth loss in a row for Davies, who had some pretty great numbers in the first half of the... Read More

Lorenzo Cain Homers Wednesday

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's win over the Athletics, giving him a total of eight homers on the year. It's been a bad year for Cain, in fact, his worst year since 2013. Cain was never a big source of power, but after batting .308 with... Read More

Josh Hader Picks Up His 24th Save

Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader gave up one hit and strangely didn't strike anyone out in his one inning of work Wednesday night against the Athletics. The Brewers made some smaller moves at the trade deadline, but didn't acquire any high level bullpen arms that would cause concern for Hader's closer role. With an elite... Read More

Jordan Lyles Wins In Milwaukee Debut

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Jordan Lyles gave up one run on three hits and two walks through five innings in a win over the Athletics in his Milwaukee debut. It wasn't quite a quality start, but good enough for the win and potentially good enough for fantasy owners to consider picking Lyles up, but I... Read More

Jakeem Grant Gets Injured In Camp Wednesday

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant grabbed the back of his leg during a drill and was seen walking slowly with the trainers afterwards on Wednesday. So far the severity of the injury is unknown and though Grant probably won't be a highly-owned wide receiver, it is worth noting that as a return specialist, the... Read More

Brewers Send Jesus Aguilar To Rays For Jacob Faria

Former Tampa Bay Rays starter/reliever Jacob Faria is heading to the Milwaukee Brewers in a trade for first baseman Jesus Aguilar. Faria had a strong rookie year as a starter, but then regressed and was eventually moved to the bullpen where his stuff started to shine. For now, it's unlikely that Faria will join the rotation...

Kenyan Drake Limping In Camp

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake was slow to get up after a collision in Tuesday's practice and was seen limping to the sidelines. So far, there hasn't been an official statement on the extent of the injury, but we will continue to update as news comes out. Drake hasn't been the starter so far... Read More

Kalen Ballage Left Field With Trainers

Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage left Monday's training camp with the trainers. There is no official word yet on what exactly happened but so far the speculation is that it is a concussion.

Chase Anderson Mediocre Saturday

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Chase Anderson gave up two runs on four hits and a walk through five innings while striking out four in Saturday's outing against the Cubs. Anderson has not finished six innings since June 9th and doesn't offer a whole lot of upside. Anderson usually doesn't implode, but also rarely has a... Read More

Travis Shaw Goes Hitless In Return

Milwaukee Brewers second baseman and utility man Travis Shaw went 0-for-3 in his return to the lineup Friday night against the Cubs. Shaw was just called up from AAA after a terrible 2019 season and is not off to a great start back. The good news is that he didn't strike out, the bad news... Read More

Josh Hader Records 23rd Save Friday

Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader allowed one hit and struck out two in his 23rd save Friday against the Cubs. Hader has been mostly lights out this season with a 2.17 ERA and 0.70 WHIP and 93 strikeouts in just 49 2/3 innings. Hader remains a high end closer option for all leagues.

Gio Gonzalez Leaves Start With Injury

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez left his start against the Cubs on Friday after 6 1/3 innings with a tight shoulder. It's a shame because Gonzalez was pitching well against the Cubs only allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out nine. Before this start, Gonzalez hadn't completed six innings...

Keston Hiura Steals Another Base Friday

Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Keston Hiura went 1-for-2 with a two walks, a run and a stolen base in Friday's win over the Cubs. Hirua has been on fire over the last two weeks hitting .469 with an 1.417 OPS and three steals. It's safe to say that Hiura is here to stay for the... Read More

Ryan Braun Sitting Friday Night

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun is getting the day off against the Cubs on Friday. Braun has been quietly productive over the last two weeks posting a .297 average with a 1.048 OPS in that stretch with three home runs, two stolen bases, 10 runs and eight RBI. He still sits too often to be... Read More

Travis Shaw Gets The Start At First Base

Milwaukee Brewers utility man Travis Shaw is getting a rare start at first base for Friday's game against the Cubs. Shaw had just been recalled from AAA the night before after a terrible start to the 2019 season. There has been rumors that the Brewers may trade Jesus Aguilar, which would open up more playing...

Ryan Fitzpatrick Impresses In Camp

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was impressive in the second day of training camp. Fitzpatrick threw a 45 yard touchdown to Brice Butler as well as a 35 yard pass deep down the sideline to Devante Parker. It's going to be a competition between Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen, who threw a touchdown himself on Friday,... Read More

Kenyan Drake Not Starting In Camp

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake was not the starter in training camp on Friday. Kalen Ballage was given the start and was taking the first and second down reps with the starters, while Kenyan Drake worked the third downs.

Kalen Ballage Taking Starting Reps Again Friday

Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage was seen practicing with the starters again on Friday. Though training camp has just started, the 6'2" 238lb running back looks like he has overtaken Kenyan Drake as the primary running back. It will obviously take more time in camp to figure out the roster, but it's worth noting... Read More

Gio Gonzalez Is A Risky Start For Friday

Milwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez has a tough matchup heading in to Friday's game against the Cubs. Gonzalez only lasted four innings in his first start back from the injured list on the 20th against the Diamondbacks, giving up three runs on five hits and two runs while only striking out one batter. Now,... Read More
