Ronald Jones II Unimpressive Yet Again

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie running back Ronald Jones II continued to struggle Thursday against the Jaguars. Jones rushed 10 times for just four yards. This puts his preseason total at 28 rushes for 22 yards and one touchdown. Jones II has done nothing but tank his draft stock in August and it looks like he... Read More

Charles Sims Could Re-Sign in Tampa

Despite his recent exit from the Buccaneers, running back Charles Sims could return to the team in the coming weeks. The former 2014 third-round pick was waived by the Buccaneers Thursday and will be eligible to return three games after the number of games he was paid for. While this scenario may be unlikely, it...

Bryce Harper Out of Lineup Wednesday

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Phillies. He was pulled in the ninth inning of last night's game reportedly due to a cold which may be why he is off today. Harper has been back to form since the break, but that has not translated to many wins. The Nationals... Read More

Justin Miller Records Save Monday

Nationals relief pitcher Justin Miller earned a save Monday in Philadelphia. Miller was called upon after Ryan Madson pitched the eighth and recorded a clean ninth. Madson had just been activated from the disabled list earlier in the day so it shouldn't have been shocking to see him in a lower leverage situation. Going forward,... Read More

Stephen Strasburg Solid on Monday

Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg had a decent outing in his second game back from the disabled list. Strasburg faced the Phillies on Monday. He went six innings, gave up two runs, and struck out five en route to his seventh win. His velocity was notable as he wasn't hitting much higher than 93, which... Read More

Chris Godwin Could Be a Late-Round Steal

Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin scored another touchdown in the preseason. This time it came against the Lions on Friday as he went on to haul in each of his three targets for 27 yards. Godwin has been making his case as a starting wideout for Tampa in these past two games and will be... Read More

Jefry Rodriguez Shuts Down Mets

Nationals starting pitcher had a fantastic start Sunday against the Mets. Rodriguez gave up two hits, four walks, and no runs to the Mets in six innings pitched. While he may be the fifth starter for Washington, no pitcher is too low to shut out the lesser New York team. Washington ended up walloping their... Read More

Adam Eaton Gets Hot Sunday

Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton had a great day at the plate Sunday. Eaton racked up four hits, one home run, two RBI and a steal to top it off. 2018 has been disappointing for Eaton owners.

Kelvin Herrera Carted Off Field Sunday

Nationals relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera (foot) was removed from Sunday's game in the ninth inning due to a left foot injury.

Peyton Barber Set As Bucs Starting Tailback

Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber is the starter going into week one of the season.

DeSean Jackson Having Productive Preseason

Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been racking up some decent numbers this preseason. In the Bucs' most recent outing against the Lions, Jackson hauled in three of his four targets for 36 yards. The game prior he had 73 yards on just two receptions (three targets). With more than 100 yards of production over... Read More

Ronald Jones II Still Struggling on Ground

Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II has the same amount of carries as rushing yards through three preseason games. One yard per carry is bad. He rushed six times for seven yards on Friday and has not done enough to take the starting job away from Peyton Barber. Jones lone highlight from Friday came on... Read More

O.J. Howard Catches Both Targets Friday

Buccaneers tight end O.J. Howard caught both passes targeted to him Friday against the Lions. The second-year TE out of Alabama ended the game with two catches for 22 yards, one of them being for 17 yards on the opening drive of the game.

Why ZeroRB Didn't Work in 2017

For someone drafting 8th in a 10-man league last year, going Zero-RB could have potentially netted them a top-three round haul of Mike Evans, Jordy Nelson, and Demaryius Thomas. On draft day, this is an amazing stack of WR1s. By the end of the year, it's weekly middling to poor performances that the owners' highest draft... Read More

Gio Gonzalez Rebounds Versus Mets

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez took a loss against the Mets on Friday but looked sharp regardless. The Mets are one of the worst teams in the league against left-handed pitching, so it was a bit of a cakewalk for Gonzalez. Nevertheless, allowing only one run over seven innings is commendable. The Nationals' lefty has... Read More

Juan Soto Slowing Down

Nationals outfielder Juan Soto went hitless Thursday in four at-bats against the Phillies. Soto has found himself in a bit of a slump for his standards as he only has one home run over the past 15 days. The 19-year old phenom is not exactly in a slump, as he is still getting on base... Read More

Charles Sims Placed on IR

Buccaneers running back Charles Sims (knee) is out for the season. Sims was placed on injured reserve Thursday after suffering a knee injury deemed minor after the Bucs' second preseason game. With Sims down, the third-down role will need to be filled by either Jacquizz Rodgers or Peyton Barber. The upper-hand likely goes to Barber... Read More

Tanner Roark's Night Cut Short By Rain

Nationals starting pitcher Tanner Roark had his day end after just three innings of work Tuesday against the Phillies. Roark did not allow a single run. However, the delay was too long to throw him back in. Roark did not walk any batters and only allowed one hit. His season has turned around mightily in... Read More

Donovan Smith Suffers Knee Injury

Buccaneers left tackle Donovan Smith (knee) will miss the next two-to-four weeks with a sprained knee. Smith looked like he had suffered a much more serious injury in practice but was luckily diagnosed with just a sprain. This is good news for Tampa, but bad news for Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Bucs' line will look to... Read More

Cody Bellinger Is Scorching

Dodgers first baseman/outfielder Cody Bellinger is hotter than August (in August). Bellinger went 3-for-6 with two runs and an RBI Sunday against the Mariners. Throughout the month, Bellinger is batting over-.400 while getting on base over half the time. He only has three home runs, but with 15 RBI and five steals, his production is... Read More

Jason Vargas Pitching Less Poorly of Late

Mets starting pitcher Jason Vargas earned his third win of the season Sunday against the Phillies. This marks Vargas's second straight decent start. Luckily, these starts came against two or the six worst teams in the league against lefties, so this little streak may end sooner than a 16-team owner may hope. Vargas is just... Read More

Carlos Santana Blasts 18th Home Run of Season

Phillies' first baseman Carlos Santana hit his 18th home run of the season Sunday against the Mets. This shot drove in two runs in the sixth inning against Jason Vargas and put the only points on the board for Philadelphia. Santana is having his worst season since 2015. Hopefully, with the recent addition of Justin... Read More

Nick Pivetta Struggles Against Mets

Phillies starting pitcher Nick Pivetta had a rough outing against the Mets on Sunday. Pivetta allowed eight hits, one walk, and six earned runs in three and two-thirds innings but managed to strike out five.

Amed Rosario Stays Hot

Mets shortstop Amed Rosario was a driving force in Sunday's win against the Phillies. Rosario went 3-for-5 and drove in three runs, upping his RBI total on the week to eight. This was Rosario's third multi-hit game in four days (due to the doubleheader) and it might be time to transition from calling this a... Read More

Josh Hader Earns 10th Save Sunday

Brewers relief pitcher Josh Hader earned his 10th save of the season Sunday against the Cardinals. Hader struck out two batters in a clean ninth inning that only lasted nine pitches. The 24-year old left-hander has been incredible all season long (on the baseball field) and should continue to see save opportunities going forward. Hader... Read More

Jameis Winston Impressive Saturday

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston put up a fantastic stat-line against Tennessee on Saturday. Winston went 13-for-18 with 226 yards and two touchdowns. However, it should be noted that he did not start this game. This is likely due to the fact that he is suspended for the first three regular season games of this season... Read More

Gio Gonzalez Shelled on Sunday

Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez took a tough loss Sunday against the Marlins. In 4.2 innings, Gonzalez gave up 10 hits and four walks resulting in eight earned runs.
