5 days agoGreen Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones has returned to practice after sitting out recent sessions with a hamstring injury. Jones missed six sessions and the preseason opener against the Houston Texans with the injury, but the running back himself said that he "wouldn't even call it an injury; it was just right". Jones is widely expected to be the Packers starting running back, in a much-improved offense, but he will disappoint fantasy owners if he cannot remain healthy. Fantasy owners will need to monitor the situation, with the running back and construct their roster accordingly- if he struggles to prove his health before fantasy drafts then his handcuff Jamaal Williams could be a target in mid to late rounds.--Richard King - RotoBallerSource: Rob Demovsky on Twitter
5 days agoGreen Bay Packers running back Dexter Williams has had some recent struggles in catching the ball in practice. Williams was given the opportunity to lead the team at the position in the opening preseason game against the Houston Texans, given the injuries to Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, and performed well. However, if an injury were to hit either of the players ahead of him then Williams' upside could be capped depending on how he performs catching the ball. While Williams is unlikely to be drafted his season in most fantasy leagues, he is worth monitoring for waiver wire consideration during the season.--Richard King - RotoBallerSource: Rob Demovsky on Twitter
5 days agoGreen Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams should benefit this season from lining up opposite improved talent, in a revamped offense. Adams is clearly the number one option for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but there seems to be an emergence of other options this season. Adams is still a great option for Rodgers in the red zone, as highlighted in practice where Rodgers threaded a pass through tight coverage to him. Rodgers was not given the opportunity to throw in the red zone last season, and if he is able to be trusted again in the new offense, then Adams has great opportunity to finish at the top of the position this season.--Richard King - RotoBallerSource: Wes Hodkiewicz on Twitter
5 days agoGreen Bay Packers wide receiver Jake Kumerow is starting to emerge as an option for the team. Kumerow is looking like he will win the battle to back up the starting trio of Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Kumerow was given limited opportunity in the preseason opener against the Houston Texans but caught both of his targets in that game. Building on that, it seems as though he has started building chemistry with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, catching a back corner pass for a touchdown in practice. Kumerow will only be a consideration for very deep leagues, but in normal redraft leagues his situation is worth monitoring for potential waiver wire pickups.--Richard King - RotoBallerSource: Ryan Wood on Twitter
5 days agoGreen Bay Packers wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown has struggled this season to make an impact for the team. St. Brown had an opportunity this offseason to try and impress and make a push to be the next man up for the Packers but has struggled to get any traction this offseason. In the recent game against the Houston Texans, his impact was limited to special teams. Given that he has been forced out of practice that doesn't look like it will change. Looking at players this far down the depth chart is only likely in extremely deep leagues, but owners would be better suited to picking up Jake Kumerow who has impressed in practice so far.--Richard King - RotoBallerSource: Wes Hodkiewicz on Twitter
5 days agoGreen Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison is connecting with quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the team's new offense. Allison has had glowing reports coming out of camp, in his new role as the team's slot receiver. The Packers offense has plenty of opportunity in its offense for pass catchers, and while there has been debate over who is the second option behind Davante Adams, both Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are going to be on the field. Allison's slot role should enable him to get more receptions, and so is a great mid-round target for fantasy owners this season.--Richard King - RotoBallerSource: Wes Hodkiewicz
5 days agoGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may not have suited up against the Houston Texans in the preseason opener, but he is hitting his stride in training. In the Packers recent training session, he threw three straight touchdowns in red zone practice. Rodgers found Davante Adams, Jake Kumerow and Jimmy Graham in the drill, while also completing two long passes to Geronimo Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Rodgers seems like he is becoming used to the offense- at least in practice, that should give him the opportunity to return to the top of the quarterback position in fantasy this season.--Richard King - RotoBallerSource: Ryan Wood on Twitter
5 days agoArizona Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley picked up his fourth save of the year on Monday, striking out one over a perfect inning of relief. It was Bradley's second save since the Diamondbacks designated Greg Holland for assignment, and his fourth in his last five outings. For now, Bradley appears to be the closer in Arizona and he should be added in all leagues 12 teams or deeper.--Michael Grennell - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoArizona Diamondbacks shortstop Nick Ahmed homered against the Rockies on Monday, finishing 2-for-4 with four RBI and a double. Ahmed has started to heat up over his last 10 games, as he is now hitting .313 with three home runs and nine RBI in that span. As long as he continues to hit like this, he appears to be a solid backup at middle infield, and a decent low-cost option in daily leagues.--Michael Grennell - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoArizona Diamondbacks catcher Carson Kelly went 1-for-2 with his 17th home run of the season on Monday against the Colorado Rockies. It was Kelly's fifth home run in his last 10 games, as he is now hitting .323 with seven runs and seven RBI in that span. Kelly has definitely been heating up as of late, and could be a good option in daily leagues while he is swinging the hot bat.--Michael Grennell - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoCleveland Browns defensive end Chad Thomas (neck) suffered a neck injury during practice on Monday and he was carted off with what appeared to be a severe and scary ailment. However, he was simply diagnosed with a sprained neck and is considered day to day, and he might even travel to Indiana this week for joint practices with the Indianapolis Colts. Thomas is battling for playing time behind Myles Garrett and Olivier Vernon on the ends. On the defensive side of the ball, DE Jarrell Owens (groin), DT Brian Price (concussion) and CB Tavierre Thomas (hamstring) were absent from practice. The Browns DST has the potential to be a solid No. 1 fantasy unit if everyone can stay healthy.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Cleveland Plain Dealer - Mary Kay Cabot with Josh Gunter and John Kuntz
5 days agoCleveland Browns tight end Rico Gathers made a 10-yard reception during goal-line drills on a pass play from backup quarterback Drew Stanton at practice on Monday. "I wanted to see what the new guy could do," head coach Freddie Kitchens said. Gathers, recently added after being jettisoned by the Dallas Cowboys, was taking advantage of the absence of both TEs David Njoku (knee) and Seth DeValve (concussion). With a rather full tight ends room, Gathers has rather limited value from a fantasy perspective, but should one of the top two tight ends on the depth chart suffer a long-term injury, Gathers could factor in once he gets acclimated on the north shore.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Cleveland Plain Dealer - Mary Kay Cabot with Josh Gunter and John Kuntz
5 days agoCleveland Browns wide receiver Antonio Callaway (ankle) missed practice Monday due to an ankle injury, while wideout Damion Ratley (hamstring) was on the shelf due to a hamstring ailment. The severity of the injuries isn't exactly known. While Ratley isn't someone to rely upon in most fantasy formats, Callaway can be an intriguing fantasy option when healthy. Unfortunately for him, the team added Odell Beckham Jr. to the wide receivers room during the offseason, and Callaway is also suspended for the first four games. He is worth a late-round pick as a WR5 or 6 if you want a little depth and some upside in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Cleveland Plain Dealer - Mary Kay Cabot with Josh Gunter and John Kuntz
5 days agoCleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (undisclosed) was held out of team drills again on Monday due to an undisclosed reason. It's likely it was simply head coach Freddie Kitchens giving the veteran some rest ahead of joint mid-week practices with the Indianapolis Colts. It wouldn't be a surprise to see No. 13 rested for the season preseason game against the Colts, too, with ODB suiting up for the all-important third preseason game instead. Either way, he remains a top-notch fantasy option heading into his first season wearing the orange and brown.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Cleveland Plain Dealer - Mary Kay Cabot with Josh Gunter and John Kuntz
5 days agoCleveland Browns tight ends David Njoku (knee) and Seth DeValve (concussion) were unable to practice on Day 14 of training camp on Monday. The severity of Njoku's knee ailment is not exactly clear, but he could simply be resting as a precaution. The team didn't get into specifics. He should be good to go once the games start counting for real, and he has plenty of time to get himself to 100 percent with three more exhibition games remaining. Njoku remains a solid low-end TE1 across the board in most fantasy formats. DeValve is more of a blocking tight end and warrants no fantasy consideration when healthy.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Cleveland Plain Dealer - Mary Kay Cabot with Josh Gunter and John Kuntz
5 days agoCleveland Indians outfielder/designated hitter Franmil Reyes hit his first home run as a member of the Cleveland lineup, going 2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored. It's been a rough start to Reyes' Indians career, but perhaps this game will be the kick start he needs. He's sporting a .150/.163/.275 slash line.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoCleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (undisclosed) was able to return to full practice participation on Monday. Landry has been sidelined due to an undisclosed injury, and it's uncertain if he'll be ready for the second preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts. He'll more than likely be ready for the all-important third preseason game, which is generally when veterans do the most work. With fellow LSU alum and friend Odell Beckham Jr. on the roster, Landry is likely to go back to being used in short and intermediate routes, rolling up big catch totals rather than being used as a downfield threat. That's music to the ears of fantasy owners in PPR leagues, who are hopeful he'll be back in that triple-digit catch and target neighborhood again.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Cleveland Plain Dealer - Mary Kay Cabot with Josh Gunter and John Kuntz
5 days agoIndianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck (calf) is expected to return to practice sooner rather than later. However, head coach Frank Reich stated on Monday that he will not be participating in the two joint practices the team will be having with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday and Wednesday. He will continue to work behind closed doors with coach Tom House. It will be at least another few days until we see Luck on the practice field.--Gage Bridgford - RotoBallerSource: Kevin Hickey
5 days agoCleveland Indians first baseman Carlos Santana had a strong game on Monday, going 3-for-4 with a home run and two singles. He ended up scoring three runs and driving in one. He also drew a walk for good measure, raising his slash line to .286/.408/.531. The home run was his 26th of the season, as Santana continues to be the most consistent member of the Cleveland offense.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoCleveland Indians closer Brad Hand blew a save on Monday but earned the win anyway when the team walked off in the bottom of the ninth. Hand ended up pitching one inning, allowing a run on a hit and two walks. It was his fourth blown save of the season and his sixth win. Hand may be hitting a little rough spot, as he's blown two saves in his last two opportunities. There's nothing to worry about here though, Hand is one of the better closers in the American League.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoIndianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell (hamstring) was expected to be making his return to the practice field soon, but, after suffering a setback on Monday, it could be a while longer before we see the second-round pick. Campbell is expected to fight for the WR3 spot on this offense, but that battle is going to be more and more uphill as he continues to miss more time. The training staff is likely being cautious to reduce the risk of worsening the injury, but it's worth monitoring this injury as soft-tissue issues can tend to linger.--Gage Bridgford - RotoBallerSource: Kevin Hickey
5 days agoCleveland Indians starting pitcher Zach Plesac was okay on Monday, allowing three runs on seven hits in five innings of work. He walked two and struck out two as well. Plesac wasn't quite as on top of his game as he's been in recent starts, but he did his best to keep his team in the game. He threw 46 strikes and 32 balls, and he's shown that when he's "off" he tends to lose his control but still keeps away from big innings.--David A Marcillo - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoIndianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton has a great connection with quarterback Andrew Luck. Despite Luck's absence, he's having the best training camp of his career. He's caught 29 out of his 30 targets during the tracked drills thus far in camp. His big-play ability makes him one of the best wide receivers in fantasy when he's clicking with his quarterback, and he's in the prime of his career. He could enter WR1 territory this season with a strong year.--Gage Bridgford - RotoBallerSource: Kevin Hickey
5 days agoToronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette went 4-for-6 with two doubles, three runs scored and a stolen base in Monday's 19-4 win over the Rangers. Bichette's incredible run to begin his Major League career continues as he is now batting .394 through 15 games. The 21-year-old is making a case for himself as an early round pick in fantasy drafts for next season with this record breaking start, and should be started in all fantasy formats for the remainder of the 2019 season.--Denis Vondrus - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoPhiladelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta (elbow) said he's unsure if he is healthy enough to continue pitching through a bone spur in his elbow. After Sunday's loss to the Giants Arrieta said he doesn't want to make a decision and will address his elbow injury Tuesday after the off day. Arrieta was off to a nice start this season but has clearly been impacted by trying to pitch through the elbow injury. He hasn't posted a quality start since June 19 and has a 5.73 ERA in nine starts since. At this point, Arrieta is doing more harm than good in fantasy lineups and shouldn't be started unless he goes on the injured list and gets healthy.--Mike Schwarzenbach - RotoBallerSource: Meghan Montemurro
5 days agoNew York Yankees infielder Gleyber Torres smacked three home runs in Monday's doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles, continuing to punish their A.L. East rivals. The 22-year-old, who's been dealing with a core injury lately, started both games on Monday, smashing three home runs. He now has 13 home runs against the Orioles this year, one shy of the all-time record by one player against one time in a season. Torres now has 26 home runs for the season, surpassing his total from his rookie season last year.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: NY Post
5 days agoNew York Yankees infielder Giovanny Urshela drilled a 461-foot bomb in Monday afternoon's first game of a doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium. The 27-year-old racked up three more hits, including an RBI double that preceded the aforementioned home run. Urshela's impact on the 2019 season continues to be impeccable as he refuses to go cold as the Yankees continue to crush opposition. Entering the nightcap of the doubleheader, he was batting .328 with 18 home runs and 63 RBI.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Newsday
5 days agoNew York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius led the offensive unit Monday afternoon in the first game against the Baltimore Orioles. The Dutch native drove in half of his club's runs in the game, smashing a three-run bomb in the first inning. The 29-year-old later hit a sacrifice fly to increase the lead to five. This was a much-needed home run for Gregorius, who's struggled this month. For August, he's batting just .219, a low for any month thus far this season.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Newsday
5 days agoThe New York Yankees are hosting the Baltimore Orioles for four more games at Yankee Stadium and the first game Monday afternoon went much like the previous ones. Starter James Paxton went six innings, surrendering three runs on five hits and a pair of walks. In what has continued to be a weakness for the Canadian native, he surrendered a run in the first inning yet again. Paxton allowed two home runs, but his offense was back to usual against their familiar punching bag in Baltimore, picking up a, 8-5 victory. The 30-year-old, now having won three straight, saw his record improve to 8-6 on the year while his ERA stands at 4.40.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Newsday
5 days agoTampa Bay Rays starter Blake Snell said he felt good after playing catch for the first time since undergoing surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow at the end of July. He still hopes to pitch again this year which will likely be in early or mid-September. The results haven't been as stunning for the reigning Cy Young winner this season, but he's still managed to strike out batters at an incredible rate. His 32.9% K-rate ranks fifth-best in the league, but his 4.28 ERA is nowhere near the 1.89 mark he put up last season. Owners should hold on to Snell for the duration as he could still provide value in the final weeks of the season.--Riley Mrack - RotoBallerSource: Marc Topkin - Twitter
