5 days agoNew York Mets outfielder J.D. Davis (calf) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Indians. Davis has been bothered by a calf issue the last few days. He missed multiple games because of it, but is back in the lineup here. Davis will bat sixth and play left field versus righty Shane Bieber. Davis doesn't seem to get out, so it's hard to ignore him in fantasy formats.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: New York Mets

5 days agoDetroit Tigers second baseman Niko Goodrum (groin) remains out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Houston Astros. This marks the third game in a row that Goodrum has missed due to a sore groin. Gordon Beckham will draw the start at second base and bat ninth versus righty Aaron Sanchez. Beckham is not a reliable fantasy option.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Chris McCosky

5 days agoSeattle Mariners starting pitcher Yusei Kikuchi will be skipped during his next turn in the rotation. The team is rebuilding and they want to limit Kikuchi's innings this season. He threw a shutout last outing against the Jays, so it has nothing to do with performance. Jutus Sheffield is expected to start on Friday and Felix Hernandez (shoulder) is scheduled to throw on Saturday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Shannon Drayer
5 days agoSeattle Mariners starting pitcher Justus Sheffield is expected to be called up by the major league team on Friday. Sheffield has a 4.13 ERA with 133 strikeouts in 133 innings in the minors this season. The Mariners are out of contention, so they may give Sheffield a long look in the rotation. He's worth a look in deep leagues and AL-only formats. He has potential to be a reliable starter in the rotation.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Shannon Drayer
5 days agoOakland Athletics starting pitcher Marco Estrada (back) has been released by the organization on Tuesday. Estrada has been sidelined since April due to a back issue that needed surgery. He wasn't pitching well during his rehab outings, so the Athletics decided to let him go. He might land on another team, but won't have any fantasy value.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Martin Gallegos
5 days agoAtlanta Braves outfielder Austin Riley (knee) is hopeful that he will be able to begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend. Riley has been sidelined since August 8 with a partially torn LCL in his right knee. He was able to hit on the field on Tuesday, so that's a good sign moving forward. Riley might be able to get back on the major league roster by the end of next week, but we'll see what happens.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Mark Bowman

5 days agoAtlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson (foot) is expected to begin a rehab assignment in the next few days. Swanson has been running the bases and taking fielding practice without any issues the last few days. He's been sidelined since July 27 due to a foot contusion, but could return to the Braves' lineup by the end of August. Adeiny Hechavarria will continue to play shortstop for the Braves until Swanson is ready to play.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Mark Bowman

5 days agoMinnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (illness) is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox. He was removed from Sunday's game due to an illness and didn't play on Monday. Kepler will bat leadoff and play center field versus righty Reynaldo Lopez. Kepler has been in a slump with the bat over the last two weeks, but has a great chance to break out of that against Lopez on Tuesday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

5 days agoDetroit Tigers outfielder Travis Demeritte (groin) is out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Houston Astros. Demeritte is dealing with a sore groin that he suffered during Monday's game. The team doesn't believe it's too serious, so Demeritte is listed as day-to-day. Victor Reyes will bat leadoff and play right field versus righty Aaron Sanchez. Reyes has been on fire with the bat, so he could be a sneaky option for DFS contests.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Chris McCosky

5 days agoMiami Marlins starting pitcher Pablo Lopez (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehab start on Wednesday with Triple-A New Orleans. Lopez has been sidelined since mid-June due to a shoulder strain. He's already made four rehab appearances, so he should be ready to return soon. However, he doesn't offer great upside in fantasy leagues, so he could be a deeper league option or NL-only.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Joe Frisaro
5 days agoSan Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman had three carries for 21 yards rushing in Monday night's preseason game against the Broncos. As the primary back in Atlanta in 2018 because of Devonta Freeman's injury, Coleman ran a career-high 167 times for 800 yards (4.8 yards per tote) and four touchdowns. He added 32 receptions for 276 yards and another five scores. He lacks the prototypical size (6-foot-1, 210 pounds) to be an in-between-the-tackles lead back, and he'll share snaps with Matt Breida and Jerick McKinnon, which will limit his fantasy ceiling. Still, Coleman has experience with head coach Kyle Shanahan and should be San Fran's most attractive fantasy running back in PPR leagues, just don't reach for him like many did for McKinnon in 2018.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

5 days agoChicago Cubs relief pitcher Steve Cishek (hip) has been activated from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday. He missed 10 days of action due to left hip inflammation, but is ready to pitch out of the bullpen on Tuesday. However, Craig Kimbrel is back as well, so Cishek won't see too many ninth inning save spots right now. David Bote has been optioned to Triple-A to make room for Cishek on the active roster.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: CBS Sports
5 days agoLos Angeles Dodgers infielder/outfielder Kike Hernandez (hand) has been activated from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday. Hernandez missed almost a month of action due to a left hand sprain. He'll draw the start at second base and bat seventh versus righty Sean Reid-Foley on Tuesday. Hernandez was hitting well before the injury, so he could be a sneaky DFS option for this one.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

5 days agoLos Angeles Dodgers infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor (forearm) has been activated from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday. Taylor missed the last five weeks due to a fracture in his left forearm. Taylor will bat fifth and play left field versus righty Sean Reid-Foley on Tuesday. Taylor has been fairly reliable with the bat, so he could be someone worth looking at as a cheap DFS option.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

5 days agoWashington Nationals starting pitcher Joe Ross (leg) is scheduled to make his next start versus the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. He took a comebacker off his right leg during his start on Monday. He was removed from the contest, but it appears to be a day-to-day type of issue. Ross is expected to stay in the rotation once Max Scherzer (back) returns from the injured list. Erick Fedde is most likely going to shift from the rotation to the bullpen.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Mark Zuckerman
5 days agoLos Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp (knee) has made remarkable progress since tearing his ACL last November. He looks to be on track for Week 1 against the Panthers and wasn't placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open training camp. Head coach Sean McVay stated at the end of July that Kupp looks better than before his injury. "It sounds crazy but he looks more explosive than he was before, actually," McVay said. The Rams are avoiding using Kupp in preseason action, as they do with most of their starters, but he should be ready for Week 1 and makes for a solid WR2 with some slight injury risk.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Rams Wire - Cameron DaSilva

5 days agoBuffalo Bills wide receiver Robert Foster (foot) was injured during Monday's practice. The details of the injury haven't been released at this point, but Foster was seen walking off the practice field with his left foot wrapped in ice. The team's next preseason game is Friday against the Lions and Foster should be considered questionable at this point. Foster already has a depth chart hurdle to overcome with John Brown, Cole Beasley and Zay Jones currently ahead of him in the wide receiver pecking order, so an injury that keeps him out of preseason action could just bury him further.--Andrew Ericksen - RotoBallerSource: CBS Sports

5 days agoDenver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock (hand) is likely done for the rest of the preseason after an MRI on his right hand showed a bad sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The second-round selection suffered the injury in the preseason game Monday night against the 49ers while being sacked. The good news is that his injury won't require surgery, but he might not be ready for the regular season. In three preseason games, the rookie had gone 31-for-51 (60.8 percent) for 254 yards, a touchdown and interception. Lock could start games this year if Joe Flacco struggles, but he's mainly a dynasty league target in fantasy leagues. Kevin Hogan and Brett Rypien will back up Flacco with Lock injured.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL Network - Ian Rapoport
5 days agoNew York Mets left-hander Steven Matz will look to continue his hot stretch on the mound Tuesday when he takes on the Cleveland Indians at Citi Field. Matz has posted a 3.06 ERA in his last six starts and has looked like a totally different pitcher since his demotion to the bullpen last month. Unfortunately, this is a tough matchup for the southpaw. The Indians have been swinging hot bats of late, but they are an American League team that will lose the designated hitter on Tuesday. As a result, Matz is a streaming option.--Adam Young - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoDallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (heel) is unlikely to play in the remainder of the preseason, but he's hopeful he can practice with the team by the end of the week. He's been out of practice since Aug. 6, and the Cowboys won't risk playing him in a preseason game. Cooper is dealing with "a form of plantar fasciitis" but has improved in recent weeks. He doesn't seem to worried about playing with the injury, but the hope is that it's resolved by the time Week 1 against the Giants comes around. "I'm not worried about it at all, because I know if it does linger, it doesn't matter," Cooper said. "I had 1,000 yards when I played on plantar fasciitis before." The injury is more worrisome to those considering drafting Cooper as a high-end WR2, especially after he excelled in his nine games with Dallas last year after being traded from Oakland. He's become much more of a risk in the early rounds now.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Dallas - Todd Archer

5 days agoWashington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg should be one of the top options at pitcher Tuesday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates have struggled mightily at the plate of late and will face Strasburg, who is 15-5 with a 3.82 ERA on the season. Pittsburgh is one of the toughest teams to strike out, however, so Strasburg owners in need of strikeouts in category leagues should temper their expectations a bit. For those in points leagues, Strasburg has a high ceiling on Tuesday and should be locked and loaded in your lineups.--Adam Young - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
5 days agoArizona Diamondbacks left-hander Alex Young will look to bounce back on Tuesday in a start against the Colorado Rockies. Young is coming off his worst start of the season when he allowed five runs against the San Francisco Giants. The southpaw is winless in his last two starts, but he draws a favorable matchup Tuesday. The Rockies are a pitiful offensive team on the road and Young should get solid run support from the D-backs, who square off against hittable lefty Kyle Freeland. As a result, Young is worth a look as a streamer Tuesday.--Adam Young - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

5 days agoThe Dallas Cowboys reached a five-year deal worth $64 million with linebacker Jaylon Smith on Tuesday, according to sources. The extension includes $35.5 million guaranteed. Smith was set to become a free agent after this year. He was slated to be a top-five pick in 2016 but fell to the second round after he tore two ligaments and suffered nerve damage in his knee. Smith didn't play in his rookie year, but he's becoming a cornerstone for their defense and hasn't missed a game in his two seasons while earning 249 total tackles. He finished second on the team in tackles (150) with four sacks, five tackles for loss, 13 quarterback pressures, four pass breakups, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 2018.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Dallas - Todd Archer
5 days agoSan Diego Padres starting pitcher Garrett Richards (elbow, shoulder) will throw at least one more bullpen session but could resume a rehab assignment after that, according to manager Andy Green. Richards has also been recovering from Tommy John surgery, but the Padres are optimistic that he will return this year. Left-hander Adrian Morejon (shoulder), the team's No. 6 prospect, is rehabbing a left shoulder impingement and could also return before season's end. Richards and Morejon could give the Friars even more pitching depth, which they need, in time for the last month of the season, but it won't make much of an impact for fantasy owners.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - AJ Cassavell
5 days agoSan Diego Padres catcher Austin Hedges went 4-for-4 on Sunday with a go-ahead home run against the Phillies but was back on the bench on Monday in favor of youngster Francisco Mejia. Despite his struggles with the bat, Hedges leads the majors in defensive runs saved at the position, even though he's been seeing 42 percent of the catcher starts since Mejia came up two months ago. Hedges has actually hit better with sporadic playing time and it's unlikely he'll play regularly with Mejia hitting .325/.375/.516 since coming up on June 17. In the long term, it's highly unlikely that Mejia will be moved to the outfield. Hedges has heated up with the stick, but he's unlikely to see more starts through the rest of the season as long as Mejia stays hot.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - AJ Cassavell

5 days agoBaltimore Orioles outfielder Dwight Smith (calf) started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Norfolk on Monday and served as the designated hitter in his first game action since July 30. Smith was hitting just .238 with a .708 OPS in 84 games before his injury and has played through several leg injuries all year. The rebuilding O's could give him regular playing time in the outfield in the last month of the season, but Smith would only be intriguing to close the year in AL-only leagues.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Joe Trezza

5 days agoTampa Bay Rays outfielder Avisail Garcia (oblique) took batting practice in the cage on Monday for the first time since going on the injured list last Wednesday. He will take batting practice on the field on Tuesday and then play in one rehab game at the end of the week. Oblique injuries often keep players out for longer, but Garcia's injury doesn't appear to be that serious. The Rays should have him back relatively soon, barring a setback. The 28-year-old has been useful in most formats for a good Rays team with his .278/.335/.459 slash line, 17 home runs, 49 runs, 57 RBI and nine steals in 399 at-bats.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Juan Toribio

5 days agoTampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow (forearm), who has been out with a right forearm strain since May 10, threw his first bullpen session on Monday since he suffered a setback in June. The right-hander threw 15 fastballs and is set to throw another bullpen on Wednesday and Friday before moving to live batting practice next week. He could begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Charlotte around Aug. 30. However, he won't be built up as a starter and would be used as a bullpen option if everything goes well the next few weeks. Glasnow led the American League with a 1.86 ERA before his injury, but he won't have much fantasy appeal the rest of the year if he's working in relief or as an opener.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Juan Toribio
5 days agoDenver Broncos tight end Noah Fant hauled in two receptions against the 49ers on Monday, the notable catch being a dump pass from quarterback Joe Flacco that the rookie tight end turned into an 11-yard run with a nice shake of the 49ers linebacker. So far, Fant's athleticism has looked to be a problem for linebackers and defensive backs trying to guard him. Fant continues to lead a depleted tight end corps for Denver but has yet to be penciled in as a top tight end in regards to fantasy value.--Matthew McGough - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
