24 mins agoMiami Marlins starting pitcher Jose Urena picked up the win on Wednesday night against the Tigers, allowing seven hits and three runs to go along with five strikeouts in six innings of work. After a rocky 1-6 start to the season, the righty was able to finally get some backing from a Marlins team that has now won their last five straight. Run support will continue to be an issue for the 27-year-old as Miami has been one of the worst offensive producers in the league this season. As a result, Urena should be left on the wire until the Marlins are able to turn things around, which is unlikely to happen anytime soon.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
39 mins agoMiami Marlins third baseman Brian Anderson went 1-for-4 in the win over the Tigers on Wednesday night. The 26-year-old started off slow, striking out twice before drilling a 394-foot shot to center off of a 94 mph sinker from Detroit reliever Victor Alcantara in the top of the eighth inning. Nonetheless, it was a rare semi-efficient outing for the youngster who has hit just .217 in May to go along with only 13 hits and 16 strikeouts in 60 at-bats. He will look to keep it going on Thursday afternoon in the series finale with Detroit with starting pitcher Matthew Boyd on the hill for the Tigers.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 hours agoMilwaukee Brewers second baseman Keston Kiura went 1-for-5 with a homer in Wednesday's win over the Reds. This is Hiura's second major league home run after having 11 in the minors through 37 games. It's still too early to tell what kind of production to expect from Hiura in the majors, but he has a career .316 average and .914 OPS in the minors with already four multi-hit games in the majors, so it's safe to say there is some decent upside.--Steve McCarthy - RotoBallerSource: MLB

2 hours agoMilwaukee Brewers catcher Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-3 with a homer, two RBI, two runs and two walks in Wednesday's win over the Reds. Grandal has been back to his hitting ways recently with at least one hit in eight of his last ten games including three homers with 10 RBI. Grandal looks to be right on schedule to finish as a top catching option in 2019.--Steve McCarthy - RotoBallerSource: MLB

2 hours agoMilwaukee Brewers second baseman Mike Moustakas went 3-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Reds. Moustakas has been playing a lot of third base recently with the call up of Keston Kiura and should gain eligibility soon. Moustakas is a solid option at second base going forward, especially if he is batting as high in the lineup as he has been recently.--Steve McCarthy - RotoBallerSource: MLB

2 hours agoMilwaukee Brewers starting pitcher Zach Davies gave up six runs on six hits and a walk through three innings in Wednesday's win over the Reds. This seems to have been a long time coming for Davies as he has drastically out performed his peripherals so far this season. Heading into the game, Davies ERA was over two full runs lower than his FIP and another run lower than his XFIP, leading us to believe he should have an expected ERA of 4.66. Davies has shown a below average strikeout rate, with a way higher than average strand rate and home run to fly ball percentage, so this blow up shouldn't be surprising. Heading forward, Davies remains a low tier starter for points leagues.--Steve McCarthy - RotoBallerSource: FanGraphs
2 hours agoMiami Marlins outfielder Garrett Cooper went 1-for-3 on Wednesday in the win over the struggling Tigers, hitting a 428-foot home run to center, the first of his career, off of Detroit starter Daniel Norris in the top of the sixth inning. The 28-year-old, who has appeared in only 39 games throughout his MLB career due to injuries, has yet to impress this season, sporting a miserable .167 average to go along with just six hits and 12 strikeouts in 36 at-bats. With the Marlins now having won their fifth straight, they will finish off the series with the Tigers on Thursday afternoon with Matthew Boyd on the bump.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

2 hours agoThe Dallas Cowboys and running back Ezekiel Elliott seem to be on the same page as far as discussions on a long-term contract extension go. However, the Cowboys have made it clear that quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper are at the front of the line for extensions this offseason. Elliott is one of the true workhorse backs in the NFL and at 23 years old will get a handsome raise whenever he gets an extension. He barely missed 1,000 yards in 2017 when he was suspended and has gone well over 1,000 yards rushing in his other two seasons. Elliott has 4,048 yards rushing (4.7 average) with 28 rushing touchdowns in his three NFL seasons. He had a career-high 77 receptions for 567 yards and three more touchdowns in 2018 and is a surefire top-three fantasy selection in 2019 drafts.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NFL Network - Tom Pelissero
2 hours agoCarolina Panthers wide receiver Mose Frazier (arm) broke his left arm during practice on Tuesday, according to a league source. He is scheduled to undergo surgery by team doctor Pat Connor and his recovery is expected to last three to four months. Frazier's status for training camp is to be determined, but he obviously won't be ready for the regular season. The 25-year-old could be a cut candidate before the start of the season if he's not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - David Newton
2 hours agoTennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) is making progress in his recovery from his ankle injury. “I feel like I’m in the 85 percent range,” the Titans tight end said Tuesday. “Today I felt fast getting out of my breaks, and I was catching the ball well. Always a good sign.” It was the first time he practiced on the field since Week 1 of last year when he suffered a season-ending ankle injury. The veteran tight end was a full participant in individual drills but watched most of the team drills. Walker doesn't have a timetable for a return and said he's shed "a few pounds" but is officially listed at 248 pounds. Entering his age-35 season, he will be just two years removed from a five-season stretch in which he had at least 60 catches each season. A bounce-back season could be in the cards with better health, but Walker will be drafted as a risk/reward low-end TE1 this year.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: Nashville Tennessean - Erik Bacharach
3 hours agoBaltimore Orioles third baseman/designated hitter Renato Nunez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk, and a strikeout in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees. Nunez lofted a fifth-inning CC Sabathia breaking ball just over the center-field wall for his ninth long ball of the season. The 25-year-old started off hot for the O's but has been ice cold lately, hitting just .129 with three HR and four RBI in May. He has power potential but is unusable in fantasy until he proves that he can hit for average.--Connelly Doan - RotoBallerSource:

3 hours agoSan Francisco 49ers tight end Garrett Celek (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol and will not be cleared until at least training camp. The backup to George Kittle had just five catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games for the Niners last season. He'll turn 31 next month and won't be fantasy relevant in 2019 unless Kittle goes down with an injury during the season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NBC Sports Bay Area - Matt Maiocco
3 hours agoBaltimore Orioles starting pitcher Dan Straily turned in yet another poor start in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees. Straily lasted four innings, allowing six runs on eight hits (including four home runs) and three walks with two strikeouts. The 30-year-old has not been good for the O's this season and now owns a mammoth 9.09 ERA with 14 HR allowed in 34 2/3 IP. He will face a more favorable matchup in his next start against the Tigers but has no business being owned or used by fantasy players.--Connelly Doan - RotoBallerSource:
3 hours agoThe Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed tight end Jordan Leggett off waivers from the Jets on Tuesday, according to a source. The third-year professional was a fifth-round pick out of Clemson in 2017 and spent his rookie season on Injured Reserve. Leggett made four starts in 15 games last season for Gang Green and had 14 receptions for 114 yards and a touchdown. In Tampa, he'll struggle for consistent playing time behind O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate, so you can avoid Leggett in all fantasy formats.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - Scott Smith
3 hours agoSan Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert (forearm) needed to have another surgery to fix his broken forearm and will be out for another month. It adds injury to insult, as Mostert is behind Matt Breida, Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon and Jeffery Wilson on the team's crowded backfield depth chart. It'll take several injuries ahead of him for Mostert to gain any real playing time in 2019. He received only 34 carries for 261 yards (7.7 average) and one touchdown in nine games for San Fran in 2018.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NBC Sports Bay Area - Matt Maiocco
3 hours agoSan Francisco 49ers running back Matt Breida (pectoral) has a slightly torn pectoral muscle but will not need surgery. He will miss organized team activities but should be ready for the start of training camp this summer. Breida seemingly played injured for most of the 2018 season but managed to run the ball 153 times for 814 yards (5.3 average) and three touchdowns in 14 games. It looks like he'll be ready for the start of the season, but an injury of this nature could hurt him as he attempts to distance himself in a crowded backfield that includes Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, Jeffery Wilson and Raheem Mostert.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: NBC Sports Bay Area - Matt Maiocco
3 hours agoSeattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said there's a chance that defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is ready for Week 1, but they won't know for sure until training camp begins. Ansah has always had plenty of pass-rushing potential, but he was never able to capitalize on it in Detroit due to various injuries. The 29-year-old played in only seven games in 2018 and hasn't played in a full season since 2015. Ansah has reached double-digit sack totals twice in his career, but those in IDP leagues will want to see him prove his health first. Seattle is hoping he can fill in for the loss of Frank Clark, who was traded to Kansas City.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - John Boyle
3 hours agoSeattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that running back Chris Carson (knee) "had a little work done" on his knee, but he should be back in a couple of weeks. Carson has had injury issues before, so this one is worth watching as we get further into the summer. The 24-year-old, a seventh-round pick in 2017, has yet to play a full season in his two years in the NFL and managed just four games in his rookie season. He had 247 carries for 1,151 yards (4.7 average) and nine touchdowns as he ran away with the job in Seattle in 2018. He'll have to keep it up this season to hold off Rashaad Penny, who is entering his second season and should have a larger role.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: - John Boyle
3 hours agoTampa Bay Rays outfielder Tommy Pham hit a solo blast off of Rich Hill on Wednesday. It was his first homer since May 6th and the powerless streak may have fantasy owners panicking. However, there is no need to panic in this case. All of Pham’s Statcast marks are well above average and he’s hitting ,278 with a .391 OBP, so it’s just a matter of time before the home runs come. Counting stats have not been ideal though, with only 19 runs and 20 RBI. There is potential for him to go on a power streak and boost those counting stats with some help in front and behind him in the very solid Rays lineup. He’s a good buy low option.--Zach Alexander - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

3 hours agoTampa Bay Rays pitcher Yonny Chirinos let up one run in relief of opener Ryne Stanek on Wednesday. He only tossed 3 2/3 innings in this one striking out two against a tough Dodgers lineup. It’s possible that he will get a straight start or two in the Rays long stretch of consecutive games. He’s owned in 46 percent of Yahoo leagues which means that he is a viable streaming options in a lot of leagues. A 3.26 ERA could help a lot of fantasy teams especially considering how some studs have struggled recently. The strikeout upside isn’t huge, but he’s always a good option for a win and maintaining solid ratios. His next appearance should be a good matchup against the Blue Jays.--Zach Alexander - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
4 hours agoBoston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-6 with one RBI on Wednesday. He’s hitting .375 over the past two weeks with a homer, 11 runs, and nine RBI. Bogaerts is just about as solid as they come when he’s fully healthy in the heart of the Sox order. It would be nice to see him get going on the base paths to increase his value, but the season production has been phenomenal. His slash sits at .278/.376/.489 with eight home runs, 34 runs, and 32 RBI with one steal. He’ll look to stay hot in the Sox last game of the Toronto series and then head to Houston for a tough series against the Astros. He’s not a guy that should be sat in any matchups.--Zach Alexander - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4 hours agoBoston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers has hit three home runs in his last three games. He homered on Wednesday against the Blue Jays to increase his total to six on the season. He’s also slashing a terrific .320/.390/.472 with six steals. If owners were disappointed in the power before this week, they sure aren’t anymore. Those betting against him repeating last year’s season are reaping the benefits now. The only thing left to do to increase his value is to move him up the order. He hit fifth on Wednesday but there’s not much room at the top of the order. Even at fifth or sixth, he’s still a great third base option.--Zach Alexander - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4 hours agoBoston Red Sox second baseman Michael Chavis hit a game winning solo home run to lift the Red Sox over the Blue Jays Wednesday. There were doubts about him hanging on to the second base job with Eduardo Nunez available and Dustin Pedroia rehabbing, but those are long gone. This was his 10th home run of the season and in grand fashion after the Sox bullpen blew two save opportunities. The 23-year-old is hitting .287/.385/.574 with the 10 homers and 25 RBI. It’s likely too late to buy for a reasonable price, but options at second base are limited. There may still be an opportunity to give up another surging youngster at a deeper position. Start Chavis everywhere with confidence.--Zach Alexander - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4 hours agoBoston Red Sox relief pitcher Marcus Walden blew the save opportunity in a 4-3 game on Wednesday. With the Red Sox struggling to find anyone who can lock down the ninth, the situation isn’t ideal for fantasy managers. Even Matt Barnes, who has been great so far, let up an eighth inning home run to Justin Smoak. At this point, he’s the only one worth owning for the strikeouts and ratios. You have to wonder if GM Dave Dombrowski will continue to accept what this bullpen is doing to a very talented team. Fantasy managers (and Sox fans) everywhere would love to see Craig Kimbrel back in Boston, however, that reunion still seems unlikely. Avoid this situation for now.--Zach Alexander - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
4 hours agoBuffalo Bills tight end Jason Croom was seen walking off the practice field with a trainer during organized team activities on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury. Running backs Frank Gore (ankle, foot) and T.J. Yeldon (groin) are also nursing injuries. Gore was limited while Yeldon sat out. With tight end Tyler Kroft (foot) out three to four months with a fractured foot, Buffalo's tight end room is already shrinking. Rookie Dawson Knox could be forced into significant playing time in his first season, although he won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues. Lee Smith could also see a big role early on in the year, depending on the severity and type of injury Croom is dealing with.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: WGR 550 - Sal Capaccio
4 hours agoChicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said that the team will be patient with when they decide to promote top pitching prospect Dylan Cease. Hahn did say that Cease could be a major leaguer “perhaps around the All-Star break in early July.” Cease owns 3-1 record with a 3.71 ERA in seven starts for Triple-A Charlotte. Cease is worth picking up in all formats when he does get called up.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource: Daryl Van Schouwen
4 hours agoDenver Broncos wide receiver Daesean Hamilton (knee) said his knee bothered him at the end of last season. He spent much of the offseason training in Florida and focused on putting weight on and getting stronger and faster. Hamilton said his knee is feeling great now as training camp approaches. The 24-year-old fourth-round pick had 30 receptions for 243 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in his rookie season. He could make some noise in deeper leagues as the No. 3 wideout behind Emmanuel Sanders and Courtland Sutton this season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Athletic - Nicki Jhabvala
4 hours agoChicago White Sox third baseman Yoan Moncada went 2-for-5 with a run scored and RBI. Moncada has slowed down since a hot start, but is still hitting a respectable .281 with 31 runs, nine home runs and 29 RBI. Moncada should be started in most formats.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:

4 hours agoChicago White Sox starting pitcher Ivan Nova allowed ten hits, three runs, one walk and struck out three batters versus the Houston Astros in seven innings. Nova has been one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball this year, so it was surprising to see him last this long versus a tough Astros lineup. Nova now owns a 6.96 ERA going into to a start versus the Royals on Monday. Nova should be left on waivers in all formats.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:
4 hours agoChicago White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs, two RBI and three runs scored versus the Houston Astros on Wednesday. It was the youngsters second multi-home run game of his young career. Jimenez was activated from the disabled list on Monday and was 0-for-8 since his return coming into tonight. Jimenez hasn’t taken off as most people expected, but he remains one of the top prospects in all of baseball and should be owned in all formats. Jimenez is now hitting .233 with five home runs and ten RBI.--Daniel Burdeen - RotoBallerSource:
