Good news for the Bengals, who are already missing Rex Burkhead. If Hill does not return, it figures to be a busy rest of the night for Gio Bernard.
This just means that Gio Bernard and Jeremy Hill will likely get whatever reps that were set aside for Burkhead. This does not affect fantasy at all.
Butler did not figure to start, but would play if healthy. Antonio Cromartie figures to get some extra reps in his absence on a Colts defense that is at the bottom of the league.
Not a statement brimming with confidence from the Nats' skipper. Murphy will not be back in the regular season, and if he cannot go in the post season Wilmer Difo and Stephen Drew will spit time until he returns. Murphy has produced a huge return on investment with a .347 average, 25 home runs and 104 RBI. He will be one of the first second basemen off the board in 2017.
Johnson figures to play on Sunday, but has yet to make an impact on the Panthers' defense, and has yet to record a sack on the season. If he does not play, it will not impact the Panthers' defense much.
Hellickson went to the clubhouse with the trainer during the fourth inning. Colton Murray replaced him, and his status is unknown at this point.
The Shark has had an up and down 2016, but it has been a much better campaign than his forgettable 2015. His 3.81 ERA and 1.20 WHIP put him just outside the top 30 starters for 2016. He is a mid rotation starter in 2017 drafts.
Garcia hit .269 with 14 home runs and 63 RBI for the Braves in 2016. Unless they make some moves in the offseason, there does not appear to be much to push him in the spring for the starting job. He is a nice option in deep leagues and NL only leagues in 2017.
Burfict will play Thursday night against Miami, and figures to be full go. It has been reported he will be on a limited snap count, but if he appears to be in game shape, that mark could easily be surpassed. Deploy him in IDP leagues if you have been waiting on his services.
