The news of the injury is news to us as he went for a huge 24-14 double-double in Game 1 and played more than his typical workload. So this doesn't sound like a terribly serious issue for him and Thursday should be another big night for him as the Heat didn't seem to have anyone that could matchup with him despite having Hassan Whiteside on the floor. More updates should come after morning shootaround on Thursday but Valanciunas should be a full go.
Cleveland had already announced that there would be an open competition in camp for the starting QB role and Hue Jackson has also said that he loved Kessler's tape and his accuracy. With RGIII assumed to be the opening week starter, he could prove in camp that he is better than just a back up but the problem could come late in the season as the weather gets worse and his arm strength comes more into question. Either way he is not going to be worth rostering even if he's the Week 1 guy as the Browns offense is still horrendous at the skill positions.
Piscotty has six hits in his last three contests, but he hasn’t homered since April 26. Piscotty is hitting .303 on the season with four bombs, 18 RBI, 17 runs scored and one stolen base. He is a top-25 fantasy outfielder right now and he has the potential to keep that going. He has never faced tomorrow’s starter Jared Eickhoff.
Leake had a good matchup for DFS players today, but Leake was unable to capitalize on a matchup with the Philadelphia Phillies. He surrendered four earned runs in just five innings, while striking out just three batters. In six starts this season, Leake has allowed at least three earned runs in each start, including four or more runs on four different occasions. The long ball has also been a problem for Leake of late, seeing as he has served up six homers in his last 24 innings pitched. His next start will come on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Angels.
Herrera has five hits in his last three games, pushing that batting average up to .319 on the season. He is contributing across the board for the Phillies and fantasy owners, which is why he is currently a top-10 player at his position. Continue to roll with the young outfielder in your lineups.
