Fantasy Player Updates & News  Anyone Can Play. Everyone Can Win!

Mike Minor pitched seven innings of one run ball allowing three walks and striking out seven Reds on the way to his fourth win of the season in the Braves 7-2 victory Wednesday.  

The only damage allowed by Mike Minor was a solo-home run to the Reds Zack Cozart. Minor has been plagued by the long-ball of late having allowed five home runs in his last three starts, but overall his peripherals suggest he is taking a minor step forward from the respectable first full-season he put together last year and is on his way to fulfilling his pre-draft sleeper hype.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Darrelle Revis (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.

Revis has not yet been cleared via the league's concussion protocol. He will not practice until he does. If he is unable to play this week against the Dolphins, then Darrin Walls will fill in at corner. Analysis: Howard Bender

Charcandrick West will not practice Wednesday.

West is still recovering from the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 11 and could be in danger of missing this week's match-up with the Bills. He'll probably be listed as questionable but check the practice reports Friday to see how he fares. If he doesn't play, then Spencer Ware seems like the logical choice. However, the Chiefs also have Knile Davis, who could see some touches as well if he is active. Analysis: Howard Bender

Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday.

We are looking at a game-time decision on who will start for the Eagles on Thanksgiving against the Lions. Mark Sanchez was less than impressive in his Week 11 start and Sam Bradford has been cleared to play. We will see what Chip Kelly decides. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Dwight Howard said he will be permitted to play in both games in there upcoming back-to-backs.

The Rockets had said that they would be cautious with their big man knowing his injury history all too well. It seems that strategy is going out the door quickly as the Rockets have gotten off to a rough start and have already fired their coach. Lets see if this will hurt him later in the season.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Devonta Freeman is not practicing Wednesday. He's still in the leagues concussion protocol.

This is not good. Freeman has yet to pass the first phase of the league's concussion protocol which does not bode well for his chances to play in Week 12 against the Vikings. You will have to keep an eye on the situation throughout the week but in the meantime, make sure you have Tevin Coleman on your roster.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Philly Brown is questionable for Thursday's game.

It is a good sign that Corey "Philly" Brown was a participant at all in practice on Tuesday but Coach Ron Rivera does not seem as optimistic about his return on Thursday against the Cowboys. Brown continues to nurse a shoulder injury. Even if Brown is able to play, he should not be started or even owned in most all fantasy league formats. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Charles Tillman is doubtful for Thursday's game.

Charles Tillman suffered a hyperextended knee in Week 10 and was unable to play in the Panthers Week 11 win over the Redskins. Bene Benwikere has been getting the extra playing time in Tillman's absence on the outside while Colin Jones filling in as the slot corner. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Mike Adams (ankle) is not at the early portion of practice open to the media Wednesday.

Adams did not suit up in Week 11 against the Falcons as he continues to deal with an ankle injury. The original thought was he would be ready after the bye but it doesn't look good for a return in Week 12 against the Buccaneers. Colt Anderson will likely draw another start at free safety.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Frank Gore (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Frank Gore is now 32 years old and his body has taken a beating over the years. He suffered a knee/quad injury early during the Colts win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. There were repots that he had a noticeable limp on the sideline. Indianapolis will play safe with their veteran running back by limiting his snaps in practice. We should see him in Week 12 against the Buccaneers. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Channing Frye will start Wednesday night.

Frye is averaging 6.6 points and 3.4 rebounds a game through nine games for the Magic in 2015. We learned earlier today that Victor Oladipo will come off the bench during Wednesday's game.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Victor Oladipo will come off the bench Wednesday.

After the Magic's loss on Monday night to the Cavaliers, Head Coach Scott Skiles said that it's "time to change the lineup." We have seen Oladipo benched multiple times in the past week, and it looks like Elfrid Payton will stay in the starting lineup while Oladipo moves to the second unit because they're not playing well off each other right now. If you own him, don't go freaking out just yet and don't make the mistake of selling him at a low value right now. Lets see how this all shakes out. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Amar'e Stoudemire (illness) did not travel with the team to Detroit and will not play Wednesday.

The Heat will not have the services of Amar'e Stoudemire on Wednesday night but it looks like they will get Hassan Whiteside back on the court against Andre Drummond. Erik Spoelstra will have to work Udonis Haslem into the rotation without Stoudemire in the lineup.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Hassan Whiteside (illness) participated in this morning's team shootaround and says he will play in Wednesday's game.

The Heat will definitely need Whiteside's size inside against the rebounding machine known as Andre Drummond. Whiteside had been dealing with stomach problems but it appears that he is getting over that. This is not official yet so keep your eye on the situation as we get closer to game-time.  Analysis: Drew Phelps
