Dustin McGowan gave up three runs on six hits and four walks with three strikeouts over just four innings against the Twins on Friday.
McGowan reverted back to the pitcher he was during his first start this season as he showed very little command of his pitches and needed to throw 85 (49 strikes) of them just to make it through the four frames. He's shown very little strikeout ability which hinders his fantasy value to begin with, but with limited command as well, his ratios will continue to climb and ruin your fantasy totals. He'll look for a rebound against the Orioles next week, but he is not a recommended starter at all.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Julio Jones did not practice Monday.
Jones is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and while he was able to play Sunday, there is concern this week with the short turnaround for the Thursday game. Consider him day-to-day and stay on top of all the latest news before making your final lineup decision. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts thinks he'll play against Jacksonville.
Shorts missed Thursday's game with a shoulder injury but both he and the team believe that he will be able to play this week. With DeAndre Hopkins being the clear-cut No. 1 and with the emergence of Jalen Strong and Keith Mumphrey, it's difficult to see Shorts getting enough work to be a productive fantasy play. He'll still see a few targets if he's on the field, but he'll be hit-or-miss. Analysis: Howard Bender
