Ryan Howard fell a double short of the cycle but went 4-for-5 with a triple, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored against the Rockies on Sunday.
Howard's four-hit performance was just the second multi-hit game of the season for the big lefty, and just his first since Opening Day. He is currently sporting a .262 average with four home runs and 10 RBI, but his production has been sporadic at best. With that said, those in head-to-head leagues will want to play the matchups when using Howard in your starting lineup, because the way he is performing could actually hurt you more then help you in the early going.

Henry Walker scored 12 points, grabbed nine rebounds, recorded five assists, and four steals in the Heat 99-86 loss to the Hawks on Friday night.
The artist formerly known as “Bill Walker” had one of his better performances of the season, as he stuffed the stat sheet in every conceivable fashion on Friday night. He scored 12 points, grabbed nine boards, recorded five assists, and four steals, all in the name of diversifying his efforts and tying to help the Heat get into the win column. Unfortunately the Hawks proved to be too much for Miami, as they rolled them 99-86. Only consider Walker in daily leagues, were he can be bought on the cheap. Analysis: Dom Murtha
