Tim Lincecum gave up three runs (two earned) on nine hits with two walks and three strikeouts over just 4.2 innings against the Indians on Saturday.
The Tribe really worked Lincecum well early on and forced him from the game after having thrown 98 pitches (58 strikes) before even getting through a full five innings. He did induce nine ground ball outs so the contact the Indians were making wasn't all that strong. This is the third time in five starts that he failed to go more than five innings and while the strikeouts can be a nice bonus, his inability to go deep into games diminishes his value. He'll square off against the Braves next week.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Kenneth Faried will start Monday against the Bucks.
Faried should be started in all fantasy formats, now that he has been given the green light to start by both the coaching and medical staffs. He proved off the bench in his last outing that he can post fantasy worthy production in even limited minutes, so his prospects should be good as a starter on Monday night against the Bucks.

Robert Quinn is making progress from his back issue.
After missing Sunday's game, Quinn seems to be making steps toward's returning. Quinn is one of the game's elite pass rushers but has been slowed down by injuries all season long. Quinn is two years removed from a 19 sack season and the Rams are hoping he returns to that when he gets back on the field. Analysis: James Grande
