A.J. Burnett gave up just one run on three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over six innings against the nationals on Saturday.

Burnett earned his second consecutive win on Saturday, and has now allowed only three earned runs over his last four starts as he continues his early season dominance in his first year with the Phillies. He is now sitting 2-1 on the season with a 2.06 ERA and 1.21 WHIP while striking out under one batter per inning (7.21 K/9). Although his ground ball-to-fly ball rate is trending in the wrong direction compared to last season (1.25 GB/ FB Rate), there is no doubt he will continue to be a solid fantasy contributor as the season progresses. He will look to keep the ball rolling when he takes on the Blue Jays on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Jordan Reed is dealing with a right knee sprain and an ankle sprain to go along with his concussion.

The oft-injured tight end now has a bevy of them that he's dealing with and we're only four weeks into the season. Though he was able to play through the ankle sprain to have five catches for 37 yards, he won't be able to play through the concussion without being cleared first. This is far from the first concussion he's had in his career so it could be a little longer than usual before he comes back to the Skins starting lineup. In his place Derek Carrier will get the start at tight end. Analysis: Matt Selz

Vontae Davis was spotted wearing a walking boot on Monday.

The actual cause for his wearing the boot is still unknown but it's generally not a good sign to see the top cover corner for your team in a boot. Davis' injury also comes a bad week given that it's a short turnaround for Indy as they head to Houston for Thursday Night Football. When he missed time during the Monday night game against the Jets Week 2, Brandon Marshall shredded his replacement which could mean a decent bump in DeAndre Hopkins looks. Analysis: Matt Selz

Coach Dan Quinn said he's hopeful to have Tevin Coleman (rib) back to practice Wednesday.

When the injury news suffered about Coleman and his cracked rib the timeline for his return was set at two weeks and then go off pain tolerance at that point. If he is ready to go for Week 5 then he certainly could be worth a flex play given the way Atlanta's offense has been rolling of late and that while Devonta Freeman posted insane numbers the last two weeks, he did most of his damage in the passing game and Terron Ward produced on the ground. Analysis: Matt Selz

Charlotte's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will need shoulder surgery and be sidelined six months.

Coming off a season in which he posted career highs in minutes, points, and rebounds per game this is a big blow for a Carolina squad that was looking to make a run in the Eastern Conference. The six month time frame puts him on a pace to potentially return in time for the last month of the season. In his place Charlotte will look to fill in the minutes with a combination of P.J. Hairston, Marvin Williams, Jeremy Lamb, and Nicolas Batum. Analysis: Matt Selz

49ers Quinton Patton sustained a concussion Sunday.

He will now have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before he will be allowed to practice or play. The already struggling San Fran offense now loses a wideout option for at least a week and will have to look elsewhere to jump start it's ability to move the ball downfield. Analysis: Matt Selz

Bears coach John Fox says X-rays on S Antrel Rolle's ankle were negative.

A watching of the replay would have you believe there is noway his ankle didn't break, but it turns out it's likely a sprain as the X-rays came back clean. Rolle was in a walking boot on the sideline for the rest of the second half and his status for Week 5 is still up in the air but it's more likely than not that he misses the game in the "sea of red" that is Arrowhead Stadium. Harold Jones-Quartey should fill in for him if he can't go Sunday. Analysis: Matt Selz

Manager Bob Melvin says it's unclear if Coco Crisp (neck) can be an everyday player next year.

An aging veteran with an injury-plagued 2015 season and who is never quite fully healthy is the description best befitting of Crisp. He can certainly still play when healthy but it sounds like his best option for playing time come 2016 will be in a platoon role in Oakland. If that is the case he will have very little fantasy value in everyday formats since he can't be counted on to be on the field. Analysis: Matt Selz

Jabari Parker said he will not play in preseason game in Chicago on Tuesday night.

Milwaukee will be bringing their young superstar along slowly for the foreseeable future as he returns from an ACL injury last season. With this strategy it also means he likely won't play all the time to start the year which should be taken into account when drafting him. If he's still available after the midway point of the draft he has good value. Analysis: Matt Selz

Texans coach Bill O’Brien told reporters that Ryan Mallett is still the starting quarterback heading into Week 5 game against the Colts.

The more accurate description should be he's been named the starting QB for the first half of Week 5's divisional showdown considering the quarterback changes never seem to stop in Houston. Mallet has played in all or part of all four games this year compiling 720 yards on 51.8% completion rate with three scores and three picks. Neither he or Hoyer are worth anything in fantasy right now. Analysis: Matt Selz
