David Carpenter pitched a 1-2-3 9th inning for his second save as the Braves defeated the Cubs 5-2 on Sunday.
We recently received a question on the Fantasy Alarm Podcast asking what bullpen arm may be worth stashing in a 15-team league? Well one to consider is Carpernter, who although was just filling in again for Craig Kimbrel who was unavailable to pitch on Sunday (rest) did show for the second consecutive time that he can handle the role as a closer when given the opportunity.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Zach Miller caught two passes on seven targets for 10 yards and a TD on Thursday night vs Green Bay.
Miller got the start in place of the injured Martellus Bennett on Thursday night. In all, he finished with two catches and a touchdown on seven targets, looking mediocre, however doing his best with the hand he was dealt. Anyone who started him in daily leagues could have expected better, however it is a bit spoiled to come away with much more than a TD as a definite backup. Consider him a wise play on Thursday night, and a keen start going forward at least until Bennett comes back healthy. Analysis: Dom Murtha
