Jean Segura went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and a stolen base during the Brewers' 5-4 loss to the Braves on Thursday.
Segura has obviously gotten off to a much slower start this year than he did last and for that, he's being vilified in the fantasy community and being written off by many. Perfect time to buy low. He hit .244 with one home run, five RBI, 11 runs scored and five stolen bases over the first month and has already matched those totals with a .284 average here in May with still another week's worth of games to go. Is it the big breakout that we saw in 2013? No. But he's still on-pace for 30 steals and with steady improvement as the year progresses, he should surpass that total easily. The power he showed early last year was never something anyone expected from him, so don;t expect that again, but the average, the steals and the runs scored are coming. You won;t be disappointed come year end. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Marshawn Lynch indicated to the Seahawks he is retiring.
It was reported Lynch told his friends he would retire, and he tweeting a picture that seemed to indicate he would retire, and now he has reportedly told the Seahawks the same thing. It wouldn't be at all surprising for Lynch to change his mind at some point, but as of right now, all signs point to him retiring. The Seahawks will likely draft or sign at least one running back this offseason, but as it stands right now, Thomas Rawls is the starting running back in Seattle. Analysis: Steve Pimental
J.J. Redick scored 14 points (5-of-11 FGA, 1-of-2 3PA, 3-of-3 FTA) on Sunday night against the Heat.
Redick was solid but did nothing spectacular on Sunday night against the Heat, as he finished with 14 points on surprisingly only a single three pointer. His presence was mostly felt in the way that he runs defenses ragged off of ball screens and backdoor cuts. While he does always have the potential to go off with a barrage of three pointers, Redick remains a risky fantasy play due to his status as a one trick pony. Having said all of this, at 16 points per game, you can do a lot worse at the two-guard position. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Archie Manning said he thinks Peyton Manning is "done in Denver."
The Broncos probably need to keep Brock Osweiler, and some team will pay Osweiler to be their starter in 2016 if the Broncos are unwilling to do so. This leaves the door open for Manning to go to a team like the Rams, but it would probably make the most sense for Peyton to begin the season as a free agent and sign somewhere in the fall when some contender suffers a quarterback injury.

Luke Kuechly recorded ten tackles to lead the Panthers in their Super Bowl loss to Denver on Sunday night.
Luke Kuechly once again was a major cog in the Panther defense in Super Bowl 50. He was the only player to record double digit tackles on either team that featured two physical and mobile defenses. Not only did Kuechly make 10 tackles, but he also had a sack and a pass defended for Carolina. In IDP formats, Kuechly is a machine due to his high volume of tackles and this year his touchdowns as a result of interceptions. His nose for the ball and high energy of play make him a top linebacker in the NFL. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Graham Gano was 1-for-2 in field goal attempts and made his only extra-point in the Panthers loss to the Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
In the regular season, Graham Gano was the second leading scorer with 146 points for the Panthers. He made 30-of-36 field goal attempts in the regular season but missed a key kick in the first half for Carolina in Super Bowl 50. His kick went right and hit the upright. Gano did recover to make a 39 yard field goal in the second half along with an extra-point to finish with four points in the game. But his miss may haunt him this offseason. But, Gano made over 83 percent of his field goals in the regular season and will be in a high scoring offense in 2016, so his fantasy stock remains the same going forward. Analysis: Greg Jewett
