Fantasy Player Updates & News  Play Hard - Win BIG!

Freddie Freeman went 2-for-5 with a home run and a pair of runs scored in a 6-5 loss to the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Freeman logged his first multi-hit performance since May 27 in his last game, which has dropped his batting average to .290 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI on the season. He ended the month of May with just three home runs after smacking six in April, so hopefully this performance will get him moving back in the right direction after a rough stretch carrying over from a poor ending of the previous month.ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Browns CB Justin Gilbert has been ruled out with a concussion.

That will be it for Gilbert who suffered the concussion on the kick return to open the second half. He will now undergo the league's concussion protocol and will not be allowed to even practice until he passes them all. Marlon Moore will likely see more return work now. Analysis: Howard Bender

Browns QB Josh McCown is being evaluated on the sideline with apparent shoulder injury.

McCown took a hit and was rammed hard into the ground on the shoulder. He was being worked on by trainers and took some practice throws. Sideline reports have him able to return, so we'll look for that the next time the Browns have the ball here in the early goings of the fourth quarter. Analysis: Howard Bender

Browns CB Justin Gilbert is heading to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion.

So the leg is fine but the head isn't. Gilbert did appear to hit hit head hard when he was flipped over during the return. He will not return unless he passes all of his tests and receives on-the-spot medical clearance. Analysis: Howard Bender

Joakim Noah scored eight points (4-6 FGA) with 11 rebounds, and seven assists in 23 minutes off the bench on Monday night versus San Antonio.

It was a productive night off the bench for Noah on Monday as he nearly had a triple-double in just 23 minutes. With the former Florida product voluntarily coming off the bench this year it killed his fantasy value as he pretty much only provides rebounding numbers. Analysis: Matt Selz

Jimmy Butler scored 14 points (5-9 FGA, 4-4 FTA) with three rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 40 minute Monday night.

Butler has been one of the most consistent parts of Chicago over the past few years and that is continuing at another level this year. He has greatly increased his scoring output and is producing very solid rebounding and assist totals to boot. He is quietly at a high level and should be used in all formats regularly. Analysis: Matt Selz

Browns CB Justin Gilbert is walking off the field with trainers after suffering apparent leg injury on kick return.

Gilbert was hot low and flipped over after the hit. He was likely more stunned by the whole hit than he was hurt. He'll be looked at by trainers on the sideline but this doesn't appear to be anything too serious. Analysis: Howard Bender

Derrick Rose scored 11 points (5-17 FGA, 1-2 FTA) with six assists, four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 34 minutes in Monday's win.

When he is actually playing, Rose is a very solid point guard who has lost a step from his MVP campaign a few years back. Rose is more suited for season long type leagues right now without his big time upside he used to offer, that tampers down his value in DFS formats. Analysis: Matt Selz

Pau Gasol scored a team-high 18 points (6-18 FGA, 6-8 FTA) with 13 rebounds, four assists, three blocks, and one steal in 30 minutes in Monday's win over San Antonio.

While the seven-footer is averaging a double-double this season he is down in both points and rebounds from last season. Now a lot has changed since last year, the main thing being Fred Hoiberg is the coach now with a different system. He is also creeping up in age now too meaning that he may not be able to recreate his season from a year ago but he is still capable of being a very productive center option. Analysis: Matt Selz

Tony Parker scored 13 points (6-12 FGA, 1-2 FTA) with nine assists, and one rebound in 31 minutes Monday night.

Mr. Consistent is what Parker has been pretty much all season to this point and that trend should continue as he has Aldridge and Leonard to dish it to. While he may not be a top-tier PG option at this point in his career you could certainly do far worse than Parker. Analysis: Matt Selz

Tim Duncan scored six points (3-7 FGA) with 12 rebounds, three assists, and a block in 30 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls.

As the 18-year vet is clearly getting closer to the end of the road he is still a solid player but certainly not what he once was. He is only averaging 10.0 PPG compared to his career average of 19.4 PPG, though his rebounding skills have not diminished much. Duncan is still worth playing mostly in season long leagues for his rebounding and blocking but don't expect much in the way of scoring from him at this point. Analysis: Matt Selz

Kawhi Leonard scored a game-high 25 points (9-21 FGA, 7-9 FTA) with eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 40 minutes of action on Monday against Chicago.

The former Aztec is having one heck of a first month and change to the NBA season averaging 22.0 PPG, 7.8 RPG, and 2.4 APG coming into the night. There was some talk when the Spurs offered him the max contract that he may not be worth it, but right now he is absolutely putting that talk to sleep with his performance on the court. Analysis: Matt Selz

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 21 points (10-18 FGA, 1-3 FTA) with 12 rebounds, and a block in 33 minutes Monday night in a 92-89 loss.

Aldridge has continued to heat up as he gets adjusted to the new system in San Antonio after coming over in the off-season. While he is still below his career average in points, there are more weapons around him on the Spurs than there were in Portland. That said he is a bonafide star at the four so he should continue to produce at a high level. Analysis: Matt Selz

C.J. Mosley is on the field to start the second half after suffering a minor injury in the first half.

Mosely came off the field late in the first half with a leg issue and received treatment on the sidelines. He went in to the locker room with the team at halftime and seems to be doing just fine. Analysis: Howard Bender

76ers rookie center Jahlil Okafor will have security guards with him when he goes out to prevent future off the court incidents from occurring.

Okafor was involved in a street fight outside a Boston night club last week and that comes on the heels of an incident in October where Okafor had a gun pulled on him after getting into an argument at a Philadelphia club. It's actually not that uncommon for teams to provide security for its players, so it seems to have proven effective in the past. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jazz guard Rodney Hood has returned to the floor after suffering a rib injury earlier in the game.

The rib injury is extremely minor and nothing that would hold Hood out of a game. He should be just fine moving forward. Analysis: Howard Bender
