Garrett Richards held Oakland at bay Monday giving up just one run on four hits, no walks with four strikeouts over seven innings.
Richards came into Monday's matchup 0-3 with a 7.50 ERA (30 IP, 25 ER) in his six career starts against the Athletics, making last night's performance even that much more impressive. One of the keys to Richards success this season is that he has allowed just two home runs over 81.1 innings pitched for a HR/9 rate that leads MLB.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Philly Brown is questionable for Thursday's game.
It is a good sign that Corey "Philly" Brown was a participant at all in practice on Tuesday but Coach Ron Rivera does not seem as optimistic about his return on Thursday against the Cowboys. Brown continues to nurse a shoulder injury. Even if Brown is able to play, he should not be started or even owned in most all fantasy league formats. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Frank Gore (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.
Frank Gore is now 32 years old and his body has taken a beating over the years. He suffered a knee/quad injury early during the Colts win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. There were repots that he had a noticeable limp on the sideline. Indianapolis will play safe with their veteran running back by limiting his snaps in practice. We should see him in Week 12 against the Buccaneers. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Victor Oladipo will come off the bench Wednesday.
After the Magic's loss on Monday night to the Cavaliers, Head Coach Scott Skiles said that it's "time to change the lineup." We have seen Oladipo benched multiple times in the past week, and it looks like Elfrid Payton will stay in the starting lineup while Oladipo moves to the second unit because they're not playing well off each other right now. If you own him, don't go freaking out just yet and don't make the mistake of selling him at a low value right now. Lets see how this all shakes out. Analysis: Drew Phelps
