Tim Lincecum allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six batters over six innings against the Rockies on Friday.
Lincecum posted his best start of the month on Friday, despite failing to factor into the decision. He is now 5-4 with a 4.81 ERA and 1.49 WHIP through his first 14 stats (76.2 IP) while managing to strikeout just under one batter per inning pitched (8.92 K/9). As long as he can keep striking out his opposition at a high clip, there is still fantasy value to be had from Lincecum even if he doesn't contribute much elsewhere.The Giants hurler will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Diamondbacks on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jeremy Langford had 30 snaps compared to 37 for Matt Forte on Thursday night.
On the one hand, Langford has played well enough to earn increased playing time, as he became the first Bears rookie running back with rushing touchdowns in four consecutive games since Walter Payton. On the other hand, Matt Forte was playing for the first time since spraining his MCL, and his limited work load could be a result of wanting to ease him back into action. We will have to see how the snaps shake out in Week 13 before we can draw too many conclusions. Analysis: Steve Pimental
