Garrett Richards tossed six scoreless innings allowing just four hits and three walks while striking out 10 batters in a no-decision against the Braves on Saturday.
Richards was on top of his game on Saturday, but the Angles bullpen did him no favors, landing him a no-decision. He is now 6-2 with a 2.82 ERA and 1.11 WHIP through 14 starts, while striking out just under one batter per inning pitched (8.93 K/9). However, he will need to work on his free passes (30 BB through 87.2 IP) before gaining the trust of fantasy owners in all league formats. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Indians on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jake Arrieta shut the Rockies out for four innings on Saturday.
Arrieta had average numbers prior to Saturday's spring training start, but his start against the Rockies showed that he is ready to go. On paper, he isn't the Cubs' ace this season, but he certainly emerged as one of the better starters in the National League. Take Arrieta as a solid number two starter in your fantasy drafts over the next week. Analysis: David Kerr
C.J. Anderson will be the Broncos starting running back entering offseason workouts.
The Broncos have three legitimate starting running backs in Anderson, Montee Ball, and Ronnie Hillman. Given Anderson's success in the latter part of the 2014 season though, it is no surprise that Denver views him as their lead back. He should fit in well to Gary Kubiak's offensive scheme and will vault up fantasy draft boards this summer. Anderson picked up a lot of slack last year while Peyton Manning dealt with a shoulder injury and should be a strong RB1 option this year. Analysis: David Kerr
