R.A Dickey allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over 7.2 innings against the Reds on Sunday.
Dickey suffered his second consecutive loss on Sunday, having now allowed seven runs over his last two stats. Now sitting 6-6 with a 4.04 ERA and 1.40 WHIP, Dickey is still work owning in all but the shallowest of leagues, although he needs to work on both his home runs allowed (12 HR) and walks (42 BB) before being labeled a must-start every time he takes the mound. He will look to bounce back when he takes on the White Sox on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
