Rickie Weeks went 3-for-5 with a home run, one RBI and a pair of runs scored in Thursday's 7-4 victory over the Rockies.
Weeks had himself a nice day at the plate on Thursday, it what was his fourth start since June 21. Although Scooter Gennett is going to get the better half of the starts in the team's platoon at second base, Weeks will continue to get the nod against southpaws, but will need to have more outings like this before gaining any lasting fantasy value.

Zach Miller caught two passes on seven targets for 10 yards and a TD on Thursday night vs Green Bay.
Miller got the start in place of the injured Martellus Bennett on Thursday night. In all, he finished with two catches and a touchdown on seven targets, looking mediocre, however doing his best with the hand he was dealt. Anyone who started him in daily leagues could have expected better, however it is a bit spoiled to come away with much more than a TD as a definite backup. Consider him a wise play on Thursday night, and a keen start going forward at least until Bennett comes back healthy. Analysis: Dom Murtha
