Alex Cobb allowed three runs on five hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings against the Tigers on Friday.
Cobb's struggles continued as he failed to pitch past the fifth inning for the third consecutive start and while he's won his last two outings, he's still given up 12 earned runs over 15 innings with just a 10:5 K:BB. Not to mention that he's thrown just three quality starts over his last eight outings. Fantasy owners had been expecting more from the 26-year-old right-hander, and it's at the point now where you can't trust him to perform as well as we once thought he would on a regular basis. He's downgraded to weekly streamer in leagues of 12 teams or fewer but still might be worth a look next week when he faces the Royals at home.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
