Mike Trout went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Orioles on Tuesday.
Tough night for the Angels as Trout was one of just two players to get a hit Tuesday against Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez. Of course, Trout made his felt even more with a two-run blast, his 24th of the season, which ultimately sent Gonzalez to the showers. Just Trout being Trout, right people? Batting a cool .309 with 24 dingers, 76 RBI and 10 stolen bases. Could the stolen base total be higher? Sure. But complaining about Trout's numbers just makes you sound like jerk, not a savvy fantasy owner.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Justin Pugh (concussion) is not practicing Wednesday.
This is an odd situation as the offensive lineman is now in the concussion protocol, but the Giants only said Pugh was dealing with an illness. Apparently, Pugh has had concussion-like symptoms prior to Week 9 and it’s never a good sign he is still having issues after the bye week. Consider the offensive lineman doubtful at best for Week 12.

J.J. Watt named AFC Defensive Player of the Week
Watt continues to be a monster and had another huge week as he collected eight tackles and two sacks in the Texans victory over the Jets. For the season, Watt has 50 combined tackles and 11.5 sacks and will once again be one of the top IDP performers and will strongly be considered to win the defensive player of the year award.

Eric Ebron said his recent struggles will end this week.
Ebron has been all hype since he was drafted by the Lions in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Fantasy owners don’t fall for this spin and look elsewhere if tight end is a position of need. Ebron dropped a would be touchdown against the Raiders and finished the game without recording a catch. The Lions tight end is trying to remain optimistic, but his fantasy value moving forward remains limited. Analysis: Phil Backert
