Addison Reed registered his 27th save of the season after allowing one hit while striking out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's win over the Pirates.
Reed was able to collect his second save in as many days on Thursday, expect this time he did not allow a three-run home run in the final frame. He has now converted 27 of his first 32 save opportunities with his last blown-save coming back on July 8. Although his 3.15 ERA and 1.15 WHIP aren't the most appealing, the fact that he has just 12 walks over 44.1 innings while striking out 52 batters certainly makes him well worth a roster spot moving forward.

Julio Jones did not practice Monday.
Jones is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and while he was able to play Sunday, there is concern this week with the short turnaround for the Thursday game. Consider him day-to-day and stay on top of all the latest news before making your final lineup decision. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts thinks he'll play against Jacksonville.
Shorts missed Thursday's game with a shoulder injury but both he and the team believe that he will be able to play this week. With DeAndre Hopkins being the clear-cut No. 1 and with the emergence of Jalen Strong and Keith Mumphrey, it's difficult to see Shorts getting enough work to be a productive fantasy play. He'll still see a few targets if he's on the field, but he'll be hit-or-miss. Analysis: Howard Bender
