Jeff Samardzija allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over six innings against the Twins on Saturday.
Samardzija improved to 3-1 since being dealt to the A's following Saturday's performance, although he now has just five wins total on the season. Since joining the A's rotation, Samardzija is posting a 3.08 ERA and 0.91 WHIP through 49.1 innings while maintaining a solid 35:7 K:BB rate. However, he has now allowed six home runs in that same stretch, after giving up only seven home runs in 108.1 innings as a member of the Cubs. While this should be alarming to fantasy owners, it should not lead to second guessing when it is his turn on the hill as it is just something to monitor down the stretch. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Royals on Thursday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson could split third-down snaps.
Due to his tenure in Buffalo, Jackson is going to get some work, but this won't be a 50/50 split by any means. McCoy is an uber-talented back who will be the bell cow out in Buffalo. Fantasy owners who draft McCoy in drafts this upcoming season should also draft Jackson, solely as a handcuff option. The reported split should be taken with a grain of salt until we get clarification closer to season time. Analysis: Colby Conway
Marlins released SS Yosmany Guerra.
Guerra is 32 years old and has yet to play at a level higher than Double-A. He wasn't really a fantasy asset to begin with, but this news just confirms that notion. If for some unforsaken reason you rostered Guerra, it is time to release him, just like the Marlins did today. Analysis: Colby Conway
Chris Andersen (calf) will start Tuesday against the Spurs.
Andersen is dealing with calf and shoulder issues, but he is going to play in this game. The team is already thin in the frontcourt so Andersen will play in this game, but expect him to play under his normal amount of minutes. Tim Duncan should be a great play in DFS as he should have his way with a thin Miami frontcourt. Analysis: Colby Conway
