Giancarlo Stanton had himself a night, smacking two home runs while driving in three RBI and a pair of runs scored in the Marlins 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Monday.
Stanton pummeled Shelby Miller in the first and third inning of the ballgame. They were home runs number 31 and 32 of the season. The massive effort pushes his season line to .292/.393/.568 with the aforementioned 32 home runs overlooked 10 stolen bases. He's having the massive season we've been waiting for and he's a surefire first round pick in next year's drafts. ANALYST:
Andre Ellington suffered a left foot injury in Week 12.
Surprise, suprise, Ellington got hurt again. The guy is made of glass and should not be started in any leagues. He should be rostered in most leagues, but he's so fragile it's basically impossible to count on him getting through an entire game without suffering some type of setback. Add that to the fact that Chris Johnson gets the majority of the carries and Ellington is even more difficult to trust. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Blake Griffin scored 26 points (9-of-16 FGA, 7-of-9 FTA), grabbed eight rebounds, and recorded eight assists on Sunday afternoon against the T-Wolves.
Blake Griffin finished a couple rebounds and assists shy of a triple-double on Sunday afternoon, as he scored 26 points, grabbed eight rebounds, and recorded eight assists. He also was pretty efficient from the floor, making 9-of-16 shots, and from the free throw line, converting 7-of-9 attempts. At this point, he has established himself as a premier fantasy player, and a fringe elite star in terms of the NBA overall. Continue to expect big things out of him going forward due to his immense talent, versatile skillset, and elite point guard to get him the ball. Analysis: Dom Murtha
