Fantasy Player Updates & News  2016 MLB Draft Guide Is Here!

Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez is 18 of 22 for 196 yards and two touchdowns through two preseason games. He threw just one incompletion Friday night against the Patriots, posting a 112.2 passer rating.

If you wanted proof of Chip Kelly's genius, look no further. If Sanchez wins the backup job and Nick Foles goes down, Sanchez would likely be a must-add in all leagues. He is still very risky, however, and there is a great chance he never throws a meaningful pass in the NFL ever again.ANALYST: Steve Pimental

C.J. McCollum scored 14 points (6-16 FGA) going 2-for-5 from three-point range with one rebound, two assists and one steal over 27 minutes in Wednesday's 116-103 win against the Rockets.

MCollum is now averaging 20.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.4 three-pointers over his last fie games, as he finished the first half on a high note. Considering he is a big part of he Trail Blazers' offense, fantasy owners should expect big time production from this shooting guard the rest of the way, barring a serious injury. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Damian Lillard scored 31 points (9-22 FGA, 9-11 FTA) going 4-for-11 from three-point range with three rebounds, nine assists and three steals over 35 minutes in Wednesday's 116-103 win against the Rockets.

Lillard has now scored 30 or more points in back-to-back games as he continues to be a huge part of the Trail Blazers' most recent success, while winning nine of their last 11 games. Through 47 games Lillard is averaging 24.3 points, 4.4 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 29 three-pointers, which makes him one of the best point guards to own moving forward while his team's offense continues to run through him.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Moe Harkless scored 19 points (8-11 FGA, 2-4 FTA) going 1-for-2 from three-point range with 13 rebounds, one assist and two steals over 28 minutes in Wednesday's 116-103 win against the Rockets.

Harkless has now started each of the Trail Blazers' last three games, having scored in double figures in each of those contests with Wednesday's double-double being his first of the season. Even with an increase in minutes, Harkless is far from being a reliable fantasy source at this time, considering he is averaging only 5.3 points and 3.2 rebounds through 52 games.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

James Harden scored a game-high 34 points (10-20 FGA, 11-14 FTA) going 3-for-8 from three-point range with nine rebounds, 11 assists and two steals over 42 minutes in Wednesday's 116-103 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Despite posting his third straight 30-point performance, Harden's production was not enough to end the Rockets current losing streak, as his team has now lost three in a row heading into the All Star break. Harden finished the first half averaging 28.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.8 three-pointers through 55 games, which makes him one of the elite fantasy options moving forward, even if his efforts do't result in wins for the Rockets.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Dwight Howard scored 28 points (13-17 FGA, 2-7 FTA) with 13 rebounds, two assists and one block over 35 minutes in Wednesday's 116-103 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Howard has now posted three straight double-doubles, while averaging 16.5 points, 14.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.5 steals over his last five games. With rumors circulating about a possible trade for the Rockets big man, there is a chance he could end up in a better situation where he could be more productive, but at this point it seems far-fetched to think he will be moved before the trade deadline.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Tyson Chandler scored 13 points (5-6 FGA, 3-5 FTA) with 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal over 27 minutes in Wednesday's 112-104 loss to the Warriors.

Chandler has been far from being a reliable fantasy option this season, as he is now averaging 5.9 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists through 45 games. However, he has picked up the pace of late, logging two double-double over his last three games, so if he can carry that over to the second half there is still a chance he can recover some of his lost value down the stretch.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Archie Goodwin scored 20 points (9-15 FGA, 1-1 FTA) going 1-for-2 from three-point range with two rebounds and two assists over 28 minutes in Wednesday's 112-104 loss to the Warriors.

Goodwin once again proved he is a reliable source of offense for the Suns as he logged his third 20-point performance in his last four games, although all have come in a losing effort. Despite a nice showing, Goodwin was involved in an altercation with his teammate Markieff Morris in Wednesday's loss, but it doesn't appear the issue will have lingering effects heading into the All- Star break.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Markieff Morris scored 19 points (9-19 FGA, 1-2 FTA) with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block over 36 minutes in Wednesday's 112-104 loss to the Warriors.

Despite having a good night from the floor in Wednesday's loss, Morris made the headlines for other reasons, as he was involved in an altercation with teammate Archie Goodwin in the bench area. This is nothing new for Morris, who has had issues with both teammates and coaches in the past, so maybe this will be enough for the Suns to really try and make a deal to get him out of the desert, where he clearly doesn't want to be a this point in his career.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Stephen Curry scored 26 points (9-17 FGA, 3-4 FTA) going 5-for-10 from three-point range with nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one block over 30 minutes in Wednesday's 112-104 win against the Suns.

Curry fell just one rebound and one assist shy of posting a triple-double on Wednesday night, which would have really been the icing on the cake after a record-setting first half. The reigning MVP has led the Warriors to a 48-4 start, which keeps them on pace to break the 1995-96 Bulls record of 72-10, bu as far as fantasy is concerned Curry remains the top options to own while averaging 29.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 2.1 steals and 4.9 three-pointers through 50 games.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Klay Thompson scored 24 points (8-20 FGA, 3-3 FTA) going 5-for-13 from three-point range with three rebounds, one assist and five steals over 33 minutes in Wednesday's 112-104 win against the Suns.

After shooting only 26.3 percent from the floor on Tuesday night, Thompson got himself back on track Wednesday, as he logged 24 or more points for the third time over his last five games. Thompson ended the first half averaging 21.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 3.2 three-pointers through 50 games, so despite playing second fiddle to Stephen Curry, the Warriors' shooting guard still remains one of the better options at his position. Analysis: Matthew Beck

Norris Cole scored 11 points (4-10 FGA, 2-2 FTA) going 1-for-1 from three-point range with two rebounds, four assists and two steals over 24 minutes in Wednesday's 100-96 win against the Jazz.

Cole has done a respectable job since joining the Pelicans starting lineup, and is now averaging 12.6 points, 2.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.2 steals over his last five games. As long as Cole continues to draw solid minutes, he remains a deep league option at the point guard position while taking advantage of being on a depleted roster.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Jrue Holiday scored 21 points (9-19 FGA, 3-4 FTA) with six rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one block over 31 minutes in Wednesday's 100-96 win against the Jazz.

Holiday has really picked up the pace of late, as he is now averaging 19.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 three-pointers over his last five games. Although the logical move would be to get him back in the Pelicans starting lineup, he has proven to be an asset when used in a bench role, so expect him production to remain at a high level, even if he remains a reserve following the All Star break.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Anthony Davis scored 19 points (7-15 FGA, 4-6 FTA) going 1-for-1 from three-point range with four rebounds, five assists and one block over 34 minutes in Wednesday's 100-96 win against the Jazz.

Davis finished the first half in a high note, as he averaged 27.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.4 steals over his last five games. Although his production hasn't moved the Pelicans back into the playoff hunt, he has proven to be a great fantasy option regardless of his surroundings, and that shouldn't change in the second half as long as he can continue to fight off the minor injuries that have plagued him to this point.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Rudy Gobert scored 12 points (3-4 FGA, 6-8 FTA) with 14 rebounds, one assist and two blocks over 33 minutes in Wednesday's 100-96 loss to the Pelicans.

Gobert has now posted double-double in each of his last three games while averaging 13.2 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five contests. Although his shot attempts have been limited for much of the season, as long as his rebounding remains consistent he is still a reliable fantasy option on a night basis.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Gordon Hayward scored 21 points (7-18 FGA, 5-7 FTA) going 2-for-9 from three-point range with four rebounds, four assists and two steals over 40 minutes in Wednesday's 100-96 loss to the Pelicans.

Hayward is now averaging 19.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.2 three-pointers over his last five games as he continues to be the go-to option in Utah's offense. Now that the Jazz appear to be back at full strength there is a chance his scoring may go down some, but considering how he contributes across the board on a nightly basis, there is nothing fantasy owners need to worry about at this time.  Analysis: Matthew Beck
