Jeff Samardzija fell to 3-3 after allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks with three strikeouts over 3.2 innings against the Mets on Wednesday.
Shark has had a couple of rough outings since coming over to Oakland, but this one takes the cake. This is that kick right to the fantasy groin. Just a heap of disgusting. So much so that what do you say?This isn't his normal level of production. He will have much better outings than this one. Sometimes you just get thumped. He doe have a rather interesting match-up next week when he faces the Astros in hitter-friendly Minute Maid Park. ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Rams will start Nick Foles Sunday.
Yuk, yuk, yuk. Case Keenum is being held out of action after his concussion suffered at the end of Sunday's game against the Ravens. Going up against the Bengals, you do not want to consider using Foles, who was recently benched after putting up awful results against the Bears in Week 10. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
Tyson Chandler (right hamstring strain) is listed as doubtful to play Sunday.
While the team needs his presence on the court, if a hamstring injury is not allowed to heal, it is always a risk that a minor strain can end up sidelining a player for weeks if re-aggravated. It would be best to let him heal, but look to see if he is activated for the game on Sunday. The suggestion is to avoid rostering him, but perhaps he just had a mild tweak to his hamstring and is a good option. Not my choice going forward, understand. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
