FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Alex Gordan blasted his 14th home run of the season while adding a walk but it was not enough as the Royals fell to the Rockies 5-2 on Wednesday. 

Gordon had a five game hit streak, including four-straight multi-hit performances, come to an end Tuesday, but he picked it right back up with his second home run in four days. The Royals have been on quite the surge lately and it's no coincidence that a Gordon hit streak has something to do with it. Him finishing the season strong will obviously be a blessing to the Royals themselves, but fantasy owners will be freaking out if he can put it together for them finally as well. With a .284/.360/.450 on the year and a hot streak towards the end of the season, Gordon could end up the fantasy MVP for a lot of teams.ANALYST: Howard Bender
