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
Tom Brady completed 23-of-42 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots 30-24 OT loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
Brady turned in one of his better games of the season and Sunday and while he's certainly had better numbers in previous games it is hard to ignore the lack of weapons on the offensive side of the ball that he had at his disposal with injuries to Dion Lewis, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola over the last three weeks. Brady tossed three more touchdown passes on Sunday night, connecting with Rob Gronkowski, Scott Chandler and Brandon Bolden for the scores. Late in the fourth quarter the Patriots passing attack suffered another tremendous blow as Rob Gronkowski was carted off with a knee injury which at the time appeared to be severe and yet Brady still managed to drive the Patriots down the field for a game tying field goal try to send the contest into OT. If Gronk is forced to miss any extended amount of time the fantasy impact for Brady will take another big blow as the available offensive weapons will be reduced to the very bottom of the depth chart.
