FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 with one RBI, two runs scored and a walk during the Braves' 8-0 win over the Reds on Thursday.

Heyward is now hitting .310 with five RBI and six runs scored over his last seven games as he continues to do a good job atop the Braves lineup. Although he has yet to live up to his full potential, since moving to the leadoff spot Heyward has been able to utilize his solid on-base percentage (.335) and turn it into stolen bases (14). As long as he continues to show patience, he makes for a nice fantasy piece even if the power stats aren't there to back him up. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
