Fantasy Player Updates & News  Huge Overlay: $500k MLB Championship

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday.

Puig will be handing center field duties off to Andre Ethier. While Puig is having another great season, he's hit a bit of a slide in August, batting .247 with four RBI's and no home runs. Hopefully the day off will help him to get back on track, as the Dodgers' CF is due for a power surge. ANALYST: Ben Diamond

Brandon Moss went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs scored on Tuesday against the Nationals.

Moss’ three-run homer off Casey Janssen gave the Cardinals the win tonight. His walk-off round tripper was his 18th of the season and the three RBI give him 57 on the season. Moss is an absolute drain on your batting average, but the power threat is worth starting him. Analysis: Colby Conway

Marco Gonzalez allowed four earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out in 2 2/3 innings of work on Tuesday against the Nationals.

He didn’t have a real legitimate shot to stick in the rotation to begin with, but his performance today sure didn’t help him at all. The Nationals as a team hit .500 against him tonight and put on eight men during Gonzales’ short stint. Gonzalez is sure to move to a bullpen role following this shellacking and his fantasy value is zilch moving forward. Analysis: Colby Conway

Anthony Rendon went 1-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored on Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Injuries have really derailed the 2015 season for Rendon, but he is seeing the ball really well right now. He has hit safely in 11 of the last 12 games, helping raise his batting average to .268 for the season. His stat line isn’t great, but he can still help owners down the stretch run, which could make up for the headache he caused earlier on this year. Analysis: Colby Conway

Ryan Zimmerman went 1-for-5 with a solo home run on Tuesday against the Cardinals.

In DFS, there might not be a better time than right now to roster Zimmerman. He has homered in five of the last eight games and he has tallied at least one RBI in all but one of those eight games. In seasonal leagues, he is a quality play right now and his positional eligibility provides valuable lineup flexibility. Zimmerman now has 14 homers and 64 RBI for the 2015 campaign. Analysis: Colby Conway

Joe Ross allowed three earned runs on one hit and six walks while striking out three in 2 2/3 innings on Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Tough outing for Ross on Tuesday. He was erratic, en route to walking six batters in just 2 2/3 innings. This isn’t like Ross, seeing as he walked just eight batters over six starts in the month of August. Consider this just a blip on the radar, because he had been very effective in the two starts prior to tonight’s outing. His ERA jumped to 3.50 in the process, but he will look to right the ship on Sunday against the Atlanta Braves. Analysis: Colby Conway

Jake Marisnick went 2-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored and one RBI on Tuesday against the Mariners.

Even though he is hitting for a very low average, he is a good source of speed and he can leave the yard on occasion. The home runs won’t come in bunches, however, the stolen bases haven’t been consistent either. He makes for a bit of a risky play and his only value comes in the deepest of AL-only formats. Analysis: Colby Conway

Scott Feldman allowed three earned runs on three hits and five walks while striking out two in 2 2/3 innings on Tuesday against the Mariners.

Feldman was forced to leave this contest with right shoulder discomfort. He walked five batters and needed 85 pitches to get eight outs. The team will likely evaluate him moving forward, especially since he was likely dealing with some discomfort before the game started. If that is the case, that would explain why he was so erratic on Tuesday. He should be considered questionable for his Tuesday start against the Athletics. Analysis: Colby Conway

Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run against the Astros on Tuesday.

Is Trumbo finally finding a regular power stroke? He has three home runs in the last two games, albeit those are his only three hits, you can’t knock the fact that he has left the yard thrice. He has five RBI in his last two games and he looks like a solid DFS play while the home runs are here. Analysis: Colby Conway

Franklin Gutierrez went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk, three runs scored and one RBI on Tuesday against the Astros.

Gutierrez has homered three times in the last six games, scoring seven times and driving in seven runs in the process. If you scooped him up off waivers, kudos to you, seeing as he has performed well of late. He hit .339 in August and he will look to carry that momentum into September. Analysis: Colby Conway

Tom Wilhelmsen struck out one batter in the ninth of Tuesday’s contest with the Astros to earn save no. 7 on the season.

Since Aug. 23, Wilhelmsen has recorded five saves, allowing just three hits during that span. He has posted a 5:1 K/BB ratio in that same span and he seems to be a valuable source of saves down the stretch. The Mariners may not present him many opportunities, but he should be able to close the door when that chance arises. Analysis: Colby Conway

Roenis Elias allowed four earned runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four in 5 1/3 on Tuesday against the Astros.

After registering a quality start in his last outing, Elias was unable to replicate that sort of success tonight. He allowed nine base runners tonight, including four walks, his highest total since he faced the Astros in the middle of June. Elias’ ERA sits at 4.35 and he will try to lower that in his next outing. The southpaw will face the Texas Rangers on Monday in his next start. Analysis: Colby Conway

Rick Porcello went eight innings and struck out 13, but gave up three runs, one earned, on five innings on Tuesday to pick up the loss.

Two straight quality efforts for Porcello after his stint on the DL including a career-high in strikeouts. For his major contract, he has not lived up to the billing, but has shown at times, he has the stuff to be a front-end arm. Right now, he is missing consistency, something he can find in his last five starts of the season. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Brett Gardner went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Tuesday.

Gardner has hits in his last three games and four of five. If the Yankees are going to do any damage, they need the left-fielder to get hot again as he has drifted a bit back to Earth, seeing his OPS drop to .780 after a great start. His 13 home runs this season, almost out number his stolen bases of 18, a feat few thought could happen. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Andrew Miller struck out the side to close out the Yankees' 3-1 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Miller made quick work of the Red Sox, striking out all three men he faced and notching save No. 29 on the season. His numbers are crazy with an 0.82 WHIP and 1.90 ERA to go with 73 strikeouts in 47 1/3 innings. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Michael Pineda went six innings and surrendered just one run on four hits with seven strikeouts on Tuesday.

Pineda was dominant with seven strikeouts in six innings and picked up his tenth win in his second start off the DL. If he can limit the home run ball, his value increases dramatically as he has the ability to shut down offenses with a 1.21 WHIP and get strikeouts with an 8.9 K/9 this season. Analysis: Rob Trayah
