A.J. Burnett allowed one earned run on three hits while walking one and striking out 12 in the Phillies 3-2 win against the Nationals on Monday.
It was Burnett's best outing in more than a month, which is significant because AJ cleared waivers earlier month and should he show signs of life, could be moved to a contender for the stretch run. It's been a poor season for the veteran righty, who sports a 4.30 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, his worst numbers since moving to the National League in 2012. He's expecting to retire at the end of the season. ANALYST:
Charcandrick West will not practice Wednesday.
West is still recovering from the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 11 and could be in danger of missing this week's match-up with the Bills. He'll probably be listed as questionable but check the practice reports Friday to see how he fares. If he doesn't play, then Spencer Ware seems like the logical choice. However, the Chiefs also have Knile Davis, who could see some touches as well if he is active. Analysis: Howard Bender
Philly Brown is questionable for Thursday's game.
It is a good sign that Corey "Philly" Brown was a participant at all in practice on Tuesday but Coach Ron Rivera does not seem as optimistic about his return on Thursday against the Cowboys. Brown continues to nurse a shoulder injury. Even if Brown is able to play, he should not be started or even owned in most all fantasy league formats. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Frank Gore (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.
Frank Gore is now 32 years old and his body has taken a beating over the years. He suffered a knee/quad injury early during the Colts win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. There were repots that he had a noticeable limp on the sideline. Indianapolis will play safe with their veteran running back by limiting his snaps in practice. We should see him in Week 12 against the Buccaneers. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Victor Oladipo will come off the bench Wednesday.
After the Magic's loss on Monday night to the Cavaliers, Head Coach Scott Skiles said that it's "time to change the lineup." We have seen Oladipo benched multiple times in the past week, and it looks like Elfrid Payton will stay in the starting lineup while Oladipo moves to the second unit because they're not playing well off each other right now. If you own him, don't go freaking out just yet and don't make the mistake of selling him at a low value right now. Lets see how this all shakes out. Analysis: Drew Phelps
