FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Jason Heyward opened up the game with his eleventh home run of the season and the Braves went on to beat the Mets 3-2 on Wednesday. 

Heyward is now slashing .314/.365/.419 with two home runs and 11 RBI in the month of August as he continues to find success hitting atop the Braves lineup. Although he has yet to live up to his MVP-type hype, Heyward remains a must-start in all but the shallowest of fantasy formats while providing decent production across the board down the stretch.
