Fantasy Player Updates & News  All You Need to Make Winning Lineups!

Craig Kimbrel gave up a walk but escaped with a scoreless ninth inning to earn his 42nd save of the season for the Braves on Wednesday. 

Kimbrel continues to prove why he is one of the best in his business. While he has not been as dominant this year than in others, his stats still point to an elite closer. Kimbrel is a #1 closing option and should be started in every league.ANALYST: Colby Conway

Paulo Orlando went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run against the Tigers on Thursday.

Orlando has six bombs over 201 at-bats. Still, even hitting for the Royals he is of no fantasy value. He doesn't get enough at-bats, and is not productive enough, to warrant any fantasy consideration. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Kendrys Morales went 4-for-5 with a double, four RBI and three runs scored against the Tigers on Thursday.

Morales is one of the best DHs in the league. That was already obvious before tonight, but he increased his line to .293/.358/.476 with his impressive performance tonight. Morales is a must-start regardless of the circumstances.  Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Ben Zobrist went 4-for-6 with two RBI and three runs scored against the Tigers on Thursday.

Zobrist has been fantastic, as expected, since coming over from the Rays. He holds a .291/.378/.473 line with 11 homers and 50 RBI on the season and is a must-start with the Royals. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, three runs scored and one walk against the Tigers on Thursday.

Cain is the best player on the best team in the AL. He is an obvious must-start and tonight's fantastic performance is just further proof of that. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Nick Castellanos went 3-for-4 with two doubles, three, RBI, one run scored and one walk against the Royals on Thursday.

Castellanos has struck out a lot this year (122:37 K/BB ratio), and still only hits .252. He has 15 bombs this year, but hitting for the awful Tigers lowers his value inherently. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Anthony Gose went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and one walk against the Royals on Thursday.

Gose doesn't hold much value hitting leadoff for the putrid Tigers. He only has five homers and is hitting just .256--an awful number for a leadoff hitter. Do not look to Gose for any fantasy value as of now. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
