Ryan was spotted on the sideline favoring that left thumb, so it will be interesting to see how it affects him the rest of the way. He'll likely just be giving way to Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman for the rest of this outing.
If Washington wants to do anything this October, they are going to need to have Harper in the lineup. While they will likely rest that thumb the next couple days, it would be reassuring to get him in the lineup for a game or two before the end of the season.
Wade, the aging superstar, needs his minutes monitored. Chicago has big expectations for the season and it's extremely important to have Wade healthy for later in the season, not the first 10 games of the season. He's going to be on a minutes restriction in an effort to have a completely healthy Wade for a potential playoff run.
Benoit looked good in his appearance last night, but he's currently being evaluated for this calf injury. He's been a quality setup man for Toronto this season, so they are desperately hoping that Benoit doesn't have to miss time with this calf injury. Consider him day-to-day.
Travis' batting average has slipped since going 0-for-11 in his last three games. Travis has been a valuable fantasy asset since his return from injury, hitting 10 home runs, driving in 49 and swiping four bases. Hopefully he can return tomorrow to help your team win a fantasy title.
This is a tough blow for the Atlanta offense, because Sanu is the team's No. 2 wide receiver. Taylor Gabriel will likely see some more targets, along with tight end Jacob Tamme. Sanu will need to shake off this shoulder injury if he wants to be productive for owners in the near future.
Cruz was in the lineup tonight despite his sore left wrist. In an effort to stay in the lineup, he has decided to cut back on his pre-game batting practice to alleviate pressure on his wrist. As long as the soreness doesn't flare up, he should be able to play the rest of the season.
Eaton has missed the last three games with a hip issue, but he expects to get out there tomorrow. He injured his slamming into the outfield wall on Friday and the soreness is what has kept him out of the lineup. For the season, he's hitting .283 with 14 home runs, 58 RBI, 85 runs scored and 12 stolen bases.
Leonard was limited to just 61 games last season, averaging 21 minutes during his time out there.The 7-foot-1 center averaged eight points and five rebounds per contest, but for being that tall, he doesn't record as many blocks as one would like. He's a low-end option at the center position this season.
Sanu had a plus matchup in this one against an abysmal New Orleans defense, so hopefully he is able to return for this Monday Night Football contest. Sanu had three receptions for 31 yards before exiting this game. Consider him questionable to return.
