White Sox | More on Matt Lindstrom

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 07:44:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago White Sox RP Matt Lindstrom (ankle) threw all four of his pitches in his bullpen session Saturday, July 12.

FANTASY TIP: Lindstrom remains a good bet to be in the closer mix when he returns and should be stashed if you have DL space.

Lions | Matthew Stafford working hard

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 07:38:54 -0700

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford impressed backup QB Dan Orlovsky with his work ethic this offseason in learning the new offense. Stafford spent his own time going over the offense with the new staff this offseason. "There was so much uncertainty, just trying to figure out how we'd run this offense," Stafford said. "I just wanted to make sure that once we started playing and practicing, I was as well equipped and well prepared as I could be."

FANTASY TIP: It appears Stafford gets it. While this may not translate into much as far as his production goes, the fact that he isn't resting on his laurels bodes well for his progression into his prime years. Stafford remains a solid fantasy QB1.
