"It's leading up to San Francisco [on Sept. 7 for the season opener]. I am going to play in the preseason, obviously. I think it's important. The first game, we'll talk about it as we move into the weekend."

FANTASY TIP: It would not be a surprise to see Romo sit out early in the preseason as he continues to work his way back to top form. The team has been very cautious to this point with their quarterback.

Red Sox | Acquire Allen Craig, Joe Kelly

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:41:57 -0700

The Boston Red Sox acquired OF Allen Craig and SP Joe Kelly from the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, July 31, in exchange for SP John Lackey.

FANTASY TIP: Well then. Craig has been a former shell of himself this year, but the move to Boston could spark a turnaround in a more hitter-friendly environment. He'll also see more consistent playing time in Beantown. Kelly hasn't excited since his return from the DL, and he won't be any more intriguing with the move to the AL East.

Back in St. Louis, the departure of Craig opens up everyday PT for Oscar Taveras. Everyday at-bats should be good for the youngster, and it could elevate his play to levels that we've expected of him. He should be owned everywhere now.

Jaguars | Allen Robinson has hamstring injury

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:37:54 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, July 31, as he deals with a hamstring injury.

FANTASY TIP: Robinson was having a nice camp before the injury. Hamstring injuries have a tendency to linger, so this is something that will need to be watched in the next few days. Check back when there is more information on the prognosis of the injury.

Cardinals | Acquire John Lackey

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:36:22 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals have acquired SP John Lackey from the Boston Red Sox. It is not known what the Red Sox will receive in return.

FANTASY TIP: The addition of Lackey may mean that Michael Wacha (shoulder) may not be ready when the team hoped, and the team may prefer Carlos Martinez in the bullpen. Lackey should see some value increase because of his move to the National League. Owners in NL-only leagues can look to add him off waivers when they can.

Orioles | In on Andrew Miller

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:35:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Andrew Miller has a suitor in the Baltimore Orioles.
