Falcons | Julio Jones ready for camp

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:11:40 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (foot) will be ready for the start of training camp, as expected, but will be limited.

FANTASY TIP: This is definitely good news for a top-tier fantasy wide receiver. Jones will likely take it easy throughout training camp and the preseason as he continues to heal. When healthy, Jones has top-five WR potential in standard leagues.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:07:31 -0700

Atlanta Falcons DT Corey Peters (Achilles') and SS Zeke Motta (neck) were placed on the physically unable to perform list.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 15:01:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki (hip) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, with a strained hip flexor.

FANTASY TIP: Fantasy owners should have been prepared for this. Tulowitzki has missed the past two games and has missed substantial stretches in each of the past five seasons. Josh Rutledge is worth a look in the majority of formats.

Braves | Manager talks lineup order

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 14:53:26 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Tommy La Stella is manager Fredi Gonzalez's preferred No. 2 hitter, as opposed to SS Andrelton Simmons.

FANTASY TIP: La Stella's run-scoring potential is higher hitting in the two spot, increasing his fantasy value. Simmons struggles to get on base, so he is better suited lower in the order, where he'll see more RBI opportunities.

Indians | Asdrubal Cabrera wearing back brace

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 14:46:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) was wearing a back brace and walking gingerly Tuesday, July 22. Cabrera said if he is still in pain Wednesday, July 23, he would get a MRI or X-ray.

FANTASY TIP: It could be time to surf your waiver wire for potential shortstop replacements, at least for the short-term. Mike Aviles' value would increase significantly, if Cabrera misses time.
