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 then they can.

Athletics | Jonny Gomes, Sam Fuld could platoon

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:11:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics OFs Jonny Gomes and Sam Fuld could serve in a platoon in left field to replace OF Yoenis Cespedes, who was traded to the Boston Red Sox. Fuld also gives the A's a solid defensive outfielder.

FANTASY TIP: Gomes is clearly the better offensive weapon and fantasy option, but the move to Oakland in a pitcher friendly environment takes some of the intrigue out of his bat. In a platoon role with Fuld, he's purely AL-only material.

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:07:34 -0700
