out threw the ball really well, but weve still got to put the ball in play better than we did the last couple of days, and that really affected the outcomes | Forum

Consider yourself lucky if your fantasy teams werent affected by the plethora of NFL injuries this week.Even if you escaped unscathed, you should still work the waiver wire to try to improve your roster. Injuries will continue to happen and depth is key.This will be a busy week to acquire free agents.---RYAN TANNEHILL (QB, Dolphins)Tannehill is a quarterback to stream in Week 3. He passed for 389 yards, two touchdowns and rushed for 35 yards against the Patriots in Week 2. The Browns have allowed 580 passing yards and four touchdowns the first two games to Carson Wentz and Joe Flacco.---JERRICK MCKINNON AND MATT ASIATA (RBs, Vikings)Adrian Peterson has a torn meniscus and its not clear how much time he will miss. McKinnon has been limited by a back injury early on. Hes the more explosive back and could get more touches than Asiata. McKinnon will be better in point-per-reception formats, but Asiata will get goal line touches and he will be cheaper in leagues with free agent acquisition budgets.---DWAYNE WASHINGTON (RB, Lions)Ameer Abdullah has a foot injury and while Theo Riddick will get a boost and most of the action in the passing game, Washington will see more touches. Washington has six carries for 32 yards with a touchdown and should be used near the goal line.---FOZZY WHITTAKER AND CAMERON ARTIS-PAYNE (RBs, Panthers)Jonathan Stewart is going to miss time with a hamstring injury. Whittaker had 16 carries for 100 yards and caught three passes for 31 yards in Week 2. Artis-Payne has been inactive the first two games since he doesnt play special teams, but coach Ron Rivera said he will play. Whittaker is the preferred play in point-per-reception leagues, but Stewart might only miss one week or two. Artis-Payne received 33 carries in three games that Stewart missed last season.---JAY AJAYI (RB, Dolphins)Dont go crazy over Ajayi. This is for deeper leagues. The Dolphins will struggle to run the ball. Arian Foster has a groin injury and could miss time. Ajayi was left behind in Miami in Week 1 and he fumbled in Week 2. The coaching staff doesnt love him, but he will get volume if Foster is sidelined. Kenyan Drake will be in the mix, too. Damien Williams and Isaiah Pead could be active as well. So yes, this is a mess.---JORDAN HOWARD (RB, Bears)Jeremy Langford has struggled and fumbled Monday night. KaDeem Carey has a hamstring injury and Howard may get more involved in the offense.---COLE BEASLEY (WR, Cowboys)Beasley has become a dependable piece of the offense, especially with Terrance Williams being phased out. Beasley caught five passes for 75 yards on six targets after he had eight catches for 65 yards on 12 targets in Week 1.---JAMISON CROWDER (WR, Redskins)Crowder is a big part of a Redskins offense that is heavy on the pass. He had six catches for 39 yards with a touchdown and was wide open for another score, but Kirk Cousins overthrew him. Crowder has 12 catches on 18 targets and five red zone targets.---VICTOR CRUZ (WR, Giants)Cruz has looked good and made a tough catch with a defender on him late in the game to set up the winning field goal against the Saints on Sunday. He had eight targets and caught four passes for 91 yards. The Giants employ a lot of three-wide sets and Cruz played all but five snaps in Week 2.---QUINCY ENUNWA (WR, Jets)Enunwa is basically the tight end in this offense since the Jets dont have one they utilize in the passing game. Even with Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Matt Forte, there is room for Enunwa to succeed. He has caught 13 of 14 targets for 146 yards with a touchdown.---TYRELL WILLIAMS (WR, Chargers)In case you missed him last week, Williams could see more targets with Danny Woodhead out for the season. Williams had three catches for 61 yards, including a 44-yard TD in Week 2.---JESSE JAMES (TE, Steelers)James, who has played every snap, had three catches for 29 yards with a touchdown on five targets. He had seven targets in Week 1 and Ben Roethlisberger likes to target the tight end in the red zone.---DENNIS PITTA (TE, Ravens)With injuries and several disappointments at tight end, Pitta needs to be added. Pitta, who missed 2015 and played three games in 2014, led the Ravens with 12 targets and caught nine passes for 102 yards.---JACOB TAMME (TE, Falcons)Tamme had eight targets for the second straight game. He has 11 catches for 126 yards with a TD.---This column was provided to The Associated Press by the Fantasy Sports Network, http://FNTSY.com .

PETERSBURG, Fla. - Matt Moore pitched like an All-Star on the day he became one. Moore won his 13th game this season, Luke Scott and Evan Longoria hit back-to-back homers, and the surging Tampa Bay Rays completed a four-game sweep by beating the Minnesota Twins 4-3 on Thursday. "Truly an All-Star performance," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "This is like wrapping it all into a nice little package." Moore (13-3), who was added to the AL All-Star team Thursday after initially being left off, gave up three runs, three hits, two walks and had 10 strikeouts over 7 1-3 innings in winning his fifth straight start and setting a team record for victories before the All-Star break. "It means a lot," Moore said. "Im ecstatic about being part of the festivities and being at the game with the best players in the game." Moore said the best part came after talking about his All-Star addition in Maddons office. "Opened up the door and everybody was waiting there with waters and beers to celebrate," Moore said. Moore is taking the spot of Texas right-hander Yu Darvish, who went on the disabled list this week due to a strained trapezius muscle. Two of the runs charged to Moore scored when reliever Alex Torres gave up a two-run single in the eighth to Joe Mauer that cut the Twins deficit to 4-3. Jake McGee got his first save pitching a scoreless ninth. Scott and Longoria hit solo shots in a span of three pitches off Mike Pelfrey (4-7) as the Rays took a 3-1 lead in the sixth. Longoria, bothered recently by plantar fasciitis, stopped a career-high stretch of 14 games without an extra base hit. Rookie Wil Myers had three hits and two RBIs for Tampa Bay, which climbed to a season-best 13 games over .500 with its eighth straight victory. The second-place Rays also improved to 10-1 during a stretch of 14 consecutive games against the Twins, Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros — teams with the three worst records in the American League. "Its been pretty special," Maddon said. "Its simple, age-tested formula. We pitched well, we caught it and got some clutch hits. Theres a lot of belief within the group.dddddddddddd" Pelfrey allowed three runs and eight hits in six innings. The Twins have has lost 11 of 12, including five straight. Brian Dozier got the Twins first hit off Moore when he lined a double with two outs in the sixth down the left-field line that just got past the reach of Longoria at third base. Dozier then scored to tie it at 1 on Jamey Carrolls run-scoring single. The run ended Moores scoreless streak at 22 1-3 innings. The Twins struck out six times and had only one well hit ball, a third-inning fly near the warning track in centre by Aaron Hicks through five innings. The lone baserunner during the stretch came when Mauer drew a two-out walk in the fourth. "Thats a heck of a pitching staff over there," Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Moore was really good with filthy stuff and all the guys they brought out threw the ball really well, but weve still got to put the ball in play better than we did the last couple of days, and that really affected the outcomes of games." The Twins struck out 19 times in Wednesday nights 4-3, 13-inning loss. Tampa Bay took a 1-0 lead on Myers broken-bat RBI single in the third. Myers extended the lead to 4-1 with a seventh-inning run-scoring single. The teams started the series finale just over 12 hours after Wednesday nights 4-hour, 47-minute marathon. A number of regulars, including Tampa Bays Ben Zobrist, Desmond Jennings and Yunel Escobar, along with Minnesotas Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit were not in the starting lineups. Gardenhire said Morneau was sore after playing in Wednesday nights game, but was available off the bench. NOTES: Rays RHP Alex Cobb, struck in the right ear by a liner hit by Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer on June 15, underwent a concussion test Wednesday and feels the results will be positive. He could throw batting practice for the first since getting hurt Sunday. ... The Twins placed LHP Caleb Thielbar on the bereavement list and recalled RHP Michael Tonkin from Triple-A Rochester. It was annouced Tuesday that Thielbar would be leaving the team following the death of his grandmother. ' ' '
