BRONCOS: Incumbent Devontae Booker had just two carries in Denver’s preseason opener while rookie Royce Freeman ripped off a nifty 23-yard touchdown run. Booker should see more touches Sunday against the Bears Christian Miller Jersey , but Freeman is gaining momentum and should overtake Booker as the Broncos‘ lead back. Consider Freeman in the middle portion of the draft, especially in point-per-reception (PPR) leagues.EAGLES: LeGarrette Blount’s departure to the Lions opens the door to a host of touches near the goal line. Jay Ajayi will be a huge sleeper if Philly entrusts him with the bulk of the red zone touches, but Super Bowl hero Corey Clement will be a factor as well. How the Eagles plan on using Darren Sproles could snatch touches from both, as this sets up to be an annoying committee situation.JETS: Bilal Powell could be a late-round sleeper as he places an iron grip on the starting job. Powell opened camp in a battle with Isaiah Crowell, but Crowell suffered a concussion in the exhibition opener against the Falcons, giving Powell — who has 128 catches over the past three seasons despite starting only 16 games — his best opportunity to become a lead back.TITANS: Expect a timeshare with Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis, with Lewis being the better choice in PPR leagues. Henry’s physical style of running makes him a good play in non-PPR formats, but both will have their red zone touches limited by the presence of quarterback Marcus Mariota and tight end Delanie Walker.REDSKINS: With Derrius Guice lost for the season, Rob Kelley tops the depth chart for now, but second-year back Samaje Perine will push him. Neither factor in PPR formats, as Chris Thompson should be ready to go after breaking his fibula in Week 11 last season. Thompson will be the pass-catching back. If he regains his speed, fantasy owners should be confident in grabbing him in the middle rounds.SAVE MEFor a variety of reasons Jordan Scarlett Jersey , there are an abundance of saves available for fantasy baseball owners to nab off waiver wires. Pedro Strop of the Cubs will be the team’s ninth inning stopper while Brandon Morrow remains on the disabled list, while the Nationals are turning to hard-throwing youngster Koda Glover after the loss of Sean Doolittle and Kelvin Herrera. A.J. Minter hammered down his 11th save on Wednesday and will hold the Braves‘ role of closer even when Atlanta gets Arodys Vizcaino returns from the DL at month’s end.The situation to watch is with the Dodgers, as Sean Alexander has faltered in replacing injured All-Star Kenley Jansen. Kenta Maeda could get a look the role, with Caleb Ferguson and J.T. Chargois also factoring in the process.JAZZ FOR THOSE MOVIN’ ON UPLook for Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell to become a top-20 caliber fantasy player this season. Projected as a fourth or fifth round pick in early draft rankings, Mitchell’s impressive postseason run will be a precursor to a leap toward superstardom.Mitchell averaged 24.4 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.2 assists in 11 playoff games in his rookie season. Heading into his second year, Mitchell, who also shot nearly 91 percent from the free throw line in the playoffs, is only lacking an improved 3-point shot from emerging as a value pick if selected outside the top 30. Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton gave New York a scare with an awkward fall in right field. An inning later, he showed everyone in the Bronx that he was just fine.

Stanton, Aaron Hicks and Kyle Higashioka each homered and New York went ahead early and hung on to beat the Atlanta Braves 8-5 on Tuesday night.

Stanton was shaken up after crashing into the right field wall chasing after Nick Markakis‘ seventh-inning home run. He knocked padding off the base of the wall, and the team’s training staff ran out to check on New York’s prized offseason acquisition a pitch later. Stanton remained in the game David Montgomery Jersey , made a leaping catch later in the inning, then slugged his 20th home run of the season in the eighth.

”That’s par for the course, that’s baseball,” Stanton said. ”If you get subbed in, you usually get the ball the first time, so, something like that happens, expect it.”

Stanton’s homer gave New York some breathing room after the Braves crept on its early lead. His two-run shot off Evan Phillips made him the 11th player to reach 20 homers in each of his first nine major league seasons. Phillips was making his major league debut.

New York is a major league-best 32-13 at home. The Yankees improved to a majors-best 21-6 against left-handed starters and remain a game behind Boston for the best record in baseball.

Aaron Judge had two hits and a walk, and he stole two bases for the first time in his career. Hicks also walked twice as New York drew eight free passes.

Markakis and Ender Inciarte each hit two-run homers for Atlanta, which ended a four-game winning streak. The Braves remain atop the NL East but fell behind the Brewers for the best record in the NL.

A night after Atlanta rookie Ronald Acuna Jr. barely cleared the wall to give Atlanta an 11-inning victory, the Yankees took advantage of their cozy stadium.

Hicks continued his home run binge by hitting Sean Newcomb’s 95 mph fastball two rows into the right field stands for his 15th of the season and a 2-0 lead in the first. Hicks has hit nine home runs in his last 17 games.

”He’s put together a really good season for us and right now, he’s at a really Riley Ridley Jersey , really good place in the batter’s box,” Boone said.

Newcomb (8-3) stood on the mound shaking his head after the ball carried over the fence. The left-hander allowed five runs in 2 2/3 innings in the shortest start of his career. Newcomb had posted three straight quality starts but threw a career-high 111 pitches his last time out.

”Balls kind of get sucked up out there, so that’s frustrating,” he said.

New York scored twice in the third without a hit. Newcomb walked the bases loaded, then walked Brandon Drury to force in a run. Luke Jackson relieved, but he walked Higashioka for another run. Newcomb’s five walks matched a career high.

”He was just having a hard time controlling everything,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said.

Staked with a six-run cushion, Yankees starter Domingo German tired in the fifth. After Johan Camargo walked, Inciarte crushed a curveball into the stands for his sixth of the season.

Rookie Ozzie Albies homered on the next pitch to draw Atlanta within three. Freddie Freeman and Markakis hit consecutive singles to end German’s night. Atlanta hit back-to-back homers for just the third time this season.

A.J. Cole, reinstated off the disabled list earlier in the day, struck out Tyler Flowers with the bases loaded to end the threat. Since being acquired from Washington on April 23, Cole (2-0) has allowed one earned run in 14 2/3 innings.

In the eighth Greedy Williams Jersey , Chasen Shreve relieved with runners on first and second and one out and retired Inciarte and Albies to preserve a one-run lead.

Aroldis Chapman threw a scoreless ninth for his 23rd save. The hard-throwing closer was used in three straight games for the first time this season.


Eight-year old Hailey Dawson threw out the ceremonial first pitch with her 3D printed hand created by students at UNLV. Dawson was born with Poland Syndrome, a rare birth defect that left the youngster without the three middle fingers on her right hand. She has been on a quest to throw a first pitch for each MLB team.


Higashioka became the third player in franchise history to homer for his first two big league hits, joining Alfonso Soriano (1999-2000) and Joe Lefebvre (1980).


Yankees: INF Gleyber Torres (right hip stiffness) was held out of the starting lineup. The sensational rookie ”stiffened up” Monday night, according to manager Aaron Boone, but entered as a defensive replacement in the eighth. … RHP Masahiro Tanaka remains scheduled for a rehab start with Triple-A Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday. Boone is hopeful Tanaka will throw between 65 and 75 pitches. … C Austin Romine (left hamstring) was held out of the starting lineup for a third straight night


LHP CC Sabathia (5-3, 3.02 ERA) pitches the series finale for New York. Sabathia allowed just seven earned runs over five starts in June (1.93 ERA) and is 3-1 in four starts against Atlanta. He’s opposed by Julio Teheran (6-5, 4.21 ERA), who gave up eight runs in 4 1/3 innings in his only appearance against New York on Aug, 30, 2015.
