News: Puig said he feels OK despite twisting his ankle on the final play of Saturday's game against the Giants, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

Puig went 0-for-4 but reached on a forceout in the ninth, then took it upon himself to attempt stealing second base, per Stephen, and was thrown out by Buster Posey to end the game. The Dodgers should have news on a clearer timetable for his availability before Sunday's contest starts.

Khris Davis
Athletics' Khris Davis: Clobbers 40th homer Saturday
Khris Davis, LF, OAK
9/23/2017
News: Davis hit his 40th home run of the season Saturday, a solo blast, during a 1-for-3 effort against the Rangers.

He pelted a laser to right-center field off Texas' Miguel Gonzalez to provide the only run in this surprising pitcher's duel. Davis' .241 batting average continues to hold him back for fantasy value, but even in a season packed with power, his stability in that category likely has helped many a fantasy title contender.

Tommy Pham
Cardinals' Tommy Pham: Homers, drives in three runs Saturday
Tommy Pham, LF, STL
9/23/2017
News: Pham went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Pirates.

His breakout season continues -- Pham has collected multiple hits in five of his last nine games, with three homers and four steals over that stretch, and is now batting .312/.411/.530 for the year. The 29-year-old is leading many fantasy owners to championships with his cross-category production.

Alex Gordon
Royals' Alex Gordon: Homers in win
Alex Gordon, LF, KC
9/23/2017
News: Gordon went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored during Saturday's win over the White Sox.

It's been a disastrous season for the veteran, but Gordon has found a groove over the final weeks of the season. He entered Saturday's game with a .281/.343/.500 slash line in September and is now up to four homers, eight RBI and 14 runs through 22 games this month.

Jay Bruce
Indians' Jay Bruce: Aiming for Sunday return
Jay Bruce, RF, CLE
9/23/2017
News: Bruce (heel) is hoping he can serve as designated hitter Sunday after being removed from Saturday's game, Zack Meisel of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

The outfielder was reportedly removed for precautionary reasons, and the fact Bruce already is setting up to play a day later is encouraging. His owners should check his lineup status Sunday.

Brett Phillips
Brewers' Brett Phillips: Collects three hits Saturday
Brett Phillips, CF, MIL
9/23/2017
News: Phillips went 3-for-4 and stole a base in Saturday's victory over the Cubs.

Phillips has earned himself playing time as the regular season has drawn to a close, and he is seemingly the Brewers' top center fielder against right-handed pitching at this point. Phillips has provided a boost for fantasy owners who have bought in, stealing four bases over nine games since Sept. 15.

Analysis: 

Teoscar Hernandez
Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Homers in second-consecutive game Saturday
Teoscar Hernandez, RF, TOR
9/23/2017
News: Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Yankees.

Hernandez blasted his fourth homer of the season to put the Blue Jays on the board in the third inning of a game they'd eventually lose. He's homered in back-to-back contests to bring his slugging percentage to .550, and he could be heating up as we enter the last week of the fantasy season.

Max Kepler
Twins' Max Kepler: Leaves with hip injury
Max Kepler, RF, MIN
9/23/2017
News: Kepler was removed from Saturday's game against the Tigers with a left hip injury, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kepler appeared to tweak something making a throw home in the first inning, and he was lifted in favor of Ehire Adrianza prior to his scheduled at-bat in the second frame. Expect Kepler's status to be updated further when more details regarding his injury are released.

Analysis: 

Curtis Granderson
Dodgers' Curtis Granderson: Out against southpaw
Curtis Granderson, LF, LAD
9/23/2017
News: Granderson is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

As per usual, Granderson will head to the bench with the opposition deploying a left-handed pitcher (Madison Bumgarner). In his place, Enrique Hernandez will start in left field and bat third.

Analysis: 

Boog Powell
Athletics' Boog Powell: Held out Saturday
Boog Powell, CF, OAK
9/23/2017
News: Powell (knee) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Powell's knee issue continues to linger, so he'll stick on the bench for sixth straight contest. A recent MRI came back negative, so as long as his swelling reduces in the coming days, he should be able to make it back before the season ends. That isn't a guarantee, though. In the meantime, Chad Pinder will continue to start in center field for the A's.
