Description: White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is not in Tuesday\'s starting lineup.
Insight: It appears to be just a routine night off for the slugger. He\'s on an 11-game hitting streak and has raised his average to .320 to go along with 33 HR, 99 RBI and a .983 OPS. That\'s got to get him in the conversation for MVP.
Description: Milwaukee removed center fielder Carlos Gomez in the third inning of Sunday\'s game against the Giants due to a sore left wrist and again not in the starting lineup for Tuesday\'s game against the Chicago Cubs.
Insight: Gomez was not lighting it up before the injury anyway, going hitless in his last five games. Gerardo Parra will replace him.
Description: Jaguars rookie receiver Allen Robinson (hamstring) was limited in Monday\'s practice, but says he\'ll be ready for Sunday against the Eagles, according to Jags beat writer Ryan O\'Halloran.
Insight: Allen is behind fellow rookie Marqise Lee, Cecil Shorts and free agent Allen Hurns which means his fantasy value is minimal. He\'ll eventually jump past Hurns and grab the No. 3 receiver role.
Description: Buffalo rookie receiver Sammy Watkins (rib injury) was on the practice field Monday.
Insight: Watkins has suffered two rib injuries during training camp and the preseason. Its a bit of a concern that he\'s not getting better, but of more concern to fantasy owners is the abysmal play of E.J. Manuel which limits Watkins\' upside.
Description: Philadelphia point guard Michael Carter-Williams (shoulder surgery) has not yet been cleared for five-on-five workouts with contact, according to 76ers GM Sam Hinkie.
Insight: Carter-Williams had surgery over the offseason to repair his left shoulder. He missed 12 games his rookie season, but won the Rookie of the Year with averages of 16.7 points, 0.8 3-pointers, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game. If he can stay healthy, he should be a reliable point guard option especially in leagues that have no penalty for turnovers.
Description: The Timberwolves have acquired Thaddeus Young as part of a three-team trade with Cleveland and Philadelphia.
Insight: Minnesota did a good job to get Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Young for Kevin Love, who made it known that he was leaving in free agency anyway. Young was an underrated fantasy option last season, averaging 17.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 threes, 2.1 steals (third in the NBA) and 0.5 blocks per game. He\'ll start for the \'Wolves and should be the top offensive option as the team tries to replace Love\'s 26.1 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.
Description: Left wing Clarke MacArthur and the Senators have come to terms on a five-year extension.
Insight: MacArthur went on to tell the Ottawa Sun that he will not change the way he plays the game. "Just because I\'ve got a five-year deal, that doesn\'t mean I need to change a whole lot. I kind of want to play the same game. I want to play good in both ends." MacArthur had 24 goals and 31 assists in his first season in Ottawa last year.
