 Matt Ryan, QB, ATL9/30/2014 3:41:00 PM 
Description: It will take a brave fantasy owner to start Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan in Week 5 as all the indicators point downward. Insight: Ryan has thrown five interceptions in two road games this year after throwing 14 on the road (versus three at home) last season. And on Tuesday 40 percent of his starting offensive line was placed on injured reserve (RT Lamar Holmes and C Joe Hawley). That\'s going to be a lot to overcome.
 Teddy Bridgewater, QB, MIN9/30/2014 3:36:00 PM 
Description: Vikings rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) did not practice Tuesday. Insight: Bridgewater hopes to at least be part of tomorrow\'s walk-through on this short work week. He did everything fantasy owners could have hoped for in his debut start, throwing for 317 yards and rushing for a touchdown in leading Minnesota to a win. The Vikings play Thursday at Green Bay.

 Michael Morse, LF, SFG9/30/2014 8:46:00 PM 
Description: Giants left fielder Michael Morse is likely to be left off the National League Wild Card roster on Wednesday due to a strained left oblique according to Mercury News. Insight: There was a previous possibility of him being on the roster as a potential pinch-hitter, but that seems unlikely at this point. Even if the Giants advance, Morse doesn\'t look like he will be much of a factor this October.
 Josh Hamilton, LF, ANA9/30/2014 8:40:00 PM 
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton (shoulder) told Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register that he is ready to play in the ALDS which starts on Thursday. Insight: Hamilton took batting practice, threw long toss, and ran the bases without any setbacks the last two days. He has played just one game since Sept. 4, but the Angels will likely put him in the lineup on Thursday.

 Kobe Bryant, G, LAL9/29/2014 10:22:00 PM 
Description: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant expects to play in the team\'s preseason opener on Oct. 6 after recovering from a fractured lateral tibial plateau in his left knee according to Yahoo Sports. Insight: Los Angeles still expects Bryant to average 23 points per game. Head coach Bryon Scott said he expects Bryant to be healthy all 82 games, and if that happens, Bryant could be a fantasy steal based on where he will be picked this year.
 Paul George, SF, IND9/29/2014 10:01:00 PM 
Description: Pacers forward Paul George said he is hoping to return for the playoffs as long as Indiana makes it according to NBA.com. Insight: George fractured his leg while playing for Team USA on Aug. 1. He was walking around without a walking boot on Monday, which is encouraging, but it is still very unlikely he plays at all this year. Do not draft him in any fantasy leagues.

 Carl Hagelin, LW, NYR9/30/2014 8:15:00 PM 
Description: Rangers winger Carl Hagelin will top last year\'s 15 goals and 16 assists numbers. Insight: We expect a lot from Hagelin, who is one of the fastest players in the NHL. There is a chance that he will play with Mats Zuccarello and Derick Brassard this year. If that happens, we like the combination of Haelin\'s speed and Zuccarello\'s grittiness to score a bunch of goals.
 Mats Zuccarello, LW, NYR9/30/2014 8:11:00 PM 
Description: Rangers left wing Mats Zuccarello had a breakout season last year, so now fans are wondering if he can repeat that success. Insight: Zuccarello scored 19 goals and had 40 assists playing with Benoit Pouliot and Derick Brassard last season. He will again play with Brassard, but Pouliot left via free agency. The pair will likely be a part of the Rangers second line, but stay tuned because they could also end up in a checking-line role. Either way, Zuccarello is worth stashing on your team.
