Description: Chargers backup tight end Ladarius Green is going to get his chance to show he\'s fantasy worthy this season as he\'s the expected starter for the first four games with Antonio Gates suspended.
Insight: Green was expected to start the transition from aging Antonio Gates last season but didn\'t show fantasy owners he was ready. With Gates suspended for the first four games, it\'s time to show what he\'s got what it takes to be a TE1.
Description: Chargers tight end Antonio Gates wanted to play fewer plays this season, but we don\'t think he meant being suspended for the first four games of the season.
Insight: Gates finished last season with 69 catches, 821 yards and 12 touchdowns, his best season since 2010. LaDarius Green will certainly have to be ready to step up for the start of the 2015 season.
Description: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer isa career .346 hitter (9-for-26) with three homers against Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie.
Insight: For a non-home run hitter like Mauer, three homers is the most he has off any pitcher (tied with Justin Verlander and Gavin Floyd). He is hitting .266 with four home runs and 39 RBI this season.
Description: Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is not a good play on Friday versus the White Sox.
Insight: Jones is an ugly 1-for-30 (.033) with seven strikeouts against White Sox starter John Danks. He is hitting .292 with 10 home runs and 37 RBI this season. He\'s also been homerless since June 11.
