Rams' Sam Shields: Interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields recorded one tackle, a pass defensed and an interception across 11 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Shields didn't see a ton of action Sunday but made the most of his opportunities, recording his first interception since 2015. The veteran cornerback got snaps with the game out of hand after not receiving a single defensive rep in Week 1. However, after the impressive interception which he returned 22 yards, Shields could be inclined to see some more regular playing time in the future.

Maple Leafs' Curtis McElhinney: Bounces back after early goal against
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McElhinney gave up one goal on 13 shots before giving way to Garret Sparks in Tuesday's 4-1 preseason win over the Senators.

McElhinney was beaten by Ryan Dzingel just 21 seconds in, but he recovered nicely after that. While Sparks stopped all 22 shots he faced, McElhinney still has the inside track to earn Toronto's backup job behind Frederik Andersen.

Lions' Devon Kennard: Two sacks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennard recorded four tackles (three solo) and two sacks across 64 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Kennard continues to impress amongst an otherwise dismal Detroit defense, as the former-Giant has now logged three sacks on the season. He played in 100 percent of the defensive snaps and will likely continue to see a heavy workload as long as the high production comes with it.

Lions' Christian Jones: Major uptick in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded six tackles (five solo) and a sack across 59 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

After being limited to only 27 defensive snaps in the season-opener, Jones saw a major uptick in action Sunday. The linebacker played 92 percent of the Lions' defensive snaps as a starter and tied Jarrad Davis for the lead in tackles. After a strong outing on an otherwise disappointing day, Jones has a good chance of seeing a similar workload Sunday night against the Patriots.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: No decision in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed two hits and two walks over six shutout innings during Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Red Sox. He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

Eovaldi pitched fantastic against the Yankees but was pulled at 83 pitches (52 strikes), only for the bullpen to allow three runs during the seventh inning. The 28-year-old worked beyond the fourth inning for the first time since Aug. 21 and now has a 3.98 ERA and 1.15 WHIP this season.
