Saints' Manti Te'o: Four tackles in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o made four tackles (one solo) in Sunday's win against the Browns. He played 35 of the Saints' 62 defensive snaps.

Te'o continues to split time with A.J. Klein (48 snaps) and Alex Anzalone (23 snaps), though Klein appears to have surged to the top of linebacker committee in Week 2 after registering nine tackles. Still, barring injury, it remains difficult to predict how Klein, Te'o and Anzalone will be deployed on a weekly basis.

Falcons' Ricardo Allen: Collects first interception of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen recorded five tackles and an interception during Sunday's 31-24 win over the Panthers.

Allen secured a vital interception midway through the fourth quarter of Sunday's game to help put the game out of reach. After a pass deflected off of C.J. Anderson's hands, Allen made a leaping grab to get Atlanta the ball back with a two-possession lead midway through the fourth quarter. Though Drew Brees is yet to throw an interception for the Saints this season, Allen may get a shot at recording a pick for the second-straight week due to the pass-heavy nature of the Saints' attack. Brees has attempted at least 627 passes over nine of the past 11 years -- with an average of 13.3 interceptions per season during that span.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillips is not starting Tuesday against the Pirates.

Phillips missed 10 start with a shoulder issue before returning to the lineup as a designated hitter Sunday. He apparently remains unready to take the field so has sat Monday and Tuesday in a National League park. Jorge Bonifacio will be the Royals' right fielder.

Pirates' Kevin Newman: Situated on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Newman is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals.

Newman has started five of the last six games at shortstop, slashing .421/.400/.474 with three RBI over that stretch. He'll give way to Jordy Mercer up in the middle in this one, but the rookie is expected to see the lion's share of opportunities at shortstop down the stretch.
