Description: Panthers running back is currently the team\'s starting tailback, according to coach Ron Rivera.
Insight: With Deangelo Williams and Mike Tolbert out for an extended period of time, combined with Jonathan Stewart (knee) working his way back, Reaves shoul be in line for some carries. However, Carolina will most likely use a committee, moving forward. Reaves will be be RB3 this week.
Description: Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer is seeking a second opinion on his shoulder.
Insight: Good news came out yesterday about Palmer throwing, as the nerve issue is in his throwing shoulder. However, things are certainly not right with him, and he should be considered extremely questionable to start Sunday at Denver. Drew Stanton will continue to fill in for the undefeated Cardinals.
Description: Angels right-hander Jered Weaver will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Royals.
Insight: He will be opposed by Jason Vargas. According to manager Mike Scioscia, Weaver will also start a potential Game 4 on short rest. Matt Shoemaker will start Game 2 and C.J. Wilson will take the hill for Game 3.
Description: Mavericks guard Jameer Nelson looks like he has a slight edge over Raymond Felton and Devin Harris for the starting point guard role according to ESPN Dallas.

Description: Pacers\' Solomon Hill joined George Hill, Rodney Stuckley, David West and Roy Hibbert on the floor for a portion of Tuesday\'s practice according to Scott Agness of VigilantSports.com.
Insight: The biggest reason for why Hill was out with the starters in practice Tuesday is probably because C.J. Miles was out with a calf injury. Hill does have sleeper potential as he shot 39 percent from 3-point land the last two years at Arizona, but he is still only fantasy relavant in very deep leagues.

Description: Chicago left wing Patrick Sharp will look to build off a career-best year.
Insight: He had 78 points (34 goals, 44 assists) in 2013-14, and just like most members on the Blackhawks, should be able to produce similar numbers. Sharp should be taken no later than the third round.
