7 hours agoMilwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe (shin) is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. He's dealing with a right shin contusion, but this should be only a one game absence. George Hill is expected to jump into the starting five, while Sterling Brown and Donte Divincenzo get extended minutes. Hill could be worth a look as a cheap DFS option without Bledsoe available.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

7 hours agoOrlando Magic center Nikola Vucevic (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. It sounds like his ankle is feeling better and he's ready to return to game action. Although, he's missed the last 11 games and will likely be limited during Sunday's game. Khem Birch and Mohamed Bamba are going to lose most of their fantasy value once Vucevic returns. Fantasy owners should check back for an update on Vucevic's status on Sunday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

7 hours agoLos Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams (calf) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Chicago Bulls. He missed the first game of the back-to-back set due to a calf issue. Patrick Beverley (head) would benefit if Williams sits, but he's questionable for this game as well. Derrick Walton Jr. should see around 30 minutes of playing time if Williams and Beverley are out again.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tomer Azarly

7 hours agoLos Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard (rest) will sit out of Saturday's game against the Chicago Bulls. Leonard played 37 minutes during Friday's game and will sit out the second game of the back-to-back set. Paul George will be asked to do the heavy lifting on offense. George should be a strong DFS option with Leonard sitting and Patrick Beverley (head) and Lou Williams (calf) questionable.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tomer Azarly

7 hours agoLos Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley (head) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Chicago Bulls. Beverley is dealing with a concussion that he suffered during Wednesday's contest. He did not suit up on Friday and it appears there's a good chance of him sitting out another contest. Lou Williams (calf) is questionable as well, but he'd benefit if Beverley is out. Otherwise, Derrick Walton Jr. will see a similar role that he saw during Friday's game.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tomer Azarly

7 hours agoPhoenix Suns forward Dario Saric (back) will play in Saturday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. He was listed as probable on Friday, so it doesn't sound like too serious of an issue. However, Aron Baynes is back in the rotation, so that'll hurt Saric. Deandre Ayton (suspension) is looming and he'll likely kill any fantasy value that Saric has left in most formats.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Phoenix Suns

Booker was able to play through the issue on Wednesday. Mikal Bridges, Tyler Johnson and Cameron Johnson will see increased playing time. Bridges is getting the start and is worth a look as a streaming option for Saturday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tom Orsborn

7 hours agoCharlotte Hornets forward Nicolas Batum (finger) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Indiana Pacers. The Hornets already will be without PJ Washington (finger) and Marvin Williams (knee) on Sunday. Having Batum would be great, but the Hornets are likely going to wait and see how he feels closer to tip-off. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cody Martin, Malik Monk, and Dwayne Bacon will see more minutes going forward with the Hornets banged up.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Charlotte Hornets PR

7 hours agoCharlotte Hornets forward PJ Washington (finger) won't suit up for Sunday's game against the Indiana Pacers. He suffered a fractured finger on his right hand during the fourth quarter of Friday's game. Washington is expected to miss at least five games, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Marvin Williams (knee) will join Washington on the sidelines for Sunday. Cody Martin, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Dwayne Bacon, and Malik Monk will all see increased minutes until Williams and Washington are back. None of these guys are great fantasy options, but they could be useful in deep leagues.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

7 hours agoCharlotte Hornets forward Marvin Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Indiana Pacers. He continues to deal with a nagging knee issue, but hopefully he'll be back on the court soon. Cody Martin, Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk will see increased minutes. PJ Washington (finger) won't play on Sunday, so Michael Kidd-Gilchrist should get more chances coming his way.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Rick Bonnell

7 hours agoBuffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel had another impressive multi-point performance in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders, extending his career-high point streak to 16 games. The Sabres captain took the game into the extra frame with a late power-play goal and he also had a power-play assist on a Victor Olofsson goal. The Swede mimicked Eichel's production in the game, and he now has points in 16 of his last 19 appearances. It's been an immense run from Eichel, and it's a shame the team has managed to win only half of the games during his streak, which now includes 27 points in total.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

8 hours agoNew York Islanders left wing Anthony Beauvillier ended a five-game goal drought in a nice spot on Saturday, netting his 10th marker of the season in overtime to beat Buffalo 3-2. He also picked up an assist in the game, while Brock Nelson enjoyed a multi-point outing with two helpers. Michael Dal Colle and Jordan Eberle got on the scoresheet as well. Beauvillier became the fourth Islanders player to reach the 20-point mark this season, but he tends to be very streaky. He had a four-game multi-point streak a month ago but followed it up with just two points in 10 games before finding his flow again on Saturday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
8 hours agoColumbus Blue Jackets center Alexandre Texier produced a two-goal performance on Saturday against Ottawa, helping the team erase a two-goal deficit in the third frame, but the team still had to settle for an overtime loss in the end. Cam Atkinson also scored for the Jackets in a 4-3 defeat, Eric Robinson and Pierre-Luc Dubois both tallied two assists. The latter ended a six-game dry spell. Texier hasn't done too much this year after impressing in pre-season, but he does have some nice numbers this month with five points in six games. The Frenchman is skating on the top line alongside Atkinson and Gustav Nyquist, so he's in a good spot to continue the recent good run in the upcoming games.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
8 hours agoOttawa Senators left wing Anthony Duclair continued his hot form on Saturday with a hat trick in a 4-3 overtime win over Columbus. The Sens blew a two-goal lead in the third period, but Duclair popped up with a power-play goal in overtime. The former Blue Jacket now has three multi-goal performances in his last four outings, and he's quietly been one of the league's best goal-scorers in recent weeks, notching eight goals this month. Duclair has bounced around a lot of teams, but he seems to have found himself a good spot in Ottawa. The 24-year-old winger is leading the Senators in both goals (18) and points (25).--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

8 hours agoWashington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson is done for the 2019 season, as the team has set him on injured reserve due to a hamstring injury. It marks the second consecutive season that Richardson’s campaign has come to an end while on IR, as the wideout had not suited up since Week 12 against Detroit. After hauling in touchdowns during two of his first three games this year, Richardson saw his role in the Washington passing attack ebb downward as the year progressed. Terry McLaurin should figure to continue to be the No. 1 option for rookie signal caller Dwayne Haskins over the final three weeks. Richardson finishes his season having made 28 catches for 245 yards and two scores.--Jesse Borek - RotoBallerSource: Adam Caplan

9 hours agoNew Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (elbow) and tight end Jared Cook (concussion) were both listed as full participants. Brees was a late add to the injury report on Friday with an elbow injury that looked to have occurred on the last drive of a narrow, Week 14 loss to the 49ers. Cook was able to get a full session in after a limited one on Thursday. Both should be good to go on Monday night- and should be in lineups against the Colts 22nd-ranked pass defense.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: New Orleans Saints

9 hours agoIndianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton (calf) is a game-time decision for Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints. The 30-year-old is closer to a return this week after being limited in practice, compared to DNPs last week. Even if he does suit up, it's risky to play him, considering it's a Monday night game plus he may see a lot of Saints star corner Marshon Lattimore. It's also worth noting that the team did limit him earlier in the year when he first attempted to return from this injury. If he's unable to go, receivers Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson, as well as tight end Jack Doyle, would see upticks in targets.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: Indianapolis Colts

11 hours agoPhiladelphia Eagles running back Jordan Howard (shoulder) and wide receiver Nelson Agholor (knee) have been ruled out for Week 15 against the Washington Redskins. Howard was limited all week and is probably closer to a return than Agholor, who logged three DNPs this week. With Howard out, Miles Sanders and Boston Scott will lead the backfield against Washington's 27th-ranked run defense. Already thin at wide receiver, the Eagles will start JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward, and Robert Davis. The real winners are tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, who will both see more targets against Washington- they've allowed the ninth-most fantasy points to tight ends.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: Tim McManus

11 hours agoMinnesota Vikings tight end Irv Smith Jr. is not a recommended option for Week 15 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Smith Jr. actually received more snaps and targets than Kyle Rudolph in a Week 14 victory over the Detroit Lions, but he was only able to muster three catches for 21 yards. He just simply doesn't get enough targets or red-zone looks to be started with confidence this week, and the Chargers Defense being stellar against tight ends certainly doesn't help his outlook. There are likely higher-upside TE2 streamers available for you to use in your fantasy playoff matchup.--Kyle Ringstad - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

11 hours agoMinnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph saw his four-game touchdown streak come to and end last week against the Lions, and his outlook for Week 15 isn't looking encouraging. The Chargers Defense has allowed an average of just under four catches per game to tight ends this season and safety Derwin James has made a huge difference since his return in Week 13. Rudolph ranks sixth in red-zone targets among tight ends this season, but his touchdown equity definitely takes a hit with Adam Thielen set to return to action. Owners should prepare for the potential floor game from the touchdown-dependent veteran tight end.--Kyle Ringstad - RotoBallerSource: NFL.com

12 hours agoDetroit Lions running back Kerryon Johnson (knee, IR) is setback-free and nearing a return to the field. Johnson hasn't played since tearing his meniscus in Week 7, which he had November surgery to repair. The 22-year-old has practiced the last two weeks, earning the praise of Coach Matt Patricia for his "good energy." With the Lions sitting at 3-9-1, there's no real reason for Johnson to be out there, though the team seems to want him to get game reps before the season ends. If he returns next week, he'll be looking at a timeshare backfield with Bo Scarborough, which will presumably lower both player's fantasy values.--Tim Capurso - RotoBallerSource: The Detroit News
Share:
12 hours agoMemphis Grizzlies forward/center Jaren Jackson Jr. went off for a career-high in multiple categories in Friday's 127-114 loss to the Bucks, finishing with 43 points, five rebounds, one assist and one block on 14-for-21 shooting from the field and 9-for-15 from three-point range in 29 minutes. The 20-year-old exploded for 26 points in the third quarter alone, making seven three-pointers in the frame to set the Grizzlies franchise record for points in a single quarter in dominant fashion. The sophomore set personal career-bests in points, three-point field goals made and attempted in the contest. Jackson Jr. is providing fantasy owners with a hot stretch of recent performances and should be started in all formats moving forward.--Denis Vondrus - RotoBallerSource: NBA.com

12 hours agoColorado Avalanche forward Valeri Nichushkin scored a goal in Friday night's win over New Jersey, giving him his sixth goal of the season and third in the last four games. Nichushkin is now on a four-game point streak, the longest of his NHL career, and has recorded eight points in his last 10 games. After scoring his first goal of the season three weeks ago, it seems like something may have finally clicked offensively for the big-bodied forward. After putting up 34 points in his rookie season, Nichushkin has failed to reach that mark in any other season, though his recent streak now has him on pace to challenge it. Not a lock to consistently put up productive numbers for fantasy, he does make a very intriguing streaming option, as he is already seeing some power-play usage and will be given an opportunity to provide the secondary scoring Colorado needed coming into the season.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

12 hours agoBackup goalie changes are not usually of major importance in the fantasy news landscape but could this move be related to the Taylor Hall trade rumors that are swirling? Cayden Primeau's promotion over the more experience Charlie Lindgren (who has now been promoted) always seemed like a curious decision. It may have been a move made to showcase the young goalie for a potential trade given Carey Price isn't going anywhere and New Jersey's goalies have collectively struggled all season. Just 20 years old, Primeau posted a collective .931 save percentage in his first two NHL appearances. He has significant long-term potential but also showed he might be ready sooner than anyone expected, which makes him a tantalizing trade piece. --Marc Hulet - RotoBallerSource: Daily Faceoff on Twitter
Share:
12 hours agoNew Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall did not play in Friday night's game against the Avalanche, reportedly held out as a healthy scratch as a precaution. As if being held out of the game was not enough to send the hockey world into a frenzy, Peter McNab on the Colorado broadcast pointed out that "Taylor Hall's bag is by itself in the corridor" during the game. Colorado is one of the team's rumored to be interested in trading for the former Hart Trophy winner, which added an extra bit of tension to the news, but ultimately a deal was not announced Friday night. New Jersey plays Arizona next, a team also linked to Hall in rumors, and it seems likely Hall will be held out of that game as well. Fantasy managers will be in a stalemate until the situation is resolved, leaving Hall as nothing more than a bench stash in the short-term.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: Greg Wyshynski on Twitter
Share:
13 hours agoColorado Avalanche goaltender Pavel Francouz allowed only a single goal on 38 shots against New Jersey, earning him his ninth win of the season. Francouz has taken over the starter's role while Phillip Grubauer is sidelined with an injury, and has run with it, winning three of his four appearances and stopping 113 of 120 shots. Already off to a strong start with a .932 save percentage across 14 games, a solid argument can be made that Francouz has outplayed Grubauer (.914 save percentage) this season. Grubauer has returned to practice, but Colorado is still carrying three goalies on their roster, implying that his return is not imminent. If Francouz can continue to shine with a heavy workload, you have to question how much of the crease will be left for Grubauer when he returns. In the short term, Francouz should be rostered in most leagues, with one eye kept on his usage when Grubauer returns.--Russ Ivanac - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
13 hours agoCincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd is a risky option on Sunday when he takes on the Patriots top-ranked pass defense, which is allowing only 25 PPR points a game to receivers. Boyd usually sees the lions share of the Bengals' targets; however, he was out-targeted by Alex Erickson last week, and the two were only one target apart in Week 12 against Pittsburgh. With Boyd likely seeing Stephon Gilmore in coverage, it wouldn't be shocking to see Andy Dalton turn to Erickson and John Ross for targets. Boyd could see a bump in volume during garbage time, but you likely don't want to rely on that with fantasy seasons on the line, which makes Boyd more of a low-end WR3 or WR4 in this matchup.--Eric Samulski - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

13 hours agoCincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton finds himself in a matchup to avoid on Sunday against the Patriots' league-best passing defense. New England has allowed only 15.4 points a game to opposing quarterbacks, and Dalton hasn't topped 262 yards through the air in his two games since being back under center. He should see a fair amount of garbage time to rack up stats, but the risk greatly outweighs the reward. He might be in play in deep two-quarterback leagues, but owners in other formats should be looking for another option.--Eric Samulski - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

13 hours agoCincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon will get a stern test on Sunday against the New England Patriots. The Patriots are tops in the NFL in fantasy points allowed to running backs, only giving up 16 PPR points a game to the position. While Mixon has been trending up of late, he did only see 59% of the team's snaps last week while they trailed the Browns, with Giovani Bernard seeing 40% of snaps. Mixon also hasn't topped four targets per game during his resurgence, so his passing game involvement hasn't grown to a level that would salvage this matchup. With the Bengals figuring to be behind for much of the game, Mixon won't see much value on the ground and could only play 60% of the team's snaps. That makes him a touchdown-dependent low-end RB2 and a player to avoid in DFS.--Eric Samulski - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com
