1 week agoMemphis Grizzlies forward Kyle Anderson (thigh) was a full participant during Monday's practice. However, Anderson remains questionable for Tuesday's preseason contest versus New Zealand. He missed the first preseason game, but Anderson has gone through multiple full-contact practices now. He's someone worth looking at late in most drafts.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Michael Wallace

1 week agoZack Greinke and the Astros came into this game favored to beat the Rays and sweep the series. The Rays had other plans, hitting Greinke in the mouth early and often and never letting up. Brandon Lowe, Ji-Man Choi, Kevin Kiermaier, and Willy Adames all connected on home runs. Charlie Morton pitched five one-run innings before handing it over to a tired bullpen, albeit a great one. Chaz Roe had some trouble and allowed two runs, but Drake and Poche cleaned it up with a near-perfect last three innings. This series heads to a game four, where Justin Verlander and Diego Castillo will face off. Good luck Tampa Bay.--Austyn Varney - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

1 week agoChicago Bulls forward Otto Porter will get the start in Monday's preseason contest versus the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bulls don't want to push Porter too much after he was sidelined late last season due to injuries. He'll play in the first half of this game, but will sit out after halftime. It doesn't appear Porter is dealing with an injury, but this is the Bulls being cautious. He should be fine for the regular season, so fantasy owners shouldn't have to worry.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Darnell Mayberry

1 week agoCleveland Cavaliers point guard Darius Garland (foot) will make his preseason debut on Monday against San Lorenzo of Argentina. Garland was limited in camp earlier due to a foot issue, but seems better now. He's been in full-contact practice and was cleared to play in these exhibition games. There is a chance that the Cavs decide to limit Garland here, but he looks like he'll be fully healthy for the regular season.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Spencer Davies

1 week agoWashington Wizards forward Justin Anderson will get a chance with the starting lineup in Monday's preseason game versus the New York Knicks. He joined the team with a non-guaranteed deal, but has a chance to make the team. C.J. Miles (foot), Troy Brown Jr. (calf) and Admiral Schofield (hamstring) are all sidelined with injuries. Anderson will jump into the starting five alongside Ish Smith, Bradley Beal, Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant on Monday. Anderson won't have basically any fantasy value besides possibly deep leagues, assuming he grabs a starting spot out of camp.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Washington Wizards

1 week agoThe Rays took game three from the Astros, hitting four home runs and giving Zack Greinke a bad day. Justin Verlander is pitching on three days rest, so they obviously see the Rays as a real threat here. As Verlander explained in his press conference, you don't want to mess around and let a team take you to five. This is baseball and bad things can happen quickly. This gives the Astros Verlander and Cole in games four and five, which has to make Rays' fans stomach turn. I doubt Verlander goes over 100 pitches on such short rest, but could very easily get to seven innings in that time.--Austyn Varney - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

1 week agoNew York Knicks center Bobby Portis (rib) will not suit up for Monday's preseason contest against the Washington Wizards. Portis is dealing with a bruised rib, but it doesn't sound like something that will limit him in the regular season. The Knicks are a bit crowded in terms of depth, but Portis should have fantasy value if he can carve out around 20 minutes per game.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Knicks PR

1 week agoNew Orleans Pelicans forward Derrick Favors (hamstring) will play in Monday's preseason game versus the Atlanta Hawks. Favors missed a few practices and was listed as questionable heading into this one. The Pelicans may decide to limit him, but he should be good to go for Monday. Fantasy owners shouldn't have anything to worry about, because it sounds like Favors is fine.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Brad Rowland

1 week agoNew York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard (concussion) has been placed in concussion protocol. This is the second concussion this season for the fourth-year wide receiver. A firm timetable has not been set yet, but further updates should be released by the Giants shortly. The Giants have a tough matchup against the Patriots on Thursday night in Week 6, which won't give Shepard enough time to get cleared and back on the field. Golden Tate and Evan Engram should be the primary beneficiaries if Shepard ends up missing a significant amount of time, although fantasy owners may want to stay away from the Giants receiving options in Week 6.--Yossef Magazzinich - RotoBallerSource: Jordan Raanan

1 week agoCleveland Browns wide receiver Rashard Higgins (knee) is not expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night. Higgins has missed the past three weeks with a knee issue. While the Browns will be without Higgins, they will be getting Antonio Callaway back from a four-game suspension. Callaway and Damion Ratley will work behind starters Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry on Monday Night Football.--Matt Terelle - RotoBallerSource: Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter

1 week agoNew York Islanders forwards Josh Bailey and Anthony Beauvillier led the Islanders to a 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night, tallying a goal and assist each. Ten different skaters had points for the Islanders, with Brock Nelson and Anders Lee chipping in the other goals, to even the Islanders record at 1-1. The Islanders have struggled on offense since last season, and it will be rare that they score more than three or four goals in a game, and when they do it will probably be spread out amongst the roster like we seen last night. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com
Share:
1 week agoWinnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine scored the only goal for the Jets in a 4-1 loss to the New York Islanders. This was Laine's first goal of the season in his third game, giving him three total points on the season. Laine now finds himself on the first line with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler, getting his wish to play with better players. Laine's placement on the line should help their chemistry on the powerplay as well, where Laine will usually score a fair number of his goals. If he can remain on Scheifele's flank, his fantasy value should increase significantly, especially as the Jets defensive group continues to struggle and the coach has to send his top offensive guys out more often to chase leads. --Nate Duffett - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

1 week agoPittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin (lower body) will be sidelined "longer-term", according to head coach Mike Sullivan. Malkin fell awkwardly during Saturday's 7-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, and while he is expected to return this season, it will not be for a while. Nick Bjugstad (lower body) also hurt himself in the contest, which means that 25-year-old forward Teddy Blueger is now the team's second-best center behind Sidney Crosby. It is unclear how Sullivan plans to utilize his forwards, as Alex Galchenyuk and Jared McCann could also see an increased role. The Penguins play the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday, so wait until the lineup is released to make any pickups. --Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: Pittsburgh Penguins

1 week agoCarolina Hurricanes defenseman Dougie Hamilton registered a goal and added an assist in his team's 4-3 overtime victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night. The 26-year-old picked up both points on the man advantage and also added two penalty minutes, three shots and one hit while leading all Carolina blueliners with 25:19 of ice time in the contest. Coming off a mildly disappointing first season in Carolina (39 points in 82 games), Hamilton is off to a nice start in 2019-2020. Through his first three games, the Ontario native has posted four points (one goal, three assists), three power-play points, nine shots and one hit. He'll look to stay hot in his next game versus the Panthers on Tuesday.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com

1 week agoDallas Stars forward Roope Hintz made it three goals in three games on Sunday, scoring a pair in a 4-3 loss to Detroit. Tyler Seguin also found himself on the scoresheet as the Stars suffered their third consecutive loss. It's been a very rough start for the team, but Hintz, who had 22 points in 58 games last season, is nicely up and running. He skates on the second line with Joe Pavelski and Mattias Janmark, while also logging minutes on the first power-play unit. The team hasn't yet scored a single power-play goal, but with all the talent on their top unit, it should only be a matter of time.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
Share:
1 week agoDetroit Red Wings right wing Anthony Mantha had a career night on Sunday against Dallas, scoring all four goals in a 4-3 win. Mantha became the sixth player in franchise history to score a hat trick in their home opener and the third to get a natural hat trick. The Stars were up 2-0 before Mantha started his show with a power-play goal in the second frame. Dylan Larkin and Filip Hronek both helped him out with two assists. Mantha had a career-high 25 goals last season, even though he ended up playing in just 67 games. He already has five goals and seven points in two games this year, so it looks like he's heading towards a monster year.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoThe Tennessee Titans Defense limited Josh Allen to 219 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5. While the Titans did manage to record an interception, Tennessee did most of the work by getting to Allen four times on the day. The Titans remain one of the best defensive units in the league and are currently ranked ninth overall with 332.2 yards allowed per contest. They will likely keep it going in Week 6 against Joe Flacco and the Broncos, with Denver ranking in the bottom-10 in total offense on the year.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans wide receiver Tajae Sharpe finished with just one reception for 12 yards against Buffalo in Week 5. With the Bills Defense pummeling Marcus Mariota by recording five sacks on the day, nobody outside of Derrick Henry was able to do much. The 24-year-old should be left off of fantasy teams, at least for now, as his five receptions on eight targets won't do much to help anyone. If the Titans face an injury issue, Sharpe may produce a bit more, but don't expect anything anytime soon.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans wide receiver Corey Davis was quiet in Week 5, finishing with just two catches for 28 yards in the loss to the Bills. This has been the norm for the 24-year-old throughout the season as he has only 13 receptions (22 targets) for 201 yards and a score after having a decent 2018 campaign. Davis shouldn't be owned in a majority of fantasy leagues this season, but if you are desperate or an injury occurs, he may produce at some point. Don't hold your breath for production anytime soon, however.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans kicker Cairo Santos missed all four field goal attempts on Sunday against Buffalo. With the team's offense unable to get anything going as a result of a rough Bills Defense, the 27-year-old fizzled when he was needed the most. Santos has five misses on the year and hasn't done much to earn a spot on fantasy rosters this season. He will look to get it together against the Broncos in Week 6.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans wide receiver Adam Humphries finished with 30 yards on four receptions on Sunday. Outside of Derrick Henry, who finished with the team's only touchdown in Week 5, the offense wasn't able to get anything going as Marcus Mariota faced an onslaught of pressure from a tough Bills Defense. After hauling in six catches for 93 yards against the Jags in Week 3, the former Buccaneer hasn't done much of anything and should only have a home on fantasy teams for managers looking for a week-to-week streaming option in deeper leagues.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown had two receptions for 27 yards during the loss to the Bills. While he almost scored off of a toss from Marcus Mariota early in the fourth quarter, it was called back after officials determined that the veteran quarterback was over the line of scrimmage. Brown currently leads the team with 250 receiving yards on the year and has become one of Mariota's go-to options. He won't produce every week, but he still has a place in fantasy lineups in deeper formats.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans running back Dion Lewis had two carries for 11 yards to go along with two receptions for 19 yards during the 14-7 loss to Buffalo on Sunday. With the Bills Defense recording five sacks, while pressing quarterback Marcus Mariota throughout the day, nobody outside of Derrick Henry got anything going in Week 5, to Lewis' credit. Nonetheless, he is long ways removed from his glory days and has virtually no fantasy value at the moment unless Henry is plagued with an injury at some point this season.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker hauled in just one reception (two targets) for 10 yards during the loss to Buffalo on Sunday. With the Bills Defense making life miserable for Marcus Mariota, the offense had trouble getting production out of anyone outside of Derrick Henry, who finished with 78 yards and a score on 20 attempts. After being heavily involved during the first three weeks of the season, the veteran has fizzled by catching just two passes for 14 yards over the last two games. Walker is useful as a streamer when the matchup is right, but he cannot be relied on for anything outside of that at the moment.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry provided the only source of scoring against a tough Bills Defense on Sunday, finishing things up with 78 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. As Marcus Mariota faced constant pressure and kicker Cairo Santos missing all four of his field goal attempts, Henry provided a small spark for an underwhelming offense that put up just seven points in Week 5. With five touchdowns in the books for Henry so far in 2019, he will look to stay on track against the Broncos in Week 6.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoTennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota had a miserable performance against Buffalo in Week 5. With the Bills Defense recording five sacks on the day, the 25-year-old wasn't able to get anything going, finishing with 183 yards on 13-for-22 passing. Though Mariota nearly threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to A.J. Brown early in the fourth quarter, officials called it back after it was determined that he was over the line of scrimmage. The 2015 second-overall pick hasn't played too bad this season, however, as he has yet to throw an interception while maintaining an acceptable 61.7 completion percentage. He will look to get back on track against the Broncos in Week 6.--Dennis Clausen - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

1 week agoLos Angeles Chargers kicker Chase McLaughlin did pretty well in his first action with the team on Sunday. McLaughlin got off to a rough start when his first field goal attempt as a Charger was tipped at the line of scrimmage and fell well short of the uprights, but he composed himself and knocked two other field goals through without issue. He also made the only extra point try he had. McLaughlin is expected to only be around for a couple weeks while Michael Badgley, the team's expected kicker, continues to heal from his groin injury. That said, Badgley was expected back weeks ago, so McLaughlin could end up with a regular job if Badgley suffers any additional setbacks.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: NFL

1 week agoLos Angeles Chargers cornerback Desmond King provided one of the only bright spots for Chargers fans on Sunday afternoon. At the end of the third quarter, King hauled a Broncos punt through traffic around his own 40-yard line and broke free. He roasted a pair of Broncos in a foot race and crossed the goal line with ease, giving the Chargers their only touchdown of the game. From a defensive standpoint, King and the rest of the Chargers Defense weren't terribly impressive, surrendering 191 rushing yards to Denver. That said, they did garner a strip sack and fumble recovery as well as an interception, and the Broncos still only scored 20 points.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: NFL

1 week agoLos Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen was completely held in check by the Denver Broncos Defense on Sunday. Allen tallied four catches for just 18 yards, and 17 yards of that came on his first two catches of the game. It was clear that Denver made a point of removing Allen from the game, and they were completely successful in pushing quarterback Philip Rivers into throwing checkdowns all afternoon instead. Allen is still the clear No. 1 receiver on the field, and most teams won't have a shutdown cornerback like Chris Harris Jr. at their disposal, but it's still concerning to see how much the LA offense struggled to deal with the challenge.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: NFL

1 week agoLos Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams got a boost in his production on Sunday since Keenan Allen was blanketed throughout the day, and he was able to haul in six passes in the loss. Unfortunately, that was less than half the times he was targeted, but it was still good for 74 yards receiving. Williams was the most used wide receiver by far, but both of quarterback Philip Rivers' interceptions came on passes thrown his way as well. Fortunately for Williams, neither were his fault. Williams has certainly shown the ability to get separation and earn the targets, but with the assortment of playmakers available on the Chargers offense, it's unlikely he'll see dependable use from week to week.--Billy Stonick - RotoBallerSource: NFL
