Cavaliers' Iman Shumpert: Continues his ice-cold shooting27m ago
Iman Shumpert finished with just three points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt) while adding four rebounds, a blocked shot and a steal over 31 minutes in Monday's 102-95 win against the Bucks.
Shumpert has been in a terrible shooting slump over the past few weeks, and perhaps he is still dealing with some lingering effects of an ankle injury which sidelined him earlier in the month. Whatever is ailing him is killing his fantasy owners, especially in rotisserie formats where his shooting percentage is in the tank.
LeBron James CLE SF
Cavaliers' LeBron James: Plays well in return from illness29m ago
LeBron James (illness) scored 24 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, six assists and just two turnovers over 37 minutes in Monday's 102-95 win against the Bucks.
James missed Saturday's contest due to strep throat, an illness head coach Tyronn Lue might now be contending with. The superstar didn't play with any kind of limitations and appears ready to roll at full strength again. Next up is a game at Boston on Wednesday. James is averaging 26.5 points, 11.5 assists and 7.5 rebounds with 1.5 blocks in two games against the Celtics this season.
Anthony Tolliver SAC PF
Kings' Anthony Tolliver: Will come off bench Monday vs. Timberwolves29m ago
Anthony Tolliver will come off the bench for Monday's matchup against the Timberwolves, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Tolliver had drawn the start in the Sacramento Kings ' previous two outings, but has been sent back to the bench by coach Dave Joerger, who may still be experimenting with a starting five to roll with for the remainder of the season. He's seen 31 minutes and 20 minutes respectively in the first two contests since the trade deadline, so his role with the team seems to be somewhat up in the air.
Kyrie Irving CLE PG
Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Finishes with 25 points in Monday's win33m ago
Kyrie Irving scored 25 points (10-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with nine assists, four rebounds and two steals across 37 minutes in Monday's 102-95 win against the Bucks.
Irving is on a hot streak with at least 22 points in each of his past 10 outings, and he is working on a streak of six games with at least six assists. He continues to pick up the slack on the offensive end with Kevin Love (knee) still sidelined. His current streak of 20-plus games (10) is the second highest of the season.
Tyreke Evans SAC PG
Kings' Tyreke Evans: Will come off bench Monday vs. Timberwolves35m ago
Tyreke Evans will come off the bench for Monday's matchup against the Timberwolves, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.
It was assumed that Evans would be the Sacramento Kings ' starting small forward for the remainder of the season, but coach Dave Joerger seems to still be experimenting with his starting five, or will change it based on matchup. That being said, Evans will likely continue to be a high-usage player that sees around 25 minutes per night for the Kings, as he's boasting a usage rate of 26.3 percent in the two games that he's played for the team.
Richaun Holmes PHI PF
76ers' Richaun Holmes: Plays effectively off bench Monday37m ago
Richaun Holmes scored 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with four rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal across 28 minutes during a 119-108 loss to the Warriors on Monday.
Holmes enjoyed extended run for the second time in three games, and he produced effectively at the offensive end while providing a useful presence on defense. Holmes' role could be fickle moving forward considering the fact that he is coming off the bench, but he has shown the ability to produce when given the minutes and could be a worthy fantasy addition if his playing time stabilizes in a significant range.
Andrej Sustr TB D
Lightning's Andrej Sustr: Carving niche as shot blocker15m ago
Andrej Sustr is just four blocked shots from tying his career mark of 84.
Sustr is carving a niche for himself as a stay-at-home shot blocker. That makes him a great teammate, but an awful fantasy player. Sustr has just eight points in 59 games this season.
Devils' Kevin Rooney: Signs contract with Devils19m ago
Kevin Rooney was signed to a one-year, entry-level contract with the New Jersey Devils on Monday. It will last for the duration of the 2016-17 season.
Through 57 games at AHL Albany this year, the 23-year-old has managed 10 goals, seven assists and 39 PIM. He'll remain in the AHL for the time being and it's unclear if (or when) he'll get a shot with the big club this season.
J.T. Brown TB RW
Lightning's J.T. Brown: Struggling to score this season25m ago
J.T. Brown fired three shots on goal in 10:03 of ice time Monday against the Senators.
Points have been hard to come by this season -- Brown has just five (two goals, three assists) in 48 games after posting 22 points in 78 games last season. His fantasy value is thin at best.
Derek Stepan NYR C
Rangers' Derek Stepan: Adds helper Sunday27m ago
Derek Stepan recorded an assist in a 5-2 loss to Columbus on Sunday.
The American center now has 43 points through 62 games, putting him on pace to reach his career high (57 points, 82 games). Stepan has fired 153 shots on goal so far this season, but he is known to make his money as a playmaker -- he's never had more goals than assists in a season. He's also proven he can also play a 200 foot game, recording a plus-15 rating this season, making him a very valuable forward in leagues of medium depth.
Jacob Josefson NJ C
Devils' Jacob Josefson: Left Monday's game with injury29m ago
Josefsen suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's loss to the Canadiens and did not return.
Josefsen played in just 2:21 before departing, and while the exact nature and severity of the injury is unclear, evidently it was serious enough to prevent his return to the contest. With just eight points and 41 shots on goal in 34 games this year, Josefsen's absence from the lineup isn't likely to send shockwaves through the fantasy universe, but an updated timetable for a return should be provided in the coming days nonetheless.
Victor Hedman TB D
Lightning's Victor Hedman: Nine points in last six games29m ago
Victor Hedman delivered two power-play assists in a 5-1 win over the Senators on Monday night.
Hedman has nine points, including six assists, in his last six games; five of those points (one goal, four assists) have come with the man advantage. Hedman has 10 goals, 41 helpers and 49 points, and is quickly closing in on his career highs in goals (13), assists (42) and points (55). Apply liberally and enjoy.
James Paxton SEA SP
Mariners' James Paxton: Scheduled for Cactus League debut Saturday17m ago
James Paxton is scheduled for his spring debut next Saturday versus the Rockies, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Paxton will be the last member of the projected starting rotation to see action this spring, and he won't actually open the game versus Colorado. Rather, the 28-year-old southpaw will "piggyback" starter Yovani Gallardo, going through his full pre-game routine as if preparing to start the game but actually working in a relief capacity. Paxton is scheduled for a normal workload this spring and recently commented that he's "scheduled for 25 (spring) innings" and that he's "healthy and right on schedule."
Adam Wainwright STL SP
Cardinals' Adam Wainwright: Set for six starts this spring29m ago
Adam Wainwright requested and is scheduled to receive extra starts this spring, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "I'd rather go into the season knowing I'm prepared, rather than question marks," Wainwright said Sunday morning. "Two years ago it was a necessity. Last year was somewhat of a necessity. There's no reason to go short anymore. I used to really like coming into the season prepared. This year, I'll be very prepared."
The two-time 20-game winner has plenty of room for improvement despite a solid 13-9 record last season, and the St. Louis Cardinals plan to afford him plenty of work to get him started on the right foot this spring. That's in sharp contrast to previous exhibition slates, when Wainwright has been on a reduced throwing program due to health issues. Wainwright is slated to kick off what will be a busy spring with a start against the Braves on Thursday, which will set him on course to potentially open six spring training games overall. If schedule holds, it will result in the veteran right-hander starting just one fewer game than the two previous springs combined.
David Dahl COL LF
Rockies' David Dahl: Late scratch Monday5h ago
David Dahl was a late scratch from Monday's game due to a sore back, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
The injury doesn't seem serious, and manager Bud Black deemed it "not a big deal," so Dahl should be back in the next few days. The 22-year-old hit .315 with seven home runs in 63 games last season and will look to player a bigger role with the Colorado Rockies in 2017. He is currently in a competition with veteran Gerardo Parra for the last starting outfield spot.
Yoan Moncada CHW 2B
White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Dazzles defensively against Cubs5h ago
Yoan Moncada made multiple impressive defensive plays at second base in his first start with Chicago White Sox , which included a diving stop up the middle that started a double play.
Although it is still early, Moncada is starting to look like he can be an impact player defensively at second base. While the White Sox star prospect appears to be MLB-ready in the field, the next step in his development will be translating his off-the-charts tools into a more refined approach at the plate.
Jarrett Parker SF RF
Giants' Jarrett Parker: Smacks first homer of spring Sunday5h ago
Jarrett Parker went 2-for-2 with two walks, a homer, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's spring training win over the Reds.
Parker definitely got his spring started off with a bang, reaching base in all four of his plate appearances and taking Nick Routt deep in the fourth. We can't get too excited about spring training stats, especially considering the pitcher he took deep won't be on an Opening Day roster. That being said, Parker is going to be locked in a battle with Mac Williamson throughout the Cactus League for the right to be the San Francisco Giants ' everyday left fielder, so any positive production will help his stock rise. This competition could come down to the wire, with the winner of the battle becoming a cheap source of power in fantasy.
Jose Abreu CHW 1B
White Sox's Jose Abreu: To take two day personal absence5h ago
Jose Abreu will head to Miami following Monday's game to tend to personal matters and expects to be back in camp on Wednesday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Abreu's brief absence will in all likelihood not heavily factor into his preparation for the season. The 30-year-old first baseman went 2-for-3 on Monday against the Cubs, which included hitting a long, "no-doubter" home run. He'll look to stay hot when he returns from his absence, presumably on Wednesday.
Melvin Ingram SD OLB
Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Receives franchise tag from Chargers2h ago
Melvin Ingram received the Los Angeles Chargers ' franchise tag on Monday, CSN's Albert Breer reports.
Ingram and the Chargers still have until July 15 to reach a long-term deal. However, in the event the two sides don't agree to terms in time, it isn't clear if he'll be priced as a linebacker or a defensive end. The former is estimated to amount to $15 million while the latter will likely come in around $17 million. Ingram hasn't missed a game the last two seasons and racked up 18.5 sacks and 125 tackles across that time span. Combined with the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Joey Bosa, he's now set to spearhead the Chargers' pass rush for at least one more year.
Robert Woods BUF WR
Bills' Robert Woods: Like Tyrod Taylor, status up in the air4h ago
Robert Woods , about to become an unrestricted free agent, said in a Sirius XM Radio interview last week that he'd prefer to be back with the Buffalo Bills , though what the team decides to do with quarterback Tyrod Taylor will also be a factor, BuffaloBills.com reports. "I think there's always hope," said Woods. "I finished out well with them had a good talk with Doug Whaley upstairs. ... I've got to speak with them and see their plans and see what happens with the quarterback decision there. Everything factors in. It has to be the right amount as well as the quarterback decision. They don't have a quarterback right now. Tyrod is a pending free agent. EJ Manuel is coming up as a free agent and there are many quarterbacks on the market as well. Who knows the decisions that are going on upstairs, but we'll all find out in a few weeks. I could see Buffalo still sticking with Tyrod most definitely."
It also matters what the Bills want to do with Woods, who won't come cheap even though he's had modest but not great numbers since the team made him a second-round pick in 2013. We'll see where this leads, as the team has almost nothing at wideout right now after Sammy Watkins (foot). If the Bills decide Woods is too expensive, or he's not interested in returning with a new quarterback, it's possible the team could take Mike Williams or Corey Davis with the No. 10 pick in the upcoming draft.
Greg Van Roten
Jaguars' Greg Van Roten: Signs wth Jaguars5h ago
Greg Van Roten signed a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, Jacksonville.com reports.
Van Roten spent the last two seasons with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts and was named the team's Most Outstanding Lineman in both. He has limited NFL experience consisting of 10 game appearances for the Packers in 2012 and 2013 and will now compete for a depth role with the Jaguars.
Avery Young NO T
Avery Young: Waived by Saints5h ago
Avery Young (undisclosed) was waived by the Saints on Monday, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.
Young spent the 2016 season on the Saints' reserve/non-football injury list with an undisclosed ailment. When healthy, the Auburn product could land a contract with a team in need of a versatile offensive lineman that can play both guard and tackle.
Kenny Stills MIA WR
Dolphins' Kenny Stills: Not expected back in Miami6h ago
Kenny Stills is expected to leave Miami in free agency, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Stills had a big season in 2016 with 42 receptions, 726 yards, and nine touchdowns. The Miami Dolphins would like him back and will talk to his representative at the NFL Scouting Combine, but in the end Stills is expected to require a contract with an AAV of $12 million per season, which is likely to be too much for Miami to spend with Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker requiring pay raises in the next two years.
Antonio Brown PIT WR
Steelers' Antonio Brown: Signs new five-year contract with Steelers6h ago
Antonio Brown signed a new five-year contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday.
Brown's deal will keep him with the Steelers through the 2021 campaign and includes a four-year extension worth $68 million, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The timing of the agreement comes as Brown was set to enter the final year of his old contract in 2017. Now secured in Pittsburgh for the long haul, the 28-year-old will aim to remain among the league's elite wide receivers and build on his four straight seasons of at least 105 catches, 1,280 yards, and eight touchdowns.
