Acy (ankle) said he expects to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Pacers, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports.
Acy returned to full practice Sunday and indicated his right ankle felt fine afterward, so he doesn't appear at much risk of missing the opener. The Mavericks will turn to Acy to provide some three-point shooting at the power-forward spot off the bench, but he's unlikely to see extended minutes so long as starter Dirk Nowitzki and top backup Dwight Powell remain healthy.
Kane scored a goal, posted a plus-2 rating and registered four shots on net during Monday's loss to Calgary.
It's been business as usual through seven games for Kane. He has returned two goals and six assists with a plus-7 rating and 22 shots on net. While the supporting cast around him might be the weakest it has been since he entered the league, it hasn't impacted Kane's offense. Barring injury, he'll take another run at the Art Ross Trophy while rewarding fantasy owners in the process.
Monahan scored a power-play goal and registered two shots on net during Monday's win over the Blackahwks.
The 22-year-old center is coming off consecutive 60-point campaigns and is poised for another solid showing in his fourth year in the league. However, it's been a slow start, and Monahan has just three goals through seven games thus far. His best fantasy production of 2016-17 is still ahead, so remain patient with the No. 1 center for the Flames.
Hamilton recorded a power-play assist but also received a season-low 15:58 of ice time during Monday's win over Chicago.
It was just the second point of the season for Hamilton, as he is suffering from a limited role early on in his second season with Calgary. Interestingly, he also started slowly last year and played sparingly at times, but Hamilton finished the season with 30 points over the final 45 games of the year with an average of 20:12 of ice time per night. He's in the heart of his prime and has hit 40 points in consecutive seasons, too, so he should be fine over the long haul.
Garrison has two assists in five games this season. He had 11 points, including six assists, in 72 games in 2015-16.
Garrison caught lightning in a bottle in Florida when he delivered 16 goals in 2011-12. Since then, he has 24 goals in four full seasons. Garrison's best days are behind him; he's rolling as a sturdy crease clearer and his fantasy value is sorely limited.
