Bills' LeSean McCoy: New QB this week20m ago
McCoy's teammate Josh Allen has already been ruled out for Week 7 with an elbow injury and could miss a few more weeks of action. Derek Anderson will start at quarterback this week against the Colts.
It's not like Allen was lighting the world on fire, but he had been keeping the Bills in games on the other side of what's been an excellent defense, which in turn meant the Bills -- and hence McCoy -- could run the ball more, something the team wasn't able to do earlier in the season. McCoy has put up 158 rushing yards over the last two games, so at least he's starting to provide owners with some value, though we're already entering Week 7 and he still hasn't found the end zone. This may be the league's worst offense, so hopefully for McCoy owners the 35-year-old Anderson can at least keep the chains moving, otherwise McCoy might get swept up in the mess, as was the case the first two games when he only saw 16 carries combined. If you're looking for some good news, McCoy does get the Colts and their bottom-10 defense this week, plus you can bet the Bills will give him the ball early and often in an attempt to protect a quarterback that's not even fully familiar with the playbook yet.
Jake Brendel MIA C
Dolphins' Jake Brendel: Returns to practice2h ago
Brendel (calf) returned to practice on Wednesday, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Brendel was placed on injured reserve at the start of the season due to the calf injury that plagued him through August. The 26-year-old is eligible to return following the Week 8 game against the Texans, and must be activated prior to Nov. 8 or must remain on IR for the rest of the season.
Mike Hull MIA LB
Dolphins' Mike Hull: Practices Wednesday3h ago
Hull (knee) took part in Wednesday's practice session, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Hull will be eligible to be activated off IR on Oct. 26 and his participation in practice Wednesday suggests that he could be on target to do so. The fourth-year linebacker recorded 35 tackles (27 solo) last season and figures to return to a reserve role at linebacker when added to the 53-man roster.
Obo Okoronkwo LAR LB
Rams' Ogbonnia Okoronkwo: Rejoins practice Wednesday3h ago
Okoronkwo (foot) participated in practice Wednesday for the first time since landing on the PUP list to begin the season, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.
Okoronkwo reportedly feels great as he begins participation, likely suggesting he will be activated off the PUP list well ahead of the 21 days allotted. When ready, the rookie fifth-round pick will look to make his first impact on the football field after a delayed start to his professional career.
Takkarist McKinley ATL DE
Falcons' Takkarist McKinley: Part of dominant quartet3h ago
McKinley is one of a group of four Falcons defenders -- including Grady Jarrett (ankle), Jack Crawford and Vic Beasley -- that when on the field together help hold opponents to 4.0 yards per pass play, which would rank first in the NFL, per Pro Football Focus.
It's somewhat of a far-reaching stat, but the recognition of this trend showing the effectiveness of having McKinley, Jarrett, Crawford and Beasley on the field simultaneously may motivate Dan Quinn to dial up more packages with this combination. Following an electrifying start to the season, McKinley himself has cooled off over the past two weeks. The second-year man tallied 4.5 sacks and six tackles over his first three appearances of the year, but has no sacks and just two tackles in games against the Buccaneers and Steelers since. McKinley has an opportunity to heat up against the Giants in a Week 7 Monday Night matchup, facing a swiss cheese-like offensive line that is tied for the fifth-most sacks allowed in 2018.
Adrian Colbert SF FS
49ers' Adrian Colbert: Full participant Wednesday3h ago
Colbert (head) was estimated as a full participant at Wednesday's walkthrough practice session, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Colbert exited Monday's game against the Packers with an apparent head injury, but he appears to be no worse for the wear because of it. Barring a setback at some point, he's in a good position to play in Sunday's game against the Rams.
Steven Wright BOS RP
Red Sox's Steven Wright: Fires successful bullpen Wednesday5m ago
Wright (knee) threw a successful bullpen session Wednesday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.
Wednesday marked the veteran hurler's first bullpen session since being shut down and removed from the ALDS roster with a knee issue. Wright said afterwards that he feels like he could pitch right now if asked, suggesting he could be added to the team's World Series roster should Boston advance.
Kenley Jansen LAD RP
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Nails down save in Game 52h ago
Jansen struck out the only batter he faced to get the save in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series.
After Caleb Ferguson and Ryan Madson combined to get the first two outs of the ninth inning, Jansen struck out Mike Moustakas on four pitches to pick up the save in Game 5. The closer has been lights out in the postseason, posting a 0.00 ERA with seven strikeouts and three saves through five appearances.
Brandon Woodruff MIL RP
Brewers' Brandon Woodruff: Goes 5.1 innings in Game 53h ago
Woodruff (1-1) gave up two runs on five hits with one walk over 5.1 innings in a loss to the Dodgers in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series. He struck out eight.
After Wade Miley walked the first batter of the game, Woodruff limited the Dodgers to only two runs in 5.1 innings. Unfortunately for Woodruff, Clayton Kershaw was spectacular, and the two runs would be enough to hang the loss on the 25-year-old. The right-hander now has 15 strikeouts with a 2.45 ERA through 10.1 innings in the postseason.
Clayton Kershaw LAD SP
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Wins in Game 53h ago
Kershaw (2-1) gave up one run on three hits with two walks over seven innings in a win over the Brewers in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series. He struck out nine.
A double off the bat of Lorenzo Cain was the only blemish in a stellar outing that earned Kershaw his second win of the postseason and has the Dodgers one win away from the World Series. The dominant performance was a return to form for the left-hander after taking the loss in Game 1 and giving up four runs in only three innings. The 30-year-old is now 2-1 with a 4.50 ERA and 14 strikeouts in the playoffs.
Wade Miley MIL SP
Brewers' Wade Miley: Set for Game 6 start6h ago
Miley will start Game 6 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
In a surprising twist, Miley served as Milwaukee's "opener" in Game 5, as manager Craig Counsell elected to remove the left-hander following just one batter. Per Rosenthal, this was the club's plan all along, so Miley will be ready to go for Game 6 after using Wednesday's start as a light bullpen session.
Chris Sale BOS SP
Red Sox's Chris Sale: Ruled out for Game 5 start6h ago
Sale will not pitch in Game 5 on Thursday since he's still feeling weak from a stomach illness that put him in the hospital earlier this week, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.
There was initial hope that Sale would be ready to start Thursday's contest after coming down with the illness Sunday, though the Red Sox's victory in Game 3 may have played a role in changing manager Alex Cora's thought process regarding the left-hander's availability. Sale was able to throw a light bullpen session Wednesday and tentatively will line up to start Saturday's game back in Boston should the series extend past five games. Look for an update on his status in the coming days.
Julius Randle NO PF
Pelicans' Julius Randle: Scores 25 points in Wednesday's win2m ago
Randle recorded 25 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, and three assists in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 131-112 win over the Rockets.
Randle came off the bench and finished with more points than minutes. He was extremely effective both inside and out, showcasing a willingness to let it fly from deep. Randle made three-of-seven three-point attempts in three preseason appearances, but he hasn't made more than 0.2 threes per game or connected on over 27.8 percent in a single season thus far in his career. It appears as if Randle is aiming to add another wrinkle to his game, and he figures to be a factor in fantasy regardless of role.
Andre Drummond DET C
Pistons' Andre Drummond: Kicks off season with huge double-double3m ago
Drummond scored 24 points (10-21 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 20 rebounds, two assists and a block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 win over the Nets.
Young Brooklyn center Jarrett Allen was simply no match for Drummond on the glass, and the 25-year-old got off to a roaring start in his quest to repeat as the NBA's rebounding champ. He's averaged at least 13 boards a game for five straight seasons, and Drummond looks like he'll have no difficulty making it six straight in 2018-19.
Blake Griffin DET PF
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Drops team-high 26 in Opening Night win8m ago
Griffin scored 26 points (8-17 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-11 FT) while adding eight rebounds and six assists in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 win over the Nets.
It was a remarkably mistake-free performance from the 29-year-old, as Griffin committed only one turnover and no fouls on the night. His numbers were slightly disappointing last season after being traded to Detroit from the Clippers, but if he can stay healthy, Griffin could be poised for a strong bounce-back campaign.
Devin Harris DAL PG
Mavericks' Devin Harris: Won't return Wednesday10m ago
Harris (hamstring) won't return to Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Suns, Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Harris was only on the court for six minutes prior to going down with the injury, going scoreless (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), with one assist. His injury is being listed as a left hamstring strain and he'll now focus on getting healthy ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Timberwolves. Tentatively consider Harris questionable for that contest until additional updates are provided following practice in the coming few days.
Spencer Dinwiddie BKN PG
Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Pours in 23 off bench in loss to Pistons12m ago
Dinwiddie scored 23 points (10-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while adding six assists, four rebounds and a steal in 32 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 103-100 loss to the Pistons.
He ended up seeing more court time than starter D'Angelo Russell, and Dinwiddie led the Nets in assists on the night as a result. The 25-year-old is coming off the best season of his NBA career to date, but with Russell healthy and still considered the club's point guard of the future, Dinwiddie could be hard pressed to match his 2017-18 production.
Nikola Mirotic NO PF
Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Posts 30 points, 10 boards in Wednesday's win14m ago
Mirotic poured in 30 points (11-20 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, and three assists in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 131-112 win over the Rockets.
Mirotic started alongside Anthony Davis and picked up right where he left off last season, scorching the Rockets with six threes en route to an efficient double-double. Boasting the speed to defend most perimeter-oriented players and the size to cover most bigs, Mirotic fits seamlessly next to both Davis and Julius Randle.
Pat Maroon STL LW
Blues' Patrick Maroon: Racks up penalty minutes in loss17m ago
Maroon tallied seven penalty minutes and failed to record a point in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens.
Maroon was largely ineffective Wednesday, apart from a causing an early-game stir by dropping the gloves with Habs defenseman, Jordie Benn. On the season, Maroon has tallied three assists and posted a minus-five rating. Perpetually limited due to injury, it's probably best to avoid the 30-year-old veteran when rounding out fantasy lineups.
Carey Price MON G
Canadiens' Carey Price: Solid in return1h ago
Price made 23 saves in his return to action Wednesday, in a 3-2 win over the Blues.
Appearing in his first game since missing time with the flu, Price was solid and seems to be re-discovering the elite form he's been without, dating back to last season. It wasn't one of his busier nights, considering St. Louis managed just three shots in the game's opening frame. Expect Price to be in net Saturday when the Canadiens travel to Ottawa for a battle with the Senators.
Charles Hudon MON LW
Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Notches one assist1h ago
Hudon tallied one assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over St. Louis.
Hudon logged 10:09 of ice time, the fewest among Montreal forwards. However, the Quebec native saw over three minutes of power-play time, able to pick up an assist with the man advantage while also leading his team with three hits. Despite the lack of ice time being afforded to him, if Hudon continues seeing time on the power play, points could find him with more regularity than originally anticipated.
Mike Reilly MON D
Canadiens' Mike Reilly: Two-point night1h ago
Reilly recorded a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Blues.
The 25-year-old American blueliner entered Wednesday's contest playing some of the best hockey of his career. With Reilly having managed only one assist prior to this multi-point showing against St. Louis, his owners were undoubtedly getting a tad frustrated at the lack of point production. After being shutout the first four games of the young campaign, Reilly has now tallied three points in his last two games.
Nick Ritchie ANA LW
Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Inks three-year deal1h ago
Ritchie signed a three-year contract with the Ducks on Wednesday. Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports that the deal will net him $1.533 million annually.
Ritchie missed the beginning of the season with the contract situation still unresolved, but it appears he and the Ducks have put that issue to bed. While he's not in the lineup Wednesday, there's a good chance the 22-year-old winger will be back in action Saturday against the Golden Knights.
Max Domi MON C
Canadiens' Max Domi: Pots first goal as a Hab1h ago
Domi scored one goal Wednesday, in a 3-2 win over St. Louis.
Domi's first-period marker was by all accounts a weak one, beating Blues netminder, Jake Allen, along the ice with a backhand on a partial breakaway. The 23-year-old entered Wednesday's contest with four helpers in five games, but rather than continuing to lend a helping hand, the Canadiens' forward opted to contribute in the goal column instead. With five points in six games, Domi is enjoying early success with his new team.
