Kendell Beckwith TB LB
Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Won't play Sunday1h ago
Coach Dirk Koetter said Friday that Beckwith (ankle) will not play Week 11, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Beckwith continues to manage his recovery from a fractured ankle sustained during a car accident this offseason, and will not make his 2018 debut Week 11. With fellow linebacker Lavonte David (knee) also ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, second-year pro Riley Bullough could be in line for a significant uptick in defensive snaps.
Mychal Kendricks SEA LB
Seahawks' Mychal Kendricks: Officially permitted to practice1h ago
Kendricks (suspension) is permitted to participate in team practices and meetings as of Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkreports.
Kendricks is still unable to take the field or travel with the Seahawks, but this is a step towards playing. The veteran linebacker received an eight-game suspension on Oct. 2, and will be eligible to return to the field on Dec. 10 against the Vikings. Kendricks pleaded guilty to insider trading and is still scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 24, so his long term position in Seattle will remain in serious jeopardy even if he resumes playing.
Haloti Ngata PHI DT
Eagles' Haloti Ngata: Listed as questionable2h ago
Ngata (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Ngata is nursing a knee injury of undisclosed severity, and his status for Week 11 remains uncertain. If the veteran is ultimately unable to suit up, the Eagles will be left with T.Y. McGill as their only healthy right defensive tackle for Sunday's tilt against New Orleans.
Lane Johnson PHI T
Eagles' Lane Johnson: Questionable for Sunday2h ago
Johnson (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Johnson is still recovering from a Grade 2 MCL sprain sustained Week 8, and his availability for Sunday's tilt against the Saints is murky at best. The star lineman will likely be a game-time decision Week 11. If Johnson is unable to suit up expect Halapoulivaati Vaitai to once again slot into the starting lineup.
Rodney Gunter ARI DE
Cardinals' Rodney Gunter: Expected to play Sunday2h ago
Coach Steve Wilks said that Gunter (personal) is expected to play during Sunday's game against the Raiders despite being listed as questionable, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Gunter was understandably absent from practice all week due to the death of his father, but is reportedly on track to suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders. If the defensive tackle is able to play, expect him to serve his usual rotational role.
Nick Nelson OAK CB
Raiders' Nick Nelson: Questionable for Sunday2h ago
Nelson (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
Nelson was listed as a limited participant in Friday's walk-through practice due to an illness. The depth cornerback's Week 11 availability likely hinges on how quickly he recovers from his undisclosed illness, so Nelson could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals. With Gareon Conley (groin) also listed as questionable, the Raiders could call upon Leon Hall to slot in at right cornerback.
Kenley Jansen LAD RP
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Heart surgery on tap2h ago
Jansen will undergo hearty surgery Nov. 26 and is expected to be fully recovered prior to spring training, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Jansen will require another procedure on his heart after being sidelined with an irregular heartbeat for a couple weeks in August. The 31-year-old previously underwent surgery -- atrial fibrillation -- on his heart six years ago, and this is expected to be the same exact procedure. Jansen wound up returning to the mound earlier than doctors anticipated in late August, and did a fine job helping the Dodgers make it back to the World Series. If all goes according to plan, he will be fully recovered in 2-to-8 weeks, well before spring training commences.
Steve Pearce BOS 1B
Red Sox's Steve Pearce: Returns to Boston3h ago
Pearce signed a one-year, $6.25 million contract with Boston on Friday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.
It shouldn't come as any surprise that the Red Sox wanted Pearce back in the fold after he claimed World Series MVP honors for his role in the Fall Classic. Pearce was a valuable contributor for Boston ever since coming over in a trade from Toronto in late June, and finished the regular season with a slash line of 284/.378/.512 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI in 76 games. He figures to serve as a platoon partner to Mitch Moreland next season, so look for Pearce in the lineup when a southpaw opposes the Red Sox.
Jeff Mathis ARI C
Rangers' Jeff Mathis: Inks deal with Texas23h ago
Mathis has agreed to a two-year contract with the Rangers, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Mathis spent the last two seasons with the Diamondbacks, although he appeared in just 129 games over that span. He's certainly experienced struggles at the dish of late (.200/.272/.272 slash line last season) but adds value behind the plate. Mathis figures to have a shot to win the backup job behind Isiah Kiner-Falefa in spring training.
Mookie Betts BOS RF
Red Sox's Mookie Betts: Named AL MVP1d ago
Betts was named the 2018 American League Most Valuable Player on Thursday.
The awards keep piling up for Betts, who was also honored with a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger for his stellar 2018 campaign. The 26-year-old was incredible across the board for the World Series champs, joining the 30-30 club (32 homers, 30 stolen bases) while leading the majors in batting average (.346), slugging percentage (.640) and runs scored (129). Betts has solidified himself as one of the bonafide five-tool superstars in the league.
Christian Yelich MIL LF
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Brings home NL MVP honors1d ago
Yelich was named the 2018 National League Most Valuable Player on Thursday.
Yelich, who received all but one first-place vote, was deservedly rewarded for his breakout season in 2018. In his first year with the Brewers, the 26-year-old led the National League in batting average (.326) and OPS (1.000) while also notching personal bests in homers (36), stolen bases (22), RBI (110) and runs scored (118). An impressive stretch run -- during which he hit .370/.508/.804 with 10 homers, 34 RBI, seven stolen bases and a 16:24 K:BB in September (27 games) -- ultimately helped Yelich beat out NL Central-rival Javy Baez for the award (while also helping the Brewers reach the NLCS).
Ryan O'Rourke BAL RP
Mets' Ryan O'Rourke: Inks minor-league deal with Mets1d ago
O'Rourke signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training. O'Rourke was limited to just 14.1 innings across four minor-league levels in 2018 while working his way back from Tommy John surgery. The veteran left-hander last pitched in the majors for the Twins in 2016, when he posted a 3.96 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB across 25 innings of relief.
Naz Mitrou-Long UTA SG
Naz Mitrou-Long: Nearly registers triple-double13m ago
Mitrou-Long tallied 20 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in the 113-104 win over South Bay on Thursday.
Mitrou-Long did have seven turnovers, but its hard to be discouraged when the shooting guard nearly registered a triple-double. It's worth nothing that 15 of Mitrou-Long's team-high 20 points came from beyond the arc, but he's still a reliable scorer even if the long range shot isn't falling.
Thon Maker MIL PF
Bucks' Thon Maker: To see increase in playing time21m ago
Maker is set for a larger role with John Henson (wrist) ruled out, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Maker will slot into Henson's spot off the bench for a significant stretch with Henson set to undergo wrist surgery. Maker has appeared in six games this season and is averaging 5.5 points along with 3.2 rebounds per contest.
Johnathan Williams LAL PF
Johnathan Williams: Tallies double-double despite loss21m ago
Williams registered 24 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in the loss Thursday to Salt Lake City.
Williams has seen minutes with the Lakers and the team's G League affiliate in the past three weeks, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the center dominated his opposition Thursday. He's unlikely to see a ton of minutes on any given night in the G League considering Williams could be soak up time at the NBA level, but when he's playing he is certainly a relevant fantasy asset in most formats.
Wesley Johnson NO SF
Pelicans' Wesley Johnson: Coming off bench Friday1h ago
Johnson will come off the bench Friday against the Knicks, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
With Elfrid Payton (ankle) returning to the starting five, Johnson will be pushed back to his usual bench role. He has scored in double-digits just once this season.
Elfrid Payton NO PG
Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Will return Friday1h ago
Payton (ankle) will start at point guard for Friday's matchup with the Knicks, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Payton will return from a nine game absence caused by an ankle sprain. Given his length of time on the sidelines he will presumably worked back into the swing of things a bit. He will rejoin Jrue Holiday in the Pelicans' backcourt.
Peter Budaj LA G
Kings' Peter Budaj: Ready for backup duty17m ago
Budaj (illness) will serve as the backup goalie for Friday's game versus the Blackhawks, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.
This bodes well for Budaj's chances to start Saturday against the Predators while Cal Petersen will get Friday's start. Budaj struggled in his only start of the year, allowing four goals on 19 shots to a strong Toronto team.
Trevor Lewis LA RW
Kings' Trevor Lewis: Breaks foot in practice25m ago
Lewis fractured his foot during Friday's morning skate and is considered week-to-week, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.
Lewis' injury leaves the Kings with just 12 healthy forwards, so Michael Amadio will slot in for Friday's game versus the Blackhawks. It's been a slow year for Lewis, as he has two goals, an assist and an ugly minus-9 rating through 17 games. Expect the 31-year-old do be placed on injured reserve.
Dylan Gambrell SJ C
Sharks' Dylan Gambrell: Promoted to top level1h ago
The Sharks promoted Gambrell to the active roster from AHL San Jose on Friday.
Gambrell has gotten off to a hot start with the AHL squad, notching six points through seven games with the Barracuda. He had drawn into one contest with the Sharks this season and could have another opportunity to do so Saturday against the Blues.
Kristian Vesalainen WPG LW
Jets' Kristian Vesalainen: Jumps to big club1h ago
Vesalainen was recalled by the Jets on Friday, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports.
Vesalainen was considering heading back to Europe to play in the KHL since he has an out clause in his NHL contract, but he'll stick around after the call up. According to Orlesky, the 19-year-old winger can still head to Europe if he's reassigned. A first-round pick in 2017, Vesalainen has three goals and eight points with AHL Manitoba this year. His next chance to play with the Jets could be Friday against the Sabres, and it appears he'll join the team for their upcoming road trip starting Monday in Vancouver.
Rourke Chartier SJ C
Sharks' Rourke Chartier: Sent to bus league2h ago
The Sharks assigned Chartier to AHL San Jose on Friday.
Chartier has only scored one goal while averaging 9:24 of ice time in 13 appearances with the big club this campaign, so this move won't affect any fantasy rosters. The 22-year-old pivot will return to a prominent role with AHL San Jose, where he'll remain for the foreseeable future.
Josh Archibald ARI RW
Coyotes' Josh Archibald: Hit with two-game suspension2h ago
Archibald has been suspended for two games for delivering an illegal check to the head of Nashville's Ryan Hartman during Thursday's 2-1 win over the Predators.
Archibald only received a two-minute minor for the hit during Thursday's contest, which may have factored into the NHL Department of Player Safety's decision to hand him a multi-game suspension. The 26-year-old winger will be eligible to return next Friday against Colorado.
