A'Shawn Robinson DET DT
Lions' A'Shawn Robinson: Questionable for Thursday9h ago
Robinson (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.
Robinson was a limited practice participant this week to earn the questionable tag after sitting out Sunday's game against the Panthers. Ricky Jean Francois would be set for increased snaps as a rotational defensive tackle should Robinson be sidelined.
Leon Hall OAK DB
Raiders' Leon Hall: Sits out practice Wednesday9h ago
Hall (back) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.
Hall played only four defensive snaps Sunday against the Cardinals, as he exited with the back injury. Gareon Conley and Nick Nelson split snaps behind top cornerback Daryl Worley in Sunday's game, which could continue if Hall is forced to miss some time.
Taron Johnson BUF CB
Bills' Taron Johnson: Limited Wednesday9h ago
Johnson (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Johnson has been practicing on a partial basis all week as the Bills return from bye, so it seems like there's a decent chance he'll be able to suit up for this week's game against Jacksonville. Johnson has performed well as a fourth-round rookie, seeing limited snaps in a depth role, so if he is able to return, it makes a good defense that much stronger.
Dwayne Harris OAK WR
Raiders' Dwayne Harris: Practices fully Wednesday9h ago
Harris (chest/foot) was a full participant at Wednesday's practices.
Harris sustained the injuries in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, but his quick return to practice confirms them as minor issues. Brandon LaFell (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve, while Martavis Bryant (knee) and Jordy Nelson continue to battle knee injuries, leaving Seth Roberts, Marcell Ateman and Harris as the Raiders' top healthy wide receivers. With that said, the 31-year-old has been minimally involved offensively this season, and stepping into a significant role seems unlikely.
Ryan Kelly IND C
Colts' Ryan Kelly: Dealing with MCL sprain9h ago
Kelly was diagnosed with an MCL sprain in his left knee Wednesday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News reports.
Kelly underwent an MRI Wednesday to determine the extent of the injury, although he is set to receive a second opinion in the coming days to narrow down his recovery timetable. For now the 25-year-old appears to have avoided a much more severe ACL injury but has nonetheless been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Evan Boehm is set to take over at center for his first career NFL start in Kelly's stead.
Jordan Whitehead TB FS
Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Dealing with concussion10h ago
Whitehead was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a concussion, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Whitehead had eight tackles (seven solo) in last Sunday's game against the Giants, but apparently sustained a concussion as he missed 11 defensive snaps and didn't record a stat in the fourth quarter. The Buccaneers signed Josh Shaw on Tuesday to bolster their depth at safety, but it remains unclear if that's an indication of Whitehead's potential status for this weekend.
Danny Farquhar CHW RP
Danny Farquhar: Clears final hurdle8h ago
Farquhar (head) has been medically cleared to play baseball again, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.
This is exciting news for Farquhar, whose future was uncertain after he suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm in April that left him in intensive care for weeks and proved life-threatening. The 31-year-old, who owns a career 3.93 ERA and 1.26 WHIP across 272.1 major-league innings, noted that multiple teams have expressed interest in signing him since he was outrighted off the White Sox's 40-man roster and became a free agent in October.
Jose Miguel Fernandez LAA 1B
Jose Miguel Fernandez: Granted release14h ago
Fernandez was granted his unconditional release by the Angels on Wednesday.
Fernandez becomes a free agent after playing in 36 games for Los Angeles this past season. During those outings, he hit .267/.309/.388 with two home runs and 11 RBI while playing primarily at first base. The 30-year-old will look to latch on as a depth piece with another organization this winter.
Alex Meyer LAA SP
Angels' Alex Meyer: Designated for assignment14h ago
Meyer (shoulder) was designated for assignment by the Angels on Wednesday.
Meyer was cast off the 40-man roster in order to make room for the recently-acquired Dillon Peters, who was traded Wednesday from Miami in exchange for Tyler Stevens. Looking ahead, Meyer's status for spring training remains uncertain after he suffered another setback in early November. The 28-year-old has yet to be cleared to resume throwing, though he's expected to start back up near mid-December if everything goes according to plan.
Dillon Peters MIA SP
Angels' Dillon Peters: Heads to Angels15h ago
The Marlins will trade Peters to the Angles in exchange for Tyler Stevens, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
Peters was designated for assignment by Miami earlier this week as part of the Rule 5 roster crunch. He is expected to serve as rotation depth for Los Angeles and will likely ride the shuttle back and forth as needed since he's got minor-league options remaining. Across seven game (five starts) for the Marlins in 2018, he logged a 7.16 ERA and 1.77 WHIP with a 17:15 K:BB in 27.2 innings.
Raisel Iglesias CIN RP
Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Signs three-year extension15h ago
Iglesias inked a three-year contract extension that will take him through the 2021 season with the Reds.
Iglesias had previously signed a seven-year deal with the team back in 2014, but a provision allowed him the opportunity to opt out of that deal, which led both parties to an agreement on this extension. Instead of heading to arbitration the next three years, Iglesias has a secure contract until he becomes a free agent following the 2021 campaign. In 2018, he appeared in 66 games, posting a superb 2.38 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 30 saves and 80 strikeouts in 72 innings of relief. The 28-year-old should be considered a quality asset for the coming years after converting 89 percent (64-of-72) of his save chances the past three seasons. Per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the closer's deal is worth $24.125 million over the next three years.
Tim Locastro NYY 2B
Yankees' Tim Locastro: Dealt to Yankees16h ago
Locastro was traded from the Dodgers to the Yankees on Wednesday in exchange for Drew Finley and cash considerations.
Locastro played in 18 games for the Dodgers this past season with most of his opportunities coming as a pinch runner in September. He spent the vast majority of the year at Triple-A Oklahoma City, hitting .279/.389/.409 with four home runs, 25 RBI and 18 stolen bases. Look for him to begin the 2019 season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre serving as outfield depth.
Langston Galloway DET SG
Pistons' Langston Galloway: Hits four triples Wednesday1h ago
Galloway had 13 points (4-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, and one assist in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 126-124 loss to the Rockets.
Galloway scored 13 points in Wednesday's two-point loss, hitting double-digits for the eighth time in his last nine games. Galloway offers basically nothing outside of scoring and threes but has drained 24 triples across that same eight-game period. He is merely a deep league player at this stage but could be worth a shot as a three-point streaming option if required in standard leagues.
Reggie Jackson DET PG
Pistons' Reggie Jackson: Struggles in Wednesday's loss1h ago
Jackson tallied just nine points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 126-124 loss to Houston.
Jackson failed to find any rhythm Wednesday, managing very little production anywhere outside of a pair of steals. Jackson certainly has the ability to score the ball on occasions but his lack of assists from the point guard position is a real negative. He is averaging just 3.9 for the season and 2.5 across the last week. While he remains a standard league player, his upside is limited so owners should temper their expectations.
Andre Drummond DET C
Pistons' Andre Drummond: Another 20 point effort Wednesday1h ago
Drummond totaled 20 points (8-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-9 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 126-124 loss to Houston.
Drummond topped 20 points for the sixth time in his last seven games despite some foul trouble. Drummond is certainly providing more offense so far this season, currently averaging 19.2 points per game. His rebounds are holding steady at about 16.2 per game, however, his free-throw efficiency has dipped from last season. He is down about four percent from 2017-18 meaning there is some scope for improvement. Drummond is a fun player to own and can almost single-handedly win you your rebounds category on any given week. If you can handle the hit to your free-throw percentages, then he is a must own player absolutely everywhere.
Blake Griffin DET PF
Pistons' Blake Griffin: Drops 37 points Wednesday2h ago
Griffin finished with 37 points (9-21 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 13-15 FT), 11 rebounds, and four assists in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 126-124 loss to the Rockets.
Griffin produced another gem Wednesday, recording his third consecutive double-double. He also scored 30 points for the second time in his last three games but did fail to record any defensive stats. The six triples was a career-high although Griffin did record nine turnovers. He is putting up some tasty numbers across the board which may blind many of his owners to his high turnover rate.
James Ennis III HOU SF
Rockets' James Ennis: Plays 32 minutes in victory2h ago
Ennis tallied 14 points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, one steal, and one block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 126-124 victory over Detroit.
Ennis topped double-figures for the third time in his last four games, adding three triples and a pair of defensive stats. It appears as though Ennis is going to see decent playing time on a nightly basis, although he doesn't offer the most attractive fantasy game. He could be used for streaming purposes at a pinch, but really belongs in deeper formats only.
Ben Simmons PHI PG
76ers' Ben Simmons: Continues to shine on offense2h ago
Simmons scored 22 points (9-18 FG, 4-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and a steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 121-120 win over the Pelicans.
The second-year player continues to be a streaky scorer, but right now he's hot, averaging 21.3 points a game over his last three to go along with his typically excellent 10,0- boards, 8.3 assists and 1.3 steals during that brief stretch. Simmons still doesn't have a useful three-point shot, but he's athletic and skilled enough to find open space and attack the rim when he gets aggressive with the ball -- something which should occur more frequently as he matures.
Austin Wagner LA LW
Kings' Austin Wagner: Scores first two NHL points1h ago
Wagner recorded a goal and a helper in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Colorado.
In his 10th career NHL contest, Wagner notched his first goal and first assist in the same night. The 2015 fourth round pick will likely bounce between the NHL and AHL levels for most of the season.
Matt Luff LA RW
Kings' Matt Luff: Notches two points1h ago
Luff scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Colorado.
Luff scored his first NHL goal against St. Louis on Monday and followed it up with an even better night against the Avalanche. The rookie winger has shown offensive upside, scoring 12 points in just nine games at the AHL level this season.
Peter Budaj LA G
Kings' Peter Budaj: Allows goal in relief1h ago
Budaj stopped 2-of-3 shots in relief during Wednesday's 7-3 loss to the Avalanche.
Cal Petersen got lit up for six goals before getting the hook in favor of Budaj. In three appearances this season, Budaj has allowed six goals on just 33 shots.
Calvin Petersen LA G
Kings' Cal Petersen: Drilled for six goals1h ago
Petersen yielded six goals on 31 shots before being pulled in the third period of Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Colorado.
The rookie netminder recorded his first career shutout against the Blues on Monday, but things quickly turned sour. Even with the brutal performance Wednesday, Petersen owns a 2.75 GAA and .922 save percentage, taking over No. 1 goalie duties while Jonathan Quick (knee) is out.
Vladislav Kamenev COL C
Avalanche's Vladislav Kamenev: First multi-point game1h ago
Kamenev scored a power-play goal and tallied an assist in Wednesday's 7-3 win over Los Angeles.
The Russian rookie has two goals and five points in 16 games this season. His bottom-six role limits his potential for now, but Kamenev will have more value in dynasty formats.
Tyson Barrie COL D
Avalanche's Tyson Barrie: Scores second goal2h ago
Barrie scored a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Kings.
Barrie scored 14 goals last season, so his slow start in that department is disappointing. However, he still has a strong 19 points in 21 games. The 27-year-old is averaging just 20:38 of ice time compared to 22:42 last yer.
