Quinton Spain TEN G
Titans' Quinton Spain: Misses practice Thursday12m ago
Spain (shoulder) missed practice Thursday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Spain has still yet to participate in practice this week, putting his status in jeopardy for Sunday's game against the Chargers. His absence would be bad news for one of the league's most inefficient offenses, downgrading an already troubled rushing attack. If Spain is unable to suit up, Corey Levin will likely see the majority of snaps at left guard.
Kenny Vaccaro TEN SS
Titans' Kenny Vaccaro: Limited participant Thursday16m ago
Vaccaro (elbow) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Vaccaro was a limited participant in practice for the second consecutive day, maintaining some hope he'll be able to play Sunday against the Chargers. He's still towards the early end of his original 2-to-4 week timetable, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out if he is unable to participate in a full practice Friday.
Larry Fitzgerald ARI WR
Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald: Finds end zone in loss34m ago
Fitzgerald brought in four of eight targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.
Fitzgerald logged the only touchdown of the game for the Cardinals when he hauled in a four-yard scoring dart from Josh Rosen just before the halfway point of the third period. It was notably the veteran receiver's first trip to the end zone this season, while his 40 receiving yards actually represented his best total since a 76-yard effort against the Redskins in Week 1 with Sam Bradford under center. Fitzgerald does continue to see plenty of targets, with Thursday serving as his second straight game with eight looks. While Rosen's inconsistency is likely to continue wreaking havoc with Fitzgerald's overall production, he remains a fantasy consideration heading into a Week 8 divisional battle against the 49ers.
Christian Kirk ARI WR
Cardinals' Christian Kirk: Notches three grabs in loss39m ago
Kirk brought in three of six targets for 57 yards in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.
Kirk's modest yardage total actually served a team high on the night, a testament to the struggles of Josh Rosen and the Cardinals' passing attack overall. Kirk also logged a team-best 27-yard catch, and he's now posted one reception of over 20 yards in four of the last five games. The 2018 second-round pick's speed affords him plenty of upside, but his production will likely continuing experiencing its fair share of fluctuation considering it's largely tied in to the fortunes of the inconsistent Rosen. Kirk will look to up his numbers when he faces the 49ers in Week 8.
David Johnson ARI RB
Cardinals' David Johnson: Compiles 70 total yards in loss43m ago
Johnson rushed 14 times for 39 yards and brought in all three of his targets for another 31 yards in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday.
On paper, Johnson appeared to have a tantalizing matchup and opportunity for his first true breakout performance versus a Denver defense that had surprisingly been gashed on the ground this season. However, the game script played out much differently, with the Broncos' three-touchdown first quarter quickly putting an emphasis on the passing game for the Cardinals. Johnson still logged a serviceable 14 carries, but the 25 touches he managed in a Week 4 loss to the Seahawks still serves as his season high. That's a far cry from Johnson's 2016 salad days, when he rivaled Le'Veon Bell for the title of best running back in the league while seeing 377 touches overall. Johnson will look to bounce back from yet another pedestrian outing against the 49ers in Week 8.
Josh Rosen ARI QB
Cardinals' Josh Rosen: Throws pair of pick-sixes in loss1h ago
Rosen completed 21 of 39 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in the Cardinals' 45-10 loss to the Broncos on Thursday. He also rushed once for 14 yards and fumbled on three occasions, losing two and recovering one.
Four days after throwing for a career-high 240 yards against the Vikings, the rookie saw the harshest of downturns Thursday. Rosen's nightmare outing began early, when he was victimized for a pick-six by Todd Davis on the second play of the game. The Broncos struck again later in the period, with Chris Harris, Jr. doing the honors to the tune of a 53-yard scamper into the end zone off Rosen's second pick. In all, the 2018 first-round pick was responsible for a whopping five turnovers, took six sacks and was hit on 11 occasions overall. He'll look dust himself off and bounce back in a Week 8 battle against the division-rival 49ers.
Carlos Correa HOU SS
Astros' Carlos Correa: Hitting cleanup in Game 58h ago
Correa is starting at shortstop and hitting cleanup in Game 5 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Correa is in the midst of a five-game hitting streak -- including a three-hit, two-RBI effort in Game 4 on Wednesday -- prompting manager A.J. Hinch to move the shortstop to the heart of the order after hitting him no higher than sixth through the team's first seven games of the postseason. Correa, who is hitting .280/.419/.440 with a 6:6 K:BB so far this postseason, will face southpaw David Price in this one.
Josh Reddick HOU RF
Astros' Josh Reddick: Situated on bench for Game 58h ago
Reddick is not in the lineup for Game 5 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Reddick is just 3-for-15 (.200) with a homer and two RBI through the first four games of the series, so he'll take a seat for Thursday's potentially decisive game with a lefty in David Price toeing the rubber for the Red Sox. In his absence, the Astros will deploy Tony Kemp, Jake Marisnick and George Springer from left to right in their outfield.
Tyler White HOU 1B
Astros' Tyler White: Remains out for Game 59h ago
White is not in the lineup for Game 5 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White will stick on the bench for a third straight game as Jose Altuve, who is dealing with a balky knee, picks up another start at DH in his place. With White out of the lineup again, Marwin Gonzalez will man second base while Tony Kemp starts in left field.
Mitch Moreland BOS 1B
Red Sox's Mitch Moreland: Joins lineup for Game 59h ago
Moreland is starting at first base and hitting fifth in Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros on Thursday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
This will mark Moreland's first start since suffering a hamstring injuring during Game 2 of the ALDS against the Yankees earlier in the month. The first baseman has appeared as a pinch hitter in each of the first four games of the series, going 1-for-2 with a walk and two RBI. He'll face Justin Verlander in his return to the starting nine.
Eduardo Nunez BOS 2B
Red Sox's Eduardo Nunez: Remains out for Game 59h ago
Nunez (ankle) is not in the lineup for Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros on Thursday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
Rafael Devers will man third base against Justin Verlander in this one as Nunez continues to nurse a right ankle injury he suffered earlier in the series. Through the first four games of the series, Nunez is 1-for-5 with a walk. It's unclear if he'll be available off the bench.
Austin Barnes LAD C
Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Remains in starting lineup for Game 69h ago
Barnes will draw another start behind the plate for Game 6 of the NLCS against Milwaukee on Friday, Jorge Castillo of The Los Angeles Times reports.
This will mark his third straight start in the lineup after catching Rich Hill and Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. The Dodgers have claimed victories in each of the three starts Barnes has made this series, and he's proven to be the security blanket for manager Dave Roberts in light of Yasmani Grandal's costly errors.
Josh Richardson MIA SF
Heat's Josh Richardson: Leads all scorers with 28 points Thursday3m ago
Richardson piled up 28 points (8-21 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five assists, four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 38 minutes during Thursday's 113-112 victory over Washington.
Richardson was once again the focal point on the offensive end, leading the team with 28 points on 21 field-goal attempts. His overall efficiency was not the best but he was able to turn things around from beyond the arc after a rough opening night. After a breakout season in 2017-18, Richardson appears as though he could be in line for an even better campaign based on his two opening efforts. He fell to as low as 90 in some drafts and could once again turn out to be one of the steals of the season.
Rodney McGruder MIA SG
Heat's Rodney McGruder: Scores 20 points Thursday7m ago
McGruder finished with 20 points (7-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, and six assists in 34 minutes during Thursday's 113-112 victory over the Wizards.
McGruder remained in the starting lineup as the Heat ran with a makeshift lineup in the wake of their injury concerns. He rewarded those owners who may have snagged him off waivers with a nice performance including 20 points and six assists. McGruder could have some deeper league value as long he is starting but could return to a bench role at any time. Give him a look if you have a player on the end of your bench with whom you have no personal affiliation.
Otto Porter WAS SF
Wizards' Otto Porter: Defensively dominant in loss11m ago
Porter tallied nine points (3-7 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three steals, and three blocks in 33 minutes during Thursday's 113-112 loss to Miami.
Porter was dynamic on the defensive end, recording a combined six combined blocks and steals while adding 11 rebounds. One point of note was that Porter failed to even attempt a single three-pointer, which is more likely an outlier as opposed to what owners should come to expect. Porter remains one of the more unflashy fantasy options in all formats and should be owned everywhere despite his continued low usage.
Bradley Beal WAS SG
Wizards' Bradley Beal: Scores 20 points in Thursday's narrow loss16m ago
Beal had 20 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-6 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal in 27 minutes during Thursday's 113-112 loss to the Heat.
Beal was in some foul trouble Thursday which limited him to just 27 minutes of playing time. He was solid without being spectacular during his time on the floor which highlights his high floor in all formats. Beal will likely see his assist numbers from last season take a hit with the return of John Wall which slightly limits his overall value. He should still be a third-round type of player and is one of the more consistent performers across the league.
John Wall WAS PG
Wizards' John Wall: Fills the box score in season opener28m ago
Wall finished with 26 points (9-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-10 FT), nine assists, three rebounds, three blocks, and one steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's 113-112 loss to Miami.
Wall hit the ground running in the season opener, leading the way with 26 points to go with nine assists and three blocks. This was a tough loss for the Wizards, falling behind in the final second thanks to a Kelly Olynyk tip-in. Wall looked amazing on the floor, proving once again why he is one of the better shot blocking guards in the league. He may have fallen in a number of drafts due to his injury history and those owners who grabbed him will be hoping he can avoid any further concerns as he looks to bounce back after a somewhat disappointing 2017-18 season.
Jabari Parker CHI PF
Bulls' Jabari Parker: Scores 15 points off the bench Thursday33m ago
Parker produced 15 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 25 minutes during Thursday's 127-108 loss to the 76ers.
Parker played 25 minutes off the bench Thursday and looked decent, at least on the offensive end of the floor. He continues to appear non-committal to any sort of defense which will likely continue to severely cap his fantasy value. Bobby Portis started and was excellent in 33 minutes meaning Parker should remain in a bench role, at least for the foreseeable future. He still has some low-end standard league value but dropping him to pick up a hot free agent would not be the worst move.
Kailer Yamamoto EDM RW
Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Pots first NHL goal Thursday10m ago
Yamamoto scored his first NHL goal in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over Boston.
Yamamoto's second-period tally was just the second Oilers goal this season that didn't feature Connor McDavid. The 2017 first-rounder was expected to be a key source of secondary scoring after a strong preseason, but Yamamoto had been scoreless through his team's first four games before this unforgettable night.
Leon Draisaitl EDM C
Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Pots OT winner Thursday15m ago
Draisaitl scored his second goal of the season to beat the Bruins 3-2 in overtime Thursday.
Draisaitl's overtime winner was assisted by -- you guessed it -- Connor McDavid. The two dynamic centers are usually separated at even strength, but they share the ice on the power play and in overtime situations. Both of Draisaitl's goals this season have come courtesy of a McDavid helper, but the two-time 70-point scorer has the capability to generate a little more offense himself. He'll have to start doing so for the Oilers to become true contenders in the Western Conference.
Jaroslav Halak BOS G
Bruins' Jaroslav Halak: Takes OT loss Thursday23m ago
Halak turned aside 19 of 22 shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Edmonton.
Halak kept out both of Connor McDavid's shots in this one, though the world's best player got the last laugh with two assists, including one on Leon Draisaitl's overtime winner. Boston's backup is 2-0-1 on the young season and remains a strong streaming option whenever he gets the nod.
Cam Talbot EDM G
Oilers' Cam Talbot: Pushes win streak to three26m ago
Talbot made 27 stops to top the Bruins by a 3-2 score in overtime Thursday.
Alarm bells were going off after Talbot dropped his first two starts of the season, but he's bounced back with three consecutive wins, thanks in most part to the offensive exploits of team captain Connor McDavid. Talbot is yet to sit out a game on the young season, and he's expected to be a busy man after logging 140 of a possible 164 starts over the previous two campaigns.
Connor McDavid EDM C
Oilers' Connor McDavid: Casually adds two more points30m ago
McDavid recorded two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over Boston.
Edmonton has 13 goals in five games, and McDavid's scored or assisted on 11 of them. The team has won back-to-back overtime games, and that success in the extra session shouldn't come as a surprise considering the 3-on-3 format of bonus hockey just gives the best player in the world more open ice to work with. McDavid assisted on Leon Draisaitl's game-winner just 37 seconds into overtime, adding to an earlier helper on a Ryan Nugent-Hopkins power-play goal in the second period.
Matthew Benning EDM D
Oilers' Matt Benning: Doubtful against Nashville33m ago
According to coach Todd McLellan, Benning (undisclosed) is considered doubtful for Saturday's matchup with Nashville.
Benning appears poised to miss at least one contest with the undisclosed injury he suffered during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over Boston, so the Oilers will likely turn to Jason Garrison to fill in on their bottom-pairing against the Predators.
