    • Julian Edelman NE WR
      Patriots' Julian Edelman: Finds endzone Sunday
      3h ago

      Edelman caught four balls for 54 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Chiefs. He also added a seven-yard carry in a 43-40 victory.

      Edelman only trailed Josh Gordon in targets (seven to nine) Sunday, but the former was the lone recipient of a touchdown pass, resulting in the superior fantasy line. The 32-year-old hasn't lost his status as Tom Brady's preferred short- to mid-range receiving option after serving a four-game suspension. Edelman should continue to be a strong PPR option after racking up 11 receptions (16 targets) in two games since his return.

    • Rob Gronkowski NE TE
      Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Finishes strong
      3h ago

      Gronkowski caught three passes (four targets) for 97 yards in Sunday's 43-40 victory over the Chiefs.

      Gronk was held in check for the majority of the game as the Patriots tried to control the ball on the ground against the Chiefs' high-octane offense. The 29-year-old entered the fourth quarter with just one catch for 16 yards, but he came alive on New England's final two drives with gains of 39 and 42 yards respectively, setting up the eventual game-winning field goal as time expired. Gronkowski didn't appear to suffer a setback to his ankle, but don't be surprised if he carries a questionable tag (as he usually does) heading into Week 7's matchup with the Bears.

    • Travis Kelce KC TE
      Chiefs' Travis Kelce: Gains 61 yards in loss
      3h ago

      Kelce hauled in five of nine targets for 61 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

      Kelce had a solid day at the office, but his stat line paled in comparison to the receiving numbers Tyreke Hill and Kareem Hunt put up. The All-Pro tight end is no longer the top receiving target in Kansas City for the first time in a while, but he has still posted usable fantasy numbers with 462 yards and three touchdowns over the last five weeks. Kelce will look to continue his consistent production against the Bengals on Sunday.

    • Kareem Hunt KC RB
      Chiefs' Kareem Hunt: Huge dual-threat performance
      4h ago

      Hunt carried the ball 10 times for 80 yards and added 105 receiving yards and a touchdown on five receptions in Sunday's 43-40 loss to New England.

      Hunt put his ability as a pass catcher on display on a day where the Chiefs were playing for behind for the entire contest. The majority of the 23-year-old's damage was done on a wheel route where he burned his assignment for a 67-yard score. The 185 combined yards marked a new season high for the dynamic back. Pat Mahomes and Tyreke Hill may dominate the headlines for Kansas City on a weekly basis, but Hunt has proven to be a key cog of this explosive offense with seven touchdowns through six weeks. The sophomore will face a stiff test against the Bengals' dominant defensive line Week 7.

    • Sony Michel NE RB
      Patriots' Sony Michel: Strong run continues
      4h ago

      Michel (knee) toted the rock 24 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 43-40 win over the Chiefs.

      Michel didn't appear to be limited by his nagging knee injury, dominating the backfield touches (24 of 35 non-QB rushes) in an impressive team rushing display. The rookie hit paydirt for the third consecutive week, averaging 22.3 carries and 105.3 yards over that span. The Patriots are notorious for rotating their backfield touches, but Michel has clearly emerged as Bill Belichick's primary early-down and goal-line rusher. The 23-year-old should be heavily involved again to help mitigate an aggresive Chicago pass rush in Week 7.

    • Tyreek Hill KC WR
      Chiefs' Tyreek Hill: Goes off for three scores
      4h ago

      Hill racked up 142 yards and three touchdowns on seven receptions (12 targets) in Sunday's shootout loss to the Patriots.

      Pat Mahomes -- and in turn, Hill -- were held in check in the first half against the Patriots' "bend, but don't break" defense. That strategy only worked for two quarters, as Hill was able to break the top off New England's secondary with three second-half scores, the last of which coming on a 75-yard catch-and-run that tied the game at 40. The 24-year-old's heavy involvement in the passing game (led all Kansas City receivers in catches and targets) coupled with his home-run hitting ability make him one of the most-explosive fantasy options at wide receiver in some time.

    • Chris Sale BOS SP
      Red Sox's Chris Sale: Avoids serious illness
      7h ago

      Manager Alex Cora stated that Sale's illness is "nothing serious" and he's expected to join the team in Houston sometime Monday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

      Sale was admitted to a Boston hospital with a stomach illness Sunday, but after being observed for one night he's expected to rejoin the club. Assuming he doesn't suffer any further setbacks, Sale should remain on schedule to pitch Thursday in Game 5 as planned.

      7h ago

      Eovaldi will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

      Eovaldi put together a quality outing in his first start of the postseason, tossing seven innings while allowing one run and punching out five. With the series tied 1-1, manager Alex Cora will hand Eovaldi the ball in Houston against a stacked Astros lineup.

      Sale was admitted to the hospital due to a stomach illness Sunday, Rob Bradford of WEEI Sports Radio Network reports.

      Sale wasn't at the ballpark for Game 2 of the ALCS against the Astros on Monday after being sent to the hospital. He'll be held overnight for observation and the extent of the illness has yet to be identified. Sale is currently scheduled to pitch Game 5, although that could change if the illness is deemed severe.

      Dodgers' Yasmani Grandal: Will return to lineup for Game 3
      13h ago

      Grandal is expected to start behind the dish for Game 3 of the NLCS against Milwaukee on Monday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

      Manager Dave Roberts was clearly not pleased by Grandal's performance in Game 1, which led to his benching in the second game of the series. Roberts stated that he believes Grandal and starting pitcher Walker Buehler have good chemistry, so he's giving Grandal another chance in a pivotal postseason contest.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Draws Game 4 assignment
      14h ago

      Morton will start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

      Morton was not needed during the Astros' ALDS sweep of the Indians, but with the ALCS being a best-of-7 series, he'll get the start for Game 4. No word has come forth as to who he will face from Boston, however, but he'll have to get through a potent Red Sox offense in his home start Wednesday.

      Astros' Dallas Keuchel: Tabbed as Game 3 starter
      14h ago

      Keuchel will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Red Sox, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

      This wasn't a matter of if, but rather a matter of when. Keuchel will now line up for the first game of the series taking place in Houston, though it's currently unclear who will take the ball for Boston. As things stand now, this would potentially line the southpaw up for a Game 7 assignment should the series go that many games.

      Bridges (elbow) has returned to health, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

      Bridges had been held out of the final three preseason games because of an elbow issue, but he says his elbow feels "100 percent." Now that he's healthy, he figures to compete for playing time on the wing

      Warriors' Draymond Green: Will be restricted for first few games

      Green's minutes will likely be restricted for the "first few games", Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

      Coach Steve Kerr mention after practice Sunday that he will likely have a minutes restriction on Green (knee) for the first few games of the season. It's not clear, however, how severe the restriction will be. Forwards Kevon Looney, Andre Iguodala and Jordan Bell may see more minutes as a result.

      Livingston suffered an undisclosed injury during practice Sunday but will be good to go for the preseason opener Tuesday, Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

      Apparently, Livingston "tweak" something during Sunday's practice making him miss the later scrimmage. Coach Steve Kerr reported though that Livingston will be alright to play in Tuesday's season opener against Oklahoma City.

      Curry took the day off to rehab an undisclosed injury, per reports. The injury, though, is not serious as coach Steve Kerr mentioned that the former NBA MVP will be able to play in the season opener against the Thunder on Tuesday.

      Lee (neck) is "good to go" for the season opener Wednesday, Steve Popper of The Bergen Record reports.

      After dealing with a strained neck basically all preseason long, Lee finally stated that he is good to go for Wednesday's opener against Atlanta. The Western Kentucky product averaged 12.0 points and 2.9 rebounds over 76 games played last year, but turning 33 years old last week, he may end up taking on a lighter role in 2018-19.

      Westbrook (knee) still hasn't been cleared for Tuesday's season opener at Golden State, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

      The Thunder have been extremely cautious with the former NBA MVP and have been "very controlling" of his workouts since Westbrook underwent knee surgery back in September. It's still unknown what his status is heading into the matchup with the Warriors on opening night. If for some reason Westbrook can't play, guards Dennis Schroder and Raymond Felton may see more-than-expected minutes.

    • Brandon Montour ANA D
      Ducks' Brandon Montour: Stagnant in offensive zone
      6h ago

      Montour racked up three hits and a pair of blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Montour hasn't recorded a point since his goal in the Oct. 3 season-opening road win over the Sharks, but the fifth-year rearguard's been skating for about a minute and a half on both the power play and penalty kill to benefit the Ducks. Anaheim's 2014 second-round (55th overall) draft pick signed a two-year contract extension in June; he's entering his prime as a 24-year-old and should see an uptick in offensive production once the Ducks get healthy up front. Currently, seven of their forwards have injury labels, including captain Ryan Getzlaf (lower body), who hasn't played since Oct. 6.

      Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Unable to buy a goal
      6h ago

      Rakell recorded a game-high six shots but failed to score in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Rakell gets an 'A' for effort, as his heavy shot total alone probably made him worth the pick in most DFS contests using the two-game evening slate. However, poolies in season-long setups were burned by the Swede. Rakell has been held pointless in five straight contests after teasing the masses with his one goal, two-assist output to the detriment of the Sharks in the Oct. 3 road opener.

    • Ben Street ANA C
      Ducks' Ben Street: Resurgence continues with clutch goal
      7h ago

      Street came up with the game-tying goal in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Defenseman Josh Manson rifled a shot from the point that Street was able to get some lumber on for his second career goal. Just when we thought Street's career was at a dead end -- he'd been scoreless over 35 career games between three different NHL clubs ahead of this season -- the 31-year-old center has made the uphill climb toward a meaningful fourth-line role with the Ducks. Street is up to three points through six games, and he should continue to see action at the top level since Anaheim is currently dealing with injuries to seven of its forwards.

      Ducks' Adam Henrique: Redirects three shots in road victory
      7h ago

      Henrique blocked three shots in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Henrique was held off the scoresheet here, but he's tallied at least one goal or assist in every other contest to start the season. As an experienced two-way skater, there will almost never be a game where he is blanked in both the scoring and defensive columns, such as hits and blocked shots.

    • Luke Schenn ANA D
      Ducks' Luke Schenn: Frequenting press box
      7h ago

      Schenn was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Ducks coach Randy Carlyle has been playing Schenn in every other game so far. If that trend continues, it will be be difficult to count on the first-round pick (Toronto, 2008) in virtually any type of fantasy league. Schenn specializes in racking up hits and blocked shots -- he finished with 219 and 105 of those, respectively, with Arizona last season -- but the Ducks don't count on him for offense, and neither should you as an owner likely craving those big point totals.

      Brossoit allowed one goal on 43 total shots in Sunday's win over Carolina.

      Brossoit was terrific in relief of Connor Hellebuyck on Sunday, stopping 42 of 43 shots while posting a .977 save percentage. Despite the impressive season debut, it's unlikely he'll carve a significant role considering the presence of the Vezina Trophy finalist from last season.
