D.J. Alexander SEA LB
Seahawks' D.J. Alexander: Sitting out Sunday37m ago
D.J. Alexander (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.
Alexander has played just one defensive snap this season compared to 42 on special teams, so fantasy owners shouldn't be losing sleep over Alexander's absence. Expect Michael Wilhoite to continue to serve as the main relief linebacker.
Alex Collins BAL RB
Ravens' Alex Collins: Piles up yards in garbage time38m ago
Alex Collins had nine carries for 82 yards in Sunday's 44-7 loss to the Jaguars in London.
Collins got a couple carries in the first quarter but piled up nearly all his yardage in garbage time. He's a name to watch as a struggling Baltimore offense seeks any potential form of explosiveness, though it doesn't seem the Baltimore Ravens are quite ready to ditch Terrance West or Javorius Allen. The three-way timeshare likely will continue Week 4 against the Steelers.
DeMarco Murray TEN RB
Titans' DeMarco Murray: Listed as active Sunday38m ago
DeMarco Murray (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
Murray is out there if you need him Sunday, but it remains to be seen if he'll handle his usual workload, with Derrick Henry on hand, healthy and coming off a strong effort in Week 2. With that in mind, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com indicates that while Murray is expected to start at running back for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, there "should still be a lot of Henry" on tap in Week 3.
Terence Garvin SEA OLB
Seahawks' Terence Garvin: Gearing up for Sunday's game41m ago
Terence Garvin (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans.
After missing Week 2, Garvin will return to his starting role at outside linebacker. The 26-year-old recorded three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Week 1, and he'll have to battle against a strong offensive line in Tennessee.
Javorius Allen BAL RB
Ravens' Javorius Allen: Shut down in London1h ago
Javorius Allen gained 15 yards on eight carries and 13 yards on five receptions (six targets) in Sunday's 44-7 loss to the Jaguars in London.
Allen led the Baltimore backfield with 13 touches, outpacing both Terrance West (six) and Alex Collins (nine), the latter of whom piled up work in garbage time. Collins did have a couple carries in the first quarter, while Allen didn't get a touch until the five-minute mark of the second frame. Though his role as the primary pass-catching back should remain secure while Danny Woodhead (hamstring) is sidelined, Allen seems to be stuck in a three-way timeshare for carries. The Baltimore backfield increasingly is shaping up as one that's best avoided.
Jimmy Graham SEA TE
Seahawks' Jimmy Graham: Active in Week 31h ago
Jimmy Graham (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Tennessee.
Graham didn't inspire confidence in his ability to play with back-to-back absences Wednesday and Thursday. That said, he turned in a full practice Friday, which was followed by a vote of confidence from head coach Pete Carroll. Per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, Graham was seen running during a pregame workout and will now look to produce against the Titans' 20th-ranked pass defense (230.5 yards per game).
Jose Abreu CHW 1B
White Sox's Jose Abreu: Out with sore shin44m ago
Jose Abreu is out of Sunday's lineup due to shin soreness, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
A foul ball hit Abreu's shin during Saturday's game and he's feeling some residual soreness as a result. Manager Rick Renteria said it's possible that Abreu will sit out Monday as well to avoid further aggravating the injury. If he does end up resting Monday, Matt Davidson would be the likely candidate to fill in at first base.
Joe Panik SF 2B
Giants' Joe Panik: Sidelined with elbow soreness1h ago
Joe Panik -- who is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers -- is dealing with a sore right elbow, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Panik was struck on his right elbow during an at-bat in Saturday's contest and was subsequently withheld from the starting lineup Sunday and he's dealing with some lingering soreness. We'll have to wait and see if he's able to suit up for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Justin Turner LAD 3B
Dodgers' Justin Turner: Will rejoin lineup Monday1h ago
Justin Turner (thumb) took swings in the batting cage Sunday and will rejoin the starting lineup Monday against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Turner was held out of the lineup Sunday with his right thumb contusion, but manager Dave Roberts confirmed that the third baseman would be ready to suit back up Tuesday. He should be deployed in fantasy lineups with confidence upon his return.
Carlos Gonzalez COL RF
Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez: Heads to bench Sunday1h ago
Carlos Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Gonzalez is slashing a ridiculous .328/.461/.705 during the month of September, but has come up hitless in the first three games of the Colorado Rockies ' series against the Padres. Manager Bud Black will give the veteran right fielder the day off with Gerardo Parra filling in at right field, with Ian Desmond in left and Mark Reynolds joining the lineup at first base.
Jonathan Lucroy COL C
Rockies' Jonathan Lucroy: Gets day off Sunday1h ago
Jonathan Lucroy is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
Lucroy will be granted a day off after starting each of the team's past eight contests. The 31-year-old produce a trio of three-hit games over that stretch and is hitting a respectable .286 during September. He'll be replaced by Tony Wolters behind the plate Sunday.
Yasiel Puig LAD RF
Dodgers' Yasiel Puig: Out of lineup Sunday1h ago
Yasiel Puig (ankle) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Puig tweaked his ankle on the final play of Saturday's game and will be withheld from the starting lineup a day later. Despite the minor injury, manager Dave Roberts announced that Puig is being held out of the lineup as punishment for his base-running error Saturday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Alex Len PHO C
Suns' Alex Len: Officially signs qualifying offer1h ago
Alex Len officially signed his one-year, $4.2 million qualifying offer with the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
After attempting to work out an extension with the Suns throughout the offseason, Len was never able to get an offer that he felt he deserved. He'll instead sign a one-year qualifying offer and will bank on receiving more interest as an unrestricted free agent next year. Look for Len to spend the upcoming season behind Tyson Chandler at center, though with Alan Williams going down with a partially torn meniscus earlier this month, Len should be able to surpass the 15.1 minutes per game he averaged a season ago.
Nemanja Bjelica MIN F
Timberwolves' Nemanja Bjelica: Returns to practice14h ago
Nemanja Bjelica (foot) returned to practice Friday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He did well. He did contact. He did almost everything today," said head coach Tom Thibodeau.
Bjelica underwent surgery back in March to address a break in his left foot and was limited to non-contact work in the weeks leading up to training camp. He'll likely be eased back into action during practice and preseason games, but this is a positive sign that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season.
Enes Kanter OKC C
Thunder's Enes Kanter: Sent to Knicks in trade for Carmelo Anthony1d ago
Enes Kanter was sent to the Knicks alongside Doug McDermott in a trade for Carmelo Anthony on Saturday, Adrian Wojnawrowski of ESPN reports.
With this trade to the Knicks, Kanter has the potential to become the starting center, competing with Willy Hernangomez and Joakim Noah. He could also see some time at power forward, backing up Kristaps Porzingis. In his final season with the Oklahoma City Thunder , Kanter averaged 14.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in 21.3 minutes per game across 72 games.
Doug McDermott OKC F
Knicks' Doug McDermott: Sent to New York in trade for Carmelo Anthony1d ago
Doug McDermott has been sent to New York, alongside Enes Kanter, in exchange for Carmelo Anthony, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
McDermott spent just 22 games with the Thunder after being traded from the Bulls, and averaged 9.0 points, and 2.7 rebounds in 2016-17 across his time with both teams. In his three seasons, he has been impressive as a deep threat and as a scorer, but lacks defensively. With the New York Knicks , he may see a bigger role, as he'll face much less competition for playing time than he would have with Oklahoma City in 2017-18. There will likely be more updates on his role in the Knicks rotation going forward.
Carmelo Anthony NY F
Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Traded to Oklahoma City1d ago
The New York Knicks have agreed to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Thunder for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott, and a future draft pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
It has been long expected that Anthony would be traded, but it is a surprise that Oklahoma City is where he will finally be traded to. With the recent acquisition of Paul George, he will likely see time at both small forward and power forward, as he did in New York. The 13 year veteran will add not only experience, but another strong scoring option to play around with. While his production will likely take a small hit due to the offensive threats of Russell Westbrook and Paul George around him, it shouldn't be forgotten that Anthony averaged 22.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in 34.3 minutes per game in 74 appearances in his final year with the Knicks.
Alan Williams PHO F
Suns' Alan Williams: Suffers partially torn meniscus2d ago
Alan Williams ' initial diagnosis has revealed he suffered a partially torn meniscus, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
Williams' timetable for return likely won't be determined until after his MRI on Saturday, though it's safe to assume he'll be out an extended period. As a result, other big men on the team such as Alex Len, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could all see additional time at center. Though, the actual rotation at the position will probably be hammered out during training camp and the preseason.
Anders Lindback NSH G
Predators' Anders Lindback: Gets Sunday's starting nod1h ago
Anders Lindback will start Sunday's preseason tilt against Columbus, Brooks Bratten of the Nashville Predators ' official site reports.
The big Swede last played in the NHL during the 2015-16 campaign and is hoping a return to Nashville -- where he enjoyed two successful seasons as Pekka Rinne's backup -- will rejuvenate his career. While Lindback is currently toiling as the organization's third or fourth goaltender, it's certainly within the realm of possibility for Lindback to play himself into an NHL role in 2017-18.
C.J. Smith BUF LW
Sabres' C.J. Smith: Cut from camp1h ago
C.J. Smith was cut from the Buffalo Sabres ' camp Sunday, The Buffalo News reports.
Smith appeared in two games last year after wrapping up his NCAA career, notching an assist and averaged 11:32 TOI per game. The versatile forward is older and more mature than his rookie peers, but still needs more experience in the pros. He'll likely spend the entire season with AHL Rochester and make a run at a roster spot next season.
Jacob Josefson BUF C
Sabres' Jacob Josefson: Tabbed as shootout specialist1h ago
Jacob Josefson will be one of the Buffalo Sabres ' top options in the shootout, The Buffalo News reports.
The Sabres were 2-6 in the shootout last year and 6-for-27 in their attempts. Josefson, meanwhile, is 10-for-18 in his career, which will improve Buffalo's chances of winning. Josefson's also versatile enough to play center or wing and move up and down the depth chart with ease. He's slated to be either the third or fourth-line center, and may even see some power play time, but likely won't produce enough to be worth owning in most fantasy formats. Josefson's career high is 14 points.
Andrew Shaw MON C
Canadiens' Andrew Shaw: Surprising participant in practice1h ago
Andrew Shaw (neck) returned to practice Sunday, despite head coach Claude Julien stating that it was "far from guaranteed" the player would be ready for practice Monday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic Montreal reports.
Sunday marked Shaw's first time practicing with teammates since Tuesday, as he's been dealing with soreness in his neck. Shaw's status for Monday's preseason contest against Toronto is unknown, though it wouldn't be surprising to see Montreal err on the side of caution and hold the player out until Wednesday's game, which is also against Toronto.
Jakob Forsbacka Karlss BOS C
Bruins' Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson: Practices Sunday1h ago
Forsbacka-Karlsson (upper body) returned to practice Sunday, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports.
The rookie out of Boston University suffered the injury during Tuesday's preseason contest against Detroit and hadn't been on the ice since that time. While it's certainly encouraging to see Forsbacka-Karlsson back at practice, the Boston Bruins may exercise caution in returning him to game action. The team's next preseason game is Monday against Chicago, and Forsbacka-Karlsson's status should be disclosed before puck-drop.
Anton Stralman TB D
Lightning's Anton Stralman: Making progress towards return1h ago
Anton Stralman (undisclosed) was a full participant in Sunday's practice but will not play in the team's preseason contest with Florida on Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Swedish defenseman was reportedly cleared for contact Friday, so Sunday's development is certainly positive despite the fact that Stralman isn't quite ready for game action. With Opening Night still over 10 days away, expect Stralman to be fully healthy by then.
