Adrian Clayborn ATL DE
Falcons' Adrian Clayborn: Just one tackle Monday15m ago
Clayborn was held to just one solo tackle against the Seahawks on Monday.
Clayborn posted a monstrous six sacks against the Cowboys in Week 10, but of course that type of performance isn't explicable. His Week 11 matchup was highlighted by one fumble recovery, but it isn't much of a change from most of his outings, as his only game with more than two tackles was his six-sack game.
Johnathan Cyprien TEN SS
Titans' Johnathan Cyprien: Records season-high in tackles1h ago
Cyprien had his best game of the season in Thursday's loss to the Steelers with 10 tackles (six solo).
Cyprien recorded seven tackles (four solo) in Week 1, but subsequently missed the next the next six weeks with a hamstring injury. He was quiet in his first two weeks back, but he appears to be fully recovered after Thursday's effective outing. The 27-year-old strong safety saw 67 defensive snaps (88.0 percent), which was the fourth highest total on the team.
Sheldon Richardson SEA DT
Seahawks' Sheldon Richardson: Season-high in tackles1h ago
Richardson registered six tackles (four solo) and a sack in Monday's loss to the Falcons.
It was one of Richardson's best performances on the year as he registered a season-high in tackles and added his first sack of the year. Through nine games this season he has 23 tackles (14 solo), one sack, one interception and one pass defensed.
Derrick Morgan TEN OLB
Titans' Derrick Morgan: Records another sack in loss1h ago
Morgan picked up his sixth sack of the season in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.
Morgan has now made a mark in the sack department in three consecutive weeks. He also tied a season-high in tackles with three (two solo), as sacks are his main source of production. The 28-year-old outside linebacker logged 64 snaps (84.0 percent) in the game.
D.J. Swearinger WAS FS
Redskins' D.J. Swearinger: Notches another interception1h ago
Swearinger logged his third interception of the season in Sunday's overtime loss to the Saints.
Swearinger now has three picks across the previous two weeks, while he had not recorded any prior to that. The 26-year-old also came one tackle short of a season-high by posting six (five solo) on the day. He was one of four Redskins defenders to see all 71 snaps in the contest.
Stephon Tuitt PIT DE
Steelers' Stephon Tuitt: Sack against Titans1h ago
Tuitt registered three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Thursday's win over the Titans.
Tuitt now has a sack in back to back contests after being hampered by several different injuries to begin the season. He'll look to keep the streak going this Sunday night against a struggling Packers' offense.
Kevin Maitan ATL SS
Kevin Maitan: Eligible to sign in two weeks4h ago
Maitan will be eligible to sign with other MLB teams beginning in two weeks, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Maitan will be allowed to sign elsewhere this offseason after he was declared a free agent by MLB on Tuesday as part of the Braves' punishment for illegal dealings in the international free agent market. Behind Shohei Ohtani -- who isn't even guaranteed to come over in 2018 -- the 17-year-old switch hitter will be the most sought-after international free agent on the market this winter. While he didn't impress in rookie ball last season, he's said to be in significantly better shape heading into 2018 and still carries the potential to provide a plus hit tool and plus-plus raw power. Not many teenage prospects have a fantasy ceiling as high as Maitan's at the moment.
Aaron Judge NYY RF
Yankees' Aaron Judge: Undergoes surgery7h ago
Judge underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Monday to remove loose-body and clean-up cartilage.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, and the good news is that Judge is expected to be ready prior to the start of spring training. The slugging outfielder dealt with some shoulder issues during the second half of last season, and while he tried to downplay the issue, it likely contributed to his drop-off in production after the All-Star break. He still posted an impressive .284/.422/.627 line with 52 homers, 114 RBI and nine stolen bases in 155 games for the Yankees. A fully healthy Judge should be poised for another big year at the plate in 2018.
Kevin Maitan ATL SS
Kevin Maitan: Back on market10h ago
Maitan will be declared a free agent by MLB as part of the Braves' punishment for illegal dealings in the international free agent market, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.
Apparently other prospects could be declared free agents too, but Maitan is the big fish. Teams have been trying to position themselves to sign Shohei Ohtani this offseason, but Maitan, who will be subject to the same financial restrictions, will serve as a solid consolation prize, assuming he's declared eligible to sign this winter. He was in pretty bad physical shape last season, prompting evaluators to say with confidence that he won't be able to stick at shortstop. However, he appears to have diligently worked on his conditioning this offseason, so he should at least be able to handle third base long term. The switch-hitting prodigy did not post impressive numbers last season as a 17-year-old in rookie ball, but he still has the potential to provide a plus hit tool and plus-plus raw power, which puts his fantasy ceiling in rare company among teenage prospects.
Trevor Oaks LAD SP
Dodgers' Trevor Oaks: Added to 40-man roster22h ago
Oaks was added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster Monday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.
To protect Oaks from the Rule 5 draft, the Dodgers added him to their 40-man roster. Oaks fought an oblique injury throughout the season, but pitched 84 innings over 16 games at Triple-A Oklahoma City when healthy. He ended the year with a serviceable 3.64 ERA and 1.25 WHIP.
Ricardo Sanchez ATL SP
Braves' Ricardo Sanchez: Joins 40-man roster23h ago
Sanchez was added to Atlanta's 40-man roster Monday and will be protected from the Rule 5 draft.
Sanchez had a rocky season at High-A Florida. Over 22 games, 21 of them being starts, he struggled to the tune of a 4.95 ERA and 1.63 WHIP. With an abundance of promising arms in their farm system, Atlanta has no reason to rush Sanchez to a higher level, so it could be some time before he starts building much fantasy appeal.
Grant Dayton LAD RP
Braves' Grant Dayton: Claimed off waivers by Atlanta23h ago
Dayton was claimed off waivers by the Braves on Monday.
Before being claimed by Atlanta on Monday, Dayton had been a member of the Dodgers. With a 4.94 ERA and 1.31 WHIP that was built over 29 games (23.2 innings), Dayton had a down year in 2017. Despite last year's struggles, he's shown he has some upside out of the bullpen, as he logged an ERA and WHIP of 2.05 and 0.76, respectively, during the 2016 season. However, Dayton recently underwent Tommy John surgery and is slated to miss the entire 2018 season.
David Nwaba CHI G
Bulls' David Nwaba: Likely out Tuesday vs. Lakers30m ago
Nwaba (ankle) is not expected to play in Tuesday's game against the Lakers, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
While an official designation hasn't been given, Nwaba can be considered doubtful heading into Tuesday's contest. His next opportunity to play will be Wednesday against the Jazz, though the Bulls haven't provided a target date for his return quite yet. With Nwaba out, Denzel Valentine will likely continue to pick up extra minutes off the bench.
Jerian Grant CHI G
Bulls' Jerian Grant: Will come off bench Tuesday1h ago
Grant will play a reserve role in Tuesday's game versus the Lakers, Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports.
Second year guard Kris Dunn will replace Grant in the starting lineup. He is coming off one of his worst games of the season in Sunday's loss to the Suns, while Dunn is coming off a couple of his best games, so it is not surprising to see the Bulls make the switch to one of their offseason acquisitions. It will be Grant's first time coming off the bench this season, but if Dunn continues to play well it is a trend that could continue.
Kris Dunn CHI G
Bulls' Kris Dunn: Will start at point guard Tuesday1h ago
Dunn will get the start at point guard for Tuesday's tilt against the Lakers, Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports.
Dunn is coming off two of the best games of his young career, and will now get his second start of the season. He racked up 19.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.5 assists, and 2.5 steals across 26.7 minutes off the bench in the aforementioned two-game stretch. Jerian Grant will slide to a reserve role as a result of Dunn's emergence in the starting lineup.
Buddy Hield SAC G
Kings' Buddy Hield: Listed as probable for Wednesday2h ago
Hield (ankle) is probable to play in Wednesday's game against the Lakers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
This was the expected designation after Hield was able to put in a full practice Tuesday. If all goes as planned, look for Hield to take on his usual role off the bench on the wing, which should result in a few less minutes for the likes of Garrett Temple, Bogdan Bogdanovich and Malachi Richardson.
Vince Carter SAC G
Kings' Vince Carter: Probable Wednesday vs. Lakers2h ago
Carter (illness) is officially listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Carter was a full participant in practice Tuesday after missing seven games with kidney stones, so it's not all too surprising that he's expected to play. A final call will likely be made following Wednesday's morning shootaround, but if all goes as planned, Carter should slot in as depth on the wing. That said, with an average of just 12.0 minutes per game this season, he'll remain off the fantasy radar.
Paul Millsap DEN F
Nuggets' Paul Millsap: To undergo wrist surgery, out indefinitely4h ago
Millsap is slated to undergo surgery on his left wrist and will be sidelined indefinitely, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Despite an X-ray coming back negative on Monday, Millsap went ahead and scheduled a follow-up meeting with Nuggets doctors Tuesday, where it was decided it's in his best interest to undergo surgery on the wrist. The surgery is reportedly to repair a torn ligament and while the Nuggets are saying he's out indefinitely, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that it could cost him up to three months of action. A more concrete target date will likely be released following the surgery. Guys like Kenneth Faried, Juan Hernangomez and Trey Lyles should help cover his minutes, with Faried the likely starter moving forward. That said, Wilson Chandler has played some power forward in the past, so the Nuggets could experiment with him at the position as well, which could mean more Will Barton at small forward.
Shea Weber MON D
Canadiens' Shea Weber: Sitting out Tuesday night2h ago
Weber (lower body) won't play against the Stars on Tuesday night, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Weber's on pace for another solid stat line this season, as he has compiled 14 points and 60 shots on goal through 20 games. The Canadiens will deploy Brandon Davidson into their defensive rotation Tuesday. Even though we know the nature of Weber's injury now, it's difficult to project a clear timeline for his recovery at this point. The Canadiens travel to Nashville on Wednesday night, and that will be his next opportunity to play.
Cal Clutterbuck NYI RW
Islanders' Cal Clutterbuck: Expected to return Wednesday3h ago
Clutterbuck (illness) will return for the Islanders when they take on the Flyers in Brooklyn on Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Clutterbuck missed two games due to the illness but will return to his fourth line role versus the Flyers. He only has three goals and seven points this season so lighting up the scoreboard is not something he does well. What Clutterbuck does do well however is getting under the skin of his opponents and playing a strong defensive game. The Islanders will welcome his energy back to the lineup Wednesday.
Thomas Greiss NYI G
Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Will start Wednesday3h ago
Greiss has been named the starting goalie for the Islanders when they take on the Flyers in Brooklyn on Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Greiss is 6-2-2 in net for the Isles this season but those numbers are misleading at they come with a 3.33 GAA and .904 save percentage. The reason he has started five of the Isles last seven games however is because the team seems to outscore their opponent with Greiss in between the pipes. This is likely not going to be a recipe for success all season long but until Jaroslav Halak improves his play, Greiss does give the Isles the best chance for a victory.
Jason Pominville BUF RW
Sabres' Jason Pominville: Moves up to top line4h ago
Pominville was skating on the first line Tuesday.
Pominville's provided very good returns for Buffalo this season with 13 points in 21 games, and he's become a staple on Jack Eichel's right wing. The pair has played together for much of the season, and even though Eichel's been struggling to score goals, the same can't be said for Pominville. However, despite Pominville's increased scoring rate, note that his 15.4 shooting percentage is his highest rate in 10 seasons, and nearly five percent higher than his career average. The law of averages says the 34-year-old will regress at some point, but Buffalo will continue to deploy him in the top six as long as he's scoring. Pominville is a short-term fantasy solution on a team that has yet to find its footing on offense.
Craig Anderson OTT G
Senators' Craig Anderson: Starting Wednesday in Washington5h ago
Anderson will guard the goal in Wednesday's road game against the Capitals, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Anderson has been dialed in recently, registering an impressive 1.62 GAA and .935 save percentage over his last three appearances, but he's compiled a disappointing 1-2-0 record over that span due to a lack of goal support from his teammates. The veteran backstop will look to stay sharp Wednesday in a road matchup with a Capitals club that's only averaging 2.50 goals per game at home this season, 26th in the NHL.
Derek Dorsett VAN RW
Canucks' Derek Dorsett: Returns to Vancouver for evaluation6h ago
Dorsett (neck) returned to Vancouver on Tuesday to be evaluated by the Canucks' medical staff.
Dorsett's rehab following the cervical fusion procedure he underwent last December progressed as expected, which resulted in the veteran winger being cleared to play in September. However, he's recently dealt with neck and back stiffness, so the Canucks determined it was best for him to return to Vancouver and undergo further evaluation for precautionary reasons Tuesday. Dorsett can be considered out indefinitely until Vancouver releases another statement regarding his status.
