    • Jason Witten DAL TE
      Cowboys' Jason Witten: Four catches in win
      1h ago

      Witten caught all four of his targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 37-10 win over the Eagles.

      Witten wasn't need much in the passing game as the Cowboys led this contest wire to wire. The veteran tight end remained involved, though, helping his tackles maul the Philly defensive front to open holes for Ezekiel Elliott. The un-retired legend continues to be a high-floor, low-ceiling PPR option, averaging 3.7 receptions and 37.6 receiving yards while rarely straying far from those averages. A few more red-zone looks would help boost his fantasy value (hasn't hit paydirt since Week 2) following the team's bye heading into a matchup against the Giants in Week 9.

    • Carson Wentz PHI QB
      Eagles' Carson Wentz: Under duress all game
      2h ago

      Wentz completed 16 of 26 pass attempts for 191 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 37-10 loss to Dallas.

      The Eagles' offensive line struggled to give Wentz much time in the pocket against Dallas' aggressive pass rush. It didn't help that Philadelphia fell behind by 14 points no more than six minutes into the contest, allowing the opposition to key in on stopping the pass early and often. The 26-year-old was stripped twice in addition to his lone pick, leading to a career-high three turnovers. Wentz' protection will have to step things up with a harsh road matchup against the Bills' top-five defense on tap Sunday.

    • Dak Prescott DAL QB
      Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Efficient in easy win
      2h ago

      Prescott completed 21 of 27 pass attempts for 239 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 37-10 win over the Eagles. He added 30 yards and another score on five rush attempts.

      Prescott picked apart a vulnerable Philadelphia pass defense (ranked 29th heading into Week 7), and added his third rushing touchdown of the season to put the cherry on top of a solid fantasy outing. The 26-year-old has a 3:1 TD:INT ratio against defenses ranked in the bottom half of the league (four games), compared to a 0.75:1 TD:INT ratio against those who grade in the top half (three games). Prescott will get to rest on the team's upcoming bye, but he will face a Giants passing D that actually has been worse than the Eagles' to date, making the signal-caller a strong play come Week 9.

    • Dallas Goedert PHI TE
      Eagles' Dallas Goedert: Finds end zone in defeat
      2h ago

      Goedert (undisclosed) had to leave Sunday's contest early, but promptly re-entered the game and finished with four receptions for 69 yards and a touchdown in a 37-10 loss to Dallas.

      The Eagles' second dynamic tight end suffered an injury scare in the early going, but he only missed a few plays before coming back to post his best stat line of the season. Goedert led all Philadelphia receivers in receptions, yards and touchdowns for the first time in his career. The 24-year-old had been a non-factor early in the year, but he has been coming on strong with nine receptions, 117 yards and Sunday's touchdown over his last two contests. Zach Ertz remains the top tight end in this passing attack, but coach Doug Pederson may be trending towards more formations with two tight ends to aid a wide receiving corps that has taken a beating this season. It's too early to give Goedert a high fantasy floor so long as Ertz is healthy, so expectations should be kept in check heading into Sunday's road matchup against the Bills.

    • Zach Ertz PHI TE
      Eagles' Zach Ertz: Worst statistical output of 2019
      2h ago

      Ertz had two catches (five targets) for 38 yards in Sunday's 37-10 loss to Dallas.

      Ertz -- and the Eagles' passing attack as a whole -- couldn't get into any sort of rhythm against the Cowboys' relentless defense. The star tight end set new season lows in receptions, yards and targets in one fell swoop. Outside of this dud, Ertz had been the model of consistency with averages of 5.5 receptions and 61.0 yards over his previous six contests. The recent emergence of fellow tight end Dallas Goedert (four receptions, 69 yards and a touchdown) could frustrate Ertz's fantasy owners, but Sunday's role reversal should be written off as an anomaly, as the latter is still the top dog heading into a matchup against the Bills on Sunday.

    • Duke Williams BUF WR
      Bills' Duke Williams: Tests taken after game
      3h ago

      Williams, who suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's win over Miami but returned a few plays later, was taken for X-rays following the game, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

      The rookie may not be out of the woods yet, so at the latest we'll get an update when the Bills resume practicing mid-week, though a report Monday would seem more likely. Williams was only targeted once Sunday, reeling in a 23-yard pass from Josh Allen, though he's seemingly worked his way into the third receiver role if the injury turns out to be minor. The fact that he retuned to action Sunday may make that a better possibility.

    • Carlos Martinez STL RP
      Cardinals' Carlos Martinez: Undergoes shoulder surgery
      17h ago

      Martinez underwent a cleanup procedure on his right shoulder Saturday, freelance writer Joe Schwarz reports.

      Martinez struggled in the postseason with six runs allowed on six hits and four walks over 3.2 innings, but it's unclear how long he was actually dealing with the shoulder issue. The 28-year-old will have over three months to recover before pitchers and catchers report in February. The right-hander worked exclusively as a reliever in 2019, but he could transition back to starting pitcher next spring if his health isn't a major concern.

    • Ryan Pressly HOU RP
      Astros' Ryan Pressly: Downplays knee issue
      1d ago

      Pressly (knee) said he'll be ready to pitch in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday against the Nationals, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      Pressly exited Game 6 of the ALCS on Saturday with right knee discomfort, but he said some scar tissue in his knee came off, which was something he expected to occur at some point after undergoing knee surgery in August. The 30-year-old will now have Sunday and Monday to rest up after the Astros clinched their trip to the World Series with Saturday's walkoff victory.

      Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Shut down for Arizona Fall League
      1d ago

      Rodriguez has a lower-back strain and will sit out the final week of the Arizona Fall League, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

      Rodriguez showcased himself extremely well in the AFL with a .288/.397/.365 slash line with four doubles and 10 RBI in 52 at-bats. The 18-year-old is one of the Mariners' top prospects and finished the 2019 season at High-A Modesto, posting a 1.252 OPS in 17 games. The injury is believed to be minor and shouldn't impact Rodriguez's availability for the start of spring training.

      Astros' Ryan Pressly: Leaves with knee discomfort
      1d ago

      Pressly was removed from Game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Saturday due to right knee discomfort, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

      Pressly delivered only one pitch but appeared to injure himself while fielding a grounder between the mound and first base. The 30-year-old underwent surgery on the same knee back in August, but it's unclear if he aggravated that injury or is dealing with a new issue. The Astros labeled Pressly day-to-day and his status for Sunday's Game 7, if it's necessary, remains up in the air.

    • Julian Fernandez MIA RP
      Rockies' Julian Fernandez: Returns to Rockies
      1d ago

      Fernandez (elbow) was returned to the Rockies on Saturday.

      Fernandez was plucked by the Giants from the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft back in December of 2017. He suffered an elbow injury prior to the 2018 regular season and has spent the entire time since then recovering from Tommy John surgery, first with the Giants and then with the Marlins after being claimed off waivers in November of 2018. Since he didn't spend any time on a big-league roster within two years of being drafted, he's now back in Colorado per Rule 5 rules.

      Severino is available in the bullpen for Game 6 of the ALCS against the Astros on Saturday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

      Severino would be pitching on three days' rest if he appears, as he threw 4.1 innings in Game 3 on Tuesday. The Yankees may prefer to not use him if possible, as he'd be lined up to throw Game 7 on Sunday, should the series get that far.

      Hollis Thompson: Cut loose by Kings
      10h ago

      Thompson (hip) was waived by the Kings on Sunday, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

      Thompson signed with the Kings just over a week ago, but he was unable to play in the preseason due to a hip injury. He'll now, unsurprisingly, be left off the final roster at the start of the regular season.

      Tyler Ulis: Let go by Sacramento
      10h ago

      Ulis (groin) was waived by the Kings on Sunday, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

      Ulis missed the entire preseason with a groin strain, and that, combined with the fact that the Kings already had decent depth at point guard, has led to the point guard failing to make the final roster. Assuming Ulis clears waivers, he will become an unrestricted free agent to start the regular season.

      Hawks' Cam Reddish: Expected to play Thursday

      Reddish (hip) will play around 20 minutes in the season opener Thursday versus the Pistons, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

      Reddish, who missed Thursday's preseason finale, has been nursing right hip soreness recently. His injury though won't keep him out any further, as Reddish is expected to play roughly, and reportedly, 20 minutes Thursday. Depending on teammate Kevin Huerter's status for Thursday, Reddish may see a spot in the starting lineup as well.

      Okpala (illness) didn't practice Sunday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

      Okpala has been dealing with the flu recently. As a result, the second-round pick missed Friday's preseason finale and now practice Sunday. As a result, the rookie will likely be a game-time call for the season opener Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

      Haslem (wrist) didn't practice Sunday, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

      There's no surprise here, as Haslem is expected to remain out until at least Monday while dealing with a sprained wrist. There's hope though that the veteran center could suit up for the season opener Wednesday against Memphis.

      Huerter (knee) practiced fully Sunday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

      It appears that Huerter is starting to feel better, as soreness in his right knee has limited him in practiced recently. There's hope that if Huerter can continue to practice fully this week then he'll be ready to go for the season opener Thursday against Detroit.

      Ducks' Hampus Lindholm: Generates apple
      4h ago

      Lindholm notched an assist in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Flames.

      Lindholm has been a steady presence on the scoresheet, with six assists through nine games this season. His helper Sunday came as the Ducks cycled around after the opening faceoff of the second period, eventually getting the puck to Jakob Silfverberg for their only goal in the contest. The 25-year-old defenseman will continue to see steady offense with top-pairing deployment.

      Manson recorded an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Flames.

      Manson now has three points, a plus-5 rating and seven PIM in his last three contests. That's all his offense this season, and he's added 25 hits and 10 shots on goal in nine appearances. The 28-year-old defenseman skates on the top pairing, but he's typically a bit more defensively oriented.

      Silfverberg scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Flames.

      Silfverberg was the beneficiary of a quick play off the opening draw of the second period, tallying the game's first goal just 12 seconds into the frame. The Swedish winger has five points and a plus-6 rating in his last three games, giving him eight points in nine contests overall this year. He won't often play a physical game, but the scoring alone will attract attention in fantasy circles.

      Gibson and Flames goalie Cam Talbot had quite the goalies' duel going on, but Gibson ended up on the wrong end of the result. The 26-year-old has a 4-3-0 record with a 1.88 GAA and a .939 save percentage through seven starts this season. He'll likely receive the starting nod Tuesday in Nashville.

      Tkachuk is up to eight points and 18 PIM in 10 games this year after setting up Mikael Backlund's game-winning goal Sunday. The fiery winger has added 21 shots on goal and 21 hits as well this season while being one of the top offensive producers for the Flames.
