      Saints' Marcus Williams: Interception in win
      3h ago

      Williams recorded three tackles, all solo, an interception and a pass defensed across 62 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Browns.

      Williams didn't miss a defensive snap and was a key reason the Saints were able to hold off the Browns. His interception came with five minutes left in the contest, the Saints trailing 12-10. Williams was able to give the offense a prime setup, returning the pick 22 yards and lining Drew Brees up at the Browns' 18-yard line. The safety will have his hands full again this Sunday against Matt Ryan and the Falcons' high-flying air assault.

      Saints' Sheldon Rankins: First sack of season
      3h ago

      Rankins recorded five tackles (two solo) and a sack across 50 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Browns.

      Rankins played in 81 percent of the Saints defensive snaps, good for second-highest on the defensive line only behind Cameron Jordan. A run-stuffer, Rankins does not reach the quarterback often, as he recorded a season-total of two sacks last season.

      Vikings' Everson Griffen: Logs 69 snaps
      3h ago

      Griffen recorded two tackles (one solo) and half a sack across 69 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Packers.

      Griffen was limited throughout the week at practice with a toe injury but did not appear to be slowed down on the field Sunday. The defensive end played in 90 percent of the defensive reps, the highest mark across the defensive line. Griffen was in the face of Pro Bowler David Bakhtiari all afternoon, forcing Aaron Rodgers to rush through his progressions several times.

      Packers' Kenny Clark: First sack of season
      3h ago

      Clark recorded four tackles (two solo), a sack and a pass defensed across 55 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Vikings.

      The big run-stuffer doesn't reach the quarterback a ton throughout the season, as he now has four career sacks in three seasons. Clark also logged the most defensive reps of the entire defensive line Sunday, playing in 75 percent of the snaps.

      Martinez recorded nine tackles (five solo) and a pass defensed across 73 defensive snaps in Sunday's tie with the Vikings.

      Martinez was one of four Packers to log 100 percent of the defensive snaps in Sunday's tie. He was flying around the field all day, leading the defense in tackles. He'll look for a similar output this Sunday against the Redskins.

      Dennard recorded eight tackles (six solo) across 66 defensive snaps in Thursday's win over the Ravens.

      Dennard has solidified himself as the nickel back in the Bengals secondary, logging similar amount of reps to Dre Kirkpatrick and William Jackson. His eight tackles were tied for second-highest on the team Thursday. He'll look to put up similar numbers this coming Sunday against the Panthers.

      Rays' Joey Wendle: Four-hit night with RBI
      34m ago

      Wendle went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

      Wendle slashed an RBI-double in the fourth inning and later hit another double, giving him 27 two-baggers on the season. The 28-year-old is hitting .298/.347/.432 with seven home runs, 53 RBI and 55 runs scored while going 13-for-17 in stolen base attempts on the year.

      Rays' Willy Adames: Hits two-run homer

      Adames went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

      Adames got the scoring started with a two-run homer -- his 10th of the year -- off Yovani Gallardo in the fourth inning. It was the second home run in three games for Adames, and his fourth straight game with a hit. He's now slashing .267/.333/.414 with 28 RBI, 39 runs and six stolen bases in 251 at-bats this season.

      Rangers' Yovani Gallardo: Takes loss against the Rays
      36m ago

      Gallardo (8-6) allowed three runs on eight hits in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday, recording three strikeouts and three walks in five innings.

      Gallardo had the unfortunate position of being matched-up against Blake Snell on Tuesday, and he threw three scoreless innings before giving up a three-spot in the fourth, but the Rangers couldn't get anything going against Snell and the Rays bullpen. In 19 appearances (16 starts) this season Gallardo has a 6.59 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP to go with a rather poor 53:43 K:BB in 84.2 innings. He's slated to take on the Angels in his next start in Los Angeles.

      Rays' Blake Snell: Gets 20th win, 200th strikeout
      37m ago

      Snell (20-5) allowed one hit in five scoreless innings in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday, striking out five and walking two.

      Snell was stellar once again, earning his eighth consecutive win and his 20th win on the year. He becomes just the second Rays pitcher to tally 20 wins in a season (David Price won 20 games in 2012) and he's the only pitcher thus far to reach the mark in the majors this year. Snell also became just the 12th pitcher this year to break the 200-strikeout threshold, doing so in only 169 innings pitched. The left-hander's 1.97 ERA trails only Jacob DeGrom (1.78) in the majors and his .179 batting average against leads all starting pitchers. His next start will be a matchup with the Blue Jays in Toronto this weekend.

      Peraza went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

      Peraza clubbed a two-run homer -- his 13th of the year -- off Chase Anderson in the first inning and slashed his 31st double in his next at-bat. Peraza is hitting .333 with four home runs and 11 RBI over his last 15 games, and on the season he's slashing .292/.330/.423 with 56 RBI, 83 runs and 23 stolen bases. He's having a nice offensive campaign in his second full season with the Reds.

      Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Notches save No. 28
      2h ago

      Iglesias struck out three and walked one in a hitless ninth inning Tuesday to pick up the save against the Brewers.

      Iglesias walked Curtis Granderson to start off the ninth inning but then got Christian Yelich, Domingo Santana and Hernan Perez to strike out swinging. Iglesias has now thrown four straight hitless innings and is 28-for-32 in save opportunities on the year. The 28-year-old sports a 2.43 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and a 72:22 K:BB in 66.2 innings. Despite playing for a team that is in last place in its division, Iglesias is tied for fifth in the NL with his 28 saves.

    • Kyrie Irving BOS PG
      Celtics' Kyrie Irving: No restrictions expected for regular season
      4h ago

      Irving (knee) isn't expected to have any restrictions when the regular season opens Oct. 16 against the 76ers, David Aldridge of TNT reports.

      Irving has been deemed fully healthy for three weeks now and with another month to go before the opener, he should have plenty of time to get comfortable with his knee and back into game shape. While the Celtics have excellent depth in the backcourt with both Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier, Irving is still headed for a 30-plus minute role, so he should come off the board in the first two or three rounds of most fantasy drafts. The injury concerns are still there after missing at least 19 games in each of the last three years and he's also going to have to adjust to playing with Gordon Hayward, but he's still an All-Star candidate and will do the bulk of the play-making in Boston.

    • Andre Roberson OKC SG
      Thunder's Andre Roberson: Yet to be cleared for contact
      6h ago

      Roberson (kneecap) hasn't been cleared for contact or 5-on-5 work, David Aldridge of TNT reports.

      Roberson had previously reported that he hoped to be back to full strength by December, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that he isn't ready for contact in mid-September, more than two months beforehand. While the Thunder certainly want their top defender back as soon as possible, he won't be rushed into action and is still likely looking at missing at least the first month or two of the season barring any surprising developments in his recovery. Adding on to that, Roberson's value comes on the defensive side of the ball, so he'll struggle to provide significant fantasy value even when he's at full strength. With Roberson sidelined to start the season, Dennis Schroder will likely be the most intriguing fantasy asset that should benefit, while guys like Raymond Felton, Alex Abrines and Terrance Ferguson could see added minutes as well.

    • DeMarcus Cousins GS C
      Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins: Sitting out training camp
      7h ago

      Cousins (Achilles) won't participate in training camp, David Aldridge of TNT reports.

      Cousins was always considered a long shot to be ready for camp as he works his way back from a torn left Achilles' tendon, so this is merely a confirmation that he's sitting out. That said, coach Steve Kerr is still planning to watch a ton of film with Cousins, so the hope is to keep him involved in practices and to help the All-Star big man get a feel for how the team plays together. Considering the talent surrounding Cousins, the Warriors will be extremely cautious with his recovery and don't have much incentive to rush him back early on in the regular season. With the uncertainty regarding his return and the potential for him to miss more than half the season, Cousins will likely be a popular late-round flier in most leagues.

      Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Health trending positively
      8h ago

      Hollis-Jefferson (hip) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, of the New York Post reports.

      Hollis-Jefferson injured his hip at former teammate Jeremy Lin's charity basketball game in China in early August. There has not been much word regarding the severity of the injury since, but general manager Sean Marks indicated on Tuesday that he should be good to go for the start of training camp. The 23-year-old is expected to kick off his fourth season as the Nets' starting power forward career highs in points, rebounds, steals, and minutes last season, and could potentially build on that momentum assuming his health is up to par.

    • Zhaire Smith PHI SG
      76ers' Zhaire Smith: Targeting return in December
      9h ago

      Smith (foot) is targeting a return at the end of December, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

      Smith underwent surgery on Aug. 9 to address an acute Jones fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his left foot and it appears we now have a targeted timetable for a potential return. If he gets back on the court in December, Smith will have officially missed roughly the first three months of the season and he would also likely be eased back into the swing of things once cleared. As a result, the rookie isn't expected to be a fantasy contributor this year and he could even get some rehab time in with the team's G-League affiliate as well. Look for the 16th overall pick to spend much of his time in a deep reserve role once healthy.

    • Isaiah Thomas DEN PG
      Nuggets' Isaiah Thomas: Training camp availability uncertain
      9h ago

      Thomas (hip) remains questionable for the start of training camp next week, Chris Dempsey of Nuggets.com reports.

      Thomas indicated at the end of July that he expected to be fully cleared in a month, so it appears he's a little bit behind in the recovery process. A large part of that is likely just the Nuggets taking a cautious approach with Thomas, who played just 32 games during the 2017-18 campaign and underwent hip surgery back in March. In a recent interview, Nuggets President of Basketball Ops Tim Connelly said, "Like all of our guys, we want to be especially sensitive to Isaiah. I think he probably has rushed back (in the past). We want Isaiah to be right. So, he's working his butt off a couple times a day with our guys. He's getting better by the day. But we're not trying to win the preseason. Whenever he's ready he'll be out there and I'm sure he'll be impactful." Look for an update to be provided on Thomas prior to the start of training camp next week, but don't be surprised if he's significantly restricted early on and he may not be ready to take part in preseason play which starts Sept. 30.

      Canucks' Tim Schaller: No points in return to action
      2h ago

      Schaller was held pointless in Vancouver's 4-2 loss to the Oilers on Tuesday.

      Schaller, 27, is coming off hand surgery so it's understandable that it'll take time to get back to full speed. Last season, as a member of the Bruins, Schaller played all 82 games and tallied 22 points, playing just over 13 minutes per contest. Likely suited for a bottom-six role with the Canucks, don't expect him to fill the scoresheet very often. In a fantasy sense, you best look elsewhere for help.

      Granlund was held off the scoresheet in the Canucks 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Tuesday.

      Granlund played just under 15 minutes in this game, registering one shot on goal in the process. The Finnish center regressed in 2017-18, totaling 12 points a year after posting a 32-point campaign. He will undoubtedly be expected to take on a bigger role this upcoming season now that Vancouver is without Daniel and Henrik Sedin.

      Nilsson, 28, started 24 games for the Canucks a season ago, going 7-14-4 along the way. He by all accounts will be the team's primary backup behind Jacob Markstrom this upcoming season but beyond that, who knows what the future holds for the Swedish netminder. It's probably best to steer clear of Nilsson in fantasy.

      Talbot made 22 saves, allowing one goal in the Oilers' 4-2 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

      Talbot made one highlight-reel save that would've been in contention for Save of the Year had happened in the regular season. The 31-year-old is coming off a down year, much like his team, and will be looking to bounce back in 2018-19. Having started 140 games over the last two seasons, expect Talbot to be treated to another heavy workload this upcoming season, considering the absence of a reliable backup behind him.

      Caggiula went pointless but did dish out a trio of hits in Edmonton's 4-2 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

      Returning from an illness that caused him to miss part of training camp, the 24-year-old forward played nearly 19 minutes in this one. While he failed to register a point, Caggiula did make an impact by throwing his body around and also registered a shot on goal. All signs point to him making the Oilers 2018-19 Opening Night roster and filling a bottom-six role in the process.

      Goodrow had a goal and two assists in the Sharks 4-1 win over Anaheim on Tuesday.

      The 25-year-old was also plus-4 on the evening, giving him as good a preseason debut as one could hope for. Appearing in 47 contests a season ago, Goodrow tallied 14 points and averaged just over 10 minutes of ice time each game. He's almost guaranteed to make the team as a bottom-six forward though performances like this will only help solidify his role with the big club heading into the 2018-19 season.
