    • Derrick Morgan TEN OLB
      Titans' Derrick Morgan: Injures abdomen Monday
      1h ago

      Derrick Morgan is questionable to return to Monday night's game against the Colts with an abdominal strain, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone reports.

      Usual backup Kevin Dodd (undisclosed) is inactive Monday night, which leaves Brian Orakpo and Erik Walden as the only two available outside linebackers for the Tennessee Titans if Morgan cannot return.

      Redskins' Jamison Crowder: Three receptions in win
      1h ago

      Jamison Crowder hauled in three of five targets for 15 yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

      Crowder has yet to find the end zone this season and his 121 total receiving yards pale in comparison to his 231 yards through five games last season. A silver lining for fantasy owners could be Crowder's 53 offensive reps this Sunday, which is his highest on the year. However, if increased reps don't lead to more targets, Crowder could find himself on the chopping block in many leagues.

      Broncos' Chad Kelly: Can return to practice
      2h ago

      Chad Kelly (wrist) can return to practice this week, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.

      The Denver Broncos have three weeks to decide whether to activate Kelly or he will revert to injured reserve for the remainder of the season. The rookie seventh-round pick has started throwing, but there remains no clear place on the Broncos roster with backup Brock Osweiler healthy and Paxton Lynch (shoulder) also nearing a return.

      Eric Kendricks had 11 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 23-10 victory over the Packers.

      It marks the first game this season where Kendricks had double-digit tackles, and he also eclipsed his tackle total from the previous two weeks combined. The 25-year-old and the Minnesota Vikings ' defense have an appealing matchup against the struggling Ravens' offense in Week 7.

      Joseph also recorded four tackles (three solo) in the contest. The defensive tackle was on the field for 59 defensive snaps (59.0 percent). He will look to stay active in the Minnesota Vikings ' Week 7 matchup against Ravens.

      Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Monday.

      Beltran will head to the bench after starting the previous two games of the series and going 0-for-6. With Beltran opening on the bench, Yulieski Gurriel will serve as Houston's designated hitter, with Marwin Gonzalez manning first and Cameron Maybin stepping in to start in left field.

      Luis Severino (arm) is expected to pitch Game 6 of the ALCS against the Astros on Friday if necessary, Pete Caldera of The Bergen Record reports.

      Severino was removed from his previous start after being hit on the wrist by a comebacker. While there was some initial concern regarding the injury, Severino said he felt great afterwards and ultimately wasn't sent for additional testing. He's set to play catch prior to Monday's game, and if everything checks out fine, he should be available to pitch Game 6 -- assuming the New York Yankees are able to extend the series.

      Brian McCann is out of the lineup for Game 3 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Monday.

      Evan Gattis will serve as Houston's backstop and hit sixth Monday night. McCann has struggled over the course of the postseason. After playing in six games he's gone just 2-for-22 (.091) at the plate.

      Matt Holliday is out of the lineup for Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros on Monday.

      Holliday has appeared in just one game of the 2017 postseason, that being Game 1 of the ALCS. In said outing he went 0-for-3. He'll remain on the bench Monday while Chase Headley occupies the DH spot and hits ninth.

      Jason Gurka cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

      Gurka will report to Salt Lake after being designated for assignment earlier in the month to clear room on the 40-man roster for the recently acquired Felix Pena. He made just three appearances for the Los Angeles Angels in 2017, allowing two hits and a walk in just 0.2 innings of work. Given his lack of major-league experience, Gurka will likely open next season in the minors.

      Astros' Jake Marisnick: Begins throwing Sunday

      Jake Marisnick (thumb) threw Sunday for the first time since undergoing surgery in mid-September, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

      There's no indication that Marisnick will be able to return at some point during the postseason, should the Houston Astros advance beyond the ALCS. With that in mind, he'll aim to be back in full health once spring training arrives. Marisnick appeared in 106 games during the 2017 season, during which he hit .243/.319/.496.

    • Nick Collison OKC F
      Thunder's Nick Collison: Appears in one preseason game
      1h ago

      Nick Collison played just under seven minutes in his only appearance this preseason.

      Collison saw significant decreases across the board -- averaging just 6.4 minutes over 20 games -- a season ago. The departure of last season's backup center Enes Kanter leaves that role open, however the Oklahoma City Thunder signed third-year center Dakari Johnson to a two-year, guaranteed deal this offseason. This, paired with Collison's sharp decrease in playing time over the past two seasons, makes it unlikely for Collison to see a significantly increased role this season.

      Thunder's Dakari Johnson: Averages 11.4 minutes in preseason
      2h ago

      Dakari Johnson averaged 11.4 minutes over two games this preseason.

      After a strong year in the D-League last season, the Oklahoma City Thunder signed Johnson to a two-year guaranteed deal. The Thunder traded last season's backup center Enes Kanter, which leaves Johnson to compete with veteran Nick Collison for the backup center. Johnson offers the Thunder more size and upside, meaning he could see the majority of the reserve center minutes.

      Pistons' Boban Marjanovic: Not guaranteed regular rotation spot
      2h ago

      Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said Monday that the team would take a committee approach to the backup center position, meaning Boban Marjanovic won't necessarily be in store for a regular spot in the rotation, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

      After enduring a disappointing 2016-17 campaign, starting center Andre Drummond bounced back with a strong preseason and looks poised to open the upcoming season with a 30-plus-minute role in hand. When Drummond rests or is sitting due to foul trouble or his career-long free-throw shooting woes, Van Gundy indicated he would determine Drummond's replacement based on matchups. it appears safe to assume that Marjanovic won't be in store for much run against up-tempo teams that deploy centers that can stretch the floor, as the more mobile Jon Leuer could be the top alternative in those scenarios. That could result in some inconsistent playing time for the 7-foot-3 Serbian, which may make it difficult for fantasy owners to take advantage of Marjanovic's typically stellar per-minute production.

      Thunder's Jerami Grant: Averages 19.4 minutes in preseason
      2h ago

      Jerami Grant averaged 19.4 minutes over three games this preseason.

      Grant had the best shooting season of his career a year ago, shooting 46.3 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from beyond the arc over 19.1 minutes per game. The additions of Carmelo Anthony and Patrick Patterson, who provide the Oklahoma City Thunder with multiple stretch fours, will make it tough for Grant to see a larger role with the team this season.

      Thunder's Kyle Singler: Averages 23.8 minutes in preseason
      2h ago

      Kyle Singler averaged 23.8 minutes over five games this preseason.

      Singler saw a huge decrease in playing time last season, averaging 12 minutes over just 32 games. A major factor was his inefficient shooting, hitting just 18.9 percent of his three-pointers. The additions of Carmelo Anthony and Paul George shore up the Oklahoma City Thunder at the wing, making it unlikely Singler sees an increased role this season.

      2h ago

      Terrance Ferguson averaged 23.3 minutes over three preseason games.

      Ferguson will face an uphill battle to see the court this season. Newcomers Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, as well as returning guard Andre Roberson, will likely see the majority of the minutes on the wing. Ferguson's strength is his perimeter defense, however Roberson is already one of the best perimeter defenders in the league and will likely be the team's go-to perimeter stopper, leaving the rookie to compete with Alex Abrines for the reserve minutes.

    • Travis Konecny PHI C
      Flyers' Travis Konecny: Seeing increased role
      1h ago

      Travis Konecny has logged at least 14:50 of time on ice each of the last four games.

      After only seeing 11:02 of time on ice the last 10 games of the 2016-17 season, Konecny is now averaging 14:45 so far this season. Head coach Dave Hakstol seems to be giving Konecny his full trust after multiple benching incidents last season, and after a reshuffling of lines Konecny is now on the right side of 2017 second-overall pick Nolan Patrick. With a position on the second power-play line as well, it wouldn't be surprising to see Konecny surpass the 28-points he posted last season.

      Predators' Alexei Emelin: Seeing increased ice time as injury replacement
      1h ago

      Alexei Emelin has been logging time on the top defensive pairing the past three games, averaging almost 20 minutes per game alongside P.K. Subban.

      After seeing just 9:47 in his debut game for the Preds and sitting out the next game as a healthy scratch, Emelin has been thrust into a very prominent role ever since Roman Josi went down with a lower-body injury. He doesn't have much to show for it, however, with zero points through four games along with a minus-1 rating and just three shots on goal. Expect the 31-year-old defender to return to a second- or third-line role once Josi gets the green light to return to the lineup.

      Tomas Hertl has been averaging 2:21 of power-play time per game to start the 2017-18 season.

      The 23-year-old has also mainly played on a line with Logan Couture to start the 2017-18 season. Hertl has consistently recorded a half point per game over the last two seasons, and if he can start contributing more points on the power play -- he's only had nine in the last 130 games -- he could have a chance of surpassing his career high points total of 46.

      Predators' Matt Irwin: Not moving fantasy needle
      1h ago

      Matt Irwin has zero points through five games this season, averaging 16:03 per game with eight shots on goal.

      Irwin has been a steady presence on the Preds' blue line so far, being just one of three defensemen to have played in all five games to start the season. The problem is, aside from not being much of a scorer (14 points in 74 games last season), Irwin doesn't feature prominently in any other stat category either, including minutes played, plus-minus, hits, blocked shots or PIM. From a fantasy standpoint, he really doesn't move the needle and should be avoided in almost all formats.

      Rickard Rakell has only notched one goal in five games since his three-point opening night explosion.

      Even though Rakell has been in a point drought, it hasn't been from lack of opportunities. The 24-year-old has blasted the 11th most shots on goal in the entire league through the first six games, but has seen his shooting percentage drop a full nine percent from last year. So far in the 2017-18 season, Rakell's been skating on the first line with Ryan Getzlaf (lower body) sidelined, and averaged a remarkable 3:59 seconds per game on the man advantage -- the points will likely start rolling in shortly.

      Even though Krejci has only recorded one point since his three assist outburst on opening night, head coach Bruce Cassidy has still been giving him plenty of opportunities to put his name on the point sheet. It's simply a matter of time before Krejci gets back to his typical 50-point pace, and with David Backes scheduled to return to his right side on Oct. 27, help is on the way regardless.
