  • DeeJay Dallas SEA RB
    Seahawks' DeeJay Dallas: One offensive snap
    6h ago

    Dallas didn't record a touch in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints. He recorded 53 yards on the kick return.

    Alex Collins and Rashaad Penny handled a bulk of the workload, and Dallas logged just one offensive snap. His main usage is as a kick returner unless either Collins or Penny goes down with an injury again.

  • Rashaad Penny SEA RB
    Seahawks' Rashaad Penny: Dismal production Monday
    6h ago

    Penny (calf) rushed six times for nine yards in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

    Penny handled 20 offensive snaps (36 percent) but couldn't get anything going on the ground. Penny's performance alone doesn't warrant more playing time moving forward, but Alex Collins -- who rushed 16 times for 35 yards -- failed to distinguish himself as well. Collins will likely start as the lead back in Week 8 against the Jaguars, though Penny could have a chance to take over the job if he gets the hot hand.

  • Will Dissly SEA TE
    Seahawks' Will Dissly: No targets Monday
    6h ago

    Dissly wasn't targeted in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

    Dissly scored his first touchdown of the season in Week 6. However, he failed to receive a target for the second time this season in Week 7 despite recording 40 offensive snaps, ahead of Gerald Everett (33). Dissly has now produced 10 receptions (12 targets) for 118 yards and a touchdown through seven contests.

    Seahawks' Gerald Everett: Rings up 23 yards
    7h ago

    Everett caught all three of his targets for 11 yards and rushed once for 12 yards in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

    The Seahawks leaned heavily on the ground game, rushing the ball 28 times compared to just 22 passing attempts, so Will Dissly out-snapped Everett 40-33. However, Dissly didn't receive a target. Everett has now produced 13 receptions (15 targets) for 128 yards and a touchdown through five games.

    49ers' Josh Norman: Big effort in loss
    7h ago

    Norman recorded 10 tackles, one pass defended and forced two fimbles in Sunday's 30-18 loss to the Colts.

    Norman recorded the first double-digit tackle effort of his career in a regular-season game. He has now forced three fumbles on the season while breaking up two passes -- both of which have come in the last two contests.

    Seahawks' Penny Hart: Receives just one target
    7h ago

    Hart didn't catch his lone target in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

    Hart logged 10 offensive snaps as the Seahawks' No. 4 receiver on Monday night. The speedster won't have much of an offensive impact as long as DK Metcalf, Tyler Lockett and Freddie Swain are healthy.

    Braves' Charlie Morton: Sustains fractured fibula
    8h ago

    Morton underwent X-rays after leaving Game 1 of the World Series against the Astros on Tuesday and was diagnosed with a fractured right fibula.

    Morton was hit by a comebacker during the second inning and initially remained in the contest, but he exited after 2.1 scoreless frames due to the pain. The 37-year-old will obviously be sidelined for the remainder of the World Series but is expected to be ready for spring training in 2022.

    Braves' Charlie Morton: Leaves Game 1 with injury
    8h ago

    Morton was removed from Game 1 of the World Series against the Astros on Tuesday with swelling in his right ankle, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was struck in the right ankle by a comebacker during the second inning, through he completed the frame and returned for the third before limping off following a strikeout. Morton allowed one hit with three strikeouts and two walks over 2.1 scoreless frames before being pulled. Atlanta will scramble in a bullpen game for the rest of Game 1, and it's unclear if the 37-year-old will be able to make his next turn through the rotation, which lines up for Game 5 on Sunday, if necessary.

  • Luis Garcia HOU SP
    Astros' Luis Garcia: Confirmed for Game 3
    13h ago

    Garcia will start Game 3 of the World Series in Atlanta on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Garcia will be pushed behind Jose Urquidy in the rotation. However, that shouldn't be taken as an indictment on Garcia, who looked great in his last start after struggling mightily in his first two postseason outings. The Astros can afford to pull their Game 2 starter early knowing they can rest their bullpen the next day, while the Game 3 starter will likely be asked to pitch deeper into the game.

    Astros' Jose Urquidy: Starting Game 2
    16h ago

    Urquidy will start Game 2 of the World Series against Atlanta on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Urquidy was awful in his lone start thus far this postseason, giving up six runs (five earned) while recording just five outs in Game 3 of the ALCS against Boston. He'll be moved ahead of Luis Garcia nonetheless, though that's not necessarily a vote of confidence in Urquidy. The Game 2 starter can be pulled early more easily, as Thursday's off day means the Astros will get to rest their bullpen after the game, while the Game 3 starter may be asked to provide more length with the teams scheduled to play on each of the following two days.

  • Marwin Gonzalez HOU 3B
    Astros' Marwin Gonzalez: Joins roster for World Series
    16h ago

    Gonzalez was included on the Astros' World Series roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Gonzalez wasn't on the roster for the first two rounds of the playoffs, but he's needed for the World Series with Jake Meyers out with a shoulder injury. The veteran utility man has had some notable playoff moments in the past for the Astros but is a lifetime .230/.304/.372 hitter in 35 postseason contests and hit just .199/.75/.304 in the regular season this year.

    Astros' Jake Meyers: Won't play in World Series
    16h ago

    Meyers (shoulder) was excluded from the Astros' World Series roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Meyers hurt his shoulder in the final game of the ALDS. While he remained on the roster for the duration of the ALCS, he didn't get into a game. He isn't expected to be ready to contribute during the World Series, so he's been replaced by utility man Marwin Gonzalez.

  • Daniel Theis HOU PF
    Rockets' Daniel Theis: Double-doubles in Tuesday's loss
    5h ago

    Theis produced 15 points (5-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 116-106 loss to Dallas.

    Theis had his best game as a member of the Rockets, reminding us that he can still put up fantasy-relevant numbers. Of all the older players in Houston, Theis feels like someone who could be either traded or moved to the bench as the season moves forward. For now, he is just a deeper league option who could have some limited streaming value on certain nights.

  • Kenyon Martin Jr. HOU SF
    Rockets' Kenyon Martin: Plays just five minutes in loss
    5h ago

    Martin finished with just one point (1-2 FT) and two rebounds in five minutes during Tuesday's 116-106 loss to Dallas.

    Martin is barely in the rotation at this point, something that is somewhat surprising given the direction the Rockets are headed in. Based on the current trend, he is not a player to even look at in 12-team leagues. However, should the team begin to lean more into their younger players as the season progresses, he could be a name to watch in the latter half of the campaign.

  • Eric Gordon HOU SG
    Rockets' Eric Gordon: Scores team-high 22 points Tuesday
    5h ago

    Gordon contributed 22 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two assists, two steals and one rebound in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 116-106 loss to the Mavericks.

    Gordon was efficient from the field again for the Rockets, as he looks to rebuild his reputation as a knock-down shooter. Now playing exclusively as a sixth-man, he appears comfortable in his role and makes sense as a possible short-term add in standard leagues, should you require a scoring punch. That said, managers should be prepared to drop him quickly should his shot fail him anytime soon.

  • Christian Wood HOU PF
    Rockets' Christian Wood: Grabs 17 boards Tuesday
    5h ago

    Wood ended with 16 points (6-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 17 rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 116-106 loss to the Mavericks.

    Wood turned in another serviceable game Tuesday, grabbing a season-high 17 rebounds in the process. Unfortunately, he failed to contribute on the defensive end and shot just 50 percent from the charity stripe. All in all, fantasy managers have to be pleased with his start to the season, playing for a team that figures to be on the wrong end of a lot of scorelines. As long as he is healthy, Wood should be able to return value on his preseason ADP.

    Nuggets' PJ Dozier: Plays 17 minutes in loss
    5h ago

    Dozier (elbow) had two points (1-4 FG) and two rebounds in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 122-110 loss at Utah.

    Dozier was considered probable with a left elbow injury, so it's no surprise he was available off the bench Tuesday. He's averaging 17.3 minutes through three games this season and should continue working as a reserve wing for Denver.

  • Jordan Poole GS SG
    Warriors' Jordan Poole: Scores 10 with seven dimes
    5h ago

    Poole had 10 points (5-14 FG, 0-7 3Pt), seven assists, two rebounds and two blocks in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 106-98 win over the Thunder.

    Poole struggled from the field, specifically from behind the arc, but was able to set a season high in assists. The 22-year-old is seeing plenty of action as a starter through the first four games of the year, though he has yet to find consistency with his shot, as he's 25-for-62 from the field overall and 7-for-28 from deep.

    Flames' Erik Gudbranson: Logs helper Tuesday
    3h ago

    Gudbranson posted an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Gudbranson set up Milan Lucic for the opening tally at 6:35 of the first period. With three assists in six games, Gudbranson has been fairly solid at both ends of the ice. He's added nine shots on net, 10 hits, six blocked shots and four PIM while working in a bottom-four role. Despite the decent early production, he's not likely to be a factor in most fantasy formats.

    Flames' Oliver Kylington: Gets on scoresheet with helper

    Kylington recorded an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Kylington helped out on a Milan Lucic tally in the first period to earn his first point of the season. Through five outings, Kylington has eight shots on net, seven blocked shots and four hits. He's been paired with Chris Tanev at even strength lately, but Kylington's ice time (14:14 per game) more resembles that of a third-pairing blueliner.

    Flames' Rasmus Andersson: Sets up power-play tally

    Andersson posted a power-play assist and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Andersson saw a shot attempt tipped in by Elias Lindholm at 12:10 of the first period to give the Flames a 3-0 lead. The 25-year-old Andersson has produced four helpers through six games, three of which have come on the power play. The Swede has added seven shots on net, five blocked shots and a plus-7 rating in a prominent top-four role.

    Monahan posted a power-play assist and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Monahan helped out on Matthew Tkachuk's tally at 11:18 of the third period. The assist was Monahan's first point in six games this season. He hasn't done much else with seven shots on net, six hits and a minus-4 rating while often playing in more of a bottom-six role for the first time in his career. He's averaging only 15:01 of ice time per game, in large part due to his scoring struggles.

    Dube recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Dube set up the second of Andrew Mangiapane's tallies in the contest. The 23-year-old Dube has played provider for his linemate frequently -- he now has four assists in six contests, all of them on goals by Mangiapane. Expect Dube to continue playing in a middle-six role throughout the season.

    Gaudreau recorded a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

    Gaudreau earned the secondary helper on Elias Lindholm's goal in the first period after setting up Rasmus Andersson for the initial shot. The 28-year-old Gaudreau is up to eight helpers in six games, with his assist Tuesday being his first power-play point of the year. After a couple of difficult years, the winger appears to be playing his best hockey again despite still searching for his first goal of the season.
