Ty Montgomery BAL RB
Ravens' Ty Montgomery: Gains five yards in debut7h ago
Montgomery picked up five yards on a lateral play during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati.
Montgomery took the lateral inside the red zone late in the third quarter from rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson, setting up Gus Edwards' game-tying touchdown run. It wasn't a spectacular debut and Montgomery certainly doesn't fit the Ravens' mold of big-bodied backs, but the play showed that Montgomery can add dimensions to a Jackson-led offense, like option plays, to go along with his receiving ability. Keep an eye on whether it's Jackson or Joe Flacco (hip) under center Sunday against Oakland, a team ranked 25th in the league with 4.8 yards per opponent carry.
Javorius Allen BAL RB
Ravens' Javorius Allen: Held to two yards8h ago
Allen carried the ball once for a two-yard gain during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati.
Allen can't blame his uneventful day on the insertion of a run-first quarterback and sudden emergence of rookie Gus Edwards, but they certainly didn't help. Allen now has just six carries since Week 6. He had kept his value up as a receiver, with 14 catches in his previous four games, but that worth might be diluted if Jackson continues to play in place of Joe Flacco (hip). Allen's value is probably low as a runner no matter what, but keep an eye on the quarterback situation to see if Allen is likely to see a couple of passes come his way. Sunday brings a Raiders defense ranked 17th in opponent passing yards at 245 per game.
Chris Moore BAL WR
Ravens' Chris Moore: Totals 22 yards8h ago
Moore caught his lone target for a gain of 14 and added an eight-yard run during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Bengals.
Sunday, despite the change at quarterback, was more of the same for Moore, who has caught two or fewer passes in seven of his last eight games. In theory, if Lamar Jackson and a run-heavy attack continues in place of Joe Flacco (hip), Moore's susceptible to even less usage, but he's probably not worth turning to regardless, even against a mediocre Oakland pass defense Sunday.
Mark Andrews BAL TE
Ravens' Mark Andrews: Targeted once8h ago
Andews caught his lone target for a 19-yard gain during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Bengals.
Coming into Sunday, the rookie tight end had been targeted at least four times in three of his previous four games. That went away as Baltimore went run-heavy with fellow rookie Lamar Jackson at quarterback. Andrews is probably the member of the Ravens' deep tight-end corps most likely to produce in the passing game on any given week, but whether its Lamar Jackson or Joe Flacco (hip) Sunday against the Raiders obviously impacts his potential opportunities and value. The situation is worth monitoring.
Nick Boyle BAL TE
Ravens' Nick Boyle: Comes down with four catches8h ago
Boyle hauled in all four of his targets for a total of 36 yards during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati.
Boyle was one of the few targets in Baltimore that benefited from Lamar Jackson's start as he nabbed a season-high four catches. Still, the fourth-year player wasn't able to turn those into big gains - no completion going for more than 16 yards. Boyle's level of production in the passing game sets a fairly low bar and, even if Jackson starts in Joe Flacco's (hip) stead again, he's unlikely to be able to capitalize on a solid matchup against a Raiders defense that has been mediocre against the pass this season.
Troymaine Pope SEA RB
Troymaine Pope: Released from practice sqaud8h ago
Pope was released from the Seahawks' practice squad Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Pope joined the team's practice squad in early November as he had previous stints with the team, but the running back depth is apparently no longer needed with J.D. McKissic (foot) nearing a return. The Jacksonville State product hasn't seen game action since 2016 with the Jets and Seahawks.
Kelby Tomlinson SF 2B
Diamondbacks' Kelby Tomlinson: Signs minors deal with Arizona7h ago
Tomlinson signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks that includes an invitation to spring training, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Tomlinson has served the Giants in a Quadruple-A utility role for the last four seasons, but struggled mightily in 2018 with a .207/.265/.264 slash line in 140 at-bats. The 28-year-old has never exceeded 200 at-bats in the majors and that seems unlikely to change with Arizona in 2019, especially with Eduardo Escobar signing a $21 million extension in October.
Johnny Field MIN RF
Cubs' Johnny Field: Moves to minors9h ago
Field went unclaimed on waivers Tuesday and was sent outright to Triple-A Iowa.
Field was claimed off waivers by the Cubs at the start of November and will remain in the organization after being removed from the 40-man roster last week. The 26-year-old should provide outfield depth for the Cubs next season after posting a .222/.254/.403 slash line over 83 games in his rookie campaign with the Rays and Twins.
Jerry Vasto KC RP
Cubs' Jerry Vasto: Sent to minors9h ago
Vasto cleared waivers Tuesday and was assigned outright to Triple-A Iowa.
Vasto was claimed off waivers by the Cubs at the end of October, but apparently went unclaimed after being waived this time around. The 26-year-old may have a chance in spring training to reclaim a spot on the 40-man roster after posting a 3.08 ERA and 1.34 WHIP at the Triple-A level with he Rockies and Royals in 2018.
Hoby Milner TB RP
Rays' Hoby Milner: Removed from 40-man roster9h ago
Milner was designated for assignment by the Rays on Tuesday.
The move comes as the Rays added numerous prospects to their 40-man roster in order to protect them from the Rule 5 draft. Milner saw only 7.1 major-league innings (14 appearances) between Philadelphia and Tampa Bay in 2018, and allowed eight runs (six earned) on five walks and nine hits, including three home runs.
Oliver Drake MIN RP
Rays' Oliver Drake: DFA'd by Rays9h ago
Drake was designated for assignment by Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
Drake was claimed by the Rays at the start of November and has now spent time with six organizations in 2018. The 31-year-old totaled a 5.29 ERA and 1.45 WHIP across 47.2 major-league innings this season.
Christian Villanueva SD 3B
Christian Villanueva: Joining Yomiuri Giants10h ago
Villanueva (finger) was sold to the Yomiuri Giants of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
It was originally reported that Villanueva was headed to the Hanshin Tigers, but he was actually sold to the Giants. The 27-year-old had a hot start with San Diego this season, but ended up with a .236/.299/.450 slash line before a broken finger ended his season in August. The Padres will instead look to their younger infield options, namely top prospect Fernando Tatis.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson BKN SF
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Plays 25 minutes Tuesday5h ago
Hollis-Jefferson produced 10 points (3-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), and seven rebounds in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 104-92 victory over Miami.
Hollis-Jefferson was able to score just 10 points Tuesday, adding seven rebounds and nothing else. His production was certainly far from impressive but the fact he played 25 minutes is encouraging. Jared Dudley started and had just one rebound in 21 minutes. The is a chance Hollis-Jefferson moves into the starting lineup at some stage and so those with him on their rosters should just sit tight and wait and see how everything plays out.
Spencer Dinwiddie BKN PG
Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Continues strong play Tuesday5h ago
Dinwiddie totaled 16 points (5-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 104-92 victory over the Heat.
Dinwiddie finished with 16 points off the bench Tuesday, having now scored in double-digits for 14 straight games. He is a valuable piece of the Nets rotation, especially with Caris LeVert (foot) on the sidelines, and should be viewed as a must-roster player in all leagues. He is unlikely to move into the starting lineup at any stage but should see minutes in the 30's with some regularity.
Jarrett Allen BKN C
Nets' Jarrett Allen: Season-high 14 rebounds in victory5h ago
Allen had 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 104-92 victory over Miami.
Allen hauled in a season-high 14 rebounds Tuesday, adding 13 points to record his third consecutive double-double. Since returning from an illness that cost him two games, Allen is averaging 17.7 points, 12.3 boards, and 1.7 blocks across three games. He has provided relatively consistent production this season and should be viewed as a high mid-round player moving forward.
D'Angelo Russell BKN PG
Nets' D'Angelo Russell: Leads team with 20 points Tuesday5h ago
Russell finished with 20 points (9-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt), nine rebound,s six assists, four steals, and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 104-92 victory over the Heat.
Russell dropped 20 points Tuesday, adding season-high totals in both rebounding and steals. He has taken full advantage of the Caris LeVert (foot) injury, having now scored at least 20 points in three straight games. he also has a combined 22 assists, 15 rebounds, and eight steals in that same period. His efficiency from the field is going to be the one negative but putting that aside, he figures to be a top 60 player moving forward.
James Johnson MIA PF
Heat's James Johnson: Does little in 23 minutes Tuesday5h ago
Johnson totaled just four points, four assists, and three rebounds in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 104-92 loss to Brooklyn.
Johnson, playing in just his second game of the season, offered very little fantasy production during his 23 minutes on the court. His playing time increased slightly, up four minutes from Sunday, but he was unable to deliver much on the stat sheet. His role moving forward is likely to be tinged with inconsistency given the depth the Heat have. He has standard league upside but at this stage, is more of a deep league option.
Dwyane Wade MIA SG
Heat's Dwyane Wade: Plays just 13 minutes in return5h ago
Wade tallied just five points to go with two rebounds, two assists, and one block in 13 minutes during Tuesday's 104-92 loss to the Nets.
Wade returned after missing eight games due to the birth of his child, playing just 13 minutes in the loss. He was clearly rusty and may take a couple of games to back into rhythm. Wade is basically on a farewell tour and while he will display flashes throughout the season, he can be left on the waivers in standard leagues.
Drake Caggiula EDM RW
Oilers' Drake Caggiula: Ties game in third5h ago
Caggiula dished out an assist in Tuesday's overtime win versus the Sharks.
The Sharks shifted passes through traffic before Connor McDavid found Caggiula backdoor for an easy tap-in goal. This is Caggiula's third straight game with a point, and he has a goal and three assists in that span. He continues to be a valuable physical asset to McDavid's line as well, dishing out six hits in this game and now has 19 in the last four.
Joe Pavelski SJ C
Sharks' Joe Pavelski: Keeps up hot streak5h ago
Pavelski recorded an assist and two hits in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Oilers.
Pavelski won a faceoff back to Brent Burns, who fired a shot on net. The rebound was picked up by Joonas Donskoi and sent to the back of the net. Pavelski's face-off prowess was on full display Tuesday, winning 14 of 19 tries (74 percent). Pavelski now has a six goals and four assists in the last five games and will look to carry the flame into Friday's game against the Canucks.
Ty Smith NJ D
Devils' Ty Smith: Tops offensively among WHL D-men5h ago
Smith has collected 31 points -- which leads all league defensemen -- through just 20 games with WHL Spokane this season.
On the heels of his 73-point breakout effort last season, the Devils' first-round pick (No. 17 overall) from last summer's draft has been as advertised in his third full WHL campaign. At 5-foot-11 and 177 pounds, Smith is undersized as far as NHL defensemen go, so it'll be interesting to see how the next couple seasons shake out in terms of his physical development and durability -- whether at the junior level or professionally (potentially as early as next spring depending on the Chiefs' playoff prospects).
Leon Draisaitl EDM C
Oilers' Leon Draisaitl: Tearing it up with McDavid5h ago
Draisaitl scored a goal and added two assists in Tuesday's overtime win versus the Sharks.
Draisaitl has been working on the top line with Connor McDavid, and it's turned out fantastically. The 23-year-old had two assists in regulation before taking a back-door pass from McDavid in overtime to seal the deal. Draisaitl now has nine points in the last four games and will look to stay hot starting Friday in Anaheim.
Anders Lee NYI LW
Islanders' Anders Lee: Goals are down5h ago
Lee is on pace to score about 25 goals and 60 points this season.
The loss of John Tavares has had a negative effect on Lee's ability to put the puck in the net this season. Lee had scored 34 and 40 goals playing with Tavares the past two campaigns, but only averaged 20 assists. Without Tavares, Lee isn't scoring as much although that may could be because his shooting percentage has come down from a high of 19.2% last season to 11.3% this year. Perhaps it's not the loss of Tavares that is keeping Lee from lighting the lamp, just bad puck luck. Either way, Lee is still on pace to equal last season's point total of 62 and therefore is still a fantasy asset.
Tomas Hertl SJ LW
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Dishes helper in return5h ago
Hertl (lower body) recorded an assist and a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Oilers.
Hertl didn't miss a beat by notching an assist and continuing his point-per-game pace with five goals and 12 assists thus far. The 25-year-old winger is clearly having a breakout year, and his continued time on the power play will keep his ceiling high.
