Willie Snead BAL WR
Ravens' Willie Snead: Totals 51 yards17m ago
Snead caught five of eight passes for 51 yards during Sunday's 24-21 win over Cincinnati.
How will Baltimore's receivers be impacted with Lamar Jackson at quarterback? For Snead, the answer was not much. The off-season acquisition was targeted at least seven times for the seventh consecutive game and topped 50 yards for the sixth time during that span. He still hasn't found the end zone since Week 1, and that obviously hurts his stock, but Snead looks like he'll be about the same player no matter whether it's Joe Flacco (hip) or Lamar Jackson throwing him passes. Look for him to try to exploit an Oakland pass defense giving up 258 yards per game next Sunday.
Calvin Ridley ATL WR
Falcons' Calvin Ridley: Totals 32 receiving yards19m ago
Ridley caught three of his four targets for 32 yards and carried once for five more yards during Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Cowboys.
Ridley finished fourth on the team in targets and managed a long gain of just 14 yards in this quiet performance. He bobbled what should have been an easy catch in the fourth quarter, resulting in a Dallas interception which set up a touchdown. Ridley has been rather quiet over his last six games, topping 50 receiving yards just once while making one trip to the end during that span. The rookie enjoyed a monster performance against the Saints in Week 3 and will look to replicate that effort on Thanksgiving in New Orleans.
Dion Lewis TEN RB
Titans' Dion Lewis: Another disappointing performance22m ago
Lewis carried the ball 10 times for 24 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Colts. He also added one catch on two targets for eight yards.
Lewis wasn't able to get anything going against the Colts despite once again leading the Titans' backfield in touches. His failure on the ground was not a major departure from the majority of the season, though his lack of involvement in the passing game was a letdown. His two targets tied for his lowest of the season, but he has now seen only a pair of targets in consecutive games. While it appeared that Lewis was poised for another big second-half of the season, his performance across the past two weeks calls his effectiveness going forward into question.
Corey Liuget LAC DT
Chargers' Corey Liuget: Ruled out Sunday22m ago
Liuget (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Liuget will not return to Sunday's tilt against the Broncos after having been carted to the locker room in the first half. The severity of the veteran's injury remains undisclosed, but it appears that Liuget may have sustained a significant knee issue. Darius Philon will benefit from an increased defensive workload as long as Liuget remains sidelined.
JuJu Smith-Schuster PIT WR
Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster: Tops 100-yard mark25m ago
Smith-Schuster caught eight of the 10 balls thrown his way for 104 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over Jacksonville.
Owners who stuck with Smith-Schuster in this tricky matchup were rewarded, as he played a major role in Pittsburgh's late comeback from a 16-0 deficit, even though he didn't do any of the scoring himself. This was the second-year wide receiver's fifth game with over 100 receiving yards this season. The Broncos will have a hard time trying to cover both JuJu and Antonio Brown on the outside in Week 12.
Kerryon Johnson DET RB
Lions' Kerryon Johnson: Knee injury believed to be sprain26m ago
Although Johnson is slated for an MRI of his left knee Monday, the Lions believe the running back sustained a sprain and nothing more, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
If the MRI confirms a sprain, there's a chance Johnson won't miss much, if any time, but it'll have to be relatively minor to gain clearance with the Lions taking the field Thanksgiving, per usual. On the season, he's accrued 641 yards on the ground, 213 yards a receiver and four touchdowns total. Any absence would lead to a timeshare at running back between bruiser LeGarrette Blount and pass-catching option Theo Riddick.
Sonny Gray NYY SP
Yankees' Sonny Gray: Reds engaged in trade talks17h ago
The Reds have been in contact with the Yankees regarding a potential trade for Gray, John Boyle of the Dayton Daily News reports.
There's no elaboration whether there was significant progress, let alone even an offer, but that's to be expected. Of note, new Reds pitching coach Derek Johnson was also Gray's pitching coach at Vanderbilt.
Braxton Davidson ATL LF
Braves' Braxton Davidson: May have fractured foot23h ago
Davidson was taken to the hospital Saturday for a possible left foot fracture, William Boor of MLB.com reports.
Davidson swatted a walkoff homer to propel the Peoria Javelinas to an Arizona Fall League Championship, but he appeared to suffer the injury while making his way around the bases. More should be known after he undergoes some tests.
Aledmys Diaz TOR SS
Astros' Aledmys Diaz: Dealt to Houston1d ago
Diaz was traded from the Blue Jays to the Astros in exchange for Trent Thornton on Saturday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Diaz appeared in 130 games for Toronto in 2018, slashing .263/.303/.453 while launching 18 home runs. He figures to serve as a utility infielder for the Astros during the upcoming campaign.
Kenley Jansen LAD RP
Dodgers' Kenley Jansen: Heart surgery on tap2d ago
Jansen will undergo heart surgery Nov. 26 and is expected to be fully recovered prior to spring training, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Jansen will require another procedure on his heart after being sidelined with an irregular heartbeat for a couple weeks in August. The 31-year-old underwent atrial fibrillation surgery on his heart six years ago, and this is expected to be the same exact procedure. Jansen wound up returning to the mound earlier than doctors anticipated in late August, and did a fine job helping the Dodgers make it back to the World Series. If all goes according to plan, he will be fully recovered in anywhere from two to eight weeks, well before spring training commences.
Steve Pearce BOS 1B
Red Sox's Steve Pearce: Returns to Boston2d ago
Pearce signed a one-year, $6.25 million contract with Boston on Friday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.
It shouldn't come as any surprise that the Red Sox wanted Pearce back in the fold after he claimed World Series MVP honors for his role in the Fall Classic. Pearce was a valuable contributor for Boston after coming over in a trade from Toronto in late June, and finished the regular season with a slash line of .284/.378/.512, recording 11 home runs and 42 RBI in 76 games. He figures to serve as a platoon partner to Mitch Moreland next season, so look for Pearce in the lineup when a southpaw opposes the Red Sox.
Jeff Mathis ARI C
Rangers' Jeff Mathis: Inks deal with Texas3d ago
Mathis has agreed to a two-year contract with the Rangers, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Mathis spent the last two seasons with the Diamondbacks, although he appeared in just 129 games over that span. He's certainly experienced struggles at the dish of late (.200/.272/.272 slash line last season) but adds value behind the plate. Mathis figures to have a shot to win the backup job behind Isiah Kiner-Falefa in spring training.
Trevor Ariza PHO SG
Suns' Trevor Ariza: Ready to play after absence11m ago
Ariza (personal) rejoined the Suns on Sunday, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Ariza missed the past two games while dealing with a personal issue. Mikal Bridges started in place of Ariza during the absence, but Ariza will be expected to assume his normal role as a starter now that he's back with the team.
Derrick White SA PG
Spurs' Derrick White: Reserve role on tap for Sunday17m ago
White will head to the bench for Sunday's game against Golden State, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Rudy Gay will move into the starting lineup as the Spurs look to switch things up a bit Sunday. Despite the change, White could still end up seeing his season average of 23.6 minutes while playing off the bench.
Rudy Gay SA SF
Spurs' Rudy Gay: New role against Warriors21m ago
Gay will move into the starting lineup Sunday against the Warriors, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
Gay's insertion into the starting five results in Derrick White heading to the bench as it appears that San Antonio will look to get bigger for Sunday's particular matchup against the Warriors. Gay has already been averaging almost 27 minutes per game this season, and it's possible he'll still hover around that same number as a starter too.
Wayne Ellington MIA SG
Heat's Wayne Ellington: Moves into starting five28m ago
Ellington will move into the starting lineup Sunday against the Lakers with Goran Dragic (knee) out.
Even though Ellington will be taking the place of Miami's primary ball handler, it's more reasonable to assume that Miami will have numerous players fulfill that role in the absence Dragic, not Ellington alone. That said, Ellington could find his way into more minutes while Dragic is out.
Otto Porter Jr. WAS SF
Wizards' Otto Porter: Will play Sunday35m ago
Porter (lower leg) will play and start in Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Porter woke up with soreness in his lower leg but went through pregame warmups without issue and will ultimately slot into his normal role against Portland.
Alex Poythress ATL SF
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Unlikely to face Clippers38m ago
Poythress (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Clippers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Poythress bruised his left ankle in Saturday's game against the Pacers and is trending in the wrong direction heading into Monday. Omari Spellman and the recently-returned John Collins would stand the most to gain if, and when, Poythress is officially ruled out.
Jamie Benn DAL LW
Stars' Jamie Benn: Collects three assists in win1h ago
Benn registered three assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Islanders.
It's worth noting the 29-year-old logged a season-low 15:13 of ice time against New York. Despite his surprisingly scarce playing time, Benn managed to pick up a pair of secondary assists and added a third helper on Alexander Radulov's second goal in the third period. The Stars' captain now has 17 points in 2018-19.
Alexander Radulov DAL RW
Stars' Alexander Radulov: Dazzles with three points1h ago
Radulov scored a pair of goals and registered an assist in a 6-2 win against the Islanders on Sunday.
Give the 33-year-old Russian 15 points in 2018-19 (in only 10 games). Radulov has battled several injuries this year, causing him to miss 10 games as a result. Meanwhile, the Stars' forward has been effective when healthy and has recorded points in every game he's played in except for two.
Ben Bishop DAL G
Stars' Ben Bishop: Bags road win in New York2h ago
Bishop turned aside 37 of 39 shots in a 6-2 win over the Islanders on Sunday.
Sunday's victory gives Bishop wins in back-to-back starts and boosted his record to 8-5-1 with a 2.37 GAA and .923 save percentage. Considering Dallas plays four games in six days, expect Bishop to start at least two of those contests.
Brock Boeser VAN RW
Canucks' Brock Boeser: Will skate Monday2h ago
Boeser (groin) will skate Monday.
Boeser has missed the last seven games with his groin injury and it appears he'll also be out Monday against the Jets. However, a return to skating is obviously a good sign for the 21-year-old sniper, who should be back sooner rather than later.
Corey Crawford CHI G
Blackhawks' Corey Crawford: Starting Sunday2h ago
Crawford will draw the start against Minnesota on Sunday, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Crawford is coming off a pair of incredible starts, allowing just one goal on 60 shots against the Kings and Blues. Of course, the Wild will be a much tougher test for the 33-year-old. On the year, Crawford owns a 4-6-1 record with a .916 save percentage and 2.58 GAA.
Brett Pesce CAR D
Hurricanes' Brett Pesce: Missing third straight game2h ago
Pesce (lower body) will not be in the lineup for Sunday's contest against New Jersey.
Pesce has just two goals and three points in 17 games, but his presence will be missed again in the defensive zone where he has 37 blocked shots. The 24-year-old New York native will get his next shot to suit up on Wednesday against Toronto.
