Baker Mayfield CLE QB
Browns' Baker Mayfield: Records second multi-touchdown game of career13m ago
Mayfield completed 23-of-34 attempts for 215 passing yards and two touchdowns, adding 43 rushing yards on four carries during Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to the Buccaneers.
The No. 1 overall pick threw for his most efficient completion rate of any of his four starts Sunday (67.7 percent) despite being under constant duress by the Bucs front seven (he's now been sacked five times in three different games). Despite a second-consecutive loss, Mayfield continues to show poise in high-pressure situations, as he led the offense into the end zone late in the fourth quarter after being set up by a 32-yard punt return by Jabrill Peppers with under three minutes to go in regulation. Mayfield's upcoming slate of opponents has vested fantasy GMs salivating, as the Browns will take on bottom 10 pass defenses over the next three weeks in Pittsburgh, Kansas City and Atlanta.
Julian Edelman NE WR
Patriots' Julian Edelman: Touchdowns in two straight14m ago
Edelman (heel) caught five of eight targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Bears.
Edelman refused to go down en route to a nine-yard touchdown on the opening drive, but he was relatively quiet thereafter. He's hit the ground running since returning from a four-game doping ban, racking up 16 catches for 147 yards and two touchdowns in three appearances. James White (10 targets), Edelman (eight), Josh Gordon (seven) and Chris Hogan (seven) were Tom Brady's favorite targets with tight end Rob Gronkowski (ankle/back) sidelined, and those four should all play major roles against the Bills in Week 8, especially if Gronk's unable to make his return.
Josh LeRibeus NO G
Saints' Josh LeRibeus: Questionable to return Sunday14m ago
LeRibeous is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens due to an ankle injury, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
LeRibeous got the start Sunday with Andrus Peat (head) inactive, but left the field during the second quarter of the Week 7 tilt. Cameron Tom will serve as New Orleans' starting left guard as long as LeRibeous remains sidelined.
Troy Hill LAR CB
Rams' Troy Hill: Evaluated for concussion Sunday19m ago
Hill exited Sunday's game against the 49ers and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Hill left the field during the second quarter of Sunday's game, and should be considered questionable to return. If Hill is confirmed to have suffered a concussion, expect Dominique Hatfield to serve as the primary backup to Marcus Peters for the remainder of the Week 7 contest.
Josh Gordon NE WR
Patriots' Josh Gordon: Hits century mark in Week 7 win21m ago
Gordon (hamstring) pulled in four of seven targets for an even 100 yards in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Bears.
Gordon almost had a much bigger day, but he narrowly missed getting into the end zone after bouncing off a few tackles on his way to a 55-yard catch in the fourth quarter. The former Browns receiver continues to appear on the injury report with a hamstring injury, but that issue is likely declining in severity with each passing week. Gordon's improving health and growing role in New England's passing game are both reasons for optimism against the Bills in Week 8 and beyond.
Jayon Brown TEN LB
Titans' Jayon Brown: Logs seven total tackles22m ago
Brown recorded seven and one sack during Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Chargers.
Brown returned to his regular rotational role this week, but still managed to make an impact on defense. The second-year linebacker continues to perform admirably in his sophomore campaign, and could be making a case for an increased defensive role in Tennessee.
Steven Wright BOS RP
Red Sox's Steven Wright: Still hopeful to make World Series roster7h ago
Wright (knee) is scheduled to throw a simulated game and go through defensive drills Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
The Boston knuckleballer did not appear in the ALCS after injuring his knee in the ALDS. However, it seems like he's nearing a return after working out with his injured knee a few times. How Wright's injury responds to Sunday's workout will likely give a clearer picture of his availability for the World Series, though things are very much up in the air at this point.
Clayton Kershaw LAD SP
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Expected to pitch in Game 71d ago
Kershaw is expected to appear out of the bullpen at some point in Game 7 of the NLCS against the Brewers on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
It's unclear when or how long Kershaw will pitch, but he'll have had two days to rest since last pitching Wednesday, so he should be able to throw at least an inning or two, the equivalent of a typical bullpen session. He's pitched out of the bullpen on short rest in winner-take-all games in each of the last two seasons, recording the final two outs as the Dodgers got past the Nationals in the NLDS in 2016 and pitching four scoreless innings in Game 7 of last year's World Series against the Astros.
Jose Altuve HOU 2B
Astros' Jose Altuve: Battled through avulsion fracture1d ago
Altuve's knee injury which caused him trouble throughout the season was an avulsion fracture, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
An avulsion fracture occurs when a small piece of bone attached to a ligament or tendon gets pulled away from the rest of the bone. He had surgery to fix the problem Friday and is expected to be fully recovered by the start of spring training. The second baseman's numbers took a step back across the board following his MVP campaign in 2017, with his slash line falling from .346/.410/.547 to a still excellent .315/.385/.449. His homers dropped from 24 to 13, while he stole 17 bases after swiping 32 bags the season before. Given the severity of his knee injury, however, the dip appears to be very understandable, and there's reason to believe he'll bounce back next season.
Chris Sale BOS SP
Red Sox's Chris Sale: Recovered from illness1d ago
Sale is feeling better Saturday after battling an illness during the ALCS, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.
Sale was hospitalized and scratched from his scheduled start for Game 5 of the ALCS, though he would have started Game 6 if necessary. It appears that he should have no issues by Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.
Jose Altuve HOU 2B
Astros' Jose Altuve: Undergoes knee surgery1d ago
Altuve had surgery on his right knee Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Altuve dealt with lingering knee issues throughout the season, so the procedure was likely just a simple cleanup. More news on a timetable for his recovery figures to surface in the coming days, but he should be ready to go for spring training.
Troy Daniels PHO SG
Suns' Troy Daniels: Questionable for Monday10m ago
Daniels (concussion) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Daniels saw just four minutes in the Suns opener, and was forced to miss their last game with this concussion. Daniels is expected to get much run for the Suns, as they are fairly deep on the wing. More information on Daniels should come out prior to Monday's game.
Will Barton DEN SG
Nuggets' Will Barton: Without a timetable on strained groin18m ago
Barton has been diagnosed with a strained groin and is without a timetable to return, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Barton suffered the injury during Saturday's game against the Suns, and needed to be carted off the floor. He underwent an MRI on Sunday to confirm the injury. It's uncertain how long he will be out, but his absence will likely lead to Torrey Craig or Juancho Hernangomez moving to the starting five.
Aron Baynes BOS SF
Celtics' Aron Baynes: Ruled out for Monday25m ago
Baynes (hamstring) will not play in Monday's game against the Magic, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
Baynes suffered a strained hamstring in the Celtics' game against the Knicks on Saturday. HIs next opportunity to play will come Thursday against the Thunder, and he should be considered questionable for that game at this time. With Baynes out, Daniel Theis could see an increased role.
Dennis Schroder OKC PG
Thunder's Dennis Schroder: Moving to bench role29m ago
Schroder will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Kings, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
With Russell Westbrook set to make his season debut, Schroder will move to the bench. In his two starts to start the season, Schroder averaged 14.5 points, 7.0 assists and 5.5 rebounds over 32.0 minutes, however all of those numbers are expected to take a hit with Westbrook back.
Kyle Anderson MEM SF
Grizzlies' Kyle Anderson: Questionable for Monday34m ago
Anderson is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Jazz with an illness.
The severity of Anderson's illness is unknown at this time, however more information should come out tomorrow after the team's morning shootaround. If Anderson is unable to go, Omri Casspi and Dillon Brooks could see an increased role.
Marc Gasol MEM C
Grizzlies' Marc Gasol: Probable for Monday37m ago
Gasol (back) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Jazz.
Gasol has been dealing with some back soreness to start the regular season, however he hasn't missed any time. Barring any setbacks, it seems as though Gasol will play. More information on his status should come out Monday after the morning shootaround.
Carter Hutton BUF G
Sabres' Carter Hutton: Draws start in Anaheim15m ago
Hutton will patrol the blue paint in Sunday's road tilt against the Ducks, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Hutton started the year 2-1-0, allowing just six goals in his first three starts. However, in his last three, the 32-year-old journeyman has been shelled for 13 goals and a 0-3-0 record. Hutton posted much better numbers with St. Louis the last two seasons but has been a big disappointment for the Sabres so far.
Louis Domingue TB G
Lightning's Louis Domingue: In goal Sunday28m ago
Domingue will draw the start against Chicago on Sunday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Domingue has made just one other appearance this season, stopping 38-of-40 shots in a win over Carolina on Oct. 16. The 26-year-old is a solid backup option, but playing behind one of the league's best netminder in Andrei Vasilevskiy, he doesn't get many chances to suit up. Tampa Bay has another back-to-back scheduled next weekend, so Domingue will likely start one of those games as well.
Ryan Spooner NYR C
Rangers' Ryan Spooner: Healthy scratch Sunday41m ago
Spooner will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's tilt against the Flame, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.
Spooner has posted just one assist while averaging 12:44 of ice time in seven games this season. The 26-year-old scored 16 points in 20 games with the Rangers last season after being acquired from the Bruins, but that success hasn't carried over.
Fredrik Claesson NYR D
Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Missing Sunday's contest44m ago
Claesson (upper body) will not suit up for Sunday's game against Calgary, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.
This injury appeared to pop up out of nowhere and there's no word on when Claesson should be ready to return. The Swede has yet to score a point in four games this season and will be considered day-to-day for now.
Ty Rattie EDM RW
Oilers' Ty Rattie: Moved to IR1h ago
Rattie (abdomen) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.
The team already announced that Rattie would miss multiple weeks, so this was mostly a transactional move. Edmonton recalled Cooper Marody from AHL Bakersfield while Rattie heals up.
Cam Ward CHI G
Blackhawks' Cam Ward: Gets starting nod Sunday1h ago
Ward will be stationed between the pipes for Sunday's home tilt against the Lightning, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Ward will make his first start since Oct. 13 and he's getting a tough matchup against a dangerous Lightning offense. The Saskatchewan native struggled while handling the starting duties before Corey Crawford returned, posting a 4.06 GAA and .879 save percentage in five starts.
