Levi Wallace BUF DB
Bills' Levi Wallace: Full-fledged starter19m ago
Wallace has logged 16 tackles and two passed defensed over his last four games, all starts.
Wallace, an undrafted rookie free agent from Alabama, didn't even make the Bills out of training camp and spent time on the practice squad this season, but he's kept at it and is now the full-time starter across from stud corner Tre'Davious White. You'd figure most teams would pick on Wallace, but he's held his own and even though he allows a few catches, he's proven adept at not getting beat for extra yardage. Wallace has a chance to hold this job into next season.
DaeSean Hamilton DEN WR
Broncos' DaeSean Hamilton: Emerging as season winds to close1h ago
Hamilton caught seven of 12 targets for 46 receiving yards during Saturday's 17-16 loss to the Browns.
Though receiving production has been relatively split between Hamilton, Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick in two weeks sans Emmanuel Sanders, the Penn State standout may be the most promising of the bunch, demonstrating reliable hands and savvy acumen after the catch with more opportunity to get on the field of late. Hamilton has garnered a monstrous 21 targets over Denver's past two games (a team high), turning those chances into 14 catches for 93 receiving yards and a touchdown. Following a second consecutive noteworthy showing, Hamilton figures to be a popular waiver-wire add and potential deep-league streaming option going up against an Oakland defense that's allowing a league-high 3.9 red-zone drives per game this season, 10 times being burned by a wide receiver for more than 15 points in PPR scoring.
Tim Patrick DEN WR
Broncos' Tim Patrick: Team's leading receiver in loss2h ago
Patrick hauled in five of eight targets, registering a team-high 65 receiving yards during Saturday's 17-16 loss to the Browns.
The second-year man out of Utah has been surprisingly steady over the past two weeks, hauling in 12 of 18 targets for 150 receiving yards against Cleveland's and San Francisco's relatively inexperienced secondaries. Patrick may prove to be the Broncos wideout you want on your roster over the final two weeks of the regular season, as he ranks second behind DaeSean Hamilton in wide receiver targets since Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) went down due to injury, and clearly has earned Case Keenum's trust with two targets in crucial third-down situations Saturday. Week 16's matchup isn't scaring anyone off, as Patrick and the Broncos face an Oakland defense that's allowed a 100-yard receiving, multi-touchdown performance in back-to-back games (Travis Kelce with 168 yards and two touchdowns in Week 13, JuJu Smith-Schuster with 130 yards and two scores in Week 14).
Courtland Sutton DEN WR
Broncos' Courtland Sutton: Outshined by fellow rookie wideout2h ago
Sutton caught all five of his targets, logging 42 receiving yards during Saturday's 17-16 loss to Cleveland.
The rookie second-round draft choice continues to garner deep-league flex consideration with a healthy workload in Denver's passing attack, collecting five or more targets in five of his past six games. It's encouraging to see Sutton have such an efficient outing against Cleveland, hauling in all five of his targets after posting a putrid catch rate of 46.4 percent over his five most recent performances preceding Saturday. It's been a solid debut campaign overall for the SMU standout, but he hasn't emerged as the clear No. 1 guy in the Broncos receiving corps despite the midseason trade of Demaryius Thomas and recent season-ending injury to Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles). In fact, Sutton has only seen the slightest bump in production since Denver traded Thomas on Oct. 30 (40.5 receiving YPG with two total touchdowns prior to trade, 48.3 YPG and one touchdown since). Week 16's matchup provides potential for a breakout performance, as he'll take on an Oakland defense that's allowed 19 touchdowns to wideouts in 2018, most behind only the 49ers and Packers.
Breshad Perriman CLE WR
Browns' Breshad Perriman: Lone catch goes for touchdown2h ago
Perriman caught one pass on two targets for 31 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 17-16 win over the Broncos.
For the second straight week, Perriman made an impact on the first drive of the game when Baker Mayfield found him for a 31-yard touchdown. While the duo has connected on two deep passes in the last two weeks, Perriman's involvement in the offense remains limited. Still, he has shown he has the ability for the big play, and Mayfield isn't afraid to chuck it deep to him. Perriman will look to find the end zone for the second time in 2018 against the Bengals in Week 16.
LeSean McCoy BUF RB
Bills' LeSean McCoy: Expected to sit Week 152h ago
McCoy (hamstring) is not expected to play Sunday against the Lions, a source has told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
McCoy owners will get the benefit of an early start time, but if this in fact the way the Bills will play it, part of the reasoning might be due to the team being out of the playoff hunt and also wanting to give young players like Marcus Murphy and Keith Ford some extra looks.
J.T. Realmuto MIA C
Marlins' J.T. Realmuto: Braves lose interest4h ago
Atlanta does not plan to hold further talks with the Marlins about Realmuto, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
The Braves haven't been in touch with the Marlins within the past five days. They appear to be moving on after signing Brian McCann three weeks ago.
Eloy Jimenez CHW RF
White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Battling quad strain in winter ball10h ago
Jimenez is day-to-day with a quad strain in the Dominican Winter League, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Jimenez was expected to be shut down soon for the holidays anyway, so the injury likely won't cost him too much time. It doesn't appear to be serious enough to threaten his availability at the start of spring training. The young outfielder had been on a tear in eight games for Gigantes in the Dominican Winter League, hitting .448/.500/.759.
Matt Adams STL 1B
Nationals' Matt Adams: Returns to Washington10h ago
Adams signed with the Nationals on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Adams spent the first part of last season in Washington, hitting .257/.332/.510 in 94 games. That line was good for a 123 wRC+, a number which would have been his highest since 2013 had his season ended at that point. A very poor showing after being flipped to St. Louis hurt his final numbers, but he has a good fit with the Nationals and could be poised to succeed again. He forms a natural platoon with Ryan Zimmerman at first base, neutralizing the effect of his career .596 OPS against lefties and allowing him to post decent numbers in a part-time role.
Yonder Alonso CHW 1B
White Sox's Yonder Alonso: Dealt to White Sox1d ago
Alonso was traded from the Indians to the White Sox on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
It remains unknown as to what Cleveland is getting in return, but more details regarding the trade should be revealed shortly. Alonso slashed .250/.317/.421 with 23 homers and 83 RBI over 145 games for the Indians in 2018, and he could slot in as Chicago's everyday designated hitter, especially with Jose Abreu already a solid option at first base. Alonso does have a $9 million option for the 2020 campaign, so the White Sox could keep the 31-year-old around for at least the next two seasons, per Rosenthal.
Matt Chapman OAK 3B
Athletics' Matt Chapman: Undergoes shoulder surgery1d ago
Chapman underwent surgery Friday on his left shoulder. The procedure was a distal clavicle resection procedure, and he will be ready to swing in six weeks, according to the team's press release.
According to the A's, Chapman felt problems with the shoulder in offseason workouts and was evaluated by the team this week. He'll begin physical therapy next week.
Matt Chapman OAK 3B
Athletics' Matt Chapman: Has minor shoulder procedure1d ago
Chapman underwent surgery on his left shoulder Friday, and he's expected to resume swinging a bat again within six weeks, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Chapman reportedly began feeling discomfort in his shoulder during his offseason workouts, so he went under the knife to correct the issue prior to the 2019 campaign. The Gold Glover has now had two surgeries since the 2018 season came to an end, but Oakland fully expects their star third baseman to be healthy for spring training.
Jeff Teague MIN PG
Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Collects 11 assists in loss4m ago
Teague provided 10 points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 11 assists, and a rebound across 32 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Timberwolves.
Teague has been a dime-dropping machine over the past couple of weeks, as he's registered double-digit assist totals in four of his past five games, which included a season-high 18 assists against Charlotte. Teague currently ranks sixth in the league with an average of 8.2 assists per game.
Karl-Anthony Towns MIN C
Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Snags 12 boards in loss10m ago
Towns tallied 28 points (11-26 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 38 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Suns.
Towns has scored in single digits only once this season and is on a six-game streak of double-digit rebound performances. Towns' defensive prowess has been a blemish on Towns' otherwise superior numbers in the past, but the 22-year old has taken a step forward in that department this season
Dario Saric MIN PF
Timberwolves' Dario Saric: Double-doubles in spot start22m ago
Saric recorded 15 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 35 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 loss to the Suns.
Saric drew the start in place of Taj Gibson (personal) and performed admirably despite the loss. Since joining the team a month ago, Saric has strung together some impressive games off the bench, but it's safe to say that his opportunities have suffered some variance after leaving the Sixers. He's averaging 10.8 points and 5.6 rebounds over 14 games with Minnesota, which is a significant dip from his usual numbers.
Deandre Ayton PHO C
Suns' Deandre Ayton: Records 17th double-double in win31m ago
Ayton turned in 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot across 26 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 win over the Timberwolves.
Ayton's double-double inches him closer to the top 10 in that category, which further illustrates his stranglehold on the Rookie of the Year race. Ayton has single-handedly reinvented the Suns' interior, and while Phoenix is still struggling, Ayton and Devin Booker provide a solid core to build around moving forward.
T.J. Warren PHO SF
Suns' T.J. Warren: Puts up 21 points in win39m ago
Warren posted 21 points (8-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot across 33 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 win over the Timberwolves.
Both Warren and Mikal Bridges are likely to see a change in production due to the impending trade of Trevor Ariza. The Suns will receive Kelly Oubre Jr. and Austin Rivers in the deal, and while Warren's starting gig at the four appears to be safe, it could be bad news for Bridges, who will likely play behind Oubre at the three. Warren has logged three outings with 20 or more points since returning from injury.
Devin Booker PHO SG
Suns' Devin Booker: Returns from injury, scores 281h ago
Booker posted 28 points (10-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and seven assists across 36 minutes in Saturday's 107-99 win over the Timberwolves.
Booker looked excellent after a six-game absence, as the Suns locked in their first two-game win streak since 2017. Phoenix lost five of six games without Booker, who is the unquestioned leader of the team in his fourth season. He was averaging 23.5 points and 6.7 assists prior to his injury, and he should return to form moving forward.
Jack Eichel BUF C
Sabres' Jack Eichel: Riding sweet streak9m ago
Eichel scored twice Saturday in a 4-3 shootout loss to Washington.
One of the goals came on the power play. Eichel is riding a five-game, nine-point scoring streak that includes seven goals. Eichel's 41 points put him just outside the NHL's top-10 scorers. He's already cruising alongside talents like Johnny Gaudreau, Brayden Point and Leon Draisaitl, and will likely battle Point to be the best of that lot.
Brock Boeser VAN RW
Canucks' Brock Boeser: Dazzles in home rout10m ago
Boeser tallied a goal and an assist to complement a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 5-1 home win over the Flyers.
Scoring is up across the league, but that doesn't make Boeser's progressive output of 20 points (11 goals, nine assists) through 22 games any less exciting. The Minnesota native owns a robust shooting percentage (16.0) over 92 career contests, and with further consideration to his heavy power-play role, Boeser checks all the boxes when it comes to qualifying as a legitimate fantasy stud.
Jacob Markstrom VAN G
Canucks' Jacob Markstrom: Close to perfect in latest outing19m ago
Markstrom denied 31 of 32 shots Saturday en route to a 5-1 home win over the Flyers.
Markstrom shouldn't be faulted for the lone goal he allowed, as Scott Laughton blew past two defenders and came at the Vancouver goalie too quickly for him to react. A 28-year-old from Sweden, Markstrom is on a roll with four consecutive wins and a mere seven goals permitted over that span. He's the clear-cut No. 1 netminder for a Canucks team that is 5-3-2 over its last 10 games to gain some ground in a competitive Pacific Division.
Rasmus Dahlin BUF D
Sabres' Rasmus Dahlin: First three-point game of career22m ago
Dahlin had a goal and two assists Saturday in a 4-3 shootout loss to Washington.
Dahlin had gone seven games without registering any points, so this was a nice breakout. It was also his first three-point game in the NHL. Dahlin is already a horse on the ice; his future is very bright.
Alex Ovechkin WAS LW
Capitals' Alex Ovechkin: Still on streak28m ago
Ovechkin extended his point streak to an NHL career-high 14 games with a goal and then decided the shootout Saturday in a 4-3 win over Buffalo.
Ovie has scored at least one goal in six straight games and has 29 this season. And he has 23 points, including an incredible 17 goals, during his point streak. There is no slowing Ovechkin down.
Alex Lyon PHI G
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Decent in emergency showing33m ago
Lyon stopped 17 of 19 shots in relief of injured starter Anthony Stolarz (lower body) in Saturday's 5-1 road loss to the Canucks.
Lyon stepped in for Stolarz approximately halfway through the first period, and the latter of the two rookies performed reasonably well considering Lyon hadn't had much prep time with the parent club and was biding his time with AHL Lehigh Valley before his promotion Thursday. The Flyers have a messy situation in goal, as Brian Elliott (lower body), Michal Neuvirth (personal) and Stolarz are all tending to one matter or another ahead of Tuesday's home game against the Red Wings.
