    • Roquan Smith CHI ILB
      Bears' Roquan Smith: Notches 13 tackles
      16m ago

      Smith recorded 13 tackles in Chicago's 31-28 loss to the Dolphins.

      Smith led the Bears in tackles by posting the best fantasy performance of his rookie season. Coming into this contest, he had just 18 tackles in four games, but his production will likely ensure that he'll be added to many fantasy rosters in the upcoming week. Playing in the middle of a loaded defense certainly could provide Smith with the potential to become a weekly IDP starter.

    • Cody Parkey CHI K
      Bears' Cody Parkey: Tallies four points
      18m ago

      Parkey missed his only field-goal attempt in Chicago's Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

      Although Parkey missed a field goal for just the second time in 11 attempts, he was perfect on four extra-point attempts to keep his fantasy day from being a total loss. This was only the second time this season that he failed to reach double-digit points, so he'll continue to be a solid weekly fantasy option.

    • Dion Sims CHI TE
      Bears' Dion Sims: Another invisible performance
      19m ago

      Sims didn't see a target in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

      After catching a pair of passes for 9 yards in the season opener, Sims has failed to see a target in any game since. Unless teammate Trey Burton is forced to miss time, it's unlikely that Sims will be a consistent fantasy contributor in 2018.

      Bears' Josh Bellamy: Quiet in Week 6
      20m ago

      Bellamy failed to see a target in Chicago's Week 6 loss to the Dolphins.

      Bellamy has been targeted just three times this season, and he's emerged as little more than a bit player in the Chicago offense.

      Zane Gonzalez: Nearing full health after groin tear
      22m ago

      Gonzalez had been kicking with a slightly torn groin before the Browns released him in September, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

      Gonzalez reportedly suffered the injury while warming up prior to the Browns' Week 2 game against the Saints, but he didn't disclose the issue to Cleveland's medical staff until halftime. Though a source told Schefter that most injuries of this nature typically sideline kickers for "a legit three weeks," Gonzalez continued to play through the groin problem, which may have contributed to him missing two field goals in the Browns' 21-18 loss. Now nearly a month removed from being cut loose by the Browns, Gonzalez is feeling healthy and is expected to begin trying out for clubs before the end of October, though it's uncertain that he'll end up finding work. The 23-year-old has converted just 17 of 25 career field-goal attempts (68 percent) and has missed three of 31 extra-point tries.

    • Kevin White CHI WR
      Bears' Kevin White: Invisible in Bears offense
      33m ago

      White failed to see a target in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

      White has yet to see a single target in 2018, and it seems very unlikely he'll emerge as a fantasy option unless the Bears suffer multiple injuries at wide receiver.

      Red Sox's Chris Sale: Avoids serious illness
      10h ago

      Manager Alex Cora stated that Sale's illness is "nothing serious" and he's expected to join the team in Houston sometime Monday, Rustin Dodd of The Athletic reports.

      Sale was admitted to a Boston hospital with a stomach illness Sunday, but after being observed for one night he's expected to rejoin the club. Assuming he doesn't suffer any further setbacks, Sale should remain on schedule to pitch Thursday in Game 5 as planned.

      Eovaldi will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

      Eovaldi put together a quality outing in his first start of the postseason, tossing seven innings while allowing one run and punching out five. With the series tied 1-1, manager Alex Cora will hand Eovaldi the ball in Houston against a stacked Astros lineup.

      Sale was admitted to the hospital due to a stomach illness Sunday, Rob Bradford of WEEI Sports Radio Network reports.

      Sale wasn't at the ballpark for Game 2 of the ALCS against the Astros on Monday after being sent to the hospital. He'll be held overnight for observation and the extent of the illness has yet to be identified. Sale is currently scheduled to pitch Game 5, although that could change if the illness is deemed severe.

      16h ago

      Grandal is expected to start behind the dish for Game 3 of the NLCS against Milwaukee on Monday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

      Manager Dave Roberts was clearly not pleased by Grandal's performance in Game 1, which led to his benching in the second game of the series. Roberts stated that he believes Grandal and starting pitcher Walker Buehler have good chemistry, so he's giving Grandal another chance in a pivotal postseason contest.

      Astros' Charlie Morton: Draws Game 4 assignment
      18h ago

      Morton will start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

      Morton was not needed during the Astros' ALDS sweep of the Indians, but with the ALCS being a best-of-7 series, he'll get the start for Game 4. No word has come forth as to who he will face from Boston, however, but he'll have to get through a potent Red Sox offense in his home start Wednesday.

      Astros' Dallas Keuchel: Tabbed as Game 3 starter
      18h ago

      Keuchel will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Red Sox, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

      This wasn't a matter of if, but rather a matter of when. Keuchel will now line up for the first game of the series taking place in Houston, though it's currently unclear who will take the ball for Boston. As things stand now, this would potentially line the southpaw up for a Game 7 assignment should the series go that many games.

      Green's minutes will likely be restricted for the "first few games", Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

      Coach Steve Kerr mention after practice Sunday that he will likely have a minutes restriction on Green (knee) for the first few games of the season. It's not clear, however, how severe the restriction will be. Forwards Kevon Looney, Andre Iguodala and Jordan Bell may see more minutes as a result.

      Livingston suffered an undisclosed injury during practice Sunday but will be good to go for the preseason opener Tuesday, Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

      Apparently, Livingston "tweak" something during Sunday's practice making him miss the later scrimmage. Coach Steve Kerr reported though that Livingston will be alright to play in Tuesday's season opener against Oklahoma City.

      Lee (neck) is "good to go" for the season opener Wednesday, Steve Popper of The Bergen Record reports.

      After dealing with a strained neck basically all preseason long, Lee finally stated that he is good to go for Wednesday's opener against Atlanta. The Western Kentucky product averaged 12.0 points and 2.9 rebounds over 76 games played last year, but turning 33 years old last week, he may end up taking on a lighter role in 2018-19.

      Westbrook (knee) still hasn't been cleared for Tuesday's season opener at Golden State, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

      The Thunder have been extremely cautious with the former NBA MVP and have been "very controlling" of his workouts since Westbrook underwent knee surgery back in September. It's still unknown what his status is heading into the matchup with the Warriors on opening night. If for some reason Westbrook can't play, guards Dennis Schroder and Raymond Felton may see more-than-expected minutes.

      Islanders' Sebastian Aho: Currently toiling in minors
      18m ago

      Aho has one assist through four games with AHL Bridgeport to start the 2018-19 campaign.

      It appears that Aho will have to continue biding his time in the minors after recording four points to go along with a minus-5 rating over his first 22 NHL games in 2017-18. The Islanders signed Luca Sbisa to a one-year deal late in the offseason, and one would think that transaction never would have transpired if Aho was ready to consistently hold a spot at the top level.

    • Sonny Milano CLB LW
      Blue Jackets' Sonny Milano: Struggling early on
      25m ago

      Milano has been held without a point through the season's first five games.

      Surprisingly, Milano has only averaged 7:39 of ice time over that span, so it's not like been given much of a chance to shine. Considering the fourth-year winger is stuck behind three established offensive producers in Artemi Panarin, Nick Foligno and Boone Jenner on the Columbus depth chart, it will probably take an injury up front for Milano to see increased playing time. After Milano dropped 14 goals (20.3 shooting percentage) and 22 points over 55 games for the Blue Jackets last season, we thought he'd see more playing time out of the gate.

    • Brandon Montour ANA D
      Ducks' Brandon Montour: Stagnant in offensive zone
      9h ago

      Montour racked up three hits and a pair of blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Montour hasn't recorded a point since his goal in the Oct. 3 season-opening road win over the Sharks, but the fifth-year rearguard's been skating for about a minute and a half on both the power play and penalty kill to benefit the Ducks. Anaheim's 2014 second-round (55th overall) draft pick signed a two-year contract extension in June; he's entering his prime as a 24-year-old and should see an uptick in offensive production once the Ducks get healthy up front. Currently, seven of their forwards have injury labels, including captain Ryan Getzlaf (lower body), who hasn't played since Oct. 6.

      Ducks' Rickard Rakell: Unable to buy a goal
      10h ago

      Rakell recorded a game-high six shots but failed to score in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Rakell gets an 'A' for effort, as his heavy shot total alone probably made him worth the pick in most DFS contests using the two-game evening slate. However, poolies in season-long setups were burned by the Swede. Rakell has been held pointless in five straight contests after teasing the masses with his one goal, two-assist output to the detriment of the Sharks in the Oct. 3 road opener.

    • Ben Street ANA C
      Ducks' Ben Street: Resurgence continues with clutch goal
      10h ago

      Street came up with the game-tying goal in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Defenseman Josh Manson rifled a shot from the point that Street was able to get some lumber on for his second career goal. Just when we thought Street's career was at a dead end -- he'd been scoreless over 35 career games between three different NHL clubs ahead of this season -- the 31-year-old center has made the uphill climb toward a meaningful fourth-line role with the Ducks. Street is up to three points through six games, and he should continue to see action at the top level since Anaheim is currently dealing with injuries to seven of its forwards.

      Ducks' Adam Henrique: Redirects three shots in road victory

      Henrique blocked three shots in Sunday's 3-2 road win over the Blues.

      Henrique was held off the scoresheet here, but he's tallied at least one goal or assist in every other contest to start the season. As an experienced two-way skater, there will almost never be a game where he is blanked in both the scoring and defensive columns, such as hits and blocked shots.
