T.Y. Hilton IND WR
Colts' T.Y. Hilton: Another modest outing in loss2h ago
Hilton brought in five of seven targets for 41 yards and fumbled once in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.
Hilton checked in second behind Jack Doyle in both catches and yards on a night when Jacoby Brissett managed just 158 passing yards overall. The FIU product's fantasy upside continues to be capped by Brissett's penchant for short throws, as he's now averaged 11.5 yards per catch or less in four of his last five contests. On a more positive note, Hilton's reception total was his best since he'd also tallied five catches in Week 9 against the Texans. He'll look to boost his overall production against the Ravens in Week 16.
Frank Gore IND RB
Colts' Frank Gore: Hits career milestone in loss2h ago
Gore rushed 10 times for 31 yards and brought in three of four targets for 37 yards in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos.
Gore exited the game briefly in the second quarter with a knee injury, but he was able to return to start the second half and became the only other player in NFL history besides Emmitt Smith to post 1,000 yards from scrimmage in 12 consecutive seasons. The 34-year-old unsurprisingly saw a significant drop in workload from Sunday's 36-carry tally in Buffalo's blizzard-like environment, but his receiving yardage total was his second highest total of the season. Gore will now have nine days to prepare for a Week 16 tilt against the Ravens.
Jacoby Brissett IND QB
Colts' Jacoby Brissett: Lackluster showing in loss3h ago
Brissett completed 17 of 30 passes for 158 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Thursday's 25-13 loss to the Broncos. He also rushed five times for 18 yards and a touchdown.
The second-year signal caller was under 200 yards passing for the fourth straight game, and he hasn't managed a completion percentage above 60 percent since Week 9. The high point of Brissett's night came on a seven-yard first-quarter scoring run that capped off a seven-play, 50-yard drive, his fourth rushing touchdown of the season. Brissett's production in the last month has been largely underwhelming from a fantasy perspective, but he offers some solid rushing upside and has impressively limited his interceptions to only seven over 14 games. He'll look to improve his numbers versus the Ravens in Week 16.
Demaryius Thomas DEN WR
Broncos' Demaryius Thomas: Leads team in receiving yardage3h ago
Thomas brought in five of eight targets for 69 yards in Thursday's 25-13 win over the Colts.
Thomas' receiving yardage led all pass catchers on the night and his 13.8 YPC was his best since Week 3. The eight-year veteran has come on in the last two games, posting a combined 13 receptions for 162 yards, and he's now posted at a catch of at least 20 yards in three straight contests. With Brock Osweiler slated to remain under center for the Broncos' final two games in the wake of Trevor Siemian's shoulder injury, Thomas' production could continue to see a slight uptick.
C.J. Anderson DEN RB
Broncos' C.J. Anderson: Generates season-best rushing total3h ago
Anderson rushed 30 times for 158 yards and failed to bring in his only target in Thursday's 25-13 win over the Colts.
The 26-year-old saw almost three times the rushing touches of backfield mate Devontae Booker, reconfirming his status as the clear-cut lead back. Anderson's rushing yardage was easily his highest of the season, and he's now logged 52 rushes overall in the last pair of contests. He'll look to continue parlaying his robust volume into strong production when he faces the Redskins in a Week 16 road tilt.
Brock Osweiler DEN QB
Broncos' Brock Osweiler: Stellar in emergency duty3h ago
Osweiler completed 12 of 17 passes for 194 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Thursday's 25-13 win over the Colts. He also rushed three times for 17 yards and another score and completed a two-point conversion pass.
Osweiler came on in relief of Trevor Siemian (shoulder) in the first quarter and directed an 11-play, 75-yard scoring drive on his second possession, which he capped off with an 18-yard scoring scamper. The former second-round pick subsequently led marches of 79 and 67 yards that culminated in touchdown passes to Cody Latimer and Jeff Heuerman, respectively. Thursday's appearance was arguably the 27-year-old's best of 2017, and with news that Siemian is expected to miss the last two games of the season with his injury, Osweiler will have a chance to make positive impression heading into the offseason.
Cesar Puello TB RF
Diamondbacks' Cesar Puello: Signs with D-backs11h ago
The D-backs signed Puello to a minor-league deal Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
He'll likely begin 2018 at Triple-A Reno, but Puello could make a push for a bench role in Arizona with a strong spring. In 1,039 career plate appearances at Triple-A, he's hit .289/.379/.447 line while showing a useful combination of power and speed. At the very least, Puello is an interesting name to file away for the reserve rounds of deep NL-only leagues.
Hunter Cervenka MIA RP
Marlins' Hunter Cervenka: Designated for assignment11h ago
Cervenka was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday.
Cervenka pitched in five games out of the bullpen for the Marlins last season, allowing eight earned runs off one hit and eight walks in 4.2 innings. The 27-year-old southpaw spent most of the year in Triple-A, where he accumulated a 4.58 ERA and 39:26 K:BB.
Mike Broadway WAS SP
Royals' Mike Broadway: Signs NRI deal with Royals11h ago
Broadway agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training with Kansas City on Thursday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.
Broadway began the 2017 season with Washington, but agreed to a minor-league deal with the Rays after being released by the Nationals in June. He faired extremely well with Triple-A Durham during his six appearances -- posting a 0.60 ERA and 0.47 WHIP over 15 innings -- which was a stark contrast to his time with Washington's Triple-A squad. The 30-year-old last competed in the majors with San Francisco in 2016, and will look to earn a roster spot with the Royals come the spring.
Jonny Venters TB RP
Rays' Jonny Venters: Returns to Tampa Bay13h ago
Venters inked a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Rays on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Venters had spent the last two seasons within the Rays' organization, and will return to the club with a new minor-league deal for 2018. During the past year, he was busy recovering from another Tommy John surgery, which only allowed him to pitch a total of 23.2 innings between four minor-league affiliates. Although the 32-year-old is attempting to return from the third such surgery of his career, Venters could return to the big leagues for the first time since 2012, when he pitched in 66 games for the Braves.
Colton Murray PHI RP
Rays' Colton Murray: Signs deal with Tampa Bay14h ago
Murray agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Rays on Thursday, MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reports.
Murray tossed 40.2 innings for Triple-A Lehigh within the Phillies' system in 2017, posting a 5.53 ERA and 1.59 WHIP with a 45:15 K:BB. The right-hander didn't see any time on a major-league mound last year, but appeared in 24 games out of the bullpen for Philadelphia in 2016, although he wasn't able to secure any sort of role and tallied just a 6.25 ERA during those outings. Looking ahead, Murray will provide organizational depth for Tampa Bay, but could wind up starting the 2018 campaign in Triple-A Durham.
Brandon Snyder WAS LF
Rays' Brandon Snyder: Gets spring invite from Rays14h ago
Snyder signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Thursday which includes an invitation to spring training, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
The 31-year-old spent all of last season with Triple-A Syracuse, compiling a .263/.356/.490 line with 23 homers and 77 RBI in 121 games. He's seen brief major-league stints in five seasons since 2010, though he's struggled to a .242 batting average over that stretch (120 games). While Snyder has flashed some pop in the past, he doesn't figure to be anything more than an organizational depth piece next season.
Klay Thompson GS SG
Warriors' Klay Thompson: Goes for 25 in victory1h ago
Thompson tallied 25 points (10-18 FG, 5-5 3Pt) and five rebounds across 37 minutes in Thursday's 112-97 win over the Mavericks.
With several Warriors starters sidelined, Thompson and Kevin Durant did a lot of the heavy lifting Thursday night, as they scored 61 points between them on the way to the team's 23rd win. Thompson didn't do much besides scoring in his stat line despite averaging a career-best 4.2 rebounds in his seventh season. His 2.6 assists in 2017 are also close to a career best. Although he's typically the third scoring option for Golden State, he's a must-start in every format.
Kevin Durant GS SF
Warriors' Kevin Durant: Records double-double, 36 points Thursday1h ago
Durant posted 36 points (15-23 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists and two blocked shots in 34 minutes during Thursday's 112-97 win over the Mavericks.
With a host of starters out on Thursday, Durant and Klay Thompson took over the game after a lackluster first quarter and eventually put the game out of reach. Durant's averaged 28 points, seven rebounds and 6.6 assists since returning from injury with two double-doubles during that span. Tonight's double-double was his fifth of the season. The Warriors hope that his injury woes are behind him, as he'll be a key ingredient in getting their ticket punched to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year.
Michael Beasley NY PF
Knicks' Michael Beasley: Goes for 15 points on 16 shots4h ago
Beasley tallied 15 points (7-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 20 minutes during a 111-104 win over the Nets on Thursday.
Beasley scored in double figures for the fifth time in the last seven games in the victory. He was able to get off an astounding 16 field goal attempts in just 20 minutes of action. If Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is forced to miss any time, that could open up a larger scoring role for Beasley.
Courtney Lee NY SG
Knicks' Courtney Lee: Totals season-high 27 points in win4h ago
Lee contributed 27 points (9-17 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 36 minutes during a 111-104 win over the Nets on Thursday.
Lee's 27 points marked a season high and a team high in the victory. It was also his fourth 20-point effort of the season. Lee isn't always the most consistent scorer, but he has been fairly consistent lately, with 11 double-digit scoring efforts in his last 13 games. With Kristaps Porzingis (knee) leaving the game, it could open up more scoring opportunities for Lee if the injury forces the big man to miss games.
Spencer Dinwiddie BKN PG
Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie: Scores career-high 26 points Thursday4h ago
Dinwiddie recorded 26 points (9-17 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block across 35 minutes during a 111-104 loss to the Knicks on Thursday.
Dinwiddie's 26 points marked a new career high as he also flirted with a triple-double in the tremendous performance. He typically doesn't light it up with this much scoring, but his assist numbers have been reliable lately, as he has at least six assists in his last 14 games. Dinwiddie looks locked in as a strong performer, possibly even after D'Angelo Russell (knee) returns to action.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson BKN SF
Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Scores career-high 25 points in loss4h ago
Hollis-Jefferson totaled 25 points (10-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT), seven rebounds, four steals, three assists and two blocks across 37 minutes during a 111-104 loss to the Knicks on Thursday.
Hollis-Jefferson's 25 points marked a new career high and it could definitely be the best performance of his career as he racked up stats across the board. It marked the first time all season that he has had at least two rebounds, assists, steals and blocks in the same game. Hollis-Jefferson has been phenomenal recently, with an average of 18.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.0 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.2 steals per game.
John Gibson ANA G
Ducks' John Gibson: Steals road win against Blues1h ago
Gibson saved 29 of 30 shots during Thursday's 3-1 win over St. Louis.
Two games with Ryan Getzlaf back in the lineup, and two wins for Gibson. Don't underestimate how important a true No. 1 center is to success, and the Ducks have been -- and still are -- riddled with injuries. Surprisingly, the poor fantasy setup hasn't considerably hurt Gibson's value. The 24-year-old American has 10 wins and a .922 save percentage, so with goals up across the league, his 2.83 GAA is also a serviceable mark. Don't forget, Gibson's also been a matchup-proof option in the past.
Tyler Ennis MIN LW
Wild's Tyler Ennis: Nets game winner against Toronto1h ago
Ennis scored the game-winning goal Thursday against the Maple Leafs.
Ennis only saw 9:25 of ice time in the victory, but he made the most of it, beating Leafs' netminder Frederik Andersen with a sharp-angle shot to open the scoring in the first period. The fourth-liner has six goals in 30 games and is a depth contributor for the Wild. He doesn't play on the power play and usually doesn't even reach 10 minutes of ice time most nights, making Ennis only of value in very deep leagues.
Frederik Andersen TOR G
Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Comes up short against Wild1h ago
Andersen made 24 saves on 26 shots in Thursday's loss to the Wild.
Andersen didn't play poorly, but the Maple Leafs couldn't muster much offense and ended up getting shutout by Alex Stalock and the Wild. The workhorse netminder has picked up back-to-back losses, but he hasn't been at fault in either of them. With an impressive 17-10-1 record and .922 save percentage, the 28-year-old remains a must-start in fantasy. The Leafs are going through a bit of a slump without their star forward Auston Matthews (upper body), but they remain an Eastern-Conference powerhouse and should get back on track in the near-future. Keep Andersen rolling, as he's been dynamite this season and will be back in the win column in no time.
Matt Murray PIT G
Penguins' Matt Murray: Defeated in Vegas1h ago
Murray allowed two goals on 26 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Golden Knights on Thursday.
He played nearly as well as former teammate Marc-Andre Fleury in the opposing net, but a tally by defenseman Jon Merrill (his first of the season) at the 8:17 mark of the third period proved to be the difference. Thursday marked the first start since Nov. 27 -- a span of seven games -- for Murray, who was held out with a lower-body injury. Now that he's healthy, expect him to be between the pipes more often than not, starting Saturday against the lowly Coyotes.
Kevin Roy ANA C
Ducks' Kevin Roy: Makes statement in third2h ago
Roy scored the game-winning goal and an insurance tally during Thursday's 3-1 win over St. Louis.
In an odd sequence of transactions, Roy was demoted to AHL San Diego on Monday only to be recalled the same night following Corey Perry's knee injury in the first period of a 3-2 home win over Carolina. The Anaheim brass extended the rookie an olive branch with a first-line gig and spot on the No. 1 power-play unit Thursday, and Roy might have earned a roster spot moving forward. History has proven Ryan Getzlaf is an elite driver of offense, so the speedy Northeastern alum is a player of interest. Roy has the potential to score his way into fantasy relevance, and he might currently be positioned to do so.
Alex Stalock MIN G
Wild's Alex Stalock: Blanks Maple Leafs2h ago
Stalock stopped all 28 shots in Thursday's win over Toronto.
Stalock is taking over the Minnesota crease with Devan Dubnyk (lower body) sidelined, and things are off to a great start. The Wild have now won four straight games and Stalock has been excellent in his three most recent outings. His 5-3-1 record and .916 save percentage are nothing special, but Stalock could be worth a pick-up while Dubnyk is out.
