Allen Hurns DAL WR
Cowboys' Allen Hurns: Targeted twice in shutout4m ago
Hurns caught one of his two targets for a nine-yard gain during Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Colts.
There was a time when Hurns was arguably the Cowboys' top receiver. Now, with Amari Cooper in the fold and the likes of Blake Jarwin developing, Hurns hasn't cracked double digits in receiving yards since Week 10. The Cowboys' pass offense has run hot and cold and Cooper has dominated what success Dallas has had. Sunday does offer a solid opportunity for Hurns to get back on track as Dallas hosts a bottom-10 pass defense in Tampa Bay, one that is surrendering 274 receiving yards per game.
Jonathan Allen WAS DE
Redskins' Jonathan Allen: Limited snaps, still delivers7m ago
Allen recorded five tackles (four solo) and two sacks across 29 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
Allen only played in 58 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday -- compared to his 75 percent season average. The second-year pro now seven sacks on the season to go along with 51 tackles.
Sharrod Neasman ATL DB
Falcons' Sharrod Neasman: Ties career-high in tackles7m ago
Neasman registered six combined tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss during Sunday's 40-14 win against Arizona.
The third-year safety forced some crucial stops in Sunday's thumping of Arizona, twice bringing down ball carriers short of the sticks on third down. Neasman has yet to notch a start in 2018, but last week he fielded 63.3 percent of the defensive snaps (his most since Nov. 4), while finishing tied for second on the team in total tackles. Facing a banged up Cam Newton (shoulder) who's coming off a Monday Night outing in which he refused to attempt a single pass more than 20 yards downfield, Neasman is more likely to come up and defend the run than be forced to account for the deep ball when the Falcons travel to Carolina on Sunday.
Rod Smith DAL RB
Cowboys' Rod Smith: Collects 14 yards in shutout11m ago
Smith ran for 14 yards on three carries during Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Colts.
Smith has now carried the ball at least three times in three straight games after just five carries in his previous five games combined. He's averaged 4.3 yard per carry during that span. Look for Dallas to ride Ezekiel Elliott even more than they already have down the stretch as they look to secure the division crown. What carries Smith does garner will be up against one of the league's worst run defense, a Tampa Bay squad giving up 4.8 yards per carry.
Ryan Kerrigan WAS OLB
Redskins' Ryan Kerrigan: Continues dominant season15m ago
Kerrigan recorded six tackles (five solo), two sacks and a forced fumble across 46 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
Kerrigan was elected to his third-straight Pro Bowl on Tuesday night after a dominating performance in Sunday's victory. He now has 11 sacks on the season to go along with 41 tackles. Kerrigan will look to wreak havoc on the Titans this Sunday in a pivotal showdown with major playoff implications.
Benny Cunningham CHI RB
Bears' Benny Cunningham: Loses yardage in win19m ago
Cunningham lost a yard on his only carry during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Packers.
The touch was Cunningham's first since Week 6. He's battled an ankle injury in the interim, but the lack of action is most certainly primarily due to Jordan Howard's and, to a lesser extent, Tarik Cohen's prominent roles in the run game. Cunningham hasn't had more than three carries in a game this season and, even if something were to change Sunday, the 49ers and their top-10 run defense are unlikely to give up much to the veteran back.
Matt Harvey CIN SP
Angels' Matt Harvey: Signs with Angels3h ago
Harvey signed a one-year contract with the Angels on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Harvey heads to Los Angeles on a one-year deal worth up to $14 million, which includes $3 million of incentives, according to Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com. The veteran right-hander had a rough start to the 2018 season with the Mets but looked significantly better after being traded to the Reds, posting a 4.24 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 111:28 K:BB over 24 starts (128 innings). The 29-year-old will help round out the Angels starting rotation with Shohei Ohtani (elbow) undergoing Tommy John surgery in October and unable to pitch in 2019.
Zach Putnam CHW RP
Red Sox's Zach Putnam: Signs with Red Sox4h ago
Putnam (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
Putnam missed the entire 2018 season while recover from Tommy John surgery that he underwent in June 0f 2017. The right-hander should be fully healthy for spring training, where he'll compete for a spot in Boston's Opening Day bullpen. Putnam has proven to be an effective reliever over parts of seven major-league seasons, posting a combined 3.20 ERA and 9.6 K/9 across 152 career innings.
Rosell Herrera KC SS
Royals' Rosell Herrera: Cast off 40-man8h ago
Herrera was designated for assignment by the Royals on Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Herrera was cast off Kansas City's 40-man roster in order to free up a spot for Terrance Gore, who was signed to a split contract. The 26-year-old appeared in 86 big-league games in 2018, hitting .234/.386/.317 with one homer and three steals.
Daniel Descalso CHC 2B
Cubs' Daniel Descalso: Reaches deal with Cubs11h ago
Descalso signed with the Cubs on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.
The veteran utility man had a career season in 2018, coming to the plate 423 times and recording career bests in homers (13), walk rate (15.1 percent), ISO (.198) and wRC+ (111) while hitting .238/.353/.436. He's not a star by any means and has just one season with an above-average batting line under his belt, but his ability to perform capably around the infield and in left field while providing some value at the plate is a great fit for a Cubs' roster which includes a number of flexible players already. He won't be a first-choice option anywhere for the Cubs but should play often at various spots around the diamond for Joe Maddon, a manager who is certainly fond of rotation.
Manuel Margot SD CF
Padres' Manuel Margot: Likely done with winter ball12h ago
Margot sustained a bone bruise when he fouled a ball off his left foot in a Dominican Winter League game earlier this month, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
General manager A.J. Preller acknowledged that Margot probably will be shut down for the rest of the winter-ball season as a result of the injury, but the outfielder's availability for spring training won't be in any peril. That being said, the lack of opportunity to gain momentum before spring arrives could hinder Margot's efforts to claim the everyday center field gig on the heels of a disappointing 2018 campaign in which he slashed .245/.292/.384 across 519 plate appearances. Margot still projects as the frontrunner for those duties due to his stellar defense and encouraging track record at the dish prior to last season, but he'll still face a challenge from the toolsy Franchy Cordero, who will vie for the starting gig now that he's made a full recovery from elbow surgery.
Michael Fulmer DET SP
Tigers' Michael Fulmer: On track for spring training12h ago
General manager Al Avila said last week that Fulmer has regained full range of motion in his surgically repaired right knee and remains on track to be ready for the start of spring training, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
A report earlier this month suggested that Fulmer was slightly behind in his recovery from surgery to address a damaged meniscus and frayed cartilage, but Avila's comments paint a rosier picture of the right-hander's recovery. Fulmer will presumably test out the health of his knee in workouts later this winter, and if he gets the green light from his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, the 25-year-old should report to spring training without any limitations.
Bradley Beal WAS SG
Wizards' Bradley Beal: Double-doubles in loss6m ago
Beal provided 29 points (11-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Hawks.
Beal picked up most of the offensive slack, shooting 64.7 percent from the field while the rest of the Wizard's starting lineup shot a woeful 35.4 percent. The seventh-year guard continues to produce at a tremendous rate, recording his second-straight double-double, and reaching the 20-point threshold for the ninth straight game. Beal is a fantasy star and will continued to be counted on to play heavy minutes as the Wizards are on the outside looking in of the playoff picture.
Tyreke Evans IND PG
Pacers' Tyreke Evans: Plays 14 minutes in Tuesday's loss9m ago
Evans had four points (2-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, and one assist in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 92-91 loss to the Cavaliers.
Evans returned to the lineup following a one-game absence with a knee injury. The 29-year-old veteran failed to make much of a statistical impact while Victor Oladipo was recently sidelined for an extended stretch, and given the team's slower pace of play, it seems pretty unlikely that Evans will be valuable in standard leagues unless a trade (or injuries) open up significant minutes.
Trevor Ariza WAS SG
Wizards' Trevor Ariza: Six swipes in Wizards debut11m ago
Ariza recorded 19 points (6-17 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, six steals and four assists in 38 minutes Tuesday against the Hawks.
Ariza produced a well-rounded stat-line in his Wizards debut, tying a career-best with six steals. The veteran wing continued his shooting woes Tuesday, making just 6-of-17 shots from the field, but appears to be guaranteed a role large enough to continue getting sufficient offensive opportunities going forward. If Ariza's able to raise his lowly 37.9 percent shooting from the field, he could be a valuable addition in standard formats as he has the ability to provide threes, rebounds and steals at strong rates when on.
Larry Nance Jr. CLE PF
Cavaliers' Larry Nance: Fills stat sheet in Tuesday's win15m ago
Nance delivered 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 16 rebounds, six assists, three steals, and one block in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 92-91 win over the Pacers.
Nance hauled in a career high rebounding total while recording at least six assists for the fourth straight game (and fifth time in the last six games). Nance also recorded his third double-double of the season and second in the last three contests while swiping at least three steals for the seventh time through 29 appearances. Expect him to continue racking up counting stats in the short-term while frontcourt mates Tristan Thompson (foot), Kevin Love (toe), and John Henson (wrist) are all sidelined.
Ante Zizic CLE C
Cavaliers' Ante Zizic: Plays 14 minutes in Tuesday's win25m ago
Zizic had two points (1-3 FG), four rebounds, two assists, and one block in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 92-91 win over the Pacers.
Zizic returned to a reserve role after starting Sunday's matchup with the 76ers. With the Cavaliers dealing with frontcourt injuries to Tristan Thompson (foot), Kevin Love (toe), and John Henson (wrist), Zizic is a good bet to keep seeing consistent backup center minutes behind Larry Nance, at least for another week.
David Nwaba CLE SG
Cavaliers' David Nwaba: Scoreless in Tuesday's start30m ago
Nwaba finished with zero points (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 92-91 win over the Pacers.
Nwaba moved into the starting lineup but couldn't buy a bucket. He has never been known to fill up the box score, and his modest per-game averages limit his value to the very deepest leagues.
Marcus Kruger CHI C
Blackhawks' Marcus Kruger: Departs Tuesday's game26m ago
Kruger left Tuesday's game versus the Predators after taking Ryan Hartman's elbow to his face, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.
Kruger started bleeding immediately and went straight to the dressing room. The extent of his injury isn't clear, but if he doesn't return Kruger will look to get healthy for Thursday's game versus the Stars.
Ben Bishop DAL G
Stars' Ben Bishop: Back on ice32m ago
Bishop (undisclosed) returned for the third period of Tuesday's game versus the Flames, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Bishop was evaluated after taking a hit behind the net, but he's been cleared for action. He'll re-enter the game with a 2-0 lead.
Jimmy Howard DET G
Red Wings' Jimmy Howard: Tagged as day-to-day39m ago
Coach Jeff Blashill said Howard is day-to-day after hurting his back during warmups of Tuesday's game versus the Flyers, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Jonathan Bernier took over as the starter in Tuesday's game. Howard isn't expected to be available for Wednesday's practice. The team will be forced to make a recall if Howard is unable to play in Thursday's game versus the Hurricanes.
Jason Pominville BUF RW
Sabres' Jason Pominville: Exits after taking friendly fire43m ago
Pominville left Tuesday's game versus the Panthers after teammate Rasmus Ristolainen ran into him at center ice, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Pominville didn't return to the game and Sabres coach Phil Housley had no update afterwards. The team may make an immediate recall with the NHL roster freeze kicking in on Wednesday and since the Sabres only have one more healthy forward, Remi Elie, remaining.
Ben Bishop DAL G
Stars' Ben Bishop: Leaves after collission1h ago
Bishop was hit behind the net and left Tuesday's game versus the Flames, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.
Anton Khudobin entered the crease while Bishop is evaluated. If Bishop doesn't return to this contest, expect an update on his condition during the postgame presser.
Jonathan Bernier DET G
Red Wings' Jonathan Bernier: Allows one goal too many1h ago
Bernier permitted three goals on 33 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 road loss to the Flyers.
Bernier wasn't scheduled to start in this game, but No. 1 backstop Jimmy Howard sustained a back injury during warmups to render him unavailable. While the former was unable to nail down his first win in the last four games, Bernier at least matched the save percentage (0.909) of counterpart Carter Hart, who nabbed the victory in his NHL debut. Fantasy owners should take what they can get from Bernier since he rarely starts, though that could change depending on how bad Howard's latest injury turns out to be.
