Giants' Sterling Shepard: Reportedly unlikely to play6h ago
Shepard is unlikely to play Sunday against Kansas City due to an illness, but he will be evaluated during pregame warmups, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Shepard was a full participant in practice all week, but was added to the injury report Saturday after coming down with the illness. Roger Lewis and Tavarres King would presumably benefit in targets should Shepard ultimately sit out, while Evan Engram could see even more looks at tight end.
Pat Sims CIN DT
Pat Sims: Waived by Bengals9h ago
Sims (calf) was waived by the Bengals on Saturday.
Sims had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a calf injury -- it was going to be his second straight missed contest. Instead, the Bengals opted to release the veteran in order to promote linebacker Hardy Nickerson to the active roster. Sims has recorded 19 tackles (six solo) and zero sacks through eight games this season.
Hardy Nickerson CIN LB
Bengals' Hardy Nickerson: Rejoins Bengals9h ago
Nickerson was promoted to the Bengals' active roster Saturday.
The Bengals needed to add some depth to their linebacking corps with Kevin Minter (elbow) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos. Nickerson has played in seven games with the Bengals so far this season, but is used far more often on special teams than he is on defense.
Bryce Harris NO T
Bryce Harris: Waived by Saints9h ago
Harris was waived by the Saints on Saturday, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.
Harris was signed by the Saints two weeks ago but failed to record a single snap with the team. He was waived in order to make room for linebacker Adam Bighill on the active roster.
Adam Bighill NO LB
Saints' Adam Bighill: Promoted to active roster9h ago
Bighill was promoted to the Saints' active roster Saturday, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.
Bighill has been on and off with the Saints the entire season, spending time between the practice squad and active roster on a monthly basis. Look for him to play a reserve or special teams role with the team Sunday against the Redskins.
Gavin Escobar BAL TE
Gavin Escobar: Waived by Ravens9h ago
Escobar was waived by the Ravens on Saturday.
Escobar was waived in order to make room for Danny Woodhead, who was activated off injured reserve. Escobar only played in two games for the Ravens, but will now get a chance to join another team in need of tight end depth.
Nick Rumbelow SEA RP
Mariners' Nick Rumbelow: Dished to Seattle12h ago
Rumbelow was traded to the Mariners in exchange for minor-league pitchers JP Sears and Juan Then, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Rumbelow, who was recently added to the Yankees' 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, spent all of last season in the minors after missing almost all of 2016 due to Tommy John surgery. The 26-year-old split time between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, posting a combined 1.12 ERA and 0.80 WHIP across 40.1 innings. He's looking to make it back to the majors for the first time since 2015 -- when he compiled a 4.02 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 15.2 innings with the Yankees -- and should have a clearer path in Seattle.
Denzel Keyes NCAT G
Reds' Patrick Kivlehan: Re-signs with Reds19h ago
Kivlehan agreed to a minor-league contract with Cincinnati on Saturday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Kivlehan, who will receive an invitation to spring training, will return to Cincinnati after playing in 115 games with the big-league club last season. He slashed .208/.304/.399 with nine home runs and 26 RBI for the Reds in 2017.
Rosell Herrera COL SS
Reds' Rosell Herrera: Signs with Reds19h ago
Rosell signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Friday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Rosell spent the 2017 season with Triple-A Albuquerque in the Rockies' system, hitting .278/.351/.394 with three home runs, 27 RBI and 20 stolen bases. He will provide organizational depth in the outfield for the Reds and will look to make the team coming out of spring training.
Carlos Pimentel SD SP
Astros' Carlos Pimentel: To serve 56-game suspension2d ago
Pimentel was suspended 56 games for a positive test of Stanozolol, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Pimental only appeared in 14 games for Houston's rookie-league team in 2017, posting a 4.66 ERA and a 21:6 K:BB over 19.1 innings out of the bullpen. He will miss over one-third of the 2018 campaign due to this failed test.
Angel Nesbitt DET RP
Angel Nesbitt: Suspended for 50 games2d ago
Nesbitt was suspended 50 games after testing positive for the stimulant Heptaminol, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Following this announcement, it seems likely that Nesbitt will remain a free agent for a while longer, as the soon-to-be 27-year-old will spend almost a third of the 2018 season on the shelf once he signs with a club. During this past year, he only appeared in 11 professional games -- all coming in the minors -- and sported a 6.08 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 13.1 innings.
Matt Purke NYM RP
Mets' Matt Purke: Signs with Mets2d ago
Purke signed a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with the Mets on Friday.
Purke appeared in 48 games with Triple-A Charlotte in the White Sox's system last season, posting a 3.84 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 65.2 relief innings. The 27-year-old has only pitched in 12 career big-league games -- all coming in 2016 -- but will look to find a home with the Mets this spring.
Nikola Vucevic ORL C
Magic's Nikola Vucevic: Salvages line with defense1h ago
Vucevic finished with just eight points (3-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three steals, two rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 23 minutes during Saturday's 125-85 loss to the Jazz
The Magic were terrible in this one, with the game practically over at half-time. The starters played limited minutes, including Vucevic who saw only 23 minutes. He was able to help owners with three steals and two blocks, but did little else. Since his hot start to the season, he has come back to where we thought he might be heading into opening night. He still remains an excellent option for anyone at the center position.
Kyrie Irving BOS G
Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Scores 30 points in win over Atlanta2h ago
Irving led the Celtics with 30 points (10-12 FG, 5-6 3PT, 5-5 FT), four rebounds and five assists in a 110-99 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
Ironically, the 12 shots taken were his lowest total of the season, despite finishing with his second-highest scoring total of the year. The elite efficiency has to be encouraging too, as Irving was shooting under 40 percent from the field through the first few weeks of November prior to this blow-up. He's also hitting just 34 percent of his three's, as Irving is one of few elite players who could see his numbers rise once his jumper starts falling. The fact that he's leading this team with 18.4 shots and a usage rate of 29.1 furthers that point, as he'll continue to play a huge role in the absence of Gordon Hayward (ankle).
Jaylen Brown BOS G
Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Drops 27 in win over Atlanta3h ago
Brown tallied 27 points (10-13 FG, 4-6 3PT, 3-7 FT) and four rebounds in a 110-99 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.
Brown is scorching hot right now, as he is averaging over 20 points across his last four games. What's going to keep him an elite fantasy option going forward are his minutes, as he is averaging over 32 minutes per game. If there's one aspect that he could see an improvement in, it's his assists. Brown is averaging just 1.3 assists per game for the year, but his 21.3 usage rate and minutes should allow him to get above two the more he develops. The sky is the limit for this 21-year-old, as he's turning into one of the waiver wire pickups of the year.
John Collins ATL F
Hawks' John Collins: Scores 18 in loss to Boston3h ago
Collins amassed 18 points (7-8 FG, 4-4 FT) and seven rebounds in a 110-99 loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday.
Collins continues to be one of the best rookies in the league, as this is his 10th game with at least 12 points. What might be more impressive is the fact that he's doing this damage in limited minutes, as he's playing just 20.1 minutes per game. That's a number that will surely rise as the season progresses, especially considering the Hawks are looking more like a rebuild rather than a contender.The per-48 minutes speak for themselves too, as he is averaging 24.2 points, 16.6 rebounds and 2,3 blocks per-48 minutes played.
Dennis Schroder ATL G
Hawks' Dennis Schroder: Provides 23 points and nine assists against Boston3h ago
Schroder collected 23 points (9-18 FG, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, nine assists and two steals in a 110-99 loss to the Boston Celtics on Saturday.
Schroder has been in a minor slump over the last two weeks, as this breakout is a fantastic sign against an elite Boston defense. Many fantasy owners were worried about their field goal percentage when they drafted Schroder, but the fact that he's shooting at a 45 percent clip has to make owners ecstatic. If he can continue to provide his 19.9 points, 6.8 assists and 1,2 steals per game averages with that sort of percentage, Schroder will surely reach top-40 value.
Clint Capela HOU C
Rockets' Clint Capela: Double-doubles in win over Memphis3h ago
Capela totaled 17 points (7-11 FG), 13 rebounds and three blocks in a 104-82 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.
This marks Capela's 11th double-double of the season, as he continues to provide fantasy owners with what they wanted when they drafted him. What's quietly been a nice surprise is his free-throw shooting, as Capela is setting a career-high with a 64 percent free-throw percentage. He's also providing nearly two blocks a game, as his value should only rise with Chris Paul back in the lineup.
Matt Murray PIT G
Penguins' Matt Murray: Strong performance goes unrewarded Saturday2h ago
Murray stopped 36 of 38 shots in Saturday's loss to Chicago.
It was a goaltending duel in Pittsburgh on Saturday night and opposing netminder Corey Crawford was just that much better. While Murray likely deserved a victory for his outstanding individual performance, the Penguins had scored 12 goals in their last three games and simply ran into a hot netminder Saturday. Murray is now 11-5-1 on the season with a .909 save save percentage. The 23-year-old has been excellent in his last two appearances and should continue seeing a very heavy workload for a Penguins team that is playing some of their best hockey of the season.
Corey Crawford CHI G
Blackhawks' Corey Crawford: Stymies Penguins with 35 saves3h ago
Crawford stopped 35 of 36 shots in Saturday's win over the Penguins.
Crawford really needed a bounce-back effort after a few recent rough outings and he delivered. The only goal that got past him Saturday was a shorthanded marker from Matt Hunwick in the third period. While it was a weak backhand shot that squeaked through, Crawford was able to shut the door the rest of the way and pick up his second consecutive victory. His ability to rebound after lackluster showings is what makes him such a reliable fantasy goaltender. Crawford is sporting a .933 save percentage this season and should be in your lineup whenever he gets the nod.
Ivan Provorov PHI D
Flyers' Ivan Provorov: Tallies third goal4h ago
Provorov scored and added three shots on net in a 5-4 overtime defeat against the Flames on Saturday.
That's already Provorov's third goal of the season, giving him half the total he reached in 82 games in 2016-17. Provorov is receiving nearly 3:00 additional minutes in playing time per game this season than his rookie year, which is clearly helping his fantasy value. He's on pace to surpass his totals in goals, points and shots from last season.
Jakub Voracek PHI RW
Flyers' Jakub Voracek: Posts two assists in overtime defeat4h ago
Voracek picked up two assists and recorded five shots on goal in a 5-4 overtime loss against the Flames on Saturday.
After a mini-cold streak, Voracek has heated up again, posting nine points in six games, including two points in the last two. He's also registered five shots on goal three times during that stretch. Voracek has 10 multi-point games already this season, which has helped place him among the leaders in points.
Kris Versteeg CGY RW
Flames' Kris Versteeg: Delivers two man-advantage helpers4h ago
Versteeg registered two power-play assists in Saturday's 5-4 overtime road win over the Flyers.
The veteran winger was instrumental in helping Sean Monahan record his first career hat trick, and now five of Versteeg's eight points this season have taken place with the man advantage. He's past his prime, but performances like this remind us there's still some gas in the tank.
T.J. Brodie CGY D
Flames' T.J. Brodie: Collects two helpers4h ago
Brodie set up two goals -- including one on the man advantage -- in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Flyers.
This was the third time this season that Brodie's recorded a multiplier in the points column, but he's been maddeningly inconsistent in the offensive zone on the way to 14 points (two goals, 12 assists). On a positive note, his 29 blocked shots through 19 games should at least partially compensate for the occasions where he's been held off the scoresheet, and 14 points is nothing to sniff at for a blueliner.
