Saints' Vonn Bell: Stuffs the stat sheet23m ago
Bell had seven tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in Monday night's win against the Panthers.
Bell played 55 of the Saints' 58 defensive snaps, as the third-year strong safety has clearly leapfrogged Kurt Coleman (11 snaps) on the depth chart. Despite not starting most of the year, Bell still ranks second on the team in tackles (72) and should continue to be a dependable option for IDP owners.
Keith Kirkwood NO WR
Saints' Keith Kirkwood: Career-high snaps31m ago
Kirkwood had two receptions for 40 yards in Monday night's win against the Panthers.
A week after playing his fewest snaps since being first activated in Week 10, Kirwood tied a career-high with 34 snaps in a chippy Monday night affair in Carolina. Still, the rookie receiver saw just two targets and has yet to top 45 yards in a game. Kirkwood is an interesting player in dynasty leagues, but he probably does not need to be owned in most fantasy leagues.
Cory Littleton LAR ILB
Rams' Cory Littleton: Totals 10 tackles in loss8h ago
Littleton had 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Eagles.
Littleton reached double-digit tackles for the first time since Week 7, though he continues to lead the team with 112 tackles (80 solo). The 25-year-old also has four sacks and an interception in his first season as a full-time starter.
John Johnson LAR SS
Rams' John Johnson: Reaches double-digit tackles8h ago
Johnson had 14 tackles (11 solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Eagles.
Johnson has come into his own this season and is second on the team with 106 tackles (74 solo) through 14 games. The 22-year-old has four interceptions and a forced fumble as he's turned into an every down player in his sophomore season.
Demario Davis NO OLB
Saints' Demario Davis: Adds to sack total9h ago
Davis had eight tackles (four solo) and a sack in Monday's 12-9 win over the Panthers.
Davis also added two pass breakups as the Saints were able to stifle the Panthers offense throughout the evening. The 29-year-old leads the team with 103 tackles (70 solo), and also has four sacks and two forced fumbles through 14 games.
Malcolm Jenkins PHI SS
Eagles' Malcolm Jenkins: Adds 11 more tackles9h ago
Jenkins had 12 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 30-23 win over the Rams.
Jenkins had two tackles for loss as the Eagles were able to forced three turnovers by the Rams offense. The 30-year-old has now reached double-digit tackles in back-to-back weeks to bring his season tackle total to 88.
Matt Harvey CIN SP
Angels' Matt Harvey: Signs with Angels13h 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 Sox15h 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-man18h 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 Cubs22h 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 ball22h 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 training22h 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.
Juancho Hernangomez DEN PF
Nuggets' Juancho Hernangomez: Solid supplemental production5m ago
Hernangomez (abdomen) tallied 12 points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds and one block across 30 minutes in the Nuggets' 126-118 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Hernangomez shook off the abdominal strain he entered the game with to essentially play close to a full complement of minutes, despite reports earlier in the day that he'd potentially be on a playing time restriction. The 23-year-old was able to bounce back nicely on the offensive end after posting only two points on 0-for-5 shooting Sunday against the Raptors. He continues to put together serviceable production while starting at small forward in place of Will Barton (abdomen), and he's now averaging a solid 12.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists across eight December games.
Trey Lyles DEN PF
Nuggets' Trey Lyles: Co-leads second unit in scoring10m ago
Lyles contributed 16 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and three rebounds across 21 minutes in the Nuggets' 126-118 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Lyles drew even with Monte Morris for the second-unit lead in scoring, with his sharp work from distance helping produce his first double-digit scoring effort since Dec. 5. Lyles was initially thought to be the leading candidate to fill in for Paul Millsap (toe) during the latter's absence, but coach Mike Malone opted to keep Lyles on the bench and move Mason Plumlee into the first unit at power forward after experimenting with the former as a starter for one game.
Monte Morris DEN PG
Nuggets' Monte Morris: Continues thriving in win14m ago
Morris turned in 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), five assists, four rebounds and two steals across 25 minutes in the Nuggets' 126-118 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Morris co-led the Nuggets' second unit scoring while providing further tangible evidence of his rapidly accelerating development. The performance served as Morris' seventh straight double-digit point tally, one in which he extended a torrid stretch from three-point range. Morris has now drained multiple buckets from distance in six straight, and he boasts a 50 percent success rate from behind the arc in eight December contests. With his stellar play off the bench seemingly having locked his minutes into the mid 20s at minimum on the majority of nights, Morris qualifies as one of the most prudent waiver wire grabs in leagues where he's still available.
DeAndre Jordan DAL C
Mavericks' DeAndre Jordan: Double-doubles in tough matchup24m ago
Jordan furnished 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-6 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and two steals across 27 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Jordan still managed one of his trademark lines despite a tough positional matchup against Nikola Jokic, leading to his third double-double in the last four games. The 30-year-old hasn't really seen much of a downgrade statistically in the move from Los Angeles to Dallas, save for a slight drop in offensive usage. Jordan is taking almost one less shot attempt this season as compared to last (6.6, as compared to 7.5), which has led a one-point-per-game drop in scoring average from 12.0 to 11.0. However, he's still pulling down an impressive 13.8 boards per contest, and he's facilitating better than in any other prior season -- his 2.1 assists serve as a career high.
Luka Doncic DAL SF
Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Double-doubles in high-scoring loss29m ago
Doncic registered 23 points (5-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 10-12 FT), 12 assists, six rebounds and one steal across 35 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Doncic's final line spoke to a level of maturity beyond his 19 years of age, as he wasn't dissuaded from remaining aggressive and mentally involved despite a ragged shooting night. That much was evident by the career-high figure in dimes that he generated, as well as by his double-digit number of visits to the free-throw line. The latter significantly helped prop up his final point total in a game when he shot under 40 percent for the fourth time in the last eight games. He'll look to regain better form from the field against the Clippers on Thursday night.
Jamal Murray DEN PG
Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Elite as facilitator in win34m ago
Murray provided 22 points (10-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 15 assists, seven rebounds, one steal and one block across 39 minutes in the Nuggets' 126-118 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday.
Murray put together a career-best assist total in the high-scoring win, setting his teammates up for buckets throughout the night while also shooting better than 50 percent for the third time in the last four games. Murray's spike in dimes was somewhat unexpected, considering he'd dished out just 13 total in the prior four games combined. The third-year guard is enjoying a solid December overall, with Tuesday's production pushing his monthly averages to 19.0 points, 6.4 assists and 5.4 rebounds across eight games.
Jordan Greenway MIN LW
Wild's Jordan Greenway: Invisible in home loss4m ago
Greenway recorded one shot on goal in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to San Jose.
Greenway has had a rough December with just two goals in eight games. He logged a season-high 16:01 of ice time Tuesday which was a silver lining in an otherwise disappointing result. If Greenway's owners could have one thing this holiday season, it would be more opportunities with the man advantage. The talented winger is averaging just 17 seconds of power-play time per game in 2018-19.
Kevin Fiala NSH LW
Predators' Kevin Fiala: Pots lone goal in loss to Hawks5m ago
Fiala scored the Predators' only goal in a 2-1 road loss to the Blackhawks on Tuesday.
Fiala had a breakthrough season last year, coming within two points of the 50-point plateau with 23 goals and 25 assists. This season, however, he has regressed badly with just 17 points through 35 games, putting him on pace to finish somewhere in the 35-40 point range. Fiala is currently seeing time on the Preds' top line, but only because Viktor Arvidsson, the team's regular No. 1 right winger, remains out with a hand injury and is not expected back until early January. For fantasy purposes, Fiala makes for a good spot start as long as he's seeing top-six minutes, but be prepared to drop him once Arvidsson is back in the lineup.
Tomas Hertl SJ LW
Sharks' Tomas Hertl: Posts two-assist night in win28m ago
Hertl finished Tuesday's 4-0 win over Minnesota with a pair of helpers.
Tuesday's game was Hertl's fourth multi-point performance in his last five contests. For the season, he has 10 goals and 27 points. Half of Hertl's goals this season have been scored with the man advantage, and while he failed to add to his PP goal total in this one, Hertl finished the game with 1:38 of PP time. If he continues producing at this pace, the 25-year-old Czech will easily eclipse his previous career high of 46 points.
Lukas Radil SJ C
Sharks' Lukas Radil: Picks up pair of points37m ago
Radil scored a goal and assisted on another in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Wild.
Tuesday's performance was the 28-year-old's first multi-point game of the season, and Radil now has five points in 10 NHL games. Prior to joining the Sharks, he played three seasons in the KHL, and before that was a member of Pardubice HC of the Czech league for seven seasons. He remains a risky play most nights in fantasy, but Radil's recent hot streak makes him an intriguing waiver wire option if you're looking to add depth to your lineup. He is not a worthy option in daily formats.
Logan Couture SJ C
Sharks' Logan Couture: Nets pair in road win1h ago
Couture scored two goals in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Wild.
After a scoreless first period, Couture broke the ice with his 12th goal of the season midway through the middle frame before adding another marker 51 seconds into the third period. While not the case in this game, a big reason for Couture's point-per-game pace (36 points in 35 games) has been his assist production. He sits second on the team with 23 helpers (Brent Burns leads the Sharks with 30).
Victor Mete MON D
Canadiens' Victor Mete: Practices with Petry1h ago
Mete was on the second defensive pair with Jeff Petry at Tuesday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Mete was called up from AHL Laval on Monday, replacing Noah Juulsen who was sent down, and we expect him to be in the active lineup Wednesday night in Colorado. Coach Claude Julien hasn't decided yet on the configuration of his roster, but the defensive alignment at practice suggests Mete is in for a bump in ice time. The 20-year-old blueliner was given just 12:21 of ice time in his final game before being sent down. Mete played about 25 minutes per game and in all situations for the Rocket, and he's ready to apply at the NHL level what he learned in the AHL. "A lot of the practices there were a lot of battling drills and that's kind of what they wanted me to work on was battles in tight and D zone. That's pretty much I would say 90 per cent of the practices is one-on-one battles down there. I thought it helped me out a lot and I can just add it to my game now," said Mete.
