Tavon Wilson DET SS
Lions' Tavon Wilson: Injures shoulder Thursday1h ago
Wilson suffered a shoulder injury against the Vikings on Thursday, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.
Wilson was able to record three tackles (two solo) and one pass breakup before leaving the game. He's picked up his performance lately and suddenly became fantasy relevant after a slow start. The 27-year-old will have 10 days to recover before a Week 13 matchup with the Ravens, but if he can't go, expect Miles Killebrew to take over at strong safety.
Keenan Allen LAC WR
Chargers' Keenan Allen: Posts career-high in receiving yards1h ago
Allen caught 11 of his 14 targets for a career-high 172 receiving yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 28-6 win over the Cowboys.
Allen was absolutely electric Thursday, knifing in and around an over-matched Cowboys secondary. Finally healthy after multiple season-ending injuries the last three seasons, Allen's work after the catch has simply been remarkable, using subtle cuts to dance in and around oncoming defenders. The end result has been a whopping 23 catches, 331 receiving yards and three touchdowns over the last two weeks, with the majority of the yardage coming after the catch. It's unlikely Allen will top his yardage totals for a third straight week, but he should nevertheless be primed for another solid matchup against the Browns next Sunday.
Philip Rivers LAC QB
Chargers' Philip Rivers: Throws for 434 yards in win1h ago
Rivers completed 27 of 33 attempts for 434 yards and three touchdowns in the 28-6 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.
Rivers put on a Thanksgiving Day clinic against a beleaguered Cowboys secondary, slicing his opposition apart with a whopping seven completions that traveled 25 or more yards. Thursday's performance also represented a season-high in passing yards for the veteran quarterback, as Rivers previous high-water mark came in Week 4 against another NFC East foe, the Eagles. For a second straight week, Rivers tormented his opposition with a study dose of throws to Keenan Allen, who posted a career-high 172 receiving yards on Thursday. The 35-year-old should be primed for another fantasy gem when the Chargers take on the Browns next Sunday.
Brandon Scherff WAS G
Redskins' Brandon Scherff: Active Thursday1h ago
Scherff (knee) is set to suit up for the Redskins' Thanksgiving contest against Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Scherff has been a regular on the injury report, but has managed to play in the previous two contests. Barring any setbacks, the 25-year-old should see his usual workload on the line.
Ty Nsekhe WAS T
Redskins' Ty Nsekhe: Set to suit up Thursday1h ago
Nsekhe (abdomen) is listed as active for the Redskins' Thanksgiving game against the Giants, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Although he was limited at practice throughout the short week, Nsekhe will give it a go Thursday. He will presumably continue to provide depth on the offensive line.
Scott McGough BAL RP
Rockies' Scott McGough: Inks deal with Rockies3h ago
McGough signed a minor league contract with the Rockies on Thursday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
The right-hander spent the 2017 season between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk in the Orioles organization, notching a 2.75 ERA over 55.2 innings. McGough will now head to Colorado to add some organizational depth, but he projects to at least start the year in the minors.
Jaycob Brugman BAL LF
Orioles' Jaycob Brugman: Traded to Baltimore1d ago
Brugman was dealt to the Orioles on Wednesday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Brugman was recently designated for assignment by Oakland on Monday, and will now head to the East Coast after playing in 48 games with the A's last season. During that time, he slashed .266/.346/.343 with three home runs and 12 RBI. He will serve as outfield depth for Baltimore moving forward, and could latch onto the big-league roster as a fourth or fifth outfielder in 2018.
Colten Brewer SD SP
Padres' Colten Brewer: Signs with Padres1d ago
Brewer signed a one-year, major-league deal with San Diego on Wednesday.
Brewer spent the 2017 season in the Yankees' farm system, posting a 1.31 ERA in 41.1 innings at Double-A Trenton. He will likely be utilized out of the bullpen with the Padres. In a corresponding move, the club designated Kyle Lloyd for assignment.
Juan Centeno HOU C
Astros' Juan Centeno: Outrighted from 40-man roster1d ago
Centeno was outrighted from the Astros' 40-man roster Wednesday, John Boyd of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Centeno will head to waivers following a 2017 season which saw the catcher play in 22 games with the World Series-champion Astros. During those contests, he slashed .231/.286/.346 with two home runs and four RBI.
Leonel Campos CLE SP
Indians' Leonel Campos: Agrees to minor-league deal with Cleveland1d ago
Campos agreed to a reached a minor-league contract with the Indians on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Campos only appeared in 13 games with Toronto last season, but he fared reasonably well, allowing just four earned runs on 11 hits while striking out 15 in 13.2 innings out of the bullpen. He spent a majority of the 2017 campaign with Triple-A Buffalo, and will likely serve as organizational depth in a similar capacity for Cleveland this season.
Jeff Beliveau CLE RP
Indians' Jeff Beliveau: Signs with Cleveland1d ago
Beliveau signed a minor-league deal with the Indians on Wednesday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Beliveau appeared in 19 games with the Blue Jays in 2017, posting a 7.47 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 15.2 relief innings. He fared much better during his time with Triple-A Buffalo, and will likely begin his tenure with Cleveland at the club's Triple-A affiliate to start the 2018 campaign.
Trevor Booker BKN F
Nets' Trevor Booker: Probable to play vs. Blazers2h ago
Booker (ankle) is considered probable for Friday's game against the Blazers.
Booker was held out of Wednesday's game against Cleveland with a sprained ankle, but at this point it looks as though he'll only miss one contest. Prior to the injury, the 29-year-old had strung together three straight double-digit scoring efforts, while averaging 6.0 rebounds per game during that span.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope LAL G
Lakers' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Leads team with 20 points in loss5h ago
Caldwell-Pope recorded 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, a rebound and a steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 113-102 loss to the Kings.
Caldwell-Pope followed up a season-high 21 points against the Bulls with another great outing despite the disappointing loss. His minutes have remained consistent through the first 16 games, but his output can be a bit under-the-radar due to players like Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram taking up the spotlight in Los Angeles. While he is widely owned in seasonal leagues, he is an intriguing GPP option and can also be utilized as a cheap option in cash games, depending on the matchup.
Dragan Bender PHO F
Suns' Dragan Bender: Productive off bench in loss5h ago
Bender totaled 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Bucks.
The second-year forward has started to come on, posting all three of his double-digit scoring efforts this season over the past five contests. Bender's minutes total was easily a season high, while his rebound haul was his best since Oct. 28 against the Trail Blazers. The 20-year-old has been a solid source of rebounds all season, but it remains if his recent scoring uptick will endure.
Tyler Ulis PHO G
Suns' Tyler Ulis: Contributes 12 points in loss5h ago
Ulis contributed 12 points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Bucks.
The second-year point guard generated his second-double-digit scoring total in the last three games, an encouraging development considering he'd failed to hit the mark in eight of the nine games prior to the current stretch. Ulis' shot attempts are typically in the single digits, keeping his offensive contributions decidedly capped on most nights. However, he continues to retain a hold of the starting point guard job for the time being and has been offering solid rebounding, assist and steal totals for his fantasy owners.
T.J. Warren PHO F
Suns' T.J. Warren: Double-doubles in overtime loss5h ago
Warren supplied 20 points (7-20 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and three steals across 43 minutes in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Bucks.
Warren wasn't at his sharpest from the field, but he remained aggressive enough to hit the 20-point mark for the second straight game and fifth time in the last seven contests. The 24-year-old has been notably more involved in his fourth season, averaging a career-high 15.6 shot attempts, 6.2 rebounds and 18.7 points over his first 19 contests.
Greg Monroe PHO C
Suns' Greg Monroe: Double-doubles against former teammates5h ago
Monroe produced 22 points (8-15 FG, 6-6 FT), 15 rebounds and one assist across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 113-107 overtime loss to the Bucks.
Monroe saw plenty of playing time against one of his former squads, which led to his best scoring and rebound totals in his four games in a Suns uniform. The 27-year-old big man can offer plenty off the bench, although the Suns will have to sort out minutes between him and Alex Len behind Tyson Chandler for the time being. If he's afforded sufficient playing time, Monroe is a threat for a double-double on any given night.
Torrey Mitchell MON C
Kings' Torrey Mitchell: Traded to Kings3h ago
Mitchell was traded to the Kings on Thursday, NHL.com reports.
In exchange for the 32-year-old, the Canadiens will get a 2018 fifth-round conditional pick from the Kings. On the season, Mitchell has appeared in 11 games for Montreal, logging a career-low average of 9:18 ice time per game while failing to score a point.
Erik Gudbranson VAN D
Canucks' Erik Gudbranson: Doubtful for Friday6h ago
Gudbranson (upper body) is considered doubtful for Friday's game against the Devils, Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Gudbranson suffered the injury in Wednesday's game against the Penguins and was unable to return, leaving the Canucks with just five healthy defensemen. With Gudbrandon set to miss Friday's contest, the team could potentially be light on depth in the back heading into the weekend.
Scott Wilson DET C
Red Wings' Scott Wilson: On ice practicing Thursday7h ago
Wilson (lower body) participated in Thursday's practice, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
This is encouraging news for the wing after he was forced out of Wednesday's loss to the Oilers with the lower body injury. Barring any setbacks prior to the drop of the puck, it looks like Wilson should be good to go for Friday's matchup with the Rangers.
Travis Konecny PHI C
Flyers' Travis Konecny: Scoreless through past 127h ago
Konecny failed to score a goal for the 12th consecutive game during Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Talent isn't in question with Konecny, and he posted a respectable 11 goals and 28 points as a rookie last season. However, skating on the third line and averaging 1:54 of power-play time per game isn't an ideal fantasy setup. With his upside currently capped, there aren't many seasonal leagues where the sophomore can provide serviceable numbers. His long-term outlook remains encouraging for deep keeper/dynasty settings, though.
Taylor Leier PHI LW
Flyers' Taylor Leier: Scores in overtime loss7h ago
Leier scored a goal through just 7:34 of ice time during Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.
Not only did the tally snap a 10-game point drought, it was also the first of the season for the 23-year-old winger. Leier is averaging just 11:20 of ice time per game this season, and he's currently skating on the fourth line and not receiving power-play time. With the single goal and just two helpers through 20 games for the campaign, Leier is not a viable option in the majority of fantasy setups.
Robert Hagg PHI D
Flyers' Robert Hagg: Rarely marking scoresheet7h ago
Hagg has just two assists and 31 shots through 22 games this season.
The 22-year-old defenseman plays a safe and simple game, which has enabled him to climb the depth chart and pair with Ivan Provorov on the top pairing. However, it hasn't translated into significant fantasy value. Additionally, while Hagg owns a solid plus-10 rating, he's also sporting a discouraging 45.2 Corsi For percentage. It's difficult to consider the rookie a viable fantasy asset until he shows more signs of offensive potential.
