  • Jake Elliott PHI K
    Eagles' Jake Elliott: No field goals in loss
    4h ago

    Elliott did not attempt a field goal in Sunday's 33-22 loss to the Raiders. He was perfect on his two extra-point tries.

    Elliott has one or zero field-goal attempts in three of his last five games. He has a nice matchup on tap in Week 8 against the Lions, however.

  • Quez Watkins PHI WR
    Eagles' Quez Watkins: Two grabs in loss
    4h ago

    Watkins caught two of his four targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 33-22 loss to Las Vegas.

    Watkins didn't see a target until midway through the third quarter with the Eagles trailing by 23. He kept his streak of at least two catches in every game this season intact. Unfortunately, the 23-year-old has only topped 50 yards once this year, and that was back in Week 2.

    Eagles' Jalen Reagor: Hauls in touchdown in loss
    4h ago

    Reagor caught both of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-22 loss to Las Vegas. He also had one rushing attempt for no gain.

    Reagor saw his lowest target total over the last three weeks, and none of them came until garbage time. Fortunately, one of his chances came in the red zone, and he converted it into a score. The TCU product is still an afterthought in an average offense, however.

    Raiders' Daniel Carlson: Misses second XP of season
    5h ago

    Carlson made both of his field-goal attempts and converted three of four extra-point tries in Sunday's 33-22 win over the Eagles.

    Carlson failed to convert just four total extra-point attempts throughout his first 44 games as a Raider, but he's now missed a pair over his past five contests. Nonetheless, he's accounted for 58 total points through the first seven weeks of the regular season.

    Raiders' Zay Jones: Secures difficult catch in win
    6h ago

    Jones caught his only target for 43 yards in Sunday's 33-22 win over the Eagles.

    Jones made an impressive 43-yard sideline grab on third and long when the Raiders were trailing by seven points in the first quarter, but he ultimately played less than 15 offensive snaps for a fourth consecutive game. Jones is averaging just one target per game ahead of the team's Week 8 bye.

  • Freddie Swain SEA WR
    Seahawks' Freddie Swain: Five touches in loss
    6h ago

    Swain had four receptions (six targets) for 39 yards and one carry for eight yards in Monday's 13-10 loss to New Orleans.

    Swain turned in a solid all-around effort after struggling mightily over his last two contests. DK Metcalf (two receptions on five targets) drew the tough matchup against shutdown corner Marshon Lattimore, which likely resulted in the season-high six targets for Swain. The 22-year-old doesn't provide enough upside to warrant fantasy consideration against the Jaguars next week.

    Austin Wynns: Bound for free agency
    13h ago

    Wynns cleared waivers and elected free agency Monday, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

    Wynns hit just .185/.232/.308 in 45 games this season. As a 30-year-old with a career 55 wRC+ in 115 games at the major-league level, he'll presumably be looking for a minor-league deal this winter.

    Konner Wade: Becomes free agent
    13h ago

    Wade elected free agency Monday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Wade will elect to part ways with the Orioles' organization after he was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. The right-hander posted an 11.68 ERA and 2.27 WHIP in 12.1 major-league innings in 2021.

    Pat Valaika: Heads to open market
    13h ago

    Valaika cleared waivers Monday and elected free agency, Steve Melewski of MASNSports.com reports.

    Valaika hit a surprising .277/.315/.475 in the shortened 2020 season, but he didn't come anywhere near that this year. His .201/.250/.290 line in 91 games was even worse than the .214/.256/.400 line he posted in his first four years in the league. He's unlikely to generate much interest in anything more than a minor-league deal on the open market.

    Thomas Eshelman: Elects free agency
    13h ago

    Eshelman elected free agency Monday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    Eshelman was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday, but he'll choose to become a free agent ahead of the 2022 campaign. The right-hander made 31 appearances (14 starts) across four seasons with the Orioles and posted a 5.77 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 98.1 innings.

    Cardinals' Justin Miller: Designated for assignment
    14h ago

    Miller (elbow) was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Monday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Miller sustained a right elbow strain late in the 2021 season and was unable to return for the NL Wild Card Game. The right-hander will now lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Jordan Hicks (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday. Miller made 23 appearances with the Nationals and Cardinals in 2021 and posted a 6.16 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 19 innings.

    Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Arm injury won't require surgery
    14h ago

    Dever's arm issue that he dealt with throughout the postseason was merely elbow inflammation and will not require surgery, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    While Devers was playing hurt throughout the postseason, you certainly couldn't tell from his numbers, as he hit .295 with five homers and a 1.029 OPS in 11 games. He appears set for a normal offseason and should be unaffected by spring training.

  • Patrick Beverley MIN PG
    Timberwolves' Patrick Beverley: Scores 13 points Monday
    14m ago

    Beverley finished with 13 points (4-6 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 20 minutes during Monday's 107-98 loss to New Orleans.

    Beverley was one of only three Timberwolves players to score in double digits, highlighting their offensive struggles. He is playing primarily as a backup guard option and while he is not as versatile as he used to be, he can still have some value in deeper formats for his ability to put up numbers across the board.

  • D'Angelo Russell MIN PG
    Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Shooting woes continue Monday
    19m ago

    Russell managed just nine points (3-14 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes during Monday's 107-98 loss to the Pelicans.

    It's been a rough start to the season for Russell who has thus far looked like a shell of his former self. This should be viewed as a possible buy-low moment for anyone keen on acquiring his services. While he is almost certainly going to turn things around at some point, there is a chance his offensive prowess is just not what it once was.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns MIN C
    Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Stellar performance in loss
    24m ago

    Towns tallied 32 points (10-24 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 14 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 40 minutes during Monday's 107-98 loss to the Pelicans.

    Towns put up another strong performance despite the Timberwolves falling to their first loss of the season. He has looked incredible to begin the season and for those who invested a top-5 pick on him, things are certainly looking good. The fear of missed games is something that is likely to linger for the majority of the season, be it due to injury or simply because the team falls out of playoff contention.

  • Trey Murphy III NO F
    Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Another poor showing Monday
    28m ago

    Murphy closed with just six points (2-4 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes during Monday's 107-98 victory over Minnesota.

    Despite playing consistent minutes off the bench, Murphy has been unable to make the most of his opportunity. Coming off an impressive preseason, the hope was that he could be a legitimate scoring threat on a team crying out for points production. For now, he can be safely left on the wire in standard leagues; however, fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on his production moving forward.

  • Brandon Ingram NO SF
    Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Clutch shooting in Monday's win
    33m ago

    Ingram totaled 27 points (11-21 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes during Monday's 107-98 victory over the Timberwolves.

    Ingram delivered for the Pelicans as they edged out the Timberwolves, recording their first win of the season. Despite a lack of defensive stats, Ingram still managed to walk away with an impressive fantasy line, including a number of key baskets down the stretch. While the outlook for the Pelicans is far from immaculate, Ingram looks set for another elite fantasy season.

  • Jonas Valanciunas NO C
    Pelicans' Jonas Valanciunas: Monster double-double in win
    41m ago

    Valanciunas finished with 22 points (7-18 FG, 8-8 FT), 23 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 39 minutes during Monday's 107-98 victory over the Timberwolves.

    The Pelicans managed to win their first game of the season on the back of a huge performance by Valanciunas. Despite an indifferent start to the season from a team perspective, Valanciunas has been able to continue on from where he ended last season. He is typically able to deliver a double-double on most nights and is one of the more efficient centers in the league.

    Stars' Joel Hanley: Back to press box
    6h ago

    Hanley was a healthy scratch Monday versus the Blue Jackets.

    Hanley played in the last four games with John Klingberg sidelined by a lower-body injury. With the Stars' defense corps now full healthy, Hanley is set to serve as a spare blueliner until another injury arises. He could also occasionally enter the lineup to give Andrej Sekera a night off. The 30-year-old Hanley has logged two shots on net, four hits, five blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in his four appearances so far.

  • Esa Lindell DAL D
    Stars' Esa Lindell: Nabs helper
    6h ago

    Lindell recorded an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Lindell has mostly been kept quiet in 2021-22, as his assist Monday was his first point in six contests. That's partly due to the Stars' meager scoring output -- the team has averaged two goals per game so far. Lindell has still been a solid source in non-scoring production with 17 shots on net, 17 hits and 10 blocked shots while adding a plus-1 rating. The Finn typically is on the fringe of usefulness in standard fantasy formats given his decent but not outstanding all-around production.
