Khalil Shakir BUF WR
Bills' Khalil Shakir: Clear-cut No. 3 wideout45m ago
Shakir caught three balls on five targets for 47 yards during Sunday's 37-34 overtime loss to the Eagles.
Shakir comes with some risk on a week-to-week basis because the Bills offer so many other weapons in the passing game, but he's now had 45-plus yards in four of his last five games while never falling below 66 percent of the offensive snaps. As teams continue to shade attention toward studs Stefon Diggs and Dalton Kincaid, there will be open seams available to secondary options like Shakir and No. 2 wideout Gabe Davis, who posted a 6-105-1 line in Sunday's loss. Shakir is far ahead of any of the receivers underneath his No. 3 spot in the WR corps, as Deonte Harty carries a 13-113-1 line and Trent Sherfield comes in at 7-53-0. Shakir, meanwhile, sits at 25-410-2, proving useful for those in deeper leagues.
Ty Johnson BUF RB
Bills' Ty Johnson: Continued usage with new OC1h ago
Johnson carried six times for 19 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 37-34 overtime loss to the Eagles.
Johnson did catch three balls -- one for a touchdown -- in Week 11, so it's not like the team views him as a one-trick pony. He's still behind James Cook and Latavious Murray in the pecking order, plus Damien Harris (neck) could eventually return before season's end, but it's at least worth noting that Johnson has been given an opportunity in the offense after previously not seeing more than one offensive snap in any game under former offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey, who was fired after Week 10. With interim OC Joe Brady now in charge, Johnson has seen 24 offensive snaps over the past two weeks. While Johnson still is too far down the pecking order to consider using, he's also probably just an injury or two away from having a meaningful role in an offense that can put up a high number of points.
Greg Dortch ARI WR
Cardinals' Greg Dortch: Scores first TD of season2h ago
Dortch hauled in three of nine targets for 27 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 37-14 defeat to the Rams.
With Michael Wilson (shoulder) out the last two games, Dortch has been the Cardinals wide receiver to profit alongside Marquise Brown, compiling a combined 9-103-1 line on 17 targets. Dortch also received a red-zone target from Kyler Murray for a second straight contest en route to his first TD, a seven-yard catch, of the campaign. There's no telling when Wilson may return to the lineup, so Dortch could be a decent fantasy dart in the short term, while fellow wide receiver Rondale Moore continues to be relegated to his 4.3 touches per game.
Rondale Moore ARI WR
Cardinals' Rondale Moore: Another lacking performance2h ago
Moore recorded two catches (on three targets) for 35 yards during Sunday's 37-14 loss to the Rams.
With Michael Wilson (shoulder) sidelined for a second consecutive game, Moore had no problem racking up offensive snaps (53 of 71), which fell behind Marquise Brown (62) and Greg Dortch (54) and well ahead of Andre Baccelllia (eight) and Zach Pascal (seven). But Moore again fell shy of 40 yards from scrimmage for the eighth time in 12 appearances this season, leaving him with averages of 4.3 touches for 34.2 total yards per game and two total TDs overall. Whenever Wilson returns to the lineup, Moore may be on the outside looking in to holding much sway in the Cardinals offense.
Michael Carter ARI RB
Cardinals' Michael Carter: Notches four touches in team debut2h ago
Carter recorded four carries for 19 yards and reeled in all four targets for 15 yards during Sunday's 37-14 defeat to the Rams.
In his Cardinals debut, Carter took on a surprising snap share (38 percent) behind starting running back James Conner (42 percent) while ranking ahead of the returning Emari Demercado (20 percent). Carter actually outproduced Conner in total yards, 34-32, on two fewer touches, and Demercado was a distant third in the category with three touches (all carries) for 15 yards. Arizona may have been easing Demercado back in after he missed the previous three contests due to a toe injury, but the breakdown of reps between the three bears watching to see if Carter may be the preferred No. 2 RB option ahead of Demercado, starting Sunday in Pittsburgh.
Emari Demercado ARI RB
Cardinals' Emari Demercado: Sparse usage in return3h ago
Demercado tallied three carries for 15 yards during Sunday's 37-14 loss to the Rams.
The Cardinals' No. 1 running back James Conner had among his quietest games of the season in this one, turning a 42 percent (30 of 71) offensive snap share into 10 touches for 32 yards from scrimmage. Meanwhile, Michael Carter ranked second among the team's RBs with eight touches for 34 total yards on 38 percent (27) of plays, with Demercado bringing up the rear with three touches on 20 percent (14) of snaps. Perhaps Arizona was easing Demercado back into the mix after he missed the previous three games due to a toe injury, but he at the very least remains a very distant second or third at the position among the Cards' backfield options. His next chance for action arrives Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Adam Haseley CHW RF
White Sox's Adam Haseley: Dropped from 40-man roster16h ago
Haseley was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Tuesday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for Paul DeJong, whose one-year, $1.75 million agreement with Chicago has now been made official. Haseley, 27, slashed just .222/.282/.278 over 39 major-league plate appearances in 2023 and also had underwhelming numbers with Triple-A Charlotte.
Easton McGee SEA SP
Brewers' Easton McGee: Latches on with Milwaukee16h ago
McGee (elbow) signed a two-year, minor-league contract with the Brewers on Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
McGee was given an invitation to major-league spring training as part of the deal, but he'll spend it rehabbing after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May. The 25-year-old doesn't figure to be game-ready until around the middle of the 2024 season, but he is locked in with the Brewers through 2025.
Ryan Jensen SEA RP
Marlins' Ryan Jensen: Claimed by Miami2d ago
The Marlins claimed Jensen off waivers from the Mariners on Monday.
Jensen had been designated for assignment by Seattle last week and has now found a new home. The 25-year-old right-hander held a 5.32 ERA and 78:54 K:BB over 64.1 innings between the Double- and Triple-A levels in 2023. He was deployed primarily as a reliever last season, but it's not whether the Marlins intend to continue using him out of the bullpen.
Jason Heyward LAD RF
Dodgers' Jason Heyward: Reaches deal to stay in L.A.2d ago
Heyward agreed Monday with the Dodgers on a one-year, $9 million contract, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.
Heyward and the Dodgers will run it back after he was surprisingly productive in 2023, slashing .269/.340/.473 with 15 home runs and 40 RBI over 377 plate appearances. His .813 OPS this past season was his highest mark since 2012, excluding the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign. The 34-year-old should fill a similar role again in 2024, starting in right field against righties while occasionally filling in as a center fielder. The Dodgers' decision to bring back Heyward also means that Mookie Betts will continue to see more action at second base.
Cole Waites SF RP
Giants' Cole Waites: Brought back by Giants2d ago
The Giants re-signed Waites (elbow) to a minor-league contract Sunday.
Waites was non-tendered by San Francisco earlier this month but is now back in the organization. The 25-year-old had Tommy John surgery in September and will be sidelined until at least spring training in 2025. He'll now get to conduct his rehab in familiar surroundings.
Garrett Hill DET RP
Tigers' Garrett Hill: Re-signs with Tigers2d ago
The Tigers re-signed Hill to a minor-league contract Sunday.
Hill was non-tendered by Detroit earlier this month but will remain in the organization. It's not clear whether he was given an invitation to the major-league side of spring training as part of the deal. Hill was torched for 20 runs (16 earned) over 15.2 major-league innings in 2023.
Gary Payton II GS PG
Warriors' Gary Payton: Won't return against Sacramento2h ago
Payton has been ruled out for the remainder of Tuesday's game versus the Kings due to a right calf injury, Kendra Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
Payton tallied seven points, five rebounds, two steals, one block and one assist in 17 minutes before exiting Tuesday's contest early. With Chris Paul (leg) also out, the Warriors' bench backcourt will be left short-handed. Payton's status for Thursday's matchup with the Clippers is uncertain.
Josh Hart NY SG
Knicks' Josh Hart: Improved performance Tuesday3h ago
Hart ended with 17 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 30 minutes during Tuesday's 115-91 victory over Charlotte.
Hart had one of his better games of the season Tuesday, looking more like the player we expected to see coming into the season. He has scored double-digits only five times, averaging 7.7 points per game to go with 6.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 0.9 steals. While this is a taste of what he can do, managers should not overreact to one performance. Should he be able to string a few good games together, he could be worth grabbing as an out-of-position specialist.
Isaiah Hartenstein NY C
Knicks' Isaiah Hartenstein: Limited in victory Tuesday3h ago
Hartenstein amassed four points (2-3 FG), six rebounds and two assists over 14 minutes during Tuesday's 115-91 victory over Charlotte.
Hartensteing failed to hit 15 minutes for the fourth time in the past five games. Across 17 games to begin the season, he is averaging just 5.7 points and 4.9 rebounds in 17.0 minutes per game. Although he does have a somewhat fantasy-friendly game, he would need an injury to Mitchell Robinson to even sniff 12-team value.
Quentin Grimes NY SG
Knicks' Quentin Grimes: Struggles yet again Tuesday3h ago
Grimes logged six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), one rebound and one assist over 19 minutes during Tuesday's 115-91 victory over the Hornets.
Grimes managed just six points Tuesday, continuing his dreadful start to the season. Despite starting in all 15 games, he is averaging just 6.7 points in 23.7 minutes per game. Currently outside the top 250, managers can safely look the other way when it comes to analyzing his current fantasy value.
Nick Smith Jr. CHA PG
Hornets' Nick Smith: Scores career-high eight points3h ago
Smith supplied eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt) in five minutes during Tuesday's 115-91 loss to the Knicks.
Smith played in just his seventh game of the season Tuesday, scoring a career-high eight points in five minutes. The Hornets recently lost LaMelo Ball to what is being described as a serious ankle sprain. While Smith is still buried on the depth chart, there is a chance the Hornets may opt to see what they have in Smith, especially if their current trajectory holds. He is clearly not someone who needs to be prioritized, but the situation warrants at least some attention.
Ish Smith CHA PG
Hornets' Ish Smith: Invisible off bench3h ago
Smith contributed four points (2-3 FG), one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes during Tuesday's 115-91 loss to the Knicks.
Smith played just 14 minutes in the loss, a little underwhelming given the recent injury to LaMelo Ball (ankle). Ball is likely to miss multiple weeks, meaning there are going to be more minutes available to both Smith and Bryce McGowens. While this was a poor performance, Smith might be able to have limited value as an assists streamer, at least for the next few weeks.
Jared McCann SEA C
Kraken's Jared McCann: Nabs assist in loss42m ago
McCann notched an assist, two shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks.
McCann stole the puck at his own blue line, rushed into the zone, and then dropped a bank pass off the boards for Matty Beniers, who scored on his own rebound. The helper was McCann's fourth point over the last four games -- he seems to have steadied his play after a tough early half of the month. The 27-year-old is up to nine goals, five assists, 63 shots on net, 15 PIM and a minus-10 rating through 23 appearances.
Adam Henrique ANA C
Ducks' Adam Henrique: Posts power-play helper in loss44m ago
Henrique notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.
Henrique snapped a four-game point drought with the helper. The 33-year-old has typically seen top-six minutes when Leo Carlsson is resting as he did Tuesday. Henrique is up to 10 points (four on the power play), 31 shots on net, 19 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 21 appearances.
Frank Vatrano ANA RW
Ducks' Frank Vatrano: Adds power-play helper1h ago
Vatrano notched a power-play assist, eight shots on goal, three hits and a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.
Vatrano helped out on Ryan Strome's second-period tally. After being goal-heavy early in the campaign, Vatrano has balanced out with four goals and seven helpers over 13 outings in November. The 29-year-old continues to return value in fantasy with 21 points (seven on the power play), 81 shots, 42 hits, 21 blocked shots, 31 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 22 appearances.
Ryan Strome ANA C
Ducks' Ryan Strome: Strikes on power play in loss1h ago
Strome scored a power-play goal on two shots and went minus-2 in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.
Strome got the Ducks on the board in the second period, but his tally was all the scoring they could muster against Thatcher Demko. The goal was Strome's first since Oct. 28. -- he managed five assists in 12 games between the markers. He's up to 16 points (three on the power play), 39 shots on net, 14 hits, 20 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 21 outings.
John Gibson ANA G
Ducks' John Gibson: Skid continues1h ago
Gibson allowed two goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks. The third goal was an empty-netter.
Gibson has lost five of his last six outings, with the lone exception being a relief appearance in which he didn't record a decision. Brock Boeser scored in the first period and Elias Pettersson had the decisive goal early in the third. Gibson's down to 4-9-0 with a 2.64 GAA and a .912 save percentage. He's trending in the wrong direction after a solid first month of the season, but Lukas Dostal has struggled in limited action lately, so Gibson's starting role is not in question.
Tyler Myers VAN D
Canucks' Tyler Myers: Puts up helper in win1h ago
Myers notched an assist, two hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.
Myers has produced six helpers over his last nine contests. He's played fairly well this season, though not to the level of his fellow blueliners Quinn Hughes and Filip Hronek. Myers has 11 points, 22 shots on net, 37 hits, 38 blocked shots, 22 PIM and a plus-11 rating through 23 appearances while mainly operating in a bottom-four role.
