Raiders' Isaiah Johnson: Undergoes minor surgery7h ago
Johnson underwent minor back surgery Tuesday according to his personal Twitter account.
Johnson noted that the procedure was minor and he will be back in plenty of time for the 2020 season. Look for more updates on his status when the Raiders return for offseason workouts.
Jarran Reed SEA DT
Seahawks' Jarran Reed: Pass rush falls in 20198h ago
Reed, who made three tackles over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 27 tackles, two sacks and a pass breakup over 10 regular-season games.
Reed served a six-game suspension to start the season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, but he stayed was able to play every game for the rest of the season despite popping up on the injury report occasionally. The 27-year-old defensive tackle racked up 10.5 sacks and 31 quarterback pressures in the 2018 campaign, but those numbers dropped to two and 13 this year, which prorates to 3.2 and 20.8, respectively, over a full season. He's a valued run-stopper, though, and he'll likely be a top priority for the Seahawks to re-sign before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in March.
Tre Flowers SEA CB
Seahawks' Tre Flowers: Large tackle count in second year9h ago
Flowers, who posted 11 tackles over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 82 tackles, eight pass breakups and three interceptions over 15 reguar-season games.
Flowers -- a fifth-round pick in 2018 -- converted from safety to cornerback when he arrived in the NFL, and there have been predictable growing pains. Most noticeable is that he allowed three catches for 74 yards and two scores to Green Bay's Davante Adams in the divisional-round loss to the Packers. Of course, it's tough to track Adams in coverage, but it signals that he'll remain as the No. 2 corner behind Shaquill Griffin next year. The Seahawks could bring in competition through the draft or free agency during the offseason. Flowers is under his rookie contract for two more seasons.
Shaquill Griffin SEA CB
Seahawks' Shaquill Griffin: Improves in coverage in 20199h ago
Griffin, who made seven tackles and a pass breakup over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 65 tackles and 13 pass breakups over 14 regular-season games.
Griffin improved in coverage this season, as he yielded 7.3 yards per target and 39.9 receiving yards per game with just four touchdowns allowed. He served as the team's No. 1 corner opposite Tre Flowers, and Griffin earned an alternate bid to the Pro Bowl. Griffin -- a 2017 third-round pick -- is heading into the final year of his contract in 2020, and he'll look to prove to be a true lockdown corner against the strong NFC West.
Quandre Diggs SEA DB
Seahawks' Quandre Diggs: Performs well with Seahawks9h ago
Diggs, who made eight tackles over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 41 tackles, three pass breakups and three interceptions over 10 games between the Lions and Seahawks.
The Lions traded Diggs to the Seahawks after five games, but Diggs only managed to play in five games with Seattle due to hamstring and ankle injuries. Diggs made timely tackles for the Seahawks and ran an interception back for a touchdown, and he was a consistent every-down starter when healthy. The 26-year-old has two years remaining on his contract at a reasonable cap hit, so he's in line for another year as a starter in 2020. His role as a free safety hampers IDP value, however.
Bradley McDougald SEA SS
Seahawks' Bradley McDougald: Generates 70 stops in 20199h ago
McDougald, who recorded 15 tackles and a sack over two playoff games, finished the 2019 season with 70 tackles, 0.5 sacks, three pass breakups and two interceptions over 15 regular-season contests.
McDougald served as the team's starting strong safety for the second straight season, and he was solid against the run and in coverage. The 29-year-old led the team in postseason tackles, and he ranked fifth on the team in the regular season. He's in line for another starting role in 2020 -- the final year of his contract at a cap hit of $5.4 million -- but his IDP value isn't enticing since Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright eat up most of the stops.
Jason Adam TOR RP
Cubs' Jason Adam: Signs with Cubs8h ago
Adam signed a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Adam was non-tendered by the Blue Jays in early December but it's not overly surprising to see him garner interest elsewhere after posting a 2.91 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB across 21.2 innings during 2019. The 28-year-old could slot into a middle relief role with a strong spring training.
Josh Donaldson ATL 3B
Twins' Josh Donaldson: Inks four-year deal with Minnesota10h ago
Donaldson signed a four-year contract with the Twins on Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
According to Jeff Passan of ESPN.com, the deal is worth $92 million guaranteed and includes a fifth-year option that would push the value over $100 million, placing the 2015 American League MVP into a Twins lineup that already led the league in home runs last season. Donaldson had an impressive year himself in 2019 with the Braves, posting a .259/.379/.521 slash line with 37 home runs and 94 RBI in 155 games. Miguel Sano started 90 games at third base last season and just signed a three-year, $30 million extension with Minnesota last week, but he figures to be shifted to first base while Donaldson takes over at the hot corner.
Nate Jones TEX RP
Reds' Nate Jones: Latches on with Reds10h ago
Jones (forearm) signed a minor-league deal with the Reds on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Jones had his 2020 club option turned down by the Rangers in October, but he'll have a chance to state his case for the Reds' Opening Day roster in spring training. The 33-year-old was limited to 13 games in 2019 and had a 3.48 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 10:7 K:BB across 10.1 innings before undergoing right forearm surgery in May. Jones has good numbers over the last five years (2.67 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 164:49 K:BB over 141.2 innings), but he's been limited to 147 appearances due to injuries.
Matt Andriese LAA SP
Angels' Matt Andriese: Seen as starter13h ago
Andriese will come to camp as a starting pitcher following his trade to the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The 30-year-old owns a career 4.64 ERA in 49 starts. In 2019 for the Diamondbacks, his first season spent entirely in the bullpen, he posted a mediocre 4.71 ERA. Moving to the rotation would give him a better shot at fantasy relevance than a middle-relief role would, though the fact that he'll enter camp as a starter doesn't guarantee that he'll enter the regular season as one.
Luis Madero LAA SP
Angels' Luis Madero: Designated for assignment13h ago
Madero was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old reached Double-A Mobile for the first time last season but didn't exactly impress, posting a 5.72 ERA and a modest 18.3 percent strikeout rate. He did at least show good control, walking just 5.9 percent of opposing batters. He was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a space for Matt Andriese, acquired in a trade from Arizona in a corresponding move.
Matt Andriese LAA SP
Angels' Matt Andriese: Shipped to Angels13h ago
Andriese was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for Jeremy Beasley, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Andriese appeared in 54 games for the Diamondbacks last year as he operated out of the bullpen for the full season. The right-hander recorded a 4.71 ERA with a 79:27 K:BB over 70.2 innings while working mainly lower-leverage situations. The Angels' bullpen lacks experience, so it's possible Andriese could receive some consideration in more high-leverage situations if he can continue to develop.
Willie Cauley-Stein GS C
Warriors' Willie Cauley-Stein: Reduced role continues5h ago
Cauley-Stein had eight points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to Dallas.
Cauley-Stein's downward trajectory continued Tuesday, playing just 18 minutes despite the game going into garbage time. He is barely inside the top-300 over the past two weeks and the improvement of Omari Spellman has all but put an end to Caley-Stein's standard league dreams. If you are still holding for any reason, you should feel good about letting him go for basically any top-200 player right now.
Alec Burks GS SG
Warriors' Alec Burks: Only 10 points in loss5h ago
Burks produced 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to Dallas.
Burks struggled in the loss as his numbers continue to plateau. He was putting up top-50 numbers at one point but that production is beginning to level out as the Warriors begin to get healthy. He is still a 12-team option but if you are holding him, you simply need to keep your expectations in check moving forward.
Jordan Poole GS SG
Warriors' Jordan Poole: Scores team-high 17 points5h ago
Poole had 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to the Mavericks.
Poole scored 17 points Tuesday, eclipsing the 20 minute mark for the first time since late November. Damion Lee remained on the sidelines as the Warriors finalize his contract and this allowed Poole to step into a bigger role. Lee should be ready to go Thursday and that would likely result in Poole playing closer to 15 minutes. He is not a player to target in standard leagues.
Omari Spellman GS PF
Warriors' Omari Spellman: Underwhelming in loss5h ago
Spellman tallied just 10 points and four rebounds in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 loss to the Mavericks.
Spellman was disappointing in the loss, contributing very little despite still playing 27 minutes. He has emerged as the surprise starting center for the Warriors and has been a top-40 player over the past two weeks. If you made the move to pick him up recently, you would be well-advised to overlook this performance and hope he can get things going again when the Warriors face the Nuggets on Thursday.
Dorian Finney-Smith DAL SF
Mavericks' Dorian Finney-Smith: Disappoints in blowout victory5h ago
Finney-Smith finished with just six points, three assists and one rebound in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 victory over Golden State.
Finney-Smith matched Luka Doncic, playing a team-high 27 minutes. However, unlike Doncic, Finney-Smith was unable to put up even a semi-respectable level of production. He has been seeing big minutes on a nightly basis and is the 85th ranked player over the past two weeks. He is fine to add in a standard league but there is basically no upside and performances such as this are certainly not uncommon.
Boban Marjanovic DAL C
Mavericks' Boban Marjanovic: Plays 20 minutes in blowout5h ago
Marjanovic totaled 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 victory over the Warriors.
Marjanovic dominated during garbage time, recording his second double-double in under a week. This was only the second time this season Marjanovic has played at least 20 minutes, highlighting why he is impossible to trust in competitive leagues.
Cory Schneider NJ G
Devils' Cory Schneider: Makes 13 saves in relief1h ago
Schneider allowed one goal on 14 shots coming in relief during a 7-4 loss to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old still has a long way to go to make his numbers respectable, but this was a good start in the right direction. Prior to Tuesday, Schneider hadn't made an NHL appearance since Nov. 8, as he's spent most of this season in the minors trying to find his game again. It's too early to tell for sure if he has it again, but Schneider is off on the right foot. He is 0-4-1 with a 4.41 GAA and .858 save percentage in seven games this season.
Louis Domingue NJ G
Devils' Louis Domingue: Ends hot streak1h ago
Domingue allowed five goals on 19 shots before exiting almost halfway through the second period in a 7-4 loss to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old was 2-0-0 with a .959 save percentage in his three games prior to Tuesday's disaster, which resulted in Domingue getting pulled. Unfortunately, this performance just about undoes everything he just did in his last few games to improve his numbers. The 27-year-old is 3-5-0 with a 3.55 GAA and .884 save percentage this season.
Frederik Andersen TOR G
Maple Leafs' Frederik Andersen: Yields four goals in win1h ago
Andersen allowed four goals on 29 shots in a 7-4 victory over the Devils on Tuesday.
The Maple Leafs spotted Andersen a 4-0 lead, which became 6-1, but the Devils ruined Andersen's night by scoring three third-period goals. The Maple Leafs veteran netminder stopped just 20 of 23 at even strength, and he owns an .841 save percentage in his last four games. Andersen is 22-8-5 with a 2.86 GAA and .910 save percentage in 37 games this season.
Devan Dubnyk MIN G
Wild's Devan Dubnyk: Yields seven goals1h ago
Dubnyk allowed seven goals on 29 shots in a 7-3 loss to the Penguins on Tuesday.
The Wild trailed 4-1 going into the third period and tallied the next goal early in the final stanza, so Minnesota was still in this game after two periods. It got out of hand late, though, and that hurt Dubnyk because the Wild apparently didn't want to make a goaltender change with under a period to go. Dubnyk has really struggled lately, going 1-4-0 with an .867 save percentage in the last five games. He is 8-12-2 with a 3.35 GAA and .892 save percentage in 23 games this season.
Tristan Jarry PIT G
Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Wins third straight1h ago
Jarry allowed three goals on 29 shots in a 7-3 victory over the Wild on Tuesday.
Unfortunately, the 24-year-old yielded a power-play goal with about 10 seconds remaining. Without that goal, his statistics would have better reflected how well he played in the blowout win. Jarry has come back down to earth a bit lately, allowing three goals in each of his last five games, but he's still winning. He's 16-6-1 with a 2.12 GAA and .930 save percentage in 23 games this season.
Joel Farabee PHI LW
Flyers' Joel Farabee: Struggling to score3h ago
Farabee has zero goals or points with a minus-2 rating in his last nine games.
The first-round pick's rookie season has been a disappointment, especially lately. His last goal came on Dec. 3, and while he hasn't played in all of Philadelphia's games since that date, it's still been 16 contests since Farabee found the back of the net. His best contributions have been to the PIM category. He has three goals, 12 points, a minus-1 rating, 37 PIM and 55 shots in 37 games this season.
