  • Trent Sherfield MIA WR
    Dolphins' Trent Sherfield: Productive as No. 3 receiver
    3h ago

    Sherfield secured four of six targets for 55 yards during Thursday's 27-15 loss to the Bengals.

    Sherfield handled a significant role behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle with Cedrick Wilson (ribs) inactive Thursday, recording the third highest receiving total of his career. If Wilson gets back on the field Week 5 versus the Jets, though, Sherfield will stand to revert to a depth spot. When Sherfield does get opportunities on offense in Miami, though, his familiarity with coach Mike McDaniel's offense makes him worthy of fantasy consideration in leagues with deep starting requirements.

    Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Good on three of four kicks
    3h ago

    Sanders converted three of four field-goal attempts and missed his only extra-point try during Thursday's 27-15 loss to the Bengals.

    Sanders' only missed field-goal try came from 50-plus yards out and with significant wind, but it was good to see him receive increased opportunities. In Miami's previous two games, Sanders had been limited to just extra-point conversions. The Dolphins are looking ahead to a divisional matchup against the Jets in Week 5.

    Dolphins' Chase Edmonds: Receiving score in loss
    9h ago

    Edmonds rushed five times for six yards and brought in two of three targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 27-15 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night.

    Edmonds logged 10 fewer carries than backfield mate Raheem Mostert, but he was able to find the end zone for the third time in the last two games via a seven-yard touchdown reception with seven seconds remaining in the first half. Edmonds has generated just 85 yards on 28 carries over his first four games, but he does have a pair of rushing scores along with Thursday's receiving touchdown, his first of the season. Edmonds figures to remain in a complementary role, albeit one that includes a solid red-zone presence thus far, irrespective of whether it's Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck) or Teddy Bridgewater under center for a Week 5 AFC East road showdown against the Jets a week from Sunday.

  • Raheem Mostert MIA RB
    Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Racks up 123 total yards in loss
    9h ago

    Mostert rushed 15 times for 69 yards and secured two of three targets for 12 yards in the Dolphins' 27-15 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night. He also returned two kickoffs for 42 yards.

    Mostert served as the clear lead back on the night, outpacing backfield mate Chase Edmonds by 10 carries while matching his two catches and three targets. The veteran's workload on the ground was a season high, which also led to a new 2022 high-water mark in rushing yardage. Mostert could have an elevated role once again in a Week 5 road showdown against the Jets a week from Sunday particularly if Teddy Bridgewater draws a start over Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck), considering head coach Mike McDaniel might run a bit more of a ground-based attack and Mostert could also play a key role as a safety-valve receiving option for the veteran backup.

  • Tyler Boyd CIN WR
    Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Versatile role in Week 4 win
    9h ago

    Boyd secured two of five targets for 47 yards and completed his only pass attempt for 23 yards in the Bengals' 27-15 win over the Dolphins on Thursday night.

    Boyd recorded a 43-yard reception that served as his second longest of the season and also made his mark on a trick play as a passer, hitting Ja'Marr Chase for a 23-yard gain down the right side of the field in the first half. The veteran slot man finished third behind fellow wideouts Tee Higgins and Ja'Marr Chase in receptions, receiving yards and targets, which is likely to be the case more often than not as the season unfolds, with an occasional exception. Boyd should see some solid volume in what could be an all-hands-on-deck game for the Bengals' air attack a week from Sunday against the division-rival Ravens on the road.

  • Jaylen Waddle MIA WR
    Dolphins' Jaylen Waddle: Limited to two grabs Thursday
    9h ago

    Waddle secured two of five targets for 39 yards in the Dolphins' 27-15 loss to the Bengals on Thursday night.

    Waddle uncharacteristically checked in third in receptions, receiving yards and targets for the Dolphins on the night, with Teddy Bridgewater focusing more on Tyreek Hill and even Trent Sherfield after he entered the game for an injured Tua Tagovailoa (head/neck) in the second quarter. Waddle had produced a stellar 19-342-3 line on 30 targets through his first three games, so there's reason to believe he'll bounce back with stronger numbers irrespective of who's under center during a Week 5 road battle against the Jets a week from Sunday.

    White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Picks up 34th save
    5h ago

    Hendriks walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Twins.

    Hendriks maintained a one-run lead to record his 34th save of the season. He's turned in seven consecutive scoreless appearances, and he's maintained a 9:2 K:BB across 6.2 innings in that span. While he hasn't replicated his dominant 2021 campaign, Hendriks still has a very solid 2.96 ERA and 1.02 WHIP across 54.2 frames on the campaign.

    White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Six more punchouts
    5h ago

    Giolito allowed two earned runs on for hits and three walks while striking out six across five innings Thursday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.

    Giolito allowed four of the first six batters he faced to reach base, which accounted for both of the earned runs against him. However, he settled in from there -- with the exception of his control problems -- and he racked up 12 swinging strikes on 93 total pitches. Giolito has failed to meet expectations this season, though he has maintained a 3.71 ERA with a 31:11 K:BB across 26.2 innings and five starts in September.

  • Louie Varland MIN SP
    Twins' Louie Varland: No decision against White Sox
    5h ago

    Varland allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three across five innings Thursday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Varland ran into trouble in the third inning, as he allowed all three of his hits and both of his earned runs in the frame. In three starts since entering the Twins' rotation on Sept. 17, Volland has a 5.17 ERA with a 9:5 K:BB across 15.2 frames. He showed more strikeout upside in the upper levels of the minors, though his six swinging strikes across 72 total pitches suggest that may not translate immediately in the majors.

  • Kyle Stowers BAL LF
    Orioles' Kyle Stowers: Slugs third career homer
    5h ago

    Stowers went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Red Sox.

    Stowers took Matt Strahm yeard in the seventh inning to tie the game and tally his third career homer. He's gone deep twice in his last nine starts, and he's also chipped in a .360 batting average with six RBI and six runs scored in that span. Stowers has been fairly impressive across the first 79 plate appearances of his career by maintaining a 99 wRC+.

  • Michael Baumann BAL RP
    Orioles' Mike Baumann: Works four innings
    5h ago

    Baumann allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two across four innings Thursday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Baumann made his second consecutive turn through the rotation and was limited to 74 pitches as a result. Both of the earned runs against him came in the fourth inning, when he allowed two doubles and a single. Baumann will likely get a final start prior to the close of the regular season, and he's allowed a combined four earned runs with a 4:2 K:BB across his last two starts -- spanning eight innings.

  • J.D. Martinez BOS DH
    Red Sox's J.D. Martinez: Slugs 14th homer
    5h ago

    Martinez went 2-for-4 with a double, a two-run home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Orioles.

    Martinez took Dillon Tate deep in the eighth inning to provide the game-winning runs and his 14th homer of the season. He has a modest four-game hitting streak, though his production in that span is notable as he's smacked three doubles and two homers. Despite the recent hot stretch, Martinez has only a .169 ISO across 577 plate appearances this season -- his lowest mark since 2013.

  • David Nwaba HOU SF
    Thunder's David Nwaba: Heading to Oklahoma City
    12h ago

    Nwaba -- along with Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss -- was traded from the Rockets to the Thunder on Thursday in exchange for Derrick Favors, Ty Jerome, Maurice Harkless, Theo Maledon and a 2025 second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    A last-minute trade before the preseason starts, Nwaba is apparently heading to Oklahoma City where he'll try to earn a roster spot on a young squad. The forward appeared in 46 games last year with Houston and averaged 5.1 points and 3.3 rebounds and shot 48.3 percent overall from the field.

    Thunder's Sterling Brown: Shipped to OKC

    Brown -- along with David Nwaba, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss -- was traded from the Rockets to the Thunder on Thursday in exchange for Derrick Favors, Ty Jerome, Maurice Harkless, Theo Maledon and a 2025 second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Brown was acquired by the Rockets from the Mavericks via trade in June, but he'll now join the Thunder as a depth piece ahead of the 2022-23 season. In 49 games with Dallas last season, Brown averaged 3.3 points and 3.0 rebounds across 12.8 minutes per contest.

    Rockets' Ty Jerome: Heading to Houston
    12h ago

    Jerome, along with three other players, have been traded to the Rockets on Thursday in exchange for four players, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Jerome, who likely will be waived by the Rockets, just finished his third season in the NBA with the Thunder. The 25-year-old guard spent two seasons with Oklahoma City, where he averaged 8.9 points, 3.0 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 0.6 steals during 20.3 minutes of action. If Jerome does indeed hit free agency after being waived, a reunion with Phoenix is rumored to be a possibility.

    Thunder's Marquese Chriss: Dealt to Thunder

    Chriss -- along with David Nwaba, Sterling Brown and Trey Burke -- was traded from the Thunder to the Rockets on Thursday in exchange for Derrick Favors, Ty Jerome, Maurice Harkless, Theo Maledon and a 2025 second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    The veteran center is on the move again, this time heading to Oklahoma City. Chriss was recently part of the trade that sent Christian Wood to Dallas back in June. Looking ahead, Chriss likely won't make much of a fantasy impact on a Thunder squad that is already heavy in the frontcourt.

  • Derrick Favors OKC C
    Thunder's Derrick Favors: Gets dealt to Houston

    The Thunder traded Favors, along with Theo Maledon, Ty Jerome, Maurice Harkless and a 2025 second-round pick to the Rockets in exchange for David Nwaba, Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Favors is set to join Houston after playing with the Thunder for just one season, where he averaged 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds over 16.7 minutes per game. The Rockets dealt Christian Wood to the Mavericks over the offseason, likely indicating that Alperen Sengun will be the starting center for Houston. The veteran center figures to see a depth role behind Alperen Sengun this upcoming season.

    Rockets' Maurice Harkless: Headed to Houston
    12h ago

    Harkless -- along with Derrick Favors, Ty Jerome, Theo Maledon and a 2025 second-round pick -- was traded from the Thunder to the Rockets on Thursday in exchange for David Nwaba, Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    It's only been two days since Harkless was acquired by the Thunder from the Hawks via trade, but he'll now join his third team in three months as soon as the trade is finalized. It's unclear what Harkless' role will be with the Rockets, but assuming he stays put, he'll provide depth at both forward spots for the 2022-23 season. In 47 appearances last season with the Kings, Harkless averaged 4.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per contest.

    Stars' Ty Dellandrea: Sustains broken finger

    Dellandrea will be out for a couple of weeks due to a broken bone in his finger, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Dellandrea's injury won't require surgery, but it will cost him the rest of the preseason. There's a chance he could still make the Stars' Opening Night roster if he only misses two weeks, but the team may want the 22-year-old to get some game action in with AHL Texas first.

    Devils' Tyce Thompson: Injured in Thursday's game

    Thompson (undisclosed) left Thursday's game versus the Rangers with an injury, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Thompson logged just one shift in the first period and didn't return, though information regarding his injury was not available immediately after the game. The 23-year-old forward was likely to be a long shot for the NHL roster this year, so his injury isn't likely to have a large fantasy impact.
