James Shields Headshot

James Shields won't opt out of his contact through the 2018 season.

This is probably a wise move by Shields considering how lackluster he was for the better part of the 2016 season. Shields has a spot locked up in Chicago's rotation next year and if he were to opt out, he'd likely lose quite a bit of money. The hope is that he will pitch well enough over the next two years to warrant one final payday as his career winds down.

Carlos Santana Headshot

Indians may use Carlos Santana in left field in Game 3.

With the World Series shifting to a National League park, the Indians are going to have to make a couple of tough decisions regarding their defensive setup. Mainly that involved whether manager Terry Francona will choose to put Carlos Santana in left field. Santana has played just four innings in left field during his major league career, so there is extreme risk involved. With that said, Cleveland desperately wants to keep Santana's bat in the lineup so it is a risk they are most likely going to take.

Kosta Koufos Headshot

Kosta Koufus to start at center against the Spurs on Thursday.

This is the second straight start for Koufus to start the 2016-17 season and the Kings are hoping he fares much better than he did on Wednesday night against the Suns. Koufus contributed just two points and four rebounds against Phoenix and will look to improve on Thursday, although the matchup against San Antonio is about as tough as it gets. He could be used as a punt play if you're playing the late slate in DFS games.

Arron Afflalo Headshot

Arron Afflalo is in the starting lineup against the Spurs on Thursday.

Afflalo played 26 minutes on Wednesday night against Phoenix but only managed to score eight points. He will once again get the start on Thursday and could see increased opportunities with Kawhi Leonard likely guarding Rudy Gay for the majority of the game.

DeMarco Murray Headshot

DeMarco Murray (foot) returned against the Jaguars on Thursday.

Fantasy owners can now breathe a sigh of relief. With Tennessee up by over 20 points, the Titans coaching staff may choose to let Derrick Henry see the bulk of the carries during the remainder of Thursday's game.

Aaron Colvin Headshot

Aaron Colvin (calf) is questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Titans.

With the Jaguars in a deep hole the team may decided to keep Colvin on the sidelines as a precautionary measure. Jacksonville should update his status soon.

Luc Mbah a Moute Headshot

Luc Mbah a Moute will start against the Trail Blazers on Thursday.

Just because Mbah a Moute is getting the start doesn't mean he will amount to much of anything of the offensive side of the ball. Because of his lack of an offensive game, Mbah a Moute is not a recommended play in any DFS format.

Mason Plumlee Headshot

Mason Plumlee will start against the Clippers on Thursday.

Plumlee will once again get the start at center for the Trail Blazers and hopes to stay out of foul trouble and improve on his dreadful game against the Jazz. He should see 20-25 minutes on the court Thursday night.

Lamar Miller Headshot

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien remains optimistic that Lamar Miller (shoulder) will be able to play in Week 8.

Miller is finally finding the end zone after going scoreless over his first five games. The Texans have a much easier matchup this week against the Lions, but Brock Osweiler and the passing game have been dreadful and that means they'll be counting heavily on Miller.

Kyle Anderson Headshot

Kyle Anderson will start against the Kings on Thursday.

Anderson will make his second start of the season for San Antonio and should see roughly 20-25 minutes. It's worth noting that Jonathan Simmons came off the bench for San Antonio during their blowout win over Golden State, playing 28 minutes and scoring 20 points.
