Patrick Patterson Headshot

Patrick Patterson (knee) is unlikely to play on Tuesday.

Patterson's status has been up in the air all day but we've finally learned that he won't suit up on Tuesday. With Patterson out, Lucas Nogueira is in line to start at power-forward and over the last two games, Nogueira has played 30-plus minutes in each game. Nogueira is cheap on all DFS sites and should be plugged into most of your lineups Tuesday.

Taj Gibson Headshot

Taj Gibson (ankle) was ruled out Tuesday's game.

Tuesday will be the first game Gibson will miss all year as Paul Zipser will replace him in the starting lineup. Zipser won't be the biggest minutes beneficiary as Nikola Mirotic is returning and Cristiano Felicio has been playing very well of late. Both of the latter players we mentioned are better DFS options than Zipser. We should consider Gibson day-to-day at this point.

Paul Zipser Headshot

Paul Zipser will likely start on Tuesday.

Taj Gibson will miss Tuesday's game which means Zipser will draw a start for the second consecutive game. Zipser played just 15 minutes against Memphis during the last game he started so we should see much of the same on Tuesday.

Colin Kaepernick Headshot

49ers plan to offer their head coaching job to Kyle Shanahan once the Falcons season has ended.

Obviously the 49ers are hoping that the end of the road for the Falcons is this weekend, but either they're going to offer Shanahan a contract. The Falcons were second in total yards and were the only team in football that scored north of 30 points per game at 33.8.

Corey Brewer Headshot

Corey Brewer will start on Tuesday.

Brewer has started a few games recently and has seen an uptick in playing time but nothing to excite you about for fantasy. He's only cleared 18 minutes in two of his past five games and has only scored double-digit points in one of those aforementioned five contests. Since it's a small five-game DFS slate on Tuesday, you could differentiate your lineup by using Sam Dekker, who provides more upside than Brewer.

Ryan Anderson Headshot

Ryan Anderson (illness) is out for Tuesday's game.

Anderson has been struck by the sickness that has swept across the NBA and will miss Tuesday's game because of it. Corey Brewer will slot in at small-forward while Trevor Ariza slides down to power-forward. Brewer isn't a very intriguing option at all but Ariza should see close to 40 minutes as long as this game stays close.

Wil Myers Headshot

Padres announced they have signed Wil Myers to a 6-year extension worth $83 million.

The former number one overall prospect in baseball finally stayed healthy for a full season and he made some serious cash because of it. He played a career-high 157 games while posting career marks in hits, runs, home runs, runs-batted-in, walks and stolen bases. Myers was only two home runs and two stolen bases away from the 30-30 club! The Padres have some really good young talent on the brink of the majors and some of them are likely to make the team out of Spring Training. Myers may have an even better campaign in 2017 if he has someone competent hitting behind him so he sees better pitches to hit. We should expect another 20-20 campaign from Myers making him an excellent fit in all fantasy formats.

Shawn Tolleson Headshot

Rays are finalizing a deal with Shawn Tolleson.

Not that long ago, 2015 that is, was Tolleson one of the more effective closers in all of baseball converting 35-of-37 opportunities. He struggled mightily in 2016 but he's getting another chance in Tampa. He won't close over guys like Colome and Boxberger, but he could find his way into the 9th inning role if he pitches well and injuries occur. Keep tabs on Tolleson during your season-long leagues.

Joel Embiid Headshot

Joel Embiid’s minute limit likely to remain 28 this season.

As much as we hope to see Embiid run wild and play 40 minutes in a close game, it's not going to happen in 2017. The 76ers plan on keeping Embiid on a minutes restriction and for good reason. He missed two full seasons and is finally getting a taste of live NBA action injury free. That being said, come the 2017-'18 campaign Embiid shouldn't be restricted at all is likely going to be one of the first centers taken in season-long leagues. It'll also be very interesting to see when Ben Simmons takes the floor how impactful it will be to Embiid's production. His usage rate will likely take a big hit which obviously could hurt his scoring output. The 76ers have an interesting dilemma on their hands going forward.

Charles Clay Headshot

The Bills have hired Rob Boras as their tight ends coach.

This is a really nice hire for Buffalo as they now have acquired Boras who spent the last two seasons as the Rams offensive coordinator. Buffalo tight ends were seemingly non-existent, like Buffalo's passing attack as a whole.
