Calle Jarnkrok Headshot

Jarnkrok posted a goal with a hit in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

Jarnkrok has been red hot since the end of January, posting six goals with 10 points over his past 11 games. He has been logging plenty of time on the man advantage in the Music City, endearing himself to fantasy owners in leagues of 12 or more teams. If he continues his hot streak he might be worthy of attention in all formats. DFS players will also want to take advantage of his mid-tier pricing until he starts to cool.

Ryan Lavarnway Headshot

Lavarnway, who agreed to a minor league contract with the A's on Nov. 30, is looking to make an impact in both the World Baseball Classic and with the A's this spring, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The veteran will depart A's camp on Feb. 27 to play for Team Israel in Seoul, South Korea, and will be busy before and after the tournament trying to make his mark on the A's. The former Red Sox prospect, who was a sixth-round pick in 2008 out of Yale, has hit only .198 over 134 major league games in stints with Boston, the Orioles and Braves. However, Oakland is reportedly impressed with his ability to handle pitchers, and he also comes to the Bay Area on the recommendation of former A's and current Red Sox hitting coach Chili Davis, who was familiar with Lavarnway from his time in the Boston organization. Manager Bob Melvin has described Lavarnway as a possible "late bloomer" from his observations thus far, and he could certainly carve a out a spot for himself on the major league roster considering Oakland's relative dearth of right-handed backstop depth behind Josh Phegley. "It seemed like there would be an opportunity here," he said, "and that's all I can ask for at this point in my career - for someone to believe in me and give me a chance to play up to my potential."

Mike Fisher Headshot

Fisher posted an assist with a plus-1 rating and a minor penalty in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

Fisher has struggled in February with just two goals and four points through eight games after a season-high 10 points in the month of January. However, he still logs plenty of time on the power-play unit and should not be discarded in most fantasy leagues just yet.

Ryan Ellis Headshot

Ellis picked up a goal on his only shot of the game in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

Ellis was without a goal in 11 straight games after a three-goal outburst in back-to-back outings Jan. 19-20. He is a fantasy defenseman on the rise, posting decent offensive numbers with 51 hits and 89 blocked shots through 50 games. Ellis is worth a look in most formats.

Filip Forsberg Headshot

Forsberg picked up an assist with a minor penalty in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

Forsberg bounced back nicely after an atrocious game Saturday in Minnesota when he was scoreless with a minus-4 rating. While he hasn't been great in the month of February, posting just one goal and four points, he still has a respectable seven goals and 11 points over his past 17 games. He remains a must-have fantasy option in most formats.

Juuse Saros Headshot

Saros turned aside 35 of the 38 shots he faced in Sunday's 4-3 win against the Blue Jackets.

Saros picked up his first victory in nearly a month. He hasn't looked as good as he did earlier in the season, but he has been matched up against some big-time offensive units lately. Saros is nothing more than a depth fantasy option in standard pools and a decent low-end No. 2 streaming option in leagues allowing daily transactions.

Mallex Smith Headshot

Smith (oblique) could be held out of early spring training games according to manager Kevin Cash, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The speedster, who arrived in Tampa in the trade that sent Drew Smyly to Seattle, could start the season at the major league level depending on the Rays' outfield situation and Smith's own spring training performance. However, the 23-year-old may have to wait a few games into spring training before making his case, as Smith continues to deal with a strained oblique he suffered in the Puerto Rican league in late December.

Tyreke Evans Headshot

Evans is part of an agreed upon five-player deal sending the swingman from the Pelicans to the Kings, sources said Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

Evans has been struggling from the perimeter in New Orleans, so perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good. It is the second tour of duty for Evans in Sacto, as he spent his first four NBA seasons there, including a career-high 20.1 points in his rookie season of 2009-10. With Rudy Gay (Achilles) done for the season and DeMarcus Cousins going to New Orleans, Evans has a good chance of being one of the team's primary scoring options with a huge bump in fantasy appeal in the process.

Buddy Hield Headshot

Hield will be traded to Sacramento along with Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, and a future first and second-round draft pick in exchange for Demarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.

Hield will head to Sacramento and join the Kings' backcourt in what is one of the biggest blockbuster deals in recent memory. The loss of Cousins means the Kings could yet again be in rebuilding mode, with the team now lacking a certified impact player. Hield joins a crowded Sacramento frontcourt that already comprises of Arron Afflalo, Ben McLemore, Garrett Temple, Ty Lawson and Darren Collison, so it will be interesting to see how he is utilized, especially with Tyreke Evans also joining the Kings' ranks. The rookie guard is currently averaging 8.6 points and 2.9 rebounds on the season.

Colby Rasmus Headshot

Rasmus (groin) could be held out of early spring training games according to manager Kevin Cash, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

After a pair of October surgeries that addressed core muscle and hip issues, Rasmus will be handled with care early spring training. The veteran slugger slashed just .206/.286/.355 with the Astros in 2016, but did smack 10 doubles and 15 homers, while also driving in 54 runs. He's projected to slot in as both a left fielder and designated hitter in the coming season for the Rays.
