DFS NFL Optimal Lineups: Conference Championship

Jeremy Lamb Headshot

Jeremy Lamb (foot) is doubtful for Saturday's game.

Lamb will likely miss his fifth straight game on Saturday. He's been dealing with a foot injury so there's no timetable for his return as of right now. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marco Belinelli, and Ramon Sessions should see extra minutes but Kemba Walker is still the PG to own in that offense so the other three hold little fantasy value.

Taylor Gabriel Headshot

Taylor Gabriel (foot) who fully participated in practice Friday, is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.

The Falcons enter the NFC Championship game significantly healthier than the Packers who have an abundance of injuries especially at the WR position. Gabriel will likely be a key target for Matt Ryan on Sunday as Green Bay has one of the worst secondaries in the league and they'll likely try to key in on Julio Jones.

Steven Adams Headshot

Steven Adams still in the concussion protocol. Thunder won’t know for sure if he’s traveling with the team until Sunday.

Adams has missed OKC's last two games with a concussion. With the Thunder off until Monday, Adams has some time to make progress in the protocol. He's been active during shooting drills, but he's obviously avoiding any contact drills. He may not play in Monday's game, but he is making progress which is a good sign.

Neftali Feliz Headshot

Neftali Feliz is expected to enter the season as the Brewers closer.

Feliz signed with the Brewers just a few days ago and it was no secret that he would likely be the closer heading in to 2017. The bullpen was a big area of need for Milwaukee heading in to the offseason and they certainly needed a closer. Feliz could be a very good value at the RP position in fantasy baseball if you don't draft a stud closer early on.

Isaiah Crowell Headshot

Browns were in heavy talks on a deal for Isaiah Crowell this season, but they are in a stalemate now.

Crowell finished 48 yards short of 1,000 rushing yards but he was a very reliable and trustworthy option for the Cleveland Browns. He never saw more than 20 touches on the ground in any game, but the Browns felt more comfortable using him in the passing game as the season went on. He's still an under-the-radar type of player and he will likely be a decent RB2 option no matter where he ends up next season.

Ryon Healy Headshot

Ryon Healy will see most of his at-bats at first base and designated hitter in 2017.

Healy has done well hitting at all levels of the minor leagues. He's 25 years old so he's a bit older than your typical prospect, but he hit .305 with just 13 HR's in 72 games last season in the big leagues. If he can string together a full season with Oakland he could play 140+ games and easily get to 25 home runs. He's not a well-known player so he could be a decent value in later rounds.

Anthony Davis Headshot

Coach Alvin Gentry said Anthony Davis (thigh contusion) did not practice Saturday. He does not believe it is a long term issue though.

It's good to hear that the injury isn't believed to be serious considering he was dealing with thumb and hip injuries heading in to the game. New Orleans doesn't play again until Monday against Cleveland so Davis should be a full go with the weekend off. He may not practice as a precaution so he doesn't aggravate any of his injuries.

Ricky Rubio Headshot

Ricky Rubio is away from team for personal reasons and will miss the game Sunday. He is expected to rejoin the team on Monday.

Rubio left Thursday's game with a hip injury and won't play Saturday, but for personal reasons. He's been the subject of recent trade discussions. He was previously linked to Reggie Jackson as possible trade counterparts in an effort for Minnesota to get more minutes for Kris Dunn. With Rubio out, Dunn certainly does become a cheap and intriguing DFS option.

Richaun Holmes Headshot

Richaun Holmes was recalled and will be in uniform for the Sixers Saturday night in Atlanta.

Holmes was recalled from the D-League, but don't be surprised if he's sent back down again after a game or two with Philadelphia. Joel Embiid had a couple of scary falls Friday night and the 76ers have ruled him out for Saturday night's game in Atlanta. Holmes simply gives Philly some depth in the front court, but he likely won't see much playing time.

J.C. Tretter Headshot

J.C. Tretter (knee) had surgery Tuesday.

Tretter originally injured his knee in Week 8 against Atlanta, but aggravated the injury during his recovery. The Packers have not yet decided to place him on IR, in which case they might activate a WR off the practice squad with Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams injured as well. Tretter really doesn't have any chance of playing on Sunday, but news on him is worth following in the event that they do put him on IR.
