DFS NBA Optimal Lineups: January 24

Jarvis Landry Headshot

Jarvis Landry is seeking a new contract from Miami.

Landry has just one season remaining on his rookie contract, and he has definitely earned consideration on a lucrative extension. The three-year pro out of LSU has averaged 96 receptions per season and gained north of 1,100 yards in both 2015 and 2016.

Brian Price Headshot

Brian Price has been signed to a future contract by the Green Bay Packers.

Price has spent most of the 2016 season on the Packers' practice squad. The 22-year-old defensive tackle out of Texas-San Antonio was active during Week 3 of the regular season.

Jermaine Whitehead Headshot

Jermaine Whitehead has been signed to a future contract by the Green Bay Packers.

Whitehead spent most of the 2016 season on the Packers' practice squad, but he was active during Weeks 8 and 9 to provide depth in Green Bay's beat up secondary.

Ricky Rubio Headshot

Ricky Rubio is probable for Tuesday's game.

Rubio played just 17 minutes in last Thursday's game and sat out Sunday's contest entirely. The 26-year-old point guard is expected to be back in the Timberwolves' lineup Tuesday night, sending Kris Dunn back to the bench. Rubio averaged 9.8 points, 10.6 assists and 2.2 steals over Minnesota's first nine games this month.

Monta Ellis Headshot

Monta Ellis suffered a sprained ankle during Monday's contest and is questionable for the Pacers game on Thursday.

Ellis has really struggled of late, going over 10 points just twice in his last eight games. This sprained ankle could keep him off the court, but he does have two full days to rest before the team plays again. Consider him questionable for that matchup.

Brett Anderson Headshot

Update: Cubs have inked pitcher Brett Anderson to a one-year deal worth $3.5 million.

$3.5 million seems a bit pricy for me, but if he can stay healthy, he should pay off this contract. Anderson could slot in the rotation if a regular starter goes down with an injury, but he'll likely open the year in a long relief role. All Chicago is hoping for is that the southpaw can stay healthy.

Blake Griffin Headshot

Blake Griffin is expected to return to the Clippers lineup on Tuesday.

Griffin's right knee has kept him out of the lineup for 17 games now, but he's slated to return tomorrow against Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers. Fantasy owners have missed Griffin's presence the last few weeks, but fantasy owners must wait no more! Griffin is averaging 21.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game this season.

Paul Millsap Headshot

Update: Paul Millsap (elbow) has returned to the game.

Well, it can't be too serious, because he's already back on the court. He's good to go moving forward.

Paul Millsap Headshot

Paul Millsap is having his elbow looked at by trainers after a fall.

Millsap is one of the league's better power forwards and it would be a shame if he were to miss any extended amount of time. For Atlanta's sake, if they were thinking about trading him, they definitely don't want him to be seriously injured. Consider him questionable to return and day-to-day at the moment.

Brett Anderson Headshot

Brett Anderson has reportedly reached a deal with the Chicago Cubs.

This is a risky signing by the Cubs to say the least. Anderson fired 175.1 innings for the Athletics back in 2009, but he's topped that mark just once (2015) since that year. He's constantly dealing with injuries, which is why he often goes undrafted in fantasy leagues. He's too brittle and always seems to have bad luck. Expect him to slot in a long relief role.
