Jake DeBrusk Headshot

DeBrusk assisted on the game-tying goal and minutes later scored the eventual game-winner Saturday against San Jose.

DeBrusk is making a strong impact in his debut NHL season, notching four goals and nine points through 18 contests. The 21-year-old is slotted on the second line and seeing occasional power-play time. His strong totals over his WHL and AHL careers indicate he's one to watch in the coming years. DeBrusk was a healthy scratch at a point this season, but if he can stick in the lineup, he offers some valuable services in deeper formats.

Clay Matthews Headshot

Matthews (groin) will not return to Sunday's game against the Ravens, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Matthews suffered the injury in the first half and was subsequently ruled out after a halftime evaluation. Kyler Fackrell and Ahmad Brooks will step in opposite Nick Perry at outside linebacker for Green Bay.
2:35 pm (EST)
Evan Smith Headshot

Smith is being evaluated for a concussion during Sunday's game against Miami, Jenna Laine of reports.

Depending on the results of this evaluation, Smith may be placed into the league's concussion protocol. For the time being, though, the experienced Kevin Pamphile will slot into the left guard position.
2:35 pm (EST)
Patrick Beverley Headshot

Beverley (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Knicks, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Beverley has missed the last five games because of a sore right knee, but is trending towards full strength. He'll likely test out the injury during Monday's morning shootaround, with another update coming shortly after that session regarding his potential availability. If Beverley does return, that should send Sindarius Thornwell back to a bench role.
2:24 pm (EST)
Shawn Lauvao Headshot

Lauvao is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a neck injury, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Lauvao was questionable for Sunday's game as he has been dealing with a neck stinger since late October, and he appears to have aggravated the injury. Tony Bergstrom stepped in at left guard in his absence.
2:24 pm (EST)
Markieff Morris Headshot

Morris is expected to be limited to around 24 minutes of playing time during Sunday's matchup with the Raptors, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.

Morris missed the first seven games of the season following offseason sports hernia surgery and with the Wizards heading into a back-to-back set, they'll attempt to limit Morris' overall workload to avoid additional strain on the previous injury. That being said, fantasy owners may want to look elsewhere for power forward options until Morris is on a full workload.
2:17 pm (EST)
Jamie Meder Headshot

Meder (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

The out designation could signal long-term ailment for Meder, and he'll have one week to recover before Week 12's matchup with the Bengals. Expect more updates on this injury when the Browns resume practice on Wednesday, and Larry Ogunjobi will fill in for the time being.
2:15 pm (EST)
Marshon Lattimore Headshot

Lattimore sustained an ankle injury and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Redskins, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Lattimore would represent a huge loss for the Saints defense should he be unable to return. New Orleans is already without safety Kenny Vaccaro (groin), and De'Vante Harris and P.J. Williams will see increased workloads if Lattimore remains out.
2:14 pm (EST)
Tim Frazier Headshot

Frazier will start at point guard for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.

The Wizards are set to be without John Wall on Sunday, as he's dealing with a sore knee. That allows Frazier to pick up the start in his place, meaning a temporary uptick in his playing time and fantasy value. In his lone start earlier this season, Frazier posted four points, two rebounds and eight assists across 31 minutes. Frazier should be an intriguing cheaper point guard option for Sunday's DFS slate.
2:14 pm (EST)
Sven Baertschi Headshot

Baertschi scored his seventh goal of the season and tacked on a helper in Saturday's overtime loss to the Blues.

Baertschi is having a great season, managing 15 points in 20 contests. The top line that also includes Bo Horvat and Brock Boeser has been responsible for a huge portion of the team's offense this season and Baertschi has chipped in with seven tallies. What's taken the sniper to new fantasy levels this season is his role with the man advantage, as the sniper has already doubled his previous career high in power-play goals. The 23-year-old is being consistent enough to warrant a look in almost all fantasy settings.
