Dillon has recorded a pair of assists in his last three contests. Given that Dillon has just eight points on the season, his recent production should probably qualify as something of a hot streak. Even though the defenseman rarely gets on the scoresheet, his 134 hits are the 36th most in the league, which might spur owners in the very deepest of leagues to make use of him -- although there's still probably not enough here to move the fantasy needle much.
Dillon has just four assists in 42 games this season, but is on pace for a career high in hits with 101 thus far. Interestingly enough, Dillon's uptick in hits comes in conjunction with a career low of ice time (16:22 on average). Because of his extreme lack of offensive production, he's not likely to provide enough value -- even in leagues that count hits -- to warrant fantasy ownership, however.
Dillon has just a single point in 21 games this season. The 26-year-old rearguard has averaged almost 16 minutes of ice time per contest this year, which makes his single assist that much more lackluster given his relatively frequent usage. Dillon is a stay-at-home type that's more valuable to the Sharks than in fantasy arenas, so those needing to shore up their blue line in deeper formats would be best served to look elsewhere.
Dillon recorded an assist in the first period of Saturday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets. This was a rare point for the 25-year-old rearguard, who managed just 11 points in 2015-16 despite playing in 76 games. Dillon doesn't have much fantasy relevance, if any, as he averaged less than 17 minutes per game last season and receives next to no power-play time. He did, however, have 154 hits and 89 blocked shots last year, which could conceivably be of some value in daily contests -- as long as the price is right.
Dillon picked up a pair of helpers and three hits in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Wild. The 25-year-old blueliner managed to record just his second multi-point outing of the season, with his only real value being in hits. Dillon has amassed 148 to date, which is respectable for a defenseman on the third pair averaging under 17 minutes of ice time per game. Don't expect these type of outbursts to become the norm.
