  • Production Slowing Down For Isles' Bailey

    News: Josh Bailey captured an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Flyers.
    Analysis: Josh Bailey has been able to retain a top-six role for the Islanders even after the recent return of Kyle Okposo (eye) from injury, but his production has taken a steep hit since early March. After opening that month with points in four straight contests, Bailey has been limited to one goal, two assists, and a minus-11 rating over his last 12 games. It's hard to justify keeping him active with the fantasy playoffs in full swing, and with only two games left on the Isles' schedule, it might make sense to drop him outright.
  • Isles' Bailey Gets Power-Play Goal

    News: Josh Bailey scored his 15th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-1 loss to Montreal. The goal came on the power play.
    Analysis: He has six points in his last seven games and is now one point from matching his career high (38). He has grown his two-way game as well -- his plus-10 is the best mark of his career after suffering through multiple minus seasons. He may help you in deep formats.
  • Isles' Bailey Stays Hot With Two More Points

    News: Josh Bailey contributed a pair of assists in Monday's 4-3 win over the Maple Leafs.
    Analysis: Josh Bailey has been on a tear recently, notching at least a point in four straight with two goals and three assists in that span. With 36 points, the 25-year-old is just two away from matching his career high from last season, and his 14 goals are also only two shy of his personal best. Bailey has been great since his promotion to the top line, but with Kyle Okposo could soon displace him from that role as he nears a return from an eye injury,
  • Isles' Bailey: Three-Game Point Streak

    News: Josh Bailey tallied a goal in Saturday's shootout loss to the Panthers.
    Analysis: Josh Bailey has a point in three consecutive games to continue his drastic uptick in production since landing on a line with John Tavares. He's worth a look while he remains in that role, but his run with the top line could be coming to an end soon. Kyle Okposo (eye) resumed skating with the team Saturday morning, and may only need a few more practices before getting activated from IR. His return could potentially bump Bailey downward in the lineup.
  • Points Continue To Come In For Isles' Bailey

    News: Josh Bailey notched an assist and attempted four shots in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.
    Analysis: Josh Bailey has been thriving since January, which has unsurprisingly coincided with his placement on the Isles' top line next to John Tavares. The 25-year-old winger has put up six goals and 12 assists over his last 22 games, and there's no reason to suspect those totals to dip until Kyle Okposo (eye) is ready to reclaim his top-line gig.
  • Isles' Bailey: Three-Game Streak

    News: Josh Bailey scored two goals and added an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over Columbus.
    Analysis: He's on a three-game, five-point scoring streak that includes three goals. He's also plus-six in that span. He's fitting in just fine on that top line and is worth rolling as long as he stays in that situation.
  • Isles' Bailey Excelling On Top Line

    News: Josh Bailey notched an assist and two shot attempts in Tuesday's loss to the Panthers.
    Analysis: Josh Bailey continues to hold down a top-line role with John Tavares, though Kyle Opkoso (eye) is no longer joining them on the trio. Anders Lee has since stepped in to fill the void, and if his performance Tuesday (two goals) was any indication, the top line should be just fine. Bailey had a hand in Lee's first goal, snapping a minor two-game point drought for the latter. Dating back to Jan. 9, Bailey has produced two goals and eight assists in 10 games, making him a useful asset to pursue in mid-sized formats.
  • Isles' Bailey: 10 Points In Last 10 Games

    News: Josh Bailey delivered two more assists in Saturday's loss to Montreal.
    Analysis: That's five assists in two games and 10 points, including eight helpers, in his last 10 games. He might be the most-available top-line forward in the league. Go check.
