Galchenyuk, recently bumped off the team's top scoring line, did not pout following the demotion. All three of his points came on the power play, and as long as he is on the man advantage he remains a decent fantasy asset. The multi-point effort was just his second over the past 14 outings, but he remains a useful option in most formats. Galchenyuk hasn't gone more than two straight games without a point this season.
Dekker put up 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and a block in 28 minutes during a 125-108 loss to Golden State on Friday.
Although Dekker was off from three-point land, he registered his highest point total since December 14th against Sacramento. Dekker was in attack mode all night, an encouraging sign for his fantasy value, and also created second-chance opportunities with four offensive rebounds. He'll look to build on this performance Saturday against the Grizzlies.
Gordon was held to just six points (2-14 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 33 minutes during a 125-108 loss to the Warriors on Friday.
Gordon had a horrendous game from three-point range, and is now shooting just 30.6 percent from deep on a ridiculous 10.9 attempts per game in January. While his game is all threes and bull-dog layups, he has to be more judicious about his shot selection when he's off. The Rockets need Gordon to perform well to win. During the Rockets' 13 losses this year, Gordon has shot just 34.3 percent overall and 26.8 percent from three. During Houston's 32 wins, Gordon has hit 45.4 percent of his shots overall and 44.5 percent from beyond the arc.
The Habs defense limited the Devils to a season-low 17 shots on net, which was great news for Montoya and his fantasy owners. While he only starts roughly once per week, he has been decent when called upon. The backup has won four consecutive starts since Dec. 29, and he has yielded a total of 12 goals over his past six appearances. He is a solid handcuff for Carey Price owners, and a decent addition for depth at the position in deeper fantasy pools.
Mrazek stopped 34 of 37 shots during Friday's overtime loss to Buffalo.
While Mrazek was a tough-luck loser Friday, he also entered the game with an underwhelming four wins, 3.59 GAA and .875 save percentage over his prior 11 starts. He had allowed fewer than three goals just twice during the disappointing stretch, too. Detroit is having its worst season in decades, and it's had a significant impact on Mrazek's fantasy value. At this point, he's nothing more than a fringe No. 2 netminder for your virtual club.
