Ekholm hadn't scored points in his last three games, but he did rack up six PIM in those contests. The 25-year-old has been hot and cold this year, which makes it tough to trust him on a consistent basis, but he's clearly worked his way into solid value in deeper formats.
Johansen has five points over the course of a three-game streak, so he's producing well even while the Preds deliver inconsistent results. The 23-year-old is settled in with his new team and should continue to produce as a top-flight center.
Despite going on a hot streak with 11 points in eight games to start the new year, Silfverberg seems to have fallen back into his early season woes. He's failed to break onto the scoresheet in his last five outings. The drastic drop in production is especially surprising given that his role on the team hasn't changed one bit. No doubt Anaheim will be hoping to get the 25-year-old winger back on track to get more production out of that third line.
Marcus Thornton tallied 15 points (5-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, one rebound, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during the Houston Rockets ' 123-110 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Thornton is putting up 10.5 points, two rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 threes, 0.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 18 minutes per contest through four games this month. These numbers are nearly identical to his season averages, and the 28-year-old forward is typically hit-or-miss in his role as a scorer off the Rockets' bench.
Ty Lawson missed all four of his field goal attempts while handing out one assist in 16 minutes during the Houston Rockets ' 123-110 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
With averages of 5.2 points, two assists, one rebound, and 0.2 steals in 19 minutes per appearance over the last five games, Lawson continues to be one of the most disappointing draft picks in fantasy. The 28-year-old point guard is producing career-lows across almost every statistical category, and barring injuries or a trade, it's tough to picture Lawson turning things around this season.
