  • Bruins' David Backes: Chips in two assists against Ducks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/17) Backes collected two assists, threw five body checks and registered a plus-3 rating during Wednesday's loss to Anaheim.

    The veteran winger is struggling to generate offense and has just three goals and nine points through his past 20 games. His 23 PIM and 60 hits during the span help, but in most seasonal leagues the lack of scoring makes him a marginal fantasy asset. Backes has been playing with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand of late, though, so there is potential for him to begin marking the scoresheet more frequently going forward.

    Bruins' David Backes: Busts brutal slump with three-point night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/17) Backes exploded for a goal and two assists in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.

    He bookended this game, opening the scoring 52 seconds in and later helping Brad Marchand seal the deal with an empty-netter. This was huge for Backes, as he had been mired in an absolutely excruciating slump -- just a single lonely assist along with a minus-11 rating in his past 12 games. He's still seeing steady minutes anyway alongside the likes of Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, so there's buy-low value here.

    Bruins' David Backes: Logs six hits Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/1/17) Backes recorded six hits in 14:22 worth of ice time in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Lightning.

    Backes, who logged a minus-2 rating in the game, has now gone five games without scoring a point. Overall, the veteran power forward has recorded 11 goals and 22 points to go along with 54 PIM in 45 contests, numbers that limit his fantasy utility to shallower formats. Of course, given that he's been skating on a line with crafty center David Krejci and promising sniper Frank Vatrano, it's not hard to imagine Backes -- who scored 21 goals in 79 games for the Blues last season -- getting on something of a roll as the season rolls along.

    Bruins' David Backes: Shaping up to play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/17) Backes (concussion) is expected to suit up for Saturday's game against the Panthers, NHL.com reports.

    As noted in the report, Backes declared himself fit to play following the game-day skate. "Yesterday, full practice and today to be out there and feeling good again," the veteran forward said. "it's nice to feel back to normal and hopefully back in action and be in the swing and the routine of NHL hockey." It appears safe to deploy Backes -- who has 19 points in 33 games and lines up on the second power-play unit -- wherever you need him in fantasy land.

    Bruins' David Backes: Could play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/17) With reference to the possibility of Backes (concussion) playing Saturday against the Panthers, coach Claude Julien noted Friday, "I think it's looking good, but I haven't had any confirmation yet."

    Backes skated on a line with Ryan Spooner and David Krejci at Friday's practice, with the veteran power forward continuing to trend in the right direction as Saturday's contest approaches. Backes, who last suited up on Dec. 29, has logged nine goals and 19 points, to go along with 31 PIM in 33 games for the Bruins to date this season.

    Backes picked up an assist on the power play Tuesday in a 4-1 win over Calgary. He also picked two PIM, took one shot, delivered two hits, and blocked a shot in the contest.The Blues' captain is finishing off a fine season in which he has posted 55 points while topping 100 PIM and 200 hits. Backes' value takes a hit in leagues where those secondary contributions don't count, but where they do his is a top-tier forward.
