  • Blues' David Backes: Tallies two assists Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/16) Backes chipped in with assists on both St. Louis goals Wednesday in a 2-1 win over Detroit.

    Backes has been reasonably productive of late, recording four points in his last five games. He's still having a bit of a rough season by his standards with 28 points in 50 contests, but the veteran power forward is still an above-average multi-categorical contributor that'll help out with shots on goal, PIM and hits. Hopefully he can find a way to light the lamp a bit more in the second half, though, as his 12 goals have him on pace for just 20 this season, which would be his lowest total since 2009-10 (17).

    Blues' David Backes: Pots empty-netter Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/16) Backes scored an empty-net goal Tuesday in a 5-2 win over visiting New Jersey.

    That's 12 goals and 25 points 46 games this season for the American power forward, who has helped round out his decreased scoring production with 39 PIM and 96 shots on goal. The 31-year-old hasn't scored less than 24 goals or 54 points in a full NHL season since 2009-10 and normally eclipses the 100-PIM mark every year, so the fact that he's on pace for 21 goals, 44 points and 70 PIM is likely a letdown for owners that drafted Backes for his prowess across multiple fantasy categories.

    Blues' David Backes: Leads Blues past Stars

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/13/15) Backes scored the game-winning goal and added an assist Saturday against the Stars.

    A strong fantasy night for Backes, who also dropped the gloves, earning himself a five-minute major. The 31-year-old captain has now scored in three straight games and is up to 17 points (nine goals) in 30 games on the year. His strong PIM totals, combined with his 20-30-goal potential makes him a solid all-around fantasy option.

    Blues' David Backes: Assists game-tying goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/15) Backes picked up an assist in the Blues' comeback win Monday against the Sabres.

    Even with the assist, Backes saw a significant drop in ice time Monday, logging just over 15 minutes, more than four minutes below his season average. His struggle to regain last season's 50-point form persists, managing only two assists in the last four games.

    Blues' David Backes: Scores two points Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/4/15) Backes scored a goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 OT win over the Blackhawks. He also skated to a plus-2 and picked up two PIM.

    Despite now having only six points in 13 games this season, Backes has been much better of late, scoring three goals and recording an assist while taking seven shots on goal in the last three games -- all against quality opponents in Chicago, L.A. and Minnesota. Aside from his scoring woes, the Blues' captain hasn't been as truculent as usual either, spending just six minutes in the sin bin this year. When all is said and done, though, Backes should still be able to flirt with 50+ points and 100 PIM this year, although it wouldn't be entirely surprising if he fell short given the slow start.

    April 3, 2015: Blues' Backes Has Assist In Win
    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.
