  • Sabres' Justin Falk: Returning to lineup Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/17) Falk (lower body) will play Saturday with the Maple Leafs in town.

    Falk will mix it up with some PIM and hits every now and then -- he's picked up 27 and 89 of those, respectively, over 46 contests this season -- but that about sums up what he can offer to fantasy owners.

    Sabres' Justin Falk: Could return to lineup Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/17) Falk has a "good chance" of returning to action Saturday against Toronto, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Falk's impending return to the lineup will bolster Buffalo's depth at defense, but it won't mean much to fantasy owners, as his meager offensive production -- seven points in 46 games this season -- keeps him from a practical option in all but the deepest of formats. The 28-year-old blueliner's status will be confirmed prior to puck drop Saturday evening.

    Sabres' Justin Falk: Remains day-to-day

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/17) Falk (lower body) is still considered day-to-day and will miss Monday's outing against Detroit.

    After re-inserting himself into the lineup -- following a seven-game stretch watching from the bench -- for five outings, Falk will now miss his third straight contest with this lingering lower-body injury. In order to fill the gap left by the 28-year-old, the Sabres called up Brady Austin and Casey Nelson, both of whom are expected to suit up versus the Red Wings. Falk is without a timeline to return, which leaves his stats for the remainder of the season up in the air.

    Sabres' Justin Falk: Dealing with lower-body ailment

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/17) Falk will be sidelined for a "few days" due to a lower-body injury.

    Buffalo will likely need to recall a defenseman from AHL Rochester ahead of Thursday's game in LA, as the team now only has five healthy blueliners on its roster with Falk in recovery mode. Falk's absence will weaken the Sabres' depth at defense, but won't mean much to fantasy owners, as his meager offensive production -- seven points in 46 games this campaign -- keeps him off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of formats.

    Sabres' Justin Falk: Signs one-year extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/6/17) Falk inked a one-year, $650,000 contract extension with the Sabres on Monday.

    Falk has been a pleasant surprise for the Sabres since he was recalled in November, but the blueliner doesn't provide a ton of value for fantasy purposes. He's notched just four points through 35 games this season, but has provided 61 hits over that span while averaging 13:11 of ice time and posting an even rating. He will remain with the club for at least one more campaign, earning the same amount he did this season.
