  • Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Contributes to team's lone goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/7/17) Okposo contributed a primary assist Monday, but it wasn't enough as the Sabres lost to the Devils on the road, 2-1.

    Buffalo has gone 5-4-1 in the past 10 games, but remains buried within the Atlantic Division standings. Okposo has been efficient over that span, registering four goals on a 16.0 shooting percentage, as well as two assists and a plus-3 rating in that span. The power winger is not likely to reach the 64 points that he set as an Islander last season, though he's still garnering 3:14 of ice time on the top man-advantage unit with seven goals and 10 helpers had in that situation this campaign. You could do much worse than use Okposo as a No. 2 fantasy forward.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Ends game with overtime tally

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/17) Okposo scored the game-winning goal during Friday's overtime win against Detroit.

    It was Okposo's second consecutive game with a tally, and he's improved his season-long totals to 14 goals, 30 points and 111 shots through 44 games. He's likely capable of padding the scoresheet more frequently going forward, and a strong finish to the campaign isn't out of the question now that Buffalo is healthy up front. If there is a buy-low potential for Okposo acquiring him at a discount could pay off.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Selected for All-Star Game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/10/17) Okposo, who leads the Sabres with 12 goals and 27 points, has been selected for the NHL All-Star Game.

    The 28-year-old winger is enjoying a productive season despite injuries to top centers Ryan O'Reilly and Jack Eichel. The big power forward has come exactly as advertised, using his strength and skill to provide another dimension to the Sabres offense. Okposo is in the first year of a seven-year contract, which was signed this past summer. He remains a valuable fantasy player and on pace to notch his fourth career 20-goal season.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Extends point streak to four

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/17) Okposo had a power-play goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.

    Okposo has found the back of the net three times over his current four-game point streak. The former Islander topped 20 goals in two of his final three seasons downstate, and is well on pace to eclipse that mark once again with 12 tallies through 37 games up north. His subpar defensive play has remained constant as well, as Okposo's minus-2 plus-minus has him in the negatives for the sixth consecutive campaign.

    Sabres' Kyle Okposo: Fails to register a point in second straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/21/16) Despite skating 4 minutes on the power play and 18:26 overall, Okposo finished without a point for the second straight game in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Florida.

    After scoring five points in three games, Okposo's been held off the score sheet in his past two games, finishing with just a total of two shots on goal and a minus-2 rating. He currently leads all Sabres forwards in scoring with 22 points, but should be overtaken by Ryan O'Reilly (18) or Jack Eichel (eight points in 10 games) by the end of the season. Okposo continues to impress in his first season with Buffalo, however, and despite his recent scoring woes has registered at least one shot in each of his past 17 games -- a noteworthy feat for someone who doesn't shoot very much and has totaled over 200 shots in a season just twice in his career. He should be able to find the score sheet Thursday against Carolina.
