  • Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Promoted to top line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/20/16) Foligno skated on the top line at practice Monday and will remain there for Tuesday's game against Florida.

    Foligno was promoted Saturday against Carolina when he tallied an assist, but head coach Dan Bylsma was impressed with what he saw and will leave him on a line with Ryan O'Reilly and Sam Reinhart for the foreseeable future. Foligno brings some size and physicality and bumps Evander Kane to the third line, who will skate with Johan Larsson and Brian Gionta. Foligno's point production has crept up in each of his past five seasons, and with 9 points in 30 games so far is on pace for another career-high. Consistency has always been an issue for the 25-year-old, but perhaps he's finally figured it out and playing with the very dependable O'Reilly should certainly help. Until Foligno starts producing more on offense, he has relatively little fantasy value, but this promotion is a good sign he's trending in the right direction.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Tallies lone goal in loss Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/4/16) Foligno scored a goal -- his second of the season -- in a 2-1 losing effort to the visiting Maple Leafs on Thursday.

    He also fired off four shots on goal in 17:58 of ice time, which ties his season high. Foligno is in his sixth NHL season and has fallen in the 18-23-point range in each of the last four campaigns. That said, his four points in 10 contests thus far, a pace of roughly 33 points over a full 82-game slate, bodes well for his chances of reaching a new career high in 2016-17.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Enters season as third-line fixture

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/7/16) Foligno will re-unite with Johan Larsson and Brian Gionta to form the Sabres' third line, the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Foligno's lack of consistency from game to game has been maddening since becoming a full-time regular in 2012, but the 24-year-old has also managed to improve his point totals every year. Head coach Dan Bylsma discovered magic when he put Foligno together with Larsson at center and Gionta on the other wing, and the trio used their speed and tenacious forecheck to cause havoc. The Sabres still have a few lineup decisions to make, but the third line is already set. Foligno, who scored a career-high 10 goals last year, is an intriguing fantasy option in leagues that count hits and PIM. He's primed for a breakout season, but his offensive ceiling isn't very high and 20 goals would be a commendable feat.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Inks one-year deal with Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/14/16) Foligno signed a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Sabres on Thursday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.

    Foligno was solid in a bottom-six role with the Sabres last season, tallying 23 points (10 goals, 13 assists) and 193 hits over 75 games. The 6-foot-3 winger will slot into a similar role with the Sabres in 2016-17, and should be similarly productive barring injury.

    Sabres' Marcus Foligno: Nabs qualifying offer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/27/16) Foligno received a qualifying from the Sabres on Monday.

    The 24-year-old winger makes most of his impact utilized his 6-foot-3, 226-pound frame to inflict damage on opponents last season, collecting 193 hits in addition to 10 goals and 13 assists. While he likely won't be counted on to rack up points, Foligno did his job in 2015-16 and the Sabres appear ready to extend him if available. However, his future fantasy value should be the greatest in leagues that include the physical aspect of the game.

    March 31, 2015: Sabres' Foligno Registers Assist In Win
    Foligno pocketed an assist in Monday's win over the Coyotes.Foligno has three assists in his last four games, but that shouldn't be taken as an endorsement to go out and add him to your fantasy roster. His standing on the Sabres' roster is in itself detrimental to his plus/minus rating, and he doesn't have the requisite scoring skills to make up for it. Even after this minor run, Foligno still has a meager 17 points in 51 games this season.
