|(3/28/17) Faulk scored two goals and registered nine shots on net during Monday's overtime loss to Detroit.|
The 25-year-old defenseman flashed his upside Monday, but the offense has been hit or miss of late, as Faulk has hit the scoresheet in just six of his past 21 games; he's totaled five goals, eight points and 57 shots in that span. For the campaign, he's matched last season's 16 tallies and has 17 helpers, so Faulk has maintained plenty of his fantasy value. Additionally, outside of his minus-11 rating, the peripheral numbers are solid (30 PIM, 101 hits and 76 blocked shots through 67 games). Now entering his prime, look for Faulk to continue providing strong fantasy numbers, and there's room for growth with a lot of high-upside players around him in Carolina.
