  • Sabres' Brian Gionta: Will play 1,000th career game Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/17) Monday's contest against the Panthers will be the 1,000th game of Gionta's career.

    It's quite the accomplishment for the 37-year-old, who's been criticized for being too small throughout his career. The Sabres captain is no longer the goal scorer he once was, but he has certainly been a consistent producer during his time in Buffalo, scoring at least 30 points in each of his past three seasons. The Sabres captain has been a staple in the top-nine, but is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. His fantasy value is minimal in standard formats, although he may be worth a streaming start if he plays alongside Jack Eichel. Gionta has 14 goals this season and his 10.4 shooting percentage is his highest mark in three years.

    Sabres' Brian Gionta: Big effort wasted Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/17) Gionta managed a power-play goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-3 road loss to the Penguins.

    Both points took place in the first period, as the Sabres ended up squandering a 3-0 lead after the first frame. Gionta is lauded for his leadership abilities, but that only goes so far in the numbers-hungry world of fantasy hockey. He has three two-point efforts since the beginning of February (17 games), albeit with no goals or assists in the rest of those contests. It's hard to trust a guy like him in shallow leagues.

    Sabres' Brian Gionta: Breaks slump with two-point effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/1/17) Gionta tallied a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Predators.

    He'd missed the scoresheet nine consecutive times since recording two assists against the Sharks back on Feb. 7, some three weeks ago. Gionta managed to produce at a slightly elevated pace for a good chunk of the season, but he's fallen off dramatically, and with a modest 29 points in 63 games for the season, his fantasy relevance remains quite low.

    Sabres' Brian Gionta: Contributes two helpers in comeback win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/17) Gionta picked up a pair of assists in a 5-4 overtime win against San Jose on Tuesday.

    He'd missed the scoresheet in three straight following a four-game point streak, so Gionta's had a bit of a see-saw effect lately. Nonetheless, he's been surprisingly productive, at least by deep-league standards. No one's going to swoon over his roughly 40-point pace, but that's usable production in certain formats.

    Sabres' Brian Gionta: Extends point streak to three games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/17) Gionta's assist on Evander Kane's goal Thursday against Dallas now gives him a point in three straight games.

    Gionta has been very productive of late, and prior to his current streak had a goal and two assists in three games. He's on pace to set career highs as a Sabre with 11 goals and 24 points in 48 games, after finishing with 33 and 35 points over the past two seasons. A big reason for his increased production is his shooting percentage at 11.7 percent, which is almost five percent higher than last year's. He's a depth fantasy forward only in the deepest of leagues -- there's not much upside to be had in the 38-year-old.
