  • Sabres' Cody Franson: Grabs two assists Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/16) Franson collected two helpers in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Montreal.

    The pair of apples snapped a five-game point drought for the rearguard, who's up to a modest 16 points in 51 games this year. Franson is a distant second-best option on the Sabres' blue line behind breakout third-year NHLer Rasmus Ristolainen (32 points), but still makes for a serviceable depth option in deeper leagues.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Held without a point in seven games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/11/16) Franson failed to register a point Sunday against Winnipeg, extending his cold streak to seven games.

    Franson played just 14:58 on Sunday even though Jake McCabe (lower body) didn't play the final 9:40 of the third period, the fourth time in five games he's played 15 minutes or less. With just 13 points and a minus-4 rating in 42 games, the 6-foot-5 Franson has neither been a top power-play quarterback nor a bruising, crease-clearing force. He's firmly entrenched on the team's third pairing and has seen young players such as McCabe leapfrog him on the depth chart. Franson himself was surprised about the lack of interest in him over the summer, finally inking a two-year contract in September, but it looks like there were good reasons he couldn't attract any suitors. He's waiver wire fodder until he gets a bigger role.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Notches two points, including first goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/15) Franson scored his first goal of the season and chipped in a power-play assist Tuesday in a win over the Lightning.

    While he's been a reliable presence on the Buffalo blue line, Franson's offensive game has only come around in fits and stats, with Tuesday arguably marking his finest effort of the year. All his points have come in the last nine games after he opened his Sabres career with six scoreless efforts.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Tallies two helpers in huge 7-2 loss to Montreal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/23/15) Franson was the lone bright spot for Buffalo in a 7-2 beatdown at the hands of the Canadiens on Friday, recording two assists.

    The rearguard somehow skated to an even rating despite the carnage going on around him while picking up his first points of the season. Franson is far from the best fantasy option on Buffalo's blue line given the emergence of Rasmus Ristolainen and the impending return of Zach Bogosian, but the 28-year-old has a couple 30-point seasons under his belt and is worth marking down on watch lists in deeper leagues.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Returns to practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/20/15) Franson returned to practice Tuesday after taking a maintenance day on Monday.

    Franson should be good to go Wednesday against Toronto, his former team. He has yet to score a point in five games this season, but continues to be a staple on the power play. He's worth keeping an eye on in fantasy leagues given his offensive potential. Consistency continues to be the biggest problem, however, with six shots on goal against Columbus bust just one shot in his next two games.

  • April 11, 2015: Preds' Franson To Miss Season Finale
    Franson (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Stars, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.The Predators will rest three defensemen (Franson, Shea Weber, and Roman Josi) will injuries Saturday, though all are believed to be minor. Since the team has already secured its playoff spot, Franson seems to have been ruled out of Saturday's meaningless season finale for maintenance-related reasons more than anything else. He's expected to be ready to play for Game 1 of the postseason.
