  • Abdelkader registered an assist during Tuesday's 6-5 shootout loss to Tampa Bay. Abdelkader picked up his fifth assist of the season during the back-and-forth loss. The inconsistent winger is hard to trust for fantasy purposes, despite seeing over 20 minutes of ice time in recent contests. The assist Tuesday gave Abdelkader just nine points through 28 appearances this season.

  • Abdelkader has been upgraded to the top line with Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill needing to find a replacement for Darren Helm, who is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks with an upper-body injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Blashill stopped short of officially declaring that Abdelkader would stick on the top line with Dylan Larkin and Anthony Mantha in Wednesday's game against the Bruins, but the physical utility winger reportedly practiced with those very players for two straight days. "Helmer is a little quicker, but I think Abby has been skating really good," Blashill said. If Abdelkader does remain on the top line, he could turn out to be a terrific value play in DFS contests. The speedy Larkin is averaging close to a point per game and Mantha's scored three times in the past four.

  • Abdelkader contributed a power-play assist to Detroit's 6-1 victory over the visiting Coyotes on Tuesday. Abdelkader is probably not the first Red Wing to cross your mind when it comes to fantasy options, but he's pointed in five of the past eight games, including four goals over that span. He's returned to prominence as a value play in a variety of virtual settings.

  • Abdelkader found the back of the net in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout home win over the Canucks. Abdelkader has shifted gears in Motown, as he has three goals in the past five games -- all at home. Still, it's anyone's guess if the Michigan native can keep this up given that his ice time figure (15:39) has dropped for the third straight year. Abdelkader is also only averaging one shot per contest to render him a run-of-the-mill option in most fantasy leagues.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Abdelkader provided a game-winning, shorthanded goal in Thursday's 4-3 home win over the Devils. Abdelkader cleaned up a Luke Glendening shot on the rebound after jumping out to a 2-on-1 breakaway. This was the physical third-line winger's second goal in the last three games, but Abdelkader only has three points in 13 games to keep him off the radar in most fantasy settings.
