  • Eller contributed an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Bruins. The Danish forward is having possibly the best stretch of his career with three goals and seven points in his last seven games. Having eclipsed the 30-point mark only once in his career, it's easy for skepticism to creep in over his likelihood of sustaining this pace, but the 28-year-old has been playing inspired hockey of late and it cannot be ignored. This hot streak is worth a look in standard formats, and he is definitely worth owning in deeper leagues for the foreseeable future.

  • Eller collected two goals, an assist, three shots and a minor penalty through 16:46 (2:34 on the power play) of ice time during Thursday's 4-3 win over the Islanders. Eller also recorded two points against the Oilers on Oct. 28, and he now has an impressive three goals, six points, 16 shots and 14 PIM through his past five games. The 28-year-old center has flashed offensive upside in the past but has never been able to score consistently enough to be a reliable fantasy asset in most settings. Even with the recent uptick in production, it's probably wise to keep expectations in check for Eller.

  • Eller recorded a goal, an assist and six shots in Saturday's 5-2 comeback win over the Oilers. This was possibly Eller's best game as a Capital as he was effective at both ends of the ice despite taking three minor penalties. The Danish forward could use more nights like this heading into unrestricted free agency, and may get more opportunities offensively now that Washington is without Brett Connolly (upper body) and Andre Burakovsky (thumb) for the foreseeable future. Only a lack of power-play time limits his upside as he's on track for a career year, so those in deeper formats should consider adding him.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Returning to action Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Eller (illness) will return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Wings. Eller missed Tuesday's game against Toronto due to an illness, but the 28-year-old Dane will return to his role centering the Capitals' third line against Detroit. Eller's known more for his abilities as a penalty-killing specialist than his offensive aptitude, so his return will likely go unnoticed by most fantasy owners.

  • Capitals' Lars Eller: Out Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Eller (illness) won't play Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. Eller was deemed a game-time decision for Tuesday's match after participating in morning skate, but the 28-year-old pivot evidently isn't feeling well enough to gut it out against Toronto. Tyler Graovac will replace Eller in the lineup against the Maple Leafs, centering Brett Connolly and Tom Wilson on the Capitals' third line.
