Player Outlook

Brandon Manning scuffled through a subpar 2016-17 campaign -- 12 points and a minus-12 rating over 65 games -- and then underwent offseason back surgery. Now 27 years old with a resume that's not impressing anyone, he may have a hard time even breaking into the Flyers' lineup this season, leaving his fantasy value close to nil even in leagues that count his modest contributions in hits and blocked shots.

  • Flyers' Brandon Manning: Going under knife
    By RotoWire Staff

    Manning will undergo surgery to repair a disc in his back, Dave Isaac of the Post-Courier reports. The defenseman missed two of the last four games of the season with what was called an upper-body injury, though it now appears to be a more serious issue. No timetable for Manning's recovery was given in the report, though these types of injuries can sideline players for months at a time. Playing in a career-high 65 games in 2016-17, Manning recorded three goals, 12 points and a minus-12 rating while mostly serving as bottom-pairing defenseman. Expect the team to give an update on Manning's condition as training camp approaches.

  • Flyers' Brandon Manning: Will sit out Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Manning won't play in Sunday's game, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports. The blueliner returned from injury Saturday, and it doesn't seem like this is injury related, but he will get the last game of the season off. His 12 points in 65 games are lackluster, but his 121 hits could move the needle in some leagues.

  • Flyers' Brandon Manning: Will suit up Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Manning (upper body) will return to action for Saturday's clash with Columbus, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Manning slots back into the lineup after a brief one-game absence due to an upper-body ailment. Even when healthy, the blueliner has offered little in terms of fantasy value, having failed to register a goal in 47 straight games -- a stretch in which he's garnered a paltry three helpers along with a minus-16 rating.

  • Manning is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports. This effectively rules him out of Tuesday evening's road contest against the Devils. Fellow defenseman Radko Gudas (undisclosed) is also ailing, so the Flyers have called up Samuel Morin and will likely start Nick Schultz as reinforcements on the third pair. This shuffling affects the Flyers far more than it does fantasy owners since most of the aforementioned players are physical agitators rather than premier point-packers from the back line.

  • Flyers' Brandon Manning: Ready to return Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Manning (shoulder) will return to Philadelphia's lineup for Thursday's game against Minnesota, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Manning's return to action will bolster the Flyers' blue-line depth, but it won't impact many fantasy owners' lineups, as the 26-year-old's lack of offensive production -- 10 points in 57 games this campaign -- makes him an impractical option in most formats. He's expected to skate alongside Radko Gudas on the second pairing.
