  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Scores lone goal in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orlov recorded a goal, four shots and three hits through 21:56 of ice time (1:31 on the power play) during Monday's 3-1 loss to the Islanders. Don't look now, but Orlov is locked into an offensive surge with two goals, eight points and 22 shots through his past 11 contests. He continues to pad the peripheral categories and is currently providing plenty of value in the majority of fantasy settings. However, his lack of power-play time with the No. 1 unit does limit his upside, and he has proven to be a streaky scorer. Still, as long as expectations are kept in check, Orlov is a solid supporting piece for virtual blue lines.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Lights lamp Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orlov recorded a goal during Saturday's 3-1 win over the Wild. The goal gives Orlov a disappointing two goals and four points in 21 games. Languishing alongside a minus-3 rating, the 25-year-old blueliner has been very slow to start after signing a massive contract extension during the offseason. Fantasy owners should wait a little longer to see if he can right the ship, but it's not looking like a breakout campaign is in store for the young Russian in 2017-18.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Gets first goal Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orlov potted a goal and added four shots during Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Oilers. The 26-year-old has had a dreadful start to the season with just one goal and three points in 18 games. Fantasy owners can only hope that the marker turns things around for the Russian blueliner, who had 33 points and a plus-30 rating a season ago.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Snaps point drought Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orlov had an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Bruins. The helper marks just the second point for Orlov in Washington's first 14 games. No doubt he misses Matt Niskanen (upper body), but more was expected out of the Russian blueliner after he received a six-year, $30.6 million extension over the summer. Expect things to turn around for the 26-year-old, but his fantasy value is in a holding pattern until he can break out of this slump in a more significant fashion.

  • Orlov had an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win against the Red Wings. Orlov has disappointed to start the season, as this marks his only scoresheet appearance of the campaign after posting 33 points and a plus-30 rating in 2016-17. With a significant boost in ice time (23:58 per game) and skating on the second power-play unit, the Russian blueliner is in position to start producing at a more reasonable clip moving forward. He's a good buy-low candidate and should still be owned in the majority of fantasy settings.
