Vlasic is averaging a career-high 24:22 of ice time per game but has yet to score a point this season.
After scoring at least 20 points in six straight seasons, Vlasic recorded just 15 points in 70 games last year. His massive increase in ice time may not be sustainable and his lack of power play involvement will hinder his fantasy ceiling.
Vlasic recorded an assist and a pair of blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
Vlasic set up Evander Kane on an odd-man rush for the latter's second goal of the game. The 32-year-old Vlasic has picked up assists in consecutive outings. The blueliner has 15 points, 89 blocks, 69 shots on goal and a minus-7 rating through 66 contests this year -- he may fall short of the 20-point threshold for the first time since the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign.
Vlasic notched an assist, three shots on net, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-0 win over the Penguins.
Vlasic snapped a six-game point drought by setting up Evander Kane's first-period marker. The 32-year-old defenseman now has 14 points, 87 blocks, 68 shots and a minus-7 rating through 65 appearances this year.
Vlasic had an assist and five shots on goal in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Flames.

Vlasic registered an assist, two shots on net, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers.
Vlasic was held off the scoresheet in 19 straight games before his helper Thursday. Usually a solid depth option, the 32-year-old has been far from it this season. He's at 11 points, 75 blocks and 53 shots in 55 contests. On an inconsistent Sharks team, there's little reason to believe Vlasic will pick up the pace over the final two months.
Vlasic fired two shots on net and notched a plus-1 rating across 24:04 in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Calgary.
Vlasic produced his 10th point of the season in his 1,000th career game back on Dec. 14, but he's been stuck in a 19-game pointless streak since then. The 32-year-old has been a drag for fantasy purposes during the slump, registering a minus-10 rating, 18 shots on net and 21 blocked shots. It's likely he'll finish below 20 points this year for the first time since the 2012-13 lockout season.
Vlasic picked up an assist, four blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.
Vlasic skated in his 1,000th NHL regular-season game Saturday, all with the Sharks. His helper came in the final minute, setting up Logan Couture's empty-net goal. Vlasic has 10 points, 52 blocks, 33 shots on goal and a plus-1 rating in 35 appearances this year. He's typically good for 25 to 30 points a year, but he could come in slightly lower in 2019-20 after a slow start.
Vlasic posted one goal on one shot with a plus-2 rating, two blocks and a hit in a 4-1 victory against the Kings on Friday.
That shot on net was his first since he scored against Detroit on Nov. 16. Vlasic has scored three goals on his last nine shots, including two on his last two shots. That gives him four goals already, which is more than last season, but he also has an unsustainable 17.4 shooting percentage. Vlasic is bound to see a regression in scoring, especially if he continues to average under 1.0 shot per game.
Vlasic registered an assist and three blocked shots in Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over the Golden Knights.
The defenseman has found a groove on offense in November, with five of his six points coming in 10 games this month. Vlasic has added 31 blocked shots and 22 shots on goal in 23 appearances in 2019-20. He's still not much of an asset for fantasy owners outside of deeper formats.
Vlasic scored a goal in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Red Wings.
The 32-year-old put the Sharks ahead 2-0 with a second-period tally. Vlasic has five points and 26 blocked shots through 21 games this season. Those numbers won't earn him much attention in fantasy circles.
Vlasic recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Predators.
Vlasic had the secondary helper on Tomas Hertl's tally, which was the Sharks' only goal in regulation. Vlasic has been limited to four points in 18 contests this year, but three of his points have come in the last five games. The 32-year-old has added 25 blocks and 21 shots on goal.
Vlasic scored a shorthanded goal on two shots and added a pair of blocked shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Canucks.
Vlasic has points in consecutive games and three points in 15 appearances overall this year. The defensive blueliner also has 19 blocked shots, but that's actually a bit of a slow pace for Vlasic. The 32-year-old also has a minus-10 rating in 2019-20, weighing down an already substandard stat line.
Vlasic is up to a goal and an assist in 14 games this season.
The 32-year-old defenseman's goal came Oct. 22 against the Sabres, while his assist was on a Barclay Goodrow goal in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Jets. Vlasic hasn't produced fewer than 23 points in the last six seasons, but an incredibly slow start to 2019-20 could threaten that streak of solid production.
Vlasic has gone scoreless while posting a minus-8 rating through six games this campaign.
The Sharks have had a dysfunctional start to the season, which is part of the reason Vlasic has struggled early on. However, the 32-year-old will be used sparingly on the power play this year, and instead will be tasked with shutting down the opposition's top offensive threats on a nightly basis, which will put a hard cap on his fantasy upside. At this point, Vlasic can be ignored in most formats.
Vlasic notched an assist, two shots and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blues in Game 3.

Vlasic managed an assist and a blocked shot in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
Vlasic has gone on a modest scoring binge with four points in his last four games, adding 11 blocked shots in that span as well. For the playoffs overall, he has seven points and 28 blocks in 13 appearances, which may be enough to earn a little attention in some DFS formats.
Vlasic scored twice on three shots and blocked four shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Avalanche in Game 6.
It's only the second two-goal game of Vlasic's career. The blueliner has three points in his last two games, accounting for all of his offense in the series. He's added 17 blocked shots in six outings, but aside from Monday's goal outburst, he isn't likely to produce much offense.
Vlasic picked up an assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Avalanche in Game 5.
The helper gives Vlasic a goal and three assists through 10 postseason appearances. He's also blocked 20 shots in the playoffs. Vlasic is usually counted on for defensive responsibility, but he can chip in a little bit of offense as well.
Vlasic assisted on Tomas Hertl's game-winning shorthanded goal in the second overtime period of Sunday's Game 6 win over Las Vegas.
What a difference it makes to the Sharks when Vlasic is helping to protect the goal. He missed Games 3 and 4, when the Sharks lost by a combined 11-3 score, and got hurt in their Game 2 loss when he played only 7:02. He now has a goal and two assists in the series.
Vlasic (undisclosed) will return to action for Thursday's Game 4 versus the Golden Knights, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
With the Sharks trailing 2-1 in their opening-round series versus the Golden Knights, they will get some reinforcements along the blue line in the form of the veteran rearguard. Vlasic posted a plus-1 rating during the first two games of the series and notched a goal and an assist in Game 1, so he could play a pivotal role if the Sharks are to make a comeback. Pickles saw a dip in his production this season to just 25 points, in part due to a drop in power play time.
