  • Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Continues solid run

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/14/18) 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.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Picks up scoring pace at home

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/7/18) 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.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Starting to heat up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/2/18) 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.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Finally earns point

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/18/18) Abdelkader managed a secondary assist in Thursday's 3-1 road loss to the Lightning.

    This was Abdelkader's first point of the season. He entered the game with a minus-5 rating, but not even his own helper could help him improve that mark in this one. The bottom line? We don't recommend rostering a bottom-six skater who plays for a team that remains winless two weeks into regular-season action.

    Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader: Uninspiring start to season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/18) Abdelkader is searching for his first point of the new season.

    Abdelkader has a $4.25 million cap hit for the next five seasons, but the Red Wings are winless through the first three games, and the supposed Jack of all trades (master of none) doesn't seem to be earning his keep. There's plenty of time for Abdelkader to settle into a groove to benefit his actual team, though we'd be surprised if he hasn't already tested the patience of fantasy owners abound.
