Red Wings' Alex Biega: Two helpers in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega recorded two assists in Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Stars.

The 33-year-old was placed on waivers by Detroit only last week, but after going unclaimed he found himself back in the lineup as the seventh defenseman Monday and made an impact. Biega has three points, all helpers, in seven games this season, but his lack of consistent ice time and tenuous role on the roster are big red flags for his fantasy value.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega was waived by the Red Wings on Sunday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.

Biega played in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Hurricanes -- his first appearance since February -- and notched an assist. If the 33-year-old defenseman clears waivers, he'll likely shift to the taxi squad.

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Impactful showing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega registered an assist Saturday in a 5-4 shootout win over the Hurricanes.

This counts as the first point for Biega, as he's only appeared in four contests this season. Regarded as a depth defenseman, Biega doesn't see the ice often enough to give fantasy managers hope that his offensive production will continue with any degree of consistency.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Moves to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega was assigned to the taxi squad Monday.

Biega has suited up in just three games this year, averaging just 11:26 of ice time per contest and recording a minus-2 rating. The 32-year-old isn't a fixture in the lineup, but with Troy Stecher (lower body) on injured reserve and Patrik Nemeth in COVID-19 protocol, Biega has a good chance to stay in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega has played just two games this season, but he could make his third appearance in Sunday's game. If he draws into the lineup, the 32-year-old likely will play on the third pairing.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 32-year-old continues to bounce around between the taxi squad and active roster this season, as he's only seen action in two games this season. Biega was earned a plus-1 rating and two hits across 8:59 of ice time in Saturday's win over the Panthers. Biega will likely return to the active roster ahead of Tuesday's clash with Nashville.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Lands extension with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Wings signed Biega to a one-year, $875,000 contract extension Sunday.

Biega has tallied just three assists in 47 games with the Red Wings this season. The 31-year-old blueliner should continue to get regular playing time on Detroit's blue line next season.

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Contributes assist Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega notched an assist, two blocked shots and a team-high six hits in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Avalanche.

Biega picked up his second helpers in seven games, but he's had just three assists all season. The 31-year-old blueliner has added 107 hits, 52 shots and 44 blocked shots in 46 contests. Despite being on pace to play a career-high in games, Biega could have one of his worst years on offense -- there's virtually no reason for fantasy owners to keep track of his production.

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Surprise producer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega supplied a primary assist Tuesday in a 4-3 win over the Canadiens.

Biega set the table for the first of two goals by Andreas Athanasiou, and the defenseman rounded out the steady performance with two hits and a blocked shot over 19:47 of ice time. Biega could see a slight boost in fantasy value as long as he continues to share the ice with a surging Athanasiou, but keep in mind that this was just his second point in 40 games as a Red Wing.

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Struggles with larger workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega logged a season-high 20:55 of ice time in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

Biega saw additional shifts once Mike Green departed the contest with an upper-body injury, but the game couldn't end soon enough for the former, as he skated to a minus-4 rating. The ex-Canuck plays aggressively (61 hits) and occasionally jumps in front of the puck (26 blocked shots), though he's not a viable fantasy option on a porous Red Wings club.

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Collects random helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega registered an assist Sunday in a 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.

This was Biega's first point as a Red Wing. As a third-pairing defenseman playing for the league's weakest offense at 2.16 goals per game, he has no fantasy appeal.

Red Wings' Alex Biega: Registers four hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biega dished out four hits in 16:14 of ice time versus Carolina on Sunday.

Biega appears to have worked his way into the lineup of late, appearing in five of the Wings' previous seven contests, in which he averaged 12:52 of ice time and registered three shots, three blocks and 11 hits. The blueliner shouldn't be expected to start racking up points and is far from a lock for the lineup, which makes him a low-end fantasy option.
