Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Collects assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon picked up an assist and four hits in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Blues in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.

Dillon has managed two assists, 59 hits, 18 blocked shots and 20 PIM in 17 postseason contests. He's also had 10 shots on goal and a minus-5 rating. The defense-first blueliner should not be counted on heavily for fantasy purposes.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Notches apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon had an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks.

Dillon now has 21 points in 80 games this year, all but one of which are helpers. He's a point shy of his career high, and with 196 hits, he's also one hit shy of matching a personal best. Both marks were set in 2017-18.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Gathers apple in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon earned an assist and added two hits and two blocked shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.

Dillon has 19 points (one goal, 18 helpers) in 71 games this season, just three points shy of the career-high 22 he accumulated last year. His usage remains defensive in nature, but with 170 hits and a respectable point count, he could help some fantasy owners in deeper formats.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Defense-first deployment continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon has six assists over his last 22 appearances.

In that span, the defenseman has added 52 hits, 29 PIM and 26 blocked shots. Dillon has recently seen third-pairing usage, averaging 19:31 a game over the 22-game sample, which is 2:17 higher than his season average. He has 18 points in 67 games overall, and likely doesn't warrant fantasy attention.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Role increasing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon pitched in an assist in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Oilers.

Only four forwards and two defensemen from the Sharks missed the scoresheet in this one, with Dillon pulling his weight as the primary setup man on Joe Thornton's goal to complement a plus-3 rating over 20:51 of ice time, including 2:52 on the penalty kill. Dillon isn't usually deployed this heavily, but the Sharks are dealing with injuries to Marc-Edouard Vlasic (undisclosed) and Justin Braun (knee), and the contingency plan has the B.C. native paired up with elite blueliner Erik Karlsson at even strength.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Emerges with rare assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon produced an assist to complement a plus-2 rating in Friday's 3-2 road loss to the Stars.

Dillon is a punishing defenseman who rarely shows up on the scoresheet, but he and Erik Karlsson were able to factor into Logan Couture's third-period tally in the narrow loss. We can't imagine Dillon being owned in any type of fantasy league, though he does have an important penalty-killing role for the Sharks.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Rallies club with impressive shorthanded tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon delivered a shorthanded goal in Tuesday's 5-4 road win over the Predators.

Dillon caught the opposition napping and went coast-to-coast for his first point of the season. This was a huge moment for the third-pairing defenseman because it sparked a rally consisting of three unanswered goals to saddle the Predators with a regulation loss at their own barn.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Snaps drought in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon set up both first-period goals Wednesday, helping his team claim a 4-0 win over the Golden Knights in Game 4.

Dillon hadn't posted a point since tallying an assist in the first two games against Los Angeles in the first round. He stepped up nicely in this contest despite accruing 10 PIM. If you're desperate, he can be a decent play, but in most situations he's better left off your roster.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: On fire over last two weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 5-1 victory over Calgary.

Dillon has a remarkable eight points, including three goals, in his last seven games. Why is it remarkable? Dillon had just 12 points in the previous 67 games. He's an excellent waiver grab right now if you need to cover for an injury or are simply desperate for points.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Contributes two assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon contributed a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over the Devils.

Dillon is now riding a five-game point streak and is up to 18 points in 72 games on the season. The 27-year-old typically isn't a significant offensive contributor, but he's scored twice in his last four games and is contributing offense without any power-play time. He likely won't keep up this production rate, but the third-pairing blueliner is still worth owning in some deep leagues.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Spending time on first pairing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon has notched one goal and two assists in his last seven games while recording 18 hits and 11 blocked shots during that span.

Dillon has been receiving a steady 18:23 of ice time in 2017-18 and has now collected eight points (one assist, seven goals) in 40 contests. The 27-year-old has also notched 110 hits thus far, 20th most in the NHL. While Dillon won't wow you with his point production, he's been spending the majority of his time lately paired with Brent Burns, which could lead to a slight increase in the point column.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Back from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon's one-game suspension has been served. He'll be eligible to return against the visiting Senators on Saturday.

The depth defenseman unleashed a vicious slash on Washington's Madison Bowey on Monday, but we're guessing not many fantasy owners noticed that Dillon was forced to sit Thursday versus the Hurricanes. The physical skater has accumulated 27 PIM, 72 hits and 29 blocked shots this season, albeit with only five assists representing his point total through 26 games.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Faces one-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon was suspended one game for slashing Washington's Madison Bowey on Monday.

Dillon's slash was extremely dangerous, so many weren't surprised by the punishment. With no other healthy blueliners to step in, the Sharks may have to call up another a man from the minors to fill in Thursday against Carolina.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Hearing scheduled with Department of Player Safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Tuesday regarding his slash on Washington's Madison Bowey during Monday's 4-1 loss.

Dillon's slash on Bowey was pretty vicious, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the NHL dish out some additional punishment in the form of a fine or suspension. The result of Dillon's hearing should be announced prior to Thursday's game against the Hurricanes.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Throws two shots on goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon fired two shots on net, recorded a hit and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

Dillon has recorded five points in his first 25 games and is already halfway to his 2016-17 total of 10, and his 70 hits are 19th-most in the league. The 27-year-old has been skating on the second pairing, and with Paul Martin (undisclosed) and Tim Heed (undisclosed) both on injured reserve, he should continue to log a decent chunk of minutes.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Logs season-high 21:01 in win over Blueshirts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillion recorded a shot and three hits with a plus-1 rating through 21:01 of ice time during Monday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

This was Dillion's heftiest workload of the campaign, as he entered with an average of just 16:13 of ice time. However, with San Jose in cruise control for the majority of the game, head coach Peter DeBoer was able to roll out all his blue liners somewhat regularly Monday. Typically a third-pairing defenseman, Dillon could continue to see a few more minutes moving forward, as the Sharks are relying on a number of inexperienced rearguards with Paul Martin (ankle) on injured reserve. Still, Dillon has hardly tilted the fantasy scales this season with three helpers, nine shots, 22 hits and a plus-3 rating, and he's unlikely to morph into a serviceable asset in most settings.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Two points in last three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon has recorded a pair of assists over his last three contests.

Given that Dillon has just eight points on the season, his recent production should probably qualify as something of a hot streak. Even though the defenseman rarely gets on the scoresheet, his 134 hits are the 36th most in the league, which might spur owners in the very deepest of leagues to make use of him -- although there's still probably not enough here to move the fantasy needle much.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Dishing out more hits this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon has just four assists in 42 games this season, but is on pace for a career high in hits with 101 thus far.

Interestingly enough, Dillon's uptick in hits comes in conjunction with a career low of ice time (16:22 on average). Because of his extreme lack of offensive production, he's not likely to provide enough value -- even in leagues that count hits -- to warrant fantasy ownership, however.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Struggling to produce
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon has just a single point in 21 games this season.

The 26-year-old rearguard has averaged almost 16 minutes of ice time per contest this year, which makes his single assist that much more lackluster given his relatively frequent usage. Dillon is a stay-at-home type that's more valuable to the Sharks than in fantasy circles, so those needing to shore up their blue line in deeper formats would be better off looking elsewhere.

Sharks' Brenden Dillon: Tallies assist Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dillon recorded an assist in the first period of Saturday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

This was a rare point for the 25-year-old rearguard, who managed just 11 points in 2015-16 despite playing in 76 games. Dillon doesn't have much fantasy relevance, if any, as he averaged less than 17 minutes per game last season and receives next to no power-play time. He did, however, have 154 hits and 89 blocked shots last year, which could conceivably be of some value in daily contests -- as long as the price is right.
