  • Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Disappearing act

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/1/18) Faulk went pointless for the seventh consecutive game Friday against the Ducks.

    Fantasy owners know full well that this is not unusual for Faulk -- he can get hot for a few games, then disappear for long stretches. Now with just eight points in 25 games, he will be lucky to crack the 30-point mark this season, given his current pace. Faulk is best left to the waiver wire in most standard formats.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: No longer a 40-point scorer

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/18/18) Faulk has just three assists in his last 10 games, and just eight points on the season thus far (one goal, seven assists).

    Faulk scored a career-high 49 points back in 2014-15 and, at the time, looked to be establishing himself as an elite scoring defenseman for years to come. Unfortunately, it's been all downhill for Faulk since then, as his point totals have consistently landed in the mid-30's ever since that record season four years ago. Now skating on the Canes' second defensive pairing with Calvin de Haan, he is currently on pace for yet another 30-plus campaign, giving him only modest fantasy value in most formats.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Notches helper in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/3/18) Faulk snapped a three-game point drought with an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Coyotes.

    Now with just six points through 13 games, Faulk is trending towards a 35-40 point campaign, which is roughly in line with his output over the past three seasons. He's still seeing a ton of ice time, however -- 23:35 against the 'Yotes, including a whopping 6:29 on the power play -- so his opportunities to contribute offensively should remain plentiful.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: Two helpers in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/8/18) Faulk added a pair of assists in Sunday's 8-5 win over the Rangers.

    The 26-year-old is now playing second-pairing minutes, but it didn't stop Faulk from bagging a pair of helpers in Sunday's contest. Faulk was a career-worst minus-26 last season, but much of that can be attributed to playing on a not-so-great team. As it currently stands, the American-born blueliner remains a top-four defenseman but he could play his way back onto the top pairing with more performances like this.

    Hurricanes' Justin Faulk: In danger of losing top-pairing role

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/6/18) Faulk, who sustained an upper-body injury to cut his 2017-18 campaign short, could slide down the depth chart in favor of Brett Pesce this season, Scott Burnside of The Athletic reports.

    As noted in this report, the Hurricanes have impressive depth on the blue line. Calvin de Haan signed as a free agent in July, and Faulk himself remains with the Canes despite rampant speculation earlier in the summer that he'd be on the move. Carolina's 2010 second-round (37th overall) draft pick has registered point totals of 37, 37 and 31 over the last three seasons, respectively, but he's posted an egregious minus-109 rating over seven years of service time in Raleigh. Sure, the Hurricanes allowed the fewest shots per game (28.9) last year, though it remains to be seen how much longer the Eastern Conference club will be able to tolerate Faulk's defensive miscues.
