  • Flyers' Matt Read: Returns to Flyers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/19/17) Read was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

    Read had played the past six seasons in Philly, which is why it was something of a surprise that the two-time 20-goal scorer began 2017-18 in the minors. After five minor-league games, in which he scored a single goal, Read finds himself back with the Flyers, though at this point it's unclear whether or not he'll suit up for Thursday's contest with Nashville. Regardless, Read doesn't figure to make much of a fantasy impact even when he's in the lineup.

    Flyers' Matt Read: Now toiling on waiver wire

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/2/17) Read was waived by the Flyers on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

    The writing was on the wall that Read would be deemed expendable. Philly seems keen on offering larger roles to Taylor Leier and Scott Laughton after watching the former dip in offensive production for the third straight year -- he was all the way down to 19 points in 63 games in 2016-17, and a season-ending upper-body injury compounded his troubles. There's little reason to get too caught up with Read from a fantasy perspective.

    Flyers' Matt Read: Roster spot in jeopardy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/30/17) Read, who's coming off a season-ending upper-body injury, is at risk of losing his roster spot with the Flyers, the Courier-Post reports.

    Read's cap hit of $3.625 million is too large a figure for a depreciating asset coming off a career-worst 19-point season -- his third straight year of declining offensive production. The Flyers are expected to carve out a more substantial role for 23-year-old Scott Laughton, which only adds pressure on Read to reverse the tide in 2017-18. For what it's worth, the Ontario native sounds up for the challenge. "You've got to show up and earn your ice time," he said. "That's kind of why I'm here early, is to be in the best shape I can be and on the ice as much as I can, and when it comes to Day 1, I'll be the best I can be and hopefully given the best opportunity to succeed."

    Flyers' Matt Read: Done for regular season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/31/17) Read will miss 6-to-8 weeks with an upper-body injury.

    Read, who has logged 10 goals and 19 points in 63 games to date, will thus miss the rest of the regular season, with his injury representing a hit to the Flyers' chances of rallying enough to sneak into a wild-card playoff spot with a late charge.

    Flyers' Matt Read: Scores in second straight outing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Read scored an unassisted goal during Thursday's win over Minnesota.

    Read has seen his fantasy stock decline consistently over the past three years, and he's registered just 10 goals and 18 points this season. Those numbers don't tip the virtual scales enough to warrant ownership in the majority of seasonal settings. It's also worth noting that the 30-year-old winger will enter the final year of his contract with Philadelphia next season, which will likely prove to be a make-or-break campaign for him.
