  • Kings' Derek Forbort: Ends first half on bad stretch

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/19) Forbort failed to tally a point over the last seven games of the first half and posted a minus-4 rating in the final four contests.

    Forbort isn't known for his offensive prowess, so him notching just nine points through 49 games this season shouldn't come as much of a surprise. He has posted ratings of plus-18 and plus-8 in the last two seasons, but playing for a struggling Kings squad in 2018-19 has led him to a minus-4 showing through the end of the first half. While he's not a highly coveted option for fantasy purposes anyway, Forbort has fallen further off the radar.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: Rare scoring outburst

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/18) Forbort scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Golden Knights.

    The goal was his first of the season. Forbort has scored exactly 18 points in each of the last two seasons, and with only seven points in 29 games so far, the 26-year-old isn't radically changing his outlook as an offensive afterthought.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: Ready to rock Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/18) Forbort (undisclosed) will play in Thursday's game against the Devils, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    This was the expected outcome for Forbort, who was evaluated by the medical staff for an undisclosed injury. Even though the blueliner will rejoin the lineup Thursday, he doesn't factor in much from a fantasy perspective, owning just five assists and no goals through 27 games this season.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: Will meet with medical staff

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/18) Forbort will be evaluated for an undisclosed injury Thursday, but coach Willie Desjardins expects the blueliner to play against New Jersey, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    It wasn't made immediately clear what is bothering Forbort, but even if he doesn't suit up Thursday, it doesn't sound like he will be out long term. The Duluth native is still looking for his first goal of the year and is currently stuck in a five-game pointless streak. If Forbort can't give it a go, Paul LaDue should slot into the lineup.

    Kings' Derek Forbort: First multi-point game of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/26/18) Forbort had two assists during Sunday's 5-2 win over Edmonton.

    Forbort picked up two assists in Sunday's big win over the Oilers. It was the first multi-point game of the year for Forbort in his 22 appearances. The two assists upped the defender's season total to five, as he's not much of an option for fantasy owners.
