Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Leading league in plus/minus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves had nine goals and 26 points with a league-leading plus-40 rating in 69 games prior to the league halting play in the middle of March.

While he was actually going through a mini-slump through a handful of games just prior to the NHL postponing the season, Graves has been just terrific. His plus-40 rating is plus-10 better than every other player in the league except Artemi Panarin, and although he only played 26 games last season, Graves has also quadrupled his point output from his rookie season. In just 95 career NHL games, Graves has 12 goals, 31 points, a plus-44 rating, 47 PIM and 160 shots on net.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Buries equalizer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves scored a goal on three shots, dished two hits and blocked two shots in Saturday's 2-1 shootout win over the Kings.

Graves is up to 22 points, a plus-39 rating, 106 shots, 117 blocks and 86 hits through 53 games. Currently pairing with rookie phenom Cale Makar, Graves looks like a key cog on the Avalanche's blue line for years to come.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Adds helper in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves posted an assist, a plus-4 rating and four blocked shots in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Sabres.

Graves continues to be an intriguing fantasy asset for deeper leagues that flies under the radar on a team with superstar forwards and rookie phenom Cale Makar on his pairing. The 24-year-old Graves has accrued a modest 20 points, leads the league with a plus-36 rating and has recorded 110 blocked shots over 50 games.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Notches two points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves scored a goal on five shots, dished an assist, tossed three hits, blocked three shots and went plus-2 in Monday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings.

Graves made his mark in a number of ways all over the ice Monday. His assist came on Matt Nieto's game-winning goal, and he added an insurance tally 8:47 after that. Graves is now at 19 points, 97 shots, 96 blocks and a plus-34 rating in 48 games. He's picked up the pace with four points in his last four outings after a nine-game drought.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Tickles twine Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves scored a goal on four shots in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.

Graves now has points in consecutive outings after a nine-game drought. The 24-year-old defenseman is up to 17 points, a plus-31 rating and 89 shots on goal in 46 games. He's been plenty physical as well, with 90 blocked shots, 76 hits and 35 PIM this season. Bottom line -- he's a solid contributor on the blue line despite seeing virtually no power-play time.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Ends nine-game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves recorded an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars.

In his last 10 games, Graves has 25 shots on goal, 21 hits and 15 blocked shots to go with the assist he earned Tuesday. He's at 16 points, 90 blocks, 85 shots, 76 hits and a plus-30 rating in 45 contests this season. He's almost always to contribute something to fantasy owners, but his 13 points over 28 appearances in November and December might be a little too good to sustain for the 24-year-old.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Still contributing without scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves has zero points but a plus-5 rating and 24 shots on net in his last nine games.

The 24-year-old recorded a multi-point game on Dec. 21 but he hasn't tallied another point since then. He's been involved plenty, though, as he's averaged almost three shots on net per game in the past nine matchups and posted seven in one contest on Dec. 28. Graves has six goals, 15 points, a plus-29 rating, 84 shots and 35 PIM in 44 games this season.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Still producing despite no points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves has recorded zero points, a plus-5 rating and 18 shots on net in his last five games.

This is Graves' first five-game pointless streak since just before Thanksgiving. Despite his recent scoring struggles, Graves still has four goals and nine points in the last 18 games, but his value goes beyond those numbers, as he also has a plus-20 rating and 15 PIM during that stretch. Graves has six goals, 15 points, a plus-29 rating, 33 PIM, 78 shots, 82 blocks and 68 hits in 40 games this season.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Notches pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves scored a goal and supplied an assist in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

Graves opened the scoring six minutes into the first period before setting up Matt Calvert's goal to restore the lead early in the second. The defenseman filled the stat sheet with four hits, three shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating. Graves has been a pleasant surprise with 15 points, 60 shots, 75 blocked shots, 55 hits and a plus-24 rating through 35 games this season. With solid contributions across virtually all categories excluding power-play production, the 24-year-old defenseman is certainly worthy of a look from fantasy owners.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Streaking through 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves has three goals and seven points with a plus-13 rating in the last 12 games, but he only has one assist in the past five contests.

Prior to Thanksgiving week, Graves had a six-game pointless streak. While he's been very productive since then, he's gone mostly dry in the last handful of contests. That's been a theme for Graves this season, as he's had some tremendous hot and cold streaks already. Overall, though, owners have to be pleased with his five scores, 13 points and plus-22 rating in 34 games this season.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Contributes pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves netted a goal and dished an assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Flames.

Graves opened the scoring in the first period and helped restore the Avalanche's lead at 2-1 with an assist to Valeri Nichushkin in the second. Graves added three shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in the contest. The 24-year-old defenseman could be poised for a breakout with three goals, three assists and a plus-13 rating over his last seven contests. For the year, the blueliner has 12 points, a plus-22 rating, 66 blocked shots and 44 hits through 29 games.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Scores in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves scored his fourth goal of the campaign in a 3-2 win over Montreal on Thursday.

In addition to his goal, Graves blocked five shots to lead the Avalanche in that category. The 24-year-old, top-pairing defenseman has collected 10 points in 27 games, and Graves also owns a team-best, plus-18 rating.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Has modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves registered an assist, four blocked shots, four PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Graves is finding a groove in recent games, with a goal, two helpers and a plus-7 rating in his last three appearances. The 24-year-old is up to nine points in 25 outings overall this season. He's added 56 blocked shots, 36 shots on goal, 35 hits and 27 PIM. The six-foot-five blueliner may be worth an add in deeper fantasy formats while he's running hot.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Plucks apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves produced an assist, three shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Oilers.

Graves was also at the center of some tension in the contest for his second-period hit on Alex Chiasson, which forced the Oilers' winger to exit the game. Graves was not penalized on the play. The assist was the first point since Nov. 9 for the defenseman, who has seven points in 23 appearances. Graves has added a plus-11 rating, 34 hits and 50 blocked shots this season.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Heating up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves has one goal and four points with a plus-6 rating and 14 PIM in the last six games.

The 24-year-old has six points this season and half of them came against the Predators on Nov. 7. That point production in the last two weeks isn't likely going to be reflective in his stat line going forward, but Graves has been steady in the plus/minus all season. He also has 10 PIM in the last three games. Overall, he has two goals and six points with a plus-11 rating and 18 PIM in 20 games.

Avalanche's Ryan Graves: Adds assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Graves notched an assist, five blocked shots, two hits and two PIM in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

Graves produced the primary assist on Cale Makar's first of two goals in the contest. Graves' helper came a game after a three-point effort for the 24-year-old. He's now at six points, 38 blocked shots and 24 hits in 16 appearances this year after recording only five points in 26 outings in 2018-19. As a more defensive-minded player, Graves isn't likely to continue chipping in on the scoresheet with much consistency.
