Rangers' Marc Staal: Back from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal recorded two hits and a plus-1 rating in Friday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

The veteran blueliner was back in his usual spot on the Rangers' third pairing after missing one game due to illness. When he's on the ice, Staal offers a smidge of fantasy value in formats that score multiple categories, managing two goals and eight points through 39 games with 16 PIM, 34 shots, 58 hits and 60 blocked shots with a plus-6 rating.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Appears good to go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (illness) is taking part in line rushes ahead of Friday's game against the Blue Jackets, indicating he will play in the contest, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Staal will avoid missing more than one contest because of the illness, though it's worth noting that he skated Tuesday prior to the game, as well. Barring a late change, look for Staal to slot in alongside Brendan Smith on the second pairing.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (illness) will be out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Wild, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

The 32-year-old appears to be dealing with flu-like symptoms as the cause for his omission. In his stead, Brendan Smith will draw into the lineup on defense for the first time this season. Staal's absence likely won't affect much from a fantasy perspective, considering he's accumulated just eight points in 38 games.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (upper body) will play in Monday's clash with the Islanders, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Staal missed Saturday's game with the upper-body issue, but as evidenced by this news, he's feeling well enough to play. The veteran's return to the lineup likely won't change anything from a fantasy perspective, as he has just six points in 27 games this campaign. Libor Hajek will serve as a healthy scratch among the defensemen.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Status uncertain for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (upper body) is a game-time decision for Monday's game versus the Islanders, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Staal practiced with the team during Monday's morning skate, but he worked as an extra, so he seems to be trending in the wrong direction. We'll be able to confirm his status once the Rangers take warmups at 6:30 p.m. ET. Fantasy owners won't need to wait around for the verdict, however, as the veteran blueliner has just six points over 27 games.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Can't go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (upper body) will miss Saturday's game in St. Louis.

Staal's absence won't change much from a fantasy standpoint, as the veteran blueliner only has six points in 27 games in 2019-20. It remains to be seen how much time Staal will miss because of the injury, but his next chance to play will be Monday's home game versus the Islanders.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Lights lamp in crazy loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal scored a goal, dished three hits, blocked two shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Oilers.

Staal had the third goal for the Rangers. He's at just five points in 23 games this year. The defenseman has added 23 shots on goal, 29 hits and 39 blocked shots, but those numbers are unlikely to interest fantasy owners.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's matchup against the Ducks, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Staal was considered a game-time decision, but he's good to go. The veteran blueliner isn't fantasy owners' concern since he's posted just three points over 15 games while logging a 43.9 Corsi For percentage. Staal will link up with Anthony DeAngelo on the second pairing.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Questionable for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal is considered a game-time call for Saturday's contest versus the Ducks, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Staal may still be suffering from the effects of an infection in his ankle, though the team hasn't disclosed the reason behind his questionable status. If he can't suit up, Brendan Smith will draw in as a defenseman in Staal's place.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Will play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (infection) will be back in the lineup against Montreal on Friday, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Staal will return to the lineup after a 13-game stint on the shelf. The blueliner is far from an offensive powerhouse considering he hasn't reached the 20-point mark since 2014-15. The 32-year-old won't offer much in terms of fantasy value outside of defensive stats.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (infection) was present for morning skate but won't play Monday against the Golden Knights, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Staal hasn't played since Nov. 7 after undergoing surgery for an ankle infection, but his return appears imminent. The veteran blueliner should be off fantasy radars after recording two points and firing 11 shots on net through 11 games.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Out two weeks minimum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal went under the knife for an ankle infection Saturday and will be out at least two weeks.

It's been a rocky start for Staal, as he endured the first healthy scratch of his career and recorded just two points in 11 games. He'll now target a return Nov. 23 against the Canadiens. The Rangers may need to recall an additional blueliner if Brady Skjei (undisclosed) can't play Sunday against the Panthers; otherwise, Brendan Smith can bump back to the blue line as long as the forward corps is healthy.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Healthy scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers healthy scratched Staal for Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

This is the first time Staal has been a healthy scratch since being selected in the first round of of the 2005 NHL Draft. Staal has struggled defensively thus far with a 35.0 Corsi For percentage, and he hasn't posted a point since Opening Night.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Scores first goal of NY's season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal scored a goal in his 21:30 of ice time in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Jets.

Few pegged Staal as the man to score the first goal of the Rangers' season after he lit the lamp just three times in 79 games last year, but the veteran blueliner did just that on a gorgeous wraparound. Staal can still be ignored in most formats due to his lack of offense, but he should continue to munch minutes on New York's blue line.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Returning Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Friday's game against the Blues, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

While Staal's return should bolster the Rangers' back end, his lack of offensive prowess keeps him from being a fantasy mainstay in most formats. The veteran defenseman owns just 13 points through 73 contests this season. While it's better than what he's compiled in the past two seasons, Staal should be left on the waiver wire in most formats.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (lower body) won't play Wednesday against the Bruins.

Staal is still considered day-to-day with his lower-body injury, which suggests he could be ready to return as soon as Friday against St. Louis. Either way, there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his availability, as he's only picked up 13 points in 73 games this campaign.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Won't go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (lower body) will be a spectator for Monday's game versus Pittsburgh.

According to head coach David Quinn, the veteran defenseman is day-to-day, but given where the Rangers are in the standings, it would come as little surprise if they decided to shut Staal down for the remainder of the season. The 31-year-old's situation is definitely something to keep a close on over the next few days.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Dealing with injury again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dan Quinn said Staal (lower body) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Penguins.

Staal was a game-time decision due to a lower-body injury for Saturday's game versus the Maple Leafs, but he ultimately slotted into the lineup. He may have been hurting again after that contest, leading to his unclear status for next game. Fantasy owners shouldn't be bothered by his condition considering Staal has just 13 points in 73 games.

Rangers' Marc Staal: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Staal (lower body) will play in Saturday's game versus the Maple Leafs.

Staal's status has been hazy for the last three days off, but he'll return to the Rangers' top defensive pairing. The 31-year-old shouldn't be on fantasy owners' radars with just 13 points in 72 games, but he's used heavily defensively with 61.0 percent of his shifts starting in the Rangers' zone.
