  • Blackhawks' Cody Franson: Signs one-year contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/4/17) Franson agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Chicago on Wednesday.

    Franson earned his way into this contract while on a professional tryout agreement during training camp. The towering blueliner logged 68 games for the Sabres last season in which he averaged 18:29 of ice time and compiled three goals, 16 assists and 87 hits. The 30-year-old will likely have to stave off Michal Rozsival (concussion) for ice time throughout the season, but should at least factor into coach Joel Quenneville's game-day roster decisions.

    Blackhawks' Cody Franson: Inks PTO with Chicago

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/7/17) Franson will join the Blackhawks for training camp on a professional tryout agreement, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Franson could be a great veteran addition to a Chicago blue-line corps that is extremely green heading into the 2017-18 campaign, but he won't be a viable fantasy option even if he's able to land a deal with the Blackhawks. The 30-year-old rearguard has failed to crack the 20-point mark in each of the last two seasons, so he doesn't present the offensive upside necessary to be a desirable fantasy asset at this stage in his career.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Not protected in Vegas draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/19/17) Franson has been exposed to the Vegas expansion draft, theScore reports.

    The soon-to-be 30-year-old has failed to turn many heads in his first two seasons in Buffalo, posting totals of 17 and 19 points. Franson does, however, have four seasons of between 29 and 36 points under his belt (Nashville and Toronto), so it's conceivable that he could get back to the 30-plus point plateau -- which is no small feat for a defenseman -- in the right situation. It's also worth noting that he'll be an unrestricted free agent come July, so if Vegas wishes to select him in the expansion draft on June 21, it'll get three days of exclusive negotiating rights to try to bang out a deal before his UFA status kicks in.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Will play Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/17) Franson (upper body) will rejoin the lineup Monday against the Maple Leafs, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.

    Franson has finally returned to full health after missing each of the last six contests due to the upper-body issue. The blueliner does present some appeal in daily formats, but doesn't produce enough to be worthy of ownership in the vast majority of season-long formats. He should slot back into the pairings Monday, though it's unclear who will come out in his place at this point.

    Sabres' Cody Franson: Ruled out Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/17) Franson (upper body) will not dress for Sunday's game against the Islanders.

    Franson returned to practice Thursday, but will miss at least one more contest due to the upper body issue. The blueliner provides a bit of offense for the club (19 points in 65 games), but not enough to be worthy of fantasy ownership in the vast majority of leagues. His next chance to rejoin the action comes Monday, but the team should update his status again when he's healthy and ready to play.
