  • Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Gathers two helpers in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/18) Filppula contributed two assists in Sunday's 7-4 road win over the Rangers.

    The veteran is deployed in all situations, but he's currently hovering under the 17-minute mark for a Flyers team that's welcomed Nolan Patrick -- the second overall pick in the 2017 draft -- into the top six. Filppula's definitely not a high-volume shooter, hoisting only 55 shots through 59 games, but perhaps he should be putting more rubber on net based on a conversion rate of 18.2 percent.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Offensive woes continue

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/18) Filppula has recorded just three goals, seven assists and 25 shots through 29 games since his last multi-point outing Dec. 4.

    Among all Philadelphia forwards with at least 500 minutes of five-on-five ice time this season, Filppula's 1.0 points per hour rank last. Additionally, he skated with Jori Lehtera and Dale Weise on the fourth line against Vegas on Sunday, which isn't an encouraging even-strength assignment. Even with a role on the No. 2 power-play unit, Filppula's not a recommended fantasy option in the majority of settings.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Scores in win over Bolts

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/17) Filppula scored a goal, recorded three shots and received a minor penalty during Friday's 5-3 win over Tampa Bay.

    The tally snapped a six-game pointless stretch and has Filppula at just nine goals and eight assists through 38 games. The production is especially discouraging because the veteran Finn has logged 2:17 of power-play time per game and been given a shot in a top-six role for stretches throughout the season. It's probably safe to continue avoiding Filppula in most fantasy settings.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Marks scoresheet twice in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/17) Filppula collected a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating through 20:58 of ice time during Monday's 5-2 win over Calgary.

    This was Filppula's first goal in 11 games, and he recorded just two assists and 10 shots during that scoring drought. The veteran center has seven tallies and six helpers through 27 contests for the season, which is underwhelming production considering he's averaging 17:04 of ice time (2:21 with the man advantage) per game. It's probably best to leave Filppula to the waiver wire in most fantasy settings.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Quiet through past 11 contests

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/13/17) Filppula has recorded just two goals, two assists and 11 shots through his past 11 games.

    The veteran averaged a respectable 17:09 of ice time (2:17 on the man advantage) during that 11-game stretch, so minutes and role aren't the culprits. Additionally, his 0.86 points per 60 minutes rank eighth lowest among all forwards with at least 200 minutes at five-on-five this season. It's probably best to keep expectations in check for Filppula until he proves he can tilt the offensive scales again at even strength.
