It's been a tough season for Wayne Simmonds, but at least his fantasy value is trending upwards.

Simmonds managed just a goal and five points through October, but as he stands now through 36 games he has nine goals and 19 points. Not nearly the type of production the 27-year-old was expected to give to the Flyers however for fantasy owners, his frustrations have been a boon elsewhere. Simmonds ranks second in the league with 82 PIMs and boasts 84 hits with 17 blocks to boot, which is admittedly is not why one drafted the physical winger. There is light in the tunnel for Simmonds' scoring metrics, he's shooting 11.5% which is below the 12.8% career mark and 13.9 mark while with the Flyers. There's nowhere to go but up, as they say.
