Antoine Roussel has found the back of the net in Dallas' last two games.
Roussel is up to five goals and 11 points in 31 contests this season. In standard fantasy leagues, his primary appeal is as a source of penalty minutes, but it doesn't hurt that he chips in offensively. He's finished in the 25-29 point range in each of his previous four seasons and he should end up around there again in 2017-18. Sun, Dec 24, 2017 05:24:00 AM
