Dylan Larkin earned an assist in a 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado on Sunday.

Larkin already has more helpers (16) after 21 games than he had in 80 matches last season when he picked up a total of 15. He leads the Red Wings in scoring with 20 points this campaign. Larkin also has two goals and three assists during a three-game point streak. He should easily establish new highs in helpers and points in 2017-18 if he continues at his current pace.

Justin Abdelkader potted his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to Colorado.

Abdelkader opened the scoring in the contest. He has been quietly productive this season with 13 points in 20 games. Abdelkader has also provided two goals and five helpers in his last six appearances.

Danny DeKeyser returned from a 17-game absence Sunday because of a fractured ankle.

DeKeyser had two penalty minutes, one hit, one block and a minus-1 rating in 16:23 of ice time in a 4-3 OT loss to Colorado. He has much more value to the Red Wings as a top-four blueliner than he does in fantasy hockey. DeKeyser is better to leave on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

Jimmy Howard allowed four goals on 37 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Avalanche on Sunday.

Howard played well but allowed the tying goal in the final minute of regulation. Nathan MacKinnon's winner in overtime denied Howard his third straight win. Howard still has not lost in regulation since Nov. 2, owning a record of 8-5-2 this season with a 2.34 goals against average and .928 save percentage.

Andreas Athanasiou found the back of the net in Detroit's 4-3 overtime loss against Colorado on Sunday night.

Athanasiou has four points in his last four games. The 23-year-old is starting to turn his raw talent into production, with five goals and seven points in 11 games so far this season.

The Detroit Red Wings will finally be able to welcome Danny DeKeyser (ankle) back to the lineup Sunday and he is itching to play.

"I think it’s been 16, 17 games, something like that. So, I’m excited to get back in there," DeKeyser said. "Foot’s been feeling really good. I got some good skates in, this week, so I’m just ready to get out there, tomorrow. It was an ankle injury that kind of, at first, looked like more like a sprain. But the more it went on, they took a second look at it and there was a small fracture in there." DeKeyser has only been able to appear in three games this season, averaging 23 minutes of action in his two full healthy games. He's a stabilizing all-around rearguard but shouldn't be added in fantasy leagues.

Jimmy Howard will get the start in goal Sunday against the Colorado Avalanche.

Howard has been strong again this season with an 8-5-1 mark to go with a 2.23 GAA and a .931 save percentage. He is a good play in DFS.
Nov 19 - 9:57 AM

Brian Lashoff has been sent to the minors.

Lashoff was called up because Trevor Daley was dealing with an upper-body injury, so his demotion might indicate that Daley is ready to return. Lashoff was in the Red Wings' lineup on Friday, but logged just 4:02 minutes of ice time.
Nov 18 - 1:41 PM

Jimmy Howard stopped 19 of 20 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over Buffalo.

Howard has won back-to-back games over Calgary and Buffalo and he's also come away with victories in three of his last four outings. In each of those four games, he's given up two goals or less. Howard has an 8-5-1 record with a 2.23 goals-against-average and a .931 save percentage this season.
Nov 18 - 10:26 AM

Tomas Tatar scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

His goal gave the Wings a 2-1 lead at the 8:36 mark of the third frame and they never looked. Tatar has five goals and three assists in 20 games this season. He's only found the back of the net twice in his last 12 contests. Tatar has no value in standard fantasy leagues.
Nov 18 - 10:24 AM

Trevor Daley (upper body) was able to play on Friday.

Daley sustained the injury on Wednesday, but he didn't end up missing a full game. He had a plus-one rating in 20:37 minutes of ice time Friday night.
Nov 18 - 1:49 AM

Dylan Larkin found the back of the net in Friday's 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Larkin's fourth goal of the season gave the Wings a 3-1 lead at the 15:54 mark of the third period. He finished the game with six shots on goal and a blocked shot in 21:57 of ice time. Larkin has recorded at least one point in four of his team's last five games. He has 19 points in 20 games in 2017-18. He's definitely worth owning in most fantasy formats. Luke Glendening and Tomas Tatar also scored for the Red Wings in the win.
Nov 17 - 10:14 PM

David Booth will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against Buffalo.

Booth has just one assist and four penalty minutes in five games with the Wings this season. He's been scratched in 11 of Detroit's last 12 contests. Martin Frk is out with an injury, while Luke Witkowski is serving the first game of his 10-game suspension.
Nov 17 - 7:33 PM

Brian Lashoff has been called up by the Detroit Red Wings.

Lashoff gives the Red Wings an extra defenseman in case Trevor Daley (upper body) can't play on Friday. Lashoff has a goal and an assist in 13 AHL games this season.
Nov 17 - 5:33 PM

Jimmy Howard will probably start Friday night.

Howard was the first goaltender off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually an indication of who the starter will be. He has a 2.32 GAA and .930 save percentage in 14 games in 2017-18.
