News: Backes netted a power-play goal in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Jets. Impact: Backes now has six goals with five coming with the man advantage. With 10 points through 20 games, he's on pace for about 40 by the end of the season -- far lower than the production we're used to from him, but still worthy of fantasy consideration thanks to his plus-minus and PIM.(RotoWire, )

News: Backes registered his first even-strength goal of the season and an assist in Saturday's win over the Capitals. Impact: Backes is up to five goals and nine points in 16 games this season, to go with a minus-2 rating. While that production is respectable, it really doesn't compare to the ridiculous offensive contributions the team has received from the Jaden Schwartz-Jori Lehtera-Vladimir Tarasenko line. With the way that trio is playing, nobody has really noticed that Backes is on pace to post his lowest full-season point total in four years. Backes is still a very reliable fantasy option, however, as he should post another season in the 25-goal range.(RotoWire, )

News: Backes scored his fourth goal Tuesday in a 6-1 win over Buffalo. He added three shots and four hits. Impact: Backes has seven points in 14 games and all four of his goals have come on the power play. He was slowed by a concussion a couple of weeks ago, but now that he is healthy he should be getting back to form.(RotoWire, )
