2017-18 Fantasy Hockey Outlook

The good news is that Foligno has improved every season, but the bad news is that heís done so only incrementally. Heís scored 23 points in each of the past two seasons, but the 25-year-old has offered very few indications that heís capable of more. He does, however, play a ...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

After three straight years of trying to prove that he was more than just a fourth-line grinder, Foligno broke through this past season by setting career highs with 10 goals and 23 points while continuing to display his customary physical edge (193 hits). Heís just 24 years old, so his best seasons are still ahead of him, and if he can score 20 goals without sacrificing the physical edge he plays with, he could be a very valuable fantasy player. For now, he has to prove that there's still room for growth in his game, and itís quite possible we'll see that with the rest of the Sabresí young players coming into their own.

2015-16

Entering the final season of his two-year deal, Foligno is still looking for a break out after scoring eight goals and 20 points in 2014-15, making it the third straight year that he's improved his point totals by just one point. Foligno played in 57 games due to a hand injury and never seemed to find his niche on the team, frequently spending time as a healthy scratch. He's expected to play a third-line checking role this season, but can't afford to be inconsistent or he'll risk losing his spot in the lineup.

2014-15

Despite a disappointing season that saw Foligno net only 19 points in 74 games, the Sabres extended the promising young forward with a two-year contract this summer. Given his lack of offensive output, the move speaks to Folignoís potential and the faith the Sabres have in him. The Sabres are a much better team when Foligno can contribute, as he is arguably the teamís most physical forward. In 135 career NHL games, Foligno has 50 points and 132 penalty minutes. Much of Folignoís production will depend on where he plays in the lineup, but thereís no denying the son of famed Sabre Mike Foligno has the ability to become a complete player.

2013-14

More was expected of Foligno than what he delivered last season, just 18 points in 47 games following a promising late-season debut in 2011-12. There remains a ton of upside here, and the intangibles he brings should keep him in the lineup every night. Heís also willing to drop the gloves, and shows some decent value in PIM leagues, posting 41 last season and an additional 38 in 33 AHL games during the lockout. Donít expect Foligno to be an offensive juggernaut, but itís not out of the question for him to approach the 40-point mark, especially if he once again finds chemistry with line mates Drew Stafford and Tyler Ennis.

2012-13

Foligno became a fan favorite in Buffalo after being recalled from AHL Rochester in March, recording 13 points in 14 games. He found instant chemistry on a line with Tyler Ennis and Drew Stafford, and he'll likely get an opportunity to produce right out of the gate in 2012-13. He won't continue to produce at a point-per-game clip, but has established himself as a player of interest, especially in keeper leagues.

2011-12

Foligno, the son of ex-Sabre Mike Foligno, enjoyed the best juniors season of his young career in 2010-11. He signed an entry-level deal with the Sabres this offseason and will get his first taste of pro hockey this year with Buffalo's new AHL affiliate in Rochester, where a lot of eyes will be on him.
