RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brandon Manning.
The 23-year-old Manning had a short stint in the NHL last season, appearing in just six games for the Flyers. He didn't have a stellar year in the AHL, posting 19 points and a minus-six in 46 games, but many consider him to be one of the Flyers' better defensive prospects. Given the team's defensive issues, it's realistic to expect him to see more NHL time this year. Still, even if he stays full-time in the NHL, expect modest fantasy production while adjusts to the stiffer competition.
After solid play in the AHL with Adriondack, Manning was given a chance to play several games with the Flyers as injuries opened spots on the roster; he did not post a point in four NHL contests. He’ll likely fill in again for injured Flyers as needed, but won’t see enough ice time to have a big enough impact in most fantasy leagues.
