2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lyon had an 11-14-5 record with a 2.69 GAA and a .913 save percentage in 32 games with AHL Lehigh Valley last year, but that didn't translate to NHL success. With Carter Hart and Brian Elliott both under contract this year, Lyon's path to playing time will be crowded. Instead, the 28-year-old goalie is almost certainly destined for the Flyers' taxi squad, where he'll be an emergency depth option. Fantasy managers can pass on the Minnesota native in 2020-21, and it's unlikely at this point he'll ever be more than a backup in the NHL. Read Past Outlooks

Lyon will patrol the crease during Saturday's road game versus the Capitals, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Lyon was sharp in his last start Monday against the Penguins, stopping 35 of 37 shots en route to a blowout 7-2 victory. The 28-year-old netminder will attempt to secure his second win of the season in a road matchup with a Washington team that's won four of its last six games.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
With numerous goaltending injuries during the second half of 2017-18, Lyon received his chance to start in the NHL. He began slowly, but in his last five appearances, he went 2-0-1 with a .912 save percentage. Overall, he finished 4-2-1 with a .905 save percentage and 2.75 GAA in 11 NHL games. The Flyers liked enough of what they saw to sign him to a two-year deal this summer. Petr Mrazek has departed for the Hurricanes, but Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth remain in the Flyers organization, so in all likelihood, Lyon will begin the season in the AHL, where he went 22-13-2 with a .924 save percentage and 2.50 GAA last year. If called upon, Lyon has to the potential to be a serviceable NHL goaltender in 2018-19 and could be used as a streaming option in fantasy circuits.
