A resurgent Lecavalier now has four goals and five points in his past six games. Considering he's only averaging 13:34 of ice time on the Flyers' fourth line, it's impressive Lecavalier is still on track to land around the 20-goal mark. If he can continue this solid play, he's worth a look in some very deep leagues.

The 34-year-old now has four goals and eight points in 19 games, to go with a minus-4 rating.

He's looked better of late, though, and is one to monitor, because if he catches fire, he could be worth adding in some deeper formats.
