Beagle finished with an assist during Thursday's 6-2 loss at the hands of the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

The defensive specialist has regressed a bit from a 30-point campaign a year ago, leaving him with little fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.

Beagle recorded an assist and two shots in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Islanders.

EDGE Analysis

The defensive specialist is riding a bit of a hot streak with two goals and four points in his last six games along with a plus-3 rating. The undrafted center is a key cog in the bottom-six given his faceoff and penalty-killing prowess, but his lack of offensive opportunities will continue to limit his fantasy upside to deeper leagues. He should finish somewhere in the 20-25 point range.

Beagle scored the final goal in Saturday's 5-2 comeback win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

The marker gives him two goals and four points in 11 games which keeps him on track to near last season's career-high of 30 points. Though it's not enough to give him fantasy value outside of deeper leagues, the Caps will take all the offense they can get as they try to break out of an early-season slump.

Beagle had an assist in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

The defensive specialist has two points in his last three games on a Caps offense that is suddenly quite anemic. The undrafted Canadian is as close to a hot streak as he is likely to get and set a career high of 30 points last season, but his fantasy value is strictly confined to deeper leagues.

Beagle scored a shorthanded goal Friday in Friday's 4-3 OT win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

Not known for packing an offensive punch, the 32-year-old pivot has a respectable two points in eight games for a fourth-line defensive specialist. While it's a nice bonus for the Capitals, he's likely to regress from his current 33.3% shooting percentage and does not garner enough offensive opportunities to have much fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.

Beagle had an assist in Saturday's 6-1 rout over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

The defensive specialist had a breakout season in 2016-17 and is on his way to besting the 30-points he had a year ago. There's a bit of variance in his linemates on the fourth line as Washington tries to sort out the bottom-six, but the 31-year-old pivot is an invaluable penalty killer and faceoff specialist. Whether he can contribute enough offensively to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of formats is still to be determined.

Beagle is not being protected from the upcoming expansion draft, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran center posted a career-high 30 points with an imposing plus-20 rating in a bottom-six role. To increase his value, a 56.4% face-off percentage puts him in the top-10 of the league in that category. This profound performance combined with a modest $1.75 million price tag could make him an extremely attractive option for Vegas to pick up.

Beagle picked up an assist and plus-1 rating in Tuesday's 4-1 win against the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

Beagle is showing some signs of life with a goal and three points over his past six games. He is also up to a career-best 30 points, but that's still not nearly enough production to warrant fantasy consideration outside of the deepest pools.

Beagle had an assist in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Red Wings.

EDGE Analysis

The 31-year-old center is having a career-year with 11 goals and 22 points in 54 games despite usage primarily as a defensive specialist and getting fourth-line minutes. His lack of offensive opportunity certainly limits his upside, but he's carving out some fantasy value in deeper leagues.

Beagle (illness) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Devils and start alongside Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, J.J. Reagan of CSN Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beagle will take the place of T.J. Oshie (personal) who will miss the final game before the All-Star break to attend to a family matter. However, there's a catch to Beagle's apparent promotion in the lineup: he is coming off a stomach virus and even head coach Barry Trotz admitted he's not sure if Beagle will be in well-enough shape to play the whole game with such offensively talented players. Normally, the defensive stalwart would see an increase in fantasy value -- especially in daily formats -- from such a lineup change, but those looking for a sneaky play may want to temper their expectations. Still, he's worth at least considering in daily formats against a struggling Devils team.
