Eller recorded a goal during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

With his second goal in as many games, Eller has established a new career-high of 31 points in 60 games. The 28-year-old Dane has had a solid season for the Capitals, who rewarded him with a five-year contract extension earlier in February. Eller is worth a look in deeper leagues but will need a boost in offensive opportunity to be worth rostering in most formats.

Eller signed a five-year, $17.5 million contract extension with the Capitals on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Eller is enjoying a career year with the Capitals, which counts as his second in the nation's capital. He's up to 11 goals and 17 assists, with five power-play points tying a personal best through 53 games. According to CapFriendly, this deal is similar to the one procured by Eller's former Montreal teammate David Desharnais in March of 2013.

Eller scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Friday's 4-2 win over Columbus.

EDGE Analysis

The two-point night improves Eller to six goals and five assists through his past 13 games, which is a nice uptick in production. His fantasy ceiling is low because of his supporting role behind Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov up the middle. However, Eller could be worth a look in deeper settings and daily contests while scoring frequently.

Eller picked up two assists with two shots, a blocked shot and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

He's now got eight points (five goals, three assists) over his last nine games, although Eller played only 10:27 on Wednesday -- his lowest ice time of the season. The 28-year-old is now only five points shy of his previous career high of 30, and barring a disastrous second half he should easily be able to set a new personal best.

Eller scored the game-winning goal Tuesday against the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

Eller has scored in back-to-back games and now has seven goals and 19 points in 42 games on the season. The third-line center is quite streaky, but he's been hot recently and is seeing power-play time, so he could be worth a look in a deeper format. Eller has some decent offensive talent, but be prepared for inconsistency and less than spectacular overall totals.

Eller contributed a goal, an assist and five shots on net in Thursday's 4-3 shootout win over Boston.

EDGE Analysis

Eller skated a season-high 18:36 in this one, earning that ice time with a stellar performance. Unfortunately for the Danish center, outings like this have been few and far between. Over his past 12 appearances, Eller has two multi-point showings and 10 games in which he's failed to mark the scoresheet.

Eller picked up two helpers in Tuesday's win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

With linemate Andre Burakovsky back to full health, Eller's fantasy value has gone up. This was still just his first point in eight contests, but Eller is known for being streaky and could go off at any moment. His 15 points in 34 games are nothing special, but he's playing on the power play and is seen as a reliable depth scorer in Washington. He's having one of his best offensive seasons yet, so take advantage.

Eller was on the ice Wednesday after missing the team's most recent practice due to visa issues, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The former Hab was forced to remain in Toronto while the Caps practiced Monday, though there was little doubt that Eller's playing status for Thursday's game against the Kings was in jeopardy. Aside from the 2012-13 season that saw him score 30 points in 46 games, Eller is scoring at a higher rate than at any other point in his career this campaign, having logged 12 points in 24 contests.

Eller (personal) stayed behind in Toronto to iron out visa issues, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Capitals off until Nov. 30, there's no reason to think the immigration issues will keep Eller out of the lineup, but the 28-year-old Dane is currently not with the team while the paperwork gets ironed out.

Eller ended a four-game point drought with the only goal in Monday's 4-1 loss to Calgary.

EDGE Analysis

Eller's previous point streak is a memory now, as he'd been without a point in each of the Capitals' past four games and hadn't scored a goal since getting two on Nov. 2 against the Islanders. He seems to have reverted to form now and should only be used regularly in deeper leagues.
