Martin tallied three assists in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Martin was gifted two new linemates on the fourth line -- Tyler Bozak and Mitch Marner -- and he merely had to keep his stick on the ice to pick up points. This will be fleeting, so don't snap him off the wire. He'll be back to his usual linemates soon enough.

Martin (undisclosed) will return to action versus San Jose on Monday, Jonas Siegel of The Athletic Toronto reports.

EDGE Analysis

Martin slides back into the game-day lineup after a brief one-game absence due to his undisclosed malady. Prior to getting hurt, the winger tallied a goal and an assist in his previous pair of outings. With the Ontario native cleared for action, Josh Leivo will once again find himself watching from the press box.

Martin is seeing regular action on the Leafs' fourth line and has an assist and nine hits in his first two games.

EDGE Analysis

Martin isn't known for his offence, but he is a hit machine. He has delivered 300 or more hits and averaged over 100 PIM in his last four seasons. There's value in Martin's game in those leagues that still count those categories.

Martin scored his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Martin won't deliver many points, but he has put together a modest two-game point streak (a goal and an assist). He's managed to earn consistent ice time on the fourth line, seeing about 10 or 11 minutes on ice each game. Martin's value is restricted to leagues that count hits -- he still sits second in the NHL with 257.

Martin hasn't registered a point in 13 games, but continues to lay big hits.

EDGE Analysis

Martin played just under nine minutes and laid five hits. He has four, five-hit games in his last six. And Martin sits second in the NHL with 232 hits. But that has little to no fantasy value in most leagues.

Martin (illness) returned to practice Tuesday, TSN's Mark Masters reports.

EDGE Analysis

All signs point to Martin being available for Wednesday's matchup with Minnesota, but the Maple Leafs should provide another update on his status if anything changes. The 27-year-old grinder has only tallied four points in 24 games this season, severely limiting his fantasy value in leagues that don't reward his hits (99) and PIM (51).

Martin (illness) missed practice Monday, Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Leafs don't play until Wednesday, so there's plenty of time to return, so owners should keep their eyes peeled. The winger only plays 9:36 minutes per game, and has only notched 4 points in 24 games. Outside of his 99 hits and 51 PIM, he doesn't have much fantasy value.

Martin scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

He's seeing limited ice time, but is racking up the hits -- Martin has 90 hits in 20 games, which put him on the same pace as his last few seasons. But his point production is meagre to say the least, and his three to this point projects to his lowest output since the lockout shortened 2012-13 (11 in 48 games). Martin's fantasy value is restricted to those leagues that still weight meathead categories.
