Marleau scored in the second period of Monday's 4-2 loss to Colorado for his first goal in 2018.

EDGE Analysis

After finishing 2017 as a valuable contributor for the Leafs, Marleau went eight straight games without a point to open 2018. The talent is definitely still there, as he showed in the first three months in the season, but after an ugly January, it's now a genuine question as to whether his 38-year-old body has enough in the tank to keep up the production for a full season. If you can get good value for him, selling high on Marleau might not be a bad idea.

Marleau scored his 15th in a losing effort against Vegas on Sunday, but is now only five goals shy of scoring 20 goals for the 15th time in his career.

EDGE Analysis

It was a rough game for the Leafs, but Marleau extended his point streak to three games with three goals and five points. He led all Leafs forwards with four shots on goal, and pitched in another three hits and a blocked shot. What doomed the Leafs was their poor defensive play, and offense remains their strong suit. Marleau is a valuable depth forward in fantasy despite being almost 40 years old.

Marleau scored two goals -- one on the power play -- and added an assist in Thursday's 7-4 win over Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau took advantage of this favorable matchup, getting two pucks by goaltender Scott Wedgewood before assisting on Connor Brown's game-sealing empty-netter. The long-time Sharks winger is showing that he's still got some gas in the tank with 14 goals in 38 games with Toronto at age 38. That production puts Marleau on pace to light the lamp 30 times over a full season.

Marleau scored his fourth goal in his last 12 games in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau is bopping along at a near 30-goal pace. Unfortunately, that's about all he's doing -- he's scoring at just a mid-40s rate overall. That's almost identical to Marleau's production in his last two seasons. He skates as well as he did a decade ago, but his fantasy value is plateauing. Use him for his obvious impact, but do not overrate his contribution.

Marleau delivered an even-strength goal in Tuesday night's 4-2 road loss to the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

The former Shark snapped a four-game pointless skid with his first-period marker. This was the 1,100th career point for the iron man, who has collected 11 goals and seven helpers through 32 games in his debut season with the Buds.

Marleau scored the game-winning goal Friday against the Hurricanes.

EDGE Analysis

It was already the fourth game-winning goal of the season for Marleau, who has picked up points in three of his last four contests. The veteran may be centering the fourth line right now, but he struck on the power play Friday and is now up to nine goals and 16 points in 21 contests on the season. Considering the fact the veteran has been held off the scoresheet in just two of his last nine outings, Marleau makes for a valuable fantasy play in a wide array of formats.

Marleau moved to center for Wednesday's game because Auston Matthews was scratched and delivered a goal in 14:33.

EDGE Analysis

Yes, he can play center, but no, it's not ideal at this point in his career. Marleau has delivered 11 points in 17 games this season, but could see depressed output with the increased workload that comes at center.

Marleau scored a goal and added an assist in a 3-1 win over the Ducks on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The 38-year-old's exodus from San Jose has gone well thus far, as he has five goals and four assists through 13 games. That's impressive given his age, but he did score 27 goals last season.

Marleau stepped into the role of second-line center for the third period of Monday's game in San Jose when coach Mike Babcock benched Tyler Bozak.

EDGE Analysis

Marleau is versatile, but we think he's better on the wing at this point in his career. Keep an eye on this. His production might slip short term is Babcock keeps Bozak in the doghouse.

Marleau had the game-winning goal in Monday's 3-2 victory over Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has adjusted well to his new surroundings in Ontario, He's averaging just under a point per game and could be in line for his best season since 2014 if the Maple Leafs can keep the scoring up.
