Varlamov will man the crease for Thursday's matchup with Florida, Adrian Dater of BSNDenver.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After enduring a forgettable, injury-hit 2016-17 campaign, about the only thing that's improved for Varly in 2017-18 is his health. Having already played 19 games, Varlamov is 9-8-1 with a 3.19 GAA and .903 save percentage, making it difficult to justify selecting him for fantasy lineups. Varlamov could have a rare favorable matchup Thursday, though, as he'll be taking on a Panthers squad that scores just 2.25 goals per game on the road -- the second-worst mark in the league.

Varlamov allowed four goals on 26 shots during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Varlamov couldn't carry the day against the team that drafted him and falls to a 9-8-1 record on the season. The 29-year-old Russian relies on starter's volume for his fantasy value and remains a risky play most nights.

Varlamov will start Tuesday's road matchup against the Capitals, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Varlamov received the night off Monday when his team took down the defending champion Penguins in a 2-1 victory and will have the chance to notch his second consecutive win after making 39 saves against the Panthers on Saturday. That will certainly be a tall order against a Washington squad that, prior to a disappointing loss to the Islanders on Monday, had scored four goals or more in the previous four contests.

Varlamov made 39 saves in Saturday's 7-3 win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

Nice night, but it's just Varly's ninth win of the season and his first in December. His 41-win season in 2013-14 looks tiny in the rear-view mirror. Varlamov might rebound, but he needs to snap out of his pedestrian ways. Saturday was a start -- let's see if he can continue it.

Varlamov will start between the pipes in Saturday's road game against the Panthers, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Varlamov has struggled recently, suffering three consecutive losses while registering an ugly 3.22 GAA and .894 save percentage over that span. The Russian netminder will look to right the ship Saturday in a tough road matchup with a Panthers club that's averaging 3.64 goals per game at home this season, sixth in the NHL.

Varlamov stopped 27 of 31 shots during Thursday's 5-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

While this was a daunting road test for Varlamov and the Avs, it also continues a rough stretch for the backstop, as he's gone 2-4-1 with an .892 save percentage and 3.23 GAA through his past eight appearances. It's probably wise to be selective with Varlamov's matchups moving forward.

Varlamov will start in goal Thursday night against host Tampa Bay, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the season 3-0-0 with a 1.67 GAA and .945 save percentage, the Russian has fizzled out like a carbonated beverage, going 5-6-1 with 3.44 and .897 marks over 13 more appearances between the pipes. It's hard to trust Varlamov, let alone against the league's top offense in the Bolts. Fortunately for daily players, there will be 17 other starters to choose from on Thursday's slate.

Varlamov stopped 31 of 34 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Varlamov didn't play poorly, but he was simply outdueled by Robin Lehner en route to suffering his third consecutive loss. The 29-year-old's lackluster .905 save percentage and 8-6-1 record indicate just how mediocre he's been this season. Varlamov's been playing fine of late and has started four straight games, but the team's struggles, combined with his inconsistency, make him worth avoiding in many shallower formats.

Varlamov will get the starting nod against the Sabres on Tuesday, Rick Sadowski of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Varlamov will be making his fourth straight appearance between the pipes after coming on in relief of Jonathan Bernier on Sunday. The 29-year-old Varlamov has allowed just two goals in each of those outings, but has only one win to show for it. Considering Buffalo has tallied a lone goal in its previous two matchups, the netminder has a decent shot at snagging his ninth victory of the season.

Varlamov allowed two goals on 18 shots in relief during Sunday's 7-2 loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Jonathan Bernier gifted the Stars four goals on their first nine shots, which prompted Varlamov's entry. The Russian netminder should be back between the pipes Tuesday against visiting Buffalo.
