Description: Sabres right wing Drew Stafford is trying to repeat his 30-goal season from the 2009-2010 season.
Insight: Stafford told the Buffalo News that the Sabres enter this season with higher expectations despite finishing last year with the fewest points in the NHL. With the right linemates, Stafford could threaten the 30-goal mark again, but with his situation in flex, he is not a player worth spending a high pick on in the draft. We see Stafford in the 15-20 goal range this year.

4/2/2011 11:33:00 PM
Description: Drew Stafford scored two goals with six shots on goal in the Sabres' 5-4 overtime loss to Washington on Saturday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Stafford has now scored 30 goals in a season for the first time in his career. His assist total is a bit imbalanced (18 assists), but he seems to be a perfect example of a post-hype sleeper in fantasy leagues this season.
