Description: Sabres right wing Drew Stafford scored a goal during Saturday's loss to the Panthers.
Insight: He now has five goals and nine points through 24 games, but a minus-11 rating as well. Stafford is not a relevant fantasy option.
 
9/22/2014 6:21:00 PM
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.
 
4/10/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: Buffalo right wing Drew Stafford has scored 12 goals over his last 26 games.

Hot3/13/2014 9:47:00 PM
Description: Buffalo right wing Drew Stafford scored a goal for the third consecutive game Thursday against the Hurricanes.
Insight: Stafford has 13 goals and 15 assists in 58 games, so he's not a very good fantasy option despite the recent hot streak.
 
2/3/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Buffalo right wing Drew Stafford is expected to return to the lineup on Monday night after missing games due to an upper body injury.
Insight: Stafford was once a 50-point a season guy, but has fallen off the fantasy radar screen with 18 points in 2012 and 18 points with a -10 rating in 46 games this season.

Description: Buffalo right wing Drew Stafford had his best game of the season Saturday in a loss to Ottawa (two goals, five shots on goal).
Insight: Stafford has been mostly invisible this season, producing only 11 points in 28 games. He usually plays with the fourth unit so we wouldn't count on too many performances like this the rest of the season.

Description: The Buffalo Sabres have signed forward Drew Stafford to a multi-year contract extension. TSN
Insight: Stafford scored a career-high 31 goals and 52 points in just 62 games last season. Four hat tricks during the season helped the cause for Stafford, who has solidified himself as a worthwhile fantasy option.
 
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.
 
3/25/2011 11:41:00 PM
Description: Drew Stafford scored two goals and added an assist in the Sabres' 4-2 win over Florida on Friday. Yahoo Sports

Insight: Stafford's status for Saturday's game against Toronto is not known.
 
2/14/2011 2:04:00 PM
Description: Stafford's two hat tricks over the past week were enough to land him as the league's second star.
Insight: They doubled his season total to a league-leading four hat tricks and probably would have been enough for the first star if Michael Grabner hadn't spent the week scorching. (RapidDraft.com)
 
2/14/2011 1:02:00 AM
Description: Stafford tallied a hat trick in Sunday's loss to the Islanders.

2/13/2011 6:59:00 PM
Description: Drew Stafford scored three goals with a +3 in the Sabres' 7-6 overtime loss to the Islanders on Sunday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Stafford has a Michael Grabner-like statline this season, with 23 goals to go with just 10 assists. The more interesting stat is the fact that Stafford has two hat tricks in the span of five days, as he also scored three goals against Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Stafford has eight goals in his past four games, so he is without a doubt one of the league's hottest scorers and will receive consideration for the NHL's Three Stars, which will be announced Monday.
 
2/9/2011 2:29:00 AM
Description: Drew Stafford scored three goals with a +3 in the Sabres' 7-4 win over Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Stafford now has five career hat tricks, with three of them coming in the past 19 games. He also has six points over his last two games, so he is nearing a point-per-game pace this season with 30 points (20g-10a) in 34 games. He has also now reached 20 goals for the second time in his career. But if you need hat tricks, remember that he's your man.
