Insight: The former No. 1 overall pick hasn't produced a point in the last four games and has just 17 points in 47 games this season. His -31 differential is 10 goals worse than anyone in the league which makes him "un-startable."

Description: Edmonton right wing Nail Yakupov has scored a goal in two straight games since the Oilers made him a healthy scratch on Dec. 31.
Insight: The Oilers have done everything they can to get Yakupov going this season, including giving him top-line and power-play time he hasn't earned. The 20-year-old former No. 1 overall pick has just 16 points and an ugly -25 in 41 games and will only do damage to your fantasy team right now.

Description: Edmonton right wing Nail Yakupov isn't expected to play Tuesday night against Phoenix. SOURCE: Edmonton Journal
Insight: He'll be a healthy scratch. So far, the 20-year-old right wing hasn't lived up to expectations. Yakupov (six goals, eight assists) may need to go back to the minors for some extra seasoning.

Description: Edmonton right wing Nail Yakupov will return to the lineup Tuesday against Pittsburgh after sitting out the last two games. SOURCE: Gene Principe, Sportsnet.ca

4/4/2013 10:48:00 AM
Description: Edmonton right wing Nail Yakupov potted two goals Wednesday in a win over Calgary.
Insight: All those years of losing are finally paying off for Edmonton. By stockpiling the last three No. 1 overall picks (Taylor Hall, Mike Nugent-Hopkins and Yakupov), the Oilers have built a young core that should be good for many years to come. The future is now, Oilers fans.
 
1/31/2013 10:09:00 AM
Description: Oilers rookie forward Nail Yakupov had another clutch goal Wednesday in overtime against the Coyotes.
Insight: Yakupov had a game-tying goal last week with five seconds remaining against the Kings before Edmonton won in overtime and he memorably went sliding on his knees halfway across the ice. He was more reserved this time. Edmonton's celebration didn't last long since Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris got into a fight with the Oilers' Ryan Whitney. The 19-year-old Yakupov already has four goals in his first six NHL games.
 
1/23/2013 7:57:00 PM
Description: Edmonton had a pair of highly-touted youngsters score their first NHL goal Tuesday night against the Sharks. Nail Yakupov, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, was one of them.
Insight: Defenseman Justin Schultz was the other. Yakupov is getting significant playing time on the Oilers' second line and top power-play unit so he should be able to contribute solid fantasy numbers as a 19-year-old. Just don't expect a good plus/minus (-4 already).
