Backes Disarms Sabres

Standard Spin: David Backes was an offensive juggernaut on Saturday, contributing directly to every St. Louis goal and finishing with 2G and 2A.  He also had 6 shots and 4 hits - a solid rotisserie total.  Backes is coming through once again this season as a dependable second tier fantasy option.  He has 16 goals and 37 points in 47 games so far this season.
