      Predators' Colin Wilson: Slumping offensively despite second-line role

      Wilson has just a single assist in his past eight games. Expectations were high for Wilson after he recorded a career-high 42 points last year. However, he's taken a step backwards so far this season with just six points in 15 games. He continues to skate on the Preds' second line with Craig Smith and Mike Ribeiro, however he has seen his ice time decline in recent weeks, from an average of 17 minutes in his first six games to just 14 minutes his last time out (Thursday against Toronto). Wilson still has plenty of upside, but his fantasy value remains limited due to his lack of consistency.

      Predators' Colin Wilson: Assists in win over Oilers

      Wilson recorded his first point of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Oilers, notching a second-period assist. Wilson posted his first-ever 20-goal season last year, en route to a 42-point campaign. As long as he keeps seeing top-six minutes, averaging over 16 minutes in two games thus far, he should be in a good position to put up similar numbers this season. For now, he continues to skate primarily on the Preds' second line alongside Craig Smith and Mike Fisher.

      Analysis: With 42 points in 75 games, it's been a career season for Colin Wilson, but he's still a very streaky player who tends to disappear for long stretches at a time.
