Prior to the injury, the 28-year-old wasn't expected to be a major part of the Avs' plans on the blue line, and he'll have an even more difficult time trying to carve out a role in Calgary's defensive corps, which may be the deepest in the NHL.

Once thought to be one of the Avs' most promising defensemen, Wilson has been limited to just 34 games over the past two seasons due to a combination of injury and healthy scratch. His fantasy value is at an extremely low ebb, and he should not be counted on in most standard formats.
