  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Grabs assist Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/10/16) Backstrom had an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Nashville.

    Backstrom had been without a point over the weekend action, but picked up his 32nd assist of the season to give him 49 points in 49 games. He remains a must-start every night, particularly since his goal-scoring has picked up tremendously this year with 17 tallies thus far.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Dishes twice in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/16) Backstrom handed out a pair of assists Thursday in a 3-2 win over the Isles, pushing his point streak to five games.

    It'd take quite the surge for Backstrom to hit the 60-assist mark, as he has the last two years, but 31 helpers to go with 17 goals in 48 games won't leave any fantasy owners complaining. As one of the most brilliant playmakers in the league and Alex Ovechkin's seemingly eternal partner on the Caps' top line, Backstrom's got nothing left to prove to fantasy owners. Just leave him in the lineup and let him do his work.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Extends goal streak to three games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/3/16) Backstrom corralled a deflection to score Washington's opening goal against Florida on Tuesday.

    Backstrom has been the definition of consistency this season, averaging just over a point per game and never going more than two nights without putting himself on the scoresheet. In addition to his even-strength numbers, the center is racking up helpers on the power play with 16 on the year. Given his nearly automatic nature, it would be more of a risk to not go with the 28-year-old for your fantasy lineup.

    The center was in the middle of the action again Tuesday night, and helped propel the Caps to their 35th win of the season. He now has 15 goals and 29 assists in 43 games on the year.

    (1/10/16) Backstrom dished out three assists in Sunday's win over the Senators.

    Backstrom has now worked his way onto the scoresheet in six straight contests, racking up nine points and a plus-7 rating in that span. The 28-year-old is up to 28 helpers on the season and is on pace to top the 70-point plateau for the third consecutive year.
