  • Red Wings' Jonathan Ericsson: Reveals hip condition

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/14/16) Ericsson has been suffering from a hip impingement but currently is not in favor of undergoing corrective surgery, the Detroit Free Press reports. "We'll see how it goes," said the defenseman. "It gets a little worse every year. There's arthritis in there, too."

    It appears that he'll continue to play through the pain. The Red Wings have $4.75 million invested in Ericsson annually until he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2020-21. Considering the big Swede has been in the league for nine years and still hasn't topped 15 points in a season, Ericsson was unlikely to see high ownership rates in fantasy even before giving mention to his hip woes, but now we're questioning whether he's worth a high paycheck from the Wings. Every team needs a big body to anchor the blue line and Ericsson can be that guy, though he lacks a physical edge to compensate for the offensive deficiencies.

    Red Wings' Jonathan Ericsson: At risk of losing top-pairing status

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/30/16) Ericsson needs to improve in order to avoid losing his spot on the top defensive pair, MLive.com reports.

    Ericsson was lackluster in his own zone last season as evidenced by a career-worst 61 giveways. As noted in the report, the hulky defender needs to demonstrate better footwork. The Swede has registered exactly three goals and 12 assists in each of the past two seasons, leaving a lot to be desired from a fantasy perspective, and the possibility that he'll move way down to the third pairing only gives you more reason to avoid him in just about any format. Fans of the Winged Wheel should consider Xavier Ouellett as a sneaky alternative since he's a puck-moving blueliner no longer exempt from waivers and ready to secure a full-time role in the NHL.

    Red Wings' Jonathan Ericsson: Scores in victory Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/11/16) Ericsson tallied his fourth goal of the season Thursday in a 3-2 win against Winnipeg.

    Ericsson has scored a little more as of late, with two goals and an assist in his last seven games, and is also a plus-2 over that span. With a career high of 15 points, Ericsson will never light the world on fire from a fantasy standpoint but is a serviceable defender.

    Red Wings' Jonathan Ericsson: Should return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/16) Ericsson (lower body) is "real close" to a return and should be able to play in Saturday's game, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.

    Ericsson has missed the last five games with the injury, but appears about ready to go. He will provide a little stability on the blue line, as Detroit has struggled with defenseman injuries as of late, but not a ton of offensive upside with nine points in 50 games.

    Red Wings' Jonathan Ericsson: Out again Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/16) Coach Ken Holland indicated Monday that Ericsson (lower body) won't return to the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Not much of an offensive threat (nine points in 50 games), Ericsson doesn't really provide much to be excited about in fantasy. Still, the Red Wings will certainly welcome his return when it occurs, but his next chance now comes Saturday against the Avalanche.
