  • Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Beats Blackhawks in overtime Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/17) Johnson's second goal of the season was the overtime winner Tuesday against Chicago.

    It's been a trying season for Johnson and the Avs, to say the least. Hampered by injury all season, Johnson has appeared in just 42 games and will likely finish with his lowest offensive output in four seasons. His fantasy value has been minimal due to his limited appearances and low production.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Dishes two helpers in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/17) Johnson garnered a pair of assists in Monday's 4-2 loss to Calgary.

    The pair of apples snapped a 14-game point drought. It's been a rough season for the 2006 first-overall pick, as injuries have limited him to just 39 games and 14 points, so Johnson will make for an interesting bounce-back candidate in 2017-18.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Feeling comfortable after long layoff

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/4/17) Johnson (leg) is finally feeling good four games into his return after a long layoff due to injury, Ron Knabenbauer of NHL.com reports.

    Johnson was on the shelf for 36 games due to a broken leg. He is back and logging plenty of time time, and he now feels his legs are back and so is his timing. His best asset to fantasy owners is his ability to block shots, something he has been very good at doing over the years. However, the Avalanche rank dead-last in goal differential, so if your pool penalizes plus/minus rating he is not a recommended option.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Expected to return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/24/17) Johnson (leg) is expected to play Saturday's game against the Sabres, per coach Jared Bednar.

    It's been a long time coming for Johnson and he finally appears ready to return from a 36-game absence after breaking his leg on Dec. 3. The Minnesota native could immediately slot into one of Colorado's top two defensive pairings, though it remains to see who his partner will be on the blue line.

    Avalanche's Erik Johnson: Could return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/17) Johnson (leg) is practicing fully and says he will be ready to play Saturday against the Sabres, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

    While it's difficult to take players at their own word since they generally overestimate their ability to get out there, Johnson has been rehabbing for months and the progress he's made to this point would seem to indicate that Saturday is in fact a realistic return date for him. The 28-year-old's return could provide a boost for rest of the players on team, though not enough for them to make the playoffs.
