  • Predators' Austin Watson: Extends pointless drought Sunday versus Jackets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/17) Watson was held off the scoresheet Sunday against the Blue Jackets, giving him just one point in his last 15 games.

    Watson has spent most of this season skating on the Preds' fourth line, which provides him little opportunity to contribute much offensively. Watson has been one of the better scorers at AHL Milwaukee the past few seasons, but has so far had little impact at the NHL level.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Scores for third straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/13/17) Watson opened the scoring with an unassisted goal early in the second period of Thursday's 2-1 victory over Boston.

    He picked up a loose puck right in front of the Boston net and fired it home, giving him goals in three consecutive games. That's quite a leap in production for a guy who had only one goal and seven points in 35 contests previously, but it's not totally out of nowhere -- after all, the 24-year-old (who turns 25 on Friday) was the No. 18 overall selection in the 2010 draft and has thrice cleared 20 goals in the AHL. With a steady trickle of PIM to go with this offensive surge, he's carving out a degree of deep-league relevance.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Scores first goal in rare multi-point effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/30/16) Watson tallied his first goal and his second assist of the season as well as five PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Colorado.

    Points are a blessed rarity for Watson, as he had just a lonely helper over 17 games to open the season. With not much ice time available for the 25-year-old fourth-liner, his fantasy value is painfully low, but it's worth noting that he's been a decent offensive contributor at the AHL level in the past.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Still searching for first point of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/15/16) Waston has been held pointless through 10 games since being recalled from the AHL in October.

    Watson had only 10 points in 57 games with the Preds last year, playing on th team's fourth line. He's playing a similar role this season, so there's no real reason to believe the points will come any more frequently. What's more, Watson's secondary stat totals (hits, PIM, blocked shots) aren't exactly eye-popping either, so there aren't many fantasy formats where he holds a lot of value right now. Avoid.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Called up to NHL on Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/23/16) Watson was called up to the Predators on Saturday, TSN reports.

    After playing in 57 NHL games last season, it would make sense that Watson sticks around for a while. However, if he ends up playing poorly, he could easily bounce back down to the minors.
