  • Predators' Craig Smith: Scores only goal against Panthers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/17) Smith scored one goal and registered three shots on net through 15:51 of ice time during Friday's loss to Florida.

    With three consecutive 20-goal showings on his resume, Smith's seven tallies and 14 points through the first 38 games of the campaign are disappointing totals. More concerning is the significant drop in shot volume this season. After averaging 2.74 shots per game through the past three years, Smith has registered just 1.76 in 2016-17. Additionally, Smith entered Friday's game averaging only 13:58 of ice (1:37 of power-play time) per night, which also represents a drop. Smith is off the fantasy radar in most settings at this point of the season, but if he begins receiving more ice time, he has the potential to finish the year strong.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Contributes assist in win over Devils

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/21/16) Smith recorded an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 romp over the Devils. The helper was just his second point in the past two weeks, and 12th point through 31 games this season.

    The downward slide continues for Smith, who has seen his point production decrease every year since his career-high of 52 back in 2013-14. Oddly enough, the 27-year-old should be in the prime scoring years of his career, but he just can't seem to show any real consistency. At this point, he is best utilized in deeper fantasy formats only.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Second straight assist in loss to Flyers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/16) Smith recorded an assist for the second consecutive game during Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers.

    While it's nice to see Smitty showing some consistency, the fact remains he still only has 10 points in 23 games, which puts him on pace for a 40-point season at best. If that's what you had in mind when you drafted him, you won't be disappointed.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Notches goal in win over Stars

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/16) Smith scored his sixth goal of the season in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Stars.

    Following a five-game pointless drought earlier in November, Smith now has three points in his last four games. That puts him roughly on pace for a 35-40 point season, much like the 37 points he recorded last year. Smith's value has fallen off since his 52-point effort from three seasons ago, but given his top-six role on an offensively-loaded Predators team, he should still be owned in most deeper fantasy formats.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Scores twice, stuffs stat sheet in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/2/16) Smith scored the opening and closing goals in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Colorado, rounding out his stat line with a plus-2 rating, two PIM and two hits.

    He struck for his third goal of the season only 1:33 into the game, and he polished off the Avs with an unassisted tally at the 13:18 mark of the final frame. All four of Smith's points through the first eight games are goals, and the Preds (not to mention his fantasy owners) would surely like to see him round out his stat line a bit more nicely after he tallied a meager 16 assists to go with 21 goals over 82 games last year.

    April 1, 2015: Predators D Roman Josi is unsung hero of special season in Nashville
    Roman Josi is overshadowed as part of the great story that is the Nashville Predators, but in terms of what he provides to the team versus what he is paid, he's one of the league's best bargains.
