  • Avalanche's Matthew Nieto: Racks up two assists against Buffalo

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/26/17) Nieto had a pair of assists in Saturday's win over Buffalo.

    They were the first points in 11 games for Nieto, who has netted four goals in 22 games since arriving in Colorado. The 24-year-old has the opportunity to produce more given the fact he's skating in the top-six alongside some caliber players, but it just hasn't come together. The 24-year-old has never surpassed 10 goals in his career, so don't expect much down the stretch given Colorado's position in the standings.

    Avalanche's Matthew Nieto: Good to go Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/17) Nieto (leg) will suit up for Thursday night's game against the Penguins.

    Turns out that Nieto's malady was nothing serious and he'll remain in the lineup, likely in his position on Colorado's second line. The 24-year-old has taken a healthy 24 shots on goal in his 12 games as a member of the Avalanche. The shooting tendency got him two goals against Winnipeg on Saturday, so he'll be hoping for more performances like that.

    Avalanche's Matthew Nieto: Questionable against Penguins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/17) Nieto (leg) is questionable to play in Thursday's matchup with Pittsburgh.

    According to coach Jared Bednar told reporters that Nieto's x-rays came back negative, which is no doubt good news for fantasy owners. Since being claimed by the Avs off waivers, the winger has tallied four goals and one helper in 12 appearances, while seeing 16:51 of ice time per night -- well above his season average of 12:13. If the 24-year-old is unable to go, Colorado may need to promote a player from the minors.

    Avalanche's Matthew Nieto: Limps off in third period

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/17) Nieto (leg) limped to the locker room in the third period of Tuesday's game against the Canadiens.

    Nieto was favoring his right leg after blocking a shot. He has posted three goals over the past five games, fitting in nicely in Denver as a top-six forward. When healthy Nieto is still only worth attention in deeper fantasy leagues and as a low-cost flier in DFS.

    Avalanche's Matthew Nieto: Makes impact in loss to Canucks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/26/17) Nieto scored a goal and registered seven shots on net during Wednesday's loss to Vancouver.

    This was by far Nieto's best game with Colorado. Playing with Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog is a ripe assignment for Nieto to fulfill his offensive potential, but he likely isn't worth a roster spot in the majority of seasonal leagues. Keep tabs on his progress, though, and the 24-year-old winger is currently presenting nice value in daily contests.

  • April 2, 2015: Sharks' Nieto Cracks Career-High Points Total
    Nieto had an assist, a plus-1 rating, and four shots in Wednesday's win over the Avalanche.With that assist, Nieto hits 25 points on the year, setting a new career-high total. He's still two goals shy of last year's total of 10 and he's had his slumps, but overall Nieto has taken a solid step forward this season.
