Jason Chimera, # 25
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
52141529414
 
News
Chimera scored a goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win in Nashville.

Chimera continues to have a solid campaign and could get a boost Marcus Johansson returning to the lineup. With 14 goals and 29 points in 53 games, the elder statesman of the Capitals continues to have some value in deeper leagues despite averaging only 13:42 of ice time per game.

Justin Williams, # 14
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
521720371716
 
News
Williams scored a goal to go along with an assist and two PIM in Tuesday's 5-3 victory over the Predators.

Williams continues to produce for the Caps, notching 17 goals and 20 assists on the season. The 34-year-old should easily surpass last year's 41 points with the Kings, meaning fantasy owners will continue to be very pleased he signed with Washington.

Brooks Laich, # 21
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
51156-710
 
News
Laich picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-2 OT win over the Devils.

The assist -- his first in 2016 -- couldn't have come at a better time as he helped set up Paul Carey's game-tying goal in the third period. A fixture on the fourth line, Laich has only managed one goal and five points in 48 games this season, and has more value to the Capitals as a defensive specialist than he does in fantasy leagues.

Alex Ovechkin, # 8
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
503114452228
 
News
Ovechkin scored on a power play in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

That's now 31 goals on the season for Ovie, who continues to dominate the ice, and should continue to put up superstar numbers. The lower-body injury is obviously a thing of the past, which means the 30-year-old is a no-brainer starter in all formats.

Nicklas Backstrom, # 19
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
491732491922
 
News
Backstrom had an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Nashville.

Backstrom had been without a point over the weekend action, but picked up his 32nd assist of the season to give him 49 points in 49 games. He remains a must-start every night, particularly since his goal-scoring has picked up tremendously this year with 17 tallies thus far.

Karl Alzner, # 27
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
52315181718
 
News
Alzner picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Nashville.

This gives Alzner three assists in his last two games, quite the point-streak for a stalwart defensive defenseman. With John Carlson now back in the lineup and Brooks Orpik (lower body) set to return soon, it wouldn't be surprising to see Alzner's minutes scaled back a little, as he's logging a career-high 21:21 per game. While his plus-17 rating gives him some value in deeper leagues for the time being, temper expectations about prolific offensive outbursts like the last two games as the season moves forward.

Matt Niskanen, # 2
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
52320231822
 
News
Niskanen registered the game-winning goal in Sunday's win over the Flyers.

Niskanen fired a game-high seven shots and broke the tie for good just over five minutes into the third period. The defenseman doesn't light up the lamp himself too often -- the tally was just his third goal of the year -- but he's dished out 20 helpers and sports an impressive plus-16 rating.

John Carlson, # 74
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
4062228414
 
News
Carlson picked up an assist in 24:16 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Nashville.

Carlson is still trying to regain his offensive form after missing 12 games with a lower-body injury, as he has just one assist in five games since returning from the injury on Jan.27. The 26-year-old Olympian is still logging plenty of minutes and getting work on the top power-play unit, so he's likely to pick up the pace in the near future. Carlson has six goals and 28 points in 40 games in 2015-16.

Braden Holtby, # 70
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPW-L-OTSOSV%GAA
4334-5-22.9282.08
 
News
Holtby halted 23 of 26 shots by the Predators en route to a 5-3 win Tuesday.

The Holtbeast continues his dominance of the league, and even with a below-average save percentage in this contest, he's still able to come away with the win. That's now four straight for the 26-year-old, and there's no reason to think he'll slow down any time soon. Next up for Holtby is a matchup against the Wild on Thursday.

Marcus Johansson, # 90
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
451419331512
 
News
Johansson scored a goal to go along with two assists and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

Johansson didn't miss a beat after missing four games with an upper-body injury. The 25-year-old brought an immediate spark to the third line that hadn't scored during his absence. Deploy the former first-round pick as usual moving forward.

YEAR-TO-DATE STATS

News
Burakovsky tallied an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 victory over Nashville.

Burakovsky now has points in eight straight games, easily the longest streak of his young career. The second line for the Caps is producing at a high level, allowing the 20-year-old to excel, especially as of late. Continue to ride the winger while he's hot.

Evgeny Kuznetsov, # 92
YEAR-TO-DATE STATS
GPGAPTS+/-PIM
521539542424
 
News
Kuznetsov notched an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 win against the Predators.

Kuznetsov hit 100 career points, the first of many milestones to come for the 23-year-old center. Kuzy now has an assist in three straight, furthering his case as a must-start every night.
