  • Carlson registered two assists (one on the power play) and a plus-1 rating during Saturday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jackets. Carlson continues to build on a breakout campaign with his 19th point in 27 games. Only a minus-10 rating blemishes an otherwise banner season, as he marches towards unrestricted free agency next summer. Logging a career-high 26:39 of ice time per game and anchoring a potent No. 1 power-play unit, the 27-year-old defender is a must-start asset every night.

  • Capitals' John Carlson: Notches helper Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Carlson recorded a power-play assist during Saturday's 3-1 win over the Wild. Carlson has been a rock for the Capitals (and fantasy owners) in 2017-18 with two goals and 17 points in 21 games. Only a minus-8 rating blemishes a remarkable effort to open the season, and improvements to that and his goal-scoring output are all that stand between the 27-year-old and Norris Trophy consideration.

  • Carlson tallied an assist and a minus-1 rating during Thursday's 6-2 loss at the hands of the Avalanche. The pending unrestricted free agent is putting together an excellent campaign with 16 points in 20 games. The only black marks are a minus-7 rating and a possible decrease in his ice time now that Matt Niskanen is back in the lineup. Caveats notwithstanding, the 27-year-old rearguard has been dynamite in all formats this season so keep playing Carlson as you normally would.

  • Capitals' John Carlson: Collects two more helpers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Carlson recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- through 25:26 of ice time during Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Nashville. This was Carlson's fourth multi-point showing through his past seven games, and he's now up to two goals, 13 assists and 59 shots for the campaign. It's been an impressive start for the power-play quarterback, and his seven markers with the man advantage shouldn't go unnoticed, either. Unfortunately, his minus-7 rating is a category anchor. Hopefully, Matt Niskanen's return from a lower-body injury will enable Carlson to play a few more minutes per game in softer five-on-five matchups to help his rating rebound.

  • Capitals' John Carlson: Leaves mark on win over Pens
    By RotoWire Staff

    Carlson recorded a goal and an assist on the power play during Friday's 4-1 win over Pittsburgh. This was Carlson's third multi-point showing through his past five games, and he now has a rock-solid two goals, 13 points and 57 shots through 17 games. Additionally, the 27-year-old defenseman is logging a career-high 27:13 of ice time per contest, so his role should help him remain a go-to asset in the majority of fantasy settings.
