  • Josi collected two assists in Saturday's win over the Avalanche. Josi has now extended his point streak to three games and is up to 12 points (five goals) through 16 contests. He's having a strong start to the season and is an automatic roll whenever the Predators are in action. Josi plays over 20 minutes a night and helps anchor the top power-play unit, making him the ideal fantasy blueliner.

  • Josi snapped a three-game pointless streak with an assist during Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Capitals. However, he skated a season-low 19:22, far less than his season average of 25:22. Josi had been seeing monster ice time the previous three games -- in the 26-29-minute range -- so given the lopsided score, it could be just that coach Peter Laviolette decided to give his stud defenseman a bit of a breather. There was no mention of any injury following the game, so we're assuming all is good with the Preds' captain until we hear otherwise. Continue to start him with confidence.

  • Predators' Roman Josi: Paces team to victory
    By RotoWire Staff

    Josi collected a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 road win over the Ducks. Josi came up huge for daily fantasy players on this two-game slate, and now the sensational blueliner is up to four goals and just as many helpers through 10 games. Given the power-play quarterback's skill set that's quite conducive to fantasy points, in addition to his being a virtual lock for 25-plus minutes per game, Josi qualifies as an elite option at a position that's often tough to fill in fantasy.

  • Josi picked up two power-play points -- a goal and an assist -- to supplement four blocked shots over 27 minutes of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Flames. The Swiss national did have a minus-2 rating in the contest, but that mark was easily offset by his gaudy offensive contributions. Better yet, Josi looks healthy after missing three games with a lower-body injury earlier in the month. Keep him active in all settings.

  • Josi (lower body) recorded a power-play goal and an assist along with seven shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Colorado. Josi made a gargantuan impact in his return from a 10-day absence, scoring what ended up being the game-winning goal with the extra man in the second period while helping Nashville hold the opposition to just 21 shots. The latter accomplishment likely had something to do with playing an overmatched Avalanche club, but it still represented a major improvement after the team allowed at least 30 shots in each of its first five games. Josi had been held off the board in each of his first two appearances this season, but his ability to drive possession and create chances should have the 27-year-old blueliner in contention for a fifth consecutive 40-point season unless he's forced to miss significant time.
