  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Notches helper Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Wilson picked up an assist during Thursday's 6-2 loss at the hands of the Avalanche. The power forward has six points in 16 games, which is an improvement over his production rate in recent seasons. Still, Wilson is a volatile play outside of leagues that reward hits (40) and penalty minutes (55).

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Picks up helper Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Wilson recorded an assist and seven PIM during Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Oilers. The power forward was at the center of attention all night long and engaged in a spirited bout with Oilers heavyweight Patrik Maroon in the opening frame before setting up Dmitry Orlov's goal in the third period. The 23-year-old winger has excellent upside in deeper formats where his PiM (48) and hits (34) are more advantageous, but he's also scoring at a better rate this year, so keep an eye on him in standard formats if the offensive totals pick up.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Pots first goals Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Wilson finished with two goals, five shots and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Bruins. It was a banner night for the power forward, who had arguably the best game of his career. The first-round pick from the 2012 NHL Entry Draft is a solid play in deeper leagues that count stats like hits and penalty minutes, but his overall fantasy value has been going up in recent outings as Washington's third line is starting to come alive, so he might be worth a look in your league.

  • Capitals' Tom Wilson: Records assist Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Wilson finished with an assist and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Islanders. The burly winger has two points in his first nine games but is starting to look more comfortable on a third line with Lars Eller and Chandler Stephenson that has been on fire in recent games. The power forward will continue to be more valuable in deeper leagues that count hits and penalty minutes, but will have limited value in standard formats until he can become a more consistent point producer and power-play threat.

  • Wilson had an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win against the Red Wings. With a whopping 16:16 of ice time following his promotion to the second line alongside Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie, the power forward ended a three-game point drought to start the season. Remember, Wilson was suspended for the first four contests. His grasp on a regular top-six role is quite tenuous considering Andre Burakovsky is probably better suited for that spot. However, Wilson's fantasy value gets a considerable boost as long as he's getting regular ice time with such offensive heavyweights. Enjoy the ride while it lasts.
