Wilson recorded a goal, an assist, three shots on net, six hits and a plus-3 rating during Friday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.
Wilson has been moved to the No. 1 line with Nicklas Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin, and it's been an instant fantasy success for the rambunctious winger. With Wilson's willingness to throw his body around and take penalties, his recent offensive outburst (three-game point streak with three goals and four assists) has his fantasy arrow pointing straight up. However, it wouldn't be shocking if this uptick in value was fleeting.
Wilson stepped up with two goals and two assists in a 6-2 win over Chicago on Wednesday.
Wednesday night marked almost one-third of Wilson's output for the entire season, as he's only tallied 13 points on the year. Don't expect numbers like this to happen often; this was his first multi-point game of the year and the Capitals have too many weapons for him to find his way to the scoresheet very often.
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).
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.
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.
