Predators' Yannick Weber: Watching from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber served as a healthy scratch for the third straight game Saturday against the Avalanche.

With the arrival of Dante Fabbro and Jarred Tinordi this season, Weber is currently the odd man out on the Preds' blue line. We expect he will likely get the odd spot start here and there down the stretch, but his days as an everyday player in the NHL are likely over.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Not seeing much game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber saw ice time of just 8:10 in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Oilers.

Ouch. For a guy who's been averaging close to 14 minutes a game this season, the Preds' coaching staff is clearly not showing a lot of confidence in the 31-year-old blueliner right now. Either way, Weber has not cracked double digits in points for the past four seasons, and he is no threat to do so this year, either. He has virtually no fantasy value outside of ultra-deep leagues.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Registers rare assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber picked up an assist, three shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Oilers.

Weber earned the secondary helper on Colin Blackwell's first-period goal. The Swiss defenseman has just two helpers, 30 shots, 22 hits and 19 blocks in 26 games this season. He's seen a consistent role recently due to Ryan Ellis' upper-body injury suffered in the Winter Classic versus the Stars. That being said, Weber is unlikely to make enough of an impact to interest fantasy owners.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Riding pine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber served as a healthy scratch for the fourth consecutive game Monday against the Coyotes.

With the arrival of rookie blueliner Dante Fabbro this season, the 31-year-old Weber is essentially fighting to hold down a roster spot this season, currently platooning with Matt Irwin to play opposite Dan Hamhuis on the Preds' third defensive pairing. Now with just a single assist in 19 games, Weber's fantasy value is hovering dangerously close to zero in all formats.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Picks up first point of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber recorded an assist and two PIM in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Devils.

Weber skated under 10 minutes for the third time this season. The little-used blueliner has produced just the single assist, 12 hits, nine blocked shots and 11 shots on goal through 16 games this season. He hasn't topped 10 points since 2014-15 -- feel free to avoid the 31-year-old in fantasy.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Offense non-existent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber skated in his second consecutive game Saturday against the Panthers following a six-game stint as a healthy scratch. He skated just 11:46 with one hit and two shots on goal.

Still looking for his first point of the season, the last time the 31-year-old blueliner cracked double digits in points was five seasons ago (2014-15) while with the Canucks. In short, he doesn't score enough -- or even play enough -- to warrant any real fantasy consideration.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Watching from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber sat out his fourth straight game as a healthy scratch Thursday against the Flames.

Weber continues to platoon with Dan Hamhuis and Matt Irwin for a spot on the team's third defensive pairing. He has not cracked double digits in points since the 2014-15 season when he played for the Canucks, and won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Still looking for first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber played his seventh consecutive game without a point in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Coyotes.

This should not come as a surprise, as the 31-year-old blueliner has recorded fewer than 10 points in each of the last four seasons. Being more the stay-at-home type, you should be used to seeing Weber go long stretches without cracking the scoresheet. His fantasy value continues to hover dangerously close to zero in most formats.

March 31, 2019 01:56 PM
Predators' Yannick Weber: Scratched Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber sat out Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets as a healthy scratch.

Weber took a seat on the bench to make room for rookie Dante Fabbro, who was making his NHL debut against the Jackets. Looking ahead, it's possible you will see a brief platoon situation develop between Weber, Fabbro and Matt Irwin over the final few games of the regular season, but you should expect to see Weber play the majority of games opposite Dan Hamhuis on the Preds' third defensive pairing once the playoffs start.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Limited in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (upper body) skated 8:48 in a 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday.

The ice time was 3:25 less than his season average entering the contest. The Predators are known for using their third pairing sparingly, but this was the fourth-lowest amount Weber has skated in 54 appearances this year.

March 9, 2019 10:36 PM
Predators' Yannick Weber: Set to return against Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (upper body) will return Saturday versus the Hurricanes, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

Weber missed Nashville's last game with an upper-body injury. The 30-year-old has only found the scoresheet eight times -- two goals and six assists -- in 53 games this season, so his reinsertion into the Preds' lineup won't be huge news for fantasy folk.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Nursing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber has an upper-body injury and won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Wild, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Weber is an occasional healthy scratch anyway and he zero points over the last 10 games. The 30-year-old's absence will allow Matt Donovan to suit up with the Predators for the second time this season.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Scoring, ice time on decline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber has just a single point in 15 games since being activated off the IR in mid-January.

To make matters worse, he's been averaging 11:27 over that stretch, and he's been a healthy scratch five times. The good news is, with Dan Hamhuis (leg) currently on the IR, Weber should see more consistent minutes over the foreseeable future, but a scoring outburst does not appear to be imminent for the 30-year-old Swiss defender.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Earns plus-2 rating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber -- who was playing for the first time in 10 games due to an undisclosed injury -- recorded a plus-2 rating and one hit in 14:29 of ice time against Washington on Tuesday.

Despite his stint on the sidelines, Weber is on pace to crack the 10-point mark for the first time since the 2-14-15 campaign when he was with Vancouver. Considering the Swiss blueliner has managed to break the 20-point threshold just once in his career, he is unlikely to offer significant fantasy value the rest of the way.

January 15, 2019 04:08 PM
Predators' Yannick Weber: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Predators activated Weber (undisclosed) off injured reserve Tuesday.

Weber has missed Nashville's last 10 games due to an undisclosed injury, but he'll finally make his return to the lineup Tuesday, skating with Dan Hamhuis on the Predators' bottom pairing against the Capitals. The veteran's return will bolster his team's blue-line depth, but it will almost certainly go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, as he's only totaled 12 points in 84 appearances over the past two campaigns.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Remains on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (undisclosed) is not expected to return to the lineup against the Maple Leafs on Monday and is still on injured reserve.

Weber has been skating with the team, per Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site, but still hasn't been given the green light to resume playing. Even once cleared to play, the blueliner could struggle to break into the lineup over Matt Irwin or Dan Hamhuis.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Effectively ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (undisclosed) was on the ice with two of his injured teammates Tuesday, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports. However, the defenseman remains on injured reserve and isn't in the projected lineup for the evening's home game versus the Flyers.

Weber appears to be making progress, but in the absence of specific details about what's been bothering him, it's difficult to know how close he is to a return. In a way, it's good that he doesn't have much fanfare in the fantasy realm -- one less player to worry about when it comes to tracking injuries.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (undisclosed) was designated for injured reserve Thursday.

In order to activate P.K. Subban (upper body), the club needed to make room on the 23-man roster, hence the placement of Weber on IR. Even if the Preds used a retroactive designation, the 30-year-old Weber won't be eligible to play until Monday's clash with the Capitals. Once cleared to return, the Swiss international will have to break his way into the lineup over Matt Irwin or Dan Hamhuis, and he could find himself watching from the press box more often than not.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Misses a.m. skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber (undisclosed) wasn't available for morning skate Thursday, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Since Weber wasn't on the ice following Christmas break, it would take a miraculous turnaround for the defenseman to be available for Thursday's home game against the Stars. Fortunately, this news isn't likely to shake up any fantasy rosters, as Weber only has two goals and five assists through 37 games.

Predators' Yannick Weber: Multi-point showing not enough
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weber dished out two helpers in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Vancouver.

The injury-riddled Predators are looking for offense anywhere they can get it, and Weber was certainly a surprise contributor given that he came in with just four points through 28 games. He skated just 11:39 in this one and remains an afterthought in the fantasy realm.
