  • Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Tallies assist Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/18) Chorney recorded an assist during Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Hurricanes.

    Chorney will likely garner more playing time in place of the injured Matt Niskanen (upper body). However, the 30-year-old still has very limited fantasy upside unless he can earn consistent playing time due to injuries, as he's clearly behind rookies Christian Djoos and Madison Bowey on the depth chart when everyone is healthy.

    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Scratched last two games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/4/17) Chorney sat in the press box during Saturday's 4-3 overtime victory over Columbus.

    Chorney has now been scratched the last two games in the nation's capital and has been struggling to find consistent playing time throughout 2017-18, only averaging 13:01. The 30-year-old has put up three points (one goal, two assists) in 20 games, but unless Washington encounters injuries to its defensive corps, it seems likely his usage and point production will remain similar for the rest of the season.

    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Pots first goal of the season Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/3/17) Chorney netted a goal in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Islanders.

    The 30-year-old defenseman opened the scoring early in the first period to give him two points in nine games to start the season. He's on track for another single-digit season, though consistent ice time may be hard to come by once Matt Niskanen (upper body) returns to the lineup, both of which significantly limit his fantasy value to the deepest of leagues.

    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Expected to sit out Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/11/17) Chorney is expected to be a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Penguins, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington reports.

    Chorney's absence has more to do with giving youngster Christian Djoos playing time than anything else. He's a trusted depth defender for the Capitals, but there's a lot of competition for regular ice time on the third defense pairing, so his fantasy upside remains extremely and predictably limited.

    Capitals' Taylor Chorney: Records helper Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/17) Chorney picked up an assist in Monday's 8-7 OT loss to the Penguins.

    His third point of the season certainly helped ease the absence of John Carlson (upper body). With three points in 9 games, Chorney is a steady reserve defenseman for the Capitals, but will struggle to provide much fantasy value unless he can log regular minutes.
