  • Predators' Austin Watson: Facing suspension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/29/19) Watson will be suspended without pay as he enters the second stage of the Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports, adding that the winger will be eligible to return once authorized for "on-ice competition" by the SABH administrators.

    This suspension has been issued under the terms of a joint program regulated by the NHL and NHLPA. Watson faced a 27-game ban after pleading no contest to misdemeanor domestic assault charges in July of 2018, but the league ultimately reduced the length of that suspension to 18 games before he returned Nov. 15. According to Vingan, this latest development is "related exclusively to (Watson's) ongoing issues with alcohol abuse."

    Predators' Austin Watson: Garners helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/19) Watson picked up an assist against the Golden Knights on Wednesday.

    Watson has points in three consecutive games and appears to have shaken off his month-long slump, in which he was held off the scoresheet in 16 straight outings. With the points once again piling up, the winger could challenge for an increased role in the top six, though the impending return of Kyle Turris (lower body) could hurt Watson's chances of getting more ice time.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Dishes assist, punches

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/19) Watson recorded an assist and five PIM during Tuesday's 7-2 rout over the Capitals.

    Watson has dropped the gloves in consecutive contests, while the helper brings him to six goals and nine points in 30 games, which significantly limits his fantasy value.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Struggling in December

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/18) Watson skated just 9:38 in Thursday's 2-0 loss to the Stars, and he extended his current pointless skid to seven games.

    After missing the first 18 games of the season due to a suspension, Watson made an immediate impact upon his return with seven points in nine contests. However, he's really struggled of late, with a single goal in 11 games since the start of December. It's quite possible that the foot injury he suffered earlier in the month is still giving him problems, which would account for his reduced ice time. Either way, it's probably best to stash him on your fantasy bench until he's back up to speed.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Ready to rock

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/11/18) Watson (foot) will play in Tuesday's home game versus the Senators, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

    Watson was spotted in a walking boot Monday and looked like a long shot to suit up, but he's ready to man the third line. Watson has five goals and seven points in 12 games. His goal scoring likely won't continue at this rate, but he adds a physical touch as well with 28 hits.
