  • Predators' Matt Irwin: Garners two-year extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/18) Irwin signed a two-year contract extension valued at $650,000 in 2018-19 and $700,000 in the subsequent year.

    Predators GM David Poile has placed an emphasis on solidifying his defensive corps for future seasons, granting extensions to Irwin, Yannick Weber and Anthony Bitetto on Tuesday. None of these players tilt the scales in the fantasy realm, but Irwin, for one, is a quality shot blocker who's managed a plus-17 rating since joining the Preds ahead of last season.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Rare assist in win over Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/17) Irwin recorded just his sixth point of the season with an assist Wednesday against the Blues.

    Irwin has been in and out of the lineup with regularity so far in December, having played in just six of a possible 11 games. As part of the Preds' third defensive pairing, he typically only sees 11-12 minutes of ice time whenever he does play, giving him very little fantasy value in most formats.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Watching from press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/17/17) Irwin served as a healthy scratch for the fourth time in five games Saturday against the Flames.

    Irwin seemed to have a regular spot in the lineup locked down early in the season, having played in 25 of the Preds' first 27 games. However, head coach Peter Laviolette now looks to be favouring a combination of Yannick Weber and Anthony Bitetto on his third defensive pairing. Irwin will surely be given another shot to earn his keep at some point, but for now, he remains the odd man out and has almost zero fantasy value as a result.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Rare assist in win over Hawks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/29/17) Irwin posted just his fourth point of the season with an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Blackhawks.

    As a third-pairing defender who averages under 14 minutes of ice time, Irwin's fantasy value is almost nonexistent in most standard formats. Scoring-wise, he's on pace for something similar to the 14 points he put up last season. In other words, there's not much to see here.

    Predators' Matt Irwin: Scores in Tuesday win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/8/17) Irwin scored a goal and registered six shots through 10:48 of ice time during Tuesday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

    While Irwin has developed into a steady, stay-at-home defenseman in the real game, his role limits his fantasy value considerably. He's averaging just 13:45 of ice time per contest, after all. The 29-year-old blueliner is off the grid in most setups.
