  • Predators' Craig Smith: Revives career in 2017-18

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/19/18) Smith recorded 51 points in 79 games in 2017-18, including a career-high 14 points on the power play.

    After three consecutive seasons of declining offensive totals, Smith took a major step forward this year, falling just one point shy of the career-best 52 points he posted back in 2013-14. A huge part of Smith's success this season was the chemistry he enjoyed with Kyle Turris and Kevin Fiala on the team's second line, so there's a good chance coach Peter Laviolette will look to stick with that same line combination next season. Don't overlook the 28-year-old Smith at the draft table come October.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Assists OT winner

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/30/18) Smith picked up the primary assist on Kevin Fiala's winning goal in the second overtime of Sunday's win over Winnipeg.

    The former Wisconsin Badger used his speed to beat the defender wide before feeding Fiala in front of the net, who ended the game with a sweet backhand finish. Smith now has just three points in eight postseason games, despite the fact that he's played a prominent role on the power play.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Pots two goals in Thursday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/18) Smith recorded two goals -- one on the power play -- to go with five shots during Thursday's 4-3 road win against the Capitals.

    The markers give the 28-year-old winger a new career high in goals with 25, and he's also hit the 50-point threshold for the second time in his career. Smith is meshing well with Kyle Turris on the second line and could be a sneaky play to consider in daily formats as the season winds down given that he has four goals and six points in his last five games.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Inching closer to 50-point plateau

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/30/18) Smith snapped a five-game pointless streak with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Sharks.

    Now at 46 points (22 goals, 24 assists), Smith will need a big push heading into the final week of the regular season in order to crack the 50-point mark for just the second time in his career. Either way, it's been a very positive turnaround season for Smith, who finished with just 29 points a year ago.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Dishing frequently

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/18) Smith notched his second straight two-assist performance Friday in a win over the Avalanche.

    The Wisconsin native bagged two apples against the Coyotes on Thursday, and he replicated the effort in this playoff-clinching victory over the Avalanche. Smith -- who is up to 21 goals and 23 assists with 11 regular-season games remaining -- is a dangerous offensive contributor given that he's equally adept at scoring and setting up goals all the same. You could certainly do worse than using Smith as a No. 3 forward in the fantasy playoffs.
