  • Predators' Craig Smith: Notches three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/17) Smith scored a goal and added two helpers in a 7-1 win over the Canucks on Wednesday.

    Oddly, in his last four games Smith has notched two three-point outbursts. He has 20 points in 30 games this year, which is significant considering he only had 29 all of last season.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Collects three points in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/17) Smith recorded two goals and an assist during Monday's 5-3 win over Boston.

    This was the fourth multi-point showing through the past 12 games for Smith, and he has collected seven goals, five assists and 34 shots during the offensive surge. Skating with Kyle Turris and Kevin Fiala on a top-six line has been a fantasy boon for Smith, and the 28-year-old winger should be viewed as a rock-solid option in most formats while consistently scoring.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Multi-point effort in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/1/17) Smith scored his ninth goal of the season and added a helper in Thursday's loss to the Canucks.

    Smith was credited with six shots on goal and has been producing very steadily of late. The sniper has five goals and nine points in his last 10 games and has benefited from the arrival of Kyle Turris. Smith is playing on the first power-play unit and his consistent goal scoring of late makes him worth owning in the majority of fantasy settings.

    Predators' Craig Smith: On pace to crack 40-point plateau

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/26/17) Smith scored his eighth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes, giving him 10 points in his last 14 games.

    Don't look now, but Smith is currently on pace for a 42-point campaign after disappointing fantasy owners the previous two seasons with 29 and 37 points, respectively. Consistency has never been a hallmark of Smith's game, but he's showing at ton of it this year, currently on the second line with Kevin Fiala and the recently acquired Kyle Turris. Smith's fantasy value has taken a serious jump over the past few weeks, so go see if he is available on your waiver wire.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Nets fifth goal of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/17) Smith scored his fifth goal of the season and added a helper in Saturday's win over the Penguins.

    Smith has been lighting the lamp at a decent rate, but he's stuck on just two assists this season. He's now got a new center and power-play linemate in Kyle Turris, so it'll be interesting to see what that does for his production. The former Senator has a history of making players around him better, so look for Smith to build on his seven points through 16 contests in the coming games. He's a quality goal scorer who scores frequently enough to warrant a look in some fantasy leagues.
