  • Capitals' Nic Dowd: Quietly productive

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/19) Dowd has tallied three goals, 10 points and a plus-7 rating in his last 16 games.

    Dowd has been very streaky in his first season in DC, but has provided some stability in the bottom six since his arrival. The 28-year-old forward is on pace to top his career high of 22 points set in 2016-17. However, the emergence of Travis Boyd could push him for ice time down the stretch, and his current 18.2 shooting percentage is well above his career average, so fantasy dividends could be more elusive in the second half of the season.

    Capitals' Nic Dowd: Posts season-high three assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/15/18) Dowd recorded three assists in a 6-5 shootout victory against the Hurricanes on Friday.

    The 28-year-old benefitted from playing with Alex Ovechkin for much of the night, as he assisted two of the captain's three goals. The three assists equaled one-third of the production Dowd had in the first 26 games this season, but if he keeps receiving minutes with Oveckin, Dowd could continue to produce like this and should be owned in all leagues. He has four goals and 12 points in 27 games this season.

    Capitals' Nic Dowd: Heating up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/2/18) Dowd tallied a goal, an assist, and a plus-2 rating during Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Ducks.

    Dowd has been very productive in recent outings with five of his seven points on the season coming in his last five games. Leaned upon heavily for his penalty-killing and defensive prowess, the 28-year-old is likely to cool off before too long but has put himself in a position to best a career-high 22 points set in 2016-17.

    Capitals' Nic Dowd: Tallies helper Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/18) Dowd registered an assist while logging 8:47 of ice time during Friday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.

    The assist snapped an eight-game scoring drought and gives Dowd three points in 18 games on the season. Injuries to Evgeny Kuznetsov (upper body) and T.J. Oshie (head) are keeping the door open for the 28-year-old to receive regular ice time, but he has competition from Travis Boyd for the fourth-line center role once the lineup returns to full health. Even without the competition, the lack of consistent production gives him very little fantasy value in most formats.

    Capitals' Nic Dowd: Snags helper in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/26/18) Dowd delivered a primary assist in Thursday's 4-1 road loss to the Oilers.

    Dowd roped a nifty backdoor pass to Andre Burakovsky for Washington's lone goal of the contest. The possession metrics from Dowd have been fantastic -- for instance, he's rocking a 54.9 Corsi For percentage -- but he's cemented in a bottom-six role to severely limit his fantasy prospects.
