  • Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Scores shorty in win over Wings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/17) Johnson scored a shorthanded goal and registered four shots on net during Monday's 3-2 win over Detroit.

    Johnson has been deployed down the depth chart a little further than in years past, but it hasn't killed his production, as he's still recorded a respectable three goals, four points and 11 shots through six games. His 72-point campaign in 2014-15 now looks like it probably should be viewed as a statistical outlier, and fantasy expectations are best kept in check moving forward. Unless Johnson is elevated into a more prominent role, he's nothing more than a serviceable asset in most settings.

    Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Nets second goal of the season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/14/17) Johnson scored his second goal of the season in Saturday's 2-1 win over St. Louis.

    It came on the power play. Johnson doesn't have elite linemates like he had in the past, so it's hard to imagine that he'll deliver near-career marks. His owners should watch for a streak to develop and then work to see what return can be had in a trade. If Johnson's linemate limitations continue, you probably want him on someone else's squad, not yours.

    Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Returns to practice following injury scare

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/2/17) Johnson missed a portion of practice Monday after taking a puck to the face, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Injuries have limited Johnson to less than 70 games in each of the last two seasons, so fantasy owners were no doubt envisioning another shortened campaign when he initially left the ice. However, it appears the center is good to go and should be available against the Panthers on Friday.

    Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Trying to prevent injuries

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/2/17) Johnson revamped his workouts and diet over the summer and feels "10 times better" than he did last season when he believed he was stronger and better than ever, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

    Johnson took an ASPI (Applied Science & Performance Institute) body science test, a biomechanical evaluation used to root out structural imbalances, deficiencies and other things. "I changed everything," Johnson said. "I changed the way I ate, the way I trained, the way I moved. I think it feels a lot better." He also focused on strength training and hopes that he has built a base that will keep him healthy and on the ice a whole lot more than over the last few seasons. Johnson is poised for a serious rebound season. Snap him up.

    Lightning's Tyler Johnson: Reaches seven-year extension with Tampa

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/10/17) Johnson re-signed with the Lightning on a seven-year, $35 million deal, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    Johnson, who's appeared in 308 games for Tampa Bay across the past five years, racked up 19 goals and 45 points in 66 games last season while serving as the team's primary faceoff specialist. Although his numbers have been down since his stellar 2014 campaign, part of the blame goes to injury, considering Johnson has missed 29 games over the past two years. If he can simply stay healthy, there's optimism for some sort of bounce-back season.
