  • Red Wings' Nick Jensen: Solid but unspectacular campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/18) Jensen finished with 15 assists as his entire point total through 81 games this season.

    While your casual fantasy owner likely isn't familiar with Jensen, he's proven to be a solid two-way presence for the Red Wings. He also picked up 71 hits and 88 blocked shots in 2017-18 and was a true bargain at $812,500. The Minnesota native will be an unrestricted free agent after one more season in The Motor City.

    Red Wings' Nick Jensen: Starting to heat up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/18) Jensen has picked up the offensive pace with two assists over the last three games.

    The Minnesota native has averaged 19:37 of ice time since March 22, when news broke that allied defenseman Mike Green (back) would undergo cervical spine surgery and be sidelined for the rest of the season. Jensen doesn't hold a candle to Green in the attacking zone, but he's still a decent playmaker and Detroit is flush with talented forwards with whom he can connect from the blue line.

    Red Wings' Nick Jensen: Manages rare two-point effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/11/18) Jensen produced a pair of even-strength assists in Sunday's 5-4 overtime road win over the Capitals.

    This snapped a seven-game point drought for Jensen, and now he's finally at double-digits with 11 assists through 53 games. An industrious blueliner, Jensen has yet to fine twine this season, but it's safe to deduce that his ownership levels are extremely low since he's hovering around 15 minutes of ice time and barely averaging over one shot per game.

    Red Wings' Nick Jensen: Nails down ninth assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/23/18) Jensen contributed a secondary assist in Monday's 3-0 road win over the Devils.

    The Red Wings and fantasy owners alike will take what they can get from Jensen. Selected in the fifth round in 2009, the right-handed defenseman has the requisite combination of speed and skill to make a noticeable own-zone impact. However, with nine helpers representing his point total through 45 games, Jensen is best viewed as waiver fodder in most fantasy settings.

    Red Wings' Nick Jensen: Mired in deep slump

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/31/17) Jensen has just one point (a power-play assist) since the beginning of December, spanning 11 games.

    To be fair, Jensen is only in his second NHL campaign, and he's attempting to assert himself on a Detroit team that barely gets any offense from the blue line. He does have some offensive flair to his game -- as evidenced by his output of 13 points in 49 games with the Wings last season -- but Jensen is more of a stay-at-home type at this juncture.
