  • Senators' Craig Anderson: Finally dumps loss monkey off back

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/19) Anderson made 26 saves Saturday in a 4-3 overtime victory over Edmonton. It was his first win since Dec. 17 (1-13-1)

    The Senators are last in the Eastern Conference and has been eliminated from playoff contention. But they celebrated like it was a playoff victory. Anderson must be glad to get the weight of the loss monkey off his back, but he's still a massive fantasy risk. Continue to avoid.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Back in goal Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/19) Anderson will start in goal Saturday afternoon against host Edmonton.

    Anderson has lost 14 straight games dating back to Dec. 17. He'd been a valuable commodity in deep season-long leagues if for no other reason than him entering the season with plenty of job security, but the Senators ended up striking a deal with the Canucks for Anders Nilsson and Ottawa hosted a firesale, doing away with several big-name forwards to the detriment of its goalies. At any rate, the 35-year-old should hunker down and give it his all against an Oilers club with a home record of 17-17-2 this season.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Surrenders five goals to Flames

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/19) Anderson stopped 31 of 36 shots in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Flames.

    Taking on the top home offense in the league proved too difficult for Anderson, who hasn't been in the win column since Dec. 17 (0-13-1 in 15 appearances over that span). Anderson's record fell to 14-25-4 for the season, with a 3.55 GAA and a .902 save percentage. The Senators next travel to Edmonton, but it's virtually impossible to recommend starting either of Anderson or Anders Nilsson at this point in the season.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Tending twine Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/19) Anderson will patrol the blue paint against the Flames on the road Thursday.

    Anderson appears to have conceded the starting job to Anders Nilsson, which shouldn't come as a surprise considering the 37-year-old Anderson is bogged down in a 14-game losing streak during which he's posted a 3.59 GAA and .893 save percentage. The netminder is under contract for one more season at a $4.75 million cap hit, which will be a big contract for the Senators to eat if he is in fact serving as the No. 2.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Losing streak reaches 13

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/12/19) Anderson stopped 33 of 36 shots Monday, but it again wasn't enough in a 3-2 loss to Philadelphia.

    Anderson actually played fairly well in this one, but the Senators' now-punchless offense means that he pretty much has to be perfect to get a positive result, and that again didn't happen. With Ottawa getting so few pucks to the net on offense, the pressure has been dialed up to 11 on Anderson and the defense, and that's not a great situation for your fantasy team.
