  • Senators' Craig Anderson: Solid in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/22/18) Anderson made 29 saves for Ottawa in a 3-2 loss to Montreal on Saturday.

    Anderson would love a trade out of town. But it's hard to move a 37-year-old netminder coming off a queasy season. Anderson will play this season behind perhaps the least-talented team in the East this season. Do not over-invest.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Performs well in preseason outing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/20/18) Anderson made 16 saves on 17 shots while playing 30 minutes during a 4-1 preseason loss to the Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

    This performance is a great sign, but ultimately, the Senators empty roster leaves Anderson a bleak fantasy outlook. The 37-year-old went 23-25-6 with a .898 save percentage and 3.32 GAA last season, and it's very likely he posts similar numbers in 2018-19. Don't let any strong preseason outings allow Anderson to move up the draft board.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Set to start Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/18) Anderson will get the start in goal in Wednesday's preseason game against the Maple Leafs, Paul Hendrick of the Maple Leafs' official site reports.

    Anderson struggled last season, posting a 23-25-6 record while registering an ugly 3.32 GAA and .898 save percentage in 58 appearances. Things are unlikely to get better in 2018-19, as he'll be playing behind one of the least talented rosters in the NHL, so fantasy owners would be wise to avoid over drafting him based on name recognition alone.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Loses final start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) Anderson made just 19 saves during Friday's 4-0 loss to Pittsburgh.

    It's been a disappointing campaign for Anderson, as the Senators plummeted down the standings after being within a single goal of advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals last spring. His .898 save percentage and 3.32 GAA weren't helpful fantasy marks, and with Ottawa a rebuild candidate, his numbers could dip even further before they improve. Additionally, age isn't on the side of the 36-year-old netminder, either. For what it's worth, this was the first time since the 2005-06 season that Anderson finished with a sub-.900 save percentage -- barring a surprise appearance in Ottawa's season finale.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Slated to start Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/18) Anderson will tend the twine Friday against the Penguins in Pittsburgh, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Anderson stymied the Sabres in his last start, stopping 32 of the 34 shots he faced to notch his 23rd win of the season. Although he's played noticeably better on the road than at home this season, a 3.06 GAA and a .908 save percentage don't exactly spell fantasy gold in the cage. With the high-powered Penguins on deck -- the Pens are averaging 3.63 goals per game at home this season -- it may be best to steer clear of Anderson in his final start of 2017-18.
