  • Senators' Craig Anderson: Loses to Lightning

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/18) Anderson allowed four goals on 24 shots during Thursday's 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

    While Anderson continues to post underwhelming numbers, it's difficult to place too much blame on him for Thursday's result. The Lightning are atop the standings and the highest-scoring team in the league, so it was a notable mismatch. Unfortunately, despite Anderson's respectable play most nights, it's becoming exceedingly difficult to trust him against the majority of opponents. There's also potential for things to become worse if Ottawa deals talent before the trade deadline.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Makes 36 saves in loss to Preds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Anderson allowed five goals on 41 shots during Monday's 5-2 loss to Nashville.

    The veteran has now allowed three goals or more in 12 of his past 16 appearances for eight wins, a .910 save percentage and 3.44 GAA. While the eight victories are helpful, continuing to pile up wins with a below-average save percentage will probably prove difficult, and there's also a strong chance the Senators unload talent ahead of the trade deadline. Anderson should continue to receive the bulk of starts for Ottawa, and his huge workload does carry value in deeper settings. However, pinpointing when he's going to have a strong performance could prove extra challenging.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Defending cage Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/18) Anderson will tend the twine against the Predators on Monday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Anderson will be making his seventh consecutive appearance between the pipes. In his previous six outings, the netminder has earned a 4-0-0 record, despite a subpar 3.19 GAA. Depending on format, some owners will be happy with the wins, regardless of how many the Illinois native allows to find the back of the net -- although the high number of goals allowed makes him a riskier option in the majority of fantasy contests.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Turns aside 35 shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/18) Anderson allowed three goals on 38 shots in a 6-3 victory over the Rangers on Saturday.

    It's been a really rough season for Anderson, but he continues to trend in the right direction. He is 5-2-0 with a .921 save percentage in his last seven games. Anderson has now also won five straight decisions. Salvaging this season as he appears to be doing is the best Anderson owners can hope for at this point.

    Senators' Craig Anderson: Starting in net Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Anderson will guard the home net Saturday against the Rangers.

    Anderson owns a 4-0-0 record over his last six appearances, but sandwiched in the middle was an outing in which he was yanked after allowing three goals on 10 shots. His last two efforts -- one of which came in relief -- have been particularly impressive, and he will attempt to build off of them Saturday against a Rangers team that's in sell mode as the trade deadline approaches.
