  • Penguins' Kris Letang: Records season-high eight shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/17) Letang posted an assist, a plus-2 rating and eight shots on goal in a 4-3 loss against the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

    As should have been expected, Letang has been slow to find his game since returning from offseason neck surgery. Letang has been particularly poor in his own zone and currently possesses a career-worst minus-13 rating, but he's been heating up as of late. Letang has six assists in the last four contests with an even rating, and his eight shots Saturday were a season high. It might be frustrating at times because owners need more from Letang, but the key is to remain patient with this superstar blueliner.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Dishes out two assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/17) Letang contributed a pair of power-play assists in Thursday's win over the Islanders.

    Letang is riding a three-game point streak in which he's piled up five helpers. The 30-year-old hasn't scored since Oct.11, but it's hard to argue with his 23 points in 30 contests. While Letang's consistent offensive production makes him a fantasy asset, his minus-15 rating and lack of goal scoring is a tad disappointing. The power-play quarterback is still an automatic roll, as he's been held off the scoresheet just three times in his last 12 outings and logs monstrous minutes.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Collects assist against Bruins

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/17) Letang recorded a power-play assist, a shot on net, two blocked shots and four hits through 24:36 of ice time (1:46 with the man advantage) during Friday's 4-3 loss to Boston.

    The elephant in the room right now with Letang is his crippling minus-16 rating. Otherwise, it's been business as usual for the stalwart defender. Additionally, there are plenty of fantasy formats that don't include the category, and there is also oodles of time to correct the eyesore mark. Considering his body of work, fantasy owners probably shouldn't downgrade Letang too much. Still, he also needs to avoid injury, which has always been a tall task for the 30-year-old veteran.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Dishes out two assists against Nashville

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/17) Letang contributed a pair of assists in Saturday's shootout loss to the Predators.

    While his minus-14 rating isn't ideal, Letang has been a very productive offensive blueliner once again this season. The 30-year-old has collected 13 points through 19 contests, with over half of those coming with the man advantage. Letang has been putting plenty of pucks on net and has been tagged for 14 PIM, making him a pretty valuable fantasy rearguard. His consistent offense from the back end makes him worth starting every game.

    Penguins' Kris Letang: Picks up pair of helpers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/2/17) Letang garnered two assists in Wednesday's clash with Edmonton.

    While Letang continues to struggle to find the back of the net -- he has just one goal in 14 games -- the assists keep piling up, as he now has nine on the year, including four in the last three games. Not to be overlooked by fantasy owners, seven of the blueliner's helpers, and his lone goal, have come with the man advantage. The biggest knock on the 30-year-old is his plus/minus rating, which currently sits at minus-14.
