Preds' Josi Scores Third Goal

News: Roman Josi scored his third goal of the season, added an assist, and logged 27:20 of ice time in Saturday's overtime win over the Wild.
Analysis: Roman Josi now has four goals and 17 points in 31 games, to go with a plus-10 rating. The 24-year-old logs heavy minutes in Nashville and is money alongside Shea Weber on the top defensive pairing and first power-play unit. The youngster should hit the 10-goal and 40-point mark for the second straight season.

Preds' Josi Heating Up

News: Roman Josi recorded an assist during Saturday's 2-1 win over Columbus. It was his 12th point of the season and second in as many games.
Analysis: After being held off the scoresheet in 10 of his first 12 games, Roman Josi has really come alive over the past few weeks with nine points in his last 11 contests. Unsurprisingly, Josi's productivity seems to rise and fall in tandem with that of his blue line partner Shea Weber, who also has nine points in his last 11 games. Bottom line, as long as Josi continues to be paired with Weber, and is seeing his usual 25+ minutes of ice time per night, there is no reason to take him out of your starting lineup.

Preds' Josi Collects Three Points

News: Roman Josi scored his first goal in more than a month -- a power-play tally -- and added two helpers in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Despite a pretty quiet start to the year, Roman Josi's now pulled his numbers right into the range that's expected from him -- eight points in 16 games. We're still looking for a little more shooting -- and of course scoring -- from the Swiss blueliner, but it's hard to complain about his season line so far despite some inconsistency.

Josi Chipping In On Offense For Preds

News: Roman Josi registered an assist for the second straight game during Saturday's 2-1 win over St. Louis. He now has five points in 14 games on the season.
Analysis: Given the amount of ice time he sees (usually 25-26 minutes per game), Roman Josi should have more fantasy appeal than he does, but keep in mind the Preds are still one of the lowest-scoring teams in the NHL at just 2.43 goals per game (23rd in the league). That said, after notching just three points in his first 12 games, it looks like Josi is finally starting to heat up, so take advantage while the point streak lasts.

Preds' Josi Tallies Two Helpers

News: Roman Josi picked up two assists -- his first and second of the season -- in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Oilers. He also skated to a plus-2 rating and put a season-high five shots on goal.
Analysis: Roman Josi's owners have been itching to see more out of Shea Weber's defense partner (both at even strength and on the man advantage), so it was nice that Josi tripled his point total in this one. He now has a goal, two assists and a plus-5 rating with no PIM in nine games this year.

Preds' Josi Scores Goal, Logs 23:37 Of ice Time

News: Roman Josi scored his first goal of the season, recorded a plus-4 rating, and logged a game-high 23:37 of ice time in Saturday's win over Dallas.
Analysis: Roman Josi has been lining up beside Shea Weber on the team's top defensive pairing and top power-play unit, making him a hot fantasy commodity. Josi, who recorded a career-high 13 goals and 40 points last season, is likely to have another successful fantasy campaign in 2014-15. You can't go wrong with a 24-year-old stud who is logging 23-28 minutes of ice time and playing with one of the best blueliners in the game.

Preds' Josi Logging Heavy Minutes In Preseason

News: Roman Josi saw 24:50 in ice time -- including over five minutes on the power play -- in Saturday's 3-2 preseason loss to Columbus. He did not factor into the scoring, but had three shots on goal and five blocked shots.
Analysis: Last season, Roman Josi was promoted to the Preds' top defensive pairing alongside Shea Weber and responded with a career-best 40 points (13 goals, 27 assists) in 72 games. Josi was given much more on-ice responsibility last season and finished just behind Weber in total ice time, averaging 26:25 per game. He was also a staple on the power play, where he racked up 13 points and averaged 3:05 per game in ice time. This season, Josi's emergence as a strong two-way defenseman should continue, helped along by the Preds' stronger, deeper lineup. Feel free to target Josi in the middle to later rounds of your drafts.

Preds' Josi Gets Game-Winner Sunday

News: Roman Josi scored the game-winning goal and chipped in an assist in Sunday's season finale against the Wild.
Analysis: Seth Jones received most of the publicity coming into the season among the Preds' young blueliners, but Roman Josi proved to be the more valuable of the two. He amassed 13 goals and 27 assists in 72 games.

Josi Pots Goal For Preds On Saturday

News: Roman Josi supplied his 12th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Sharks.
Analysis: The 23-year-old has enjoyed a nice breakout season on a defensive pairing with Shea Weber, compiling 37 points in 68 games. He seems to be closing the campaign on a particularly strong note, accumulating three goals and eight assists over his last 13 games. Even bigger things could be in store for Roman Josi in 2014-15.

Preds' Josi Scores Two

News: Roman Josi put home a pair of goals and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to Colorado.
Analysis: His two tallies both came in the first half of the first period, giving the Preds a 2-0 lead that they couldn't make hold up. Though he now has a very fine (for a defenseman) 11 goals on the year, Roman Josi hadn't scored since Feb. 27 -- Nashville's first game back from the Olympics.

Josi Tallies Three Assists Friday

News: Roman Josi assisted on all three Predators goals during their 3-2 win over the Blackhawks on Friday.
Analysis: Roman Josi had gone five-straight games without registering a single point and now has four assists in his last two games. It's hardly a hot streak right now, but considering his 27 points in 56 games is a career high, it's not to bad actually.

Preds' Josi Building On Career Season

News: Roman Josi's assist during Tuesday's 4-1 win over Buffalo was his 27th point of the season, a career high.
Analysis: Roman Josi continues to log heavy minutes on the Preds' top blue-line tandem with Shea Weber, averaging 26:25 per night. He also ranks second on the team in blocked shots (118) and fifth in shots on goal (144), making him a very well-rounded fantasy defenseman option. He's nowhere near elite status at this point, however he's showing signs that he could be knocking on the door in another 2-3 seasons, especially if he continues under Weber's tutelage. Use accordingly.

Preds' Josi Continues To Rip It Up

News: Roman Josi has 11 points in his last 10 games after he scored his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's shootout win over the Blues.
Analysis: He has salvaged his season after a smelly start and is now one of the most productive defenders currently on the ice. Use accordingly.

Josi On Preds' Scoresheet Again

News: Roman Josi notched an assist in Friday's overtime win over New Jersey, giving him four points in the last four games.
Analysis: Roman Josi is a ubiquitous fixture on Nahsville's ice and his point shot deflected off a body and rolled to David Legwand for the equalizer. Josi is producing a solid clip save for his plus-minus rating, sitting with 24 points through 46 games. He's not going to be confused with Shea Weber anytime soon, but a 40-point season is attainable.

Predators' Josi Tallies Two Points

News: Roman Josi scored a goal and added an assist against the Stars on Monday.
Analysis: Roman Josi has six points in his last four games, giving him 20 on the season. He's still minus-12 on the year, but there's good news on that front, as Josi's gone plus-6 in his last three games.

Preds' Josi: Three-Game Streak

News: Roman Josi's point streak now stands at three games and four points (one goal, three assists) after he scored a goal and added an assist Saturday night against the Avalanche.
Analysis: This has been a long time coming -- he started slower than molasses in January. But he has six points in his last nine games and it appears there's hope after all.

Preds' Josi Scores Shootout Winner

News: Roman Josi picked up a power-play assist and scored the game-winner in the shootout Thursday against Philadelphia.
Analysis: He beat Steve Mason in the seventh round of the skills competition, but fantasy owners' interest is more sharply aroused by the fact that Roman Josi has collected power-play assists in consecutive games. Ten of his 16 points of the year have come with the man advantage, but Josi's minus-17 rating takes a lot of the wind out of those sails.

Josi Sparks Preds To Victory

News: Roman Josi ended a five-game pointless drought with a power-play goal during Monday's 6-4 win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: With 12 points in 30 games so far this season, Roman Josi continues to enjoy his role on the Preds' first defensive pairing alongside Shea Weber. As such, he regularly sees upwards of 29 minutes of ice time per game, with a good chunk of that coming on the power play. The Preds are a below-average team offensively, so Josi won't produce as much as other blueliners playing comparable minutes, but he'll certainly continue to get his chances. Feel free to deploy him on a regular basis in deeper fantasy formats.

Preds' Josi: Offensive Surge In Last Four Games

News: Roman Josi's power-play goal Saturday stretched his point streak to four games and five points, including two goals.
Analysis: He only has 10 points this season -- five in this last four games, but just five before that in his first 19 games. His current surge seems real. We hope you've taken advantage.

Preds' Josi: Two Points Including Season's First Goal

News: Roman Josi scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's loss to the Capitals. He has three points in his last three games.
Analysis: Is he finally turning the corner? We sure hope so -- he only has seven points in 20 games this season. This little burst makes him a decent activation right now; he's worth the risk.

Josi Skating Monster Minutes For Preds

News: Roman Josi skated a whopping 32:26 - including 5:33 on the power play - during Saturday's OT loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: With defensive stud Shea Weber still out with an eye injury, Roman Josi should continue to be the main man on the Preds' blue line for the time being. The 23-year-old still doesn't score much, but he's certainly seeing lots of opportunities. If you've been stashing him on your fantasy bench, now might be the time to give him a start or two.

Preds' Josi Returns To Lineup Following Concussion

News: Roman Josi returned to the lineup Thursday after missing 10 games with a concussion. He saw 22:41 of ice time on the Preds' second defensive pairing with Kevin Klein, but finished the game with zero points, two shots on goal and a minus-1 rating.
Analysis: Roman Josi's main source of fantasy value heading into this season was his expected pairing with defensive stud Shea Weber on the first unit. Although that's how things started out for Josi, in his absence the Preds began using rookie Seth Jones alongside Weber, and the pair has since discovered considerable chemistry. At this point, it's safe to say Josi will likely not be playing with Weber anytime soon, which results in his fantasy value taking a significant tick downward.

Preds' Josi Expected To Return Thursday

News: Roman Josi (concussion) is expected to return Thursday against the Coyotes, Mike Organ of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Coach Barry Trotz said Roman Josi would be used in the second or third defensive pairing Thursday, taking minutes away from Victor Bartley or Ryan Ellis. Josi was cleared for practice Monday and has reportedly looked good while practicing the past two days, but his play during games will determine when or if he gets back to the top perch alongside Shea Weber.

Preds' Josi Cleared For Contact

News: Roman Josi (concussion) has been cleared for contact and will be eased back into action during the Predators' upcoming seven-game road trip, the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: It sounds like Roman Josi will suit up Thursday in Phoenix, though his ice time will likely be limited. Assuming no setbacks, the third-year pro should be back at full strength by the end of the lengthy road trip. Predators head coach Barry Trotz said that he still hasn't decided whether Josi will skate on the second or third defensive pairing.

Preds' Josi Skates With Team Thursday

News: Roman Josi (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday's morning skate, Josh Cooper of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: It was the first time Roman Josi had been able to skate with the team since suffering the concussion Oct. 4, suggesting that he's steadily progressing through the league protocol. Josi could receive clearance for full-contact work in the upcoming days if he continues to experience no setbacks while skating with the team.
