SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE
Josh Manson left last night’s game early with an upper body injury and he was doubtful to return. The extent of the injury is unknown and expect an update before their game Wednesday night. Josh Manson isn’t a main contributor but with three other defensemen injured he is much needed. He is only projected as the 134th best fantasy defenseman for the rest of the season. The line will not shift if he can not play.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
You can expect Josh Manson to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 9 projected fantasy points puts him at #103 behind Kevin Connauton and ahead of Erik Johnson. He has averaged 0.73 fantasy points in his past 123 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 0.68 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#141) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. Josh Manson is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #179 fantasy position rank.
