The 27-year-old defenseman sports a rock-solid 1.74 points and 8.23 shots per 60 minutes, and with an average of 24:31 of ice time per contest, he projects to remain a high-end contributor in all fantasy settings.
2018-03-28 update Josi registered a goal and three shots on net through 23:53 of ice time (3:00 with the man advantage) during Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win against Minnesota.
2018-03-10 analysis This suggests that the power-play quarterback could be available for the evening's home contest against the Devils. Josi reportedly reprised his role on the top pair with Ryan Ellis in the a.m. session. We still recommend checking back closer to warmups to be sure that the Swiss blueliner will play after missing the past four games. An NHL.com game preview corroborates the notion that Josi's ready to return from a four-game injury layoff, as he participated in the entire morning skate. As the owner of 10 goals and 34 assists through 60 games, the Swiss defenseman is a serious threat in the attacking zone, but the fun doesn't stop there as he's also managed a plus-14 rating to go along with 95 blocked shots. There's bound to b

His presence on the ice during Thursday's morning skate was definitely a step in the right direction in his recovery, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the Swiss blueliner return as soon as Saturday against

2018-03-02 analysis Josi has been white-hot lately, racking up one goal and 11 assists in the last six contests. The Preds have a comfortable six-point lead in the Central Division and a two-point lead in the Western Conference, so they see the importance of keeping their stars fresh. Anthony Bitetto will slot into the lineup in his place.

2018-02-23 analysis This was the third consecutive multi-point showing for Josi, and he's now up to 10 goals, 28 assists, 16 power-play points and 202 shots for the campaign. He's locked into a huge role for the surging Predators, so fantasy owners can continue to start Josi confidently in all settings.
2018-02-23 update Josi registered two assists through 23:45 of ice time (1:45 with the man advantage) during Thursday's 7-1 rout of the Sharks.
2018-02-20 analysis Josi's 34 points are tied for 17th among all blueliners, and Monday's two power-play markers have him up to six goals and 10 assists with the man advantage. It's also worth noting that his 196 shots are second to only Brent Burns among defensemen in the league, and Josi's 3.56 shots per game is a significant improvement on last season's career-best 3.01 mark. Continue to view the Swiss native as a That's four points in two nights for the talented blueliner. With 36 points through 59 team games (56 appearances), Josi has himself back on pace for a third career 50-point campaign after finishing painfully close with 49 last season.
2018-02-20 update Josi scored a goal and added an assist -- both on the power play -- during Monday's 5-2 win over Ottawa. Josi dished out two helpers and added four shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Detroit.

2018-02-20 update Josi scored a goal and added an assist -- both on the power play -- during Monday's 5-2 win over Ottawa.
2018-02-04 analysis Now with 29 points in 47 games, Josi remains on track for something resembling the 12-goal, 49-point campaign he posted last season. Josi was once considered to be the top offensive blueliner for the Preds following the departure of Shea Weber, but he's now really the No. 2 option behind P.K. Subban. He's still not a bad option from a fantasy perspective, but Josi's stock has dropped to the point
2018-02-04 update Josi snapped a three-game pointless skid with a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Rangers.
2017-12-26 analysis There's no reason for fantasy owners to panic -- with 21 points in 32 games, the Predators' first-year captain remains on pace for another season of at least 50 points, so he's still well within expectations. Josi still leads the Preds in average ice time per game (25:14) and he's second in shots on goal (112), all of which suggest he should return to his high-scoring ways before too long. Keep hi
2017-12-26 update Josi entered the holiday break riding a four-game point drought, his longest of the season.
2017-12-06 analysis Only six of Josi's 26 shifts came in the third period, but don't be alarmed -- the Preds were up 5-0 after two, so coach Peter Laviolette probably decided to give his team captain a breather during the final frame. Josi is now up to 19 points in 25 games, putting him on pace to surpass the career-high 61 points he posted two seasons ago. He remains one of fantasy hockey's elite defensemen, and sho
2017-12-06 update Josi registered a power-play assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Stars. However, his ice time was a season-low 18:46.
2017-11-20 analysis The power-play apples extended Josi to a four-game point streak, and he now has five goals and nine assists through 17 contests for the season. He's also averaging an impressive 4.0 shots per outing. Continue to start Josi confidently in all settings, as he's already well on his way to another excellent fantasy campaign.
2017-11-20 update Josi recorded two power-play assists, five shots through 23:50 of ice time during Monday's 5-3 win over Winnipeg.
2017-11-19 analysis Josi has now extended his point streak to three games and is up to 12 points (five goals) through 16 contests. He's having a strong start to the season and is an automatic roll whenever the Predators are in action. Josi plays over 20 minutes a night and helps anchor the top power-play unit, making him the ideal fantasy blueliner.
2017-11-19 update Josi collected two assists in Saturday's win over the Avalanche.
2017-11-15 analysis Josi had been seeing monster ice time the previous three games -- in the 26-29 minute range -- so given the lopsided score, it could be just that coach Peter Laviolette decided to give his stud defenseman a bit of a breather. There was no mention of any injury following the game, so we're assuming all is good with the Preds' captain until we hear otherwise. Continue to start him with confidence.
2017-11-15 update Josi snapped a three-game pointless streak with an assist during Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Capitals. However, he skated a season-low 19:22, far less than his season average of 25:22.
2017-11-04 analysis Josi came up huge for daily fantasy players on this two-game slate, and now the sensational blueliner is up to four goals and just as many helpers through 10 games. Given the power-play quarterback's skill set that's quite conducive to fantasy points, in addition to his being a virtual lock for 25-plus minutes per game, Josi qualifies as an elite option at a position that's often tough to fill in
2017-11-04 update Josi collected a goal and an assist in Friday's 5-3 road win over the Ducks.
2017-10-25 analysis The Swiss national did have a minus-2 rating in the contest, but that mark was easily offset by his gaudy offensive contributions. Better yet, Josi looks healthy after missing three games with a lower-body injury earlier in the month. Keep him active in all settings.
2017-10-25 update Josi picked up two power-play points -- a goal and an assist -- to supplement four blocked shots over 27 minutes of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Flames.
2017-10-18 analysis The 27-year-old rearguard has missed Nashville's last three contests due to a lower-body injury, but he'll return to his usual role skating on the Predators' second pairing and top power-play unit against Colorado. Josi's gone scoreless in two games this season, but he's already fired seven shots on goal while averaging a whopping 25:22 of ice time per match. Josi made a gargantuan impact in his return from a 10-day absence, scoring what ended up being the game-winning goal with the extra man in the second period while helping Nashville hold the opposition to just 21 shots. The latter accomplishment likely had something to do with playing an overmatched Avalanche club, but it still represented a major improvement after the team allowed at least 30 shot
2017-10-18 update Josi (lower body) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports. Josi (lower body) recorded a power-play goal and an assist along with seven shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Colorado.
2017-10-17 analysis Josi was slated to play Saturday's contest but was pulled at the last second, making his potential return Tuesday seem all the more likely after a three-game absence. Nothing is guaranteed at this point though, so wary fantasy owners will want to check back in prior to puck drop to ensure that the Predators' captain is in the lineup.
