Carlson recorded two assists, a power-play point and two shots during Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Ducks.

EDGE Analysis

Carlson has only been held off the scoresheet once in the last eight games and has posted 11 assists during that span. Tied with Ottawa's Thomas Chabot with 31 points for the defenseman scoring title, the 28-year-old is having a Norris Trophy-caliber season and needs to be a fixture in your lineups from here on out.

Carlson recorded three assists in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

All three of Carlson's helpers were of the primary variety, with his final assist setting up Brett Connelly for the game-winner midway through the third period, and he also added four shots, two blocked shots, two hits and a plus-4 rating in an impressive all-round performance. The blueliner now has 10 points (all assists) in his last 10 games, boosting his production on the season to five goals and 24 points through 22 games.

Carlson picked up two assists while logging 25:59 of ice time in Monday's 5-4 win over the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

Carlson has been fantastic this campaign, racking up five goals and 21 points in just 19 games. If he keeps up this pace, he'll easily surpass the career highs in goals (15) and assists (53) he set a season ago in 2018-19.

Carlson (lower body) will be in the lineup for Sunday's game against Arizona, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carlson missed just one game with his lower-body injury, a 2-1 loss to Columbus. The 28-year-old will give Washington a huge boost on both ends of the ice. Carlson has five goals and 18 points in 14 games this season.

Carlson (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against the Coyotes, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

A favorable home matchup against a road-weary Coyotes squad and the need to give youngsters Madison Bowey and Jonas Siegenthaler some playing time could move the Capitals to be cautious and hold out Carlson for a second-straight game, but fantasy owners will need to check back prior to puck drop for confirmation. The 28-year-old has five goals and 18 points in 14 games, so plug him into your lineups if he gets a sweater. However, those in daily formats may want to consider safer options given the uncertainty.

Carlson (lower body) was on the ice for Saturday's practice, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carlson was held out of Friday's loss to Columbus, but his presence on the ice could indicate he returns for Sunday's game against the visiting Coyotes. Keep an eye out for further confirmation, but it looks like the 28-year-old blueliner's absence won't last much longer.

Carlson (lower body) won't play Friday against Columbus, but could return to action Sunday against Arizona, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Carlson is reportedly dealing with a nagging issue, but it doesn't appear to be overly serious. The 28-year-old blueliner has picked up right where he left off last season, racking up five goals and 18 points through the first 14 games, making him one of the premier fantasy options at his position.

Carlson is dealing with a lower-body injury ahead of Friday's home game against the Blue Jackets. He's considered day-to-day.

EDGE Analysis

Carlson almost assuredly won't play in the upcoming contest, so the Capitals have called up both Aaron Ness and Jonas Siegenthaler as reinforcement options since Brooks Orpik (lower body) is injured as well. Of course, Carlson's status is the most impactful in the fantasy realm, as the stud offensive blueliner has amassed five goals and 13 assists over 14 games this season.

Carlson picked up two assists, one on the power play, while adding two shots, four blocked shots, two hits and a plus-1 rating in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

It as an impressive performance at both ends of the ice for Carlson, who now has 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) in 14 games to begin the season -- including a remarkable 10 points (one goal, nine assists) with the man advantage. The 28-year-old is coming off a career year, but he's somehow found another gear to kick off 2018-19.

Carlson recorded a goal, an assist, a plus-3 rating and four shots during Thursday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Carlson has four points in the first two games of the season and is well on his way to meeting the career-high 68 points he totaled last season. The 28-year-old should again be one of the top fantasy blueliners in 2018-19 so keep him in your lineups.
