Colin Wilson is likely to line up on Colorado's third line.

It seems that Avs' GM Joe Sakic views Wilson as an excellent third-line player at either center or wing. That's not going to do wonders for his fantasy value. We would wait and see if Wilson is looking at a bottom-six assignment or if he can elevate his game enough to land on the Avs' second line before investing anything in him.

The Nashville Predators have dealt Colin Wilson to Colorado for a fourth round pick in 2019.

The Predators were hoping that Wilson would be their top center when they drafted him seventh overall in 2008 but that never came to be and they now get little in return for the 27-year-old. Wilson had 12 goals and 23 assists in the regular season after a six goal, 24 point effort the previous season. He had a pair of goals and two assists in 12 playoff games during the Preds run to the Cup Final. His best season was 42 points so look for Wilson to be a bottom-two center in Colorado next season. He is not worth drafting.
