Cam Atkinson scored an unassisted goal at the 18:10 mark of the first, but it was not enough as the Blue Jackets lost 4-3 to the Panthers Saturday night.

Atkinson has scored a goal in every other game in his last six attempts, which has made him a little less than consistent. Still, this was his 21st goal of the season and 41st point so players can be hopeful that he will start stringing points together with greater regularity in the coming games.
Jan 14 - 10:49 PM

Cam Atkinson scored his 20th goal of the season in Tuesday's game against Carolina.

Atkinson scored less than two minutes into the first period to give his team a 1-0 lead. Unfortunately for the Blue Jackets, they ended up losing the game 5-3. Atkinson was one of the biggest snubs from the All-Star Game rosters that were unveiled today. Not many people expected him to produce at this clip, but he's shown that he can be a solid fantasy producer on a regular basis. The 27-year-old has 40 points in 40 games this season.
Jan 10 - 10:27 PM

Cam Atkinson found the back of the net in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

The Blue Jackets' winning streak has now hit an incredible 16 games. Atkinson opened the scoring at the 12:32 mark of the first period. He's been one of the biggest surprises of the 2016-17 season, as he's accumulated 18 goals and 38 points in 36 games this season. William Karlsson and Nick Foligno also scored for the Blue Jackets.
Jan 3 - 10:22 PM

Cam Atkinson has been on fire with 29 points in his last 23 games.

Atkinson scored twice on Saturday to lead Columbus to a 4-2 win as the Blue Jackets increased their win streak to 15 games. Atkinson has 17 goals and 37 points in 35 games which is hugely impressive but what makes it moreso is that he is coming off back-to-back 40 point seasons. He likely was not drafted in most pools but has been one of the best, if not the best, waiver wire pickups this season.
Jan 1 - 8:37 AM

Cam Atkinson is fine to play Thursday night.

He's on pace to score 90 points this season, which would obliterate his career-high of 53. He's a must-start in all fantasy leagues. The Blue Jackets have won 10 games in a row.
