Cam Fowler: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Check Wikipedia for sophomore slump and you'll find a pic of poor Fowler. Yes, he's a talent -- he's poised with the puck, a great skater and brilliant in transition. And he can put up the points. But 2011-12 was largely forgettable for the kid, as he finished with 11 fewer points than in his rookie season and his horrific plus-minus actually got worse (minus-25 to minus-28). That plus-minus saw him dropped in a lot of standard leagues last season since you just can't carry that kind of anchor on your squad. So what does our crystal ball say for 2012-13? His game, no matter how good its potential looks, desperately needs work. Otherwise, he'll be as one dimensional as Flat Stanley and there's only so much value in a purely offensive defender. Don't give up, though; he doesn't turn 21 until December and there's plenty of time for him to grow his own-zone game. If he does, he'll soon be top-20 on the list of keeper defensemen. But draft with caution -- or leave him to someone else -- in single-year formats, particularly if you count plus-minus. He could sink your ship ... and your season.
The 19-year-old Fowler had a productive rookie campaign with the Ducks, scoring 10 goals and adding 30 assists in 76 games played this past season. The undersized defenseman has the ability to rack up points at an alarming rate, however, Fowler's defense leaves a lot to be desired. For leagues that count plus/minus, Fowler's value takes a hit as a result of his team-low minus-25 rating in 2010-11. Regardless, Fowler is an up-and-coming fantasy star and should be targeted early in drafts. With some of the better scorers playing in front of him, Fowler should find it easy to post a high assist rate while building upon a successful rookie season.
Fowler appeared in 55 games for Windsor in 2009-10. During that time he scored eight goals (six on the power play), 57 assists and had a plus-38 rating. He helped the United States win the world junior title and played a leading role helping Windsor capture its second consecutive Memorial Cup. What does this mean for him in 2010-11? The 18-year-old has vision and puck-moving abilities that are beyond his years. Provided that he is not overwhelmed with the NHL pace, he might have a chance at making the Ducks' team. If he does, the game he played at Windsor might not translate as well due to learning the NHL game on the job, but he has a tremendous potential to be a fast study.
