2018 Fantasy Outlook
Greene's value comes primarily in formats that value blocked shots, as he ranked fourth in the NHL with 188 of those last season. New Jersey's captain is an underwhelming fantasy asset otherwise, having racked up exactly 13 points in each of the past three seasons. Greene turns 36 in October, so he's more likely to trend even further down if anything. He's also been a rating anchor over the past two seasons with a combined mark of minus-25. Read Past Outlooks

Offensive output climbs at 36

Greene went scoreless with a minus-2 rating in Saturday's season finale against Florida, finishing the season with five goals, 20 assists and a minus-9 rating in 82 games.
ANALYSIS
The 36-year-old Greene was surprisingly effective offensively, notching 25 points after finishing with exactly 13 in each of the previous three campaigns. His production still wasn't enough to make him relevant in most formats, and the Devils' captain will likely regress next season, when he plays out the final year of a contract with a $5 million AAV.

Greene was a fantasy non-factor last year, posting exactly four goals and nine assists for the second consecutive campaign while adding just eight PIM and a career-worst minus-16 rating. The 34-year-old Michigan native will still be asked to eat a lot of minutes on the inexperienced New Jersey blue line, but his career average of .28 points per game and lack of notable contribution in other categories make him a tough sell even when compared to other options on his own team.
Just like in 2014-15, Greene appeared in all 82 games and led the Devils in ice time at 22:57 per contest last season. While the veteran stay-at-home defenseman is a rock on the blue line, his skills don’t translate well to fantasy. His positive rating in each of the last five seasons is another asset Greene brings to the table, but the 33-year-old’s point total has declined in two consecutive seasons, so it’s unwise to expect much of an improvement on last season’s four goals and nine assists.
The former Miami University star signed a 5-year, $25 million extension in late July, likely keeping the veteran with the Devils until the end of his career. Greene has evolved into the team’s most reliable defensive player and had his best offensive season since 2010, notching 32 points and a career-high eight goals, including three game-winners. Greene can make an impact offensively, but he will have several inconsistent stretches where he struggles, as evidenced by one point in the season’s final 12 games. Greene will be tasked with shutting down the opposition’s top scorers as his primary assignment, not creating offense. He’s a solid player, just not terribly consistent offensively.
Greene has transformed himself into the team's workhorse on the blue line. His offensive output was streaky last season, as he finished with 16 points after grabbing eight in a six-game stretch in early February. Greene will see a good amount of power play time as part of the 23-25 minutes he will log a night against the opposition's top lines. Greene's offensive upside is limited, but he can be counted on for 20-25 points from the team's blue line.
Andy Greene’s 37-point season from 2009-2010 is a distant memory and the veteran has posted 39 points in the last two seasons combined. However, Greene did miss 26 games last season due to injury. Greene has taken on more a defensive role for the Devils and posted just one power play point out of last season’s 16 total points. With the Devils using Marek Zidlicky and Ilya Kovalchuk to man the point on the power play, Greene probably will post in the range of 25 points, with a few goals, if he plays a full season.
Greene was a major victim of New Jersey's early-season implosion in 2010-11, as his plus-minus rating consistently hovered around the minus-25 range all year long. Nonetheless, Greene inked a four-year contract in July to remain the team's top offensive threat from the blue line. He's two years removed from a 37-point campaign and will see significant power-play time, as well as minutes against the opposition's top-six forwards. Greene is a potential value pick in fantasy drafts, especially for those playing in deeper leagues.
Greene burst onto the scene last season after several campaigns of unfulfilled promise, notching 37 points in 78 games. These are the numbers the Devils were expecting from Greene following an oustanding college campaign with Miami with 15 power play points. He won't score many goals but he should assume the point on the first power play unit and approach 30 points. Draft accordingly.
Greene had a sub-par offensive season but missed substantial time with a hand injury. The Devils had hoped he would step up more offensively when given a larger role but it hasn't happened. He's a third-pairing defenseman and has more value to the Devils than to your fantasy roster.
et us preface this by apologizing to anyone who took a late flier on Greene based on what may or may have not been written in last year's edition of this preview. Greene was easily one of the team's biggest disappointments last season, failing to produce in an expanded role after Brian Rafalski bolted for Detroit. Greene had chances to produce, but managed only 10 points. Until he shows he can be consistent, he's not worth a look.

Greene may very well be the next in a long line of undrafted players who have found success with the Devils. Greene played four full seasons at Miami of Ohio and he is equally polished in both the offensive and defensive zones. He played very well for New Jersey in the playoffs and he should have a spot on this year's team.
