2018 Fantasy Outlook
Dowd appeared in 40 games with the Canucks last season as a fourth-line center, scoring three goals and averaging 11 minutes per game, but he was not re-signed. Instead, the veteran latched on with the Capitals on a one-year deal where he'll play a similar role at age 28. He's capable of winning faceoffs and provides some value as a big bodied player who shoots right, but won't be anything more than a depth filler. Dowd provides some jump and grit but otherwise isn't expected to make any significant contributions. Read Past Outlooks

Dowd recorded three assists in a 6-5 shootout victory against the Hurricanes on Friday.
ANALYSIS
The 28-year-old benefitted from playing with Alex Ovechkin for much of the night, as he assisted two of the captain's three goals. The three assists equaled one-third of the production Dowd had in the first 26 games this season, but if he keeps receiving minutes with Oveckin, Dowd could continue to produce like this and should be owned in all leagues. He has four goals and 12 points in 27 games this season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Dowd's first full NHL season took place in 2016-17, and he posted a respectable six goals and 22 points through 70 games in a depth role. The 27-year-old center took advantage of his power-play opportunities -- 1:34 of ice time per game -- with eight power-play points, and he could build on last season considering his career trajectory through the lower levels. Dowd registered 89 points over his last 133 games in the AHL, and he also improved offensively in each season at St. Cloud State during his collegiate career. Dowd's fantasy upside is still limited, but if he receives an opportunity to climb into a top-six role, his playmaking ability could click immediately.
