2020 Fantasy Outlook
Prior to the opening of free agency, Blackwood was the presumptive No. 1 netminder for the Devils after posting a 22-14-8 record with a 2.77 GAA and three shutouts in 47 outings last year. However, the addition of free agent Corey Crawford brings the youngster's role into doubt, as he will now have to earn the starting gig during training camp. Still, the injury woes for Crawford and the prospect of a condensed schedule could create opportunities for Blackwood to see close to 40 starts in 2020-21. Even if he's named the starter, the Devils are still rebuilding and don't project to be significantly better in 2020-21, which could result in Blackwood struggling to match last season's win total or .910 save percentage mark.

Winless in eight straight

April 18, 2021
Blackwood yielded four goals on 25 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Blackwood's teammates clawed out of a 3-0 hole to tie the game early in the third period, but Mika Zibanejad beat Blackwood from the slot to regain the New York lead with three minutes left in regulation. Ryan Strome sealed the Rangers' win with an empty-netter in the final minute. The loss extended Blackwood's winless streak to eight games (0-6-2), and he's given up four-plus goals in six of those outings. He's probably a matchup-based fantasy play, at best, for the rest of the season.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Blackwood showed a lot of promise as a rookie while Cory Schneider battled injuries and ineffectiveness, finishing with 10 wins, a 2.61 GAA and .918 save percentage in 23 appearances. Schneider's healthy and will get first crack at the starting job, but Blackwood will by lying in wait should the veteran falter and has a better chance to climb the depth chart than most backups. If the Thunder Bay native manages to snag the No. 1 job, he could provide significant value on what figures to be a much-improved Devils team.
