28-Year-Old DefensemanD
Anaheim Ducks
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Manson took a large step back in 2018-19, managing just three goals and 16 points in 74 games after breaking out to the tune of seven goals and 37 points in 80 contests in 2017-18. Nearly every Ducks player regressed to an extent last season due to the team's struggles as a whole, but it was still disconcerting to see Manson's point total more than halved while appearing in a similar number of games. Anaheim likely won't be much better this season, so there's no guarantee that Manson will rebound above the 20-point mark in 2019-20. The 27-year-old will, however, continue to be a physical force regardless of his club's struggles, and should be able to post 180-plus hits and 60-plus PIM for a fourth straight campaign this year. Manson will have very little value in standard fantasy formats this season, but he should be a useful depth piece in leagues that reward the rough stuff. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year contract extension with the Ducks worth $4.1 million annually in October of 2017.
Adds assist
DAnaheim Ducks
March 11, 2020
Manson had an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Blues.
ANALYSIS
Manson's assist came on Adam Henrique's goal from Feb. 11, before the game was rescheduled due to Jay Bouwmeester's cardiac episode. The helper will count as Manson's ninth point in 50 appearances this year. He's added 113 hits, 65 blocks and 64 shots on net.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Manson enjoyed a breakout 2017-18 season, racking up career highs in goals (seven) and assists (30) through 80 games -- he never had more than 17 points in his previous two seasons. The 26-year-old saw an uptick in usage as well, averaging 20:21 of ice time without being deployed with the man advantage. Manson may have a tough time finding a role on the power play, as the Ducks have plenty of skilled forwards to fill those spots, so he'll likely struggle to surpass the 45-point mark next season.
Manson is a no-frills defenseman with size at 6-foot-3, 215 pounds. The American, who will turn 26 in October, has recorded just 35 points (10 goals, 25 assists) in 181 career regular-season contests, though he's spent 187 minutes in the sin bin. An effective patrolman within his own zone, Manson projects as more of a stay-at-home type and thus qualifies as a poor fantasy option.
