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.
Offers assist in loss
DAnaheim Ducks
October 20, 2019
Manson recorded an assist, two shots on goal and three blocked shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Flames.
ANALYSIS
Manson now has three points, a plus-5 rating and seven PIM in his last three contests. That's all his offense this season, and he's added 25 hits and 10 shots on goal in nine appearances. The 28-year-old defenseman skates on the top pairing, but he's typically a bit more defensively oriented.

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.
