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.

Gets picked apart by Isles

May 8, 2021
Blackwood made 22 saves in a 5-1 loss to the Islanders on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Blackwood came in hot with a five-game winning streak, but the Isles picked him and the Devils apart on Saturday. His recent play has salvaged his otherwise forgettable season and almost made both fantasy managers and fans forget he went 0-7-3 in the 10 games before that. Blackwood and the Devils have one more game this season (Monday) and will then focus on prep for 2021-22.

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.
