2018 Fantasy Outlook
Ellis, who missed the first half of last season due to knee surgery, returned to the lineup in January and quickly made up for lost time, finishing with 32 points in 44 games. This equates to a blistering 60-point pace, which would have put him right up there among the elite scoring defensemen in the league like Drew Doughty (62), Erik Karlsson (62) and Victor Hedman (63). Skating mostly on the Predators' first pairing opposite Roman Josi, Ellis was the team's best defender most nights - especially in his own zone, as his eye-popping plus-27 rating will attest. With the ink drying on an eight-year, $50 million contract extension that he signed in mid-August, Ellis remains one of the league's top options on a very stacked blue line. Don't be afraid to kick him up a notch or two on your draft cheat sheets this fall. Read Past Outlooks
