2021 Fantasy Outlook
Even in a shortened season, Scheifele was able to net 21 goals and add 42 assists in 56 contests. Over a full campaign, he likely would have challenged for career-best numbers. The 28-year-old remains one of the brightest stars of an aging core in Winnipeg, but there's no doubt he's still at the top of his game. Heading into 2021-22, the star center will likely be selected late in the first round of fantasy drafts. He's got two 80-point campaigns under his belt, and he should also chip in roughly 20 power-play points while attempting to bounce back from a career-worst minus-4 rating. Scheifele will miss Opening Night due to a suspension that carried over from the playoffs, but that one-game absence shouldn't deter fantasy managers. Read Past Outlooks

A leg injury in the postseason could raise some red flags for fantasy players, but Scheifele is reportedly on track to be 100 percent come the start of the 2020-21 campaign. In fact, the playmaking center will likely be hoping the league year starts as late as possible to ensure he's fully fit. In the past four years, the Ontario native has reached the 30-goal and 80-point thresholds twice, and he hasn't seen his goal total drop below 20 since the 2014-15 campaign. There's little reason to expect the Jets' No. 1 center to see a drop-off in production anytime soon, and he should be considered an early-round option in redraft formats as well as a lock to retain in keeper formats.
For the first time since the 2014-15 campaign, Scheifele played in all 82 games last season, and his numbers show it. The high-powered center set career highs in goals (38), points (84) and shots (199). The dynamic duo (Scheifele and Blake Wheeler) figures to lead the Jets in scoring once against this season, with the 25-year-old anchoring both the top line and the No. 1 power play unit. If he can continue to stay healthy in 2019-20, there is no reason to think the Ontario native won't once again top the 30-goal mark. Fantasy owners will no doubt want to snag Scheifele sooner rather than later in all fantasy formats.
Scheifele made a ton of noise offensively last year, as he averaged a point per game during the regular season and rewrote history during the playoffs with 12 road goals -- including an NHL-best seven tallies away from Winnipeg to the detriment of the Predators in Round 2. Big and strong at 6-foot-3 and 207 pounds, Scheifele is the prototypical Jets skater from a physical standpoint and is deployed in all situations. Winning draws has been tough for the former OHL Barrie Colt, as evidenced by his career 45.0 percentage, but that's truly the only knock on his game — and faceoff wins are rarely counted in fantasy leagues anyway. Scheifele could actually be discounted slightly since he sustained a significant upper-body injury last winter, limiting him to the fewest amount of non-playoff games he's ever seen as a full-time player. However, the eighth-year pivot is certifiably elite.
Scheifele is poised for another huge year after posting career highs in goals (32), assists (50) and ice time (20:34) in 2016-17. His doubters, scarce as they may be, will note that just 15 of his 82 points -- a total that ranked seventh in the league -- came in man-advantage situations, while he recorded a rather high 20.0 shooting percentage thanks to taking only 160 shots on net, so improving in those areas could hurdle him into even more elite status. The Ontario native figures to be around the top of most draft boards heading into the 2017-18 campaign, as he’s slated to center the top line with creative playmaker Nikolaj Ehlers and 2017 Calder Cup finalist Patrik Laine at his sides. Those three could all finish as top-10 scorers this season.
Across the final box score for his season, Scheifele churned out an excellent campaign that has the Jets -- and dynasty owners -- giddy with excitement on his prospects moving forward. The young pivot set career highs with 29 goals, 32 assists, a plus-16 rating and 48 PIM. Understandably, the seventh overall pick in 2011 is right on the heels of Bryan Little and could end up on the top line when it's all said and done. The power-play scoring wasn't as high last year as the campaign before -- 11 points compared to 13 -- but he's still one of the game's rising stars at age 23. Scheifele was second on the team in points last season, and while he may not surpass Blake Wheeler this year, another 60-point campaign (or more) should be in the offing.
Scheifele had a fantastic season in 2014-15, breaking out with career highs in goals (15) and assists (34) for a total of 49 points in 82 games with the Jets. The former first-round pick is a big (6-foot-3) and skilled center, and he thrived as a member of Winnipeg’s second-line last season. As a part of the Jets’ second power-play unit, Scheifele was given additional opportunities to set up his teammates and tickle the twine. He should return to a similar role with Winnipeg in 2015-16, but perhaps with some added responsibility. Scheifele is only 22 years old, and he could ultimately develop into one of the league’s top centers over the next few years. Given his talent and significant role with the up-and-coming Jets, Scheifele makes for quite an attractive fantasy option heading into the upcoming season.
Scheifele’s first full season in the NHL ended rather abruptly when he went down with an MCL sprain in March, but there’s a lot to like about the young center. He managed to put up 13 goals and 21 assists in 63 games before getting hurt and figures to be a key piece for the Jets again in 2014-15. He was drafted seventh overall in 2011 and will only be 21 years old when the season starts, so it’s reasonable to expect his numbers to trend upward. After all, he drastically improved in the second half of last season, posting 10 goals and 13 assists in his last 31 games. The only question is how much will his production increase. He’s expected to be the man in the middle on a line with Evander Kane and Blake Wheeler, and if the enigmatic Kane can unlock his full potential as a net crasher, Scheifele could take off.
With Alexander Burmistrov leaving the Jets to continue his career in Russia, Scheifele is likely to play his first full NHL season this year. Although he failed to record a point in four games with the team last year, the Jets' 2011 first round pick did manage an outstanding 30 goals and 49 assists in just 45 games with the OHL's Barrie Colts last season. If you like to gamble on a young up-and-coming star late in your fantasy draft, Scheifele should be one of the names you consider. Be warned, however, that he's not necessarily going to provide star-level numbers right out of the gate, as he'll be given a chance to develop. He also is by no means a shoo-in to be on the team's top two offensive lines to start his big league career.
Scheifele split his time in 2011-2012 between the Ontario Hockey League, the AHL, and the NHL, scoring one goal in seven games to begin the seasons before Winnipeg sent him back juniors. Though the 19 year-old did not dazzle during his short time with the big club, his potential is undeniable. The Jets used a seventh-overall pick on this very raw Ontario native in 2011, understanding that he would require some seasoning in the minors, and for owners in long-term dynasty formats, Scheifele makes for a great upside pick.
