2018 Fantasy Outlook
Sissons made huge strides during the 2017-18 season, falling just shy of the 30-point mark despite spending most of his ice time centering the Predators fourth line. In particular, he showed a terrific ability to deliver in the clutch, as four of his nine goals were game-winners, tying him with Kevin Fiala for third on the team in that department. He also contributed in a secondary role on the power play, with a goal and seven assists. For his efforts, Sissons was rewarded with more ice time, averaging 16:06 per game versus 11:07 the season before, a sign of the growing confidence the coaching staff has in him. For the upcoming season, with the recent departure of Scott Hartnell, look for Sissons to be bumped up to the third line, perhaps on the wing. The 24-year-old is really coming into his own as a bona fide top-six player, so a breakout could be forthcoming. Don't be afraid to take a chance on him in the later rounds of your fantasy drafts.

Sissons scored a goal in Thursday's 3-2 win over Vancouver.
The bottom-six winger had been snake bitten of late, going seven games without finding the scoresheet. Sissons scored the first of three unanswered Nashville goals Thursday, resulting in an impressive come-from-behind victory for the home club. The goal gives him 14 on the year, to go along with 15 assists for a career-high 29 points.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Sissons played in just 58 games for the Preds last season thanks to both injuries and healthy scratches. With just 10 points to show for it, he wasn't much of a factor over the course of the regular season, but he really stepped up his game in the playoffs. Granted an increase in ice time (from 11:07 in the regular season to 15:03 in the postseason), Sissons responded with 12 points in 22 games, and his hat trick in Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals – including the game winner – helped the Preds to reach the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in franchise history. Looking ahead, the Preds are not particularly deep at center, and They're hoping the 23-year-old Sissons can eventually anchor one of their top two lines. For now, though, the recently acquired Nick Bonino and the up-and-coming Calle Jarnkrok appear to be ahead of Sissons for the No. 2 and 3 center jobs, leaving him with a likely fourth-line role that restricts his fantasy intrigue to very deep leagues.
Last season, Sissons was considered one of the Preds' leading AHL call-up candidates following a strong training camp. However, he wound up spending the entire campaign in the minors, where he recorded 42 points (25 goals, 17 assists) in 76 games for Milwaukee. Sissons could challenge for a roster spot in Nashville this season, but given his much-talked-about leadership qualities, he may be a more valuable commodity in Milwaukee than with the Preds right now. If he does manage to catch on at the NHL level, Sissons would likely occupy a spot on the Preds' third or fourth line. Currently, Sissons projects as a responsible, two-way player with limited offensive upside, qualities that translate into very little in the way of fantasy value in most formats.
