2018 Fantasy Outlook
Rated as a top prospect in the 2013 draft, Theodore's NHL career to date has been interesting to say the least. After failing to impress in limited action with the Ducks, the young blueliner was dealt by Anaheim to the Golden Knights at the expansion draft in order for the Ducks to keep Josh Manson and ensure Vegas selected Clayton Stoner. It took some time, but Theodore became a valuable contributor on the Golden Knights' blue line, finishing the regular season with 29 points and supplying offensive production during the team's Stanley Cup run. Theodore has plenty of upside and will likely be a part of a star-studded first power-play unit that includes William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault, making him a prime candidate for a breakout campaign. He's yet to play a full 82-game season, so a full-time position on the Vegas blue line should do wonders for his fantasy value. Read Past Outlooks
Two apples in win

November 18, 2018
Theodore registered two assists en route to a 6-3 road victory over the Oilers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Theodore's blue-line partner, Nate Schmidt, returned from a 20-game suspension Sunday. Schmidt is adept at setting up goals, and the B.C. native naturally figures to be a primary beneficiary. Theodore has scored twice to go along with eight helpers of his own through 21 games this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
Theodore logged just nine points in 34 games with the Ducks last year, but the 2013 first-rounder has plenty of untapped offensive potential. The lack of an established pecking order in Vegas certainly plays into Theodore’s hands, as he'll be in the mix for a first or second-pairing spot that would have been tough to obtain on Anaheim’s stacked blue line. He’s also the favorite to operate as the point man on the top power-play unit after excelling to the tune of 57 points in 76 games over the past two seasons with the AHL’s San Diego Gulls. Theodore’s a low-risk, high-reward option at his current draft price.
Theodore, a first-round selection by the Ducks in 2013, may be among the most offensively-gifted blueliners in the non-professional ranks. The 19-year-old tallied an astounding 22 goals and 57 assists in 70 games for the WHL's Seattle Thunderbirds in 2013-14, making him a promising asset in dynasty formats. He still needs some further refinement in his own zone, but even if he never develops into a shutdown defender, his scoring ability would likely still make him an above-average fantasy option. Theodore will be sidelined for the start of the upcoming season due to an elbow sprain, but it shouldn’t be long before he starts making an impact again for the Thunderbirds.
