2019 Fantasy Outlook
Following a 2018-19 campaign in which he set career highs in goals (five), assists (15) and shots (111), Chiarot cashed in with a three-year, $10.5 million deal from Montreal. The 27-year-old blueliner figures to continue logging upwards of 19 minutes per game, which will set him up to reach the 20-point mark again this season, though he almost certainly won't be seeing any time with the man advantage, which limits his fantasy value.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2014
Late last season, when the injury bug stung both Dmitry Kulikov and Toby Enstrom, the Jets deployed Chiarot as a reinforcement on the blue line. There was little use for his three assists over 16 playoff games in the fantasy arena but the left shooter solidified his reputation as a no-frills penalty-killer and steady sidekick to more established blueliners like Dustin Byfuglien and Tyler Myers. Fresh off a career-high 12 assists, 14 points and plus-15 rating over 57 regular-season contests, Chiarot is trending in a favorable direction and thus deserves consideration in the final rounds of deep fantasy drafts.
Last year, with the Jets facing a rash of injuries and Jacob Trouba’s lengthy holdout, Chiarot logged 59 games for a mere 12 points. Now that Winnipeg’s blue line is healthy and has young players like Josh Morrissey and Julian Melchiori assuming expanded roles, Chiarot figures to be watching from the press box on a regular basis. Of course, even if he makes a case to be in the lineup on a given night, the hulking defenseman’s limited offensive contributions make him a bottom-end fantasy option even in the deepest of leagues.
Skating with AHL St. John’s for his third consecutive season in 2013-14, Chiarot totaled a career-high 20 points and 96 PIM, and finished with a plus-29 rating for the Calder Cup runners-up. He parlayed this strong performance into his first taste of NHL action, appearing in one game for the Jets. The 23-year-old Chiarot doesn’t have as high of a ceiling as some of the Jets’ other defensemen prospects, but his ample experience in the minors probably ranks him high on the team’s shortlist of potential call-ups. But if he does earn a long-term stay in Winnipeg, he'll be destined for light minutes on the third pairing.
