2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Blue Jackets' front office took some flak for the decision to sacrifice William Karlsson to the Golden Knights in the expansion draft in order to protect Anderson given Karlsson's breakout, but the move may look a little more reasonable in the long run. The 24-year-old power forward had 18 goals and 29 points in 61 games prior to suffering a knee injury that ended up costing him 17 games down the stretch, supplying a physical edge up front that an aging Brandon Dubinsky had trouble providing. The Jackets' depth on the wing could keep Anderson in a third-line role in 2018-19, and as of yet he hasn't received a lot of power-play time, so a breakout of his own could be unlikely. Nonetheless, as the veterans on the roster move on, he figures to fill a key top-six role down the road. Read Past Outlooks

Anderson tallied an assist, two PIM, three shots and three hits during Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Predators.
ANALYSIS
Anderson has picked up just four goals and six points over his last 17 games. The Blue Jackets continue to have high hopes for the 24-year-old winger, who could finish with close to 30 goals in 2018-19, but his fantasy value remains reserved for deeper leagues until he can heat up more offensively.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The young power forward took a big step forward in his development last year, playing a full NHL season for the first time and scoring 17 goals despite a lack of power-play opportunities or a top-six role. Also, the Blue Jackets front office consider Anderson an important enough building block that they sent a first-round pick to Las Vegas to keep him from being selected in the expansion draft. While it’s tough to see the 23-year-old moving up the depth chart any time soon given the talent Columbus possesses on the wings, Anderson could help make the team’s third line one of the most dangerous in the NHL if he continues to improve in 2017-18.
