2018 Fantasy Outlook
Point's sophomore season was so much better than predicted. He exploded for 66 points, good for third-best on the Bolts, and his 32 goals were second only to Nikita Kucherov's 39. Point then delivered at a point-per-game in the postseason. More impressively, he was the best Bolt on the ice in the team's playoff series win over the Bruins as well as the superior producer facing the Caps in the conference final. Point can be deployed in all situations and is a strong 200-foot player. As Tampa's second-line center, the 22-year-old could bring his fantasy owners a solid 75-point campaign. He's no longer a fantasy sleeper. He's a star. Read Past Outlooks

Stellar in losing effort

January 18, 2019
Point scored a power-play goal and assisted at even strength in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.
ANALYSIS
In the midst of a truly remarkable contract year, Point became the youngest player (22 years, 310 days old) to score 30 goals in a season in 48 games or fewer. His teammate, Steven Stamkos, accomplished the same feat back in 2011-12. Point is up to 62 points on the season, and the Lightning will need to be creative this offseason, as they look to free up cap space in order to re-sign the young forward. His 2018-19 cap hit comes in at less than one million dollars.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Point's excellent rookie campaign last season was overshadowed by the explosion of rookie talent in the NHL. He finished with 40 points in 68 games, which projected to close to 50 if he'd played a full season. That's pretty darn good for a guy who made the jump from Moose Jaw of the Western Hockey League all the way to Tampa. At 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, Point could stand to add some bulk, but his combination of speed, skill and grit make him a virtual lock as the pivot on the Bolts' third line in 2017-18. There's value in that spot, as the team will push that line hard, and Point's versatility means he can flip to the wing and skate with the big boys on Tampa's top two lines, if needed. Point will bring sneaky value to fantasy owners, and keeper-leaguers can bank on rising value over the next three or four seasons, whether it's in Tampa or elsewhere.
