2018 Fantasy Outlook
The third-year pro showed plenty of potential with 25 points in 48 games in a limited role, averaging close to 14 minutes per game to cap off the 2017-18 season. Even though he hasn't played alongside Boston U teammate Jack Eichel with the Sabres, Rodrigues has proven that he's a capable third-line forward in his own right. However, he'll have to fight for his roster spot and cement his spot or otherwise face splitting the season between the NHL and AHL yet again. A 15-goal season isn't out of the question for Rodrigues, but he'll need enough ice time and the right linemates to do so. Rodrigues is a medium-floor, low-ceiling young player for fantasy owners.

Rodrigues earned $650,000 in 2018-19 after appearing in 74 games and logging nine goals, 20 assists, 168 shots and almost two more minutes of ice time per game compared to 2017-18. The 25-year-old could see another increase to his role next season as he gains more experience.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
Rodrigues provided a bottom-six spark for the Sabres in his second pro season, appearing in 30 games and totaling six points after a midseason call-up. Though Rodrigues averaged a little less than 13 minutes per game last year, he can play both center and wing, which will help him in his case to win a roster spot for the 2017-18 campaign. His versatility may also allow him to move up the depth chart in time, but there’s no reason to count on that, considering Buffalo’s many forward options. Still, the Sabres really like the speed, energy and tenacity he brings, so he has a good chance of filling a third- or fourth-line role with the big club come Opening Night.
As a senior at Boston University last season, Rodrigues was second in team scoring only to linemate and top Sabres pick Jack Eichel, finishing with 21 goals and 61 points in 41 games. Signed as an undrafted free agent, Rodrigues has some offensive potential, but needs to play with good offensive players in order to produce. The Sabres will give him a test run as a depth scoring winger with AHL Rochester and go from there.
