2020 Fantasy Outlook
While more prominent names like Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler and Patrik Laine may garner most of the Jets attention when it comes to fantasy drafts, it's actually Connor who leads the team in goals over the last three seasons with 103 in 229 appearances, including three straight 30-goal campaigns. In terms of his overall point total over that stretch, the speedy winger still trails Scheifele and Wheeler, but he's closing in on Laine in terms of pure fantasy value at this point. If there's a knock on Connor's game, it's the fact that only 17 of his 73 points last season were scored with the man advantage, despite averaging 3:18 of power-play ice time, primarily with the No. 1 unit. Still, the goal-scoring youngster could be in line to reach both the 40-goal and 80-point thresholds in 2020-21, assuming the league plays a full 82-game season. Read Past Outlooks

February 27, 2021
Connor notched an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Canadiens.
ANALYSIS
The Jets deployed three forwards to begin overtime, and the plan worked. Connor got the puck to Nikolaj Ehlers, who set up Paul Stastny for the decisive tally. Through 20 games, Connor has a strong 10 goals, nine assists, 60 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating. He topped a point-per-game pace with 73 points in 71 outings last year, so this is standard production for the 24-year-old Connor.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
After a breakout 2017-18 campaign, there was some speculation that Connor may have been a flash in the pan or a beneficiary of circumstance playing with elite talents Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele. However, the youngster carried his own again last year, once again topping the 30-goal mark while frequently slotted into a second-line role away from the Jets' superstars. The speedy winger figures to slot into the first line again to start the season and is a lock for the No. 1 power play, and any demotion to another line will probably be related to jumpstarting other players and not about Connor himself. If he continues to grow in his development, a 40-goal campaign is certainly not out of the question heading into 2019-20.
Connor's first full season in the NHL was a resounding success, as the dynamic winger ranked 27th (tied with four others) in league scoring with 31 goals complementing 26 assists and 11 power-play points to cap off the 2017-18 regular season. The Michigan native's rate of offensive production tapered off a bit in the playoffs (0.58 points per game), but it should be known that he's only 21 years old with plenty of room to grow on a lethal top line that also features Blake Wheeler and Patrik Laine -- those two had 161 points between them last year. While there's no doubt that Connor will have plenty of fanfare in the fantasy realm after finishing fourth in the Calder Trophy voting, it's conceivable that as many as five Jets could be drafted ahead of him based on experience level alone which renders the young sniper a true bargain.
