2019 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Leads Jets with 38-goal explosion
LWWinnipeg Jets
May 31, 2020
Connor amassed 38 goals and 73 points in 71 games this season.
ANALYSIS
Connor has officially emerged as a legitimate superstar and is arguably the best NHLer who's not yet a household name. His goals and points were both tops on the Jets, as were his whopping 239 shots -- which ranked 10th in the league. The Michigan native has now reeled off three straight 30-plus-goal seasons (31, 34 and 38), which should dispel any doubts about his staying power as a constant scoring threat and elite fantasy asset. If the NHL is able to hold its 24-team playoff, poolies would be wise to roll with Connor in Winnipeg's play-in series against Calgary.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
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.
