2018 Fantasy Outlook
Dermott was a revelation in just 37 games with the Leafs last season. His 13-point production, coupled with his smooth, two-way game was the best third-pairing season witnessed in a long time, especially when you start looking at similarity scores. Dermott's 2017-18 was eerily similar to John Klingberg's and the one played out by Shayne Gostisbehere. Now, he doesn't have the high-end skill of either of those players, but could easily be a 45-50 point, top-four defender someday soon. He deserves a promotion having outgrown the third pairing and is fabulous in transition. The Leafs could use Dermott on his off-side and skate him with Morgan Rielly. You read that right. Ron Hainsey is on the decline and someone will need to step in. Dermott's sophomore season will be fantasy worthy, and he could be one of the steals of upcoming fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks

Following development arc of Rielly

The Leafs are guiding Dermott's development along the same type of path as they used with Morgan Rielly, reports the Toronto Star.
ANALYSIS
Coach Mike Babcock kept a tight leash on Rielly for two seasons before unleashing him. Babcock has already moved Dermott from alongside the steady Ron Hainsey to beside offensive-minded Jake Gardiner. Dermott has 16 points in 57 games; Rielly had 29 in 81 in his second season. If the career arc is parallel, Dermott will see a big jump in production in another couple of seasons once he grows his view of the defensive zone. Keeper owners should stash him now if they have salary flexibility.
