2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hyman may just be the league's luckiest role player -- 28 of his 37 scoring plays in 2019-20 featured either Auston Matthews or Mitch Marner. On his own, Hyman's a good middle-six winger, but playing with two of the league's most-talented forwards will increase anyone's offensive production. His spot on the second power-play unit won't be guaranteed in 2020-21, so if he's unable to beat out Jimmy Vesey or Nick Robertson for that job, his overall production will obviously suffer. Either way, Hyman's top-six assignment on the Leafs will make him worthy of a mid-to-late-round pick in most fantasy formats. Read Past Outlooks

Deal with Edmonton made official

Hyman will sign a seven-year, $38.5 million contract with the Oilers on Wednesday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
ANALYSIS
Hyman has been an integral part of the Maple Leafs' top six over the past two seasons, picking up 36 goals, 34 helpers and 221 shots on net to go along with a plus-32 rating while averaging 19:13 of ice time through 94 appearances. Many expect Hyman to skate on Connor McDavid's wing in 2021-22, and if that comes to fruition, he could become a point-per-game player, which would obviously make him a highly attractive fantasy asset. Hyman's contract may not age well, but he could be just want Edmonton needs to get over the top in the immediate future.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
Hyman delivered his first 20-plus goal season while skating alongside Mitch Marner and John Tavares in 2018-19. It was his second straight season with at least 40 points, so Hyman clearly offers some fantasy value in deep formats. However, he's still recovering from the torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) he suffered during the playoffs. Hyman wants to be ready for opening night, but don't count on it. Wait for him to get his legs back under him before you pluck him off the wire, but buyer beware -- he may end up on the third line.
Hyman is the ultimate team player. He'll do whatever his coach asks without question. Last season was just his second and coach Mike Babcock trusted him to skate with Auston Matthews. Hyman responded with a career-best 40 points in 82 games. This season -- his third -- should find Hyman skating alongside John Tavares and Mitch Marner. The former is an elite 200-foot player; the latter, an elite playmaker. Hyman's responsible, thoughtful game will always put him in the right place at the right time. Another career mark is about to come -- just don't count on him for power-play production, as there are too many stars who'll eat up time there. Still, Hyman could be a productive 45-50 point roster filler on a championship fantasy team.
Hyman was the human torpedo on the Leafs' top line last season. He used his speed to pressure opposing defenders on the forecheck and that popped pucks loose to Auston Matthews. Sweet gig. Hyman’s game isn't perfectly suited for top-line duty, but his versatility allows coach Mike Babcock to roll varying line combinations. This season, he'll move down the lineup and likely settle permanently on the third or fourth line. There, his speed and tenacity will create chaos for opposing defenders but won't translate to fantasy success.
