2019 Fantasy Outlook
Vatrano finally managed to stick in the NHL for a full season in 2018-19, and he established himself as a productive player with 24 goals and 39 points in 81 games. The 5-foot-9, 201-pound forward flings rubber on net at every opportunity and finished with 208 shots last season, so Vatrano figures to once again be a nice source of goals and shots. That's enough to be a useful fantasy asset, even if the rest of his game is nothing special. Read Past Outlooks

Takes advantage of mistakes
LWFlorida Panthers
November 8, 2019
Vatrano scored his fourth goal of the season in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Capitals on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Vatrano opened the scoring for the Panthers by taking advantage of mistakes by the Capitals' top pairing. After Keith Yandle flicked the puck out of the Panthers' defensive zone, Washington's Nick Jensen couldn't handle the puck and John Carlson caught an edge to send Vatrano in alone. Despite constant shuffles with his linemates due to injury, the Massachusetts native has four goals and seven points in his last 10 games.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Acquired from the Bruins prior to the 2018 trade deadline, Vatrano was impressive in a limited showing with Florida; he scored five goals and eight points in 16 games after battling a lower-body injury. He played in 25 games for Boston prior to the trade, averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per game and scoring just two goals. The 5-foot-9 winger sniped 36 goals in as many games at the AHL level during the 2015-16 season, so he does have the potential to be a solid scoring option. Vatrano should be locked into a bottom-six role entering his age-24 season, though there's a bit of offensive upside here.
In 44 games with the Bruins in 2016-17, Vatrano notched 10 goals and 18 points, but the hard-shooting winger’s season debut didn't come until Dec. 22 thanks to September foot surgery. Now in the final year of his rookie deal, Vatrano approaches camp looking to stay healthy and make a run at a key role up front in Boston. The 23-year-old’s most tangible weapon on offense is a deadly shot that he gets off quickly, and so long as he continues to refine his all-around game, Vatrano could lock down some top-six opportunities as well as power-play time. Of course, prospects such as Anders Bjork, Jake DeBrusk, Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson and Danton Heinen have similar aspirations, so Vatrano will need to look sharp this fall in order to secure a consistent enough role to merit fantasy consideration.
In 39 games with the Bruins in 2015-16, Vatrano notched eight goals and 11 points, but during his stints at the AHL level, he was a top sniper, recording 36 goals and 55 points in 36 contests for Providence.Vatrano, whose surprising ascent last season is partly attributable to improved conditioning, has presumably earned a shot at a full-time job with the big club this coming season. His most notable weapon on offense is a deadly shot that gets sent off quickly and as long as the 22-year-old continues to refine his all-around game, he figures to be a key cog up front for Boston in 2016-17, thanks to his upside as a goal scorer. Whether that upside translates into fantasy utility out of the gate depends on where he lines up for the B’s and if he sees his share of power-play time.
