2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Vatrano is at 36 points and 107 hits in 69 appearances this season, as well as 178 shots, all of which are career highs as he has finally received a chance to play consistently.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
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.
