2020 Fantasy Outlook
Jost topped the 20-point mark for the third straight year in 2019-20, generating eight goals and 15 assists in 67 games. A first-round pick from 2016, there's still a chance Jost has a breakout campaign at some point over the next few years. That will be a tall task in 2020-21, however, as he's projected to again fill a bottom-six role for the Avalanche, but he's shown that he can produce at least 20 points even with a shortened 56-game campaign ahead. Jost isn't known for his physicality, so fantasy managers in standard formats may have a tough time justifying a roster spot for the 22-year-old forward. Read Past Outlooks

Jost scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 win over the Kings.
ANALYSIS
Jost tallied at 2:56 of the second period to give the Avalanche a 2-1 lead, and they remained ahead for the rest of the game. The 23-year-old forward has five tallies, 10 assists, 83 shots on net, 42 hits and a plus-10 rating through 50 appearances. He filled in for Nathan MacKinnon (lower body) on the top line Friday, but Jost has mainly been a bottom-six option in 2020-21.

Any time a player receives man-advantage minutes right out of the gate, it's worth checking to see what he's all about. Jost fits the mold as an opportunistic pivot who gets to shadow elite forwards Nathan Mackinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog. Just 21 years old, Jost's power-play chances should remain plentiful as he embarks on his third full season. He's tallied 49 career points (24 goals, 25 assists) through 141 games, despite averaging only 13:52 of ice time, and over 25 percent of that total stems from his power-play output. The Avalanche struck a deal with Toronto during the offseason to acquire a proven goal-scorer in Nazem Kadri. He'll presumably block Jost's path to a top-six role, but the phenom should still be worthy of a roster spot in countless fantasy leagues due to his significant offensive upside.
Jost elected to leave North Dakota following his freshman season, ultimately finishing the campaign with a brief taste of the NHL in 2016-17. He remained with the Avalanche for most of the 2017-18 campaign, playing 65 games and just five in the minors on rehab. Although the 2016 10th-overall pick didn't explode onto the scene as a rookie, he did post a palatable 22 points -- 12 goals and 10 assists -- on 113 shots on goal and a 10.6 shooting percentage. Another offseason should allow the 20-year-old to grow into his role in a grouping of forwards that collectively rank among the youngest units in the NHL. Much like Mikko Rantanen last season, Jost should have a chance to break out in his second full campaign. He won't be positioned alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog to facilitate that growth, but additional contests should improve his counting stats in 2018-19.
Jost got his first taste of the NHL last season, recording one goal in six games. The 10th overall pick in the 2016 draft will have a much larger burden to bear this time around, as he’s the favorite to open as the second-line center behind Matt Duchene. Jost is a gifted scorer and playmaker, but the adjustment to playing at the NHL level doesn't come easily for most 19-year-olds. Given his inexperience and Colorado’s dreadful performance last season, it’s fair to expect some growing pains, but this definitely a name to file away for future seasons.
