2019 Fantasy Outlook
Dahlin was billed as a generational prospect on the blue line, so expectations were naturally high for 2018's first-overall selection. Considering defensemen usually take longer to adjust at the top level, it's hard to complain about Dahlin's 44-point rookie season at 18 years of age. He proved to be an effective power-play quarterback with 20 points with the man advantage, and the Swedish teenager's minus-13 rating can be chalked up mostly to the subpar team around him. That last problem could haunt Dahlin again in Year 2, but his tremendous skill set and limitless potential trump the negatives that come with playing for a perennially underachieving Sabres club.

Dahlin had two assists with one shot on goal, one blocked shot, two PIM and a minus-2 rating in Buffalo's 5-4 overtime win versus Montreal.
ANALYSIS
The 19-year-old Dahlin has reached the scoresheet in all four games this season and leads all NHL defensemen with seven points so far. After a 44-point rookie campaign as an 18-year-old in 2018-19, Dahlin has given every indication that he's ready to take his game to another level as a sophomore.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The best defensive prospect to enter the league since Victor Hedman in 2009, Dahlin joins forwards Jack Eichel, Casey Mittelstadt and fellow defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen to form the core of the Sabres moving forward. The 18-year-old rearguard will be counted upon for immediate production and there is no reason to believe he won't deliver. A true franchise-altering talent in every sense of the word, there isn't a single aspect of the game in which Dahlin -- the first overall pick from the 2018 draft -- doesn't excel. The mobile Swede is likely to begin the season on Buffalo's second defensive pair so coach Phil Housley can split up he and Ristolainen. There will be bumps along the way, but given how much playing time he is likely to receive, a dozen goals and 35-plus points are achievable goals for Dahlin in his rookie campaign. Dynasty owners need to invest immediately and heavily.
