Bowen Byram
19-Year-Old DefensemanD
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Byram, the fourth overall pick from 2019, could make a case for an Opening Night job with the Avalanche in 2020-21. The 19-year-old will likely miss all of training camp while representing Team Canada at the 2021 World Junior Championship, but with the WHL season's start up in the air, that could work out well for Byram. By all accounts, he's pretty close to NHL ready, and dynasty managers are just waiting for him to take on an everyday role in Denver. With the success of Cale Makar well documented, it seems almostt unfair that Byram could soon be skating top-four minutes for the Avalanche as well. He's worth a look as a late-round option in redraft formats, as he could be a stud if he sticks with the big club this year. Read Past Outlooks

Earns first NHL point
DColorado Avalanche
January 22, 2021
Byram posted an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Ducks.
ANALYSIS
Byram notched the primary helper on Mikko Rantanen's third-period goal. In just his second NHL game, Byram can check his first point off his milestone list. The Avalanche are gifted with a plethora of young and talented blueliners this year, so they can afford to shelter the 19-year-old Byram as he adjusts to the professional game. He has contributed five shots on goal and two PIM through his first two outings, skating in a third-pairing role. It's only up from here -- dynasty managers will want Byram active, while those in redraft leagues will want to see how he develops over the next few weeks to see if he'll stick with the big club.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Avalanche padded their already stacked defensive prospect pool by selecting Byram -- the best defenseman in this year's draft class -- with the fourth overall pick. The 18-year-old lit up the WHL last season, racking up 26 goals and 71 points in 67 games with the Vancouver Giants. Byram has the potential to be a bonafide No. 1 defenseman in the NHL, but Colorado's blue line is already pretty crowded, so he may head back to the WHL for another year after getting a nine-game tryout with the big club this season. Either way, Byram is a must-own player in dynasty formats, and will likely be wreaking havoc on the league alongside fellow youngster Cale Makar sooner rather than later.
