Atkinson picked up a shorthanded goal and an assist in Thursday's 7-3 home win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

All of Atkinson's offensive production transpired in the second period, as the Blue Jackets quickly overcame a 2-0 deficit before encountering a seesaw battle with the cross-conference club the rest of the way. The American skater is now up to 16 points (nine goals, seven assists) through 18 games.

Atkinson chipped in two points -- consisting of a power-play and a 5-on-5 helper -- in Sunday's 2-1 road win over the Stars.

EDGE Analysis

Those who streamed Atkinson on a small DFS slate where thrilled to see the enigmatic top-six contributor factor into both of his team's goals, especially since the game was low scoring in general. The American winger is now up to 14 points (eight goals, six assists) through 17 games in 2018-19.

Atkinson (illness) is expected to return to action Saturday against the Rangers, NHL.com's Craig Merz reports.

EDGE Analysis

Atkinson missed Friday's game against the Capitals due to an illness, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long. The 29-year-old winger will return to a top-six role Saturday, skating with Artemi Panarin and Pierre-Luc Dubois on the Blue Jackets' first line.

Atkinson will miss Friday's game against the Capitals due to an illness, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a hot start to the campaign, Atkinson has failed to notch a point in any of the last five games. He'll take a night off to recover from a bug, though there's a chance it could threaten his status for another game as well with the quick turnaround Saturday. Oliver Bjorkstrand -- the only other forward on the roster not in the lineup -- will likely draw in for Atkinson while he's sidelined.

Atkinson scored two goals in Thursday's 6-3 win over Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

The American forward moved his 2018-19 point total to six with Thursday's multi-goal effort. Despite the two markers, Atkinson finished the game even and to date has not posted a plus rating in any game this season. However, as long as the points keep coming his fantasy owners aren't likely to complain too much.

Atkinson provided a game-winning goal on top of a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-4 road win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

There was a mad scramble in the crease, but Atkinson tracked down the loose puck and roofed it backhand into the cage and behind James Riemer with 2:46 remaining in the contest. Look no further if you're seeking a high-volume shooter who seems to be a bit under appreciated in the fantasy realm. Atkinson has four points and 18 shots on goal through four games.

Atkinson scored the Blue Jackets only goal in a 5-1 preseason loss to St. Louis on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Atkinson has had a solid preseason so far and appears primed and ready to have a productive 2018-19 campaign. The 29-year-old is coming off a 46-point season that saw him miss 17 games with a fractured foot. If he can remain healthy, expect Atkinson to easily surpass his output from a year ago.

Atkinson will play for Team USA in the upcoming IIHF World Hockey Championships, Tom Reed of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

EDGE Analysis

Atkinson pieced together a solid 2017-18 campaign when healthy, notching 46 points -- 24 goals and 22 assists -- along with 231 shots on goal and a career-best plus-19 rating over 65 contests. Still just 28 years old, Atkinson will travel to Denmark in the offseason before beginning the first year of a seven-year extension with the Blue Jackets during 2018-19.

Atkinson skated to a minus-4 rating and missed a game-high seven shots against the Capitals on Monday, as the Blue Jackets lost the series in six games.

EDGE Analysis

Atkinson couldn't buy a goal in the last three games of the conference quarterfinals. He was blanked 16 times over that span and the lack of self-support led to a cumulative minus-6 rating through Games 3 and 6. Still, there's plenty of fantasy value in a guy who's recorded at least 21 goals and 40 points in five straight seasons, so don't let his playoff woes get in the way of the big picture when drafting this fall.
