Tavares notched two assists in a 4-3 overtime win Wednesday versus the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

The pivot didn't register a shot on goal, but that didn't stop him from adding to his point total. So far, he's tallied 25 points through 21 games. It's not like he hasn't been shooting a lot, either. Tavares has 63 shots on net.

EDGE Analysis

The Islanders captain is bouncing back nicely after a disappointing 2016-17 campaign and now stands at 13 goals and 22 points in 19 games after Saturday's action. Tavares is an elite goal-scorer among centermen, so play him every night.

Tavares scored his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Tavares has been tearing it up of late, racking up 11 goals in his last 10 games. The top-line center was held off the scoresheet in his last two outings, but he got back on track against a Western-Conference powerhouse. Tavares' consistent point production makes him a dynamic fantasy center worth owning in all formats. He's got 19 points through 17 contests and should remains at close to a point-per-game pace for the rest of the season.

Tavares recorded a goal, an assist and six shots on net during Thursday's 4-3 loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

With Thursday's two points, Tavares now has 12 goals and five assists through 13 games, including five multi-point showings in his past six outings. He's locked in as a high-end asset in all settings, and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, Tavares has millions upon millions of reasons to push the offensive envelope this year.

Linemate Josh Bailey has been playing out of his mind, as well, with 14 points of his own.

Tavares scored a natural hat trick in the third period of Saturday's win over the Devils.

EDGE Analysis

It was the second hat trick in the past three games for Tavares, who has been on fire of late. The captain has 13 points in 11 games on the season, but 10 of those points have come in his last four outings. Talk about turning on a switch. He's been a must-start every night in fantasy for several years now, so take full advantage of this offensive explosion.

Tavares doubled his season point total with a three-point outing Saturday in a 5-3 win over San Jose.

EDGE Analysis

Tavares snapped a five-game point drought with this little outburst. There will be plenty of people who suggest his sluggish start is tied to his contract (or lack thereof). But Tavares seems non-plussed by the controversy. He and the Isles have put together two straight wins and could be ready to start plotting a path to the playoffs. Tavares' points will come.

Tavares delivered a two-goal, one-assist performance Saturday in a 5-4 victory over the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

There was no doubt on Tavares' first-period snipe -- he intercepted a pass and broke in alone while shorthanded and made no mistake. Tavares is building toward a huge payday and will be out to prove his detractors wrong. Games like this do just that.

Tavares scored twice Sunday, and it was his overtime goal that gave the Islanders a 3-2 preseason home win over the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

Tavares, one of the NHL's elite centers, is back to work in preparation for the final year that remains on his contract with the Islanders. The 26-year-old has already been in the league for eight years, with his career output including 235 goals and 302 assists. Don't expect the consummate professional to get distracted by the hockey public's eagerness to know where he'll end up, but it's safe to assume that he'll garner much more than the $5.5 million AAV on his current deal. Tavares' point totals have slipped two years in a row -- down to 66 last year -- but the venerable Jordan Eberle was brought in this summer to be his right-hand man.
