Bailey scored the game-winning goal and added two power-play assists in a 4-3 overtime win against the Flyers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey has been a tremendous playmaker and power-play threat so far this year. He's notched 21 assists in 21 games, and he's tallied 11 points with the extra man.

Bailey picked up three assists during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old winger has been on fire for the last month or so with two goals and 18 points in his last 19 games. The playmaking winger could stand to score goals more frequently, but Bailey's contributions as a set-up man to the likes of John Tavares and Anders Lee give him more than enough fantasy value in standard formats. Play him if you've got him.

Bailey scored a power-play goal and added an assist during Thursday's 6-4 win over Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

This outing snapped a three-game point drought and improved Bailey to four goals and 16 helpers for the season. He's done significant damage with the man advantage, collecting eight points while averaging 2:51 of power-play time per game. However, it's definitely worth noting that Bailey's shot volume is down (1.24 per outing), and he's currently sporting a career-high 16.0 shooting percentage. It's also unlikely he continues to score at better than a point-per-game pace for much longer. Still, Bailey's followed up last season's 56-point breakout impressively.

Bailey delivered a pair of assists -- one at 5-on-5 and the other on a power play in Sunday's 6-4 home win over the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

Surprise, surprise -- he's thriving on that top line with Anders Lee and John Tavares, with this latest effort extending Bailey's point streak to nine games. We sure hope you've cemented him into fantasy lineups given that he's manufactured an astounding 18 points (three goals, 15 assists) through 14 contests.

Bailey recorded two assists during Thursday's 4-3 loss to Washington.

EDGE Analysis

The helpers extended Bailey's point streak to eight games, and he has two goals and 14 points during that span. Skating alongside long-time linemates John Tavares and Anders Lee again has been a fantasy spark for Bailey, and the trio is currently padding the scoresheet nightly. It's worth noting that the 27-year-old winger will probably continue providing lackluster numbers in the goal and shot columns, though.

Bailey collected three helpers in Monday's 6-3 win over the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey is all sorts of hot right now, as he's now hit the scoresheet in seven straight games -- a span that's featured a whopping 12 points. The 28-year-old is still available in plenty of leagues, so owners would be rise to consult their waiver wire.

Bailey dished out a trio of helpers in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

Bailey recorded an assist in each period. His team was down by at least two goals at every point after Minnesota's Jason Zucker made it 2-0 just 6:09 into the game, so Bailey's offensive outburst didn't have much of an impact on the game. His fantasy owners will certainly take it, though.

Bailey (personal) is projected to play Friday night against the host Blue Jackets, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The top-six winger was held out of practice Wednesday due to the birth of his child. All signs point to Bailey suiting up for this season opener in Columbus, and the fantasy hockey populous should be eager to see how the power-play contributor performs after he established a career-high 56 points (13 goals, 43 assists) without missing a single game last season.

Bailey missed practice Wednesday for the birth of his child, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately for fantasy owners, the Islanders don't kick off the season until Friday, so Bailey should be available to suit up against the Blue Jackets. The 28-year-old will likely start the season on the second line, but could get a shot on the Tavares line down the road considering he is a natural left winger. The Ontario native will be hoping to repeat his 2016-17 production in which he set career highs in both assists (43) and points (56).

Bailey was not among one of the players that the Islanders elected to protect in the expansion draft, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

There is a widely circulated rumor traveling around that the Islanders have a deal in place with the Golden Knights involving their first-round pick that will keep Vegas from selecting players like Brock Nelson, Josh Bailey, and Strome. If the Isles haven't made a deal with Vegas they may be assuming that a 27-year old forward that is making $4 million this season and one that has never scored more than 16 goals or 56 points in a season is unlikely to be selected.
