Josh Bailey LW NYI 19 minutes ago
Bailey picked up three assists during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
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.
Frederik Andersen G TOR 21 minutes ago
Andersen made 33 saves in a 6-0 win over Montreal on Saturday.
Andersen has been brilliant in his last two outings, both of which were shutouts. And he has allowed just four goals in the previous two games. Andersen sits second in the NHL in wins (12) and is tied for first in shutouts (3). He'll be in the running for player-of-the-week honors with this kind of work.
Jason Chimera LW NYI 23 minutes ago
Chimera recorded an assist during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
The 38-year-old winger is definitely starting to show his age as he now has just three assists in 19 games after recording 20-goal, 30+ point campaigns in the last two years. Chimera's best days are clearly behind him, and his fantasy value is limited to all but the deepest of leagues.
John Tavares C NYI 25 minutes ago
Tavares recorded an empty-net goal and two assists during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
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.
Andrew Ladd LW NYI 29 minutes ago
Ladd scored a goal, fired two shots, and landed three hits during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
The two-time Stanley Cup winner has been an enigma since he became an Islander and only has four goals and nine points in 19 games on the season. The 31-year-old winger is skating on the fourth line at the moment which significantly limits his fantasy upside in standard formats. Ladd has a decent shot to hit the 30-point mark again, but his upside is much lower than it was a few seasons ago so keep your expectations in check.
Tyler Bozak C TOR 30 minutes ago
Bozak snapped a five-game point drought with two assists on Saturday in a 6-0 victory over Montreal.
Bozak has just four points in his last 12 games. There's no fantasy value in that.
Brock Nelson C NYI 34 minutes ago
Nelson buried a goal and registered two shots during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
The 30th overall pick from the 2010 NHL Entry Draft broke a seven-game scoring drought to give him six goals and nine points in 19 games -- not far off from his overage over the last three seasons. Play him as you normally would.
Mitchell Marner C/RW TOR 34 minutes ago
Marner picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-0 win over Montreal.
Marner has nine points, including eight helpers, in his last seven games, so the ice is clearly melting off his game. On Saturday, he skated with Auston Matthews and the two clicked right away. It remains to be seen if Marner sticks with Matthews, but he's a must activate regardless.
Anders Lee C/LW NYI 37 minutes ago
Lee registered two goals and three shots during Saturday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.
Lee has been scorching of late with three goals and three assists in his last three games. The 27-year-old winger is thriving on the top line with John Tavares and Josh Bailey and is well on his way to besting his career-high of 52 points set a season ago. The hot streak may fade, but a 55-60 point season is certainly within reach.
Auston Matthews C TOR 40 minutes ago
Matthews (upper body) scored twice in his return to action Saturday against the Canadiens.
The Leafs won 6-0 and Matthews played 16:54. He looked like he had never missed a game. Matthews now has 12 goals and 21 points in 17 games. Get him back in your lineup STAT.
