2019 Fantasy Outlook
DeAngelo is a talented offensive player who plays with an edge, which are qualities fantasy owners look for in young blueliners. The 2014 first-rounder has bounced around a bit, but he finally managed to crack the lineup consistently for the Rangers last season and responded with 30 points and 77 PIM in 61 appearances. DeAngelo will turn just 24 in October, so the skilled puck-mover still has further room for growth and brings perhaps the highest offensive upside on New York's blue line. Read Past Outlooks

Keeps producing from blue line

DeAngelo scored a power-play goal on four shots and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Red Wings.
DeAngelo snuck in from the point and tapped home his fifth goal of the season early in the second period, then set up what proved to be the game-winner just under two minutes later. It was DeAngelo's fourth multi-point game in the last seven contests, and the 24th-year-old appears to be in the midst of a breakout season. He already has five goals and 11 points in 13 games and collecting a career-high 30 points in 61 games last season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
DeAngelo has a lot of skating ability and talent, but his shortcomings in his own zone have held the 2014 first-rounder back. In 71 NHL games between the Coyotes and Rangers, the 22-year-old DeAngelo has 22 points to go with an unsightly minus-31 rating. He does, however, have 14 power-play points over that span, showing that he can produce in the offensive zone at the highest level. If he can hold down a power-play role and just play passable defense, the New Jersey native could make some noise in standard leagues. He hasn't proven capable of doing the latter yet.
The prize of the trade that sent longtime Rangers assistant captain Derek Stepan (along with backup goalie Antti Raanta) to the desert, DeAngelo brings the Rangers a much-needed talent infusion on the blue line. However, with the subsequent signing of Kevin Shattenkirk, the area where DeAngelo projects to offer the most help -- moving the puck and scoring from the blue line on the power play -- has been addressed to a great degree. That's good for both the 21-year-old DeAngelo and the Rangers, as he'll get to continue developing his high-end offensive skills without the pressure of having to be a power-play savior for a perennial contender. For all his ability, DeAngelo is on his third NHL organization and has been followed by stories of his "bad boy" behavior, but it's easier to forgive some "edginess" from a kid when he's racked up 59 points in 94 career AHL games. He may not break camp with the team, but fantasy owners should nonetheless continue feeling positive about DeAngelo's long-term outlook.
Tampa's bad boy seems to be maturing... a little. He's still a hothead who can be dragged off his game by smart opponents, but the talent is undeniable. The Bolts view this sweet-skating offensive defender in the same skill class as top pair Victor Hedman and Anton Stralman. That's heady praise for DeAngelo, and it appears to be warranted. He racked up 25 goals and 64 assists in just 55 games split between Sarnia and Sault Ste. Marie of the OHL last season, and there was a 25-game scoring streak in there, too. He also went from minus-34 in 2013-14 to plus-34 this past season. DeAngelo's play was enough to earn him the OHL Most Outstanding Defenseman of the Year award. He won't be in the NHL this season, aside perhaps from the first few games of the season. But he'll be a fantasy force in a few years.
DeAngelo is a bad boy -- there’s no other way to put it. He’s supremely talented, but he’s been suspended several times -- and for significant time -- for violating the OHL’s diversity policy for verbally abusing officials and a teammate. Yes, you read that right -- his own mate. He’s probably the best offensive defender in the draft, but he’s a huge risk to be a complete sideshow. And a lot of teams put him on their “do-not-draft” list. He’s a risk/reward pick in fantasy and on the ice. Will he straighten things out in Tampa Bay? We don’t think a leopard can change his spots, but we’d love to be proven wrong. And if anyone can make that happen it's Steve Yzerman.
