2019 Fantasy Outlook
After a breakout 2017-18 campaign, there was some speculation that Connor may have been a flash in the pan or a beneficiary of circumstance playing with elite talents Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele. However, the youngster carried his own again last year, once again topping the 30-goal mark while frequently slotted into a second-line role away from the Jets' superstars. The speedy winger figures to slot into the first line again to start the season and is a lock for the No. 1 power play, and any demotion to another line will probably be related to jumpstarting other players and not about Connor himself. If he continues to grow in his development, a 40-goal campaign is certainly not out of the question heading into 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

Scores Opening Night goal

October 4, 2019
Connor scored a power-play goal on five shots versus the Rangers on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Despite missing the entire preseason due to his contract dispute, Connor was electric in the Opening Night clash. The winger found himself slotted into a second-line role with Andrew Copp and Patrik Laine, but could be a candidate for the No. 1 group as the season goes along. Regardless of where he plays, the Michigan native should be capable of reaching the 30-goal mark for the third consecutive season in 2019-20.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Connor's first full season in the NHL was a resounding success, as the dynamic winger ranked 27th (tied with four others) in league scoring with 31 goals complementing 26 assists and 11 power-play points to cap off the 2017-18 regular season. The Michigan native's rate of offensive production tapered off a bit in the playoffs (0.58 points per game), but it should be known that he's only 21 years old with plenty of room to grow on a lethal top line that also features Blake Wheeler and Patrik Laine -- those two had 161 points between them last year. While there's no doubt that Connor will have plenty of fanfare in the fantasy realm after finishing fourth in the Calder Trophy voting, it's conceivable that as many as five Jets could be drafted ahead of him based on experience level alone which renders the young sniper a true bargain.
