2018 Fantasy Outlook
Point's sophomore season was so much better than predicted. He exploded for 66 points, good for third-best on the Bolts, and his 32 goals were second only to Nikita Kucherov's 39. Point then delivered at a point-per-game in the postseason. More impressively, he was the best Bolt on the ice in the team's playoff series win over the Bruins as well as the superior producer facing the Caps in the conference final. Point can be deployed in all situations and is a strong 200-foot player. As Tampa's second-line center, the 22-year-old could bring his fantasy owners a solid 75-point campaign. He's no longer a fantasy sleeper. He's a star. Read Past Outlooks

First multi-point game in last 10
CTampa Bay Lightning
March 14, 2019
Point had a goal and two assists in Thursday's 5-4 win over Detroit.
ANALYSIS
The goal came when he got his own rebound in the slot and fired it past Jimmy Howard. It was Point's first multi-point game in 10 -- he'd been scuffling through a nine-game, five-point period. But Point remains within the league's top-10 scorers with 86 points in 69 games. And he's in a three-way tie with Alex DeBrincat and Cam Atkinson for fifth in goals with 38. Then again, he's the Bolts' best sniper and every goal and point keep increasing the value of the next contract the impending RFA inks with the team.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Point's excellent rookie campaign last season was overshadowed by the explosion of rookie talent in the NHL. He finished with 40 points in 68 games, which projected to close to 50 if he'd played a full season. That's pretty darn good for a guy who made the jump from Moose Jaw of the Western Hockey League all the way to Tampa. At 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, Point could stand to add some bulk, but his combination of speed, skill and grit make him a virtual lock as the pivot on the Bolts' third line in 2017-18. There's value in that spot, as the team will push that line hard, and Point's versatility means he can flip to the wing and skate with the big boys on Tampa's top two lines, if needed. Point will bring sneaky value to fantasy owners, and keeper-leaguers can bank on rising value over the next three or four seasons, whether it's in Tampa or elsewhere.
