Tampa Bay Lightning
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Cirelli is an extraordinary young player who oozes character and skill. He not only earned Calder votes for his 39-point year in 2018-19, but he also got votes for the Selke. That's almost unheard of for a rookie. Cirelli has speed, smarts and skill, and he's already developing into an elite shutdown center after just one season. He has the potential to play up in the lineup, but he'll likely spend most of 2019-20 on the third line with speedster Mathieu Joseph. Cirelli's dynasty value is higher than single-year formats, but his game is developing quickly and it might only take a couple seasons for him to push Steven Stamkos to wing. Just file that away for future reference. Read Past Outlooks

Fantasy value on rise

Cirelli delivered three assists Thursday in a 7-3 win over the Maple Leafs.
ANALYSIS
We said it would come in bunches and it did. Cirelli got two of the helpers on the power play. This kid is really good -- he got Selke votes for best two-way player last year as a rookie. And now that Brayden Point is back and coach Jon Cooper has stacked the top line, Cirelli looks as though he might be entrenched on the second line. That only increases his fantasy value.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Cirelli has been underrated everywhere he's played. Nicknamed “Captain Clutch,” the slender pivot was the surprise hero of the Oshawa Generals' Memorial Cup win in 2015. The following season, he delivered 31 points in 22 playoff games for the Erie Otters during their run to the OHL Final. Then, Cirelli stepped right into the AHL postseason in 2017, impressing Bolts brass with his poise and confidence. Last season, he entered the parent-club lineup late but never left, playing 18 regular-season games (11 points) and 17 in the postseason (five points). Cirelli is a smart grinder who surprises with his skill. He's already trending toward an elite shutdown role and reserved a third-line center spot for 2018-19. Think pre-2017 Sean Couturier. Cirelli will get some love in the Calder Trophy race, but who knows what a few years might do for his game.
