2018 Fantasy Outlook
The best defensive prospect to enter the league since Victor Hedman in 2009, Dahlin joins forwards Jack Eichel, Casey Mittelstadt and fellow defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen to form the core of the Sabres moving forward. The 18-year-old rearguard will be counted upon for immediate production and there is no reason to believe he won't deliver. A true franchise-altering talent in every sense of the word, there isn't a single aspect of the game in which Dahlin -- the first overall pick from the 2018 draft -- doesn't excel. The mobile Swede is likely to begin the season on Buffalo's second defensive pair so coach Phil Housley can split up he and Ristolainen. There will be bumps along the way, but given how much playing time he is likely to receive, a dozen goals and 35-plus points are achievable goals for Dahlin in his rookie campaign. Dynasty owners need to invest immediately and heavily. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Dahlin sewed up his rookie season with nine goals and 35 assists for 44 points in 82 games. But most impressively, Dahlin averaged 21:10 a game as an 18-year-old. Look up -- the sky really is the limit for this Swedish stud.
