Description: Jets winger Dustin Byfuglien will move back to defense according to the Winnipeg Free Press.
Insight: Zach Bogosian, Grant Clitsome, and Tobias Enstrom are all out with injures, so Byfuglien will ehlp out on defense. This lowers his stock even though he probably will still be eligible to start as a winger in fantasy.

Ondrej Pavelec, G10/21/2014 10:43:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec earned his second win of the season.
Insight: He defeated Carolina, while stopping 21 shots on goal. Pavelec is not the best option at goalie, as Winnipeg will struggle to gets wins, all season long.

Description: Winnipeg left wing Andrew Ladd scored a goal and had six shots on goal, on Tuesday night.
Insight: It was a nice night for Ladd, who scored his first goal of the season. He is not a great fantasy option, as he plays on a poor team, but Ladd will have solid nights like this one, throughout the season. Dustin Byfuglien and Adam Lowry scored the Jets' other two goals on the night.

Description: Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec stopped 25-of-27 shots in Friday's 2-0 loss to Nashville.

Description: Jets center Bryan Little will look to build off a solid performance from from the Jets' opener.
Insight: After scoring two goals on Thursday against Arizona, Winnipeg was shut out on Saturday night by the Sharks. Little scored two goals in the season-opener, and after producing a career-high 64 points last season, he will have a great opporunity to improve on those numbers in 2014-15.

Description: Jets left wing Evander Kane will at least miss 7-10 games with his knee injury and doctors will reevaluate him in two weeks according to the Winnipeg Sun.

Dustin Byfuglien, RW10/3/2014 10:23:00 AM
Description: As long as Winnipeg RW/D Dustin Byfuglien keeps his eligibility as a defenseman he's got excellent fantasy value.
Insight: Byfuglien produced 56 points last season which placed him very high as a defensman, but as just an average winger and we're looking for 60 points in 2014-15.
Andrew Ladd, LW10/3/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: Winnipeg left wing Andrew Ladd couldn't match his lockout-shortened per game production (.95 ppg) last season, returning to a .69 ppg level which is in line with his career numbers.
Insight: Ladd finished the season with 23 goals, 31 assists (54 points), 57 PIM and 189 SOG in 78 games and we have him posting 51 points in 2014-15 playing alongside Bryan Little and Dustin Byfuglien.
Bryan Little, C10/3/2014 10:13:00 AM
Description: Jets center Bryan Little posted a career best 64 points last season, but still might find himself on the second line in 2014-15.
Insight: That would necessarily be a horrible thing as we like the Jets second line wingers - Andrew Ladd and Dustin Byfuglien. We have projected a slight regression to 58 points (19 G, 39 A) this season.
Mark Scheifele, C10/3/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: In his first full season Jets center Mark Scheifele posted solid numbers across the board with 34 points and a +9 rating.
Insight: The 21-year-old former first-rounder should take a significant leap forward in 2014-15 and we have him posting 46 points (18 G, 28 A). As he matures we can see him as a 60-70 point guy.
Evander Kane, LW10/3/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: Jets left wing Evander Kane played just 63 games last season, but took 250 shots - almost four per game and he should continue at that pace in 2014-15.
Insight: We have projected Kane to post 26 goals, one off his career best in 2011-12, we'd just like to see him get his plus/minus rating back into the black. He'll play alongside Blake Wheeler and center Mark Scheifele.
Blake Wheeler, RW10/3/2014 10:01:00 AM
Description: Jets right winger Blake Wheeler should remind multi-sport fantasy owners of outfielder Hunter Pence.
Insight: Like Pence, Wheeler gets his production not by being spectacular, but by producing on a daily basis and playing every game. He's played every game over the past two seasons and posted 69 points last season (28 G, 41 A) with a +4 rating. He'll play on the top line with Evander Kane and Mark Scheifele.
