Little scored a pair of goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's win over the Islanders. His second straight multi-point effort, this performance also gave Little his fifth 20-goal season. The 29-year-old lost a big chunk of his season to injury, so this will be his third consecutive campaign of 70 or fewer games; in fact, he won't even reach 60, as he's played 48 and the Jets have only 11 contests left. That said, when he's been on the ice, Little's certainly been a credible point producer.
Little collected a goal and an assist during Friday's win over St. Louis. With just a single goal through his previous seven outings, this was a nice bounce-back outing from Little. He's having another solid campaign with 18 goals and 33 points through 42 games and should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues. Additionally, because of his recent cold stretch, Little is currently presenting excellent value in daily contests.
Little tucked the puck into the cage on a rebound Friday, yet his Jets team suffered a 5-2 home loss to the Blackhawks. It almost feels wrong calling him Little knowing he plays such a big game. The 29-year-old is sniping at an incredible rate of 22.2 percent this season, and while that's probably not sustainable, it represents the fourth-highest total on the Jets -- he's tied with linemate Blake Wheeler in the scoring department and is now up to 30 points in 34 games. Best of all, he's been healthy since a lower-body ailment wiped out 23 games from his schedule early in the 2016-17 campaign.
Little picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-3 victory over Chicago. Little's bar-down wrister would end up being the game winner for the Jets, ending a two-game skid for Winnipeg. Tuesday's outing marks the center's fourth multi-point performance in his last five outings. Despite some recent struggles in goal, the 29-year-old seems prepared to provide whatever offensive support the team might need.
Little potted two more goals in Tuesday's 4-3 loss against the Sharks. The Jets blew a late lead, but the loss was no fault of Little. He has been on fire lately, posting five goals and seven points during his current four-game point streak. Little has a season-high 12 points in 12 games in the month of January, re-emerging as a must-start fantasy in most seasonal pools. He is also a nice value in DFS play while producing at a point-per-game clip.
