Wheeler scored his 26th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's season-finale against the Kings. The Jets may be missing the postseason, but Wheeler finished the season on an absolute tear, scoring in his last five games and ending on an 11-game point streak. The 29-year-old finishes with 26 goals and 78 points in 82 games and was one of the best right-wingers in fantasy. While he set a career high in points, Wheeler has now also scored at least 25 goals in three straight seasons. This stud is fantasy gold.
Wheeler produced a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks. Wheeler has been the focal point of the Jets offense, since Andrew Ladd was dealt to the Blackhawks and Bryan Little (back) had his season cut short near the end of February. The 29-year-old has generated 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) since March 20, having produced at least one point in 10 straight games. If you have Wheeler on your fantasy roster, you have to love how he's playing like the Stanley Cup is on the line, even though the Jets have long been out of the playoff picture.

The winger continues to click with linemates Nikolaj Ehlers and Mark Scheifele, so keep him rolling down the final stretch.
