  • Islanders' John Tavares: Continues to score amid contract talk

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/18) Tavares scored twice and registered five shots through 23:37 of ice time (1:36 with the man advantage) during Monday's 5-4 win over Montreal.

    While Tavares' future with the Islanders continues to garner frequent headlines, his numbers are fueling fantasy teams. The 27-year-old star is up to 24 goals and 54 points through 45 games this season, and he's well on his way to his best season since the 2014-15 campaign.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Not looking to leave

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/18) Tavares stated to the Montreal media Monday that his preference is to remain with the Islanders, Newsday reports.

    Tavares is in the final year of his contract and could elect to pursue unrestricted free agency come July 1. He has stated over and over again that his preference has been to remain with the Islanders, but speculation has run rampant about his future because he and the team have yet to begin negotiations on a new deal. One of the reasons for that may have been that Tavares didn't know where the Islanders would be playing in the future, but that has been solved with the team winning the rights to build a new arena next to Belmont Racetrack between Queens and Long Island. Money shouldn't be an issue, as ownership has not been shy about wanting Tavares to stay long term and lead the team into the new arena. Everyone is saying all the right things, but until Tavares signs a new deal, rumors will continue as to where he will end up playing next year.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Records helper Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/27/17) Tavares notched an assist and four shots on goal in 21:40 of ice time in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.

    The assist on Mathew Barzal's overtime-winner extended Tavares' point streak to eight games -- a span that's featured a whopping 16 points. If he stays healthy, the 27-year-old has a great chance to shatter his previous career highs of 38 goals (2014), 50 assists (2011), and 86 points (2014).

    Islanders' John Tavares: Tacks on three more points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/22/17) Tavares scored two goals and added an assist during Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim.

    One of the goals and the assist came with the man advantage to improve Tavares to 12 power-play points for the campaign. This was also his fifth consecutive multi-point showing during a six-game point streak consisting of four goals and 10 assists. Eventually, Tavares is going to miss the scoresheet again, but fantasy owners have to be thrilled with his elite production (21 goals and 45 points) this season.

    Islanders' John Tavares: Two helpers, five shots in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/17) Tavares recorded two assists and five shots through 19:19 of ice time (2:45 with the man advantage) during Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Detroit.

    The star center now has four consecutive multi-point showings to improve to 19 goals and 42 points for the campaign. It's unlikely his 18.3 shooting percentage holds up, but there is plenty of room for negative regression before it's a fantasy concern. Lock Tavares into seasonal lineups confidently.
