Vatrano has struggled to get involved on offense in the first-round series. He has two points, 11 shots on net and a plus-3 rating through five contests. The 27-year-old has added eight hits and two PIM, but he'll need to show a bit more of a scoring touch to warrant a look as a DFS option.

He shot 9.9 percent with 16 goals and 34 points in 69 outings last season, so there's room for positive regression as the campaign continues.
Vatrano scored the game-winning goal in overtime Tuesday against Chicago. The Panthers won 5-4.
This was Vatrano's first goal since February, and if his 40 tallies over the last two seasons are any indication, he should rack up plenty more. He's been skating on the third line, which isn't the most plum assignment given the lack of firepower in the Panthers' bottom six, but Vatrano's role on the team's secondary power play should keep him fantasy-relevant.
Vatrano scored a goal and dished five hits in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Coyotes.

Vatrano had the secondary helper on Vincent Trocheck's second-period tally, which would count as the game-winner. In his last seven games, Vatrano has a goal and three assists. The 25-year-old is up to 31 points, 137 shots, 83 hits and 24 PIM through 60 contests, but his offense is prone to being streaky when he plays mostly on the third line.
