Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Collects pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto had two assists in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canucks.

Yamamoto set up Connor McDavid's last-second goal at the end of the first period and also dished a helper to Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for the Oilers' fifth goal. The 22-year-old Yamamoto has had a strong start to the year with a goal, two assists and six PIM in two contests. He'll remain a factor in all fantasy formats as long as he's in the top six.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Scores on Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto netted a goal on four shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Canucks.

Yamamoto showed some defensive skill by stealing the puck in the neutral zone before a give-and-go exchange with Leon Draisaitl. Playing on Draisaitl's wing gives Yamamoto great scoring looks and a boost in fantasy value. The 22-year-old winger probably won't shoot 25 percent like he did last year, but he'll have plenty of opportunities to succeed as long as he's in the Oilers' top six.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Emerging top-six option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto finished 2019-20 with 11 goals and 26 points in 27 appearances.

Yamamoto scored in his season debut on New Year's Eve and never looked back, establishing himself as a top-six option for the Oilers over the second half of the regular season. He converted his shots at a 25 percent rate -- that number will likely regress in 2020-21 -- but he should still have a positive impact for fantasy managers. Yamamoto's success is a product of playing with either of the Oilers' elite pivots Leon Draisaitl or Connor McDavid. He'll likely be worth a middle-to-late round pick in standard fantasy drafts next year.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Notches assist Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto collected a helper and three shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.

Yamamoto had the lone helper on linemate Tyler Ennis' tally just nine seconds into the second period. The 21-year-old Yamamoto continues to flirt with a point-per-game pace -- he's at 11 goals, 26 points and a plus-17 rating through 27 contests this year.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Bags helper Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto posted an assist and six hits in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

The diminutive winger is no stranger to getting on the scoresheet, with 25 points in 26 appearances this season. Yamamoto's six hits, however, represent a personal best for a single game. The 21-year-old has added 41 shots on net, 44 hits and a plus-18 rating.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Keeps on producing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto scored a goal on three shots and dished out a team-high five hits in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Chicago.

Yamamoto roofed a shot from in close to make it a 4-3 game with 11:08 left in regulation, although it was initially ruled on the ice that Yamamoto's shot hit the post and bounced out. Video replay overturned the call, giving Yamamoto his 11th goal and 24th point in only 24 games this season. He also boasts a terrific plus-18 rating in those 24 games and has completely altered the complexion of Edmonton's scoring balance since he was recalled on New Year's Eve.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Two points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto (ankle) scored a goal and dished an assist in Monday's 8-3 win over the Predators.

Originally expected to miss significant time, Yamamoto ended up spending only three games on the shelf. He returned and instantly regained chemistry with linemates Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins -- the trio combined for 10 points in the blowout win. Yamamoto is up to 10 goals, 23 points, 37 shots and a plus-17 rating in 22 contests. It seems safe to slot the 21-year-old winger back into fantasy lineups.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Set to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto (ankle) will play in Monday's game versus the Predators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Yamamoto has missed the last three games, but he's slated to return to the top six as well as the power play in this Western Conference clash. The 21-year-old had growing pains adjusting to the top level over the previous two seasons, but those issues are in the past, as he's racked up 21 points (nine goals, 12 assists) over 21 NHL games this season.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Not ready yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto (ankle) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Jets, Ryan Rishaug of reports.

Yamamoto has been excellent since rising to the NHL level, racking up 21 points and a plus-14 rating over 21 games. The 21-year-old winger was initially ruled a game-time decision, so he shouldn't be out of the lineup much longer. He'll have a top-nine role waiting for him once he's ready, and Monday's matchup versus Nashville is his next opportunity to return.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Game-time call Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto (ankle) will be a game-time decision versus the Jets on Saturday.

Yamamoto was originally classified as week-to-week, however, it seems that he might be ahead of schedule. The winger has been phenomenal since being called up from the minors, racking up nine goals and 12 helpers in 21 contests. The 21-year-old could find himself back on the top line with Connor McDavid once given the all-clear.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Facing lengthy absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto is considered week-to-week with the ankle injury he suffered during Sunday's win over L.A.

This is a big loss for the Oilers and fantasy owners alike, as Yamamoto has been on a tear since joining the big club in late December, racking up nine goals and 21 points while posting an impressive plus-14 rating through 21 games. The recently acquired Andreas Athanasiou may get the first crack at replacing Yamamoto in Edmonton's top six.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Bags assist Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto recorded an assist in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

The 21-year-old helped out on a Ryan Nugent-Hopkins tally in the second period. Yamamoto has 21 points (nine scores, 12 helpers) through 21 games. He's added 35 shots, 30 hits and a plus-14 rating.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Tacks on two more helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto posted two assists and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Wild.

Yamamoto has 20 points (nine goals, 11 helpers) in as many games. He's posted multiple points in five of his appearances this season. Five tallies and seven assists have come in the last 10 games for the 21-year-old Yamamoto -- he's growing in confidence with every appearance.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Buries power-play tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto scored a power-play goal on three shots but went minus-3 in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Hurricanes.

Yamamoto sustained his point-per-game pace with nine goals and nine helpers through 18 outings. The 21-year-old winger has added 32 shots, 29 hits and a plus-12 rating so far. He's starting to get some first-unit power-play time, and while that could dry up when Connor McDavid (quadriceps) and James Neal (ankle) return, Yamamoto should remain a solid addition to fantasy rosters down the stretch.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Growth in game legit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.

Yamamoto has found real chemistry with Leon Draisaitl and is delivering at a point-per-game clip (eight goals, nine assists in 17 games). Any question that the Oilers were failing Yamamoto and his development in the past are long gone. He's a great keeper and solid single-year performer.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Strikes twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto scored a pair of goals, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Yamamoto has four points over his last three games. His first tally was his first point with a man advantage this season. The 21-year-old is at seven goals and 14 points through 15 appearances. He's showing no signs of slowing down -- playing with Leon Draisaitl will likely keep Yamamoto as a strong point producer for the rest of the year.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Generates helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto notched an assist and three shots on net in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Predators.

Yamamoto had the secondary assist on the first of Leon Draisaitl's two tallies in the third period. That duo's line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has arguably carried the Oilers' offense since Yamamoto was called up from AHL Bakersfield on Dec. 29. The 21-year-old winger is up to 12 points, 21 shots, a plus-12 rating and 26 hits through 14 appearances.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Chips in with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto registered an assist and two shots on goal in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Sharks.

Yamamoto saw a four-game point streak end in Tuesday's shutout loss to the Coyotes, but he didn't stay off the scoresheet for long. The 21-year-old winger is up to 11 points, 18 shots and 25 hits in 13 games this season. That pace is unsustainable, but it's safe to say Yamamoto is here to stay with the Oilers.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Two points in rivalry win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto scored a goal and dished an assist in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Flames.

Yamamoto scored just 29 seconds into the game, and he later set up Ryan Nugent-Hopkins' tally in the second period. The 21-year-old winger has three goals, two helpers and a plus-6 rating during a four-game point streak. For the season, Yamamoto's at 10 points and a plus-11 rating in 11 outings. He's thriving on the Oilers' second line, which makes him a viable option in standard fantasy formats.

Oilers' Kailer Yamamoto: Points in three straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yamamoto registered an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

He's picked up eight points in 10 games since his call-up. The 21-year-old also has a plus-9 rating and 25 hits so far. Yamamoto has found instant chemistry with the league's points leader, Leon Draisaitl, and that gives the former some sneaky fantasy value. He won't be Edmonton's secret weapon for long -- get on board while he's hot.
