Even though the 22-year-old German has amassed 66 points in 69 games in 2017-18, the uneven performances haven't gone unnoticed. "I can speak for a lot of guys who are supposed to contribute: it's not easy when you go through (dry) stretches like that, but e
2018-03-23 update Draisaitl is determined to work on his inconsistency, the Edmonton Journal reports.
2018-03-20 analysis All of the German's points were had at even strength, which makes his effort all the more impressive. Draisaitl is now up to 73 goals and 130 assists in 260 career games, serving as a reminder of why the Oilers were willing to sign him for eight years and $68 million last August. He's certainly golden in the fantasy realm, so make sure Drat's in your lineup every time the Oilers hit the ice.
2018-03-20 update Draisaitl went plus-4 and whipped up a goal and three assists Tuesday, helping the Oilers to a 7-4 road win over the Hurricanes.
2018-03-11 analysis The goal was his 22nd of the season -- he is closing in on a second consecutive 70-point season. The German center has seven points in his last eight games and hasn't been held off the scoresheet in back-to-back contests since the first week of January. There isn't much to be excited about in Oil Country in 2017-18 except for the stunning skills of Connor McDavid and the reliability of Draisaitl.
2018-03-11 update Draisaitl scored a goal in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Minnesota.
2018-02-26 analysis The young German is now building on his third point streak (three goals, two assists) in the month of February. In fact, Draisaitl has registered at least one point in all but three games this month. Head coach Todd McLellan has been shuffling in new cast members alongside Connor McDavid and Draisaitl on the top line recently but Draisaitl is worth starting every night despite who he skates with.
2018-02-26 update Draisaitl scored a goal and collected an assist in Sunday's 6-5 shootout victory over the Ducks.
2018-02-23 analysis Draisaitl impressed in the victory, scoring a highlight-reel goal to tie the game before setting up Connor McDavid in overtime with an incredible assist. The German forward was credited with five shots on goal and is now sitting on 54 points (18 goals) in 56 games. The 22-year-old remains a dynamic fantasy forward on the top line alongside McDavid.
2018-02-23 update Draisaitl scored his 18th goal of the season and had an assist in Thursday's overtime win over the Avalanche.
2018-02-19 analysis Connor McDavid had a day, posting his second hat trick of the month, and Draisaitl benefitted, picking up two assists on two of McDavid's three scores. This isn't the first great game the two have had together this month. McDavid is on fire, and so is Draisaitl, who has six goals and 19 points in the last 14 games. Consider the success of both McDavid and Draisaitl connecting moving forward as we
2018-02-19 update Draisaitl posted a pair of assists with five shots on goal in a 4-2 victory over the Avalanche on Sunday.
2018-02-17 analysis The goal was the 17th of the season for the German winger. He has now collected three goals and one assist during his current three-game point streak. With 50 points in 52 games in 2017-18, Draisaitl remains one of the few Oilers who can be depended on every night he is on the ice -- continue to deploy him across all formats with confidence.
2018-02-17 update Draisaitl scored a goal in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.
2018-02-11 analysis Draisaitl has been on fire since the beginning of January, recording five goals and 17 points in his last 13 games. The young German forward is almost operating at a point-per-game pace through 50 games this season and remains lethal alongside Connor McDavid. Look for Draisaitl to continue producing consistently as the Oilers hope to embark on a miraculous playoff push.
2018-02-11 update Draisaitl scored for the third time in four games and had an assist in Saturday's loss to the Sharks.
2018-02-09 analysis Draisaitl scored on the power play early in the second period to keep his four-game point streak alive. The young German has now totaled seven points (two goals and five assists) during the streak. Normally his fellow linemate Connor McDavid steals the headlines, but Draisaitl has quietly amassed 46 points in 48 games this season and remains worth starting every night.
2018-02-09 update Draisaitl found the back of the net in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Kings.
2018-01-21 analysis The Oilers have now won three consecutive games and Draisaitl is riding his own four-game point streak. The 22-year-old is up to 38 points (12 goals) in 43 games and is sporting a tidy plus-11 rating. He's been producing consistently all season and will need to take it up even another notch if Edmonton hopes to make a playoff push in the second half. Take full advantage.
2018-01-21 update Draisaitl scored his 12th goal of the season and had an assist in Saturday's win over the Canucks.
2018-01-16 analysis Draisaitl has three assists in his last three games and four points in his last five, giving the German winger 36 points in 42 contests overall. While the streak certainly helps, Draisaitl will be hard-pressed to match last season's eye-popping 77-point output. Draisaitl still remains valuable across all formats heading into the bye week.
2018-01-16 update Draisaitl collected an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Golden Knights.
2018-01-06 analysis Wow. Last year, Draisaitl had 10 goals and 17 assists on the power play; this year, he had just three PPA in 37 games heading into play Saturday. Draisaitl's 33 points in 38 games this season have been surprisingly hollo, which is frustrating fantasy owners everywhere. The Oil have gone 1-5 in their last six starts and their power play remains 25th in the NHL. Draisaitl's fantasy contributions wil
2018-01-06 update Draisaitl scored his first power-play goal of the season in Saturday's 5-1 loss to Dallas.
2017-12-28 analysis Though the loss was disappointing for Oilers fans, the stats were exactly what fantasy owners have waited for. Draisaitl now has scored in five consecutive games, a stretch that includes one goal and eight assists. The one thing missing now from his torrid stretch is a power-play goal, as he hasn't hit the net in 5-on-4 play and has just three points with the man advantage. Although the loss was disappointing for Oilers fans, the stats were exactly what fantasy owners have waited for.

2017-12-28 update Draisaitl had a goal and an assist in a 4-3 loss to the Jets on Wednesday.
2017-12-24 analysis A supremely talented center, Draisaitl extended his point streak to four games with the three apples against the Habs. It's hard to complain about such a performance, but his fantasy owners can't help but wonder when the German is going to brush twine on the man advantage. Drat has eight goals over 32 contests, but they've all come at even strength. His next chance for a power-play goal will come
2017-12-24 update Draisaitl went plus-2 with three helpers -- including a man-advantage setup -- in Saturday's 4-1 home win over the Canadiens.
2017-12-19 analysis Despite all of the Oilers' struggles, Draisaitl has quietly collected a respectable 25 points through 30 games. It's hardly the offensive follow up fantasy owners were anticipating after the German recorded 29 goals and 77 points last year, but everything could be looking up from here out. Successful buy-low offers could pay off in spades down the stretch. After all, there's no guarantee Draisaitl
2017-12-19 update Draisaitl recorded two assists and two shots during Monday's 5-3 win over San Jose.
2017-11-26 analysis Draisaitl has been split up from superstar forward Connor McDavid and centered the third line alongside Ryan Strome and Drake Caggiula. He turned in one of his best performances of the season Sunday, so it looks like he's found a new gig for the time being. The German forward continues to be a lethal fantasy threat and has racked up two goals and five points in his last four contests. The 22-year-
2017-11-26 update Draisaitl scored his seventh goal of the season and assisted on another in Sunday's win over the Bruins.
2017-11-21 analysis The 22-year-old forward hadn't scored a goal in five games dating back to Nov. 9, so this was a welcomed offensive outburst. With six goals and 16 points through 17 games, Draisaitl has somewhat quietly remained a solid fantasy asset in all settings. Still, it's definitely at least mildly concerning that he hasn't been skating consistently with Connor McDavid at even strength of late.
2017-11-21 update Draisaitl scored a goal and added an assist during Tuesday's 8-3 loss to St. Louis.
2017-11-15 analysis Draisaitl is operating at a point-per-game pace this season and is now up to five goals and 14 points through 14 contests. The Oilers exploding for eight goals Tuesday should be great for his fantasy value moving forward as it could be a sign their scoring woes are coming to an end. He's an automatic roll every game, but it is surprising he's yet to record a power-play point after dominating with
2017-11-15 update Draisaitl dished out a pair of assists in Tuesday's lopsided win over Vegas.
2017-11-08 analysis Draisaitl got the scoring started early in the second period with his fourth goal of the season and dished out a beautiful assist on Connor McDavid's game-winner 38 seconds into overtime. The third overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft was held without a point for the first time in four games since turning 22 by Detroit on Sunday, but unsurprisingly began a new streak with his third goal in fou
2017-11-08 update Draisaitl potted a goal and added a helper in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Islanders.
2017-10-29 analysis The German winger has four points in his last three games after missing four games with a concussion. Reunited with Connor McDavid on the top line, the third overall pick from the 2014 NHL Entry Draft has a good chance of topping last season's career high of 77 points -- especially given that his 5.9% shot rate is well below the mean and likely to rebound, so keep him in your lineup regularly.
2017-10-29 update Draisaitl collected an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.
2017-10-27 analysis Draisaitl assisted on goals by Connor McDavid and Patrick Maroon in the first period before adding a helper on Matthew Benning's third-period game-winner with 2:27 to play. McDavid rightfully gets a lot of the credit for Edmonton's offensive success since the start of last season, but Draisaitl's been a terrific Robin to the MVP's Batman with 83 point in 87 games over that stretch.
2017-10-27 update Draisaitl dished out three assists and finished with a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Stars.
2017-10-24 analysis Draisaitl returns to the Oilers' lineup after missing the last four contests and is expected to jump right back into his critical offensive role with the club. The German pivot fired 12 shots on goal and recorded three points in his only three games this year and is averaging 3:26 of ice time on the power play, making him an intriguing option in his return against a porous Penguins defense.
2017-10-24 update Draisaitl (concussion) has been medically cleared and will suit up for Tuesday night's game in Pittsburgh, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

2017-10-23 analysis Draisaitl has not yet been cleared to play or activated off injured reserve, both steps which would need to take place to get him back in the lineup. If given the green light, the youngster will almost certainly return to the top line alongside Connor McDavid. If he is going to suit up, the Oilers should provide an update following the game-day skate Tuesday.

2017-10-20 analysis Initial indications were that Draisaitl might be ready in time to face Philadelphia, but it appears he has not been given the all-clear.

2017-10-18 analysis Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the news that Draisaitl might be back in action Saturday eliminates him from contention for Thursday's game-day lineup. If he does return to action versus the Flyers, the winger will almost certainly slot back into the top line with Connor McDavid.

The Oilers will be hoping that their second-leading scorer from a season ago can travel with the team for their upcoming three-game road trip that begins Thursday, and should issue a further update in ad Draisaitl was already ruled out for Tuesday's matchup with Carolina, with this move clearing space on the 23-man roster for the Oilers to either promote a player from AHL Bakersfield or give Chris Kelly -- who is still with the team on a PTO -- a permanent contract.

2017-10-15 analysis With the Oilers' next game -- Tuesday against Carolina -- fast-approaching, the German stud's absence from practice isn't an encouraging sign for his chances to play. Concussions are injuries that make it difficult to assign players a timeline for return, so Draisaitl's participation in the coming days of practice will be the best indicator to his playing status in the future.

2017-10-05 analysis Draisaitl broke out with 29 goals and 48 assists last year. You could say it is a product of playing alongside Connor McDavid, but that doesn't make the point count any less for fantasy purposes. Indeed, both of Draisaitl's assists came on McDavid goals. These likely won't be the last.
