2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hyman delivered his first 20-plus goal season while skating alongside Mitch Marner and John Tavares in 2018-19. It was his second straight season with at least 40 points, so Hyman clearly offers some fantasy value in deep formats. However, he's still recovering from the torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) he suffered during the playoffs. Hyman wants to be ready for opening night, but don't count on it. Wait for him to get his legs back under him before you pluck him off the wire, but buyer beware -- he may end up on the third line. Read Past Outlooks

Knee
October 7, 2019
Coach Mike Babcock said Hyman (knee) is still a few weeks away from getting back into action, Lance Hornby of The Toronto Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
Babcock didn't allude to a specific timeline, but he was initially slated to return in late October after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL. There's no reason to think that's not a realistic time frame since Hyman has been skating since August. The 27-year-old will need to take contact in practice before that can happen. Fantasy owners should beware that Hyman may end up on the third line, and it's unclear if this injury will hamper his abilities going forward.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Hyman is the ultimate team player. He'll do whatever his coach asks without question. Last season was just his second and coach Mike Babcock trusted him to skate with Auston Matthews. Hyman responded with a career-best 40 points in 82 games. This season -- his third -- should find Hyman skating alongside John Tavares and Mitch Marner. The former is an elite 200-foot player; the latter, an elite playmaker. Hyman's responsible, thoughtful game will always put him in the right place at the right time. Another career mark is about to come -- just don't count on him for power-play production, as there are too many stars who'll eat up time there. Still, Hyman could be a productive 45-50 point roster filler on a championship fantasy team.
Hyman was the human torpedo on the Leafs' top line last season. He used his speed to pressure opposing defenders on the forecheck and that popped pucks loose to Auston Matthews. Sweet gig. Hyman’s game isn't perfectly suited for top-line duty, but his versatility allows coach Mike Babcock to roll varying line combinations. This season, he'll move down the lineup and likely settle permanently on the third or fourth line. There, his speed and tenacity will create chaos for opposing defenders but won't translate to fantasy success.
