2019 Fantasy Outlook
Any time a player receives man-advantage minutes right out of the gate, it's worth checking to see what he's all about. Jost fits the mold as an opportunistic pivot who gets to shadow elite forwards Nathan Mackinnon, Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog. Just 21 years old, Jost's power-play chances should remain plentiful as he embarks on his third full season. He's tallied 49 career points (24 goals, 25 assists) through 141 games, despite averaging only 13:52 of ice time, and over 25 percent of that total stems from his power-play output. The Avalanche struck a deal with Toronto during the offseason to acquire a proven goal-scorer in Nazem Kadri. He'll presumably block Jost's path to a top-six role, but the phenom should still be worthy of a roster spot in countless fantasy leagues due to his significant offensive upside. Read Past Outlooks

Chips in depth production

May 8, 2020
Jost produced 23 points in 67 games prior to the mid-March suspension of play.
ANALYSIS
The 2016 10th overall pick just turned 22 and has already logged 202 regular-season NHL contests. Jost has yet to develop into a true scoring threat, though, as evidenced by his 31 goals over three campaigns. Surrounded by plenty of dangerous scoring weapons in Denver, he won't be expected to carry the offensive load anytime soon, so there's really no reason for the team to rush Jost in his development.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Jost elected to leave North Dakota following his freshman season, ultimately finishing the campaign with a brief taste of the NHL in 2016-17. He remained with the Avalanche for most of the 2017-18 campaign, playing 65 games and just five in the minors on rehab. Although the 2016 10th-overall pick didn't explode onto the scene as a rookie, he did post a palatable 22 points -- 12 goals and 10 assists -- on 113 shots on goal and a 10.6 shooting percentage. Another offseason should allow the 20-year-old to grow into his role in a grouping of forwards that collectively rank among the youngest units in the NHL. Much like Mikko Rantanen last season, Jost should have a chance to break out in his second full campaign. He won't be positioned alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog to facilitate that growth, but additional contests should improve his counting stats in 2018-19.
Jost got his first taste of the NHL last season, recording one goal in six games. The 10th overall pick in the 2016 draft will have a much larger burden to bear this time around, as he’s the favorite to open as the second-line center behind Matt Duchene. Jost is a gifted scorer and playmaker, but the adjustment to playing at the NHL level doesn't come easily for most 19-year-olds. Given his inexperience and Colorado’s dreadful performance last season, it’s fair to expect some growing pains, but this definitely a name to file away for future seasons.
