Toews has more value to Chicago than he does in fantasy, but he can still be a solid contributor, especially if your league credits faceoff wins. He won 852 puck drops and posted a 54.9 winning percentage on 1,552 total draws. Toews managed to rebound from a slow start in 2016-17 to finish with a respectable 21 goals and 58 points in 72 contests. He scored just nine goals in his first 43 contests, but heated up down the stretch with 12 markers and 30 points over 29 appearances to end the regular season. Surprisingly, Toews hit his offensive stride while playing between Richard Panik and Nick Schmaltz, who aren't exactly known for appearing frequently on the scoresheet. Toews will probably play alongside Brandon Saad in 2017-18 after he was reacquired from Columbus in the Artemi Panarin trade. That could help the Blackhawks captain get back over the 60-point mark.
