He scored both of his points on the power play to help the Avalanche build a 4-2 lead, but they ended up losing the contest 6-4. McGinn has 26 points in 56 games this season, but playing alongside Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly gives him some fantasy value.

Jamie McGinn continues to get minutes on Colorado's top line alongside Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly.

Not a bad place to be, if you ask us. As long as McGinn can keep this gig, he is a rosterable fantasy player. The Avalanche are icing the following other lines: Gabriel Landeskog-Paul Stastny-P.A. Parenteau and John Mitchell - Nathan MacKinnon - Max Talbot. Adjust your fantasy roster accordingly.

Jamie McGinn produced two goals and an assist in Colorado's dominating 7-1 win against Buffalo on Saturday.

He has scored four times and he's added two helpers in his past five games to give him 23 points on the year. Super rookie Nathan MacKinnon notched a goal and two assists in Saturday's contest, while Gabriel Landeskog had a pair of markers. Erik Johnson picked up three helpers and Ryan O'Reilly had two.

Jamie McGinn has registered four goals in his past five games.

He has been getting more ice time in an elevated role since P.A. Parenteau was injured and he's been taking advantage of it. Getting to play with Matt Duchene has helped his cause as well. McGinn has 10 goals and 15 points in 40 games this year.

Jamie McGinn is on a three game goal scoring streak.

McGinn hasn't been terribly effective in standard leagues this season and even factoring in his current outburst, he still has just 14 points in 38 contests. That being said, he has been getting regular minutes with Matt Duchene lately, so he's not a terrible guy to take a chance on in standard leagues in the hope that that duo sticks together.
