Description: Jets right winger Blake Wheeler should remind multi-sport fantasy owners of outfielder Hunter Pence.
Insight: Like Pence, Wheeler gets his production not by being spectacular, but by producing on a daily basis and playing every game. He's played every game over the past two seasons and posted 69 points last season (28 G, 41 A) with a +4 rating. He'll play on the top line with Evander Kane and Mark Scheifele.

Description: Jets winger Blake Wheeler had four assists Sunday against the Stars.

Hot3/19/2013 10:39:00 PM
Description: Jets right wing Blake Wheeler had a pair of goals Tuesday againts Boston. It was his third two-goal effort over his last five games.
Insight: Wheeler's hot streak gives him 14 goals to go with 12 assists over 29 games this season. The former Bruin had 17 goals and 47 assists in 80 games last season.
 
Hot3/16/2013 10:31:00 PM
Description: Jets right wing Blake Wheeler lit the lamp twice Saturday in a win against Toronto.

2/21/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg forward Blake Wheeler found the net twice on five shots Thursday to help the Jets beat Carolina on the road.
Insight: Wheeler has really upped his shots at the net in February. He only took 11 SOG in seven games last month but he has attempted 36 in nine games this month. However, his three goals in February match January's total despite the increase in shots.
 
1/29/2013 10:49:00 PM
Description: Winnipeg forward Blake Wheeler scored his third goal of the season Tuesday in a loss to Montreal.
Insight: Wheeler had a career-high 64 points last season and he already has six in six games. We'd like to see him take more shots on goal, however. He only has nine after taking 208 in 2011-12.

12/23/2011 12:37:00 AM
Description: Blake Wheeler scored two goals and added an assist in the Jets' 4-0 win over Montreal on Thursday. TSN
Insight: After a slow start in the goal-scoring department, Wheeler has three goals in his last three games. He has just five goals in total this season, but his 19 assists makes him a somewhat reasonable fantasy option.
 
7/19/2011 12:28:00 AM
Description: The Winnipeg Jets have avoided arbitration with Blake Wheeler by signing him to a two-year contract worth $5.1 million. TSN
Insight: Wheeler was acquired by the Thrashers from the Boston Bruins near the trade deadline last season. He had a successful run in his short stay in Atlanta, scoring 17 points (7g-10a) in 23 games after the trade. Expect him to be a top-6 forward with the Jets this season.
 
3/27/2011 5:05:00 PM
Description: Blake Wheeler scored a goal and added an assist in 20 minutes of icetime in the Thrashers' 5-4 win over Ottawa on Sunday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Wheeler's fantasy value has soared considerably since being traded from Boston to Atlanta, as he has 13 points (5g-8a) in 16 games as a Thrasher. You may have added him as a single-game option on Sunday, but his recent numbers mean that he deserves ownership on fantasy teams for the final two weeks of the season.
 
2/18/2011 2:32:00 PM
Description: The Boston Bruins have traded forward Blake Wheeler and defenseman Mark Stuart to the Atlanta Thrashers for forward Rich Peverley and Boris Valabik. TSN
Insight: Wheeler appeared to be the odd man out in Boston after the team decided to clear cap space for an impending Tomas Kaberle trade, although Wheeler will not be going to Toronto as was rumored. He should see an increase from the 15 minutes of icetime per game that he had with the Bruins this season. Stuart had also been rumored to be on the trade block the past few days as the Bruins attempted to make the Kaberle deal happen.
 
11/20/2010 11:05:00 PM
Description: Wheeler scored a goal and added an assist on Saturday against the Kings.
Insight: Wheeler now has four goals and three assists on the year in 18 games this season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
9/11/2010 7:01:00 PM
Description: Blake Wheeler looks set to rebound this season from an awful 2009-10 campaign.
Insight: Wheeler should prove to be a value pick for some fantasy owner as he has the talent and now the motivation to succeed. (RapidDraft.com)
