2023 Fantasy Outlook
Joseph's season was wrecked by injury, as a pair of lower-body ailments cost him 26 of Ottawa's 82 regular-season games. His production when healthy was down (three goals, 18 points), but that was the result of an uncharacteristically low 4.5 shooting percentage. For comparison's sake, Joseph's previous low mark in that category was 11.4 percent. He's due some positive regression, but not enough to the point it will make Joseph a playable fantasy option.

Snaps 16-game goal drought
RWOttawa Senators
March 23, 2024
Joseph scored a goal and added an assist in a 5-2 win over the Kings on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Joseph took off on a shorthanded breakaway in the first period and somehow fired it through Jake Allen to open the scoring. His first goal since Feb. 19 snapped a 16-game drought (five assists). Still, Joseph has set a new career high for points in Ottawa with 34 (11 goals, 23 assists) through 58 outings. And he's done it without time on the power play.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
May be dealt before draft
RWOttawa Senators
June 5, 2024
Joseph could be traded by the Senators before the 2024 NHL Entry Draft, Steve Warne of The Hockey News reports.
ANALYSIS
Joseph's name has swirled in trade rumors for a while, as his $2.95 million cap hit is palatable for contenders looking to shore up their bottom six. Warne thinks the Senators should hold onto Joseph, but he acknowledges moving the winger could help the team retool after a disappointing 2023-24.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

Joseph continues to show flashes of potential in the Lightning's bottom six. He notched 12 goals and 19 points in 56 games last season, averaging 10:56 of ice time per contest while shooting a terrific 20.3 percent. In three NHL seasons, the speedy winger owns a 15.3 shooting percentage and he's racked up 258 hits. Despite some roster turnover in Tampa Bay this offseason, Joseph still appears to be limited to a bottom-line position with little-to-no power-play time. However, the 24-year-old could shine if he forces his way up the depth chart in 2021-22.
Joseph didn't find much success at the NHL level last season, posting just seven points in 37 outings a year after he had 26 points in 70 games. The 23-year-old is still very much in the mix for a roster spot heading into 2020-21, as he'll compete with Mitchell Stephens for the fourth-line center job in training camp. Joseph was better with AHL Syracuse last year, recording 21 points in 29 games -- he's likely got a bit more scoring upside than Stephens, who is more of a defensive forward by nature. Head coach Jon Cooper may not hesitate to rotate his two young centers, which will make it tough to roster Joseph in nearly all fantasy formats.
Joseph is on the rise. Instead of getting just a few cups of coffee with the Bolts last season, the speedy winger played 70 games on the team's fourth line. There, Joseph scored 13 goals and added 13 assists, all while producing above-average possession stats. His defensive game is already solid and his zone entry stats were impressive for a rookie. This season, Joseph will pair with young stud Anthony Cirelli on the third line and the sky's the limit from there, especially with J.T. Miller gone. Don't be surprised to see Joseph earning time on a scoring line from time to time. He could surprise with a 20-goal, 45-point season.
Joseph was a bit of revelation in 2017-18. The 2015 fourth-round pick finished his rookie season in the AHL tied for fourth on the list of first-year scorers with Dylan Strome. Granted, Strome played far fewer games, but 53 points (15 goals, 38 assists) were still pretty sweet. Joseph was drafted as a guy who profiled as a third-line agitator. Today, he looks like a guy who'll someday skate on the Bolts' second line and bring his elite hockey IQ and sublime passing to the team's power play. Keep an eye on him. Joseph could get a proverbial cup of coffee at the top level this season, but he will be serious roster threat in a couple seasons.
