Disappointing Players in Fantasy Hockey

Brayden Point Brayden Point is off to a slow start to the 2019-20 campaign; he only has 3 G and 7 Points so far this season. Last season, Point had 41 G and 92 points and was one of the most reliable fantasy players. This season is a different story as Point has had the same success so far this season. If you own Brayden Point, there is no need to panic because he is just off to a slow start. Taylor Hall  Taylor Hall had very high fantasy expectations heading into this season because the Devils seemed to have a transformed roster and he is on a contract year; however, Taylor Hall has been a massive disappointment for fantasy owners; he only has 1 G and 7 points so far this season There is still time for Taylor Hall to turn his season around but temper your expectations because his MVP season was an outlier. Timo Meier Timo Meier is off to a very slow start to the season; he only has 2 G and 4 points so far this season. Last season Meier had 30 G and 66 pts and was a real

Sebastian Aho Sebastian Aho is off to a slow start to the season; he only has 2 G and 1 A so far this season There is no reason to believe that Aho won't hit at least 70 points this season, so you should trade for him while his value is low. Claude Giroux Claude Giroux is off to a very slow start to the season; he only has 4 points and 3 PPP so far this season. Claude Giroux is a very valuable player in fantasy because he can play all three forward positions. You can try to trade for him while his value isn't at its highest, cause Giroux usually finishes with at least 80 points. Phil Kessel Phil Kessel is off to a slow start to the season; he only has 2 G and 4 pts so far this season. Kessel is usually a safe bet in fantasy, he is just off to a slow start. Try to trade for Kessel while his value is low because Kessel is a safe bet to get at least 70 points this season. John Klingberg  John Klingberg is off to a slow start to the season; he only has a 1 G and 2 A

Marcus Johansson Marcus Johansson is having a bounceback season and is off to a great start with Buffalo Sabres. Centering a line with Jeff Skinner and Vladimir Sokotka, Johansson has put up 3 G, 5 Pts and 1 PPP along with 18 FW. Marcus Johansson could be valuable in a deep league because he is eligible to play Center and LW. Zach Aston Reese Zach Aston Reese is a very valuable player to have in a deep league; due to injuries to key players, the Penguins have had to rely on the line of Zach Aston Reese-Teddy Blueger and Brandon Tanev to play heavy minutes. Aston Reese has 2 G and 4 pts along with 15 SOG, 20 Hits and 6 blks so far this season, which is a really good fantasy statline. Andre Burakovsky Andre Burakovsky is off to a great start with the Colorado Avalanche and is major reason why the Avs have a 5-1 record. Burakovsky has put up 2 G and 5 pts along with 2 GWG so far this season; he has fantasy value in most leagues because he has duel eligiblity on LW and RW.

Erik Haula Erik Haula is off to a great start with the Carolina Hurricanes, having put up 3 G and 2 PPP in his first 4 games. Haula also has 13 SOG and 41 FW to go along with the 3 Goals and 2 PPP, which is a great fantasy statline. If your league you league counts Faceoff wins, Haula is worth picking up. Victor Olofsson Victor Olofsson is off to a great start to the Season with the Buffalo Sabres, having scored 4 goals in his first 4 games. Olofsson also had 4 PPP to go along with the 4 goals he has scored this season. Playing on the Red hot Sabres Powerplay, Olofsson is a must add in any fantasy hockey league especially if you own Jack Eichel. James Neal James Neal already 7 Goals so far this season, with 5 of the goals being on the Powerplay Obviously, James Neal isn't going to be the same player he was in Pittsburgh, but he certainly is capable of getting 25-30 goals. Playing alongside Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl on the PP makes him a must add in any fantasy
