Fantasy Hockey Advice Players to Trade For

 Here are players you should Trade For in Fantasy Hockey: Elias Lindholm Elias Lindholm has gotten off to a slow start to the season; he only has 2 goals, 2 PPP, 10 SOG, 50 FW, and is a -3 so far this season. He is a player you definitely want to target in a trade, as some impatient managers may be willing to trade away players who don't produce immediately. Of course in order to get a player of Lindholm's caliber, you would need to give up a ton, but it would be worth it at the end of the year. Teuvo Teravainen Teuvo Teraveinen is another player who has gotten off to a slow start to the season; he only has 2 assists, 16 SOG, and is a +5 so far this season. Teravainen doesn't have much value if he isn't racking up assists, which will come in the second half of the season, which is when the points really matter. It would be a smart idea to trade for him while his value is low, using the buy-low strategy. Jordan Kyrou Jordan Kyrou has had a rough start to the season; he o

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Players to Pickup

 Here are some players you should consider picking up for Fantasy Hockey: David Krejci David Krejci is back and it seems like he never left; Krejci centers  "The Czech Line", which features David Pastrnak and Pavel Zacha. The line has gotten off to a terrific start and he has done a great job filling in for Brad Marchand on the Powerplay as well. Krejci has 1 goal, 3 assists, and 1 PPP, along with 15 FW so far this season.  Nic Dowd Nic Dowd is not a player who should be owned in standard leagues, but if you are in a CAT league, which includes FW and Hits, he should definitely be rostered. Dowd is top 50 in FW amongst centers so far this season and he leads Centers in hits. Down has 1 goal, 1 assist, 23 FW, 19 hits, and 3 blocks, which makes for a very good fantasy stat line. Jaden Schwartz Jaden Schwartz has gotten off to a terrific start to the season, putting up 2 goals, 1 assist and 2 PPP along with 13 SOG, and 8 hits. When healthy Schwartz is a very productive player, bu

Fantasy Hockey Advice: Overrated Players + Players to Avoid

 Here are some Overrated Players and players to avoid in Fantasy Hockey this season. Overrated Players Jack Eichel On paper, Jack Eichel is set up to put up some great numbers playing on a line with Mark Stone and Phil Kessel, but he hasn't played in 80 games since his rookie season in Buffalo. You would expect Eichel to put up better numbers playing with more talent in Vegas than he did in Buffalo, but he had some trouble finding chemistry with his linemates last season. Vegas hopes Eichel is fully healthy this season and forms a dynamic duo along with Mark Stone, but it might be wishful thinking because Eichel has lost a step since returning from his neck injury. It is not worth picking him in the 4th round when you can get players such as Elias Lindholm, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Elias Pettersson, John Tavares, and Claude Giroux. Chris Kreider Chris Kreider is overrated in Fantasy hockey because of his production from last season, in which he put up some unreal stats: 52 goals, 35 PPP,

Fantasy Hockey Advice: Breakout Players + Sleepers

 Here is my list of Breakout players and Sleepers this year in Fantasy Hockey. Breakout Players Tim Stutzle Tim Stutzle is my big Breakout candidate this year because he will be playing on a line with Alex DeBrincat and Claude Giroux. He put up 52 points last year playing with different linemates every other game, so you can expect a 70+ point season playing with these two star players. Tim Stutzle is finally surrounded by great offensive talent that can feed off his, so be ready for a great campaign from the German pivot. Matt Boldy Matt Boldy burst onto the NHL scene putting up 15 goals, 39 points, and 10 PP in 47 games last year with the Minnesota Wild. Boldy is projected to play on Minnesota's 3rd line alongside Sam Steel and Fredrick Gaudreau, and it's 2nd PP unit; however, I can see Marco Rossi overtaking Steel in the lineup eventually. It is not out of the possibility for Boldy to score 60+ points, and 15+ PP this season, considering how productive he was in the second h
