Fantasy Hockey Advice Defenseman to Drop

 Here are some players you should drop in Fantasy Hockey:



Seth Jones

Although Seth Jones is having a solid year, he is playing on the worst teams in the league, which has resulted in him getting the worst +/- in the league. Jones has 1 Goal, 8 assists, and 5 PPP but is a -21, which in some leagues may be bad enough to offset his offensive production. I don't see Seth Jones turning it around this season, so you should consider dropping Seth Jones if you still have him on your team.


John Klingberg

John Klingberg has decent offensive production, with 4 goals, 7 assists, and 3 PPP but is a -15 because he plays for a terrible Anaheim Ducks team. Unless Klingberg is traded to a contender, I don't see him having significant fantasy contributions, and you can definitely find a better replacement on the waiver wire than him.


Cam Fowler

Cam Fowler is having a decent season so far this season, with 4 goals, 12 assists, and 7 PPP but is a -9 because he plays for a bad Anaheim Ducks team. It seems like every season, Fowler has stretches in which will be really good, but on the other hand, he has stretches where he can go pointless. Fowler is owned in 15% of Fantasy leagues, and that percentage should drop if and when he goes on a scoring drought.


Colton Parayko

Colton Parayko has continuously been a disappointment in fantasy, and this season has arguably been the most disappointing start to the season that he has had. Parayko had 1 goal, 7 assists, 1 PPP, and is a -6, along with 57 SOG, 51 hits, and 51 blocks; he has value in CAT leagues, but not in standard leagues. Parayko is owned in 12% of Fantasy Leagues, and I could see more owners dropping him if St.Louis continues to struggle.


Calen Addison

Calen Addison has been a revelation on the Man advantage for the Minnesota Wild, with 2 goals, 13 assists, and 11 PPP but is a -9 and doesn't provide value in other categories other than assists and PPP. Addison has been playing less lately and has been strictly used as a PP specialist, so unless you are in desperate need of PPP, I would suggest finding a different defenseman. Addison is owned in 11% and I can see him getting dropped more if his playing time continues to decrease.


Sam Girard

Sam Girard is a player who has been a massive disappointment for two straight years in fantasy; many owners gave him the benefit of doubt that he was injured last season, but not anymore. Girard is having another dud year, recording 1 goal, 4 assists, 2 PPP, and is a -8; at this point, just cut your losses and find another player to replace him because he isn't helping at all. Girard is only owned in 10% of leagues and I could see that percentage dropping if he continues to record zeros across the board.

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

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 Players to Trade Away

Here are some players you should Trade Away: Brock Nelson Brock Nelson has a track record of having hot starts to the season and then cooling off in the second half of the season. Nelson already has 11 goals, 22 points, and 6 PPP so far this season, but his best scoring season was last year when he had 37 goals and 59 points. It's already established what type of player Brock Nelson is, he is a player who excels in the first half of the season but cools off in the second half. For this reason, it would be best to trade away Brock Nelson.  Dominik Kubalik Dominik Kubalik is arguably the biggest steal in fantasy hockey this season, as he wasn't drafted in many leagues, however, his hot start has him rostered in 81% of Fantasy leagues. Kubalik has 9 goals, 13 assists, 10 PPP, and is a +4 so far this season, playing on a line with Dylan Larkin and Lucas Raymond and Detroit's 1st PP unit. It would be a good idea to trade Kubalik now while his value is sky-high. Martin Necas Mart
