Fantasy Hockey Advice Goalies To Drop

 Here are some Goalies to Drop in Fantasy Hockey:



Thatcher Demko

Thatcher Demko was having a terrible season before getting injured and being placed on IR, putting up a 3-10 with a 3.93 GAA and .883 SV% this season. He is still owned in 66% of Fantasy Leagues and should be dropped in one-year leagues because the Canucks are not going to be good this season, especially if they trade Bo Horvat. Demko is only worth holding in keeper leagues but only if you are desperate for goalies.


Jack Campbell

Jack Campbell has not lived up to expectations in Edmonton and as a result, recorded a 7-6 record with a 4.12 GAA and .872 SV%. He has lost his starting job to Stuart Skinner, who has outplayed him and Campbell has only had 1 start in the last two weeks. Campbell is owned in 61% of Fantasy leagues, but if he continues to play like he has at the beginning of the season, that percentage will be lower.


Jonathan Quick

Jonathan Quick has really struggled recently mostly due to the poorly in front of him, but he 2-4 record with a 4.54 GAA and .853 SV%. Although he isn't going to lose his starting job anytime soon, he is borderline unplayable at this point in time, so you are better off seeking other options on the waiver wire. Quick is owned in 65% and I expect that number to drop drastically if they keep on giving up 4 or 5 goals a game.


John Gibson

John Gibson is having a terrible season mostly due to playing behind a terrible Anaheim Ducks team, he has a 5-13 record, a 3.99 GAA, and a .894 SV%. Amazingly, Gibson is still owned in 40% because at this point, it is clear that Anaheim is a terrible team, and having Gibson would hurt your team more than it would help. He is not worth owning anymore in Fantasy at this point.


Antti Raanta

Antti Raanta is not even getting playing time anymore, with Pyotr Kochetkov having started 6 straight games in a row. Raanta has a 4-2 record with a 2.62 GAA and .894 SV% and is owned in 28% of fantasy leagues now. Raanta is not worth owning unless you are in a deep league with large rosters.


Alex Nedeljkovic

Alex Nedeljkovic is not even getting playing time anymore, with Ville Husso having started the majority of the games. Nedeljkovic has a 2-4 record with a 4.09 GAA and a .880 SV% and is owned in 16% of fantasy leagues now. He is not worth owning in Fantasy anymore.

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
