Fantasy Hockey Advice Left Wingers to Drop

 Here are some Left Wingers you should consider dropping:



Andre Burakovsky

Andre Burakovsky got off to a hot start to the season with the Seattle Kraken, but in the last two weeks of the season, he has failed to register either a goal or a point. Burakovsky is still owned in 43% of fantasy leagues, but that number will decrease drastically if his scoring slump continues. Burakovsky has a track record of being highly inconsistent, I would consider dropping him if you find better options on the waiver wire.


Tyler Bertuzzi

Tyler Bertuzzi is having a rough season so far, only having recorded 1 goal, 3 assists, and 1 PPP in 9 games. Bertuzzi has been injured twice already this season for an extended period of time and his production doesn't warrant using an IR spot to keep him. If you still own Bertuzzi, I would cut bait now because you could probably still pick him up when he is healthy again.


Alexis Lafreniere

Alexis Lafreniere was a healthy scratch recently for the New York Rangers, and before that had only recorded 1 point in the last two weeks. If Lafreniere is not moved to another team, I don't see him turning his season around, so I would probably drop him and replace him with better players.


Anthony Cirelli

Anthony Cirelli has been decent since his return to the lineup for the Tampa Bay Lightning, tallying 1 goal, 7 points, 1 PPP, 35 SOG, 78 FW, and a +3 rating. Cirelli doesn't particularly excel in any category and has failed to register a point in the last two weeks. I would consider dropping Cirelli in favor of players who can fill up garbage categories.


Ivan Barbashev

Ivan Barbashev is having a slow start to the season, having only put up 5 goals, 11 assists, 3 PPP, 56 SOG, 80 hits, along with 1 GWG. Barbashev hasn't been getting much of a chance to showcase his offensive skillset with St.Louis this season, as he has bounced around the lineup frequently. Barbashev is owned in 14% of fantasy leagues, and that percentage could decrease if he continues to have scoring woes.


Jaden Schwartz

After a red-hot start to the season, Schwartz only has record 2 points and a -5 in the last month of the season. Schwartz is owned in only 5% of Fantasy leagues, and is not fantasy relevant anymore unless you are in a deep league.

  1. Not sure I would drop Barbashev in a week Tarasenko and O'Reilly both got long term injuries. He is about to get an instant promotion to PP1 and Brayden Schenn is being moved to C

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
