Fantasy Hockey All Star Edition Forwards

 Here are the standout forwards in Fantasy Hockey so far this season:



Connor McDavid

Connor McDavid is scoring at an unreal pace to start the season, he already has 40 goals, 48 assists, 43 PPP, along with 200 SOG and 6 GWG so far this season. He is the favorite to win the Hart Trophy at the current moment, and unless someone has an unreal second half, I don't see anyone surpassing his goal or point total. McDavid has maintained his position as the top-ranked player in Fantasy since the start of the season.


Bo Horvat

Bo Horvat is having a career year this season because he wants to get paid, as a result, he already has 30 goals, 19 assists, 17 PPP, 4 GWG, 135 SOG, and 589 Faceoff wins so far this season. Statistically, Horvat has been one of the better Vancouver Canucks this season, which has certainly made his fantasy owners happy. Horvat was ranked 103rd overall in fantasy at the start of the season, and now he is ranked 9th overall in fantasy.


Leon Draisaitl

While Leon Draistaitl isn't having the type of year that McDavid is having, he is also having a terrific start to the season, with 28 goals, 45 assists, 35 PPP, 143 SOG, 9 GWGs and 444 Faceoff wins. He doesn't get much love in the Hart conversation because he plays with McDavid, but he consistently is at the top of the league in scoring. Draisaitl has maintained his position as the 2nd best player in Fantasy since the start of the season.


Jason Robertson

Jason Robertson launched himself into superstardom this year by putting up 32 goals, 33 assists, 24 PPP, 195 SOG, 5 GWG, and a +28 rating so far this season. He played so well at the start of the season, that some people even considered him a Hart candidate since he was a major reason for Dallas' success early on. Robertson was ranked 34th overall at the start of the season, and now he is ranked  7th overall in Fantasy.


David Pastrnak

David Pastrnak is having yet another fantastic year and unfortunately for the Bruins, if they want to retain his services, they will need to pay up. Pastrnak already has 36 goals, 29 assists, 27 PPP, 219 SOG, 5 GWG, and a +26 rating so far this season, helping the Bruins to be the highest-scoring team in the league. Pastrnak was ranked 7th overall at the start of the season, now he is ranked 3rd overall in fantasy.


Tage Thompson

Tage Thompson surprised everyone by putting up new career highs in every statistical category, which resulted in the Sabres locking him up to a massive 7-year extension. Thompson has 32 goals, 31 assists, 25 PPP, 189 assists, 5 GWG, 233 Faceoff wins, and a +13 rating so far this season, which resulted in a lot of people putting him in the Hart conversation early on. Although he has cooled off a bit as of late, Thompson is still the 6th best player to have in fantasy.

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
