NHL: Vancouver Canucks at Winnipeg Jets Ray Peters-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to this week’s Fantasy Hockey Forecaster! In here, you’ll find:

  • Each team’s ranking for goalies, forwards, PK and PP against the other teams in the league. These stats are as of 10/23.
  • Three players who are on fire (this might not even be points wise, it might be an uptick in play that signals to me they are on the cusp of some point production)
  • Three players who are cooling off (this will also include players that aren’t materializing the way we expect)
  • Three free agent pickups (among all players under 50% owned, preferably some in the single digits and some that are close to 50 to feed all different sizes of leagues).
  • The schedule which will show each team they play and what the individual rankings are for each matchup, this is more useful in the daily leagues where you are looking at individual matchups

Let’s begin!

Rankings October 29th - November 4th

3 players who are on fire

  1. Mark Scheifele (96% owned) This guy, along with many Winnipeg guys, still doesn’t get the credit he deserves. He has three goals and three assists in the last three games to go with 42 faceoffs Won, Three Blocked Shots, 3 PPP and a plus 4!
  2. Mikko Rantanen (96% owned). This might be his emerging moment. He was good last year but he has been absolutely electric this year. Over his last four games – three goals and four assists with a plus seven, 2 PPP and six hits.
  3. Ryan O”Reilly (68% owned). At least something on the Blues looks good – two goals and four assists in the last three games to go with a plus four and 2 PPP. Oh and he’s won 52 face-offs.

3 players who are cooling off

  1. Auston Matthews (100%) Much like most players highlighted here, he will be fine but his last week has yielded no points, a minus 2 across 13 shots on goal.
  2. Jamie Benn (100% owned) pretty much exact same stats as Auston.
  3. Vladimir Tarasenko (100% owned) he encompasses the Blues right now, no goals, 1 assist and 3 shots on goal.

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Jonathan Drouin (40% owned) He has points in six straight contests registering three goals and four assists over that time to go with a plus three and five power play points. Is this his moment of stepping up to the big shoes he was expected to fill?
  2. Matt Duchene (41% owned). He has six points in his last four games with a plus 1, 2 PPP and 36 face-offs won. Ottawa is not the complete dumpster fire some had predicted.
  3. Dan Girardi (1% owned) Currently on the top pairing with Victor Hedman, Dan has 13 hits, 8 blocked shots, six shots on goal 3 assists and a plus 1 over the last seven games.
