Fantasy Hockey Forecaster: November 26th- December 2nd

The Knights get a drawn bridge this week

NHL: St. Louis Blues at Vegas Golden Knights Stephen R. Sylvanie-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!

3 players who are on fire

  1. Cam Atkinson (84% owned) Eight goals and four assists have highlighted a stellar two week stretch for him. In addition he has three power play points and two short handed points.
  2. Joe Pavelski (96% owned). Six goals and four assists over the last two weeks, most impressive is the fact that Joe has scored the six goals on just 15 shots.
  3. Carter Hutton (78% owned). Six games, six wins, 13 goals allowed across 180 shots.

3 players who are cooling off

  1. Jakub Voracek (92% owned). Always the streaky one, he has just one goal and a -4 over the last two weeks.
  2. Drew Doughty (97% owned). Two assists and a -2 over his last two weeks of games.
  3. Cam Talbot (73% owned). Two losses and 9 goals allowed across his last 46 shots.

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Cody Eakin (6% owned) this is no blip, he has now scored seven points in the last two weeks and has points in eight of the last ten games.
  2. Kevin Hayes (13% owned). His two goals and three assists over the last week aren’t too shabby AND don’t include two shots off the post. He’s also a +5.
  3. Andreas Athanasiou (28% owned). I’m a big fan so I’m glad to see his recent successes. Five goals across his last 27 shots and two assists to go with a +5.
