Fantasy Hockey Forecaster: December 16th – 22nd

Metropolitan has a favorable week

Welcome to the 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 12/12/2019 (there is no separation for home vs. away since the season is so young).
  • 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!
