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 11/21/2019 (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!

3 players who are on fire

  1. Nikita Kucherov (100% owned) — Nine points in one week as he heats up.
  2. Jack Eichel (88% owned) — Three goals, five assists and a plus 5 over the last seven days.
  3. Carey Price (99% owned) — Two starts, one goal allowed. Crushing it.

3 players who are cooling off (not panicking on any of them)

  1. Brent Burns (99% owned) — 1 assist and no goals on nine shots this week with a -1.
  2. Steven Stamkos (99% owned) — His last four games have been scoreless with a -4.
  3. Sergei Bobrovsky (99% owned) — Two games started, seven goals allowed and no wins over the last week.

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Joonas Donskoi (10% owned) — He is on a line with Nathan MacKinnon and Andre Burakovsky. MacKinnon is one of those players that, whoever is with him, gets a healthy boost.
  2. Ondrej Palat (22% owned) — He’s on the top Lightning line with Nikita Kucherov.
  3. Joonas Korpisalo (42% owned) — I have a gut feeling he is in for a good stretch (as is Columbus)
