Fantasy Hockey Forecaster: December 9th – 15th

Ready. Set. Jets!

USA Today/Pete Rogers Illustrations

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 12/06/2019 (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. Ondrej Palat (31% owned). Three goals and Five points as well as two power play points and a shorthanded point over the last two weeks.
  2. Jacob Trouba (95% owned). Three goals, eight points, two power play points and a shorthanded point over the last two weeks.
  3. Jaroslav Halak (49% owned). Three starts, three wins, less than 1 GAA over that time.

3 players who are cooling off

  1. Filip Forsberg (94% owned). 1 assist in his last four games, no power play points in 10 games.
  2. Alex DeBrincat (95% owned). 1 goal over his last 30+ shots, just one point in his last four games to go with a -4.
  3. Sergei Bobrovsky (95% owned). He is really struggling and Chris Dreidger is seeing more starts, maybe a good rest is what he needed.

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

  1. Brandon Lemieux (14% owned) – Currently playing on the top Rangers line with Mika Zibanejad and Kaapo Kakko. Also on New York’s 2nd power play line.
  2. Robbi Fabbri (10% owned). I get that Detroit is not very good this season but he’s on the top line with Dylan Larkin and Tyler Bertuzzi. If anyone is going to get points on that team, it will be that line. He has two goals in the last three games.
  3. Jake Allen (14% owned). Jake is playing every other game for the blues, he’s allowed less than 3 goals in each start with one shutout.
