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 2/28/2020
  • 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

Mark Scheifele (96% owned) — The Jets snapped the three game losing streak with a shutout against Washington and Scheifele helped with two points. He now has two goals, three assists and 32 faceoffs won this week.

Alex Martiznez (26% owned) — In the last week, he has 1 goal, three assists a +3, five hits, nine blocked shots and a power play point.

Marc-Andre Fleury (99% owned) — He absolutely stood on his head for the Jets shutout. He has now won five straight games.

3 players who are cooling off

Sidney Crosby (100% owned) — It’s rare to see a player go straight from the “on fire” list to “cooling off” list but Sid did just that. In his last four games, the Penguins have lost four straight and Crosby has just one goal across 12 shots to go with a -6.

Nathan MacKinnon (100% owned) — Over his last three games, Nathan has 1 assist and he is now scoreless on his last 16 shots.

Ben Bishop (99% owned) — His last two starts have both been loses with 4 goals allowed.

3 free agent pickups (under 50%)

Adam Henrique (26% owned) — The Ducks second line with Adam, Danton Heinen and Kiefer Sherwood is surprising some. Adam now has six points in his last two games including three goals. He’s shooting the puck and winning faceoffs to boot.

Andrew Mangiapane (7% owned) — His bump to the 2nd Calgary line alongside Mikael Backlund and Matthew Tkachuk is paying well. Andrew has six goals and an assist over his last five games including a +9!

Anton Khudobin (35% owned) — As Ben Bishops struggles continue Anton has stepped in formidably. He has won the last two and has allowed just 1 goal in each of his last three games.
