Fantasy Hockey Forecaster: January 18th - 24th

Chi-Town has smooth sailings this week

Welcome to my weekly Fantasy Hockey Forecaster! In here you’ll find:

  • Top 3 waiver wire adds (among all players under 50% rostered ESPN)
  • Top 3 players who have gone “cold”
  • Each team’s schedule ranking, based on opponent’s points allowed, where the #1 ranked team plays teams allowing the most points so far this season

Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds (under 50% rostered)

  • Clayton Keller ARI, LW/RW (32% rostered) — He’s playing on the third line (but top PP), I get it’s the Coyotes but he is their most talented player and should be owned.
  • Kevin Hayes PHI, C (32% rostered) — If you watched the first game, the line of Hayes Claude Giroux and Joel Farabee was electric. I think they will stick with this line for a minute to see what else it can do
  • Joe Thornton TOR, C (22% rostered) — Joe is on the top line with Auston Matthews and Mitchel Marner. Anyone in that spot should be owned.

Top 3 players gone cold (over 50% rostered)

  • Brayden Schenn STL, C (93% rostered) — First game didn’t go as anticipated with just 2 shots and no points registered.
  • Alexis Lafreniere NYR, LW (84% rostered) — First game probably didn’t go as planned for Alexis who is still searching for his first NHL point
  • Kevin Fiala MIN, LW/RW (83% rostered) — Kevin actually had a decent game with a hit and 7 shots but couldn’t register a point. Not what he wanted but I'm curious to see how he progresses from here.
