Finding value late in drafts is key to fantasy hockey success. Leagues aren’t won on draft day but can be set back if the wrong players are taken. It’s not easy to decide between players separated by very little, and evaluating risk can be tricky in the late rounds. Let’s take a look at some of the best fantasy hockey values outside the top 100 and see which players should be targeted.

Jaromir Jagr | New Jersey Devils | Right Wing

Jagr is 42-years-old and could be the steal of the century in fantasy hockey this year. His current ADP is 145, and he is clearly undervalued in the fantasy world. He has been absolutely amazing since coming back to the NHL in 2011-2012 and has done nothing but contribute offensively in the last three years.

The following table shows Jagr’s yearly production since 2011-2012:

Year Team GP Goals Assists Points Plus/Minus
2011-12 PHI 73 19 35 54 5
2012-13* BOS/DAL 45 16 19 35 -2
2013-14 NJ 82 24 43 67 16

 

 

*Lock out shorten season

The Czech arguably had his best season last year since coming back to North America – Leading the Devils in games played (82), assists (43), points (67), and plus/minus (16).  The right-winger will finish in the top 100 by the end of the season and is worth grabbing a round or two early. 

Alexander Semin | Carolina Hurricanes | Right Wing

Semin is the definition of a boom-or-bust fantasy player.  The talented right-winger’s average draft position (ADP) on Yahoo is 121 because of his lack of consistency. He averaged a point-per-game in his first season in Carolina — 44 points in 44 games. Last year was a disappointment as the Russian was limited to just 65 games with a concussion and finished the year with 42 points. Semin could easily finish inside the top 100 at the end of the year, but his work ethic may keep some managers away.

David Perron | Edmonton Oilers | Left Wing

Perron’s current ADP is 156, and he is a player many people might forget come draft time. In his first season with Edmonton, after spending six seasons with the St. Louis Blues, he was tied for the team lead in goals (28), fourth in assists (29), and third in points (57). The Quebec native can definitely improve on those numbers from last year playing with the likes of Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Taylor Hall. The 26-year-old has a chance to break the top 100 and should be a nice bench guy in deeper leagues.

Cody Hodgson | Buffalo Sabres | Center

It was a disappointing season for Hodgson who finished the year with 44 points in 72 games. The good news is that it can’t get any worse for the 24-year-old, and he should have a much more productive season this year. Hodgson is likely to start this season as a left-winger, and he already has center/right wing status in most leagues. This could give the Canadian triple position eligibility in some leagues, and he is expected to play alongside talented winger Matt Moulson. His current ADP is 171, but it’s expected he’ll crack the top 150.

P.A. Parenteau | Montreal Canadiens | Right Wing

The Montreal Canadiens are hoping a change of scenery will help Parenteau return to his 2011-12 form that saw him post 67 points in 80 games. The 31-year-old winger was traded during the offseason after tallying 33 points in 55 games and will get his shot to play on Montreal’s top line with Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais. The Gatineau native’s ADP is 182, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him creep into the top 125 by season’s end. Parenteau is someone to consider in deeper leagues, and he should provide fantasy value for owners who believe his Long Island days are not behind him.

Every season several NHL Players pack their bags and relocate, allowing for bigger and brighter futures. These changes impact the NHL, the player’s lives and most importantly their fantasy values. For some players it means a bigger role on their new team or sometimes a downgrade to a smaller role from their previous situation.. Below are five players whose fantasy value will change this season due to relocation. Please note these names are not in any particular ranking or order.

Radim Vrbata (VAN, Right Wing): Vrbata has been around the league since 1999 when the Colorado Avalanche drafted him. Vrbata never actually played for the Avalanche rather, he is most known for his six seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes. Every season in which Vrbata played at least 40 games, he finished with twenty or more goals and assists. The Czech native had his best season was back in 2011, when he finished with thirty-five goals and twenty-seven assists. Keep in mind his line mates for those six seasons weren’t nearly as good as his new line mates — the Sedin twins. By moving to Vancouver, the 33-year-old Vrbata now has a better supporting cast than he ever had in Phoenix.

Expect Vrbata’s numbers to increase across the board with the Sedin brothers surrounding him. Both Sedin brothers are great at setting up fellow line mates so expect Vrbata’s goal numbers to reach as high as thirty for 2014. Along with that his time on ice and plus/minus numbers should also be higher for this upcoming season. ESPN currently has Vrbata ranked as their 72nd forward, but I could easily see him finishing as a top sixty forward for 2014. [Read more...]

Fantasy Hockey Top Five Picks: On The Clock

This article was written by Christoper Morais. He can be found on twitter @fuzzychris91

Choosing whom to take first overall in a fantasy hockey draft is never easy. Starting with the wrong player could destroy a team from the start. It’s important to do some research and find the perfect player to start your lineup. Let’s take a look at the top five players in this years fantasy hockey draft and see which player you, the general manager, should be taking.

Sidney Crosby | Pittsburgh Penguins | Center

The first pick should always be Sidney, period. Consider this: Crosby has never produced less than a point-per-game in any of his nine NHL seasons. He’s back to perfect health and playing at the peak of his career. This is truly a no brainer.

Sidney Crosby is a no-brainer at number one overall

Steven Stamkos | Tampa Bay Lightning | Center

Stamkos is a pure sniper.  Entering his seventh season, he’s ready to lead the Lightning. He has 233 career goals and will be looking to add to that this year. He could have challenged Ovechkin for the NHL scoring title, but broke his leg and missed 45 games. The center-man still finished last season with a shooting percentage of 20.2% and could easily do it again this year. Stamkos is a lock at #2.

Evgeni Malkin | Pittsburgh Penguins | Center

Malkin is a risky pick at #3. He’s coming back from injury and hasn’t played a full season since 08’-09’. However, he finished tenth in assists (49), averaged 3.18 shots-per-game, and average a point-per-game last year in only sixty games. If “Geno” can stay healthy, he could flirt with #1 overall value.

Alexander Ovechkin | Washington Capitals | Right Wing

Nobody scores goals like Ovechkin does. He’s a great sniper, with a wicked, almost unreal release.  The talented Russian is poised to have another great season, and seems primed to score 50 goals for the sixth time. If your league takes into consideration the plus/minus (+/-) stat, then it could hurt his draft stock, but he shouldn’t slip any farther than this.

 John Tavares | New York Islanders | Center

Tavares rounds out the top five. The 24-year-old has quickly developed into an elite player and has consistently improved his performance every year — although a knee injury ended his last season early.

Last year was the first season that Tavares averaged over a point-per-game in a season, and it certainly won’t be the last time. He’s clearly durable — only missing a handful of games his previous four years — and will have a much better supporting cast than last year. His plus/minus is something that fantasy owners will have to accept again this season, but like Ovechkin, that shouldn’t be something to worry about.  Although the Canadian is still young, he’s definitely the best player choice after the big four. If he stays healthy this year, he may be in for an even better season than last year.

It’s impossible to go wrong with any one of these fantasy superstars. Each of these players will play a major role in their NHL and fantasy team’s success. Getting one of these players really can set fantasy owners apart from the rest of their league and could be the difference between winning and losing.

Fantasy Hockey Daily Fix, April 13th

Its Sunday and it’s the last night of the year for regular season NHL action! Many goaltenders are sitting this one out, and we have some of them confirmed for you so far.

The number one game to target will be Calgary @ Vancouver 

Karri Ramo gets the start in net and he’s reasonably priced across the industry. Jacob Markstrom will likely start for the Canucks and he is god awful, so I will be definitely targeting the Flames forwards in this one.  Sean Monahan and Curtis Glencross is the line to target in my opinion, with some exposure to Joe Colbourne sprinkled in. Defenseman Mark Giordano is also a near lock for a point tonight, and he should definitely bring enough production to pay off his $10k salary on Draft Street.

For Vancouver, Zack Kassian has been red hot and his price has not yet risen accordingly. At just $4,600 he’s nearly a must start. Also, Nicklas Jensen is cheap and gets you exposure to the Sedin Twins.

Dallas @ Phoenix

With any goalie in net Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin are always in play. What happens when they go up against a rookie goaltender? Yeah. you know what to do. Mark Visentin is likely to start this one for Phoenix, and even if he doesnt, these two sharp shooters and slick-skating speedsters are sure to get multiple tally’s tonight as they get one more game in before their big series with the Anaheim Ducks. Expect them to see a healthy dose of minutes. I also have exposure to Erik Cole tonight, cause he is super cheap and gets me exposure to the third and fourth lines for Dallas — Phoenix is so bad defensively against depth lines. Finally, Jordie Benn is fairly cheap and he has good skills. .

Nashville @ Minnesota

Head Coach Mike Yeo has explicitly stated that he wants to get Zach Parise, Ryan Suter, Jason Pominville and Mikko Koivu quality ice time in this one to get them ready for the playoffs. After a 7-5 game against the Chicago Blackhawks for the Predators, that is a good enough reason as any, for me to fire up those Minnesota boys tonight. A big stack of those four guys in a GPP is a winning proposition, as is just getting some minor exposure. Of course, Matt Moulson is in play as well since Nashville is terrible defensively. Ilya Bryzgalov is a bit too expensive for me since Karri Ramo is just $18,000 but Bryzgalov should be good tonight.

Fantasy Hockey Daily Fix, Thursday March 10th

Its a big night in the NHL, the last big one of the year for Daily Fantasy. It’s a tricky one too, because tons of teams are resting their starters. For example, John Curry will be starting in net for the Minnesota Wild. Um, who? Yeah, I have no idea who the heck that is either. It’s details like that, which will be important today as the deciding factor when making your lineups. Let’s figure out which games to target and which games to stay away from.

Games to Target:

I want to focus on teams/players that look like that they have not mailed it in as the season has winded down, therefore my first goalie target will be in…

Washington Capitals @ Carolina Hurricanes

Anton Khudobin has a ridiculous .947 save percentage in his past eight games for the Hurricanes, and the Capitals were just eliminated from the playoff race last night. It’s possible he slips up and lets a couple in via Backstrom/Ovechkin, but against the Dallas Stars and Pittsburgh Penguins recently, Khudobin had a .971 and .968 save percentage respectively. In this game, i’d also look at Jeff Skinner. 

Philadelphia Flyers @ Tampa Bay Lightning

Well Ben Bishop has been declared out for the remainder of the regular season, which means Anders Lindback will get the call in net for the Lightning. In net for the Flyers is Ray Emery who has been a surprise his last four games with a .933 save percentage. I’m not buying it however. I’m all over Valtteri Filppula and Ryan Callahan tonight for the Lightning, as well as Victor Hedman. Once again, Steven Stamkos is probably too expensive and he might still see a lot of Sean Couturier despite the Lightning being at home. For me, Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn are the targets for the Flyers. Don’t play either goalie.

*News Note: Michael Kostka is in for the Lightning, and Sami Salo is out with an upper-body injury.

St. Louis Blues @ Minnesota Wild

In their last game, the Blues rested David Backes and Alex Steen (sort of) as both only played 10.9% of the teams even strength time on ice. Many people will be on those guys tonight, and they could pay off with a goal or two in limited ice time with John Curry in net tonight for Minnesota but I just don’t think it’s worth the risk. I’d be rolling out Patrik Berglund T.J. Oshie and Vladimir Sobotka with confidence tonight as a line stack for a GPP. For Minnesota, I think Zach Parise – Jason Pominville have to be in play like always. If the Blues are resting their top forwards on even strength time — which probably will happen — then Parise will have a field day tonight.

Boston Bruins @ Winnipeg Jets

Word just came down that Michael Hutchinson will start in net for the Winnipeg Jets. It’s going to be hard to predict who on the Bruins will play the most, but Carl Soderberg and Reilly Smith look like fabulous targets tonight against a Jets team that gives up a ton of goals when an NHL caliber starting goaltender is in net… let alone when there isn’t one! A full team Bruins stack is reasonable for a GPP, but stick to the players I mentioned for your cash games.

Colorado Avalanche @ Vancouver Canucks

Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Paul Stastny are my main guys in play for this game in cash games. Jacob Markstrom is in net for the  Canucks, and he is absolutely awful. Similarly like the Bruins, an Avs stack for a GPP is a good route, but again, in cash games stick to those players. It’s hard to take risks on nights like tonight, but they could also pay off in a huge way.

Fantasy Hockey Daily Fix, April 5th

Good evening Fantasy Fix readers. Lots of NHL action tonight, let’s hammer out some analysis on the best matchups of the day.

Big Games:

Dallas @ Tampa Bay:

Roll out Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, and Colton Sceviour tonight. They are my top plays for the Stars.

Steven Stamkos continues to be way too expensive for my liking, so I’m going to fade him once again, but I do indeed like him tonight, as well as Victor Hedman. I think the Stars win this game, for whatever that’s worth

Winnipeg @ Toronto:

Gotta roll with the Leafs here, as Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk like always, make for a great play. I’m also on Jake Gardiner and James Reimer tonight. Reimer is one of my top goalie plays today.

Detroit @ Montreal: 

With the Red Wings healthy, it’s hard not to stack them, so I did. I like Pavel Datsyuk, Justin Abdelkader and Daniel Alfredsson as a really nice cheap line stack, and of course I have to also go with Gustav Nyquist. He’s just amazing right now and he is nearly a must-start.

Jonas Gustavsson should be good but he’s too pricey. I think the Wings win this one.

Nashville @ San Jose:

Tough to fade Joe Pavelski tonight given the solid matchup, but if you’re a multiple lineup person you need exposure to him and that top line in San Jose. This game actually should be fairly low scoring, (at least for Nashville) so I love Antti Niemi tonight. He’s a top three goalie play for me.

Big Games:

Dallas @ Washington:

All systems go for the Tyler Seguin – Jamie Benn combination tonight. Throw in Alex Chiasson and you have the perfect amount of exposure to what should be an onslaught of points for the trio. I also like Alex Goligoski tonight as well in this game. I’m going to fade the Washington side of things.

Philadelphia @ St. Louis:

Well this game should get very ugly indeed. David Backes – T.J. Oshie and Alex Steen are all on my radar tonight, as is Patrik Berglund and all of the Blues defenseman. Alas, we can’t play all of the them so go with the first four that I mentioned. I’m not targeting anyone from Philadelphia tonight.

New Jersey @ Buffalo:

Fire up Jaromir Jagr tonight, as well as Cory Schneider in net. Schneider is my top net-minder tonight. I also like Jon Merrill for his super cheap price on DraftStreet. I dont have any exposure to Buffalo tonight.

Calgary @ Toronto:

This game should be quiet interesting, as many many goals should be scored in this one. I really like Sean Monahan and the rest of the Calgary depth lines to provide some sneaky cheap scoring in this one — as well as providing us DFS players with much needed salary relief.

On the Toronto side, you have to feel comfortable loading up Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk tonight in what should be a wide open game style. Don’t fear Jake Gardiner tonight either, he should be good as well.

Big Games:

Detroit Red Wings @ Toronto Maple Leafs:

This game should feature a TON of scoring. I love Phil Kessel, James van Riemsyk, Tyler Bozak tonight as well as Gustav Nyquist and Johan Franzen. Franzen is just $8k on DraftStreet, a wonderful price! Fade the goalies from this game though,

Tampa Bay Lightning @ Buffalo Sabres:

I love Steven Stamkos but I just can’t pay up for him tonight at 17k. Instead, I like Ryan Callahan, Ondrej Palat, and Valtteri Filppula. Also, Tyler Johnson is quite cheap at 8k, and you can also get some exposure to Teddy Purcell and Alex Killorn for cheap, since you shouldnt pay for Stamkos. I don’t like anyone on Buffalo tonight.

Dallas Stars @ St. Louis Blues:

With the news that Tyler Seguin is likely out for Dallas, as well as a slew of others, I am all over the Blues tonight for sure. David Backes – T.J. Oshie – Alex Steen are always in play for me, but i think Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Sobotka are the sneaky cheap duo to own tonight. They are just 12k combined. Ryan Miller is my #1 goaltender tonight without question! Finally, Kevin Shattenkirk has a very friendly price tag. I like him as well

New Jersey Devils @ New York Islanders 

With Anders Nilsson suiting up in this one, I’m all over the Devils. My favorite plays tonight for them are Jon Merrill, Marek Zidlicky, Patrik Elias, and Adam Henrique. Also, Damien Brunner is fine too, but he’s too inconsistent for me. In cash games, Jaromir Jagr is always a great play, but I don’t have exposure to him tonight.

Winnipeg Jets @ Los Angeles Kings

With the Kings getting to face Ondrej Pavelec, its all systems go for any and all members of the Kings. I like the cheap options from each line — these guys also happen to be the goal scorers usually. Marion Gaborik and Jeff Carter are on my teams tonight, as is Jake Muzzin and Drew Doughty, in spots where i can afford him.

Montreal Canadiens @ Florida Panthers

All systems go for the top line on Montreal. I love Max Pacioretty, Thomas Vanek, and David Desharnais tonight. Vincent Trocheck is super sneaky for the Panthers in this game as well

Big Games:

New York Islanders @ Tampa Bay Lightning

All systems go for a perfect TB Powerplay #1 stack. Steven Stamkos (despite hefty 17k price), Valtteri Filppula, Victor Hedman, and Ryan Callahan are excellent plays for a stack.

Also, Sami Salo if you would rather not pay top dollar for Hedman, is a great pick! Chris Rooney will be refereeing this game and he calls the most penalties in the league. The Lightning powerplay is great and the Islanders are terrible. Load up.

Buffalo Sabres @ Nashville Predators

Shea Weber, more Shea Weber, and more Shea Weber. ALL OF THE SHEA WEBER. He should be on the ice a ton against Buffalo’s top line of Tyler Ennis - Drew Stafford. Those two are also awful defensively so Weber is almost a lock for a point tonight. I also like Matt Cullen – Mike Fisher – Patric Hornqvist as well. That line has been solid lately, and again, Buffalo is terrible. Carter Hutton is my #1 goaltender tonight, with Martin Brodeur a close second (but only because of price relief)

Vancouver Canucks @ Colorado Avalanche

This game will be great for GPP’s. It’s tough to play Colorado in cash games since you never really know which line will go off, but I am running two separate Colorado Stacks tonight: Matt Duchene – Ryan O’Reilly – Nathan MacKinnon – Tyson Barrie and in another GPP i have Gabriel Landeskog – Jamie McGinn – Paul Stastny – Erik Johnson

I’d fade the Canucks tonight.
