Every week, we’ll mine the waiver wire for widely available assets to help your fantasy hockey squad, whether you favor dynasty or the re-draft format, and we’ll toss in some tips for DFS players out there. Then, we will look at some former go-to fantasy assets who might be overvalued — in the short or long term — for one reason or another, and provide a list of players we now deem droppable in standard fantasy leagues.
The thing is, when I was in high school and elementary school, I was the worst at orals, Luongo said. I couldn’t talk. If I had to memorize stuff and then say it as I wrote it, it never came out right.
The first player on the leaderboard available in more than 50 percent of ESPN leagues is Sami Vatanen, who I highlighted in this week’s Forecaster as a potential major contributor now that he’s secured the power-play quarterback role for the New Jersey Devils. Vatanen is tied for 30th in the league with 19 assists since Jan. 1. Another player highlighted in Friday’s Forecaster, Ryan Spooner, sits 36th in the league with 18 assists in 2018. Ten of those have come in seven games with the New York Rangers.
Paired up with Samuel Girard at even strength, Nemeth’s plus-19 since Jan. 1 trails only William Karlsson (plus-23) and Malkin (plus-21). Of course, the rest of Nemeth’s fantasy profile is lacking, but in the right situation, you could plug him into your lineup for a boost in plus/minus. The better choice, if you’re not too late, would be Ryan Ellis. Still available (for some reason) in 23 percent of ESPN leagues, Ellis also has a plus-19 rating since Jan. Myles White Jersey 1. His also comes with six goals and 16 assists.
The Rockies didn’t spend all that money on their bullpen to become sellers, but right now, I have them fourth in the NL West, not far behind the Diamondbacks and Giants.
Nolan Arenado has one more year of arbitration eligibility, so I would think an extension with the Rockies is far more likely than him leaving Colorado at the deadline. After all, if you’re not doing everything you can to make that guy the face of your franchise, what is really the point of anything? But the return on an Arenado deal would be huge, so it’s something to keep in the back of your head.
Game Womens Leonard Floyd Jersey More likely, deadline deals would probably include free-agents-to-be LeMahieu and Blackmon. If the Rox are in the playoff chase, it would be surprising to see them deal top prospect Brendan Rodgers, especially with a possible LeMahieu departure freeing up a spot in the middle of the diamond. McMahon looks like Colorado’s Opening Day first baseman, but if he’s not ready, his versatility could bring back a quality arm for the stretch run.
