John Carlson's Fantasy Scouting Report

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft John Carlson as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 190 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Kris Letang and ahead of Tyson Barrie. He has averaged 3.34 fantasy points in his past 80 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.41 fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite defenseman. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. John Carlson is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #4 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

John Carlson is projected for 6.55 fantasy points in 3 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #6 ranked center and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Victor Hedman but behind Jake Muzzin the rest of the week. Week 2 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#7). He is projected for 6.31 fantasy points.
