Darnell Nurse's Fantasy Scouting Report

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft Darnell Nurse as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 128 projected fantasy points puts him at #23 behind Neal Pionk and ahead of Oliver Ekman-Larsson. He has averaged 1.96 fantasy points in his past 82 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 1.62 fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 76%, he is the #39 most highly owned defenseman. Darnell Nurse is expected to slightly improve on last season's #26 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Darnell Nurse is projected for 3.77 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #20 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 Mattias Ekholm but behind Torey Krug the rest of the week. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#31). He is projected for 4.43 fantasy points.
