Nic Dowd's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

He is the number #89 ranked center and the #439 ranked skater overall. His center ranking drops to #91 when basing it on average fantasy points. He showed improvement from his start of the season to the middle of his season, but then his production dropped off. In his middle 21 games he averaged 1.4 fantasy points which was higher than his start (0.7 FP) and his ending average (1 FP). His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. He averaged 1 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 9 fantasy points.

SportsLine has the best NHL picks and Daily Fantasy Lineups. In the off-season check out our coverage of all major leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, Horses, NASCAR, and Golf).
