|Leon Draisaitl's Fantasy Scouting Report|
DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK
Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Leon Draisaitl will be an elite fantasy starter. His 305 projected fantasy points puts him ahead of Brad Marchand making him our #1 ranked left wing. He has averaged 3.62 fantasy points in his past 82 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 3.87 fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #4 most highly owned left wing. Last season he was also the #1 ranked left wing.
