|Ilya Kovalchuk's Fantasy Scouting Report|
SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE
Ilya Kovlachuk was traded to the Caps for a third-round draft pick. He has 22 points in 39 games this season including 13 points in 22 games with the Canadiens. This is a good move for the Caps as it is a low risk, high reward trade. The line for tonight’s game did not shift due to this trade. He is projected as the 10th best fantasy winger for the rest of the season.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Expect Ilya Kovalchuk to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 29 projected fantasy points puts him at #10 behind Brock Boeser and ahead of Travis Konecny. He has averaged 1.17 fantasy points in his past 110 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.4 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#12) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 58%, he is the #35 most highly owned right wing. Ilya Kovalchuk is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #77 fantasy position rank.
ILYA KOVALCHUK WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK
Ilya Kovalchuk is projected for 2.62 fantasy points in one game the rest of the week in week 24 which ranks him as the #48 projected right wing for the week and a starter for most fantasy teams. This is projected to be a slightly better than average game with more fantasy points than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above Mitch Marner but behind Brandon Hagel the rest of the week. Week 25 will be better based on projected rank (#6). He is projected for 9.8 fantasy points.
