Melker Karlsson's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Melker Karlsson left last night’s game early with a lower body injury. He was seen in a walking boot after the game. We just get an update on the extent of the injury in the next couple days. He has five goals and five assists this season in 56 games played, so he won’t make too much of a difference out of the lineup. The line will not shift if he is unable to play in their next game.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Melker Karlsson may be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues or may be a decent waiver wire pick up. His 6 projected fantasy points puts him at #126 behind Mitchell Stephens and ahead of Matt Martin. He has averaged 0.56 fantasy points in his past 137 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 0.48 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#139) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. Melker Karlsson is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #121 fantasy position rank.

MELKER KARLSSON WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Melker Karlsson is projected for 0.75 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of the week in week 24 which only ranks him as the #122 projected left wing and not a fantasy relevant player. 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 Phil Di Giuseppe but behind Andrew Cogliano the rest of the week. Week 25 will not be as good based on projected rank (#128). He is projected for 1.28 fantasy points.

FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND ACTUAL STATS

The tables below show projected stats (totals and averages) for the rest of the season and upcoming weeks. Also included are actual stats from the current and last season.
