William Karlsson's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

William Karlsson signed an eight-year, $47.2 million contract with the Vegas Golden Knights yesterday. He is the only player in franchise history to appear in all the Golden Knights regular and post-season games. He had a career-high in goals two years ago with 43 and followed up his first season in Vegas with a goal total of 24. This seems like a fair deal for both sides, Karlsson gets paid and the Knights keep their top line forward for years to come.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Draft William Karlsson as a weekly fantasy starter in 2019-2020. His 172 projected fantasy points puts him at #33 behind David Krejci and ahead of Jordan Staal. He has averaged 1.83 fantasy points in his past 82 games, which is less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.18 fantasy points. He is slightly overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 88%, he is the #31 most highly owned center. William Karlsson is expected to slightly improve on last season's #36 fantasy position rank.
