REST OF SEASON VALUE

Ranking by ownership percentage (41%), Ilya Kovalchuk is expected to be the #48 right wing for the rest of the season. Projected to be a backup right wing his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters. He is projected for 5 fantasy points in 6 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #97 highest average. The market ranks Ilya Kovalchuk behind Fiala and above Donato but the projections rank Donato over Ilya Kovalchuk.

Make sure to visit Sportsline for DFS and betting advice. We have picks on every game and line.

His rank in goals is better than his SOG rank indicating a relatively high shooting %.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

When compared to other right wings in week 26 these are 5 better options at lower start percentages: Mikkel Boedker (2.9 FP), Ryan Spooner (3.5 FP), Loui Eriksson (5.3 FP), Michael Frolik (9.3 FP), and Colton Sceviour (3.2 FP). Starting in 14% of leagues he is expected to produce 5.4 fantasy points (WK 26). At his start percentage, he is expected to be the #50 right wing of the week, but he is projected to be the #99 right wing. In terms of total fantasy points he projected to come up 2.9 short of expectations. His per game projected FP average is 0.6 which is less than his actual per game average (0.9).

He is projected for 2.49 fantasy points in week 26 (#99 RW) in 4 games.


  • Kovalchuk is not in the 3/24 DFS player pool, but one player who is in the Sportsline FanDuel optimal lineup is Ryan Dzingel, and Patrick Kane is in the DraftKings optimal lineup.

    He was the number #172 ranked wing and the #456 ranked skater overall. His wing ranking drops to #193 when basing it on average fantasy points. He peaked early in the season. He averaged 1.3 FPs in his first 19 games and 0.8 FP in his final 20 games.

He averaged 0.9 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 8 fantasy points.

    WEEKLY FANTASY RECAP

    He has averaged 2.5 fantasy points per week and had 11 weeks where he exceeded that by 20% and 9 'bad' weeks where he came up 20% short of his average.

    DAILY FANTASY SEASON RECAP

    His FanDuel average was 8.4 points and on DraftKings it was 2.3 per game. We looked at all of his games that were between the 10th and 90th percentile where the 10th percentile is his floor and the 90th is his ceiling. When he was bad in DFS, he was really bad with a floor of zero points. When he was good, he was very good with a DraftKings ceiling of 4.5 and 18.9 on FanDuel. He has had more bad FanDuel games (below average by 20%) than good games (20% above average), and the same was true on DraftKings. We are only including games where they were in the daily fantasy slate and played.
