Nikita Kucherov's Fantasy Scouting Report

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Nikita Kucherov will be an elite fantasy starter. His 347 projected fantasy points puts him ahead of Patrick Kane making him our #1 ranked right wing. He has averaged 4.3 fantasy points in his past 82 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 4.39 fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite right wing. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Last season he was also the #1 ranked right wing.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Nikita Kucherov is projected for 12.08 fantasy points in 3 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #1 ranked guard and a must start for most owners. 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 the highest ranked guard the rest of the week, ahead of Mitch Marner. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#9). He is projected for 8.48 fantasy points.
