Nathan MacKinnon is projected for 6.71 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #13 ranked center 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 ranked above Logan Couture but behind Nicklas Backstrom the rest of the week. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#34). He is projected for 6.39 fantasy points.
