DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Nathan MacKinnon will be an elite fantasy starter. His 271 projected fantasy points puts him at #4 behind Sidney Crosby and ahead of Brayden Point. He has averaged 3.4 fantasy points in his past 82 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. He is projected to average 3.43 fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite center. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Nathan MacKinnon is expected to come up slightly short of last season's #2 fantasy position rank.

WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

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.
