Mikko Rantanen: A Young Player on the Rise

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Mikko Rantanen is the #40 ranked fantasy skater this season and the #8 wing. His value would have been even better if he played as many games as other elite wings. Based on average fantasy points he is the #6 wing. His production dropped throughout the season. In his first 24 games he averaged 4.7 FPs and that declined to 1.7 in his final 25 games. He is young, so his late season drop-off should not be an indicator of an overall downward trend heading into next season. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. Our projected ceiling for Rantanen when he 'goes off' is 13 fantasy points (his average is 3.3FPs).
