Andrei Svechnikov's Rest of Season Value is Surprising


Ranking by ownership percentage (60%), Andrei Svechnikov is expected to be the #34 left wing for the rest of the season. The projections indicate that he is likely to fall short of high market expectations. The projections have him 24 spots lower in the rankings. Most owners expect to start Svechnikov every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. He is projected for 48 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#67) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Andrei Svechnikov behind Keller and above Ferland but the projections rank Ferland over Andrei Svechnikov.
