Brandon Saad's Rest of Season Value is Surprising

REST OF SEASON VALUE

Ranking by ownership percentage (36%), Brandon Saad is expected to be the #44 left wing for the rest of the season. The market expects more than the projections do. He is only projected to be the #72 left wing. This is not necessarily a player you would start every active week. He is projected for 41 fantasy points in 32 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#73) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Brandon Saad behind Galchenyuk and above Killorn but the projections rank Killorn over Brandon Saad.
