SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE
Chris Kreider is facing a 4-6 week recovery after breaking his foot while blocking a shot. He should be out for the rest of the regular season but he could be ready for a playoff run if the Rangers make it. He is ranked as the 15th best fantasy winger this season, although that will worsen with his injury. He injured his foot last week, so the line will not shift due to his absence.
REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK
Based on average projected fantasy points, Chris Kreider is the #7 fantasy left wing with an average of 2.6 fantasy points per game. But with him projected to play just 3 games in you will need to wait on him to deliver value. In 63 games this season he has averaged 2.37 which ranks him as the #14 left wing based on average.
