Dominik Kubalik, Justin Williams and Alex Galchenyuk are Three Wings To Pick Up Off Waiver Wire

There are 21 wings who are projected to be in the top 60 (short term) and who could be available on the waiver wire as they are owned in less than 65% of leagues. Dominik Kubalik is projected for 10 fantasy points in 5 games which is good enough to be ranked #22 and tops among players who could be on the waiver wire based on relative lower ownership percentage. Other considerations at wing include Justin Williams and Alex Galchenyuk. There are 14 wings whose projected rank over the next 10 days is much better than their actual fantasy rank. Mikko Rantanen, at #5, is the highest ranking wing of this 'must start' group. There are 11 wings who are typically starting fantasy wings but are projected for fewer points than normal. Alex Killorn, for example, is projected to be just the #60 wing during the upcoming stretch and some owners may have better options.
