Drew Doughty's Rest of Season Value is Surprising

REST OF SEASON VALUE

As of 1/18, Drew Doughty is the #19 ranked defenseman based on ownership percentage (97%). The market expects more than the projections do. He is only projected to be the #34 defenseman. This is not necessarily a player you would start every active week. He is the lowest rated of the 4 defensemen (Ryan Suter, Mattias Ekholm, Zach Werenski) with this market rank (97% Owned). He is projected for 48 fantasy points in 33 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #33 highest average. The market ranks Drew Doughty behind Suter and above Werenski but the projections rank Werenski over Drew Doughty.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Brodie (1.7 FP), and Erik Johnson (1.7 FP). Starting in 81% of leagues he is expected to produce 2.5 fantasy points (WK 17).
