Fantasy NHL Review: Top Overachievers and Busts by Position

Our goal with this analysis is to not only tell you who the best players will be, but also tell you who the most underrated and overrated players are. At this point in the season Connor Hellebuyck is the number one goalie averaging 5 FPs per game. And he has exceeded expectations. Based on average draft position he was expected to be the #20 goalie. Another good value this season is William Karlsson, the #32 ranked center based on total fantasy points who has greatly exceeded his draft expectation (#121 highest drafted center). On the other hand, a lot was expected from the #21 drafted wing, Jeff Skinner, but he was just the #145 wing based on total fantasy production making him the biggest disappointment among players who played a significant number of games. The table below shows the Top 5 Fantasy Players by Position, the Top 5 Overachievers and the Biggest Busts
