Jonathan Toews Fantasy Value: Buy, Sell or Hold?

REST OF SEASON VALUE

As of 1/18, Jonathan Toews is the #27 ranked center based on ownership percentage (93%). The market expects more than the projections do. He is only projected to be the #44 center. This is not necessarily a player you would start every active week. He is the lowest rated of the 3 centers (Matt Duchene, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins) with this market rank (93% Owned). He is projected for 69 fantasy points in 32 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #42 highest average. The market ranks Jonathan Toews behind Nugent-Hopkins and above Duchene but the projections rank Duchene over Jonathan Toews.
