Marc-Andre Fleury and Elias Pettersson Will Under Deliver the Rest of the Season

Welcome to the newly updated version of Scout. We have decided to embrace our name and re-launch as a sports forecasting and statistics service geared towards delivering Scouting Reports for every league, team and fantasy relevant player. Our league reports focus on Power Rankings, Injuries, Season Futures, and coverage of every Fantasy 'market' (season, current week, DFS). We encourage you to check out our new NHL page and hope you enjoy the new Scout.

Connor Hellebuyck
 WPG 87% Own

His latest projection based rank among goalies is #1. Based on ownership percentage (87%), Connor Hellebuyck has a market rank of #7 among goalies. Our projections indicate that Connor Hellebuyck is underrated by the market. Even as an established quality fantasy option, if he lives up to projections he is still undervalued and there could be an opportunity to buy 'low'. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better goalie option available. Of the 4 goalies (Sergei Bobrovsky, Martin Jones, Andrei Vasilevskiy) with this market rank (87% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 170 fantasy points in 28 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#5) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Connor Hellebuyck behind Jones and above Bobrovsky but the projections rank Connor Hellebuyck over Jones.

Brandon Pirri
 LV 36% Own

Many would be surprised to see Brandon Pirri projected as an elite fantasy right wing. As of 1/16, Brandon Pirri is the #47 ranked right wing based on ownership percentage (36%). He is projected to be the #9 right wing. There could be an opportunity to acquire him while the market is still not as high on them as the projections are. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better right wing option available. He is projected for more FPs than Jakob Silfverberg who has virtually the same market rank (36% Owned) as Pirri. He is projected for 106 fantasy points in 32 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #7 highest average. The market ranks Brandon Pirri behind Silfverberg and above Athanasiou but the projections rank Brandon Pirri over Silfverberg.

Alexander Edler
 VAN 72% Own

Most already consider Alexander Edler to be a good starting defenseman, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Ranking by ownership percentage (72%), Alexander Edler is expected to be the #43 defenseman for the rest of the season. His projection based defenseman rank is #15. Even if he is highly owned, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Owners should hold onto him and probably decline offers unless there is an even better defenseman option available. He is projected for 67 fantasy points in 34 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#16) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Alexander Edler behind Heiskanen and above Pionk but the projections rank Alexander Edler over Heiskanen.

Brian Boyle
 NJ 2% Own

Based on ownership percentage (2%), Brian Boyle has a market rank of #110 among left wings. His projection based left wing rank is #48. There could be an opportunity to acquire him while the market is still not as high on them as the projections are. Unless someone offers an even better left wing value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 56 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#51) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Brian Boyle behind Ennis and above Wilson but the projections rank Brian Boyle over Ennis.

Travis Zajac
 NJ 10% Own

Based on ownership percentage (10%), Travis Zajac has a market rank of #74 among centers. His projection based center rank is #48. There could be a nice opportunity to acquire him before the market realizes he is undervalued. Unless someone offers an even better center value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 65 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#51) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Travis Zajac behind Sissons and above Eller but the projections rank Travis Zajac over Sissons.

Bad Fantasy Values for the Rest of the Season

Marc-Andre Fleury
 LV 88% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (88%), Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to be the #2 goalie for the rest of the season. The market expects more than the projections do. His projection based goalie rank is #12. This is not necessarily a player you would start every active week. He is the lowest rated of the 4 goalies (Frederik Andersen, Pekka Rinne, Braden Holtby) with this market rank (88% Owned). He is projected for 146 fantasy points in 26 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#16) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Marc-Andre Fleury behind Rinne and above Holtby but the projections rank Holtby over Marc-Andre Fleury.

Elias Pettersson
 VAN 98% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (98%), Elias Pettersson is expected to be the #19 center for the rest of the season. Projected to be a backup center his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters. Since they are overrated by the market, there is the potential to SELL HIGH before other league owners catch on. Aleksander Barkov has virtually the same market rank (98% Owned) and is projected for more points than Pettersson. He is projected for 58 fantasy points in 19 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #16 highest average. The market ranks Elias Pettersson behind Barkov and above O'Reilly but the projections rank O'Reilly over Elias Pettersson.

Rasmus Dahlin
 BUF 92% Own

As of 1/16, Rasmus Dahlin is the #27 ranked defenseman based on ownership percentage (92%). The projections indicate that he is likely to fall short of high market expectations. The projections have him 46 spots lower in the rankings. Most owners expect to start Dahlin every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. He is the lowest rated of the 3 defensemen (Shayne Gostisbehere, Charlie McAvoy) with this market rank (92% Owned). He is projected for 38 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#71) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Rasmus Dahlin behind Gardiner and above McAvoy but the projections rank McAvoy over Rasmus Dahlin.

Patric Hornqvist
 PIT 86% Own

As of 1/16, Patric Hornqvist is the #24 ranked right wing based on ownership percentage (86%). Projected to be a backup right wing his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters. Since they are overrated by the market, there is the potential to SELL HIGH before other league owners catch on. He is projected for 48 fantasy points in 18 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #18 highest average. The market ranks Patric Hornqvist behind Gourde and above Tuch but the projections rank Tuch over Patric Hornqvist.

Jeff Skinner
 BUF 99% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Jeff Skinner is expected to be the #10 left wing for the rest of the season. The market expects more than the projections do. He is only projected to be the #24 left wing. This is not necessarily a player you would start every active week. He is the lowest rated of the 5 left wings (Jamie Benn, Taylor Hall, Leon Draisaitl, Matthew Tkachuk) with this market rank (99% Owned). He is projected for 76 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#25) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Jeff Skinner behind Tkachuk and above Benn but the projections rank Benn over Jeff Skinner.
