Marc-Andre Fleury and Rasmus Dahlin 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.

Brandon Pirri
 LV 26% Own

Many would be surprised to see Brandon Pirri projected as an elite fantasy left wing. Based on ownership percentage (26%), Brandon Pirri has a market rank of #43 among left wings. He is projected to be the #11 left wing. 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 106 fantasy points in 35 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #8 highest average. The market ranks Brandon Pirri behind Foligno and above Donato but the projections rank Brandon Pirri over Foligno.

Tuukka Rask
 BOS 85% Own

As of 1/9, Tuukka Rask is the #13 ranked goalie based on ownership percentage (85%). His projection based goalie rank is #4. Even if he is highly owned, he is still undervalued and if you act quickly there is a clear buy low opportunity. Unless someone offers an even better goalie value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for more FPs than Carey Price who has virtually the same market rank (85% Owned) as Rask. He is projected for 175 fantasy points in 32 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#21) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Tuukka Rask behind Bishop and above Price but the projections rank Tuukka Rask over Bishop.

Danick Martel
 TB 0% Own

Danick Martel has a projection based rank of 42 which makes him a fantasy relevant player. He is projected for 69 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#47) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Danick Martel behind Gaborik and above Kuhnhackl but the projections rank Danick Martel over Gaborik.

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 #44 defenseman for the rest of the season. His projection based defenseman rank is #15. 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 defenseman option available. He is projected for more FPs than Cam Fowler who has virtually the same market rank (72% Owned) as Edler. He is projected for 75 fantasy points in 36 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Alexander Edler behind Heiskanen and above Fowler but the projections rank Alexander Edler over Heiskanen.

Patrice Bergeron
 BOS 99% Own

Most already consider Patrice Bergeron to be a good starting center, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Based on ownership percentage (99%), Patrice Bergeron has a market rank of #15 among centers. He is projected to be the #6 center. 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'. Unless someone offers an even better center value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 145 fantasy points in 39 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#7) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Patrice Bergeron behind Monahan and above Backstrom but the projections rank Patrice Bergeron over Monahan.

Bad Fantasy Values for the Rest of the Season

Marc-Andre Fleury
 LV 88% Own

Based on ownership percentage (88%), Marc-Andre Fleury has a market rank of #2 among goalies. The market expects more than the projections do. His projection based goalie rank is #17. Most owners expect to start Fleury every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. He is the lowest rated of the 7 goalies (Frederik Andersen, Pekka Rinne, Martin Jones, Braden Holtby, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Connor Hellebuyck) with this market rank (88% Owned). He is projected for 155 fantasy points in 28 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#20) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Marc-Andre Fleury behind Vasilevskiy and above Hellebuyck but the projections rank Hellebuyck over Marc-Andre Fleury.

Rasmus Dahlin
 BUF 92% Own

Based on ownership percentage (92%), Rasmus Dahlin has a market rank of #29 among defensemen. The projections indicate that he is likely to fall short of high market expectations. He is only projected to be the #116 defenseman. Most owners expect to start Dahlin every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. He is projected for 31 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#123) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Rasmus Dahlin behind Ekman-Larsson and above McAvoy but the projections rank McAvoy over Rasmus Dahlin.

Rickard Rakell
 ANA 79% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (79%), Rickard Rakell is expected to be the #24 left wing for the rest of the season. Projected to be a backup left wing his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters. He is projected for 34 fantasy points in 21 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #45 highest average. The market ranks Rickard Rakell behind Johnson and above Drouin but the projections rank Drouin over Rickard Rakell.

J.T. Miller
 TB 75% Own

As of 1/9, J.T. Miller is the #34 ranked right wing based on ownership percentage (75%). Projected to be a backup right wing his value could reach market expectations if there is an injury to the starters. He is a clearcut starter with a per game average FP rank of #25 so owners will need to determine if they can wait until he is back (expected 1/15/2019). He is projected for 44 fantasy points in 18 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #25 highest average. The market ranks J.T. Miller behind Kapanen and above Teravainen but the projections rank Teravainen over J.T. Miller.

Casey Mittelstadt
 BUF 31% Own

As of 1/9, Casey Mittelstadt is the #52 ranked center based on ownership percentage (31%). Based on the latest projections the market is overrating Mittelstadt. The projections have him 70 spots lower in the rankings. This is not necessarily a player you would start every active week. He is projected for 20 fantasy points in 38 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#134) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Casey Mittelstadt behind Strome and above Patrick but the projections rank Patrick over Casey Mittelstadt.
