Rasmus Dahlin and Marc-Andre Fleury Will Under Deliver the Rest of the Season

Anthony DeAngelo
 NYR 12% Own

Our projections run counter to general expectations. Anthony DeAngelo is projected to be a top tier fantasy defenseman. As of 11/8, Anthony DeAngelo is the #103 ranked defenseman based on ownership percentage (12%). He is projected to be the #35 defenseman. 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 defenseman option available. Of the 3 defensemen (Justin Braun, Brad Hunt) with this market rank (12% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 92 fantasy points in 64 remaining games. His projected average FP rank is the same as his rest of season total rank. The market ranks Anthony DeAngelo behind Braun and above Hunt but the projections rank Anthony DeAngelo over Braun.

Ryan O'Reilly
 STL 95% Own

Based on ownership percentage (95%), Ryan O'Reilly has a market rank of #25 among centers. He is projected to be the #9 center. 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 center option available. Of the 3 centers (Eric Staal, Anze Kopitar) with this market rank (95% Owned), he is the top rated one. He is projected for 216 fantasy points in 66 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#10) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Ryan O'Reilly behind Staal and above Kopitar but the projections rank Ryan O'Reilly over Staal.

Matt Murray
 PIT 88% Own

His latest projection based rank among goalies is #3. As of 11/8, Matt Murray is the #8 ranked goalie based on ownership percentage (88%). Our projections indicate that Matt Murray 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 9 88% owned goalies, he is ranked #3. He is projected for 315 fantasy points in 54 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#12) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Matt Murray behind Rinne and above Hellebuyck but the projections rank Matt Murray over Rinne.

Mike Hoffman
 FLA 89% Own

Most already consider Mike Hoffman to be a good starting right wing, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Based on ownership percentage (89%), Mike Hoffman has a market rank of #22 among right wings. He is projected to be the #11 right wing. 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 right wing value, we advise you to hold on to him. He is projected for 178 fantasy points in 68 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#18) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Mike Hoffman behind Smith and above Simmonds but the projections rank Mike Hoffman over Smith.

J.T. Miller
 TB 89% Own

Most already consider J.T. Miller to be a good starting left wing, but the projections indicate he is an elite fantasy option. Ranking by ownership percentage (89%), J.T. Miller is expected to be the #24 left wing for the rest of the season. The projections have him 12 spots higher in the rankings. 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 left wing option available. He is projected for 175 fantasy points in 64 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#13) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks J.T. Miller behind Kovalchuk and above Guentzel but the projections rank J.T. Miller over Kovalchuk.

Bad Fantasy Values for the Rest of the Season

Rasmus Dahlin
 BUF 88% Own

Rasmus Dahlin has a market rank of 31 and a projection based rank of 205.

Marc-Andre Fleury
 LV 88% Own

Based on ownership percentage (88%), Marc-Andre Fleury has a market rank of #2 among goalies. The projections indicate that he is likely to fall short of high market expectations.

Andrei Svechnikov
 CAR 69% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (69%), Andrei Svechnikov is expected to be the #31 right wing for the rest of the season. The market expects more than the projections do. The projections have him 66 spots lower in the rankings. This is not necessarily a player you would start every active week. He is projected for 59 fantasy points in 64 remaining games. He has a lower rank (#107) based on projected fantasy average. The market ranks Andrei Svechnikov behind Eberle and above Brown but the projections rank Brown over Andrei Svechnikov.

Sebastian Aho
 CAR 99% Own

Ranking by ownership percentage (99%), Sebastian Aho is expected to be the #13 center for the rest of the season. Based on the latest projections the market is overrating Aho. His projection based center rank is #27. Most owners expect to start Aho every active week, but we think they might have to bench him in certain situations. He is the lowest rated of the 3 centers (Nicklas Backstrom, Brayden Point) with this market rank (99% Owned). He is projected for 160 fantasy points in 64 remaining games. Based on average FPs, he is even better with the #26 highest average. The market ranks Sebastian Aho behind Point and above Backstrom but the projections rank Backstrom over Sebastian Aho.
