van Riemsdyk Fantasy Week 17 Projection vs Expectation

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

Based on start%, Irwin is expected to produce more fantasy points than Trevor van Riemsdyk but the projections say otherwise. Kulak is the player that the market has ranked 1 spot below Trevor van Riemsdyk but the projections have Kulak putting up more fantasy points. He is starting in no leagues and with a projected defenseman rank of #109 in week 17 it makes sense.

He is projected for 0.83 fantasy points in week 17 (#109 D) in 2 games.
