William Karlsson Contributed as a Spot Starter in Fantasy

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

William Karlsson had an OK fantasy season if you were expecting to have him on the bench and only start in certain weeks. He is the number #36 ranked center and the #168 ranked skater overall. His ranking drops to the #45 ranked center when basing it on average fantasy points. He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 1.9 FPs in his first 27 games and 2.3 FP in his final 28 games. His fantasy production is more volatile that most players based on having a relatively high standard deviation. When he is good, he is really good but when he is off, he is really off. He averaged 1.8 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 11 fantasy points.
