Mikko Rantanen's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Mikko Rantanen will be out for multiple weeks with an upper body injury. He was injured after sliding into the boards awkwardly while being tripped. It is not known exactly how long he will be out, but it does not look like he will be available until after March. He has 19 goals and 41 points this season in only 42 games, so this is a massive loss for the Aves. Ideally, they would just like him back for the playoffs at this point. The line for the rest of their games without Rantanen will definitely favor the opposing team. He was the ninth best fantasy winger this season and he only played in 42 games.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Mikko Rantanen to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 35 projected fantasy points puts him at #4 behind Patrick Kane and ahead of Mike Hoffman. He has averaged 3.09 fantasy points in his past 116 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 2.89 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#5) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 98%, he is the #12 most highly owned right wing. Mikko Rantanen is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #29 fantasy position rank.

MIKKO RANTANEN WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Mikko Rantanen is projected for 5.97 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #4 ranked right wing and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points per game than he is projected to average per game the rest of the season. He is ranked above David Perron but behind Patrick Kane the rest of the week. Week 25 will not be as good based on projected rank (#12). He is projected for 9.11 fantasy points.
