    Brandon Saad had a decent season as a solid fantasy starter. He was the number #72 ranked wing and the #227 ranked skater overall. His ranking drops slightly if you base things on average fantasy points where he is the #88 wing. Saad did not show a clear upward or downward trend as the season progressed. He averaged 1.8 FPs in his first 23 games, 1.2 in the middle of his season and 1.8 in his final 1.8 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 1.6 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 11 fantasy points.
