David Savard's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

David Savard is not a fantasy star but was worth starting most weeks. He is the number #56 ranked defender and the #234 ranked skater overall. Avoiding serious injury and playing 83 games helped him maintain his value. Based on average fantasy points he is the #77 defender. He showed an upward trajectory as the season went on. He averaged 1.2 FPs in his first 27 games and 2.1 FP in his final 28 games. His standard deviation divided by his average is 1.92 which is close to the league ratio. He averaged 1.5 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 8 fantasy points.

SportsLine has the best NHL picks and Daily Fantasy Lineups. In the off-season check out our coverage of all major leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, Horses, NASCAR, and Golf).

His FanDuel average was 7.8 points and on DraftKings it was 2.2 per game.
