|Andrei Vasilevskiy's Fantasy Scouting Report|
DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK
Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Andrei Vasilevskiy will be an elite fantasy starter. His 386 projected fantasy points puts him ahead of Tuukka Rask making him our #1 ranked goalie. He has averaged 7.78 fantasy points in his past 53 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 5.93 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#3) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 85%, he is the #2 most highly owned goalie. Last season he was also the #1 ranked goalie.

WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK
Andrei Vasilevskiy is projected for 17.01 fantasy points in 3 games the rest of the week which is good enough to be the #1 ranked guard 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 the highest ranked guard the rest of the week, ahead of Frederik Andersen. Week 2 will not be as good based on projected rank (#47). He is projected for 5.59 fantasy points.
