Nikita Zaitsev's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Nikita Zaitsev may be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues or may be a decent waiver wire pick up. His 2 projected fantasy points puts him at #210 behind Jakob Chychrun and ahead of Mario Ferraro. He has averaged 0.69 fantasy points in his past 138 games, which is more than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 0.23 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#235) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. Nikita Zaitsev is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #158 fantasy position rank.

NIKITA ZAITSEV WEEK 24 AND 25 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Nikita Zaitsev is projected for 0.49 fantasy points in 2 games the rest of the week in week 24 which only ranks him as the #182 projected defenseman and not a fantasy relevant player. 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 Jason Demers but behind Markus Nutivaara the rest of the week. Week 25 will not be as good based on projected rank (#198). He is projected for 0.65 fantasy points.
