Fantasy hockey dynasty ranks: What will the NHL look like in 2027

Well, we know their age. We also know what kind of production they have put up in the past. But beyond those two criteria, we don’t really know a whole lot. We can certainly guess a lot. In January 2018, ESPN asked me to do the first one of these dynasty rankings. While I didn’t […]

Fantasy hockey rankings update: Underrated defenseman picks

In an attempt to illustrate this, let’s look at fantasy points in the league since Jan. 1. Kris Letang leads all NHLers with 71.4 fantasy points since Jan. 1, so that is our pinnacle for production.

Fantasy hockey rankings update: Top pickups for the week ahead

Evgenii Dadonov, W, Vegas Golden Knights: So this is how the Knights get Jack Eichel under the salary cap. Mark Stone is going the Nikita Kucherov route and going on long-term injury reserve to clear the space for Eichel’s Vegas debut Wednesday.

Fantasy hockey rankings update: How to prep for the trade deadline

The wrinkle here, however, is that unless you have a league manager that adjusted your settings, the default fantasy trade deadline in ESPN leagues is March 18.

Anthony Duclair, W, Florida Panthers (15:26 average ice time, 8.00 FPP60): To set the tone, we’ll start with someone you probably can’t get your mitts on in your league.

Fantasy hockey rankings: Which goalies are trending up?

During this rough month of COVID-hampered play, we had some disparity in ice time, to be sure. Some teams played as many as 11 times, while the Ottawa Senators, for example, had only four games. With such a range, it’s difficult to pin down the fantasy landscape. But perhaps having a closer look at that […]

Fantasy hockey rankings: Six skaters who carry their team’s fantasy scoring

I shouldn’t flippantly say they’re not embracing it though. Dobson, for what it’s worth, is now earning the ice time deserved by his play this season — but it took a while for that to come around, including a visit to the press box at one point. But he looks secure now as the offensive […]

Fantasy hockey waiver watch: Foligno, Larsson, Reimer trending up

Marcus Foligno, LW/RW, Minnesota Wild (Rostered in 36.6% of ESPN.com leagues): Skating on a scoring line with Jordan Greenway and Joel Eriksson Ek, Foligno has eight goals in his most recent dozen games.
