Operator: “911 … what is your emergency?”
Caller: “I need some assistance – I am at risk of not winning my fantasy hockey playoffs!”
If you have made it this far, you probably do not need much of my advice for your championship matches. You are either a very talented fantasy coach, drafted extremely well with your risks returning rewards, or maybe somewhat lucky. How you reacted after injuries and hot/cold streaks on your roster defined you as a fantasy hockey veteran.
This will be my last Exchange Rate article for this season. Please check in here at fantasyhockey911.com for upcoming articles during the fantasy hockey off-season such as keepers, the entry draft, and reviews on fantasy hockey sites, hockey books and podcasts to get you set for next year.
Fill out your lineups with choices from the list of options below, all less than 50% owned in Yahoo leagues as of Wednesday, March 13. Also, you can always look back at the last few weeks’ exchange rate for over-looked upward trending players.
Taking chances and playing the waiver choices and favorable schedules wins leagues.
|Jaden Schwartz||STL||29||Injuries gives him top line deployment|
|Jakub Vrana||WAS||21||On a scoring binge on a team looking for a deep run|
|Brendan Perlinni||CHI||2||Scoring like a sniper, hat trick flashes potential|
|Jared McCann||PIT||28||Makes the list again, playing well with Sid & Geno|
|Andrei Svechnikov||CAR||28||Streaky player, can go on a goal flurry for Canes|
|Mike Matheson||FLA||13||Blue line free agent pool getting thin, another option|
|MacKenzie Weeger||FLA||4||Back from injury, adds to all categories|
|Quinn Hughes||VAN||2||Will the rookie get past injury to see the ice?|
|Ivan Provorov||PHI||47||Often dropped, adds games to your week|
|Sam Montembeault||FLA||5||If he stays hot Luongo will sit, Reimer still not 100%|
