Sports fans are always looking for new ways to get in on the action. The popularity of fantasy sports games, like Yahoo! Sports’ Hockey Fantasy, has created a market ripe for innovation. There is no shortage of blockchain-powered alternatives that could revolutionize this industry with ease

Fantasy hockey is a sport that involves players from different teams competing against each other. Different leagues are held in different countries. The most popular league is the NHL, which has many professional clubs. Read more in detail here: fantasy hockey news.

Despite the small sample size available, a new season gives us new duos — or new dynamics to old duos — that need a closer study.

Players seldom put up fantasy numbers in a vacuum, as every season fantasy player knows. Linemates and special teams units have a big role in how well a player performs.

Philadelphia Flyers’ Cam Atkinson and Joel Farabee, F: This is the top-producing line of the early season, along with center Derick Brassard. They’ve scored six goals as a unit, with Farabee and Atkinson combining for another sans Brassard. While Farabee was a known commodity heading into the season, Atkinson is still available in 25% of teams despite a waiver wire rush. But I’m not adding Atkinson or Brassard just yet. They’ve combined for 15 shots on goal, according to NaturalStatTrick.com, while allowing 20 against. That also entails a current shooting percentage of about 40%, which will be difficult to sustain.

St. Louis Blues’ Jordan Kyrou and Brayden Schenn, F: This alliance isn’t new, but now that Jaden Schwartz is gone, it has a new dynamic. Last season, Schenn was paired with Kyrou and Schwartz, but Kyrou looked to be the third wheel. This season, the tandem has rotated linemates, with Pavel Buchnevich in the position before to his suspension and youngster Jake Neighbours filling in following. But it’s a different winger who has peaked my curiosity here: Vladimir Tarasenko has only played a total of 3:13 minutes with the combination, but they’ve already scored two goals in that time. On Tuesday, I bemoaned Tarasenko’s early-season role in the fantasy rankings, but his performance in limited play has to have the Blues considering giving him a greater role than the third line.

1617223601_496_1-31-poll-plus-the-biggest-concern-for-every-team

San Jose Sharks’ Logan Couture and Timo Meier, F: Last season, this combination didn’t play much together. In recent seasons, Meier has been teamed with Tomas Hertl. Couture and Meier played less than 100 minutes of five-on-five together last season. They’ve already played 33 minutes together this season, resulting in 22 shots and three goals, all of which have come with rookie winger Jonathan Dahlen on the ice. Dahlen is the player I’m adding to lineups since Couture and Meier are already taken in most leagues. Last season, the 23-year-offensive old’s flourished in Sweden’s second-tier league, and this is a terrific place in the lineup for him.

The Fantasy Forecaster will be available from October 25 through October 31.

With seven teams playing four games next week, including the Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers’ deep offenses, you should be spoilt for choice. The only team playing just once is the New York Islanders.

Notes from the group

1617223576_765_1-31-poll-plus-the-biggest-concern-for-every-team

Carolina Hurricanes: All six members of the Hurricanes’ top lines are fantasy-worthy, which means Jesperi Kotkaniemi is likely your final shot to get in off the free-agent list. Kotkaniemi isn’t on the top power-play unit since he’s only in 10% of ESPN leagues, but that’s OK because he’s skating at even strength alongside Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen. The Canes have four games this season, all of them are at home. Given the favorable schedule, Tony DeAngelo should be added and started in the 57 percent of leagues where he is still available.

You may even consider stashing backup goalkeeper Antti Raanta for a spot start in daily transaction leagues. The second game of the back-to-back series pits the Hurricanes against the winless Chicago Blackhawks.

Fantasy-hockey-season-preview-Guide-to-centers

Tampa Bay Lightning: While it’s exciting to watch the Buffalo Sabres get out to such a strong start, we shouldn’t lower our expectations just yet. With Jeff Carter and Tristan Jarry in the COVID-19 protocol and no immediate reinforcements from Sidney Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins seem to be doomed moving into next week. The Arizona Coyotes are the Arizona Coyotes. Next week, who will face all three of these teams? The reigning Stanley Cup champions are one of them. If you were on the fence about adding Corey Perry after Nikita Kucherov was placed on long-term injured reserve, this schedule should persuade you to do so. I’d even go so far as to recommend Alex Killorn as a possible starter next week.

1617223596_209_1-31-poll-plus-the-biggest-concern-for-every-team

Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings has a four-game week ahead of him, which includes games against the Montreal Canadiens and the Buffalo Sabres. With an acquisition of Viktor Arvidsson, who is available in 83 percent of ESPN leagues, and/or Dustin Brown, who is available in 70 percent, you may still acquire direct access to him through free agents. In the early going, both have averaging more than 2.0 fantasy points per game.

Fantasy-hockey-impact-from-2021-NHL-free-agency

Canadiens de Montréal: If the Habs are going to break out of their funk, this isn’t a bad week to do it. The squad will play the Seattle Kraken, San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings, and Anaheim Ducks in a four-game western road trip. I’m not ready to start Jake Allen, but seeing Nick Suzuki and Mike Hoffman on a line together, as well as the top power-play unit, may be enough to convince me to take a chance on the club finding its stride.

Notes from the players

1617223587_984_1-31-poll-plus-the-biggest-concern-for-every-team

Edmonton Oilers’ Evan Bouchard, D: Bouchard is off to a solid fantasy start with his increased minutes, blocking shots, taking shots, and scoring points. Bouchard is averaging 19:17 minutes per game this season, up from 14:50 minutes last season. He averages 2.6 fantasy points per game, but an even better 8.10 fantasy points per 60 minutes, only a hair behind teammate Leon Draisaitl.

F, Colorado Avalanche, J.T. Compher: Andre Burakovsky was my sleeper pick for this season for one and only one reason: Access to the Avs to power-play unit is presumed. Despite Burakovsky’s presence on the ice for most of last season, it’s Compher who is battling for the lead with Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, Gabriel Landeskog, and Cale Makar. He’s also one of the best penalty killers on the club. The end result is a lot of ice time, with a lot of it coming from superstar teammates. In any league, Compher seems to be a must-have.

1617223601_496_1-31-poll-plus-the-biggest-concern-for-every-team

Adin San Jose Sharks’ G Hill: Not just Hill, but also backup James Reimer, have had outstanding performances in all three of the team’s games so far. The Sharks’ defensive performance may be credited for some of their success. They have the greatest shooting defense in the league, allowing just 25.0 shots per game against them. Hill and Reimer, on the other hand, are placed 54th and 55th out of 57 goaltenders in terms of the amount of high-danger shots they’ve faced per minute (per NaturalStatTrick). Hill will prosper if the Sharks continue to preserve their net in this manner.

Hits that happen quickly

Every night throughout the season, Barry Melrose and Linda Cohn will provide a postgame analysis and highlight program. ESPN+ is the place to be.

  • Marc-Andre Fleury can move to the free-agent pile if I need some roster space for next week, particularly for goalie numbers. Given his early results, starting him against the offenses of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Carolina Hurricanes, or St. Louis Blues — let alone all three — would be a horrible move. If Fleury improves his game at some time, which is far from certain, he’ll still be available on the waiver wire for you to pick up.

  • We can probably bypass them all together next week because of Jack Hughes’ absence from the New Jersey Devils’ roster. Make sure Hughes is tucked away in case he has to be retrieved. He’s among the top 10 skaters in fantasy points per 60 minutes in his 26 minutes of total ice time, narrowly edging out Alex Ovechkin.

  • In the ESPN.com default scoring system, averaging 2.0 fantasy points each game is significant, but not outstanding. However, earning close to 7.00 fantasy points per 60 minutes is definitely elite-level productivity; all it takes is a player’s ice time to increase. In the early going, Adam Henrique and Conor Garland stand out for this combination of metrics. Both players have played five games and have a 2.0 FPPG average. Henrique, on the other hand, has a 7.52 FPP60 average while playing just 15:45 per game. Garland has less potential for improvement in terms of minutes, but he has a 6.97 FPP60 in 17:21 per game.

  • Yanni Gourde made his Seattle Kraken debut, skating on the top line and pushing Jared McCann, as predicted. However, the team’s offensive production hasn’t been very exciting for fantasy reasons, so I wouldn’t rush out to check on Gourde’s availability.

The “fantasy hockey draft” is an event that takes place in the fall and it helps people to decide who they want to play with. The draft consists of rounds, and each round has a different number of players. The player drafts are done in order.
