What Fantasy Hockey Owners should have Learned from Fantasy Football.

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

When I was prepping for my fantasy football draft in September I realized that when I drafted at the end of the first round Adrian Peterson was going to be on the board. Could I really pass on AP? I mean, this guy has been the most sought after man in fantasy football for the last couple of years and last year I would have given up my first born child to see him on my roster. That being said, he was coming off a terrible injury and I (like everyone else) feared he wouldn’t be the same.  So, like a fool I let him pass and watched AP have one of the best rushing seasons of all time while leading many fantasy owners straight to a fantasy championship.


In January I found my self again facing a similar issue. Being in the top spot of my NHL fantasy draft I knew I would have a shot to draft Sidney Crosby. Why shouldn’t I, he is considered by most to be the outright best player in the NHL isn’t he? But like Adrian Peterson, Crosby is coming off a horrific injury that has plagued him the last two seasons and there are a lot of other great players out there like Malkin, Sedin, Stamkos or even Ovechkin.

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire: Red Wings & Lightning Continue to Melt the Ice

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Purcell is heating up the ice.

Wing players are the most up and down position in fantasy hockey. Sliding up and down lines and going on hot and cold streaks can make any number of wings valuable throughout the season. Another reason value can change is because of trades. With the trade deadline looming, there should be a lot of roles changing in the NHL as teams decide whether they are in it for the long haul or out of it. Playoff teams will begin to stack their lines with proven talent while teams out of contention allow their young players to play. This week we highlight a couple Red Wings and a couple Sharks on the fantasy hockey waiver wire that are surging into the playoffs with their respective teams.
