The Program’s Fantasy All Stars

As promised earlier, here is Chris Wassel’s list of fantasy all stars. He has also included some top rookies, “vintage wines”, and a second all-star team in addition to the first all-star team.

You can find Chris’ work on both fantasy hockey and general interest hockey on his site, The Program.

Six months ago, fantasy hockey players started on a journey that would be filled with many highs and lows. There have been a lot of injuries and some very significant ones at that. We saw Sidney Crosby go down a couple times this year and miss quite a big chunk of time. Then there was the likely career ending concussion to Chris Pronger. It has been a tough year to gauge the top rookies, breakout players, and primetime warriors.

Those are the three categories we are using for this season ender known as the “Best Of The Best”. The reason we went with a bit of chronological youngest to oldest was simply because we could. For each category, we take our three best players and then add in a few honorable mentions. Yes that may stir up some more debate but remember this is from a fantasy hockey point of view.

Pick Six: Thursday March 1

Now that the trade deadline has finally come and gone, we can now focus on gearing our fantasy teams toward the fantasy playoffs. In one league, my fantasy playoffs start next week, so it’s important that I have my team in order so that I can compete for the money!

So what’s in store for Thursday? Nine games, that’s what. The matchup to watch will involve a surging St. Louis team rolling into Vancouver to play the Canucks, who are back from a grueling six-game road trip. Could it be a possible playoff preview?

Without further ado, the Pick Six for Thursday…

Sizing Up the Sleepers

In order to win a fantasy league, it’s not the early-round picks that matter (unless you choose Sidney Crosby and he misses half the season). The difference between winning and losing a fantasy league lies in making savvy mid to late round picks whose production level matches that of earlier-round picks.

With that strategy in mind, I’ve listed twelve players that I believe have the potential to exceed their current ranking on Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, or any other sites that host fantasy hockey. I’m not suggesting that you draft all of these players. But timing is everything, so these are names that you can consider if they appear at the right spot for you. I no longer enter drafts thinking that I must draft a particular player, since I could end up drafting the player earlier than I need to. Rather, I ensure that the player fills a particular need on my team (positional, statistical) before I add to my roster. Understanding player values is a critical component in winning any fantasy league – whether it be hockey, baseball, football, or fishing (yes, there is such a thing).
