Pick Six: Tuesday March 27

Two weeks is all that is left in the fantasy season. So if you’re reading this, you’re still competing in your fantasy league to some degree. Perhaps you are competing in your league finals, or perhaps you are in the head-to-head matchup in which the loser finishes dead last. No, I’m not in that position, but as of yesterday I know for sure that I won’t win every league that I’m competing in. But I do have first place locked up in one roto league and am still competing for first in two other head-to-head leagues.

In the spirit of trying to pull out every last stop, this Pick Six strictly lists notable players that I’ve added or dropped over the past few days. At this stage I’m paying some attention to matchups and recent performance, but a solid argument can be made for just about any player if the add is only for only a game or two.

Pick Six: Saturday December 17

Hopefully you didn’t spend a high fantasy draft pick on Chris Pronger this season.

Over the last 14 months, Pronger has missed time with injuries to his knee, foot, hand, and eye, in addition to the concussion that will end his season and may end his career.

When will this concussion problem end? So far we have Pronger, Claude Giroux, Sidney Crosby, Kris Letang, Milan Michalek, Jeff Skinner, Joni Pitkanen, Mike Richards, and Marc Staal – among others – sidelined with concussions.  Who will it be on Saturday? I don’t mean to joke about the situation, but this is getting laughable.

More extreme measures perhaps need to be taken, such as a European-sized rink or the return of the two-line pass. You’re probably groaning, but I’d take a more boring game over one without many of its brightest stars. Players have gotten bigger and faster over the years, meaning that they are capable of doing more damage – something that the experts who have played the game need to recognize.

Anyway, this is a fantasy column, so my job is to focus on the fantasy implications here. So we’ll start the Pick Six for Saturday with two defensemen who you’ll be seeing a lot of in Pronger’s absence.
