It’s that time again. Friday/Sunday stream targets to finish out the week. Get those claims in today so you don’t miss out! Unless you’re in one of them fancy same-day adds leagues. Slim pickins this week, not gonna lie! Short read ahead.

Note: For the sake of uniformity and convenience on my part, only players rostered in less than 50% of Yahoo leagues will be included. Also, a “***” denotes a priority stream, in my humble opinion.


Calgary Flames (@ TOR, @ OTT)

***Rasmus Andersson (44%): Not much to say here. Ain’t gonna try to wow you with this and that. Andersson’s a straightforward fellow: he’s an assist-heavy, peripheral-less defenseman who QBs the top PP unit. He’s not quite sexy enough to be rostered in even half of Yahoo leagues, but he’s no slouch either. If you’re lagging in the A and/or PPP columns, try your handersson and Andersson. *Pun Dog Meme (you know, the one with the smiling husky)*

***Blake Coleman (42%): Another straightforward fellow. Mr. Coleman is basically Brady Tkachuk lite. He’s very strong for SOG+H but not quite the points threat that Brady can be. Unlike Brady, though, Coleman is eligible at both wing positions. His 36 SOG and 23 H on the year ain’t something you see from the average winger.

Honestly, that’s about all I see from Calgary. You could take your chances with Sean Monahan, but he’s kind of a loser for fantasy purposes now and is only C eligible. Oliver Kylington is enticing, having scored 7 PTS in his last 7 GP, but he’s just kinda got that “flash in the pan” vibe to me for some reason. I need to see much more than 16ish TOI from a defender to get excited. There is always a chance Milan Lucic fights someone or boards someone and racks up PIMs for you.

Edmonton Oilers (@ BUF, @ STL)

***Evan Bouchard (33%): Bouchard is climbing the fantasy hockey redraft relevancy ladder. The hits and blocks have been steady and the assists are starting to come at regular intervals. Entering today, he’s got a helper in three straight, as well as in six of his last nine. Solid enough SOG rate, too. The sad truth is he’ll probably never unseat Tyson Barrie from the top PP, but his second PP minutes still have some value. His top-pairing exposure to McJesus, while maybe not exactly hold-worthy, is most definitely stream-worthy.

Lol welp, that’s it for Edmonton. Everyone else worthwhile is rostered pretty much.

Washington Capitals (@ CBJ, v. PIT)

Garnet Hathaway (2%): Stream the dude for hits if you need ’em. Got 14 in his last three games alone (35 already on the year).

***Conor Sheary (1%): Weird to see a guy on a top power play unit available in 99% of leagues, yet here we are. Sheary has barely scored this year, but there aren’t a lot of games either Friday or Sunday (cuz duh, that’s the whole points of this column each week) so he could be the cheapest source of PPP you’ll find. In addition to the top power play minutes, he’s been seeing top-six minutes at even strength thanks to injuries to Oshie and Mantha. By default, he’s a priority stream forward this weekend due to lack of options.

I do some fantasy baseball as well as some fantasy hockey here at Razzball. Find me on Twitter: @jkj0787. DMs are always open for questions, comments, concerns, complaints, etc. Odds are good I’m drinking black coffee, dark beer, or some form of bourbon at any given time.

    “fancy same day adds leagues”? wait a minute, i’ve literally never heard of any other kind of fantasy hockey adding methods (can imagine other ones from comments in baseball’s columns though and some are goofy), so if that’s fancy, what would non fancy be?

      I’m just talking to the majority of folk who are probably in a regular Yahoo format. You put your claim in and it doesn’t process til the next day.

      • And Now the Jon Lovitz Dancers! says:
        (link)

        that sounds like what yahoo calls “daily-tomorrow” possibly with FAAB; yeah it sucks, as you can only grab guy(s) a day earlier, it’s not even possible to grab somebody when something changes short term for that day, completely wrong headed.

          or you might just be talking about regular daily waivers, but the kind where you still can’t add anybody THAT same day, but the claims themselves get made the previous day.

    Hi JKJ, 12 tm h2h, who to keep as 3rd goalie for rest of season?
    GA) -1 point
    Sv ) 0.2 points
    SO) 3 points
    W) 5 points

    Blackwood, Fleury, or either DET G

    THANKS!

    • JKJ says:

      Blackwood is the safest pick considerably there

      • Surfer Dude says:

        Once again – THANKS!!

    Hi Again JKJ, I just noticed Price is a free agent in my League, drop Knight for him?

    Thanks

    • JKJ says:

      Not sure when Price will actually be ready to play again but I imagine he’s more valuable than Knight once that starts back up.

    Man. Somewhat regretting picking up Grubauer. He still looks like garbage out there. Swayman, Blackwood are still out there. Could drop Garland for either of those two. Or just drop Grubauer himself. I also have Markstrom, Varlamov.
    Can also pick up another skater when they finally put MacKinnon on the IR. Was thinking Batherson or Reilly Smith. Any preference there? Like the hits/upside that Batherson provides but would put a drain on my +/-. Reilly is pretty solid but May just be on a heater

    • JKJ says:
      (link)

      Yeah Grubes is really shitting the bed…I’d hold him tho and let Garland go for Blackwood.

      I prefer Batherson to Smith by a good margin for the SOG+H and goal upside.

      • dubjay says:
        (link)

        Kind of surprised that youd go with Blackwood over Swayman. The Bruins seem to be a much better team and Swayman seems to be the 1A at the moment

        • JKJ says:
          (link)

          Well now Blackwood might be injured so it’s a moot point lol. I haven’t been paying the closest attention to goalies at the moment so I hadn’t seen Swayman getting the lion’s share lately tbh. I do a defender roundup series on Reddit so that’s where most of my attention has been!
