We over at Unplucked Sports enjoyed a well deserved summer away from fantasy sports, but as the NHL preseason action gets underway, there are more and more fantasy hockey drafts taking place each day. We all have our own approach to picking players and predicating breakout seasons.
As with considering all the options, some players tend to fall under the radar each draft year for numerous reasons.
Like the players in this feature, players are at risk of being ranked lower than normal based on conditions such as extended injury leave, Russian defection, or the player was involved with a trade or promotion raising their hockey capital.
Banking on a bounce back season under any circumstance is a crap shoot. Those with injuries may be prone to additional misfortune once the season kicks into gear. Unfortunately, we roll the dice on that upside and potential.
Good luck at the draft. Hopefully, you'll land once these picks as a difference maker during the regular season.
