Fantasy Preview Week Long Streaming Options

Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Ottawa Senators 45%

Jean-Gabriel Pageau is having a hell of a year. The Ottawa Senator has already matched his point total from last season (12), and it looks like he can’t be stopped. He probably won’t produce like this for the long-term, especially considering he’s shooting at a 20% rate. If he gets traded, that’s also going to be a gamble for any owners of his. For now though? He’s a good option for the short-term, take a look if he’s available in your league.

Jaden Schwartz, St.Louis Blues 36%

Jaden Schwartz has quietly been producing for the St. Louis Blues. The reigning Stanley Cup Champion seems to have gotten over a down year last season. His 14 points in 18 games shows he could be a nice under-the-radar pickup, at least for the short-term.

Joel Armia, Montreal Canadiens 33%

Joel Armia has been enjoying a promotion to the Montreal Canadiens’ top six. With 6 points in his last 9 games, plus 31 hits, Armia could be a steal, especially if you’re in a category league and need hits. Armia isn’t a go to option, but as the Habs get better, it isn’t insane to say Armia could put up more points.

Tony DeAngelo, NY Rangers 35%

Tony DeAngelo isn’t known for blocks or hits, but you know what he is known for? Offense. If you want offense from the blue-line, Tony DeAngelo is your sleeper option. The 2nd pairing defenseman on the Rangers has had 5 points in the last 4 games, and it doesn’t look like he’ll slow down very quickly. DeAngelo gets a fair bit of PP time as well, and you can count on him to get PIM. The defenseman isn’t the best for the stats one would normally attribute to a defenseman. If you need offense from your defense though, check for him, or at the very least put him on watch.

Spencer’s Fantasy Hockey Preview Pick of the Week

Cody Ceci. I’m not even kidding. I can’t believe I’m even thinking this, forget typing it. Ceci isn’t a very good defenseman, but he has the potential to be a decent fantasy option. He’s a reliable producer for hits and blocks, but he hasn’t been great offensively. It looks as if that could change though, as the Leafs proved against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday that their offense is heating up. Ceci is partners with noted offensive stalwart Morgan Rielly, and Ceci has had a decent-good offensive game for years now. What I’m trying to say is, if you’re in a deeper league and Cody Ceci is still available, unironically pick him up, because he could heat up soon enough.

I hope you’ve found this weeks fantasy preview helpful and insightful. Always keep your eye on the waiver wire for possibles steals. You might be able to grab a player, or two, ahead of next weeks fantasy preview article!
