The time has come to give fantasy hockey fans a joined look at all the forwards -- not just our usual Center-Left Wing-Right Wing break downs, but a look at the League's elite forwards. With the holiday's approaching and the midway point of the NHL season just a couple of weeks away, we thought this week would be a good time to provide you with updated rankings of all the top fantasy hockey forwards.
After entering preseason as the top overall fantasy player, where does Alex Ovechkin
now rank among the forwards after 32 games of NHL play? How about the emergence of Joffrey Lupul
, where does he fit in with the world's best offensive players? What about injured players like Sidney Crosby
and Claude Giroux
, where do they stand? You'll have to read on to find out...
While our weekly rankings help you gauge the value of each player at their respective positions, these rankings will help you assess the value of every forward. Is Zach Parise
going to outperform Anze Kopitar
going forward? Will Kris Versteeg
continue to be more valuable than Joe Thornton
? These rankings allow you to see if a wing is going to be more productive than a center, and vice versa. They are based on expectations of the season from this point on -- this means that just because Phil Kessel
leads the NHL in points right now, we don't necessarily think he'll be the most valuable fantasy player for the rest of the way.
