In the previous edition of Fantasy Friday, I looked at some of the biggest surprises in fantasy hockey and whether I believed they could carry their fast starts for the remainder of the season. This week, I'll look at the opposite, the biggest disappointments to this point.
However, instead of being 16 days into the season, we're now 23 days into it. Looking back at last season, players like Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche, Sean Monahan of the Calgary Flames and Tomas Tatar of the Detroit Red Wings had been struggling 23 days into their seasons. Some players are able to shake off their early-season slumps, like Monahan and Tatar, while others carry those struggles throughout the season and never quite fully recover, like MacKinnon. Even Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin only had five goals and one assist through his first nine games, but we all know how his season turned out.
This season seems to have more superstars coming out of the gate slowly than in the past, but the question is, can they recover?
Here's a look at some of the most notable disappointments of the young 2015-16 season and whether I believe they can turn things around for fantasy owners.
