Multiple Jackets listed among NHL.com's offseason top 200 fantasy

by Staff Writer / Columbus Blue Jackets


Whether it's Phil Kessel getting traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Brandon Saad being shipped to the Columbus Blue Jackets or T.J. Oshie being dealt to the Washington Capitals, we've seen some impactful trades this offseason that could change the fantasy landscape for the 2015-16 season.

We've also seen our share of players changing addresses in free agency. Players including Mike Green and Cam Talbot have new homes and could see a spike in fantasy value.

With these changes, fantasy owners are likely salivating at the chance to start preparing for draft season in September. To help you prepare, it's time for my offseason top 200 fantasy hockey rankings.

These rankings have been built on what I have learned following several free agency signings and trades this summer. As training camps draw closer and more moves take place, these rankings will be updated, including position-by-position rankings and breakdowns.

These rankings should be viewed as my projections of the NHL's most valuable fantasy players based on expectations for this season. Factors taken into account include position eligibility, line combinations, category coverage and statistical performance from previous seasons.

NOTE: These rankings project value in standard fantasy hockey leagues, which include a 6x4 category scoring system: goals, assists, plus-minus, power-play points, shots on goal, penalty minutes, goalie wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts.
