Fantasy top 100 forward rankings for 2016-17

NHL.com lists most valuable standard-league assets during regular season

by Pete Jensen @NHLJensen / NHL.com Senior Fantasy Editor

All season long, NHL.com will rank the top 100 forwards for standard Yahoo leagues (goals, assists, plus/minus, penalty minutes, power-play points, shots on goal). Players with long-term injuries have been removed from this list. Positions indicate eligibility in Yahoo leagues.

These rankings are based on expectations for the rest of the season. Value is quantified by line combinations, power-play usage, past performance and overall upside in standard leagues. Changes in value each week are based on recent performance and/or lineup trends.

Fantasy waiver wire: Plenty of value from Hurricanes

Jordan Staal, Teuvo Teravainen, Sebastian Aho among Carolina players who can make difference

by Ben Zweiman @BZweimanNHL / NHL.com Staff Writer

In order to maximize your return on the waiver wire, you're going to have to get creative. Instead of looking at only statistics to determine who to pick up, try looking deeper into a player's effectiveness or how the schedule will effect a certain team. With the condensed schedule which features long breaks for each team, the Carolina Hurricanes present some added value off the wire.

The Hurricanes already have taken their break in the schedule and after facing the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday, will have the most games remaining (27) of any team. Carolina plays 15 of those 27 games at home, where it is averaging 2.96 goals per game; the Hurricanes average 2.24 goals per game on the road. The Hurricanes also have plenty of favorable matchups, with 18 of their final 27 opponents ranking in the bottom half in the NHL in goals allowed per game.

Fantasy: Most valuable players in past 30 days

Nino Niederreiter, Evander Kane among top standard-league assets during that span

by Pete Jensen @NHLJensen / NHL.com Senior Fantasy Editor

You don't always win fantasy leagues with the best players in terms of a season-long body of work. There's no question it helps you to an extent, but players who get hot at the right time are often most responsible for fantasy championships in head-to-head leagues.

During the past 30 days, the most productive player at each position in Yahoo's performance-based rankings is hardly surprising: Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars has been the top forward (1st overall), Brent Burns of the San Jose Sharks has been the top defenseman (2nd overall), and Matt Murray of the Pittsburgh Penguins has been the top goalie (8th overall).
