Not every player is created equally. That also goes for expectations placed upon them. Dan Pennucci examines those he thinks are lining up to disappoint Fantasy owners.
|The top defenseman on the free agent market, Matt Niskanen capped of Washington’s free agent spending spree when he signed a seven-year, $40.25 million contract with the Caps in July. Niskanen performed admirably for the Penguins last season when the injury bug ravaged their blue line, and the 27-year-old Minnesotan was able to to take advantage of increased playing time with the likes of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to generate a banner year, tallying 10 goals and 46 points and averaging over 21 minutes of ice-time per game. There is some speculation that the stars aligned for Niskanen last season, and as such his point totals might regress due to the competition he faces for ice-time in such a deep defense. Still, the drop off in talent between Crosby/Malkin and Ovechkin/Backstrom isn’t significant, and Niskanen should get plenty of opportunities to be a good fantasy defenseman. (Updated 8/13/14) |
