Waiver watch – Young scorers and lineup changes


Every week, we’ll mine the waiver wire for lesser-rostered assets to help your squad, whether you favor dynasty or the redraft format, and we’ll also toss in some tips for DFS players out there. Finally, we will look at some former go-to fantasy assets who may be overvalued – in the short- or long-term – for one reason or another.


Andre Burakovsky, LW/RW, Colorado Avalanche (Rostered in 24.9 percent of ESPN.com leagues): Following a quiet start to the month, Burakovsky appears back in his productive groove with three goals and an assist in his past two games. Competing on a scoring line with Nazem Kadri and top power play with Nathan MacKinnon, the 24-year-old former Capital is a legit threat to contribute game in and out. He could score 30 this year, obliterating his career-best mark of 17 goals from four seasons ago. I really love this young player as a still-under-the-radar fantasy asset in Colorado.

Jared McCann, LW/C, Pittsburgh Penguins (10.6 percent): While there’s no arguing Evgeni Malkin needs “to be fire”, by his own admission, in helping amend for the months-long loss of Sidney Crosby, the veteran star can’t center both top lines in Pittsburgh. Which is where McCann figures in, as temporary placeholder for one of the best in the game. So far, so good, as the 23-year-old has a pair of goals through the first three Crosby-less games, and seven points altogether in his past six. McCann’s projected outlook for production appears even more promising once a healthy Patric Hornqvist re-joins the Penguins’ top-six, supposedly soon.
