Yahoo Rankings - Who is undervalued :)
Every year I snag up players way UNDERVALUED by yahoo. Their rankings are a bit crazy at times (although I notice they update them more frequently now)...
Sometimes you can sneak a lowly player hanging in a bizarre rank. My league uses a lot of stats (see sig)... but this works regardless.
Travis Zajac - #600 ?????
HAVLAT - #339 ...?
Hodgson - #359
Hemsky - #360 ....
these are decent late draft steals... ESPECIALLY zajac.
Anyone else notice some key names way tooooo low?
Keep4+rookie under 150gp (14 teams): G,A,+/-,PIM,SHP,PPP,GWG,SOG,FW, W/GAA/SV/SV%/SHO [Keepers: E Staal, Parise, Backes, Malkin, (R) Desharnais]
- Some people are like slinkies, they don't seem to have a purpose but bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs... -
Been a long time since I reviewed this list, but here is a cut & paste from a few threads I wrote up in October.
****I wrote the below on August 28th... so take it FWIW now****
Of significant note: Yahoo groups a bunch of chump goalies between #314-#335 (with Devin Setoguchi mixed in there, LOL).
After that group, there are some nice forward sleepers to be had.
#339 Havlat, Martin
#359 Hodgson, Cody
#385 van Riemsdyk, James
#406 McDonald, Andy
And, there are lots of PIM goons.
Also, some of the kings of Hits/BkS leagues can be found way later:
#457 Schenn, Luke
#465 Greene, Matt
#482 Stuart, Mark
#494 Gorges, Josh
#519 Smid, Ladislav
