    Default What are your picks for sleepers/darkhorses this season?

    As the title states, are there any sleepers or dark-horses you have your eye on? Especially ones that are incorrectly ranked on Yahoo.

    I think Elias Pettersson has a good chance of being a good late sleeper pick.

    Would you not say that sleepers/darkhorses in a one-year league would be different to sleepers/darkhorses in a keeper league? I might have higher expectations of a sleeper/darkhorse in a one-year league but in a keeper I might tolerate lower output (but still good) this year for long term gain?

    Indeed on that front the format of the league is going to play a key part in what you consider a sleeper/darkhorse no? My main league has hits, blocks and PIMs as categories and we play on ESPN so I'll be looking at JT Miller and Tom Wilson as darkhorses - seem to be starting season on top line and Miller seems to have a good chance at PP1. Equally I'm seeing Klefbom as great value if he/Edmonton can get it together...

    Pettersson would in no way be a sleeper in our pool. Had he not been drafted already, he'd be number 1. I'd say guys like Cirelli, Hinostroza, Lehkonen, Zykov and Andreas Johnnson. Thank you, Dobber Fantasy Guide! Tyler Bertuzzi in Detroit could have himself a pretty good season, too. These are all for a points only league so these would be guys I myself would look at. Seriously, check out the guides!
    12 team lifetime pool. 18 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    A. Johnsson, Cirelli, Sheary, Sikura, Compher, Bratt, Ho Sang, Kaprizov, Kahun, Jankowski, Jokiharju, Terry, Bertuzzi, Palat, Hinostroza, S. Bennett, Beauvillier, Batherson.

    M. Subban, Demko, Husso

    Borgstrom, Kravtsov, Greenway, Forsbacka-Karlsson, Liljegren, Samsanov
