    Default Drop Duchene for Danault?

    After reading the Looking Ahead column (https://dobberhockey.com/hockey-home...rth-targeting/), I'm wondering if I should drop Duchene for Danault? Is there enough of a difference that I should make the swap? The same article talks about Nashville's top line being broken up, which seems like an opportunity for Duchene if he's playing with Forsberg now.

    I happily dropped Duchene in my one-year league. Even if he picks it up it's tough to justify him in a shallow league, although your league is deeper than mine.

    Not sure if Danault is your best option. Who else is available?

    Top available players, in order, based on average fantasy points per game on the year:

    - Blake Coleman LW,RW
    - Phillip Danault C
    - Anthony Cirelli C
    - Christian Dvorak C
    - Rasmus Ristolainen D
    - Eric Staal C
    - Jared McCann C,LW

    It doesn't exactly instill a ton of confidence in the free agent pool!

    With those options available Id be tempted to hold onto Duchene.

    I have Danault, but I would move him for Duchene. Danault is a great player but he is a defensively deployed forward. He may be so good that he produces anyways; we will see long term. We know Duchene has pretty great upside, despite what he's shown. It could end up being close but Duchene has that next level I think.

    12 team H2H Most Cats Wins; Keep 6/winner keeps 7; G A PPP +/- SHP SOG HIT BLK PIM // W SV GAA SV% SHO
    3 C, 3 LW, 3 RW, 6D, 2G, 5 bench

    C - McDavid, Crosby, Tavares
    LW - Hall, Skinner, Rust, Kreider, van Riemsdyk
    RW - Tarasenko, Meier, Brown, Silfverberg, Yamamoto
    D - Barrie, Hamilton, Klefbom, Ristolainen, Pulock, Spurgeon
    G - Andersen, Lehner, Crawford, Campbell

    Coleman and Cirelli are very tempting.

    I think Coleman, Danault, & Cirelli are better options.

    I dealt Duchene in a dynasty cap league that's got G, A, Pts, SOG, PIM, and (Hits+Blocks) because I couldn't justify his salary versus his lack of production. In a one year, he'd be gone from my roster by now.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Bobrovsky
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Ekblad, Yandle, Carlson, DeAngelo, Letang, Makar
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller
    F4: Bertuzzi, Tavares, Seguin

    Bench:
    G:
    D: Barrie, M Reilly, Heiskanen, Klingberg, Morissey, Weegar
    F: Bailey, Benn, Guentzel, Johnsson, Labanc, Mikheyev, Necas
    Reserve: Datsyuk
