Who is my least start-able forward?

Recommended Posts

I have a H2H league where we have to set daily lineups. On a day like today (Monday) it's easy to set a lineup because there are so few players that actually play today. No players that are actually playing will be benched on a day like today. Tomorrow, on the other hand, is a day when most of my players play and, like fantasy football, decisions will have to be made on which players to start and which players (that are playing) to keep on the bench. I'm very new to fantasy hockey so I'm not exactly sure which players get the nod over others and which players stay on the bench if all the other spots are taken.

So yeah, which of my forwards are the LEAST startable, if I have to bench one or two? Should I consider dropping some of my forwards? (I just dropped Yakupov for Clarkson)

These are my forwards, in order of fantasy production so far under our league scoring.










If I go by just fantasy production so far (Benn hasn't played so he doesn't count in this) Backstrom and Nugent-Hopkins are in last place on my team. Are they the least startable? Or should I assume they will come around, and bench the rookie Brunner?

Also extra credit: my least scoring Dman is Fowler. Do I hold onto him or can I drop him for some hot commodity on the WW?

Yup bench Brunner. With Zetterberg u cover him. And if Detroit has another bad game his line is limited to 1 guy.

Yeah I definitely didn't like starting two Detroit guys on the same line.

If I have to bench TWO players, it's Brunner + ? Nugent-Hopkins? Backstrom?

It would feel like a sin benching any of those 5 top names over Nugent/Backstrom.

And now it's further complicated since I also just added Zack Kassian.
