Larkin, Mantha, Zadina and Green make The Hockey News’s Larkin’s top 200 fantasy players list

The Hockey News’s Matt Larkin wrote an exhaustive list handicapping the top 200 fantasy hockey players for the 2018-19 season. Here are his Red Wings mentions:

107. Dylan Larkin, C, Red Wings: He’s unquestionably Detroit’s No. 1 pivot now. Lack of goals and a weak supporting cast limit his upside for now. More interesting if Filip Zadina makes the team and ends up on his line.

154. Anthony Mantha, RW, Red Wings: Strong bet to lead the Wings in goals again, but watch out for Zadina. If you’re not on the first line in Detroit, you’re in a bad fantasy situation, especially if Henrik Zetterberg doesn’t play this year.

164. Filip Zadina, RW, Red Wings: He reminds me of Marian Hossa. You’ll want to reach on him if he makes the team, but keep in mind he’s eligible to return to major junior and that his QMJHL squad hosts the Memorial Cup this year, hint hint.

178. Mike Green, D, Red Wings: Someone has to quarterback the Wings’ power play, and Green will keep holding down that job, but further decline isn’t out of the question for a 32-year-old coming off neck surgery.
