Blurb: Dylan Larkin, fantasy hockey ‘steal’

Very briefly:’s Jonathan Baron penned a list of 2018-2019 “fantasy hockey steals” who may continue to provide value for the 2019-2020 season, and he lists Dylan Larkin as an ascendant player:

Dylan Larkin, C, DET
2018-19 ADP: 148.7; final rank: 53 rank for 2019-20: 89

After a disappointing second season in 2016-17 (32 points in 80 games), Larkin rejoined the fantasy landscape in 2017-18 (63 points) and then was nearly a point-per-game player last season (73 in 76 games). Larkin is expected to play with wings Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bertuzzi on the Detroit Red Wings’ first line, a trio that combined for 39 points over the final eight games last season. With line stability over a full season, that line has enormous upside, giving Larkin a strong chance of exceeding 80 points.
