Dobber Hockey’s Michael Clifford has advice for fantasy hockey players looking to pick up a Red Wings player during their fantasy drafts:
Detroit – Dylan Larkin
It seems every year I’m saying the same thing: Dylan Larkin is undervalued. We are saying the same thing again this year. He is going very late in drafts, after guys like Bo Horvat, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, and Claude Giroux. Now, whether he’ll end up better than all three is unlikely, but this is a different Detroit team. Jakub Vrana is elite offensively, Tyler Bertuzzi is healthy, and there are some kids who are only getting better. It is a concern that he is hitting less, but it isn’t as if that aspect has fallen off the map completely, and he still grabs PIMs at a good rate. If that shooting percentage rebounds in a big way, look out.
