    DROP: A.McDonald / B.Little / M.Richards for R.Kesler?

    Got Ryan Kesler coming off the IR


    Who should I drop, given the stats in our league?
    Andy McDonald (STL); Brian Little (WPG); Mike Richards (LAK)

    Mike Richards has been invisible this season in fantasy, despite playing top line PP time as well as lots of PK time. Not even hitting as much as he normally does, or block shots.

    A.Mac has been pretty good for A and PPP. Not a ton of FW and very few HIT/BLK

    B.Little is similar to AMac but a lot more FW, but less pts by a few, although he does have a SHP

    As odd as it sounds, I'm thinking of dropping Andy McDonald... Little 2nd and Richards 3rd if I were ranking them

    Any thoughts or input?

    • Good question, good analysis of your line up.

      Given their various strengths make your choice with rosters needs. Kes should give you the PPP's/FW/hits & blocks

      I agree with you in order of preference but not knowing entire line up,,,, trust your judgement

        Well, those were the 3 "weakest" guys given stats and contributions so far.

        Other candidates would be:

        Martin Hanzal [C] (PHX)
        - Good for FW, HIT for sure, G,A,PPP are decent, and he's on the PK so chance for SHP

        Brandon Dubinsky [C,LW] (CLB)
        - Good for FW, HIT as with Hanzal, G,A,PP same story, also lots of PK so SHP chances too

        I'm in need of as many FW as I can get which is why AMac seems to be the best fit.

        I just dropped Max Pacioretty for Paul Gaustad - yeah, silly move on paper but Gaustad is a beast for FW (was best on waivers for our league other than Boyd Gordon), he also hits, gets some PP minutes in front of the net and is a big PK'er in NSH. Also gets some BLK's here and there.

        I have traded the likes of Brad Richards, Jason Spezza (when healthy), Jordan Staal, Antione Vermette to land players such as James Neal, Phil Kessel, Ilya Bryzgalov to shore up other stat/position deficiencies.

        I also own Crosby, so along with Neal and other decent scorers, I do okay for G,A,PPP (also own Kunitz, Letang from PIT).

        Thanks again, hope this extra info helps!
