FANTASY TEAM POWER RANKINGS FOR 2019-20

Fantasy owners should use these rankings as a basis for player/team evaluation in waiver-wire adds, drops and DFS streaming options. Factors taken into account include positional depth, power-play, lineup and injury trends, team security and overall upside for the rest of the 2019-20 season in standard leagues.

1. Tampa Bay Lightning (SAME)
Players in top 200: 8
NOTE: Center Anthony Cirelli and defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk have joined the top 200 rankings this week. Elite center Brayden Point returned from injury.

2. Toronto Maple Leafs (SAME)
Players in top 200: 8

3. Boston Bruins (SAME)
Players in top 200: 8

4. Vegas Golden Knights (SAME)
Players in top 200: 8

5. Nashville Predators (+1)
Players in top 200: 9

6. Colorado Avalanche (+5)
Players in top 200: 7

7. Dallas Stars (-2)
Players in top 200: 8

8. Washington Capitals (-1)
Players in top 200: 9
NOTE: Backup goalie Ilya Samsonov joined the top 200 rankings this week after winning his NHL debut.

9. Florida Panthers (+1)
Players in top 200: 8

10. St. Louis Blues (+2)
Players in top 200: 8
NOTE: The Blues have multiple streaming options including forwards David Perron, Sammy Blais and defenseman Justin Faulk. 

11. Carolina Hurricanes (+8)
Players in top 200: 5
NOTE: Despite only having five players in the top 200, the Hurricanes have valuable waiver-wire targets in defensemen Jaccob Slavin, Jake Gardiner and forwards Erik Haula and Ryan Dzingel. Backup James Reimer is also worth keeping an eye on after a 47-save win against the Panthers on Tuesday.

12. Philadelphia Flyers (+1)
Players in top 200: 8
NOTE: Right wing Travis Konecny has joined the top 200 rankings this week.

13. Calgary Flames (+2)
Players in top 200: 6

14. Edmonton Oilers (+12)
Players in top 200: 7
NOTE: Wings James Neal and Zack Kassian have joined the top 200 rankings and are entering must-own territory. Defensemen Oscar Klefbom and Darnell Nurse are providing value, and goalie Mikko Koskinen is emerging as a No. 3 fantasy option with upside.

15. Winnipeg Jets (-1)
Players in top 200: 7

16. Buffalo Sabres (+13)
Players in top 200: 8
NOTE: Goalie Carter Hutton entered NHL.com’s top 25 goalie rankings. Forwards Marcus Johansson and Victor Olofsson joined the top 200 overall. Defenseman Colin Miller is worth streaming for even-strength exposure to valuable forwards Jack Eichel, Sam Reinhart and Jeff Skinner.

17. New York Rangers (+1)
Players in top 200: 7

18. San Jose Sharks (-9)
Players in top 200: 7
NOTE: It’s too early to overreact and drop a valuable skater like Tomas Hertl. Veteran forward Patrick Marleau made an immediate impact for the Sharks (two goals in season debut) and could be the veteran presence their offense needs to turn things around.

19. Detroit Red Wings (+6)
Players in top 200: 4
NOTE: Whether or not the Red Wings can maintain their success remains to be seen, but fantasy owners should take advantage of their hot start by streaming top-line wing Tyler Bertuzzi and defensemen Filip Hronek or Danny DeKeyser.

20. Chicago Blackhawks (-3)
Players in top 200: 8

21. Pittsburgh Penguins (-13)
Players in top 200: 5
NOTE: Elite center Evgeni Malkin (lower body) dropped out of the forward and overall rankings this week. Forwards Alex Galchenyuk and Patric Hornqvist are also dealing with injuries, leaving Pittsburgh with limited options in fantasy.

22. New Jersey Devils (-6)
Players in top 200: 6

23. Montreal Canadiens (-3)
Players in top 200: 5

24. Vancouver Canucks (-2)
Players in top 200: 7

25. Arizona Coyotes (-4)
Players in top 200: 5

26. Anaheim Ducks (-2)

28. Columbus Blue Jackets (SAME)
Players in top 200: 5

29. Los Angeles Kings (+1)
Players in top 200: 3

30. Minnesota Wild (-2)
Players in top 200: 3

31. Ottawa Senators (-1)
Players in top 200: 2
NOTE: Although the Senators only have two players in the top 200, it’s worth noting defenseman Thomas Chabot and left wing Brady Tkachuk are among the top 100 overall.
