We’re halfway through the season and last time we picked out some of the most surprising and disappointing fantasy hockey players of the season so far.

Here’s Part 3 featuring valuable players in roto leagues and a very strong class of rookies who are making a significant impact.

Roto Beasts

What’s a Roto Beast? In short, they’re (usually) multi-position eligible players in rotisserie-style leagues who provide excess fantasy value compared to standard leagues. In other words, they’re not your usual top scorers, but the depth players and bangers who accumulate hits and blocked shots like Connor McDavid does points. Fantasy hockey has expanded and most leagues now include categories such as faceoff wins, hits and blocked shots, forcing managers to think more outside the box and dig deeper to find the players who will help them win.
