Before making any picks in your 2019 Fantasy hockey drafts, you need to see the rankings from SportsLine's Fantasy hockey model. This model, developed by pro DFS player and SportsLine predictive data engineer Mike McClure, simulates the entire NHL season 10,000 times to produce the most exact and accurate Fantasy rankings imaginable.
McClure has used this model to help him win almost $2 million in daily Fantasy sports, and it also powers his season-long NHL rankings. And just last year, his model identified Predators defenseman P.K. Subban as one of its busts to avoid in the 2018-19 season. The results? Subban recorded a career-low 31 points, and anybody who faded him avoided a huge headache in their Fantasy hockey league.
One thing we can tell you from McClure's 2019 Fantasy hockey rankings: the model is extremely high on Rangers center Mika Zibanejad. Zibanejad is going off at No. 73 overall, according to the latest ADP, but McClure's model has him at No. 48 overall. Another surprise: Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman is a huge bust. He has an ADP of 29, but the model barely has him in the top 40.
The model has also made the call on where Artemi Panarin ranks after signing with the Rangers this offseason, and it features a stunner in the top 5 that you need to see.
