Fantasy Hockey 2014-15: Sleeper Picks 2/7/15
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Today's Matchups
February 7, 2015
It’s Saturday, and we’ve got a big 11-game schedule coming up in the NHL today. That means it’s a good time to check out some of the sleepers and waiver wire pickups in the world of fantasy hockey. Before you get those lineups finalized, here are a few up-and-comers you might want to consider adding to your roster.
John Klingberg, D, Dallas Stars: Klingberg’s status as a sleeper won’t last much longer. He’s the trendy add right now heading into the weekend, thanks to his NHL Rookie of the Month selection in January.
Klingberg has provided four goals and three assists over his past four games, and is capable of scoring in bunches. He’s the defenseman to own right now. He’ll be in Buffalo this afternoon.

Mike Fisher, C, Nashville Predators: Fisher has missed some time with an injury this year, but when he’s been on the ice consistently he’s proven himself a valuable fantasy commodity.
Fisher has racked up four goals and three assists in his last five games, giving him 13 scores and 12 helpers overall. He’ll get the Rangers in the early game this afternoon, so if you’re going to add him, make it quick.
Colin Wilson, C/LW, Nashville Predators: Let’s stick with the Predators for a moment and check out another notable fantasy pickup in Nashville. Wilson has been pretty good over the past couple of games, nabbing two goals and an assist in his last two appearances.
Wilson has 17 goals and 19 assists this year, and he’s officially into career-season territory. He’s a must-have guy if you can still get him, as this run shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Trevor Daley, D, Dallas Stars: Now that he’s back on the ice, Daley has been pouring in the statistical mastery. He’s got two goals and three assists in his last four games, which gives him 13 of each on the season so far.
One drawback to Daley is his plus-minus rating, which currently sits at minus-10. If you can take the hit there, he should continue to provide semi-regular points for those in need of some production from their defensemen.
Brandon Pirri, C, Florida Panthers: Pirri and the Panthers are making a mad dash to the Wild Card territory, so it’ll be interesting to see if they can get there. He’s currently on a four-game scoring streak, with four goals and one assist in that frame.
Pirri is making the most of his minutes these days, giving him nine scores and two assists on the season. He’s an up-and-coming fantasy commodity you’ll definitely want to keep an eye on. Jump on the train now while you can.
