Fantasy Hockey 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 11/5
Fantasy Hockey Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Upcoming Matchups
November 5, 2015
We’re heading into a pretty busy NHL evening, which makes morning a great time to take a look at the fantasy hockey waiver wire. We’ve got a fresh crop of trending names for daily and seasonal leagues for you to peruse, so let’s check out the numbers and see who’s right for your team.
Dale Weise, RW, Montreal Canadiens: Weise has been a hot pickup over the past day, thanks to his stellar play in the last three games. In that span, he’s got four goals, an assist and a plus-6 rating.
Weise has 10 points in 14 games overall for the Canadiens and is tied for the team lead in goals. He won’t keep it up all season, but you might as well jump on the bandwagon starting tonight against the Islanders.

Leon Draisaitl, C, Edmonton Oilers: Draisaitl doesn’t play until tomorrow night, but we’ve got to give him his due now. In three games since being called up from the minors, he’s got three goals, four assists and a plus-4 rating.
No one has been fooled into thinking that Draisaitl will keep up this pace for the whole season, but he’s definitely providing value where there was thought to be none. He’ll be out on the ice next at home against Pittsburgh tomorrow.
Loui Eriksson, LW/RW, Boston Bruins: Eriksson is owned in around 40 percent of fantasy hockey leagues out there and has been trending heavily over the past day. He scored two goals with a plus-1 rating in his last appearance.
Eriksson has been posting some nice numbers for his fantasy level, with four goals and seven assists thus far. He’s getting close to must-own territory in 10- and 12-team leagues heading into a game against the Caps tonight.
Mike Condon, G, Montreal Canadiens: Condon took a tough-luck overtime loss to the Senators in his last outing, allowing two tricky goals. He bagged 25 saves in that one.
In his last three appearances, Condon has two wins and a pair of games with at least 25 saves. He’s allowed five goals in that span, more than serviceable numbers while he fills in for Carey Price. The Canadiens get the Isles tonight.
Dylan Larkin, C, Detroit Red Wings: Larkin doesn’t play until tomorrow either, but we’ll give him a look now. He’s got game-winning goals in each of his last two outings, with a plus-2 rating in that time.
Larkin is off to a nice start in his rookie campaign, tallying four goals and five assists thus far. He’ll be in Toronto tomorrow, then home against the Stars on Sunday to start off a three-game home stand.
