Fantasy Mailbag: Selling Scheifele; Plus Keeper Conundrums & Deadline Dilemmas

Rick Roos


With some fantasy teams preparing for their playoff push, and others looking to rebuild, questions abound. The good news is the Mailbag is here to provide answers while also giving advice that should be useful to all poolies even if they don't own the specific players being discussed. As a reminder, if you want your fantasy hockey question answered in the next mailbag, check out the end of the column, where I explain the ways to get it to me and as well as the details you should provide. The earlier you send a question the more likely it is to be included, and the deeper dive I can provide with my reply.

Question #1 (from Forum Reader)

I'm in a 16 team dynasty league where we keep 21 players every year. It's roto style, with a few added categories: G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SHP, GWG, SOG, SH%, FW; GS, W, L, GAA, SV%, SHO. Lineup is 3C, 2LW, 2RW, 1W, 1UTIL, 4D, 2G, plus 6 bench spots, 3 IR, and 1 NA. No line-up spot can have a total number of games played more than the total number of games in the season.

My Team looks like this:
C – Connor McDavidNazem KadriKevin Hayes
LW – Brad MarchandTeuvo Teravainen
RW – Brayden SchennPatric Hornqvist
W – Jakub Voracek
D – John KlingbergSeth JonesMatt DumbaErik Karlsson
UT – Chandler Stephenson

G – Connor HellebuyckPhilipp Grubauer
BN/IR/NA – Anthony ManthaOliver Ekman-LarssonAlexander RadulovTyler SeguinRyan EllisJacob MarkstromRobin Lehner, Thatcher Demko
