For any anti-fantasy owners who picked John Tavares, I have some bad news: the kid has been lighting things up lately. He’s currently on an 8-game point streak, with 15 points in that span. He now has 42 points in 42 games, which means some mice should be along shortly to dissect his brain for the great question of life, the universe, and everything.
The lowest scoring player in his group is his teammate, Michael Grabner, who has just 20 points in the same span. That 22-point game is the third biggest in the anti-fantasy pool, tied with the gap between Eric Staal and Claude Giroux.
The second biggest gap is between Nino Niederreiter, who has just 1 point this season, and Cody Hodgson, whose 6 points in his last 7 games have carried him to the lead in his category with 26 points. If you’re a Canucks fan and you picked Hodgson, you deserve the damage he’s doing to you in the standings.
The biggest gap is unsurprisingly in the Injury Prone Players category: Matthew Lombardi has 7 points in 26 games, while Marian Gaborik has managed to avoid injuries thus far and has 35 points in 43 games. His health has been a big reason why the Rangers are tied for first in the NHL: the speedy Slovakian is leading the team in goals and points. He’s also leading several anti-fantasy teams into the basement.
Once more, with feeling: holidayblues is in first place. Natevk is the closest challenger, just 8 points back of the long-time leader, who hasn’t budged from top spot since Week 4.
Emerys is back for a second consecutive week in last place, with 16 more points than By-Tor. Those three big gaps I mentioned above? Emerys has Henrik, Gaborik, and Tavares. That hurts.
The Anti-Fantasy All-Star Team has 235 points.
