Is Karel Veljmelka a legitimate option for waiver wire? – [Update News]

Another Fantasy Trends column, another Friday. As usual, we’ll cover the four-game streamers to ensure you get the most bang for your buck. Also, we’ll take a look at those playing on the ‘lighter nights’ of the week. For a fresh twist, we have the answers to your questions.

Let’s dive in.

Four Game Streamers


Karel Vejmelka, G, ARI | 6% Yahoo

You probably didn’t know the name Vejmelka too well before he stopped 45 shots against the Maple Leafs and saved 4.89 goals above expected. His season certainly hasn’t been perfect, but he hasn’t had much help either — facing one of the toughest workloads against in the league when accounting for ice time of 3.2 expected goals against per 60. Don’t expect to pile up the wins, he is, after all, on the Coyotes. His team keeps him busy so expect saves.

Doesn’t hurt to be going up against two teams who aren’t exactly elite offensively next week in Montreal and New Jersey, either. Just… maybe wait until after their matchup against the Avalanche.

Jesse Compher’s brother is currently playing on Nazem Kadri’s right and a loaded top power play unit. This add is a great opportunity to benefit while Gabriel Landeskog’s out (which is why it could be of help to you sooner than expected).
