We are nearing the end of the regular season in fantasy with just a few weeks at most left. This means you may be fighting for your playoff life and need to take advantage of every add available to you. Here are three forwards who have been hot and will surely put up points for you this weekend to hopefully get your team over the top.
Joel Farabee – Philadelphia Flyers – 18% Rostered
The departure of Claude Giroux after his endorsement of Joel Farabee before his final game has almost flipped a switch. He has two goals and four assists in his past four games and is also giving fantasy owners every other category as well, including 11 penalty minutes in that span.
On Sunday, the Flyers take on the Nashville Predators who have just allowed six goals in back-to-back games against the Los Angeles Kings and Vegas Golden Knights. The Philadelphia Flyers’ offence has been going pretty well over the last while despite not being able to string together wins. Until the Predators figure out how to keep the puck out of their net, Farabee has a solid matchup to add to your point totals.
Brock Nelson – New York Islanders – 36% Rostered
Brock Nelson has the advantage over many possible players to pick up this weekend in that he plays two games. In the past four games, he has scored five goals and three assists, including a hat trick. He, like Farabee, will give you points from all stat categories and is just one goal away from hitting 30 on the season. You can bet he wants to hit that as soon as possible.
The New York Islanders have also been rolling, winning seven of their past nine games. The offence lately has been running through Nelson, so watch for him to stay hot and get himself on the scoresheet more this weekend.
Evgenii Dadonov – Vegas Golden Knights – 8% Rostered
Evgenii Dadonov has been scoring lately, and the Vegas Golden Knights have needed it. But that was before the voided trade. It was almost inevitable that he would come into his first game after that whole situation playing hard. He ended the night with a goal and two assists. I expect the remainder of the season to be similar, as he now has five goals in his past five games, contributing a lot on the power play, and adds more fantasy value in other areas as well.
With a number of top players out for the Golden Knights, Dadonov will continue to get the ice time and opportunities as the team is desperately trying to get themselves into a playoff spot and avoid missing the postseason for the first time in their history.
