Waiver Watch: Fantasy Pick Ups Of The Week
Each week, we’ll be looking at three players to pick up on the waiver-wire to help your squad. Whether it’s a points league or a stat category based league.
Here are the players you should consider adding to your rosters this week.
Michael Cammalleri- New Jersey Devils
7 goals, 14 assists, +4, 12 PIM, 4 PPP, 45 SOG. 16:54 ATOI
Cammalleri is coming off a strong month of November. After a brief injury, he scored all seven of his goals this month alone, and he scored twice in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday night. He won’t necessarily keep up this pace, but he is a great boost for your team if he’s available on your waiver wire. He is also skating on the Devils top-line since Taylor Hall is out with an injury.
Cammalleri is a good pick up, especially for those who are in head-to-head leagues.
David Perron- St. Louis Blues
6 goals, 9 assists, 15 points, -5, 14 PIM, 5 PPP, 45 SOG, 18:03 ATOI
After being held off the score sheet for his first 10 off 11 games on the season, Perron has plenty of upside right now. He is finding his stride with six points in his last five games, he’s skating on the Blues top-line with Paul Statsny and Jaden Schwartz. If that’s not enough, he’s also on the top power-play line with star forward Vladimir Tarasenko.
Charlie Coyle- Minnesota Wild
8 goals, 7 assists, 15 points, +5, 18 PIM, 3 PPP, 51 SOG, 18:06 ATOI
Charlie Coyle is becoming a fantasy asset. Coyle is on Minnesota’s top line with Eric Staal and Zach Praise, and he plays on the teams top power-play unit. He has three goals and two assists in his last five games for 16 points on the season. Coyle is well on his way to surpass his career-high 42 points from last season. He’s worth your attention on the waiver wire but he won’t be anonymous for long.
