There are Lots of Possibilities for Predators on Your Fantasy Team

The Nashville Predators season is just over one month away from beginning. With the beginning of the NHL season also comes the beginning of fantasy hockey leagues. The Predators have five players listed in the Yahoo Sports 2015-16 Fantasy Hockey Top 100 Player Rankings , These are players that you should certainly consider for your team but there will be plenty of other teams after them too. We are also looking at early ESPN Rankings,  and Rankings.

The thing about Fantasy Hockey is that it’s so much more than just goals and points.  You get extra points for power play and short-handed goals and assists. Some leagues count for hits and penalty minutes. Game winning goals is another stat that can count but that one is pretty hard to forecast although there was a young Swede on the Preds last year that had a pretty good resume on that.

The other thing to consider is how important winning is to you.  That may sound like a foolish question but some folks would rather watch their home team players on the telecasts and see how they are doing for their fantasy team.  It is often said in Fantasy circles that you can play with your brain or play with your heart.

With that, let’s take a look at Predators players you want to have on your team.
