Waiver Wire - Week 16

by chewy 21. January 2014 06:42

We've got just a couple weeks of fantasy action to go before falling into the Olympic slumber.  Don't miss your opportunity to upgrade your roster and prepare your team for the final push before playoff season creeps up.

 

While the wire is typically highlighting lesser known talent, this week there are a number of fantasy veterans who had falled off in recent years or months.  Some of these veterans have turned up the heat in recent weeks:

 

OFFENSE

 

Ryan Clowe (NJ)

The PIMs have dried up a bit, but he's seemed to regain his old scoring touch.  9 points over his last 7 games for the Devils.

 

David Legwand and Mike Fisher (NAS)

The Predators have come back from the dead offensively in January, and the two centers have been leading the cause. Over the past 4 games, Legwand has piled up 7 points, along with a healthy plus-minus and PIM contribution.    Fisher has been even better, with 14 points in 13 games.

 

Brad Richards (NYR)

Another back from the dead?  8 points in 7 games has the up and down veteran back on the upswing.

 

Scott Hartnell (PHI)

Over the last month, Hartnell has been producing at over a point-per-game.  Teaming up with Schenn and Simmonds, the 2nd line in Philly has been on fire.

 

Nazem Kadri (TOR)

Kadri and the Leafs have awoken in the past week.  He has 5 points in his last 3 games. 

 

Brad Marchand (BOS)

Marchand was written off by many for a horrid start to this season.  His ice time and production have steadily crept back in recent weeks.  He has been scoring goals consistently, talling 9 in his last 13 games.  He is capable of being a top 20 fantasy option.

 

 

DEFENSE

 

Andrej Meszaros (PHI)

It's been a few years since Meszaros was a significant fantasy factor.  With 9 points in the last 7 games, he has my attention.

 

 

GOALIES

 

Darcy Kuemper (MIN)

Trying to predict the goalie situation in Minnesota is a bit painful right now.  Backstrom has fallen out of favor.  Harding's health is a mystery.  In steps Kuemper to win 4 of 5 starts, including a shutout.  Not a long-term solution, but you may be able to ride him to the Olympic break.
