2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 26 Waiver Wire

Players to Consider/Drop For Your Squad(s)

2021-22 Fantasy Hockey Week 12 Unsustainable Players

If you're still checking in at this late point in the game, you're likely in the championship matchup. Once again, congratulations on your success but the job is not yet done. Now that you survived the toughest week from a scheduling standpoint, you're afforded more comfort in your current rostered players. Let's look at my 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 26 Waiver Wire plays in our final stand to attain fantasy glory.

This will be the last week of my coverage for the 2023-24 season. For any and all who read my articles throughout the campaign, I thank you for your time and I hope I was able to assist in some manner. As a final sendoff, I will suggest a half dozen players to hopefully greatly assist in you collecting the title/bragging rights.

Only one team plays twice and that's the Vegas Golden Knights. Anyone not named Jack Eichel or maybe Shea Theodore is potentially on the chopping block should you find yourself behind in the match. 17 teams play four times, giving you a plethora of options to choose from. As I mentioned last week, set your roster(s) for the entire week, find the holes, and plug accordingly.

I want to reiterate that my drop considerations are for redraft leagues. Additionally, I never consider plus/minus. Do yourself a favor and make your commissioner scrap the asinine category.

Gustav Nyquist, LW, Nashville Predators (46% rostered)

I suggested the 34-year-old Swede earlier in the season and one last time I will scream his praise from the rooftop. I said he's a proven 60-point player when he receives prime deployment. That has remained constant in Tennessee, leading to him already usurping said threshold, now on the brink of the first 70-point campaign of his career. His still relatively low ownership is dumbfounding, please take advantage.

Dylan Guenther, LW, Arizona Coyotes (8% rostered)

With 24 points through 37 games, the soon-to-be 21-year-old is thriving in a second-line, PP1 role in the desert. A top-ten pick in 2021, the production is no fluke. His strong play warrants him sticking in this deployment for the rest of the campaign, making him a sneaky late-season gem.

Jack Roslovic, RW, New York Rangers (5% rostered)

The former Columbus Blue Jacket has gelled quickly with Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider on the top line in Manhattan. While he'll never sniff time on their vaunted PP1, he seemingly offers strong potential to collect even strength points night in and night out. New York plays two of their four games on lighter nights, so it is more feasible to start him.

Anthony Duclair, LW, Tampa Bay Lightning (34% rostered)

Out of the hockey purgatory that is San Jose, the former third-round pick is producing for Tampa Bay with 9 points in the past 9 games played. The Lightning play three times in the first four days of this week making for a solid streamer.

Kaiden Guhle, D, Montreal Canadiens (7% rostered)

The 22-year-old Edmonton Oil King alum has the potential to give you a well-rounded stat line night in and night out. Known for physicality, he is also hitting the scoresheet with regularity. He posted 5 points in the past 5 games played. If you're in a multi-cat league he makes for a nice blue line addition this week.

Justus Annunen, G, Colorado Avalanche (11% rostered)

The Colorado Avalanche will likely begin resting Alexander Georgiev to keep him fresh for the postseason. They play the Blue Jackets on Monday night, making the backup a potential strong option to deliver a quick dagger to your opponent's heart in the goaltending categories. Playing four times this week, he may see two if not three of the starts.

Drops

Tristan Jarry, G, Pittsburgh Penguins

I say this as someone who drafted and owned the Steel City's starting goaltender all season. With four really bad starts in a row, it's too risky to suffer a blowout loss that he's been prone to lately.

Radko Gudas, D, Anaheim Ducks

If Gudas doesn't join the Ducks at some point during the team's five-game road trip, he could be out until April 5th versus the Seattle Kraken. If you lack IR slots, you can't currently waste a roster space on him.

Sean Couturier, C, Philadelphia Flyers

Diminishing ice time, a featured role in John Tortorella's doghouse, and three measly assists in the past month make him an absolute no-go.

 

Hopefully, these 2023-24 Fantasy Hockey Week 26 Waiver Wire plays are beneficial to you. I'll see you in the fall, enjoy your spring/summer!
