The Philadelphia Wings return to action in Week #6 and many of their players look like good buys in this week's NLL Fantasy Buy/Sell column. The first game of the week starts at 11:00 a.m. on Friday so be sure you set your fantasy lineups before then! Without further adieu, here are this week’s buys and sells:
Bob Snider (Washington $17) – Despite a disappointing fantasy performance last week against the Rochester Knighthawks, Bob Snider is still a great buy. He has a lot of potential to put up some big numbers in the fantasy game as evidenced by the fact he scored over 20 points three times already this season. At $17, he may still be undervalued.
Shawn Williams (Buffalo $18) – Maybe as a former Knighthawk Shawn Williams knows some secret strategy to penetrating Rochester’s defense because he had his best game of the season against them in Week #3 with 21 fantasy points. John Tavares missed last week’s game and if he doesn’t play this weekend against the Knighthawks, look for Williams to step up with some big numbers.
Philadelphia (Goalie - $19) – The Rochester Knighthawks have been struggling when it comes to scoring goals. Averaging just 9.75 goals per game, the Knighthawks have the worst ranked offense in the league. These struggles have resulted in some huge fantasy numbers for opposing goaltenders. Last week, Washington put up a whopping 36 fantasy points. The week before, Toronto’s goalies had a 29 fantasy point week against Rochester. With Philadelphia playing the K-Hawks this week, their goalies look like a solid buy.
Kyle Hartzell (Philadelphia $5) – Hartzell is a good affordable player who has consistently produced at or above his current cost each game this season. What’s not to like?
Kevin Buchanan (Philadelphia $12) – Buchanan is another Wings player that makes the buy list this week because of his good value. He is currently second on the team with 17 total points (4+13). At just $12, that makes him a steal! Get him in your lineup and reap the rewards of a price increase when he has another good game.
Shayne Jackson (Minnesota $15) – Jackson is a rookie with 20+ fantasy point potential. In four games this season, he has already registered two hat tricks. He put up 10 points in his worst game of the season as well so you shouldn’t have to worry about him suddenly having a terrible game.
Joe Walters (Rochester $6) – After some very good games in the postseason last year, Walters started off 2013 strong. But he has struggled the last few weeks despite seeming to get the ball even more than before. There are better options in this price range at transition to spend your money on.
Luke Wiles (Buffalo $17) – Wiles has started the season off on a dreadful cold streak and hasn’t shown any signs of snapping out of it anytime soon. In fact, he has gotten colder and colder each game. Last weekend he didn’t even register a point against the Toronto Rock. He had five loose balls but that isn’t anywhere near good enough to justify spending $17 on him. Keep Wiles off your fantasy team.
Hayden Smith (Buffalo $5) – Smith’s cost has gone down three times already this season, a trend that you obviously want to avoid participating in.
