Tyler Seguin Has Zero Fantasy Hockey Value Moving Forward
Don’t be like Sean Allen. Remember him? We absolutely body-bagged ESPN’s fantasy hockey expert this year and we shall never forget the day that Allen ranked Tyler Seguin ahead of Brayden Point this past year. Let’s just call it a forewarning for the remaining years to come. If Seguin is ranked high in fantasy hockey again, please do not eat the cheese.
We have been over this Ad nauseam but Seguin just isn’t the same guy anymore. He’s never going to regain that old form. Seguin, 31, posted 50 points in 76 games for Dallas this year but it doesn’t tell the full story. He’s still good at winning faceoffs if your fantasy hockey league has a weird scoring format. Otherwise, he’s not really rosterable and I’m not sure he should be drafted moving forward. The former 2nd overall pick in 2010 posted 1.9 fantasy points per game. In fact, he scored just 0.1 more points than Ben Chiarot did for the season. If that’s your bar then Seguin simply shouldn’t be on fantasy rosters anymore.
He’s not getting better either. As I went over in the Ryan Suter article, Seguin was basically in witness protection during the Vegas series. AKA nowhere to be found. Third line center is probably in his future and if you’re bumped off lines that don’t include Hintz, Robertson, and Pavelski, you’re not fantasy relevant.
Heed the warning. The days of spending even medium-round draft picks on Tyler Seguin have to be over. You’re throwing picks down the toilet by doing it. It’s an automatic way to lose your fantasy league and only suckers make those sort of mistakes. Don’t be a sucker again and fall for the Seguin cheese. If you haven’t learned your lesson by now, it’s too late for you.
