No. 73 - Fancy Fantasy: Which Advanced Stats Can Help Me Win My Pool?

September 13, 2015
Advanced stats aren't scary-- au contraire, you can wield them as a secret weapon that helps put you over the top in your fantasy pool.

On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian identify and demystify the 'fancy' stats that will help you work out streaks, slumps and player fantasy values on your way to winning your league. We also explain a couple statistical "red herrings" that you might be putting too much stock in when evaluating a player's likelihood to put up points.

Players discussed on this episode include Kevin Shattenkirk, Jiri Hudler, Brayden Schenn, Tyler Johnson, Anze Kopitar, Tyler Kennedy, Jason Spezza, Mike Santorelli, Sean Monahan, Nikita Kucherov, and more.

Keeping Karlsson is proudly presented by DobberHockey.com.
