Where fantasy drafts are won and lost, though, is in the middle to later rounds. Maybe it’s a super rookie whose NHL ability is unknown, or a young player who is on the verge of a breakout. Or it could even be a veteran who is ready for a bounce-back after one forgettable season. So in those later rounds, which players could be difference-makers for your team? Below is a list of players for you to target as you are filling out your roster at the draft.
There was plenty of fantasy-related news to draw from this article by Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times regarding the state of the Ducks. It won’t all fit into one paragraph, and it will affect the team over the next month or two or three. Hopefully you didn’t use a significant pick on Ryan Kesler. The second-line center may miss the first few months of the season following offseason hip surgery.
Pasta Problems, Draft Strategies with spreadsheets in mind, plus more... In my auction league (and in many other leagues), the one position that has been recognized as being relatively thin is right wing. Mid-tier right wings have been selling at higher prices than higher-tier centers and even left wings. Turned off by some of the prices of right wings, I’ve decided to go thin at that position this season. One of the right wingers that I’m hoping to lean on heavily this season is David Pastrnak.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
