Bryan Rust is still available in 68% of Yahoo leagues, while David Krejci can be had in 70% of Yahoo leagues.  They are both worthy of long-term spots on your fantasy roster.  Andre Burakovsky was owned in 22% of Yahoo leagues last week when he was featured on Waiver Wired and now he’s owned in 56%.  Derick Brassard is owned in just 25% of Yahoo leagues, while Cody Eakin is still flying under the radar with a 1% ownership.

Mikael Granlund (Nashville) - LW, RW - Owned in 28% of Yahoo leagues 

Granlund has started to turn it around following a 12-game scoreless skid.  He has generated one goal and four assists in the last five matches.  Granlund has also racked up 15 shots on target during that span.  He has been clicking with Matt Duchene and Calle Jarnkrok.  If he can maintain this level of play then he is worthy of a spot on your fantasy team.  

Jason Zucker (Minnesota) - LW, RW - Owned in 23% of Yahoo leagues 

Zucker has stepped up since calling out himself, his teammates and his coach in an outburst that he ended up apologizing for.  He has six goals and 14 points in 16 games since making the comments.  Zucker hasn’t gone more than one match without picking up at least one point in his past 13 outings.  He also currently has three goals and one assist during a three-game point streak.  Zucker has played well on the top line of the Wild with Eric Staal and Mats Zuccarello.

Pavel Buchnevich (New York Rangers) - RW - Owned in 20% of Yahoo leagues 

Buchnevich has been productive this campaign with four goals and 14 assists in 21 contests.  He has been a steady producer for the Rangers in 2019-20, while averaging a career-high 17:03 of ice time per game.  Buchnevich has two goals and eight helpers in the last nine matches.  He has played well alongside Chris Kreider and Filip Chytil.  Buchnevich was called out for a mistake he made by coach David Quinn prior to Saturday’s game, which could be something to monitor, but he responded with a goal and three shots in a comeback win over Montreal in his next outing.  

Anthony Beauvillier (New York Islanders) - C, LW - Owned in 19% of Yahoo leagues 

Beauvillier was mentioned last week on Waiver Wired when linemate Derick Brassard was recommended as a pickup.  Beauvillier was owned in just 4% of Yahoo leagues at the time.  His four-game point streak came to an end on Saturday, but he impressed during that stretch with six goals and two assists.  Beauvillier has also been playing on the top power-play unit of the Islanders and he’s tied for the team lead with four points on the man advantage.  

Anthony Duclair (Ottawa) - LW, RW - Owned in 16% of Yahoo leagues 

Duclair has tallied four goals and two assists in the past four games.  He has racked up 12 shots during that span.  Duclair has amassed nine goals and 14 points in the last 15 games, which includes a stretch when he went three contests without a point prior to his recent hot streak.  He has meshed nicely with Brady Tkachuk and has been seeing time on Ottawa’s top power-play unit.  

Alex Killorn (Tampa Bay) - LW, RW - Owned in 13% of Yahoo leagues 

Killorn appeared on Waiver Wired a week ago when he was owned in 8% of Yahoo leagues.  He is riding a seven-game point streak, which has been highlighted by three goals and seven assists.  Killorn has accounted for five goals and 14 points in the past 14 games.  He has been clicking with Anthony Cirelli, who has been firing on all cylinders as well lately and he is owned in just 5% of Yahoo leagues.  Killorn has also been seeing action on the top power-play unit of the Lightning.  

Morgan Frost (Philadelphia) - C, LW - Owned in 10% of Yahoo leagues 

Frost was recalled from the minors earlier this week.  He made his NHL debut on Nov. 19 and scored a goal against Florida.  Frost followed that up with one goal and one assist against Carolina, but he was held off the scoresheet for the first time against Calgary on Saturday.  He has been skating alongside Claude Giroux and Travis Konecny on the top line, while seeing time on the first power-play unit as well.  Frost has plenty of long-term value for keeper leagues, but his prominent roles and production makes him a worthy option for standard formats right now as well.  

Juuse Saros (Nashville) - G - Owned in 10% of Yahoo leagues 

Saros has been playing better following a rough start to the year and he has performed well in his last five starts, while allowing two goals or fewer in each outing, despite picking up just two wins.  However, he is coming off a solid 24-save, 4-2 win over St. Louis on Saturday.  That ended a six-game winless skid for the Predators (0-5-1).  The team plays four games this coming week, including a back-to-back set.  Saros could share the crease with Pekka Rinne, who has struggled of late, during that stretch.  

Nick Suzuki (Montreal) - C, RW - Owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues 

Suzuki has heated up with three goals and three assists in the last six games.  He has been credited with 13 shots on goal during that span, while seeing time among Montreal’s top-six forwards.  Suzuki has been playing alongside Max Domi and Artturi Lehkonen of late.  He helped break Domi out of lengthy goal drought on Saturday.  Suzuki has value as a short-term addition if this promotion sticks and he still has a great deal of value in keeper formats.   

Oliver Bjorkstrand (Columbus) - LW, RW - Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues 

Bjorkstrand has generated one goal and five assists over a three-game point streak.  He has registered a multi-point effort in five of the last 10 games to give him 10 points during that stretch.  Bjorkstrand has been skating alongside Boone Jenner and Gustav Nyquist at even strength, while seeing time on the top power-play unit.  He has four points (one goal, three assists) on the man advantage during his current scoring spree.  Bjorkstrand is worthy of a flier at this time.
