Fantasy Hockey Week 20 Waiver Wire Forwards – 02/27/24

The waiver wire is a great place to find players each week who will help your fantasy hockey team, whether it be for the short term or the long term. You have likely already taken advantage of this through the first 19 weeks of fantasy. Even if you have, there will still be strong options on the waiver wire at forward that we will look at again for this week. Whether it is only for a few games, these players are worth adding to help your team out. This is the place where you can find great options to take advantage of before anyone else does.

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire: Forwards to Consider for Week 20

Gabriel Vilardi, Winnipeg Jets

Gabriel Vilardi and the Winnipeg Jets went cold for a little while, but it seems as though they are back on the right track. This is partly due to the outburst of offensive production from Vilardi. He is still playing on the top line beside Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor, so points are bound to come.

Vilardi is up to 30 points in 36 games and is also on the top power play. What makes him a must-add right now is his five goals and 10 points in his last 10 games. Since he was cold and banged up and out of the lineup before this streak, it didn’t seem like he was worth keeping on your fantasy team. Eight of his 10 points over that five-game stretch have come on the power play and he has taken four shots in four of the five games. The Jets play four games this week, so you will get the most out of him.

Bobby McMann, Toronto Maple Leafs

The Toronto Maple Leafs have gotten production from their top guns as they can expect, but there has been one player really making an impact as well. Bobby McMann has stepped up in a major way recently and has been one of the top goal-scorers in the league. While having nine goals and 17 points in 33 games, seven goals and 10 of those points have come in the past seven games.

McMann is deservedly playing more and these goals and points have added to his already physical nature. He has been able to produce offensively, has shot the puck more due to a higher confidence level, delivered multiple hits every game, and still blocks shots. He may not stay hot forever, but he is definitely getting a better opportunity now that he has proven he can play at a higher level. Consider him until he proves you otherwise.

Mason McTavish, Anaheim Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks haven’t been the most productive team this season, and that’s a reason why they are at the bottom of the standings, but Mason McTavish has been solid all season. He hasn’t been extremely consistent, but when he’s on, he does everything. When he’s not scoring, he is still taking penalties, hitting, and blocking shots at a strong rate for a forward.

McTavish has four goals and eight points in his last six games and three of them have been multi-point games. The Ducks play three times this week, and not against the most difficult opponents, so it is not a bad idea to think McTavish can produce a bit more for your fantasy team. If he doesn’t put up some points, you can at least count on him helping out in some other areas.
