Top 5 Edmonton Oilers Players to Watch for 2022 Fantasy Hockey

The Edmonton Oilers are one of the best fantasy sports teams in the NHL. Their best players have amassed plenty of points, and the team usually doesn’t lose games due to a lack of goalscoring.

In the 2021-22 NHL season, the Edmonton Oilers scored 290 goals, the league’s seventh-best goal tally. They averaged 3.48 goals per game and had an above average power play capitalizing on 25.96% of their chances on the man advantage.

In 2021-22, their team was led by Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl who both have over 100 points. McDavid had 123 and Draisaitl had 110. Other than that, they had five other players who had 40 or more points in Tyson Barrie, Kailer Yamamoto, Evan Bouchard, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Zach Hyman. So today, let’s go over five Edmonton Oilers players you might want on your fantasy team.

1. Connor McDavid

The first has to be Connor McDavid. It’s not a dormant pick for a fantasy team, as McDavid could become No. 1 overall in any draft. He had the most points in the NHL last season and there’s a good chance he’ll do it again this year.

Each season has seen McDavid find a way to elevate his game even further. In 2020-21, he had 105 points in 56 games, and he picked up where he left off by adding 123 points in 80 games the last year. He’s more than a points-per-game player and someone who’s guaranteed to give you a handful of points every night.

You can’t go wrong picking Connor McDavid in your fantasy league for the 2022-23 season! Let’s review a few other players.
