Why the Jaguars want to decrease Travis Etienne Jr s workload in 2024

With the final fantasy hockey results in the books for 2023-24 and the playoffs underway, let's take a swing at how the fantasy landscape might look come next October for those who like to plan early.

It will almost certainly be a much different picture to be painted following the playoffs -- not to mention the relocation of the Arizona Coyotes to Utah. (For the sake of simplicity, the players for Arizona are still listed below with "Ari" next to their name, as we don't know if it will be "Uta.")

Not to mention some key names that will be relocating themselves, possibly, in free agency. That list includes Sam Reinhart, Jake Guentzel and Jonathan Marchessault, some players on steep discounts like Matt Duchene, Jonathan Drouin and Sean Monahan, as well as other potential top-six pieces like Vladimir Tarasenko, Tyler Toffoli and Elias Lindholm.

The goalie carousel will be in full swing as well, even though there are fewer big free agents. The New Jersey Devils have been pretty vocal about their goal to go big-game hunting and players like Jacob Markstrom and Juuse Saros have been floated as targets.

For now, here is our top 300 list to start chewing on for the coming campaign.

These rankings are based on expectations of fantasy points produced for the entire 2024-25 NHL season. Fantasy points are based on the ESPN Fantasy standard game.
