2018 Fantasy Outlook
Changes in personnel have opened up a role for Fantenberg, who will get his chance to step in as part of the Kings' No. 2 defensive pairing in 2018-19. He averaged one point every three games last year and showed an ability to set up his teammates when he topped 20 assists in the KHL in 2016-17. If that was an indication of his true talent, he'll be a solid addition to your team on the waiver wire. However, unless you're in a deep league, you'll likely have more proven options available on draft day. Read Past Outlooks
Looking for consistency

Fantenberg didn't post a point Friday against San Jose, his only appearance to date this season.
ANALYSIS
Fantenberg has just nine points in his NHL career, so it isn't at all surprising to see him go without scoring. The more troubling thing for him is that he's been scratched in two straight games, including on his 27th birthday on Oct. 7. The Kings can't send him to AHL Ontario without him clearing waivers, so he's probably not going anywhere, but a player who's a healthy scratch in two out of three shouldn't be on your fantasy roster.
