A tough decision can be made easier with these charts showing you the best five and worst five schedules for upcoming seven-day periods. Some of you used them last year but for the benefit of new readers here is a refresher. The number next to the team indicates the 'multiplier' to use on a player's point-per-game pace to give you an idea how many points to expect for that week.

 

Next week is All-Star week, so after a busy Tuesday with 13 games and a strangely quiet Wednesday with only one, the league will go on hold for six long, agonizing days. Here are some things to watch out for:

 

The biggest thing to be aware of coming into this stretch of minimal games is the multiple teams with zero game weeks. Calgary and Los Angeles are left sitting during the Tuesday to Monday week; the Kings along with Dallas, Florida and St. Louis are game-less for the Wednesday to Tuesday; and the Blues are actually in the same boat for the Thursday to Wednesday and Friday to Thursday weeks.

 

So the main warning to take out of this is hopefully you’re not relying on too many Blues at this point. After playing next Tuesday against the Penguins, St. Louis has a massive ten day layoff and doesn’t play again until Friday, February 3.

 

Two Week Look Ahead


Because there isn’t too much to dive into because of the limited games this upcoming week, I decided to put together another chart that looks at games played over a two week schedule, since most fantasy providers join the next two weeks together. Unfortunately, this is only going to be looking at the Monday, January 23 to Sunday, February 5 schedule. The usual charts are down below.

 

Six Games: Winnipeg



Five Games: Boston, Columbus, Detroit, Montreal, Nashville, New Jersey, Long Island, New York, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Jose, Toronto, Washington



Four Games: Anaheim, Buffalo, Carolina, Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Edmonton, Florida, LA, Minnesota, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Vancouver

 

Three Games: Calgary, Phoenix
