Waiver watch: Slow starters to pick up now


Every week, we’ll mine the waiver wire for lesser-owned assets to help your squad, whether you favor dynasty or the redraft format, and we’ll also toss in some tips for DFS players out there. Finally, we will look at some former go-to fantasy assets who may be overvalued – in the short- or long-term – for one reason or another.


Kevin Hayes, C/RW, Philadelphia Flyers (Rostered in 28.4 percent of ESPN.com leagues): After an utterly underwhelming first half to November, Hayes is productively back on track with 16 points in 19 games, including four goals in his most recent four contests. Now the new Flyer is centering a second scoring line with Travis Konecny and James van Riemsdyk, and a secondary power play with Jakub Voracek. Pick up the former Ranger (Jet for a brief minute) if you need fantasy help up front.

Christian Dvorak, C/LW, Arizona Coyotes (15.2 percent): Centering a Coyotes’ top line with Taylor Hall, the 23-year-old assisted on a goal from the new Arizona winger against the Stars on Sunday. Give this forward duo a minutes to grow some chemistry, and Dvorak could be in for a blustery second half to 2019-20. Whether joined by Phil Kessel or Conor Garland.
