RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Read racked up 24 points in 42 games with the Flyers last season. It wasn't as impressive as his breakout rookie season, but Read still posted solid numbers. If the 27-year-old can return to form this season, he could provide solid value as a late-round pickup.
In his rookie year Matt Read posted an impressive 47 points in 79 games, with his 24 goals leading all NHL rookies. Many felt he was overlooked in consideration for the Calder Trophy, but Read will look to build on an impressive start and has earned his ice-time with the Flyers. Now that his rookie season is out of the way, Read may be on the verge of a breakout year that could produce serious value for fantasy owners. He's not as young as most rookies, as he turned 26 this past June, so his ceiling isn't as high as other talented rookies. Still, he's well worth a look in deeper leagues as he could challenge 30 goals.
