Past Fantasy Outlooks
Dell was pretty solid as Martin Jones' backup last campaign, compiling a 15-5-4 record while posting a 2.64 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 29 appearances. The 29-year-old is a competent backup, but he's not going to push Jones for San Jose's starting job, and he'll be hard-pressed to surpass 30 appearances in 2018-19. Unless Jones sustains a long-term injury, Dell's fantasy value will be limited to owners in need of a spot starter this season.
Only a handful of backup goalies can entice fantasy owners like the 28-year-old from Alberta. Coming off a rookie season operating as the understudy to Martin Jones, Dell crafted an 11-6-1 record along with robust peripherals (2.00 GAA, .931 save percentage) over 17 starts and 20 games in all. It didn't take long for daily players to meticulously track his scheduled starts, using the low-priced goaltender as a building block for lineups otherwise stacked with elite-level skaters. As a true testament to his perseverance, Dell kept Lithuanian prospect Mantas Armalis -- now an unrestricted free agent -- off the NHL's ice for the entire campaign. Consider handcuffing Dell to Jones in season-long leagues and lock him up in DFS when the matchups are juicy.
All signs point to Dell competing with Mantas Armalis for the backup goalie gig in San Jose this upcoming season. While Armalis is the bigger puck plugger, it's Dell who should have the upper hand while playing second fiddle to Martin Jones since he's the one experienced with minor-league affiliate AHL San Jose. With the Baby Sharks, he's fashioned a 32-24-8 record, 0.924 save percentage, and 2.24 save mark averaged out over the past two seasons. Health permitting, starting backstop Martin Jones should grab over 60 starts which leaves Dell as little more than handcuff in the fantasy realm.
