2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Alex Lyon in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a two-year, $1.5 million contract extension with the Flyers in July of 2018.
Defeated at home by Habs
GPhiladelphia Flyers
January 16, 2020
Lyon allowed four goals on 40 shots, making 36 saves in a 4-1 loss to Montreal on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
The 27-year-old was making his first start of the season at the NHL level, promoted in the wake of Carter Hart's abdominal injury, but failed to pick up the win. Lyon has 19 wins in the minors this season, but his last victory at the NHL level was back in 2017, meaning trusting him to deliver in fantasy won't be easy. Even set for a decent NHL workload because of Hart's injury, Lyon isn't worth owning in fantasy.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
With numerous goaltending injuries during the second half of 2017-18, Lyon received his chance to start in the NHL. He began slowly, but in his last five appearances, he went 2-0-1 with a .912 save percentage. Overall, he finished 4-2-1 with a .905 save percentage and 2.75 GAA in 11 NHL games. The Flyers liked enough of what they saw to sign him to a two-year deal this summer. Petr Mrazek has departed for the Hurricanes, but Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth remain in the Flyers organization, so in all likelihood, Lyon will begin the season in the AHL, where he went 22-13-2 with a .924 save percentage and 2.50 GAA last year. If called upon, Lyon has to the potential to be a serviceable NHL goaltender in 2018-19 and could be used as a streaming option in fantasy circuits.
