2020 Fantasy Outlook
Georgiev was the Rangers' No. 1 netminder for large stretches of the 2019-20 campaign, compiling a 17-14-2 record while posting a 3.04 GAA, .910 save percentage and two shutouts in 34 appearances, but he essentially lost the starting gig to Igor Shesterkin toward the end of the regular season, who finished the year with a 10-2-0 record, a 2.51 GAA and a spectacular .932 save percentage in 12 appearances. Shesterkin will enter the 2020-21 campaign as New York's clear-cut starter, but Georgiev should still see at least 30-35 percent of the work and register a winning record while posting decent GAA and save percentage figures. That won't move the needle much in fantasy, but virtual managers that select Shesterkin early on in this year's draft should make a point of snagging Georgiev in the mid-late-to late rounds, as he'll be one of the best handcuffs available this year.

Georgiev will defend the road net in Sunday's game versus the Devils, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
ANALYSIS
Georgiev will make his first start since April 9, and it'll be his second start since March 19. The 25-year-old has been simply mediocre this season, recording a .903 save percentage and a 6-5-2 record. The matchup against the Devils is quite intriguing, though, as they sit 27th in the league with 2.47 goals per game.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Georgiev has plenty of upside but a number of obstacles standing in his way. The 23-year-old posted an unimpressive 2.91 GAA in 33 appearances (30 starts) last season, but that was accompanied by a .914 save percentage as the Rangers' abhorrent defense hemorrhaged quality scoring chances in front of him. While he could push for a similar workload this season with Henrik Lundqvist another year older, Georgiev will also have to check the rearview mirror with top goaltending prospect Igor Shesterkin coming stateside after dominating the KHL. Georgiev's numbers should improve since the team in front of him got significantly better this offseason, but he'll need to earn his playing time.
Georgiev got his first taste of NHL action near the end of last season, appearing in 10 games and starting nine. The 22-year-old goaltending prospect flashed some ability with a .918 save percentage, but he posted a 3.15 GAA playing for a Rangers team that blew things up at the trade deadline. New York should be better with a fresh start under a new coaching staff, though Henrik Lundqvist will obviously be the team's top option in net. Still, Georgiev is expected to have the backup job and is thus one Lundqvist injury or slump away from a starting gig at the highest level.
