0 207


Steven Stamkos – $7,700 Draftkings $8,700 Fanduel
Match up – Detroit

Here we go again another night of NHL DFS and another easy match up for the Tampa Bay Lightning against the Detroit Red Wings. He is going against Jimmy Howard who has lost his last three starts. All i need to say about Steven Stamkos is on a role with 3 goals and 17 assists in his first ten games! For cash games he is worth paying up for

Claude Giroux – $6,400 Draftkings $7,400 Fanduel
Match up – Ottawa

If You want a player who makes every shot count look no further. Giroux is finding the back of the net on 26.3% of his shots. He has 8 points in his last 5 games. He is going up against Craig Anderson, who is rather inconsistent. At $6,400 on Draftkings I love his price, I wouldn’t pay up for him on Fanduel though

Clayton Keller – $5,000 Draftkings $5,500 Fanduel
Match up – New York Rangers

This is a player who I really like tonight, His match up against the rangers who are really struggling this year with a record of 2-6-2. Rangers will also have their back up goalie Ondrej Pavelec in net who 0-2 this year and has given up at least 3 goals in each of those games. Keller has 6 goals and 4 assists through 9 games even though the Coyotes haven’t won a game yet I think tonight will be the night! To add to his value he is on the top line and the top power play line as well. he will be my lock of the night.

Notable Mentions – John Tavares, Ryan Getzlaf, Evgeni Malkin and Connor Mcdavid




Nikita Kucherov – $8,200 Draftkings $9,200 Fanduel
Match up – Detroit

I just can’t get away from Kucherov he just keeps putting up points every night in the NHL. Until he slows down I will continue to play him in all my cash game line ups. He has 17 points through 10 games.


Brad Marchand – $7,500 Draftkings $7,800 Fanduel
Match up – San Jose

Brad is one who you can play in a lot of my lineups with 5 goals in his last 5 games he is a solid pick tonight in his match up against Martin Jones who has won his last 4 games but hasn’t really played against any good teams. I think Marchand will be fairly low owned, to me he makes a great GPP play tonight.

Patrick Maroon – $4,700 Draftkings $6,100 Fanduel
Match up -Dallas

Patrick Maroon is on quite the hot streak with 2 goals and 1 assist in his last three games. He is on the top line with Connor Mcdavid which can never be bad thing. Tonight they face Ben Bishop who has a .872 save percentage over his last 3 games. At his price of just $4,700 he is a no brainer for me tonight. Maroon is also on the second power play unit to add some extra value.


Notable mentions – Jamie Benn, Jacob Voracheck, Anders Lee, Connor Sheary



Kris Letang – $6,200 Draftkings $6,800 Fanduel
Match up – Winnipeg

Another night of hockey, another night I call up on my favorite defenseman of the night Kris Letang. Perhaps one of the most well-rounded defenseman in the league he can score shoot and even block shots. last game he had 5 shots on net and 5 blocked shots, even though he didn’t get a point still put up some valuable points. tonight they go against the Jets who have been winning but have also been giving up a lot of goals this season they are 27th in the league for goals against average with 3.71 per game.

Ron Hainsey – $3,100 Draftkings $3,800 Fanduel
Match up – Carolina

Ron Hainsey is my value pick of the night. He isn’t a huge playmaker however he does have 3 points in his last 3 games, making him an excellent cash play for tonight and at his low price he will free up some money to spend on the bigger name forwards. not to mention the match up against Carolina is one i really like. Hainsy is no slouch either don’t let the cheap price tag fool you he is still on the top defensive pairing.

Ryan Suter – $5,400 Draftkings $4,900 Fanduel
Match up – New York Islanders

Suter is my punt for the night, he is an all or none player. He either has a multi point game or goes pointless. He is still on the top defensive pairing against a team that struggling to keep pucks pout of their net. At this price i will be throwing him in a few of my line ups. Ryan Suter does have 1 goal and 5 assists through 7 games so he does have descent upside if you chose to gamble on him.

Notable mentions – Oscar Klefbom, Victor Hedman, Aaron Ekblad, Jacob Slavin, John Klingberg



Andrei Vasilevskiy  – $8,400 Draftkings $9,300 Fanduel
Match up – Detroit

What more do I need to say about Andrei Vasilevskiy he has won his last 7 starts and is coming off a shutout against Carolina. Did i mention he has a .936 save percentage. he will be my cash game pick of the night for sure.

Frederik Andersen – $7,800 Draftkings $8,500 Fanduel
Match up – Carolina

Anderson is 6-2 this season,  and going up against the struggling Carolina Hurricanes. The thing with anderson is he may not be the best goalie in the league, but he doesn’t need to be. He has Matthews and the rest of his powerhouse offense to score goals so he can give 3 goals a night and still get the win. Anderson has a .900 save percentage if you’re looking to save some money Anderson is the guy to help you do that

please note that i make these lineups in the mornings and sometimes goalie changes are made late. please verify that the goalie is starting before locking him into your lineup.
