Core Plays

Nikita Kucherov (TB) (RW) – $7,500

  • Kucherov is my favorite play on both sites today. His price got bumped up from 7.2k to 7.5k but still viable in cash games. The only concern for me is that he hasn’t shot the puck enough in his last 2 games. He did pick up a bunch of assists but the DK scoring system benefits the goal scorers more. That being said, he provides a safe floor as he has hit double digit fps in his last 4 games. Should be 5 in a row against the Habs tonight.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,400

  • The only player that is over 9k and well deserved. Leading the league in goals (50), Matthews has a great chance to add to his incredible season against the Flyers who are top 9 in goals against. There are lots of value plays to pick from, even going down to Sanford and Tippett (which I don’t think you need today) so I’m all in on Matthews. Locking him in as well as Kucherov as my must plays for cash games.

Value Plays

Zach Sanford (WPG) (LW) – $2,500

Owen Tippett (PHI) (RW) – $2,500

GPP Plays

Steven Stamkos (TB) (LW) – $6,700

Brayden Point (TB) (C) – $6,200
