Slate SUmmary

  • 10 game slate and a lot of value on this slate. Starting off with my favorite play on DK, Travis Konecny. Tippett is min price who is a great play but Konecny is a better player overall. With more salary relief plays from the Habs like Gallagher and Hoffman, I plan on paying up for and playing at least 2 out of the 3 best players in the league. McDavid, Matthews and MacKinnon all provide a safe floor with slate breaking upside and I feel comfortable playing stars and scrubs today. For now, I have McDavid and MacKinnon but thinking of swapping in Matthews since he has been on fire. Definitely matchup proof as well.
