Slate Summary

  • I’m going the same approach on DK where I am most likely going to play Kuemper in net and fade the Blues who have the lowest ITT.
  • Starting off my builds, I am locking in Mikko Rantanen who is extremely cheap for 6.7k. A player with his upside should be at least 7k, if not more. He is a much better play here than FD and I still have him locked on both sites. I’m looking for the Aves to dominate the Blues tonight.
  • I think the best way to go tonight is to spend up for Kuemper and find value from the sticks. The Aves have a 67% expected win rate compared to FLA with 60%. The Aves looked amazing in round 1 and should look to cruise past the Blues.
  • Killorn is my number 1 value play, playing on L2 / PP1. I think this game can stay close and competitive where Killorn can provide a solid floor. This is the cheapest he has ever been and hasn’t been priced under 3k since the regular season.


  • Mikko Rantanen (COL) (RW) – $6,700
  • Darcy Kuemper (COL) (G) – $8,400
  • Alex Killorn (TB) (RW) – $2,900


  • Alex Killorn (TB) (RW) – $2,900
  • Anthony Cirelli (TB) (LW) – $2,700
  • Mikahil Sergachev (TB) (D) – $3,300


  • FLA
  • COL
