NHL DFS DraftKings Picks

October 12/22

Slate Summary

  • I love the build today on DraftKings allowing you to play Matthews, MacKinnon, Rantanen and even the best player in Connor McDavid.
  • Matthews for $8,400 is my favorite here. The reigning leading goal scorer last year will look to dominate the league against last years worst team in the Habs. Really no reason to fade him in cash games but can be viable in GPPs.
  • MacKinnon won his first Stanely Cup last season which was well deserved. He had 85 points in only 65 games and although his team is without their captain Landeskog to open the season, MacKinnon and Rantanen provide more than enough firepower.
  • Speaking of Rantanen, he will be on the top line beside MacKinnon which gives you a nice positive correlation stack. He is coming off a career season with 92 points and 6.7k is just too low. This pairing is dangerous every time they step on the ice and are also paired up on the top power play unit.
