NHL DFS DraftKings Picks

October 13/22

Slate SUmmary

  • Auston Matthews underperformed last night as he went pointless against the Montreal Canadiens. The same old problems where the Maple Leafs lack in defense. If they want to win games, Matthews will have to score at least a point per game. Even if he doesn’t, he still has a very safe floor as he puts up a lot of shots on net to secure the shot bonus.
  • There are many solid cash game plays today as it is a big 10 game slate. My favorite might have to be Mark Stone for $4,300. Not only did the captain of the VGK score a goal in their first game, he logged 18 minutes of ice time. I will be prioritizing them against the Blackhawks today.
  • Alex Pietrangelo for 5.5k is someone I want to target when building out my lineup. He has a high floor and plays a weaker opponent. He has a complete game where he can score goals, hand out assists and block shots. My favorite part is that he played 22+ minutes which is very important.
  • I’ll take another VGK defensemen in Shea Theodore for 5.2k. Just like Pietrangelo, Theodore provides a safe floor and that is what you want in cash games. Theodore is like Pietrangelo with a well-rounded game and plays heavy minutes. Another bonus is that he is on the top power play unit which correlates well with Stone and Eichel.
