NHL DFS FanDuel and DraftKings Core Plays (October 15)


Conor Garland (VAN) (W) – $5,400

  • Conor made his Canucks debut on Wednesday and instantly made a difference with his offensive skills. He is a true goal scorer and should definitely shoot more than 2 shots. Look for him to snipe a goal tonight and on top of that, he played 20 minutes on L2 / PP2.

Sean Couturier (PHI) (C) – $6,500

  • The Philadelphia Flyers are playing their season debut tonight against a very weak Canucks defense. Sean will be playing on L1 as well as PP1. At this price, he is my favorite play on FanDuel for cash games.

Dougie Hamilton (NJ) (D) – $6,500

  • Dougie had himself a massive payday this summer signing a 7 year / 63 million contract with the New Jersey Devils. There is no doubt that the Devils number 1 defensemen will be Dougie moving forward and it’s a no brainer as he is projected to be on L1 / PP1. He was a great cash game play all throughout last season as he always provides a safe floor.


Sean Couturier (PHI) (C) – $7,100

  • I know Sean is the most expensive center tonight but on a 3 game slate, you need to spend up somewhere and I just love this play on both sites. The Canucks defense looks questionable on paper and looked even worse in their season opener against the Oilers.

Dougie Hamilton (NJ) (D) – $6,700

  • Dougie will play the most minutes out of anyone tonight for the Devils because he is such a dependable player. I locked him in both sites for cash games.

Cam Talbot (MIN) (G) – $8,300

  • Cam is currently listed GTD but if he plays, he is my favorite goalie of the slate. The Ducks did score 4 goals against the Jets a couple days ago but I just can’t see how the Wild lose this game. Cam is a solid goalie when healthy.
