NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 18)

FANDUEL

Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $10,000

  • We are back with our daily DFS core plays for both FanDuel & DraftKings! Starting off with NHL, we have a 5 game slate now as the Canucks vs Maple Leafs has been postponed. That leaves us with McDavid as the best spend up on the slate.

Sean Couturier (PHI) (C) – $5,700

  • Couturier is a great option if you are looking for value. The last 3 games, he has played 21, 21 and 25 minutes. Minutes is money in cash games and I like his upside tonight against the Senators.

DRAFTKINGS

Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,700

  • I prefer McDavid on FD a lot more today and currently, I don’t have him in my optimal lineup. However, I’m going to try to find a way to fit him in. He has the potential to break the slate so i’ll eat the chalk and the loss if he performs poorly (which rarely happens).

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (LW) – $3,200

  • Kubalik has been playing really well as of late notching 3 points in his last 3 games. He is projected to continue playing on L3/PP2 which isn’t awful. This play is strictly due to his cheap price tag which allows us to play McDavid at 9.7k.

Alexander Radulov (DAL) (RW) – $3,000

  • Another salary relief play is Radulov at 3k. Unlike Kubalik, he gets to play on the top power play unit which is great and his team has the highest team total on the slate.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Dougie Hamilton (NJ) (D) – $6,500
  • Patrick Kane (CHI) (W) – $7,800

DK

  • Anton Forsberg (OTT) (G) – $7,100
  • Dougie Hamilton (NJ) (D) – $7,400

KEY INJURY NEWS

  • None
