NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 4)

FANDUEL

Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $9,000

  • The Ottawa Senators are dead last in the NHL and Nate has the potential to light them up tonight. He is my favorite spend up on both sites.

Mikko Rantanen (COL) (W) – $8,400

  • I want to pair up Mikko with MacKinnon tonight and attack the Senators. Both players are elite and have solid floors with ceiling upside.

Mika Zibanejad (NYR) (C) – $7,000

  • Mika hasn’t scored a goal for 11 straight games. That’s a bit concerning but he has been producing even without finding the back of the net. For 7k, I don’t mind him here and think he is viable in cash games.

Cole Caufield (MON) (W) – $3,600

  • My first 3 core plays were priced up which is why I am going to list Caufield as a core play because for 3.6k, he is just way too cheap. Great salary relief play here.

DRAFTKINGS

Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $8,900

  • Lock against the Senators.

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (LW) – $3,400

  • I had to double check to make sure I got the pricing right. It’s shocking that Kubalik is 3.4k. I remember rostering him when he was closer to 5k but with him playing on L3/PP2, this price is great for the value we get.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (W) – $4,900
