NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 8)

FANDUEL

Mika Zibanejad (NYR) (C) – $6,900

  • Mika under 7k is a bit too cheap in my opinion. I like the matchup he is in and he has been very solid the past 5 games. My favorite play on both sites, especially on DK for 6.4k.

Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $9,500

  • Nathan MacKinnon is the highest priced player today and very well deserves to be. I had to double check to make sure he had only 1 goal and 17 points in 12 games which is crazy as he still gets there without scoring goals. Nate is a lock for me on both sides as he always provides a high floor but also a high ceiling.

DRAFTKINGS

Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $9,000

  • Best spend up on the slate. His team has the highest team total and I have a good feeling he scores his second goal of the season today or at least gets the 5+ shot bonus.

Thatcher Demko (VAN) (G) – $7,200

  • It was so nice seeing the Canucks dominate in a 4-0 win last game with the debut of Bruce Brodreau. The Canucks looked like a different team and I locked Demmer as he was too cheap. His price was raised but he is still very affordable and will look to play him again on DK.

Mika Zibanejad (NYR) (C) – $6,400

  • Price should be higher for the production he has been putting out the last handful of games.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • James van Riemsdyk (PHI) (W) – $3,900

DK

  • David Pastrnak (BOS) (RW) – $8,200
