NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (December 9)

FANDUEL

Ryan O’Reilly (STL) (C) – $5,900

  • We have a slate with McDavid and Matthews but surprisingly, neither of them are my favorite play. We have O’Reilly against the Red Wings for 5.9k on FD and 4.6k on DK. He has been consistently playing 22+ minutes and is one of the best plays in cash games.

Marc-Andre Fluery (CHI) (G) – $7,100

  • Flower is too cheap for the win % he is projected with today at 56% and still trending in the right direction. My favorite goalie by far on FD.

Jonathan Toews (CHI) (C) – $4,300

  • With the third highest team total on the slate, captain Jonathan Toews is 4.3k with a L1/PP1 role. Simply underpriced and a great salary relief play.

Patrick Kane (CHI) (W) – $8,100

  • Kaner is the spend up I want to play for sure as McDavid is priced up at 10.5k. I still have McDavid in my current build but isn’t a core play today. As I mentioned above, the Blackhawks are in a great spot to grab a win tonight.

DRAFTKINGS

Ryan O’Reilly (STL) (C) – $4,600

  • 4.6k is a bargin for O’Reilly. Build around the former Stanley Cup Champion today.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,300

  • I prefer Matthews here on DK for 9.3k. It’s harder to play him at 10.3k on FD but for 1k cheaper, he is definitely in play today.

Patrick Kane (CHI) (RW) – $7,800

  • Really like Kaner today in a great matchup. 7.8k is a great price just like on FD. Load him up on both sites.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Sebastian Aho (NYI) (D) – $3,800

DK

  • Vladimir Tarasenko (STL) (RW) – $5,400
