NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 10/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Sidney Crosby (PIT) (C) – $8,800

  • Crosby is 8.8k on FD compared to 7k on DK. There are other spend ups around his price on FD that are cash viable but my priority is Sid the Kid today. He has been on fire the last 4 games posting over 22+ fps and will look to make it 5 straight against the Senators.

Jordan Binnington (STL) (G) – $7,800

  • I could never get Binnington right last year. Whenever I picked him, he played poorly and whenever I faded him, he would get a shutout. Today, I hope to change that around as I will gladly take a goalie who is under 8k with a 70% expected win rate.


Sidney Crosby (PIT) (C) – $7,000

  • Way too cheap here on DK. Definitely my favorite play on the slate at 7k for Crosby.

Nikita Kucherov (TB) (RW) – $7,500

  • From an entertainment standpoint, this will be a very exciting game to watch but there isn’t much that I like for DFS. The only player that pops up is Kuch for 7.5k on DK. A little too cheap and is my next favorite spend up after Crosby.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,700

  • I’d consider Crosby and Kuch to be more of a mid-range than a big spend up and Matthews will be the first player I look to target. After plugging in these 3 players, you will be left with $4,300 average remaining per player. Petry is once again a solid salary relief play at 3.1k who can help fill those holes for a comfortable cash build.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Oliver Bjorkstrand (CBJ) (W) – $5,400
  • Ryan O’Reilly (STL) (C) – $5,600


  • Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,100
