NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 17/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Tyson Barrie (EDM) (D) – $4,400

  • With Barrie recently moving up to play on the top D pairing as well as quarterbacking the second power play unit, he becomes my favorite play on both sites for cash games. His price is cheap while getting close to 20 minutes of ice time per game. The Ducks have surprisingly been a good team this year but I think they are overachieving and won’t be able to get the win against McDavid, Leon and Barrie.

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (W) – $4,200

  • Kubalik offers the best point per dollar by a mile as he is the only player to project over 3 on FD. Most have been off the Blackhawks all season but I am one of the few that see value in their players like Kubalik and Kane. Kubalik offers such great value on both sites which is hard to pass up on for cash games.


Tyson Barrie (EDM) (D) – $3,700

  • Must play on both sites.

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (LW) – $2,800

  • Must play on both sites.
