NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 7/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Brady Tkachuk (OTT) (W) – $7,100

  • After a nice short break for the NHL All-Star Game, we are starting off the second half with a 2 game slate. Both games should be an even game but I am looking to target the Maple Leafs and the Senators. Starting out with captain Brady Tkachuk at 7.1k on FD and 6.3k on DK. He is establishing himself as a top two-way player and the Devils aren’t a very good defensive team. He is the best mid-range play on this slate.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $10,500

  • Matthews is clearly the best spend up tonight on both sites and whenever I can get star players like Matthews, McDavid and more, I do it in cash games. On a 2 game slate, there aren’t a lot of value plays but you can definitely find a build today that allows you to comfortably play Matthews.


Brady Tkachuk (OTT) (LW) – $6,300

  • Lock on DK.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,500

  • Lock on DK.
