NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (February 9/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $10,100

  • Connor had a down game last night but I expect him to bounce right back against a weaker team in the Chicago Blackhawks. The matchup is better for him and I will be locking him in my cash game build. He will again be the highest owned player and you don’t want to be the one who faded him when he scores multiple points.

Jakob Chychrun (ARI) (D) – $5,000

  • Chyhrun was always priced at 5.2k but instead, Chychrun is always priced at 5k now. His price should really be up, especially if you are a game log chaser as he has hit double digit fps in his last 3 games. The Arizona Coyotes are one of the worst teams in the league and it’s clear they are rebuilding. Chychrun is one of the few bright spots for this team but I wouldn’t be surprised if they trade him for more assets at the deadline.


Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,500

  • Lock of the day, Connor McGoat.

Patrick Kane (CHI) (RW) – $7,000

  • SHOWTIME! Patty Kane is 1.3k cheaper on DK and I already like him a lot over on FD. His team hasn’t been great this year but Kaner at age 33, continues to produce as he has 42 points in 42 games.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Travis Konecny (PHI) (W) – $4,900
  • Patrick Kane (CHI) (W) – $8,300


  • Bo Horvat (VAN) (C) – $3,600
  • Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (LW) – $2,600
