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

Published by Rajonrondough


David Pastrnak (BOS) (W) – $8,200

  • Cover boy, Pasta is my favorite play on both sites but preferably on DK as he is way too cheap for 6.8k. He is not a must play on FD but I will be playing him as he seems to have picked up the spark like he had at the beginning of the season.

Mika Zibanejad (NYR) (C) – $7,200

  • My next target is Mika and I will be locking him on FD. This game could have a lot of goals scored by each team and on a small slate like today with 3 games, Mika provides one of the best value.

Pavel Francouz (COL) (G) – $8,200

  • My favorite goalie and I don’t plan on playing anyone else. The Aves are projected to score 4.55 goals against a really bad Seattle Kraken team

Viktor Arvidsson (LA) (W) – $5,600

  • With Mika locked, I am running it back with Arvidsson. He has been the Kings best player this season and has been consistent with his points. 5.6k is a great price for the matchup and game environment.


David Pastrnak (BOS) (RW) – $6,800

  • Simply way too cheap. Lock in Pasta as your core play for DK.

Dustin Brown (LA) (RW) – $2,900

  • I am going with another cheap value play with Dustin Brown at 2.9k. The former captain is on L3 and PP2 now but he still gets around 12-15 minutes of ice time.

Cash Play Considerations


  • John Carlson (WSH) (D) – $6,700
  • Craig Smith (BOS) (W) – $4,400
  • Mark Giordano (SEA) (D) – $5,100


  • Alexandar Georgiev (NYR) (G) – $7,800
  • Adam Fox (NYR) (D) – $5,800
  • Patrice Bergeron (BOS) (C) – $6,900
  • Jacob Trouba (NYR) (D) – $4,400
