NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 12/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


David Pastrnak (BOS) (W) – $8,100

  • I locked Pasta last game and was my cover boy that slate who got me 41 FD points. He has really turned it on again and looks like his usually self. Small 3 game slate and the Bruins are projected to score a massive 4.5 total goals. Easy pick here and a lock again.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $10,200

  • The Maple Leafs and the Bruins are the only teams to be projected to score 4+ goals tonight. With those stats, I am locking in Matthews along side Pasta. They are expensive but I will make it work in cash games.

Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,700

  • Too make things work, Jeff Petry provides you the salary relief that you need. 3.7k who plays 20+ mins on this slate is exactly what you need in order to make a viable build.


David Pastrnak (BOS) (RW) – $7,400

  • Lock in a very hot Pasta and let him do his magic.

Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,000

  • Lock the best player on the slate with one of the best matchups.

Patrice Bergeron (BOS) (C) – $7,500

  • I really like Bergeron and is my third favorite spend up behind of course, Pasta and Matthews. I don’t have him as a core play on FD but he is a strong cash play considerations. Currently I have him on both sites and I plan on sticking to it.
