NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 13/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Nikita Kucherov (TB) (W) – $8,800

  • Kuch is once again my cover boy and last time I locked him in, he scored a hatty racking up 47.7 FD points and 45 DK points. The Canucks are 8-2 with their new coach, Bruce but they did play mostly weaker teams. They just played the Panthers who dominated them by winning 5-2. This game will be a big test for the Canucks but I don’t see their defense slowing down The Russian Rifle.

Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,600

  • Once again, give me a player who keeps consistently getting 20+ mins at 3.6k. I can’t name one on this slate and although he laid a goose egg last game, he still provides the salary relief that you need.


Nikita Kucherov (TB) (RW) – $7,500

  • Lock in Kuch against a very weak defensive team in the Vancouver Canucks.

David Pastrnak (BOS) (RW) – $7,000

  • After a 30 and 35 night, surprisingly Pasta recorded only 4.5 DK points in a 5-1 game against the Habs. I doubt he does that again and still, 7k is under priced in my opinion. I’ll ride the hot hand and hope he gets another 30+ night.

Artemi Panarin (NYR) (LW) – $5,700

  • The Breadman has struggled lately which is the reason why his price has dropped from mid 7k to almost mid 5k. I am jumping all over this price and will gladly play this matchup against the Sharks.
