NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 15/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $10,100

  • Welcome back Connor McDavid! After entering COVID health and safety protocols, he is finally able to suit up after 2 weeks. He was able to rejoin his team on Wednesday which will have given him plenty of time to shake off the rust. I am locking in the best player in the league playing against a bottom 3 team in the Senators.

Tyson Barrie (EDM) (D) – $4,900

  • Another player that is coming back from COVID protocols is Tyson Barrie. He is a top 4 pairing but most importantly, he plays on the top PP unit with McDavid. The Sentators take the third most penalties as a team so we should see a lot of McDavid and Barrie tonight on the ice.


Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $8,600

  • Lock on both sites.

Tyson Barrie (EDM) (D) – $4,700

  • Lock in McGoat and also lock in Barrie. I am not worried about them after taking 2 weeks off. They had time to practice for 3 days and should be back to 100%.

  • Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (W) – $4,300


  • Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (RW) – $3,800
  • James Van Riemsdyk (PHI) (LW) – $3,200
