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

Published by Rajonrondough


Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,800

  • On this Saturday, we are filled with a ton of sports including a 9 game NHL slate. First, let’s start off with my favorite play on both sites, Jeff Petry. Besides the fact that he is always very cheap, his minutes continue in the right direction. For example, he played 24 minutes last game and I expect him to hover around that. He will have to be on the ice to try and slow down MacKinnon and the Aves.

Mika Zibanejad (NYR) (C) – $7,200

  • MIKA, MIKA! He has been on absolute fire and should definitely be priced higher than 7.2k.

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (W) – $4,300

  • I will gladly continue to roster Kubalik at this price tag. If you are a game log watcher, you will happily play him as well. He provides the value you need on this slate, along side Petry.


Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,000

  • First, Petry is way too cheap and second, even if he has a floor game of a couple of points, it won’t kill your lineup. I am locking him in on DK.

Semyon Varlamov (NYI) (G) – $7,600

  • I plan on locking in Varlamov and I understand that he faces a very good offensive team in the Maple Leafs. I don’t think it’s as imporant for a goalie to pick up the W on DK than FD. It is a nice bonus but the Leafs shoot a ton on net and Varlamov is still solid.

Alex Ovechkin (WAS) (LW) – $8,500

  • I try my best to play Ovi if he is on the slate, especially for Dk and the 5+ shot bonus. The matchup can’t get any better (Senators) and is my favorite spend up today.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Tom Wilson (WSH) (W) – $5,200


  • Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $9,500
