NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 23/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Oliver Bjorkstrand (CBJ) (W) – $5,400

  • Our NHL projections has been on fire lately and let’s end the week off right by getting another win. Starting off as always with my favorite play, Oliver Bjorkstrand. Bjorky for 5.4k is one of my favorite plays on FD and 5.6k on DK. I try to attack the Senators as much as I can and all the Blue Jackets pop up in our optimizer today.

Elias Pettersson (VAN) (C) – $4,900

  • Petey has really been a disappointment this season but he is needed more than ever with Bo Horvat out. He continues to get minutes but isn’t producing like the years past. He is cheaper than 5k and I’ll keep playing him, as he is too good of a player to stay in this slump.


Oliver Bjorkstrand (CLS) (RW) – $5,600

  • Strong play on both sites in cash games because of value and price tag

Elias Pettersson (VAN) (C) – $5,100
