NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 24/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $10,300

  • Happy Monday everyone! Let’s start our week right by cashing in NHL DFS. My cover boy to start things off is Nathan MacKinnon who is up against the Chicago Blackhawks. He is the most expensive player but that won’t stop me from playing him today on both sites. The Blackhawks are top 9 in goals against and the Aves project to score over 4 goals.

Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,800

  • Playing MacKinnon will require you to find salary relief plays and we get that in Petry, once again. Petry continues to play at least 20 minutes and provides the value you need in order to play top studs like Nate. Like I mentioned before, if Petry has a floor game, it won’t kill your lineup as he is cheap.
