NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (January 6/22)

FANDUEL

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (W) – $4,600

  • My cover boy today and favorite play on both sites is Dominik Kubalik from the Chicago Blackhawks. I know he had a very disappointing game last time but he is now underpriced on FD.

David Pastrnak (BOS) (W) – $7,500

  • After a hot start, Pasta has cooled down hence his price being around the 7k range. With the value given by Kubalik, I really like Pasta at 7.5k today against the Wild.

Shea Theodore (VGK) (D) – $6,100

  • The safest defensemen that offers the highest floor. Even though I don’t have him as my core play on DK, I would also recommend playing him over there as well.

DRAFTKINGS

Nikita Kucherov (TB) (RW) – $6,000

  • I will gladly play a 6k Kucherov any day of the week. He has the upside to break a slate and has been cleared to play today.

Juuse Saros (NSH) (G) – $7,700

  • I am going to be playing Saros as my goalie for cash games. 7.7k playing against the Kings is too cheap and if you pair him up with Kucherov, it gives you flexibility

Dominik Kubalik (RW) – $3,700

  • On DraftKings, Kubalik has always been cheap and provides the best value once again. I’d say he is the best salary relief play for both cash and GPP contests.

CASH PLAY CONSIDERATIONS

FD

  • Patrick Kane (CHI) (W) – $7,700

DK

  • Shea Theodore (VGK) (D) – $5,700

KEY INJURY NEWS

  • None
