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

FanDuel

Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $10,000

  • With Auston Matthews out tonight serving his 2-game suspension, we are left with deciding a 1v1 between McDavid and MacKinnon. Ownership will definitely be on McDavid so if you want a contrarian pick, you can go MacKinnon in cash games. I wouldn’t recommend fading McDavid in this prime spot at home against the Red Wings.

Cole Caufield (MON) (W) – $5,300

  • I think the Habs are always slightly underpriced and will have a them on both sites. Starting off with Caufield, he has been sensational and really turned things around in 2022. Projected to play on L1/PP1 with his price the same, I am locking in Cole on FD.

Brendan Gallagher (MON) (W) – $4,100

  • My third and final core play who happens to be another lock is Gallagher. Playing Caufield and Gallagher will give you a positive correlation as they both play on the top line and for 4.1k, he grades out as the best point per dollar play on the slate.

DraftKings

Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,000

  • Locking McGoat on both sites.

Artemi Panarin (NYR) (LW) – $5,200

  • Panarin at 5.2k is one of the best value plays on the slate. After coming off a monster game with 5 points in Dallas, there’s no question he is way too cheap and is a must play for me.

Cash Play Considerations

FD

  • Thatcher Demko (VAN) (G) – $7,500
  • Mike Hoffman (MON) (W) – $4,800

DK

  • Brendan Gallagher (MON) (RW) – $3,000
  • Cole Caufield (MON) (LW) – $4,600
  • Leon Draisaitl (EDM) (C) – $8,200
