Evgeni Maklin (PIT) (C) – $6,900

  • Geno and the Penguins are up against the Columbus Blue Jackets who let in a ton of goals this season. Being priced under 7k, I am all over him as his team is projected with the highest team total. In his last 2 games, he has shot on net 8 times in each of them and should find one in the back of the net tonight.

Kris Letang (PIT) (D) – $6,500

  • Letang is a lock for me today on FD. He grades out as one of the best point per dollar defensemen and gives you a positive correlation with Geno on the top power play unit. Kris also is top 6 in ice time by a defensemen.


Sidney Crosby (PIT) (C) – $8,000

  • Another night of fading McGoat, I feel like the Penguins are in such an elite spot that it will be hard for me to fade them tonight. As always, Sid the Kid continues to be consistent despite being 34 years old. The captain provides such a safe floor as he has hit over double digit points in 21 straight games.

Rickard Rakell (PIT) (RW) – $2,500

  • Rakell will be making his debut tonight for his team projected to play on L2/PP2. He is still a solid player and being on a contender with Sid and Geno will definitely elevate his game even more. For some reason, he is min price on DK against a team who is 2nd in goals allowed.

  • Semyon Varlamov (NYI) (G) – $8,100
