Cale Makar (COL) (D) – $7,000

  • What a player Makar is while being extremely young. The 23 year old has 71 points this year and leads the league with 22 goals as the top defensemen. In my mind, he should be the Norris Trophy winner but I’m sure many will lean toward Josi. The matchup tonight can’t get any better and I am going to do whatever it takes to get as many Aves as I can, starting with Makar on both sites, making him a lock.

Jack Roslovic (CBJ) (C) – $4,000

  • The only reason Roslovic is priced at 4k is because he isn’t the most consistent player. This isn’t what you look to target in cash games but he has been playing some good hockey as of late. Moving forward, he plays on the top line and top power play unit which makes him hard to fade, especially in this matchup against the Jets (who are on the second half of a B2B). Roslovic is cheap enough where if he has a floor game, it’s not going to kill your lineup but at the same time, can give you a ceiling game.


Cale Makar (COL) (D) – $7,200

  • Lock on both sites.

Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $9,200

  • MacKinnon had an off-game against the Canucks but I expect him to bounce right back in a favorable matchup at home. The Flyers are top 5 in shots allowed which means MacKinnon should hit the shot bonus over here on DK. He is my favorite spend up on this slate.

Mikko Rantanen (COL) (RW) – $7,200

  • Mikko is too cheap over on DK compared to his FD price tag at 8.7k. I know all three of my core plays are top tier plays but it will be worth it. Aves have a chance to dominate and rack up a ton of goals, especially with their power play unit as the Flyers are almost dead last in PK%.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Neal Pionk (WPG) (D) – $4,300
  • Nathan MacKinnon (COL) (C) – $9,900


  • Jakub Voracek (CLS) (LW) – $2,800
