NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (Mar 7/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,900

  • Happy Monday everyone! Let’s start off the week by cashing in NHL. Starting off as always with my favorite play, Auston Matthews. We have McDavid and MacKinnon on the slate as well but they have tougher matchups and Matthews is cheaper than both of them. This is an easy play for me on both sites as she should have his usual monster performance game in and game out.

Ryan Pulock (NYI) (D) – $4,200

  • Minus the goose egg he put up 2 games ago vs the Canucks, Pulock has been a very solid player and definitely better than a 4.2k player. He is cheap, plays a lot of minutes and is projected to play as the top defensemen pairing. All sounds like a recipe for success in NHL dfs.


Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $9,200

  • Lock on both sites.

Mikko Rantanen (COL) (RW) – $6,200

  • Mikko should never be below 7k on DK and I understand if you are a game log chaser, you would agree with the pricing here but Mikko is a star caliber player who has upside like his teammate, MacKinnon. I’ll take my chances on a floor game from him if it means I will get a 20-30 point upside, which is very possible today.
