NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (March 4/22)

Published by Rajonrondough


Kevin Fiala (MIN) (W) – $6,100

  • We have a nice 7 game slate today for us and our NHL projections have been crushing recently so let’s continue our hot streak. It was a very tough decision between Fiala and Panarin as my cover boy but I ended up going with Fiala due to his cheaper price tag. He provides tremendous value on both sites and grades out as a top point per dollar play.

Jack Eichel (VGK) (C) – $6,000

  • Eichel is a must play with all the injuries the VGK have been faced with. On top of this, he is still 6k. I know he isn’t a core play on DK and I didn’t put him as a cash play consideration but for 6,1k, you should play him over there. I currently have him on both sites as he is projected to play on the top line as well as the top power play unit.

Artemi Panarin (NYR) (W) – $7,800

  • The other player I am going to lock is Panarin on both sites. Both teams are projected to score 4 goals and both players should be part of the damage done by their team. Starting Fiala and Panarin is a great starting block for your cash game builds.


Kevin Fiala (MIN) (LW) – $5,200

  • Must play on both sites.

Artemi Panarin (NYR) (LW) – $6,200

  • Must play on both sites.
