NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 12)


Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,900

  • McDavid is up against one of the worst teams in the league this season that is clearly rebuilding once again. Lock the best player on a big slate where you can find solid value plays.

Jakob Chychrun (ARI) (D) – $4,800

  • I will continue to play Chychrun at this price tag. I know he has only 1 point in 13 games but that doesn’t change the fact that he keeps playing 23-25+ minutes. The Arizona Coyotes will need him to play heavy minutes once again to slow down Showtime Patty Kane.

Patrick Kane (CHI) (W) – $8,800

  • If McDavid wasn’t on the slate, Kane would be the cover boy. He is my next favorite player as his team plays the Arizona Coyotes today who lead the league in goals against with 53. The Blackhawks have the highest team total with 4 tonight.

Jonathan Toews (CHI) (C) – $5,000

  • Toews is a great on both sites today as a mid range play. He has recently been promoted to L2 and continues to play on PP2.

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (W) – $5,300

  • I am trying to get as many Chicago Blackhawks as I can today against the Coyotes. I feel like they can score more than 4 goals tonight which I expect the top 6 pairing to do most of the damage.


Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,400

  • Lock once again whenever he is on the slate. He ie expensive but in cash games, he will be 90-100% owned. You can definitely fade him in GPP as he hasn’t put up crazy numbers recently.

Patrick Kane (CHI) (RW) – $7,500

  • Lock for me on DK. Price is way too cheap today against the Coyotes. They give up a ton of goals and are expected to give up 4 against the Blackhawks.

Dominik Kubalik (CHI) (LW) – $4,600

  • McDavid and Kane are expensive so finding some salary relief is a must. I like the value plays from Chicago Blackhawks, especially Kubalik here at 4.6k.



Marc-Andre Fluery (CHI) (G) – $7,400

  • Could easily be a core play today on FD for this price. Flower isn’t the same goalie as he once was but he is slowly starting to pick it up. By far the best goalie option in cash games today.
  • *I have decided to add Marc-Andre Fluery to my cores for FD.*


Jack Campbell (TOR) (G) – $7,900

  • My favorite goalie on DK is Jack Campbell. The Toronto Maple Leafs have a 62% chance to win tonight and their captain John Tavares is trending to suit up against the Calgary Flames.

Jonathan Toews (CHI) (C) – $4,400

  • Solid price and you can pair him up with Dominik Kubalik. I plan to play them on both sites.


  • John Tavares – Probable
