NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 15)


Oliver Bjorkstrand (CBJ) (W) – $6,700

  • My favorite team to target today on a 2 game slate is the Blue Jackets. My favorite play is Bjorkstrand who has been playing incredibly well recently. The Blue Jackets are tied for the highest team total and I think the best player to start your cash game lineup today is with Bjorky.

Zach Werenski (CBJ) (D) – $5,000

  • Werenski is way too cheap here compared to his price tag on DK for 6.5k. I still think he is a strong play there but he is my favorite defensemen on FD today.

Victor Hedman (TB) (D) – $6,600

  • After the Blue Jackets, my next team to target is the Tampa Bay Lightning. I love Hedman today on both sites. He does it all playing on the top d-pairing line and top power play unit. He puts up slate breaking numbers and on a 2 game slate, I wouldn’t fade him in cash games.


Oliver Bjorkstrand (CLS) (RW) – $6,700

  • Bjorky has been so solid and in the last 5 games, he has posted double digit DK points in 4 of them. By far my top play as he is up against a weak Detroit Red Wings team. Lock him on both sites as your core piece.

Victor Hedman (TB) (D) – $7,200

  • If Bjorkstrand wasn’t on the slate, Hedman would be my favorite play. He is a bit priced up on DK here but it’s a small slate and I think he is one of the better spend ups. TB is projected to score little over 3 goals and I’m positive Hedman will be apart of at least one and if not more.

Jakub Voracek (CLS) (RW) – $4,200

  • Ex-Philly Jakob Voracek is a strong value play today at 4.4k. Projected to play on L2 as well as the top power play unit, take some shares on Voracek who will save you money.



  • Dylan Larkin (DET) (C) – $6,500
  • Jakub Voracek (CBJ) (W) – $4,400


  • Zach Werenski (CLS) (D) – $6,500
  • Boone Jnner (CLS) (C) – $4,700


  • none
