NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 16)

FANDUEL

Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,700

  • McDavid put on a show last game scoring 25.3 FD points. He hadn’t scored over 20 FD points in his prior 3 games but dominated the Blues. I expect him to dominate the Jets tonight and continue his great form. Lock on both sites in cash games. You can definitely fade in GPP if you think McDavid goes under 20 FD points again.

Jakob Chychrun (ARI) (D) – $4,800

  • Chychrun finally got his first goal of the season last game against the Predators. It’s not pretty but he has a goal and an assist in his last 4 games which is good for his standards this year. He continues to hover around the 25 min mark so he is a great play today again.

Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,800

  • It’s very surprising Petry has yet to crack over double digit FD points this year. He is on the same boat as Chychrun this year as both get plenty of ice time but are falling short when it comes to production. That being said, I love both of them as they play 25+ minutes on the top d-pairing and top power play unit. Great value for cash games.

DRAFTKINGS

Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $9,200

  • Lock on both sites. McDavid will continue to be the chalkiest player on the slate so don’t fade in cash games.

Brendan Gallagher (MON) (RW) – $4,300

  • If you plan on locking 9.2k McDavid, you will need solid value plays and my favorite is Gally at 4.3k projected to play on L1/PP1.
