Auston Matthews (TOR) (C) – $8,400
- Surprisingly my two favorite plays are players who are under performing this year. One of them is a superstar, Auston Matthews who happens to struggle to find the back of the net or generate points. Usually on a slate without McDavid, Auston is the most expensive but that isn’t the case today. He only has 2 points in his first 6 games this year. It’s really hard to believe he won’t be able to change that and he will be high owned in cash games. I wouldn’t fade him in cash games but I wouldn’t argue if you did in GPPs. He has all the talent in the world to put up points and he eventually will figure it out so let’s make that happen tonight Auston! Lock for me on both sites.
Jakob Chychrun (ARI) (D) – $4,900
- Someone who has been even more disappointing than Auston is Chychrun. I know that’s not what you want to hear from your core plays but that’s just how the season is going for both these players. Although Chychrun is struggling, as a DFS player, I only care about today and not what happened last game or what could happen the next game. He plays such heavy minutes that it’s very difficult to fade in cash games and I’m positive with all these minutes, he is bound to get a lucky goal and pick up some assists. His price tag is way down and I think it’s a great mid range play. Lock for me on both sites.
