NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 22)

FANDUEL

Mikko Rantanen (COL) (W) – $8,100

  • From our data, the Colorado Avalanche almost have a 1 goal gap tonight compared to the next highest as they are currently projected 4.43. The next highest team total is 3.58 – Carolina Hurricanes. I am expecting the Aves to score a lot and Rantanen should be the reason why the offense does well. MacKinnon is still out so they will be led by Rantanen who is sometimes overlooked. He is an elite player who can rack up points on any given night. Lock for me and my only core play today.

DRAFTKINGS

Mikko Rantenen (COL) (C) – $8,500

  • Just like FD, I am locking in Mikko Rantenen here on DK. He will only be my core play for today as I am confident that he will produce against a very weak Senators team. Without MacKinnon, the Aves power play is still lethal, especially because they still have Rantenen quarterbacking the top unit. At 8.5k, I love this play and should be in your cash game lineups. I should also mention that he has been on fire as in the last 5 games, he has hit over double digit DK points 4 times and he hit over 20+ DK points in 2 of them.
