NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Core Plays (November 29)


Mark Scheifele (WPG) (C) – $6,200

  • We have the Winnipeg Jets facing the Arizona Coyotes which means I am loading up on the Jets tonight. I love their pricing on both sites and they have a full goal projection difference than the second highest team. I’m expecting them to score around 4-5 goals and to start off with my favorite play, Mark Scheifele.

Jakob Chychrun (ARI) (D) – $5,200

  • The Jets are still a good offensive team and Chychrun will have to play heavy minutes once again. He continues to be priced at 5.2k which i’ll gladly take in cash games.

Blake Wheeler (WPG) (W) – $5,000

  • There really isn’t a big difference between Scheifele, Wheeler and Ehlers today. I love them all on both sites for cash games. The cheapest out of the 3, he still has potential to rack points up on the top power play unit.

Nikolaj Ehlers (WPG) (W) – $7,000

  • A little bit expensive but I won’t be fading him. Ehlers is really skilled offensively and the Coyotes are just a very bad team who give up a ton of goals. If I could, I would grab a 4th skater from the Jets but as of now, I’m leaning towards playing Helly in net on FD.


Mark Scheifele (WPG) (C) – $6,400

  • FD has Scheifele priced better as he is $200 more on DK but I’m totally fine with it. My favorite player out of my 3 core plays from the Jets but it’s very close. Lock on both sites.

Brendan Gallagher (MON) (RW) – $4,500

  • It’s hard to admit but I think the Vancouver Canucks might be the worst team in the league this year. That’s good news for Gallagher and the Habs as they take on the Canucks tonight. Gally at 4.5k is still cheap and this matchup can’t get any better. A lock for me.

Nikolaj Ehlers (WPG) (RW) – $6,400

  • Price is much more attractive on DK. At 6.4k, Ehlers can easily pay off this price tag playing on L3 surprisingly but PP1 which is the reason why I like this pick.

Blake Wheeler (WPG) (RW) – $4,700

  • Again, I am trying to roster as many Jets players as I can and the best value play would have to be their captain, Wheeler. As of now, I have 5 Jets in my current lineup which is viable in cash games.



  • Sidney Crosby (PIT) (C) – $7,300
  • Jeff Petry (MON) (D) – $3,800


  • Winnipeg Jets players


  • None
