NHL DFS FanDuel & DraftKings Picks

Slate Summary

  • I had a hard time deciding between Tage Thompson and Jeff Skinner as both provide tremendous value despite their production this season. Both are equally my priority targets today in a great matchup. For a mid tier play, they grade out as the best value as they both play on the same top line and get extra minutes on the same PP unit.
  • More value plays in the low to mid tier price range are Montour and Domi. Montour had a disappointing game for me the other night but I’ll continue to play a 4.5k defensemen who plays heavy minutes as a top 2 pairing with PP1 time. On the other hand, Domi has been on a hot streak putting up a point per game in his last 3. It can be largely due to playing with a stud like Patrick Kane and for 4k, I’ll continue to play the value.
  • With all this value, you have to spend up somewhere. Auston Matthews is 9k on FanDuel. Let that sink in. He hasn’t been racking up the points like we are used to seeing in the superstar but he has 6 points in 7 games which isn’t terrible and definitely not a slate breaker. We are getting Matthews at 9k against a struggling Sharks team and the Maple Leafs have a 4 goal implied team total. He is a must play for me.
