Core Plays

Roman Josi (NSH) (D) – $7,100

  • Josi continues to be priced at around 7k which is mind blowing. Yes, he hasn’t paid off his price tag struggling in his last 3 games but he can have a monster game against the Sabres tonight. I really like the Predators in this spot with their captain leading the charge.

Jack Eichel (VGK) (C) – $7,000

  • My other core play is Jack Eichel as he is also in an great spot for a monster game. I’ve had success targeting the Kraken all season long. It’s interesting to see how successful the VGK were in their expansion draft while the Kraken were the total opposite. Putting DFS aside, it will be very fun to watch these two expansion draft teams battle it out.

Value Plays

Phil Kessel (ARI) (W) – $4,400

  • Minus his goose egg performance, in his last 5 games, he has been on fire considering his cheap price tag. Kessel grades out as the highest point per dollar player on this slate for FD.

Karel Vejmelka (ARI) (G) – $6,700

  • I’m strongly considering playing #70 from the Arizona Coyotes. Karel has made the most out of his opportunity being the starting goalie for one of the worst teams. That being said, the Ducks are struggling losing 11 straight.

GPP Plays

Nikita Kucherov (TB) (W) – $9,200

  • I am trying my best to fit in Kucherov in my cash game build but it’s a challenge since his price is much higher than DK. That being said, he grades out as an excellent GPP play as his team is projected with the highest team total. Also consider his line mates, Stamkos, Point and even Hedman for a nice stack.

Connor McDavid (EDM) (C) – $10,300

  • McDavid can always break the slate even if he is the highest priced player on the slate. Coming off a monster game against the Kings, he out of anyone can repeat that same performance. I can’t see myself playing Kane or Puljujarvi as they are ice cold. Playing McDavid as an one-off is a viable route for GPP.

Key Injury News

  • Ryan Strome
