NHL DFS FanDuel Picks

October 13/22

Slate Summary

  • Kevin Hayes will play heavy minutes for his team this year as he will open the season as the L1 center as well as the top power play unit. For 4.5k, he stands out as one of the best value plays.
  • Reilly Smith is once again 4.4k which I don’t get. He was one of my core plays a couple days ago where he put up 17.6 fantasy points. He takes a lot of shots and played 17 minutes. Another outstanding value play in a better match up than his season opener.
  • Although Matthews had a disappointing game yesterday, I will be going right back at him tonight. He logged just under 20 minutes of ice time while putting up 5 shots. I preferred him more over on DK as he can get the 5+ shot bonus in every game. His team is projected to score the second most on this slate and it’s hard to imagine him going pointless again.
  • The Chicago Blackhawks are on the second half of a B2B. I really like the VGK here and will be locking in Logan Thompson for 7.5k. In the season opener, he saved 27 out of 30 shots but did get the victory. He should realistically get another win bonus here against a weak and tired opponent.
