Slate Summary

  • There are two elite mid-tier plays on FanDuel that I am locking in on this 8 game slate. Kyle Connor for 5.5k and Kevin Fiala for 5.2k who both play on the top power play unit as well. We should expect both to have big ownership in cash games, especially Connor who also plays on L1
  • Over on DraftKings, spending up for MacKinnon makes the most sense. He had an absurd 14 total shots on net last game and goes into every game with the potential of getting the +5 shot bonus that DK provides.
  • Other couple of players that the field should be heavy on is Kaprizov and Durzi and while these three players aren’t cheap, you can look for salary relief with Harvey-Pinard that gets minute with the top unit on the Habs with Caufield and Suzuki.

These are the top NHL DFS picks for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups for October 17, 2023.
