NHL DFS Picks: DraftKings & FanDuel Expert Survey for Monday, November 20

Who is your top overall play (when considering price, matchup, roster construction, etc.) on the board and why?

Moneyball16: Matthew Tkachuk – He had 40 goals+ in each of his last 2 seasons and he is going to have a goal explosion one of these days. He’s shooting the puck as much as ever, but it’s just not going in like it should, with a shooting% 1/3 that of his career number. At home vs an Edmonton team that has allowed a ton of goals, who are starting their 3rd goalie this season, is a good matchup too.

ezellmt: Carter Verhaeghe – His DK price should be much closer to Reinhart’s given their similar roles, but Reinhart is still listed at $1700 more expensive. He has 13 points in his last 7 games. Florida has an implied team total of 3.7 goals, and if they get even close to it, there’s a good chance Verhaeghe finds the scoresheet at least once.

Joda: Carter Verhaeghe – There are plenty of superstars available tonight at the top, so we will stick in the mid-range with Verhaeghe. Carter has hit 3+ SOG in 13 of his last 14 games and draws a great matchup against an Edmonton team that has struggled mightily in net. With Barkov out, Verhaeghe will be back on the top power-play unit.

Who is your favorite contrarian play (when considering price, matchup, projected ownership, etc.) on the board and why?
