Welcome to the RotoGrinders NHL DFS Slate Summary. In this article, we’ll concentrate on the key elements of DFS success while delivering analysis on the upcoming slate of NHL slate of games for DraftKings and FanDuel. We’ll discuss today’s NHL DFS player projections, player correlations and NHL stacking, injuries to monitor, NHL starting lineups, differentiation tactics using NHL projected ownership, and recommendations on ways to create lineup diversity if entering multiple lineups using LineupHQ.

Today’s Games

Slate Overview

Happy Saturday Grinders! We are getting down to the end of the regular season, but we still have some meaningful hockey to be played before we get to the postseason. Today we have a seven game slate to break down, so let’s not waste any more time. I have some college basketball games to watch!

The first order of business is to discuss the Tampa Bay Lightning. They have the highest implied total on the slate with a 4.25 team total, but the unfortunate part for our purposes are their price tags. They are priced much too low for the matchup they are in. The Lightning get a home matchup against the Canadians, which is about as good as it gets on any slate, but on this slate it’s the best spot on the board. With it only being a seven game slate I expect ownership to be very high even in large field tournaments. I fully expect them to have a strong outing and can only recommend that if you play the primary pieces from Tampa Bay, you try and get different elsewhere with your value pieces. Make sure to be paying attention to ownership in LineupHQ. If you are a cash game player, I would recommend having at least two Lightning and wouldn’t fault you if you wanted to get up to four. Below I want to discuss some skaters and stacks that aren’t Tampa Bay as pivots for large field GPPs.
