Dallas Stars at Columbus Blue Jackets

The Dallas Stars head to Columbus to face the Jackets in a game that could see some fireworks.
Starting with the Dallas side of things, they continue to be a frustrating team to target since separating Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. Seguin is the much better DFS option as indicated by having 30 more shots and three more points this season, but Benn is skating with Jason Spezza and Nichushkin at even strength.
The Stars are tough to target in a sport where stacking is so heavily encouraged.
For me, I am looking to one-off Seguin on this big slate as I don’t love Dallas as a whole, but Seguin is the one guy there who is matchup proof because of his ability to rack up multi point games with close to double digit shots some nights.
John Klingberg is always in play given his usage on the powerplay and his offensive talent, but he is tough to justify paying up for.
On the Blue Jackets side of things, they are a much more “convenient” DFS team.
They put their three best offensive players at their respective positions on the top line and top powerplay, and the results have been great.
