    Todays Post will provide you with some targets for tonights NHL games.

    Here’s a quick preview of the scoring if you haven’t played yet:

    You will be given a draft order, and then make picks in a snake order, you will draft 1 Goalie 1 Defensemen 3 Forwards

    Points: Goal 3 pts, Assist 2 pts, +/- 1pts, Shots .5pts, Goalie Win 3pts, Save .2pts Shutout 2pts, Goals against -1pts.

    There’s different strategy you need to employ when drafting your players, it depends on if your in a head to head or more players, and the number of games on the slate that night.

    Tonight with so few games, I would leave Goalie and Defensemen till last and target those forwards as they will go quick.

    When drafting a Defensemen you can wait till later, as everyone only drafts 1 Defensemen you can wait unless there’s a must have on a bad slate, and that doesn’t apply tonight.

    My Draft order today would be 1-F 2-F 3-G 4-F 5-D

    Top Picks:

    Forwards:
    1.Connor McDavid – last gae had 6 shots, 2 goals and 1 assist. I expect a similar stat line
    2. Patrick Kane – Look for Kane to bounce back after a poor game 1, with only 2 shots on goal.
    3. Johnny Gaudreau – This should be another shootout, last game he had 4 shots, i see him getting points this game
    4. Fllip Forsberg – Look for a strong game with 4-6 shots on goal, and plays on PP unit.

    Defensemen:
    1.D. Hamilton – last game he had 4 shots on goal, look for a similar number
    2. PK Subban – PK has a new home, and hes always looking to score
    3. Mark Giordano – With 3 shots and an assist last game, I look for similar numbers.

    Goalies:
    1. Jeff Zatkoff – filling in for Quick, he should have alot of shots against and be in line for the win
    2. Brian Elliott – Elliott should see a ton of shots, and should bounce back from a bad game

    Is there a good resource to find O/U betting percentages for these games? Its just my hunch, but it seems like that can be useful for DFS hockey.

  • tkofantasy

    What everyones view on smaller slates like this? Do you tend to keep it just to GPP’s? That tends to be my view

  • tkofantasy

    For a Top value play on Fanduel I like Chicago’s R. Panik (W) at $3.3K….. He plays on the top line, and looks like he’s getting time on the powerplay as well.

    How do you call him R.Panik when Dick Panik is so much more fun to type or say?

    Been doing NHL ownership analysis for a while now and have never seen a better night to be contrarian than last night. The top 14 owned players, in the DK Return to Ice Celebration, were owned less within the top 1% than they were owned overall. Only 4 out of the top 41 owned players had a positive differential

    Cash anyone share a link to last night’s $3 beakaway on FD please?

    Small slates like this are tough. If the chalk hits and you don’t have it, you’re toast. If you’re doing multiple lineups. It may be best to stack a teams second or third line in hope they go off.

  • dylanrcc

    Just my third day doing NHL DFS consistently, is there any reason that I see very little people around the web picking Flyers players today.

    Mason should get the start today, I believe I saw last night that he’s dominated the Kings over his last five starts. I know their offense can be hit or miss some days but going up against Zatkoff, a guy a lot of them have experience against should be in their favor.

    I am puzzled by this as well.

    Ghost, Konecny, Provorov, and Mason are four of the best value picks out there.

    Interesting he won it with a 332 stack. Going to make a ton of those tonight lets go! 3 forwards from boston 2 forwards 1 defender from nyr 1 forward 1 defender from tb. I’ll give this winning formula a shot.

  • getlucky4

    Kings are getting bet and the under. If you guys like Philly shouldn’t you play simmonds? Be there or be square.

    I believe not a lot of buzz on philly because at LA and the defensive style LA plays especially at home…plus LA has a rep as s very good defensive team even though we don’t know how they will be this year…

  • tkofantasy

    That was like on Thursday night football last night there was a tribute to Dick Enberg (spelling?) …. after the video one of the announcers said We love Dick lol

    but no quick could be the difference. Struggling with G myself. Think I like Rinne at home but will hawks lose twice to open the season, Maybe Rinne in cash and the Flyers G in gpp with maybe a Zatkoff lu, too.
