    Anyone have news on Marcus Johansson or Yamamoto?

    No Yamamoto. https://twitter.com/EdmontonJack/status/926486387439812608

    I think that’s the key, there… I decided to mass enter the Hip Check, which only has a $150 top prize, so this is more of a “get as many lineups into the cash zone” type of play for me. If I was going for the 10k prize in the other contest, I would HAVE to differentiate more to try for it. But the Hip check, to me, is more of a “just get into the money” play.

    In that case I see no problem playing Edm1 in 20/20 lineups! It’s normally risky to put all your eggs in one basket (is that an expression in English?) but in that case, with only 4 teams playing, it’s not very risky.

  • dyavid

    who is higher owned tonight josi or subban at $800 cheaper?

  • TimmerRC

    Well in the end I used EDM1 less than expected due to salary constraints… using all 3 meant too often that I was stuck with a bunch of scrubs on the other teams… so prob 80% McDavid, 45-50% Draisaitl, 40% Maroon. GL tonight to the guys max entering for the 10k!

    On any night, no matter how many lineups you do, you only need one good one to make it to the top. On Tuesday, my best lineup was in 256th but I had the same forwards and goalie as Canuckage/ivanage, who finished 3rd. $20 instead of $2,000.

    Of course, if you look at statistics for tonight’s slate, 80% of the time (random number, just guessing) you’ll need Edm1 to make money. Obviously, with 120 lineups, I’m not going to fade that line entirely. I don’t want to lose it all. That being said, I prefer aiming for that 20% of the time where Edm1 has a total of 0 to 9 DK points. It might not happen tonight, but if it does, I’ll be way above the field and I’ll make tons of money (with the other guys mass entering). If Edm1 runs good like it usually does, well I won’t lose everything but I’ll probably lose a lot since a lot of people will have better lineups than mine and I won’t be able to get to the top of the leaderboard, except if I’m super lucky and I have the good Ds, but even then, the prizes will be split up for sure.

    It depends on how you want to play. If you want to cash without necessarily making it to the top of the leaderboard, go with Edm1. 80% of the time you’ll make money. I prefer to take bigger risks and have a shot at that $10K top prize.

    Good insight. I think just by the logic the line will get 13-14 points on avg. Although, they could get 4 points or 25… just depends how the night goes. All it takes is one good night for the keeper to make it happen.

    Preds have sucked lately. Anaheim has played well despite their injuries. Hall returns to Edmonton where I believe he will stick it to the team that traded him. I am fading all Oilers except maybe Klefbom. I like Ducks and Devils.

    Thinking the same thing here except I wil have exposure with 1 player EDM1.

    37 SOG without a goal. He’s due! Since I’m going risky with my forwards, I’ll have tons of him and Josi.

    I took Hayes for NJD. Think he will be the third liner to score. 2 goals in 3 games. Kase as well is hot lately. Theyre playing him more.

    damn i had a lineup i was really happy with but this changes things for me. back to the drawing board

  • Goldenmike40

    in a 2 game slate, do you still do no offense vs goalie? on bigger slates i always go that way but i want to throw in a few lineups tonight.

  • Benn91

    Revenge time for Hall.

  • Blahaaron

    Johansson will not play tonight.

  • Benn91

    Fiala is now on a 3rd line… still in play?

    Everyone is in play tonight! But obviously he was a better play when he was on L1.

    One forward and one D is the most I would take against my goalie, but on some rare nights, stacking against your goalie could work, if he receives tons of shots from your players but only allows 1 or 2 goals and wins.

  • kirby34

    Is Schneider the gpp play? Oilers average the most shots, but are last in goals for.

    Very useful post! Thanks.

    I’m doing two entries tonight in the $6 because I can’t stay up past 10:30 (morning baby duty) and just don’t find 2 game slates enjoyable anyway.

    Good luck to you, though.

  • Benn91

    Gonna stack 1 game tonight on a short slate. Good Luck everyone!

  • sbailey2

    I think so, with that many shots he’s bound to rack up a lot of points, and with Edmonton near the bottom for shooting % I doubt Edmonton will get more than 2 goals, plus if Devils pull out a win, which they should, my top pick is Schneider tonight.

  • TimmerRC

    Good luck tonight, guys!
