DFS Picks: November 2, 2017

by | Nov 2, 2017

VALUE PICKS
POS Name FanDuel $ DraftKings $
C Aleksander Barkov, Jr. $7000 $6400
W Vincent Trocheck $5500 $5800
W Jonathan Huberdeau $6800 $6000
D Morgan Rielly $4900 $5000
D Jacob Trouba $4300 $4700
G Tuukka Rask $8100 $7500
Stacking Panthers at home tonight vs. Columbus and newsflash: they will outperform tired Pittsburgh trio tonight (see below)… There are 25 rearguards who cost more (FanDuel) than Morgan Rielly tonight, but there aren’t more than 6-7 who are solid bets to outperform him… Trouba’s a nice value play tonight, he should outperform his price… 
RISKY PICKS
POS Name FanDuel $ DraftKings $
C Sidney Crosby $8900 $7800
W Evgeni Malkin $8100 $7200
W Phil Kessel $8000 $6700
D Kevin Shattenkirk $5800 $5500
D Torey Krug $5300 $4400
G Henrik Lundqvist $8200 $7200
High Risk, High Reward picks due to B2B situation; Penquins not enough depth in the middle to handle B2B’s… Shattenkirk hasn’t earned the Rangers premium his salary seems to carry every night, but there are signs of life…
Krug’s taken one shot on goal in his last five games; yes, it went into the back of the net, but still… The Rangers’ uneven play + the Lightning’s potent offense = high-risk “King.”
CHEAPSKATE PICKS
POS Name FanDuel $ DraftKings $
C JT Brown $3200 $3100
W Josh Leivo $3200 $3200
W Mark Jankowski $3100 $3200
D Zdeno Chara $3700 $3500
D Alex Goligoski $3600 $3200
G James Reimer $7400 $7100
Rare 4th liner Brown is worth a utilty spot tonight… Leivo’s role as 2nd liner intrigues despite B2B… 3rd liner Jankowski clicking with Jagr and Bennett… Chara in the bargain bin? Yes, at this price… Goligoski carries some +/- risk, but his offensive upside makes him a sweet value tonight… Reimer is a bit risky, but also a nice cheapskate play in a home matchup against the Blue Jackets. If you’ve got more money available, Connor Hellebuyck is a safer, still-cheap option.
Fantasy Forward Rankings: 2022-23

Fantasy Forward Rankings: 2022-23

It shouldn’t come as any surprise that Connor McDavid tops our fantasy forward rankings for 2022-23. Only 25 years old, he’s got four 100-point seasons under his belt, and if his production continues at a similar pace for another decade, he will almost certainly go down as one of the NHL’s all-time greatest players.

Fantasy Defense Rankings: 2022-23

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect fantasy defenseman than Cale Makar, who combines elite skating and playmaking skills to consistently deliver point-per-game (or better) production from the blue line. Perhaps most importantly, he plays for an excellent Avalanche team, ensuring that his plus-minus rating should be a help as well.
