W Anthony Mantha $5300 $5600
D Seth Jones $4900 $4900
D Morgan Rielly $4300 $4500
G Jimmy Howard $8000 $7100
Larkin’s a key 2nd liner with surprising Detroit… Stone’s a 1st liner with hot Ottawa team… Mantha’s a key 2nd liner with surprising Detroit… The Wings have played well, and with only two goalies priced at press time, Howard at home is the better value.

D Justin Faulk $5200 $5300
G Andrei Vasilevskiy $8200 $8000
SJ offense is off to a sluggish start… The word is out at Fan Duel: Panarin is overpriced tonight… Carlson has a tough matchup against the Leafs’ high-powered offense, which could suppressive his stat line… Look for the Oilers to explode out of their slump tonight… With only two goalies priced on FD/DK, Vasilevskiy’s higher price makes him the riskier play in a road matchup with the Wings.
