VALUE PICKS
POS Name FanDuel $ DraftKings $
C Sean Couturier $6100 $6200
W Jakub Voracek $7400 $7000
W Claude Giroux $7100 $6700
D Morgan Rielly $4900 $5300
D Nick Leddy $4600 $4300
G Frederik Andersen $8500 $7300
16 points in 11 games is a fine start. More inpressive however are improvements Voracek has made to his 200 foot game… Loading up against the winless Coyotes is the order of the day… If you’ve been following this feature, Rielly’s been a regular selection; until his price reflects his value, he’s a great bargain… I like the Isles tonight, and Leddy in particular… Andersen hasn’t been great, but he’s a solid value going against a non-elite Sharks team tonight.
RISKY PICKS
POS Name FanDuel $ DraftKings $
C Jonathan Drouin $5900 $5600
W Clayton Keller $5700 $5500
W Max Pacioretty $6500 $5700
D Shea Weber $5700 $5800
D Torey Krug $5300 $4400
G Jonathan Quick $9300 $7700
The offense is there put poor defensive play makes him a risky play. He is not yet a NHL center who can be trusted in all zones. Tends to get fustrated when offense stalls… 12 points in 11 games is nice but poor defensive zone judgement and most important the Flyers more experience players will give this uber-prospect little space to work his magic… Despite signs of life Montreal is only averaging two goals per game… Krug’s price is dropping; he’ll probably get to “cheapskate” pick before we’d call him a solid value play… Quick is an expensive play on FanDuel given that he’s going against the tough Blues in St. Louis; his price is more reasonable on DraftKings.
CHEAPSKATE PICKS
POS Name FanDuel $ DraftKings $
C Valtteri Filppula $4300 $4500
W Jordan Weal $3300 $3800
W Wayne Simmonds $5700 $6500
D Calvin de Haan $3800 $3200
D Ben Hutton $3600 $3200
G Brian Elliott $7400 $8200
Loading up against the winless Coyotes is the order of the day… The Flyers second line should be in for a good night… Add these players to compliment your Flyers stack… de Haan is a solid play tonight if you think (as I do) that the Isles will surprise the Golden Knights… Hutton is getting the ice time and getting his shots on goal; the production is bound to come, and his shot-blocking and plus/minus give him value in the interim… The cheapest goalie on the FanDuel board (Elliott) is going against a 0-10-1 team.
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

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.
