Scouting The NHL DFS - Friday, November 18

Good afternoon all, I hope last night was a profitable night for all. I decided to do something different today; I am going to give you a cash lineup I will be using in some of my cash games today. I am on the road today, so I was not able to do a full write-up. You can use the lineup or change it around and make it your own.


Artem Anisimov (Chi): $5,600 @ Calgary

Anisimov has 17 points in 16 games this season and centers the Blackhawks second line. He and his team head to Canada to play a Calgary Flames team that just lost their best player, Johnny Gaudreau to a broken finger. I expect Anisimov to get back on track tonight.

Evgeny Kuznetsov (Was): $5,900 vs Detroit

Kuzy and his Caps continue their homestand tonight taking on a Red Wings team that is primed for a huge letdown. I like Kuznetsov upside in this game as he has Ovechkin as his wing. He should score a goal and get two assists in this game.


Artemi Panarin (Chi): $7,000 @ Calgary

I am matching Breadman with his centerman Anisimov. I fully expect the Hawks to destroy the Flames and this pairing to control the game.

Alex Ovechkin (Was): $8,500 vs Detroit

Ovie ended a four-game scoring drought with a goal in Wednesday’s game against the Penguins. I am pairing him with his centerman in Kuznetsov with the expectation that Ovie returns to his amazing offensive power.

Brandon Pirri (NYR): $4,100 @ Columbus

First, this play will make sense when you see my goalie for tonight. Next, the Rangers have been getting scoring from their third line as of late, and I see more tonight.

Jimmy Vesey (NYR): $4,800 @ Columbus

Why the Rangers moved him to the third line, I'm not sure. I am pairing him with linemate Pirri as it gives us the cap space we will need, and he has huge upside for cash game exposure.


Ryan McDonagh (NYR): $5,000 @ Columbus

Ryan has huge upside for his price and is a defensive defenseman. Yes, he has offensive skills as well. He averages close to two blocked shots a game and two shots. That average all will make hit him value.

Gustav Forsling (Chi): $3,600 @ Calgary

I am using Forsling for cap relief, and the fact he will be on the ice 60% of the time my other Blackhawks players will be.


Carey Price (Mon):  $10,200 @ Carolina

How can you not play Price in cash? He is 10-0-1 this year with two shutouts. He had a bad outing last game, and his price will drive some away. Not me, though, i am all in. I see a 36 save performance and the win. He will give up a goal but will score you close to 30 points.

Always check lines as things can change, as well as goalies. Good luck and let's cash.

I will be able to answer questions today via forum posts.
