Well, we had some luck with our games yesterday. Pickard in goal hurt me as he didn't get the win. Today we have a short slate, with the main games starting at 3 pm. Let us jump into this slate and find some winning picks. Today's write up is DraftKings only, due to the odd way FanDuel is doing their contests today.
Connor McDavid - Center - ($8700 DK) - McDavid and his Oilers face the Coyotes at home tonight. McDavid averages 4.6 fantasy points per game. In his last five games, he has five goals and four assists. He should easily add to that total today with a goal and an assist. I will have him in both cash and gpp.
Jimmy Vesey- Wing - ( $5200 DK) - Vesey was a big name before the season started and the Rangers landed him. He started off slow, but pulled it together and started getting the speed of the NHL. I see him scoring a goal tonight with four shots on net. Use him and be happy with his production.
Aleksander Barkov - Center - ($6000 DK) - Barkov has been silent this season to the tune only two goals. He will start turning the corner and today is that day. He will have two goals and two assists with five shots on goal. Use him in both cash and gpp.
Cappy's Super Sleeper
Jesse Puljujarvi - Wing - ($5000 DK) - The Oilers have recently moved Puljujarvi to the top line with McDavid. It has paid off, and you will want him in your lineup.
Games To Target
I will be listing the teams you want to target in this slate with a little info on each team.
New York Rangers - I like the Rangers top two lines and 3rd line for gpp.
Edmonton Oilers - Both the top lines are in play, with a flier on their 3rd in gpp. Love Sekra on Defense.
Florida Panthers - I love the Panthers tonight and think they will score the most goals this evening. The top three lines are targets with Yandle on Defense.
**As always check before puck drop to see starting goalies, as things change**
I will list a few goalies and if you want them in cash, gpp, or both.
Cam Talbot - GPP and Cash
Chad Johnson - GPP
James Reimer - GPP
Henrik Lundqvist - Cash and GPP
