Scouting The NHL DFS - Friday, March 17

Go Scouting The NHL DFS with Fantasy Hockey Award Winning Writer Mr. Pucks!

We have a short slate this evening of only four game. The Chalk will stand out this evening and with a four game slate, I suggest staying away from multi entry games. Focus instead on cash games, single entry or three entry max GPP's to give yourself a bit of an edge.

Mr. Pucks Profound Three

Sidney Crosby (PIT) - Center- ($9000 FD / $8400 DK)

With the regular season winding down, Crosby is trying to hit 100 points in the year. Needing only 24 more, he will start his push now. With a home game against the Devils, I fully expect Crosby to stand out. I can see a goal and two assists with five shots on net.

Rickard Rakell (ANA) -Wing- ($5400 FD / $6400 DK)

Rakell is a player that is hard to pinpoint. He has scored a goal in his last three straight games and I expect him to make it four. He gets a Sabres team that is not that great on the road. He should get us a goal and an assist and help our lineups excel.

Chris Kreider (NYR) - Center - ($6000 FD / $5500 DK)

Kreider and his Rangers host a Panthers team that has found some success as of late. The Rangers are in the thick of the playoff race and see them being dominate against the Panthers. I see Kreider scoring two goals while taking four shots on net.

Mr. Pucks Sleeper Play

Curtis McKenzie (DAL) - Wing - ($3000 FD / $3200 DK)

McKenzie is a gritty young player that does not see a lot of ice time. With a depleted Stars team, someone will need to step up and score. McKenzie might be that player tonight. This is more a punt/cap saver play but he has an opportunity to score.

Teams To Target

Pittsburgh Penguins - I am targeting the top line Centered by Crosby. Malkin line will also be a good play. Cole or Schultz on defense.

Anaheim Ducks - Rakel-Getzlaf-Eaves make up the top line and will be a good target. Also consider the second line centered by Kesler. Love Fowler and Lindholm on defense.

Also Consider: Dal 1, NYR 1 & 2
