James Reimer is a Strong DFS Play and Vasilevskiy is One to Fade

James Reimer

Projected for 19.1 FanDuel pts James Reimer is the #5 ranked goalie. At $7300 he is expected to be the #33 goalie. At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $8.6K. Robin Lehner (12.6 FP), Cam Talbot (17.9 FP), Devan Dubnyk (18.3 FP), Craig Anderson (18.5 FP), and Marc-Andre Fleury (16.1 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Reimer but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 16.2 FPs, a value reached in 1 of 11 games (9%). The combined 'cover percentage' for goalies priced at $4.0K and above is 29%.

James Reimer is underrated on DraftKings with a projected 4.8 DK pts (#5 among goalies). At $7100 he is expected to be the #31 goalie. Using our calculation of expected points per dollar, Reimer is worth $8.1K. Cam Talbot (4.5 FP), Devan Dubnyk (4.6 FP), Craig Anderson (4.6 FP), Marc-Andre Fleury (4 FP), and Martin Jones (4.1 FP) are all projected for fewer points than Reimer but have higher salaries. Based on salary, he is expected to have 4.2 FPs, a value reached in 1 of 11 games (9%). The combined 'cover percentage' for goalie priced at $4.0K and above is 30%.

Carey Price and Torey Krug are also good values on both FanDuel and DraftKings on 11/8.

Andrei Vasilevskiy

Projected for 4.3 DraftKings pts Vasilevskiy is the #11 ranked goalie. He is the #1 highest priced goalie ($8400). Based on 11/8 salaries and projected points per dollar, Vasilevskiy is worth $7.2K. These are 5 better options at lower salaries: Corey Crawford (5.6 FP), Cam Talbot (4.5 FP), Devan Dubnyk (4.6 FP), Carey Price (5.3 FP), and Jaroslav Halak (5 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 4.9 FPs, a value reached in 8 of 15 games (53%). The combined 'cover percentage' for goalie priced at $4.0K and above is 30%.

Vasilevskiy is overrated on FanDuel with a projected 17 FD pts (#11 among goalies). He is the #1 highest priced goalie ($9400). At his projected points, he is worth a salary of $7.7K. Instead of Vasilevskiy consider these better options at lower salaries: Corey Crawford (22.4 FP), Cam Talbot (17.9 FP), Devan Dubnyk (18.3 FP), Carey Price (21.3 FP), and Jaroslav Halak (20 FP). Based on salary, he is expected to have 20.8 FPs, a value reached in 8 of 15 games (53%). The combined 'cover percentage' for goalies priced at $4.0K and above is 29%.

Jeff Skinner and Patrick Kane are also bad values on both FanDuel and DraftKings.
