Daily Fantasy Hockey Plays for DraftKings and FanDuel May 8/21

Goalies

Cam Talbot

Talbot has found a nice home in Minnesota and he’s having a solid season as he is 18-7-5 to go along with a 2.58 GAA and a .918 save %. The Ducks are ranked 30th in offense and dead last on the PP, and the Wild are massive -275 favorites to win. Lock and load Talbot in all formats this evening. 

 

Mike Smith

The veteran tender has been awesome this season as he has a record of 19-6-2 to go along with a 2.26 GAA and .925 save %. The Canucks are ranked 26th in offense and 26th on the PP and the Oilers are -205 favorites to win so fire up Smith in all formats. 

 

Teams to Target 

 

Minnesota Wild 

The Wild are surging at the right time and they own the ninth-ranked offense while the Ducks own the 23rd ranked defense but backup Ryan Miller is really struggling for the Ducks. 

 

Rookie Kirill Kaprizov has five goals as three assists in his last five games and 37 shots in his last 10. Mats Zuccarello has a goal and three assists in his last four and Ryan Hartman completes the Ducks’ top line. 

 

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Leafs are playing well again and they’re ranked fifth in offense, while the Habs are ranked 17th in defense but they owned a top-10 defense for most of the season and Jake Allen has allowed ten goals in his last two Games. 

 

All-world centre Auston Matthews has 64 points in only 49 games and Mitchell Marner has 66 points in 53 games. Morgan Rielly, John Tavares, and William Nylander complete the top PP unit.

 

One-off Value Plays

 

Anthony Beauvillier 

The young winger is on a five-game point streak where he has five goals and an assist, and a whopping 24 shots. Fire him up on both sites a nice value play. 

 

Erik Karlsson

The veteran point-man has two goals, six shots, and three blocks in his last two games and is too cheap on both sites for his current production. Lock him and load him as a value play this evening.

Goalies

Jordan Binnington

The young tender with a Stanley Cup on his resume has been solid lately as he has won four of his last five games and he allowed only one goal to the Ducks last game. The Ducks are ranked 30th in offense and the Blues are massive favorites to win so fire up Binnington in all formats.

Philipp Grubauer

The veteran German tender has been awesome this year as he is 27-8-1 to go along with a 2.00 GAA and a .921 save %. The Sharks can score goals at times but they are still ranked 24th in offense and the Avs are just too strong of a team. Lock and load Grubauer in all formats with confidence. 

 

Teams to Target 

Colorado Avalanche 

Holy Mackerel, the Avs top line has been on an absolute tear lately and they own the league’s top offense while the Sharks are ranked 29th in defense.

 

Of course it starts with Nathan Mackinnon who has a goal, three assists and a whopping 18 shots in his last two games. That’s simply amazing and Mikko Rantanen has three goals, four assists, and 13 shots in his last three and Gabriel Landeskog completes the top line for the Avs. 

 

Washington Capitals

This game could get ugly as there was a lot of drama two nights ago and Tom Wilson didn’t even get suspended for his unsurprising behaviour. The Rangers have nothing to play for so the Caps could be on their third-ranked powerplay a lot. 

 

Nicklas Backstrom has a goal and three assists in his last three games and John Carlson had an assist, three shots, and three blocks last game. Some of the Caps’ top players are still hurt or sick so we will need to check the lineups later in the day to see who completes the top PP unit. 

 

One-off Value Plays

 

Nick Suzuki

The young centre is becoming a star for the Habs and he is on a six-game point streak where he has four goals and six assists. He is too cheap on both sites for this kind of production so fire him up as a value play.

 

Justin Faulk

The veteran point-man has been a good fit with the Blues and he has two assists, ten shots, and three blocks in his last two games while averaging 26 minutes of ice-time. Lock and load Faulk as a value play this evening. 

Hockey Picks for DraftKings and FanDuel – April 17

Hello hockey fans, we have a six-game main slate today and I am here to share with you my favorite goalies, team stacks and value plays. 

 

Goalies

Petr Mrazek

The Canes are a Stanley Cup contender this season and they have their starting goalie back and healthy. Mrazek is 3-0-1 since coming back and he has allowed only seven goals and has earned a shutout during that span. The Preds are ranked 26th in offense so all things considered, Mrazek is an elite play in all formats. 

Anton Khudobin

The Jackets are projected to score only 1.9 goals this evening and Khudobin is 3-0-2 in his last five while allowing only eight goals. The Stars should win this game fairly easily today so lock and load Khudobin in all formats. 

Teams to Target 

Carolina Hurricanes

The Canes own the 10th-ranked offense and the Preds own the 15th-ranked defense but where things really stand out, is Carolina’s #1-ranked PP vs.Nashville’s #27-ranked PK. 

Vincent Trocheck has been awesome this year as he has 19 goals and 17 assists in only 33 games. Dougie Hamilton has six goals, 28 assists and averages 3.3 shots per game, which is best amongst defensemen and Sebastian Aho, Andrei Svechnikov, and Jordan Staal complete the top PP unit. 

 

Dallas Stars

The Stars are ranked 18th in offense but they have moved up a lot of spots over the last couple of months and the Jackets are ranked 27th in defense and they are simply not good. 

The top line has been one of the best lines in hockey recently and rookie Jason Robertson has four goals and two assists in his last five games. Joe Pavelski has 39 points in 42 games and Roope Hintz completes the potent top line.

One-off Value Plays

 

Mats Zuccarello

The Norwegian winger has been blazing hot in his last two games as he has three goals and five shots and two of those goals were on the PP. The Sharks have a bad defense so fire up the veteran winger in all formats as a cheap value play. 

Neal Pionk

Some people were grumbling about the Jets not picking up a top-four point-man at the trade deadline but I’m hearing that they like what they have in stock already. Pionk has three assists, three shots, and three blocks in his last two games while averaging 22 minutes of ice-time. Lock him and load him in all formats.
