We will also be updating the goaltending matchups at the bottom of the column all season (up to the 7pm start times for most lineups) so check the column and Rotoworld’s daily blurbs for the latest updates.

Ondrej Pavelec G (Winnipeg) - $7,600
The Jets seem to be playing out the string while the Wild are trying to clinch a playoff berth. Pavelec has lost his last two games via a shootout and an overtime loss while giving up eight goals on 59 shots. He is 10-13-4 this season with a 2.80 GAA and a .904 save percentage.
Alex Pietrangelo D (St. Louis) - $6,500
Pietrangelo is having a terrible season with only six goals and 31 points in 67 games, well below his average from previous seasons. It could just be an off-year offensively although has improved to a plus-eight, going plus-14 in his last 15 games. But the points haven’t been there of late as he has a goal and an assist in his last six contests.
Matt Dumba (Minnesota) – $4,200
Dumba has 10 goals and 26 points this season but has only three assists in his last 12 contests. Dumba has only 12 shots on goal in those games so he has not been getting as many chances as before. There are plenty of other options who are better than Dumba at this time.
Gabriel Landeskog RW (Colorado) - $6,700
Landeskog is a solid all-round player who has 20 goals and 51 points this season in 71 games. He missed three games due to a suspension in mid-March and has three goals and five points in his last eight games. Landeskog is capable of a big game but playing against the tough St. Louis Blues with their outstanding defensive play makes Landeskog not the best choice in the world in FanDuel Sunday.
Nino Neiderreiter LW (Minnesota) - $5,100
Neiderreiter has had a nice season with 20 goals and 43 points to go with a plus-10 rating. He has not scored in his last two games and has a goal and two helpers in his last six. Neiderreiter is not a big power play player as he only has two goals and five points with the man-advantage.
Cody Eakin C (Dallas) - $4,400
Eakin was hot for a while as he had five goals and nine points in seven games but he has cooled right down since with no points in his last five contests. The center has 16 goals and 35 points this season but there are better options Sunday at the pivot spot.
