I’m going to give you some fades as these players either should not be in your lineup or tread carefully if you want them on your FanDuel squad. We will also be updating the goaltending matchups at the bottom of t he 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.

Sergei Bobrovsky G (Columbus) - $8,500

Bobrovsky was activated off the injured reserve list but will be the backup tonight as Joonas Korpisalo gets the call between the pipes. Bobrovsky will be a good play on most nights but Saturday won't be one of them.

 

Kari Lehtonen  G (Dallas) - $8,000

Lehtonen went on Friday night and gave up four goals on 35 shots.  Antti Niemi is getting the call against his former Shark teammates and that means Lehtonen will have the best seat in the house for the game. Lehtonen is 13-4 this season but his .909 save percentage leaves a lot to be desired.

 

Dennis Wideman D (Calgary) - $4,900

Wideman had a career year in 2014-15 with 15 goals and 56 points but it has been quite the opposite this season with only two goals and 19 points in 42 games. He has scored both his goals in the last 10 games but has only a goal and two assists in his last seven contests. He is also a minus-seven this season and that is not great.

 

Jordan Eberle RW (Edmonton) - $5,600

The Oilers have shifted their lines around and Eberle now finds himself with Leon Draisaitl and Benoit Pouliot. He has10 goals and 21 points in 32 games this season with a minus-10 rating. He managed three assists two games ago so he is capable but he hasn't had the breakout like in previous years.

 

Jason Pominville RW (Minnesota) - $5,400

Pominville has not picked up a point in his last 11 games and is now seeing second line power play time instead of first unit time. He has five goals and 14 assists and this just could be an off-year for the veteran. His linemates are good in Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise but that doesn't seem to matter of late.

 

Filip Forsberg LW (Nashville) - $7,300

Forsberg has 12 goals and 28 points this season bit has only two goals and an assist with a minus-three rating in his last eight games. He is playing with Mike Ribeiro and Calle Jarnkrok on the second line and seeing first power play time but he has struggled this season.

 

Sean Monahan C (Calgary) - $7,500

Monahan is having an sub-standard season (for him) with only 12 goals and 27 points in 42 games. It has not gone well of late either with only a goal and an assist in his last eight games. He is playing alongside Johnny Gaudreau but apparently he is not taking advantage of it at this time. He is not producing for a center who is ranked second in value tonight.
