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.

Henrik Lundqvist G (NY Rangers) - $8,900

Lundqvist is finally starting to play better and has become the first goalie to have eleven 20 game seasons. The problem with Lundqvist tonight is that Antti Raanta is the starting goalie. There aren't many games today so making a mistake here will really hurt.

 

Keith Yandle D (NY Rangers) - $5,500

There are rampant rumors abound that the Rangers are not interested in re-signing the defenseman and want to trade him. He has been scoreless in his last two games and has only two goals and 23 points in 44 games. He is a third pairing in New York after being a top one in Arizona and likely needs a change of scenery away from t he big lights of New York.

 

Marian Gaborik RW (Los Angeles) - $6,000

The Kings have to be disappointed with the performance this season of Marian Gaborik as the winger has been having a mediocre season. Gaborik has eight goals and 17 points in 43 games and has only one assist in his last five games. He has moved down from the top line to the third unit alongside Trevor Lewis and Vincent Lecavalier.

 

Ondrej Palat LW (Tampa Bay) - $5,700

After a sensational 2014-15, this season has been injury-plagued for Palat. He has three goals and 11 points in 24 games this season with a plus-two rating.  Palat has a goal and three assists in his last nine games, dating back to November 7, but he had one big game this past week with a goal and two helpers, otherwise it has been famine for his fantasy owners.

 

Brandon Pirri LW (Florida) - $5,500

Pirri was quite the goal scorer last season with 22 goals and two assists in 49 games but it has been different this season with only nine goals and 21 points in 44 contests. Pirri is pointless in his last four games and that is the best reason for taking a pass Sunday.

 

Ryan Getzlaf C (Anaheim) - $7,100

Getzlaf is the third highest valued center Sunday and has an assist in four straight games but that is certainly not going to do it for you in FanDuel. He has been in a big slump with only three goals and 27 points in 39 games. He has been made an example of this past week as he was moved down to the third line for half a period, so even coach Bruce Boudreau is trying everything he can to get Getzlaf going offfensively.
