As is the case with every FanDuel Fades, we are going to look at some players who you should think twice about placing in your lineup or who you should avoid using entirely.

Sean Monahan C (Calgary) - $7,600
Monahan had a big game Monday despite not having Johnny Gaudreau on his wing. He produced a goal and two assists against Arizona, but the Flames have a much tougher match-up on Wednesday at Anaheim. He has picked up three helpers in four games with the Ducks as the opposition this year, but he has been held scoreless in three of those outings.
John Carlson D (Washington) - $5,200
Carlson has picked up a goal and an assist in his last three games, but he has been fairly quiet in terms FanDuel points over the past eight contests. Additionally, he has never been very productive against Philadelphia in his career with no goals, four assists and a minus-11 rating in 24 appearances. Carlson hasn't hit the scoresheet in three matches versus the Flyers this season.
Braden Holtby G (Washington) - $9,500
It wouldn't be a surprise if the Capitals let up a little after claiming the Presidents' Trophy in their last game, but this is a match-up that could go either way. Washington and Philadelphia have recorded six wins apiece in their last 10 games. Holtby has a 2-0-1 record versus the Flyers this year, but he has posted a 2.66 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage. He is the most expensive netminder on Wednesday and this is a night when you can definitely go cheaper at the position.
Jakub Voracek RW (Philadelphia) - $6,700
Voracek has netted just 10 goals in 66 games this season. That's a disappointing total for a player who has surpassed the 20-goal mark in each of his previous three campaigns. Voracek doesn't have a goal in six straight contests since returning from a lower-body injury and he has contributed three assists in his last eight appearances. There are just three right wingers more expensive than Voracek on Wednesday and he isn't producing reliably right now.
Sami Vatanen D (Anaheim) - $5,000
Vatanen returned from an eight-game absence on Monday. I would wait a couple more games before selecting him following his head injury. He didn't have a shot on goal despite 20:49 of ice time versus Edmonton. Vatanen hasn't potted a goal since Feb. 24 against Buffalo and he has gone scoreless in four of his six appearances this March.
