FanDuel NHL Plays: Sunday

We’ve got a six-game slate for tonight’s NHL contests on FanDuel.  As always, check the NHL Starting Goalies page prior to game time prior to locking in your lineups.

 



Goalies


The two goalies that I like tonight are Petr Mrazek, $8,700 and Tuukka Rask, $8,900. Both of these guys are at home against inferior teams, and both of them have a great defensive team in front of them. With home ice, Detroit can focus on getting Datsyuk's line on against the Monahan line, and the Bergeron line can focus on shutting down the Devils' top options. I expect both teams to give their goalies goal support in this one, and both of them should come away with a win.

 

 

 

Forwards

 

Henrik Zetterberg, $7,000 - Zetterberg has been on fire of late, and he always remains a safe play in cash games at home. He will face weak competition, as Datsyuk is usually saddled with the shutdown role, and Calgary's depth lines are all bad possession wise, and exploitable. With Ramo in net, look for Zetterberg to get on the scoresheet.

 

 

Artemi Panarin, $5,600 - Panarin skates with Kane and he has been almost as good offensively and he is still dirt cheap. He is putting up insane numbers and he faces a slumping Sharks team. Lock him in until he's priced like a high tier guy, regardless of the matchup.

 

 

Nikita Kucherov, $6,400 - Kucherov skating on the top line and top PP against an Ottawa team that is nearly in the bottom of the NHL in terms of scoring chances allowed. Kucherov is an elite winger, and is priced very cheap for this matchup and line he is on.

 

 

Nicklas Backstrom, $6,100 - Backstrom is an elite center priced at 6k. He skates with Ovy and is a point-per-game player. New York is a great team, but Backstrom is criminally underpriced for the upside he brings to the ice every single game.

 

 

Other Options - Rick Nash, Jaromir Jagr, Dylan Larkin

 



Defensemen


Brent Seabrook, $6,000 - Seabrook plays on the top pp and is very trigger happy compared to Keith, as he attempts more shots than Keith does on the PP. Look for him to continue to be the guy to target on this power-play in what is a good matchup.

 

 

Brent Burns, $7,900 - Burns has averaged over five shots per game this year and he continues to put up insane numbers. Chicago is not a bad team, but he is matchup proof at this point until he reaches the 8k range. Keep plugging him in at this production.

 

 

Other Options - Aaron Ekblad, Niklas Kronwall
