NHL Plays: Tuesday

DRAFT is back for another season of quick and exciting daily fantasy action. Their DFS platform offers poolies with a chance to participate in a format that most of us have grown very accustomed to over the years. You can compete in a live snake draft in which the participants take a player with each pick. Unlike other DFS games, this gives you the opportunity to use your knowledge to craft a team that no one else will have because the players you select cannot be chosen by your competition.


The draft is quick as you are allotted just 30 seconds per pick and you take five players. Your team is comprised of three forwards, a defenseman and a goalie.


Your strategy can be dictated by the positions being selected ahead of you. For instance, if you are going last and everyone else has a goaltender then you can wait until your last pick to make that selection. Of course, selecting players going up against weaker competition or players who are riding hot streaks are always popular strategies as well.


Editor's Note: If you love Fantasy Football you have to be playing on DRAFT. It's daily fantasy football snake drafts instead of salary caps. All the fun of season long drafts but with no management and they last for just one week. They take minutes to complete and there's even auction drafts! No more setting lineups or constantly worrying about pros, just draft and win! Right now DRAFT is giving Rotoworld readers an exclusive FREE entry into a real money draft when you make your first deposit! Here's the link


Remember, there are new pools available to play in but the players in my rankings will fall off the table as soon as the puck drops in their respective game.


Familiarize yourself with the rues and enjoy! It’s a great game! Tuesday’s 11-game slate features 10-person, eight-person, six-person, four-person and plenty of three-person drafts. There are also head-to-heads and Dream Team formats to participate in.

Forward Rankings:



McDavid and Malkin are the best forwards available for this slate. The Penguins center gets the top spot because he has five multi-point performances during his current seven-game point streak. Boston’s top line has been a bit quiet of late, but they still have plenty of value. Don’t overlook Anaheim on Tuesday night even though the offense hasn’t exactly been firing on all cylinders this year. Philadelphia ranks last in the league in goals against per game (4.18). If you draft Kucherov then you may want to pair him with Steven Stamkos, as they are slated to play together on Tuesday night. The Lightning will be hungry to bounce back after getting thrashed by Arizona on Saturday. Columbus players will also be in demand versus the Detroit Red Wings.


Defense Rankings:



Burns is riding an eight-game point streak, with two goals and 11 assists over that span, going into Tuesday night’s action. Klingberg has one goal and four helpers during a three-game point spree, while Chabot has one goal and four assists over a four-game point streak. Letang didn’t finish Monday’s practice and he is dealing with a nagging injury, but if he plays then he will be a good option. There isn’t much separation between the other defenders available.


Goaltender Rankings:



Vasilevskiy has been superb this season, especially at home where he has a 1.48 goals-against average and .954 save percentage. He had some trouble against New Jersey last year during the regular season, but he was dominant versus the Devils in the playoffs. Bobrovsky has had some problems this campaign, which has led to Joonas Korpisalo starting the last two games. If Bobrovsky gets back in the crease then he should be a solid option versus the low-scoring Red Wings at home. Halak will start for Boston and he has played great when called upon. Devan Dubnyk isn’t listed here because Minnesota will play for the second time in two nights and it’s unclear at this time if he will start both contests.
