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 six-game slate features plenty of three-person drafts, some four- and six-person drafts as well as head-to-heads.

Forward Rankings:

 

 

If the first games for Toronto are any indication then you may want to bet the over for goals scored in the game between the Leafs and the Stars. Toronto has scored 13 goals and allowed 13 goals through the first three games of the season. Loading up on Stars and Leafs will probably be a popular move, but Dallas has been stingy so far this season so the high-scoring affair that some are anticipating may not come to pass. The top lines of the Jets, Avalanche and Predators will be great alternatives. Just keep in mind that Colorado may be without Gabriel Landeskog.

 

Defense Rankings:

 

 

Rielly takes the top spot because of a hot start to the year. He leads all defenders with six points (two goals, four assists) after three games. Karlsson and Burns have had slow starts, but have the potential to explode offensively at any moment. Mark Giordano just missed the cut, but would be a very good option as well.

 

Goaltender Rankings:

 

 

This isn’t a great slate for the marquee goalie names, with the exception of Rinne, who has a decent matchup at home versus Calgary. Bobrovsky and Hellebuyck are coming off rough outings, but have potential to bounce back against Colorado and Los Angeles, respectively. Bishop has had a hot start to the year, but it’s hard to bet on him with Toronto’s offense in town. If you can’t snag Rinne then I would wait to land a goaltender.  If McElhinney gets the nod for Carolina then he has sneaky good value.  He was superb in his season debut for the Hurricanes.
