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 nine-game slate features 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 the Oilers will be playing for the second time in two nights against a tough Tampa Bay team, but the Lightning have been unable to slow down the 21-year-old phenom in the past. He had four goals and one assist in two meetings versus Tampa last season. Hall and the Devils will get a favorable matchup versus a reeling Senators club on Tuesday night. Trying to pair him with Palmieri would be a strong play. The Leafs need to get the offense in gear at home. Tavares and Marner could do that versus Vegas, but the duo of Marchessault and William Karlsson has plenty of upside as well. Staal has some under-the-radar value, as he has heated up of late. He has three goals and three assists in his last four outings.


Defense Rankings:



Burns and Rielly lead the all defensemen this year with five multi-point games apiece. The Sharks blueliner gets the nod over Rielly because he performed well against Minnesota last year with three goals and one assist in three matches. Rielly had two helpers and six shots versus the Golden Knights last campaign. Chabot has kept pace among the league leaders in points among rearguards and sits one point behind Rielly for first overall. Jones has two assists and one goal in his past three games. Fowler and McDonagh have been hot of late.


Goaltender Rankings:



Options are strong in the crease for Tuesday’s slate, assuming the backups don't start, so you could wait to snag a goaltender. Gibson and the injury-plagued Ducks will play against Willie Desjardins’ Kings on Tuesday. It will Desjardins’ coaching debut, which could give them a boost, but Gibson has been excellent this year. Vasilevskiy and Andersen have plenty of upside too, while Lundqvist and Dubnyk could return value as well.
