FanDuel Fades: December 4

Updated On: October 4, 2018, 4:04 pm ET

Arizona, New Jersey, Florida and Dallas will complete their sets of two games in two nights on Friday night. There are seven games scheduled for tonight. Boston, Philadelphia, Columbus, St. Louis, San Jose and the Islanders will play again on Saturday after their respective games on Friday.

Remember to come back later in the day to check for confirmation on the starting goaltenders and keep an eye on the injured players list.

 

 

Taylor Hall LW (Edmonton) - $9,400

 

Hall hasn't been meeting his value on FanDuel lately for a player with his price point. He has no goals and one assist in his last six outings. The Oilers will be facing a Dallas team that played the night before and the Stars have played down to their competition in the past, but they still racked up 52 shots and posted a 4-2 win over Edmonton back on Oct. 13. Hall was a non-factor in that game and I don't see him being successful on Friday night either.

 

Roberto Luongo G (Florida) - $8,900

 

Luongo has won four straight games, but he won't be in goal for Friday's match versus Columbus. He stopped 32 of 33 shots in a 2-1 victory against Nashville on Thursday and will get the night off. Al Montoya, who has played fairly well this season in limited action, will get the nod instead. He will cost you just $7,200 if you are looking to save money in the crease and feel like rolling the dice.

 

Brian Elliott G (St. Louis) - $7,700

 

Elliott won't break the bank and he plays on a very good team, but I don't like him against the Islanders. He dropped a 3-2 overtime decision to New York back on Oct. 24 and he stopped just 19 shots. Elliott owns a .903 save percentage and a 2.59 goals-against average in nine appearances this season, which also doesn't inspire much confidence.

 

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C (Edmonton) - $7,400

 

Nugent-Hopkins logged nearly 25 minutes of ice time against Boston on Wednesday, but he ended up posting just 0.2 fantasy points. His minus-9 rating in the last five games has also been costly for anyone who has selected him. When that is factored into his lack of production (no goals and three assists in his last nine outings) it makes him a very undesirable target.

 

Alex Pietrangelo D (St. Louis) - $6,400

 

It's odd to see Pietrangelo as the third-most expensive on FanDuel when he has averaged 1.9 fantasy points per game this season. He notched a goal and an assist against Pittsburgh on Nov. 25, but those are his only points over his last 10 games. Pietrangelo has been logging heavy minutes, but the offensive production hasn't been there so far this year.

 

Mikkel Boedker RW (Arizona) - $6,400

 

I like the way Boedker has been playing lately, but he tends to run hot and cold and his success at finding the back of the net isn't quite where it needs to be to justify his price tag. There are also some bargains to be had at right wing on Friday night.
