FanDuel Fades: January 22

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

As is the case with every FanDuel Fades, we are going to look at some players who you should think twice about placing in your lineup or who you should avoid using entirely. Remember to check back on this page later in the day for confirmations on starting goalies and keep an eye on Rotoworld's daily blurbs for all your fantasy hockey needs.

The Ducks visit Washington at 5:00 p.m. EST (Update: That game has been postponed) and Carolina hosts the Rangers, but those two games aren't included in FanDuel's 7:00 p.m. contests so they won't be looked at here.

 

Gabriel Landeskog LW (Colorado) - $6,100

 

Only three left wingers are more expensive than Landeskog on Friday night and he hasn't been providing daily fantasy pickers with much bang for the buck lately. He has failed to post one fantasy point in two of his last three outings and he has topped out at three points in three of his past seven. The selections aren't great on Friday for the left side, but Landeskog hasn't been meeting his value.

 

Teuvo Teravainen RW (Chicago) - $5,000

 

Teravainen is overpriced when you consider he costs more than Jaromir Jagr, Troy Brouwer, Mark Stone and Reilly Smith. Teravainen is skating on Chicago's third line and he has no goals, with two assists, in his past eight matches.

 

Frans Nielsen C (New York Islanders) - $6,000

 

Nielsen hasn't scored a goal in seven games and he has one assist in his past five. Surprisingly, he is more expensive than Jack Eichel, Carl Soderberg, Aleksander Barkov, Paul Stastny and Ryan O'Reilly, who are all having more productive seasons.

 

Nick Bjugstad C (Florida) - $5,000

 

Bjugstad is still trying to get himself back on track after he missed 15 games due to migraines. He has scored one goal in eight contests since his return and he has been skating on the third line because Vincent Trocheck took over the second-line center position.

 

Aaron Ekblad D (Florida) - $4,800

 

Ekblad is expected to return to the lineup on Friday. He has sat out the last four games due to a concussion. The 19-year-old blueliner may need a couple of matches to get back up to game speed.

 

Craig Anderson G (Ottawa) - $8,300

 

Anderson hasn't been confirmed as the starter yet, but he was pulled Thursday night against New Jersey after he surrendered four goals on seven shots. He has give up three goals or more in each of his last four appearances and the highest his save percentage has reached over that span is .914.
