FanDuel Fades: February 26

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.

T.J. Oshie RW (Washington) - $5,600


Washington should bounce back from their loss to Montreal against a tired Minnesota team on Friday night, but Oshie hasn't been a good target for a while now. He has surpassed four points on FanDuel once in the last 10 games and he has contributed three points on the scoresheet during that span.


Evander Kane LW (Buffalo) - $6,700


Kane hasn't earned a point in two games since Ryan O'Reilly got injured. He does have some chemistry with Sam Reinhart, but the duo is still making some adjustments without the benefit of having the team's leading scorer round out the combination. Kane also has two goals in six games versus San Jose in his career, which isn't that inspiring.


Ryan Kesler C (Anaheim) - $6,700


Kesler's five-game point streak came to an end on Wednesday. He has rebounded from a slow start to the season with 21 points in the past 23 games, but he hasn't been lighting up the daily fantasy scene with the exception of his three-point performance against Calgary last Sunday. Kesler is also more expensive than Joe Thornton and Nicklas Backstrom.


Mikko Koivu C (Minnesota) - $5,500


Koivu spent most of Thursday's 3-2 loss to Philadelphia between Charlie Coyle and Jordan Schroeder. Zach Parise won't be in the lineup again Friday because of a upper-body injury, so Koivu doesn't have a lot to work with. He didn't have a shot on goal versus the Flyers and didn't have a point either. Look elsewhere if you are seeking to save some cash at center.


Ryan Suter D (Minnesota) - $4,800


Suter hasn't recorded a point in the last four games. He also hasn't been registering many shots lately, with seven in the past six contests. That includes four in one outing. Suter was limited to 25:48 of ice time on Thursday, but he will probably be back in the 30-range versus Washington while trying to slow down Alex Ovechkin. A minus rating is probably in the cards and an assist won't be enough to hit value if that happens.
