Top Skater

Nathan MacKinnon (COL) - MacKinnon continued to have his way with Dallas in game two, even in a losing effort with a goal, an assist, and eight shots. With his hefty price tag comes his rock-solid floor as the Avs are in an 0-2 hole and need Mack to continue showing up if they're going to have any shot in this series.

Top Value/Overlooked Skater

Tyler Seguin (DAL) - Seguin might not be the offensive threat he once was as far as getting shots on goal but he's still recorded three points and four shots in two games thus far. At $6,600 on DK with MacKinnon, Bergeron, and Point on the slate at the center spot, I have a hard time believing that Seguin will have much ownership. Dallas is playing with a ton of confidence right now and Seguin is the type of player that could drop in with a multi-goal effort out of nowhere and be a sneaky play.

Top Goalie

Jaroslav Halak (BOS) - Same story as yesterday. I feel like Halak has the best upside on the slate and is tending the net for the more "playoff-built" team in this matchup with Tampa. Halak is steady in net and should see plenty of work as far as pucks on net go.

Top Line Stack

Colorado Avalanche - Landeskog, MacKinnon, Rantanen

The three skaters have shown up in the first two games of this series and Colorado is 0-2. I expect this line to continue producing in an effort to get the Avs back into this series but regardless, as we've seen thus far, Colorado doesn't have to win for the line to produce big fantasy numbers.

GOOD LUCK!
