NHL DFS: Slap Shot - Feb 29th
The DraftKings NHL Live Final is tonight so good luck to someone who isn't a douche winning that contest today. No, seriously. Good luck to most the ppl there. Anyways, that slate is a little different than our main slate tonight which does feature the late west coast games and has a total of Eight (8) games on the slate.
Teams that are on a back to back include ....
- Colorado (at Nashville.. oh dear....)
- Buffalo (at Arizona)
- Pittsburgh (at San Jose) .... oooh, so we have the ole road team traveling to San Jose on a B2B airport theory!
This is a game I feel you must target tonight for some offensive production and is my preferred pivot off the Toronto/Vancouver game.
The Leafs game and the Oilers game are the two 'premiere' games tonight but the Avs/Preds game is the one that to me has 4-3 over all over it. The Avs being on a B2B doesn't bother me with them getting the Preds, who had a little fling with unders for a few games but are trending back to playing shitty hockey again. Hey look, random lines aren't sustainable.... Skog will take advantage and at sub 6k is a lock for me today.
- There are three wingers tonight that are in the high $5k range who are in good spots tonight. Gabriel Landeskog, Filip Forsberg and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.... We've kinda seen where the guys in the 7k+ range of late haven't necessarily been must own plays like they were a few weeks ago and tonight definitely appears to be in that same bucket. I'd stay under 6k on the wingers tonight.
I had a hard time picking the one key defenseman to own tonight and not because there were limited choices, but more because there were so many guys who all looked to be in good spots but not fantastic spots. I really want to use Roman Josi or Ryan Ellis vs Colorado but Josi at $7200 is just so steep for me to really get a good lineup around him. I never pay for Brent Burns and does anyone really trust Tyson Barrie or Shea Weber right now? Chabot gets to face Detroit at home which has been a good proposition for all defenseman considerations this year and we know Chabot will see a TON of ice time so the bonuses likely come into play.
STACKS TO TARGET
Winnipeg vs Edmonton .... Scheifele, Wheeler, Connor & McDavid
Colorado ... MacKinnon, Landeskog, Burakovsky, Makar
Arizona ... Schmaltz, Keller, Ekman-Larsson
