DFS NHL Optimal Lineups: March 10
Brett Talley provides you with game breakdowns and example lineups for today's NHL DFS main slate.
Below are game breakdowns for each of the four games on tonight’s NHL DFS main slate. Included at the bottom of the post are example lineups for tonight’s slate.
Winnipeg @ Washington
This game has plenty of offensive potential. The Capitals have the highest implied total of the slate per Vegas, and the Jets have the best matchup of the day per my own matchup stat.
With Washington having the highest implied total they’ll be quite chalky, so it makes sense to pay up for Alex Ovechkin in cash games. He’s priced more reasonably on DK, but pricing is softer on FD, which should make it possible to roster him on either site. Tom Wilson plays on the top line with Ovi and has a reasonable price tag on FD if you’re looking for indirect exposure to the Russian. Similarly, Matt Niskanen is priced well on both sites, and his pair plays the most with Ovi’s line at even. Both Wilson and Niskanen play on the second PP unit.
For the Jets, Blake Wheeler is their most productive player...
