Favorite Goalies to Use for DFS Lineups

Logan Thompson, G, Vegas Golden Knights

Vegas is finally bouncing back from there slump last week and that is of course led by the defense first approach of the team. The matchup tonight is one that could be a shutout to be honest as the Capitals offense is slow and stale scoring just 2.54 goals per game and their xGF is not great either. Goaltenders are also scoring the 8th most points per game in DFS against Washington this season. 

Connor Ingram, G, Arizona Coyotes

I really like this play for two reasons, the first of which is I dig the way the Coyotes are playing hockey right now with 3 straight wins over some big time teams. The other reason is that I think the Blues are so fake this season and its only a matter of time before they collapse. Ingram is 15+ DFS points in 3 straight games as well!

Tristan Jarry, G, Pittsburgh Penguins

While I can't guarantee a goal tonight for the Pens starting man I do see another good outing coming from him. He has allowed 2 goals or fewer in 4 straight starts now and the Flyers allow the most points to goalies in the NHL in DFS as they score just 2.91 goals per game. 

Joseph Woll, G, Toronto Maple Leafs

Alright everyone its time for the “Catch the Falling Knife” play of the day for the goaltending position. The Bruins own the Leafs over the past decade we all know this but they seem to be slowing down and especially on offense. Boston has scored 14 goals over the past 5 games and Woll is coming off of two of his best starts of the season, I believe in the Leafs!


Recommended DFS Skaters

Highest Implied Goal Totals 

Carolina Hurricanes Vs Eric Comrie (3.78)

Colorado Avalanche Vs. John Gibson (3.75)

Pittsburgh Penguins Vs. Carter Hart (3.73)


Favorite Skaters to Use for DFS Lineups

Sidney Crosby, C, Pittsburgh Penguins

We all know how Aaron Rodgers dubbed himself the daddy of the Chicago Bears well in the NHL world Crosby is father to the Flyers in a big way. Crosby has collected 53 goals and 124 point against the Flyers in 83 games in his career and don't be fooled by his age, he is still playing some elite level hockey with 14 goals this season. 

Sebastian Aho, C, Carolina Hurricanes

The Sabres defense is just so bad right now and the Hurricanes have seemed to flip their identity as the offense is carrying the load right now. Aho also has 4 points in the last 3 games and the Sabres allow the 6th most DFS points to centers this season. 

Alex DeBrincat, W, Detroit Red Wings

With Dylan Larkin now back for the Red Wings they should get back to firing up the offense and that means good things for DeBrincat of course. The matchup against Montreal is a good one too as its fully time to slander Jake Allen once again, don't at me Chris Morais!

Clayton Keller, W, Arizona Coyotes

Like I said with Ingram and the goalie section, I dig the Coyotes right now and the Blues are fake. Keller is 11+ DFS points in 3 straight games now and the Blues allow the MOST DFS points to left wingers on the season, pretty easy play for me here. 

Cale Makar, D, Colorado Avalanche

With slates this big I often try not to eat the chalk but Makar has simply been too good recently. He has 5 points over the last 3 games and 9 shots on goal on top of that! The Ducks matchup is an excellent one too as they allow the 5th most DFS points to blueliners this season. 

Thomas Chabot, D, Ottawa Senators

I am honestly fine with any of the big names on the Ottawa blueline tonight but Chabot is the cheapest and plays just as much as anyone right now. He has a good floor of double digit scoring most nights too and the Kraken just aren't locked in as a team right now, should be plenty of chances for points here.
