Favorite Goalies to Use for DFS Lineups

Logan Thompson, G, Vegas Golden Knights

Vegas at home is a sure thing as you'll get in the NHL this season with a 8-1-1 record thus far. With that in our back pocket they continue to be one of the most defensively consistent teams as well and the Coyotes are hit for miss most nights. I don't see a giant ceiling here for Thompson but the play is a good one. 

Ilya Sorokin, G, New York Islanders

This game should be slow moving between the Islanders and Flyers tonight and Sorokin remains one of the games best netminders. New York doesn't take many chances at allowing breakouts either and the Flyers have been fading since their early season charge. Sorokin just played the Flyers too 3 days ago in a 3-2 win with 34 saves, lets do that again!

Tristan Jarry, G, Pittsburgh Penguins

I told myself I shouldn't do this but every time I write up a DFS playbook for the NHL I need my signature “catch the falling knife” play of the day. We all know the Maple Leafs offense is amazing and its scary to start a goalie against them but I will say this, the Pittsburgh defense has been better allowing just 3 goals in 2 games and they are playing desperate. Jarry also has 3 shutouts this season and if he's on look out, but that isn't always the case. 

Recommended DFS Skaters

Highest Implied Goal Totals 

Vancouver Canucks vs Kaapo Kahkonen (3.8)

New Jersey Devils vs Devon Levi (3.73)

Colorado Avalanche vs Daniel Vladar (3.7)

Favorite Skaters to Use for DFS Lineups

Jack Hughes, C, New Jersey Devils

You can't keep a good player down for too long and with just 1 point in 3 games since returning from injuries he is going to pop off soon. The Sabres allow the perfect chance for that as the defense is shaky and they allow the 9th most DFS points to centers on the season. 

J.T. Miller, C, Vancouver Canucks

There are other players that can go bigger on this team but nobody has the floor that Miller does this season with now 9 games over 11+ DFS points in the last 10 games. He has 30 points on the season and the Sharks are very bad, I'm betting he adds to his total tonight. 

Brock Boeser, W, Vancouver Canucks

Another Canucks player here as the Sharks allow the 2nd most DFS points to right wingers this season! Boeser is having the season many expected in previous years but better late than not at all! High volume of chances and shots on goal, the price under 7k in excellent too at DK. 

Valeri Nichuskin, W, Colorado Avalanche

Avalanche at home means many goals normally and Nichuskin has had his fair share with 9 already this season. He has also added 22 shots on goal in the last 5 games and the Flames are really looking for who they are and its not a good one. Top line play with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen is a huge boost too. 

Alex Pietrangelo, D, Vegas Golden Knights

Many people on the slate tonight will be on Quinn Hughes and Cale Makar and I don't blame them but the prospect of getting Vegas under owned is something to look at. Coyotes allow the 8th most DFS points to blue liners this season and Pietrangelo is on the ice constantly. Fair price for him too tonight, just needs some shots and a point to make it worth while.
