NHL DFS Optimal Lineups: April 3
Tom Vecchio provides you with a game by game breakdown and example lineups for today's NHL DFS main slate.
Ottawa Senators at New York Rangers
The Rangers come into this game with an implied goal total sitting at 3.41, which is very surprising since they are only scoring 1.93 goals per game over the past month. The differential is likely due to the fact they are up against the Senators, who are one of the worst defensive teams in the league, and one we’ve been starting all season. The Rangers are still allowing 3.13 goals per game in the past month and for the prices on the Senators, they are some solid options tonight considering we only have three games on the slate.
This game is very in the middle for me. If this was on a normal eight-game slate, we wouldn’t be going near this one for any fantasy value, but we kinda have to since only three games tonight. It’s not like we don’t want to be targeting the Senators, but the inconsistency for the Rangers right now is tough to roster knowing they are and have been eliminated from the playoffs.
We’ll look to grab a few players...
