NHL DFS Optimal Lineups: April 16
Tom Vecchio provides you with a game by game breakdown and example lineups for today's NHL DFS main slate.
I’m going to give some overall thoughts on each game and where we could see things go tonight in terms of game script.
Tampa Bay Lightning at Columbus Blue Jackets
Things are looking horrible for the Lightning right now being down 0-3 and on the verge of cementing the greatest season that never was. Tampa Bay will be without defender Victor Hedman, which means Ryan McDonagh is on the second power-play. They also moved Nikita Kucherov up to the first forward line with Steven Stamkos with Anthony Cirelli at center. Cirelli is the auto salary saver for the night due to this new role. The fourth forward line of Yanni Gourde, J.T. Miller and Alex Killorn is interesting for GPPs if you want to pay up for another stack from another team.
Columbus is keeping things pretty much the same and I think we can firmly go to them again if there is any chance they come in at lower ownership tonight. The question you do have to ask is, should you load up on Tampa since they are one game...
