NHL DFS Picks February 9th, 2019

NHL is back and we are going to be looking at some DFS options for tonight’s slate. We have an 11-game slate, so there are plenty of options across the board and we should see plenty of scoring.

Also, always, always check to make sure the goalie you pick is confirmed as the starter. Nothing worse than making a lineup, and the goalie not playing. There are plenty of good sources on twitter, and websites where you can get that information.

Regardless if I’m playing cash or GPPs, I always have some stacks going in my lineups. In hockey, most goals are scored with assists, so we want to target players who are either on the same line, or on the same power play unit, or both. So these stacks will include both forwards and defenders while making sure they see plenty of ice time together.

Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski, Timo Meier

This is the first forward line for the Sharks who are in a great spot tonight since they are up against an Oilers team who is truly a mess this season. This game has an over-under set at 6.5 goals, with the Sharks coming in with a very healthy 3.51 implied goal total, which is one of the highest ones on the slate. We have Couture and Pavelski on the first power-play while Meier is on the second power-play, so you lose a bit of correlation, but you are technically getting exposure to both power-plays, which is never a bad thing. The Oilers come in giving up 11.51 high-danger scoring chances per game, which is eighth worst in the league, giving the Sharks plenty of opportunity to score tonight. I really like the Sharks for both cash games and GPPs, since they should be taking plenty of shots, but also have plenty of upside in what could be a very high-scoring game. If you are rolling out multiple lineups tonight, it could be a good idea to have a few different stacks of the Sharks forward lines and power-plays, since you could soak up all their offense.

Jonathan Huberdeau, Frank Vatrano, Vincent Trocheck

This is the second forward line for the Panthers, who are on the road against the Capitals and come in with an implied goal total set at 2.88. The Capitals look really just OK, right now and I think we want to be a bit different on this slate and go after them. The Capitals come in with the second worst Corsi Against in the league, meaning they are giving up a ton of shots each game and provide a nice floor of points in each game. The Capitals are also third worst in the league when it comes to the number of high-danger scoring chances allowed per game, so they are very vulnerable for several goals to pour in, thus providing a nice ceiling of points for the Panthers. We are getting the best of worlds with a floor and ceiling combo at a very reasonable price point. They should also be solid for any format tonight and make stacking very easy with their prices.

Marc-Andre Fleury, Goalie, Vegas Golden Knights

Fleury and the Golden Knights come in as -165 home favorites versus the Blue Jackets, which should put him in a good spot to come away with the win. He has won each of his last two games, while posting a very impressive 36 saves in his most recent game. Fleury is certainly one of the more expensive options on this slate, but he might be the “safest” option tonight and thus viable in all formats.
