DFS - NHL - DraftKings - Main Slate Lineup - 10/16/19
Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 at 7:00 pm
Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday afternoon!
Let’s take a look at our lineup for out DraftKings NHL “Main Slate” that features 7 games and starts at 7:00pm.
We’re going to be doing more of a GPP lineup tonight!
On the offensive end, we’re going to pay up for both Connor McDavid & Leon Draisaitl of the Edmonton Oilers in their match-up against the Philadelphia Flyers. Philadelphia has done a solid job defensively to start the season as they’ve only allowed 8 goals over their first 4 games, however, as the Flyers are on the 2nd half of a back-to-back and playing in their 3rd consecutive road game, I think the high-powered 1st line of the Oilers have success tonight.
We have value at our 2nd spot with the Blue Jackets Alexander Wennberg who although has never been a big goal scorer, has been seeing major minutes in the early going this season and has had three assists in his last three games. I like Wennberg’s value if he is going to see around 20 minutes of ice time against a Dallas team that is about league average in goals allowed pe game (3.14).
Staying in the Dallas/Columbus match-up, I’m going with some value in the former Anaheim Duck, Corey Perry, who will be making his season debut tonight after missing the beginning of the season due to a foot injury. Perry has had an incredible career, putting up 373 goals/404 assists with the Ducks over his 14-year career and as he looks like he is going to be on the 2nd line and part of the power play, I like his value at just $4,000 tonight.
Rounding out our wing spots will be Pittsburgh’s Sam Lafferty who has seen more playing time due to some Pittsburgh injuries and has looked great recently, picking up 3 goals & 2 assists in his last two games.
We paid up for our defense tonight and going with the top defenders from each squad in the Toronto/Washington match-up with the Maple Leafs Morgan Rielly and the Capitals John Carlson.
In net tonight, we’re going with Anaheim’s John Gibson in his match-up against the Buffalo Sabers.
At our Utility spot, we’re going with Toronto’s Alexander Kerfoot who has some value as the does see some action on the Toronto’s power play and has the good match-up against the Capitals tonight.
