1/13 NHL DFS – The Daily Hot Shot



This article focuses on NHL DFS Picks for 1/13 on DraftKings and FanDuel. Both sites have fairly different scoring formats, particularly with the recent changes on DraftKings. We consider tournament tactics, statistics, pricing, and attempt to tackle this highly variable Daily Fantasy format so we can gain an edge on the field at large. BE SURE to double-check both regular and power play lines at both morning skate and before lock as they can drastically change from the time of publication.

Top Expensive Line

Washington Two – Evgeny Kuznetsov, Jakob Vrana, and T.J. Oshie

I do not know if they are really that expensive, as the Washington second line continues to come at a significant discount on DraftKings. They are more of a mid-priced line there. However, on FanDuel two of the three skaters are priced up, so it fits. The Capitals come in a -140 home favorite as of the time of writing and have continued to be productive. This line has eight GF over their last ten games, good for a three-way tie for fourth in the NHL during that period. Jakob Vrana was recently rewarded for his hot streak with a promotion to the first power-play unit. He certainly did not disappoint, as he scored a power-play goal the very first chance he had. Until their prices increase on DraftKings, just continue to roll them out. As for FanDuel, Vrana remains cheap over there so you can consider using him as a one-off, as opposed to using the full line.

The other expensive line in the discussion would be Boston One on the basis of sheer skill and talent. However, Philadelphia has been tough at home, so that game will be no cakewalk for them.

St. Louis Three – Alex Steen, Robert Thomas, Tyler Bozak

This game does not have a very high total but St. Louis is a heavy -215 favorite. It’s rare that I would recommend turning to a third line, but given the small slate, why not step outside the box a little bit. This line has six GF over their last ten games, so they have been surprisingly decent in terms of their production. They also see more ice time than your average third line with about fifteen to sixteen minutes a game per skater. This Ducks team has done little to protect their goaltenders all season, leading to a down year for John Gibson. You don’t have to use this line and can live in the middle instead. I don’t think that you need them fit a line like Washington Two above. However, if you want a tournament line with Boston One or a similarly expensive line, they might be worth a look.
