NHL DFS Picks: Goalies and Stacks for DraftKings and Fanduel – 01/28 – Win Daily Sports




Welcome to this week’s edition of the Saturday Slapshot.   For a Saturday, we have a nice-sized 9-game slate of NHL DFS. There are some great spots for offense tonight that we’ll want to take advantage of.

Let’s dig in and see if we can make some money.   

NHL DFS Goaltending

Logan Thompson ($7.6K DK/$7.4k FD) vs. New York Islanders – The Islanders’ offense is a mess right now. Over the last 2 weeks, they’ve scored just 15 goals in 8 games. They’re coming off a win last night, but they scored just 2 goals in that one. Until their offense starts clicking again, we’ll want to target goalies against them. The price for Thompson is really nice as it’s in the mid $7k range. That makes him playable in GPP’s tonight.

John Gibson ($7.8k DK/$7.6k FD) vs. Arizona Coyotes –We have a matchup here of 2 teams that have combined for 72 points. For context, the Bruins have 80 points. Neither of these offenses is any good, especially the Coyotes’ offense. Gibson is coming off of one of his best games of the season. A game that saw him stop 41 of 44 shots from the Avalanche. Look for him to continue with the solid performances and get the W tonight vs. a bad Coyotes team.

NHL DFS Stacks

Edmonton 1 (McDavid, Holloway, Hyman) + Nurse vs. Chicago

The Oilers were mostly a huge disappointment the other night in an extremely juicy matchup. While the matchup tonight isn’t as juicy as it was Wednesday, it’s still an extremely enticing matchup vs. a bad Blackhawks team. The Blackhawks are giving up a couple of things that I really look for. Over the last 2 weeks, they’re giving up close to 16 high-danger chances per game and nearly 35 shots per game. That’s a ton of shot volume and a ton of high-danger chances. Goaltending can only get you so far.

My preference in this stack is going to be Hyman and McDavid. Hyman is playing some of the best hockey of his season right now. Over his last 5 games, Hyman has 5 goals and 7 assists for an average of well over 2 points per game. Next up will be McDavid, the best player in the game. He’s also been good, just not as good as Hyman. The 2 should be able to dominate in this cake matchup tonight. Holloway isn’t a must-play in this stack, but he opens up some salary relief as he’s just $3.5k on DK.

Seattle 1 (Donato, Eberle, Burakovsky) + Larsson vs. Columbus

We should see Elvis Merzlikins in the net for Columbus tonight and that my friends should be music to our ears. Elvis is statistically one of the worst goalies in the NHL. Over his last 8 games, he’s given up less than 3 goals just once. During that stretch of play, he’s also given up 6 goals multiple times as well as 5 goals. He’s swiss cheese and we’ll want to target that mess tonight.

While the Seattle offense is typically thought to gauge, I’m going to target this top line for them tonight. I’m mostly interested in Ryan Donato here. He’s only $3k and has been their main goal-scorer. Over his last 5 games, Donato has 4 goals. His price plus production is key to unlocking Edmonton tonight. Of course, we’ll want to pair him with either Eberle or Burakovsky so we get some correlation. My preference here would be Burakovsky as he has slightly more upside.

Pittsburgh 1 (Crosby, Rust, Guentzel) + Letang vs. San Jose

We’ll call this stack the Vecchio special tonight. Pittsburgh, as inconsistent as they’ve been of late, are in a great spot tonight vs. a suspect San Jose Team. A team that will more than likely have a firesale at the deadline. San Jose has been giving up over 4 goals per game over the last couple of weeks. It’s mostly been due to horrendous goaltending as they have just an 87.5 save % over that stretch.

We’ll look to attack San Jose with the top line for Pittsburgh tonight. My main preferences here will be Crosby and Guentzel. Combined, they have 15 points over their last 5 games. With such a great matchup tonight, they should be able to add to their point totals tonight. Rust is also playable here, but he’s not a priority for me. If he fits my builds, I’ll certainly play but will not be forcing him in.

Other Stacks: Ottawa 1, Montreal 2, TB 1 and 2, WPG 1 and 2, Min 1, Buf 1 and 2

NHL DFS Top Value Defenseman

  • Rasmus Ristolainen – $3.1k on DK
  • Owen Power – $3.4k on Dk
  • Jake Sanderson – $3.8k on DK
  • Dylan DeMelo – $3.3k on DK


Can Edmonton fail us again? I’m willing to roll the dice that they don’t in another great matchup tonight. I’ll be prioritizing getting them into my lineups tonight.
