10/11 NHL DFS Centers
Jordan Staal (FD $5,800 | DK $4,100) – Staal has three points in his last three games and will be going up against a goalie in Varlamov who had one of the worst starts in his career, dropping his first two starts and holding a shocking GAA of 4.09 and a Save Percentage of .872. Staal will be playing alongside marquee winger Andrei Svechnikov and the two work brilliantly in a stack.
Erik Haula (FD $5,200 | DK $4,700) – Haula is more of a punt option to add a bit of separation in this slate. Like Staal, Haula will also face off against Varlamov and his disappointing numbers. Haula started the season on fire, scoring three goals in his first three games. With almost 20 minutes of ice-time per game on a third line, Haula is definitely an option worth considering.
Honorable Mention: Isac Lundestrom
10/11 NHL DFS Wingers
Andrei Svechnikov (FD $5,400 | DK $5,700) – Svech has been Carolina’s best performer as of late by posting two assists in each of his last THREE games, now thats consistency! Furthermore, his price remains largely unaffecting by his point surge. If he continues this level of production he will bring lots of value to not only himself but his linemates. Svechnikov has been seeing around 16-17 minutes a game and features on the second power-play unit.
Tuevo Teravainen (FD $6,600 | DK $5,900) – Like Svech Teravainen has also been consistently tearing it up with at least one point in every game this season. Teravainen is featured on the top line and plays on the second power play with Svechnikov, usually seeing around 20 minutes of ice-time a game. Teravainen is a little pricier than Svech but definitely holds value in tonight’s slate.HM: Anthony Beauvillier
10/11 NHL DFS Defensemen
Rasmus Dahlin (FD $6,300 | DK $5,900) – Wow. Rasmus Dahlin has been insane and he easily been the powerhouse of Buffalo’s electric offence, in just four games he has posted a goal and six assists! He is the most expensive defenseman on the slate and rightfully so. In Dahlin, you get one of the most stackable defenseman on this small slate and a workhorse who will log in around 20 minutes per game along with time on Buffalo’s top power-play unit.
Dougie Hamilton (FD $5,500 | DK $6,300) – Dougie has three points in his last two games, including two goals. Hamilton is easily my second favorite defenseman on the slate and is easily stackable with both of Carolina’s top lines. As mentioned earlier, he will also be in a position to exploit Varlamov tonight.HM: Devon Toews
10/11 NHL DFS Goalies
Ryan Miller (FD $8,000 | DK $7,300) – The American backstop will get his first start of the season tonight against the Colombus Blue Jackets who have struggled to open the season. His opposing tendy, Korpisalo, is holding a 3.44 GAA and a .851 Save Percentage. The goalie options aren’t spectacular tonight but Miller is the most cost-effective and is in a position to perform coming off his last two preseason starts where he let in no goals.
Petr Mrazek (FD $7,800 | DK $8,000) – No goalie has particularly pleasing stats tonight and it seems like these games could turn into goal fests. At this time, Carolina has the best odds to win and a win bonus could be crucial in a slate such as this. it could pay off just going for the win tonight, however, Miller is still my top choice tonight.
10/11 NHL DFS STACKS
Buffalo Sabres 1 – Unfortunately Daily Fantasy sites have caught on to the tremendous value on this line but they are still the most playable line in todays three-game slate. This line alone has 9 goals in four games, they’re coming hot out of the gate and their goalie on the opposing side of the ice holds a 4.78 GAA and a Save Percentage of .859, even at the beginning of the season, thats abysmal.HM: Carolina Hurricanes 2
10/11 NHL DFS Game StacksBuffalo Sabres vs Florida Panthers – If any game on this small slate has the ability to pop off its this one. Both teams have a “dark horse” quality and possess the scoring touch as Florida took it to the defending Presidents trophy champions in Sunrise, squeezing out the 4-3 win. Carolina has averaged three goals a game while Buffalo has averaged 4.5 goals per game, the firepower is right here.
