NHL DFS DraftKings Snipes – Wednesday October 31st, 2018
The post will look a bit different tonight. Hopefully not too spooky for you! With just one game, we will keep it short in order to save time for your candy consumption.
Each post will provide a quick recap of players discussed in previous articles. Success is the clear goal, but it is important to understand our misses as well. See if we can find those trends that work, and areas we can improve.
Below is a recap of Snipes we discussed in the last article.
Sidney Crosby – 1 goal and 1 assist. 7 shots on goal.
Alex Galchenyuk – 1 goal and 1 assist. 2 shots on goal.
Logan Couture – 1 assist and 2 shots on goal. 1 blocked shot.
Dominik Simon – 1 goal and 6 shots on goal. 19:12 time on ice.
Timo Meier – 1 goal and 1 assist. 2 shots on goal and 1 blocked shot.
Tomas Hertl – 1 goal and 4 shots on net.
Clayton Keller – 1 assist and 2 shots on goal.
Jake Guentzel – 4 shots on goal.
Brent Burns – 1 goal and 1 assist. 3 shots on net. 26:12 time on ice.
Anthony DeAngelo – 1 shot on goal. 16:06 time on ice.
Jaroslav Halak – Earned the win with 42 saves and 2 goals against.
Elias Pettersson Canucks ($12,000)
With an emphasis on goals tonight, it should come as no surprise that we start with Pettersson. The kid has done nothing but score since the start of the season. He scored twice last night, which gives him goals in five of his seven games. In the format that is available tonight, he is averaging 16.5 FPPG, which ranks second to Patrick Kane.
Alex DeBrincat Blackhawks ($10,200)
The Cat was brought to this team to score goals. He has cooled off a bit after a scorching start to the season. But he is due for points after being held scoreless in his last two outings. DeBrincat gets to run with the second power play unit. The match up looks nice for him tonight as the Canucks rank 29th against opposing left wingers.
Corey Crawford Blackhawks ($8,500)
I like the idea of inserting a goalie into my roster even though it is not required. Assuming Crow doesn’t give up four goals on the first four shots and get pulled, he should get you points. It feels safer than throwing a dart at a skater that does not accrue much ice time. The Hawks are -135 favorites to win tonight which is why I lean towards Crawford over Markstrom.
Alexandre Fortin Blackhawks ($4,600)
If you are trying to load up the top of your line up, you will need a cheap option to fill the back-end. Fortin could be your guy. We have seen a glimpse of his speed in the nine games since his call up from the minors. He seems to be building confidence at this level and an ability to carry the puck to the net. He only has two goals and an assist on the season, but looks close to breaking out. At this cheap price, Fortin could be a steal, while allowing you to fit a Patrick Kane and/or Elias Pettersson into your line up.
