FanDuel NHL DFS Picks – November 29th
Yesterday, I didn’t handle the NHL background on Thanksgiving , but I am back here in order to take on this 11-game principal slate after snapping out of a cold run with a nighttime on Wednesday!
I was able to grab a goaltender in Frederik Andersen who pitched a shutout over the Detroit Red Wings, to summarize.
William Nylander and Tyson Barrie delivered nice value in our Maple Leafs heap although Auston Matthews was held moot despite the Leafs blowing from the Red Wings.
Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov combined as a portion of a three-man quad core stack.
Michael Matheson blocked one as well to deliver some worth and fired five shots, and Frank Vatrano enrolled two shots and three cubes . They had been held pointless, but mini-stack got it done in the classes.
It was our best lineup in a while, so let’s make it two in a row on this Friday matinee/evening slate!
C — Eric Staal (MIN) — $6,100 vs. OTT
The Minnesota Wild and Ottawa Senators get together for a rare contest at the Xcel Energy Center tonight and Minnesota and whether the Senators have played with much better baseball of late, their numbers on the street, both uncooked and advanced, are some of the very worst in the NHL. Furthermore, while the Wild have struggled to generate crime on the street, they position a decent 11th using 3.50 goals per match on home ice, which should go well against the Senators and their 3.38 goals against per game on the street. The Sens are likewise a bottom-feeding possession staff on the road while the Wild standing amongst the top few clubs in the league concerning scoring chances and high-danger scoring chances in the home, so let us fire up a cost-efficient three-man Wild stack tonight. Staal enters this person with 17 points over the season round 25 games and seven goals to go along with 20 shots on target. He has notched two goals and four points and has notched eight points this year. The Wild roll electricity and their top two lines plays so we will some vulnerability to their own.
C — Morgan Frost (PHI) — $4,300 vs. DET
Now it’s probably a good idea to simply go around targeting the Red Wings in best and cash lineups and that’s exactly what I shall do tonight after enjoying success on Wednesday night. The Red Wings enter this one wearing the league’s worst total defense with 3.81 goals against per game on the season while their 4.07 goals against per game to the street checks in at 30th. Meanwhile, the Flyers enter this one among the most prominent house groups in the NHL this year since they are greatly out-possessing their opponents at Wells Fargo Center, and while their crime in the home has fallen from late, this can be the best matchup to get things back to the perfect track. After starting the year enter Frost who has left a huge impact in his rookie season injured. Frost has tallied three points and two goals in five matches on the young age, and he’s been so great that he has been elevated by head coach Alain Vigneault into the top line in addition to the best power play unit. That is certainly a valuable spot to be as he has a number of, or even the maximum worth upside with this slate.
W — Zach Parise (MIN) — $6,200 vs. OTT
I really don’t do this often, but I will cast a broad net with my Wild exposure and grab a number of their top two lines in addition to some exposure to their evenly-distributed power performs components. Parise actually skates using Mikko Koivu about the group’s”second line” and high power play unit, nevertheless Koivu brings this kind of low floor to the table compared to Staal and Parise will be the team’s top goal-scorer, so I will use him in this lineup . Entering this home date that was favorable with the Senators, Parise has tallied 13 points over 25 games and 10 goals this year to cooperate with 61 shots on target. He’s tallied a goal and has eight shots in that time with four shots on target in each of his last 3 matches and in five of his last six three shots in each of six of those matches. He has been good on the guy advantage of late as he has notched three power play goals and has six goals at the time. The man is playing at a very higher level at the moment, is being used heavily in excess of 19 minutes per game on a consistent basis and looks much more like the Parise of old, so let us put him into this lineup tonight.
W — Claude Giroux (PHI) — $7,800 vs. DET
Giroux has pinballed in the center ice position to the wing season long, but he goes back into the wing tonight alongside Morgan Front not just on the group’s number one lineup but also on top power play unit. The Flyers rank 10th having a whopping 26.1% mark over the power play on home ice this season while the Red Wings rank 30th with a 68.2% mark on the penalty kill on the street, therefore the Flyers have a opportunity to erupt for offense tonight when the Wings enter any type of penalty trouble in this one. Enter Giroux who is hacing a decent, yet unspectacular year by his own criteria as he’s tallied eight goals and 18 points in 25 games this year to cooperate with a hefty 84 shots on target. The consequent 9.5% shooting percentage remains beneath his 11% mark for his career, although that mark has gradually increased as the year has moved . The interesting thing about Giroux is that he’s shot 9.6% or reduced in five of their last six seasons, so I’m not sure we ought to expect a lot more positive regression in that region. What I do expect is the Flyers’ home offense to get back on the right track in a hurry, and as mentioned, there aren’t any matchups offering chances that are better for this to take place than this one tonight.
W — Travis Konecny (PHI) — $6,500 vs. DET
Perhaps the brightest spot with this Flyers team this season has been Koncecy because he appears to have taken yet another step forward in his all-round play and has been a physical existence and point-producing presence in the group’s top-six and now in their top line. As he’s tallied eight goals and 24 points in 25 games to go along with 56 shots on goal, konecny has been the team’s top scorer to this stage in the season. The resulting 14.3% shooting percentage is a bit over his 12.2% livelihood mark, but he has shot at at least 13.2% in each of the previous two seasons so that I don’t anticipate a lot of regression in his shooting percentage to this stage. He has been dangerous where he’s tallied two goals and nine points on the year. He is actually cooled off a bit but at that moment, however he’s still managed five things with points in just three of his final eight matches. In addition to this team, I’m just searching for Konecny for back on the right track in a home that is favorable matchup tonight.
W — Timo Meier (SJ) — $5,900 vs. LA
It is a rivalry matchup tonight in San Jose as the Sharks take on the Los Angeles Kings. Though the Flyers have themselves a nice house matchup against the league’s second-worst road shield tonight, the Sharks have a gorgeous matchup from the Kings and their league-worst street defense as L.A. lets 4.18 goals per game on the street and have obtained some disastrous road goaltending too in the kind of a .857 Sv percent. Presently, the Sharks’ crime has been one of the more unsatisfactory groups from the NHL this season as they position 21st using 2.77 goals per game on the season and 24th with 2.93 targets per match on ice, but they have steadily improved in this place after a terrible start to the season and should have the ability to get some offense going tonight at an excellent home matchup. Enter Meier who also came from the gate slow this year, however, he has turned it around with six goals and 12 points in 13 November matches after tallying two goals and four points in 13 October competitions. This man shoots the puck a lot of 76 shots in 26 games over the season and is coming out of a 30-goal period, a mark that’s still in reach following a slow start to the year.
D — Matt Dumba (MIN) — $3,800 vs. OTT
Say exactly what you need but I am still on the Matt Dumba train as the dude attracts a lot of cross-category upside to the table if he’s going great. He has not just had a hot start to the season after a season-ending accident that held him to just 32 games a season ago, but he has been okay with three goals and eight points in 25 games this season. He shoots the puck plenty for a defenseman with 57 shots in these 25 games along with the good news is that his present 5.3% shooting percentage is well under his 8.3% mark for his profession. Dumba has also blocked 33 shots in these 25 games also. Dumba may not produce a three-man pile with Staal and Parise considering those two don’t skate together at even strength or over the power play, but Dumba gets the third-most power play minutes every match on the Wild where he’ll form a mini-stack using Staal. He does have five points in eight home games over the season, but with no goals on 17 shots in home I will look for him to become involved in the goal-scoring department in this one tonight.
D — Erik Karlsson (SJ) — $6,800 vs. LA
Completing a mini-stack with Meier at even strength and on the Sharks’ top power play unit will soon likely be Karlsson who brings an abundance of cross-category upside into the dining desk, which is unsurprising considering the cost we’re paying . Entering this one tonight, Karlsson has got three goals and 18 points to go along with 42 shots on goal and the other 40 blocked shots also across his 25 games played this season. He is logging 24:48 of ice time per game to the season and has tallied a goal and six power play points also, however those guy advantage numbers are nicely under that which we are used to seeing from the 29-year-old. The reason why would be the Sharks’ 25th-ranked home power play this year, although the Kings and their 23rd-ranked road penalty kill at 74.4% can cure what ails that the Sharks’ current power play woes. Tonight marks the next period that the Kings and Sharks have fulfilled this week after the Sharks dealt with the Kings an overtime loss in L.A. on Monday, a match in which Karlsson tallied a goal and an assist. I’ll search for Karlsson to continue to make against their opponents, this time on home ice at which the Kings have been vulnerable to the road this year.
G — Carter Hart (PHI) — $7,400 vs. DET
Completing this lineup is Hart who’s a house start against the Red Wings who’ve struggled mightily to put pucks at the net this season of late. Entering this one tonight, the Red Wings have tallied a league-worst 2.19 goals per game this season and also their 2.29 goals per match on the road checks in at 28th. They have scored just 1 goal and have been closed out from back-to-back matches. Best goal-scorer Anthony Mantha was sidelined for a couple of months with a lower-body injury and the Wings have to dent because he was injured in last week’s game in New Jersey. While Hart may not rack up the rescue in this one contemplating the Red Wings have averaged just 21.3 shots per game over their last three matches, his safety level, win upside and shutout upside is off the charts. Consequently, his value upside is off the charts. Hart enters this one with a 2.54 GAA and .900 Svper cent on the season, but what I enjoy most is that his own stout 1.60 GAA and .938 Svpercent in home as well as his or her 2.05 GAA and .921 Svpercent for the month of November. Together with the Flyers listed as massive -270 favorites to win that 1 tonight, I really like the value Hart brings to the table.
