Welcome to the Monday edition of Draftkings cash preview! We have an interesting 6 game slate tonight. With lots of options.    Let’s focus and get started!

Center

ANZE KOPITAR Los Angeles Kings $6400

Could someone from Draftkings please explain to me why Kopitar is still only $6400?  He has 15 points in his last 10 games, 7 goals. He has averaged 5.3 DK points in those 10 games.  The great thing about this is that his ownership isn’t going through the roof. We will get him at less than 30% owned and his price is a discount.  He is a must play from my point of view tonight.

ERIC STAAL Minnesota Wild $6700

Staal is having an incredible season.  He has 74 points in 78 games this season.  He is a great option tonight against the Oilers that are out of the playoffs.  The Wild are much better at home compared to the road.

 

 BRAYDEN SCHENN St. Louis Blues $5700

I really like picking on the Caps when they are on the road.  Schenn plays on both the Blues top scoring line and on their top power-play unit  Look for him to have a multi-point game tonight against a team that struggles on the road.

 

Wing

NINO NIEDERREITER Minnesota Wild $4600

Niederreiter is a streaky player.  He is on the Wild top line with Staal and Zucker putting him in prime position to get a couple of points tonight.  

JASON ZUCKER Minnesota Wild $6200

With the Wild at home tonight they should have a good game.  We all know that the Oilers problem is keeping the puck out of their net.  The Wild at home score an average of almost half a goal more compared to the road.  

VLADIMIR TARASENKO St. Louis Blues $6800

The Blues are still in the hunt for a playoff spot, surprisingly.  Tarasenko and has been a big reason why. He is their best goal scorer and seems to play well when going up against the league’s other top goal scorers.  

TANNER PEARSON Los Angeles Kings $4000

Hopefully, Pearson will be on the Kings top line again tonight.  We probably won’t know for sure until the pre-game skate because the Kings usually don’t announce anything ever regarding their lineups.  If he is one the Kings top line he is a great value play tonight and has multipoint upside tonight.

JADEN SCHWARTZ St. Louis Blues $5800

Schwartz is a great part of a Blues stack tonight.  I notice that many people haven’t caught on to the Caps struggles on the road this season and don’t pick on them much.  This makes the Blues a great option in both cash and GPPs tonight.

 

Defense

RASMUS RISTOLAINEN Buffalo Sabres $5200

You guys know how I like to pick on the Leafs with defensemen.  Ristolainen is the Sabres best defenseman and is in a good position to have a good night tonight.

 

JACOB TROUBA Winnipeg Jets $5100

Trouba will likely get the first power play assignment tonight for the Jets.  The Jets power play is going up what has been a struggling penalty kill for the Sens lately.  Trouba is in a good position for a point or two tonight.

VINCE DUNN St.  Louis Blues $3300

Dunn is worth the risk in cash games tonight.  He is priced low, he plays on the power play and gets power play points.  So far this season he has 9 power play points. Also, the Blues are hosting the Caps who struggle with goals against on the road this season.

 

Goalie

 

Keep in mind that this article is written before all starting goalies are announced.  Please keep an eye out to make sure that your goalie is going to start.

 

CURTIS MCELHINNEY Toronto Maple Leafs $8300

McElhinney and the Leafs take on the Sabres tonight.  The Leafs are locked in at 3rd in their division and have been locked there for quite a while now.  That hasn’t stopped them from playing very good winning hockey. They have 7 wins in their last 10 games and are very safe bet tonight for another win.

DEVAN DUBNYK Minnesota Wild $8300

Dubnyk and the Wild have the best GAA in the NHL at home allowing 2.33 goals per game.  Dubnyk has incredible stats at home. He has a 2.25 GAA at home and a save percentage of .925.  He is a great option in cash and may even be a little sneaky in GPPs tonight.
