FanDuel NHL DFS Picks – October 19th
The FanDuel NHL DFS Picks of last night were exceptional and did some harm in GPPs.
We saw a few high possession with our three-man Capitals stack, however it wasnt worth the fade because the trio of all both Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin and John Carlson united for five assists along with 11 shots in the day to go along with a few power play assists as well.
The rest of our lineup saw reduced ownership and it paid off. Our three-man Blackhawks stack acquired a power play goal by Alex DeBrincat who was only 6.8percent possessed. DeBrincat notched an assist while a power play helper was donated by Erik Gustafsson. Eventually, Jonathan Toews ripped the overtime winner at only 4.1% possessed while in addition, he fired three shots on target and blocked you as well. Production at low possession.
Our lost-cost one-off wingers gave or lineup a shot in the arm. Brett Connolly scored to go along with four shots on target. Alex Chiasson notched an assist, three shots on target and a blocked shot at just 2.6% owned.
Finallyour goaltender Robin Lehner had a huge night, turning 37 of 39 Blue Jackets shots aside and picked up the win on Toews overtime winner.
It was possibly our best lineup of the season for this point and Ill look to keep hot on the slate of tonight!
C — Derek Stepan (ARI) — $5,600 vs. OTT
The Arizona Coyotes are popular at this time and they have gotten their crime going after tallying nine goals over their past two games. After a quiet start to his year, Derek Stepan was a portion of their 5-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday because he notched a pair of assistance — both to the power play — along with three shots on target. The two helpers declared his first points since scoring a goal at the clubs back on October 3rd, therefore it was a long time coming to the veteran. In a season, we all know what to expect from the Stepan. Id anticipate in which was finished for each of the five seasons Stepan to get back into the mid-50s after notching just 35 points within an injury-shortened 72-game season this past year. While we must anticipate around 15-20 targets for the centre, he listed between 53 and 57 factors for five consecutive seasons. Stepan is the teams top center at both strength and on the top power play unit since he gets set to have a Senators team thats tied for 24th with 3.50 goals against per game this year having a 16th-ranked penalty kill that sits at 80% over this season. I like Stepan hitting the scoresheet again tonights upside.
C — Tyler Johnson (TB) — $4,900 vs. COL
The Lighting and Avalanche get together tonight for a battle of the titans in Tampa Bay, as well as the Lightning may have the upper hand in this one because theyll face an Avs group thats playing their second match in as many nights tonight after a hard-fought 5-4 overtime win in Florida last night. The Avs have mainly been great on the rear end this season, last night, nevertheless they did slide a bit against a good Florida Panthers crime and this is a against the energetic crime in the NHL. Furthermore, the Lighting will get goaltender Pavel Francouz after Philipp Grubauer notched the win last night. Francouz was good this year, however that came from a struggling Coyotes crime at the time. This is a whole creature against these Lightning. Enter Johnson whos off to a solid start this season with two goals and four points in seven games to go along with 14 shots on target. Johnson is the groups second line centre at even power while he also centers the next power play unit. Tampa Bay has averaged 3.71 goals each game in the early going with a power play which is clicked at a healthful 26.3%, and so Ill look for them to secure more crime going tonight against the Avs.
W — Phil Kessel (ARI) — $7,200 vs. OTT
We have seen Kessel get sexy before and go on several epic goal-scoring streaks which is the reason why I am loving him. Kessel got off the schnide with two objectives after going five matches without a wish to start his own Coyotes tenure with. Ahead of this matchup, Kessel had just two assists in five games, so I am searching for him to remain hot in this 1 tonight. Following their electricity play a pair of targets in Thursday, the Coyotes power play is presently clicking in a whopping 29.4% for the period, good for seventh in the NHL. Let us recall that Kessel has been one of the power play actors in the NHL during the previous couple of seasons after submitting 42 power play things in the year followed by 36 guy benefit points last season. He has bagged 12 power play mark. Hes recorded three of the four points to this point and fitures to be a weapon to the power play alongside a genuine good center in Stepan. Let us look for Kessel to continue to fire a lot of pucks on target and return to the shoresheet in this one.
W — Clayton Keller (ARI) — $6,000 vs. OTT
Completing our three-man Coyotes stack is Keller wholl emphasise both Kessel and Stepan around the top line of the team as well as the top power play unit tonight. After submitting 23 goals and 65 points as a rookie in the 2017-18 season, Keller dropped to just 14 goals and 47 points in his sophomore campaign last year. Ive got the utmost of confidence that Keller will crush those 47 points this season playing on the top line alongside a participant in Kessel whos a year around a point-per-game participant in addition to a talented top power play unit. Hes off to a nice start with five points in six matches, however all those points have come in help form since he still searches for his first goal of the year despite putting 15 pucks on goal to this stage. We do know that he likes to take the puck as hes submitted at least 200 shots on target in each of the first two seasons in the NHL, so the very first aim of the season is not far away, at all. Much like Kessel, Keller loved a night on Thursday. The matchup is really a nice one and I believe that this Coyotes line gets the upside to do some significant damage in this 1 tonight.
W — Yanni Gourde (TB) — $4,700 vs. COL
Continuing our Lightning heap is Gourde who will line up along with Johnson on the teams second line as well as the next power play unit. Its intriguing because Gourde watched a production drop that is similar as Keller did last season. After breaking out with 25 goals and 64 points in the 2017-18 season, Gourde dropped to 22 goals and 48 points last season, representing a almost-identical points fall to Keller. Maybe the real Gourde is somewhere in between the two totals, but nonetheless I enjoy the worth were getting together with him at the cost contrary to an Avalanche team which could be rather vulnerable with their backup goaltender in aim along with having played only 24 hours earlier. Through seven games this year, Gourde has to find the back of the internet with zero goals but three assists at the moment. What we do know about him is that we are not going to have a bunch of shots on goal as he averaged just 1.6 shots per game over the past two seasons, however, he has also kept a high shooting percentage at the time with a mark of 17.4% for his livelihood. It wont be long before Gourde discovers tonight and twine seems to be an matchup for it to happen.
W — David Pastrnak (BOS) — $8,600 vs. TOR
There is not anyone sexier in the NHL right now as the Bruins get set to have the rival Maple Leafs tonight in Toronto compared to Pastrnak that has scored six goals and an assist. he saves his work for these Maple Leafs, Even though Pastrnak is an elite player that has terrorized clubs previously. At 15 regular season matchups with Toronto, Pastrnak has tallied 11 goals and 19 points to go along with 59 shots on target, or 3.9 shots per game. He notched another 2 goals and six points in seven playoff games last season after tallying a whopping five goals and 13 points in seven postseason games against them in the 2017-18 year old. Pastrnak has tortured and add this up the Maple Leafs to the tune of 18 goals and 38 points across 29 games . He also scored 38 goals and notched 81 points in only 66 games last season and has eight goals and 13 points in just seven matches this time around. He is shooting at an unsustainable 32% at the moment, but with just how sexy he is right now and the way hes played against the Maple Leafs, I dont mind paying the high price within this matchup tonight.
D — Mikhail Sergachev (TB) — $4,300 vs. COL
Completing our three-man Dragon pile is Sergachev whos having a genuine nice season so far in what might possible be a breakout season for its defenseman. We knew this kid was special when he tallied 40 points in 79 games as a rookie despite logging only 15:22 of ice time per game as a 19-year-old with this typical ice time representing a minuscule number for a defenseman. He did not appreciate quite as powerful of a sophomore year with 32 points last year despite increasing his ordinary ice time to 17:55, however hes managed to notch six assists in seven matches this season to go along with nine shots on goal and 11 blocked shots as well. He doesnt take a bunch of shots, but considering the ability level, we knew his original goal of the year isnt too far away. He is a true great power play defenseman where he will skate on the second unit alongside Gourde and Johnson with two of the six helpers coming on the individual advantage. Tonight will mark Tampas return home in the six-game road trip and only their second home match of this season after opening the season with five goals from the Panthers in Amalie Arena. Theyre an unreal home offense and I will try to squeeze a huge amount of value from the trio tonight.
D — Torey Krug (BOS) — $5,800 vs. TOR
Inform our Bruins mini-stack is Krug who anchors what is a devastating Bruins power play and one which ranks second in the NHL having a huge 38.1% clip at the moment. The Maple Leafs are right in the middle of the league using a 15th-ranked punishment kill at 80.8%, but weve observed this Bruins man advantage brutalize the Maple Leafs at each of the past two postseasons, thus we know there is big-time upside here with Krug whos an integral piece of this group. Case and point is all five of Krugs assists this season coming on the man advantage while hes added an even-strength goal for six points in seven games to go along with 12 shots on goal. Krug is a fantastic bet to emphasise that the 200-shot barrie he has done in every one of the last two healthy seasons also has as many as 244 in a season, as. He is now off to an identical start now within his free agent walk year and recorded 53 points in 64 games last season. Possibly one of the more underrated offensive defensemen in the NHL, there is a real opportunity Krug and Pastrnak produce some crime against a Maple Leafs group which may be susceptible to this blowup occasionally.
G — Antti Raanta (ARI) — $7,500 vs. OTT
I am not concerned about possession with this pick as I am convinced Raanta is place to see a good deal of it. The Senators input this one rated 28th with only 2.33 goals per game on the season while the Coyotes rank second with just 1.83 goals against per game. Darcy Kuemper has obtained within the powerful side of this timeshare in target involving himself and Raanta having some nice work while Raanta was on the shelf for much of the previous two seasons, including almost all of last year, as tonight marks only the second start of the year for Raanta. He took in his single start on a very good Colorado offense on the road known among the toughest matchups did well to yield only 3 goals in a 3-2 loss, together with the winner. Allowing two regulation goals is surely a strong outing, though his .906 Sv% from that outing mightnt show it. But the Coyotes are favored to win this one at huge chances that were -220, so the triumph upside is there in spades tonight. I will take the win upside along with the shutout upside in the goaltending matchup on this slate tonight.
