Best NHL DFS Picks for November 11, 2017
NHL DFS Centers
Nico Hischier vs FLA (5.3k DraftKings, 4.8k FanDuel)
Nico Hischier is showing that he has all-star potential so far this season. Ten points in fifteen goals so far for the Devils center. He’s tallied two goals and eight helpers. Hischier’s totalled three points in the past five games. The Devils can put goals up on the board and is eighth in the league in goals per game at 3.33 a contest. Florida also gives up a league worst 4.14 goals a game.
Ryan Johansen vs PIT (4.7k DraftKings, 5.5k FanDuel)
Ryan Johansen is snake-bitten so far this year with only seven assists in fifteen games. Hasn’t been able to snipe on yet but there is always the next game. The Penguins will be on the second night of a back to back. Johansen could exact some revenge for the Predators after losing to the Pens in the Stanley Cup Finals. Johansen has registered three shots on goal in the past four games.
Mark Scheifele @ ARI (7.8k DraftKings, 8k FanDuel)
Mark Scheifele has been on a tear to start the season with nine goals and nine helpers in 14 games. Last time out against the Stars he had three points (two goals and one assist). In the past five games, he has lit up the scoresheet with six goals and four assists. The Kitchener native gets time on the power-play and the Coyotes are 26th in the league in penalty kill percentage at 76.5%.
Others to consider: Sidney Crosby, Sean Couturier, Aleksander Barkov
NHL DFS Wingers
Jaden Schwartz vs NYI (6.3k DraftKings, 7.1k FanDuel)
The line of Jaden Schwartz, Vladimir Tarasenko, and Brayden Schenn have been unstoppable this season. Schwartz is a must have in your lineup because he’s good for at least a point. 21 points in 17 games for the Schwartz and he’s recorded four points in the past three games. #17 is always buzzing when the Blues have the PP and has tallied two goals and three assists
Joe Pavelski vs VAN (6.4k DraftKings, 7.4k FanDuel)
Joe Pavelski is always dangerous with Joe Thornton and must like the number eight. He wears the number and has eight appearances on the scoresheet this season. Four goals and four helpers with one coming on the PP. He isn’t afraid to rip the puck at the net, tallying 15 shots the past five games. Look for him to get power-play minutes when the Canucks go to the sin bin.
Anthony Mantha vs CBJ (5k DraftKings, 5.7k FanDuel)
Anthony Mantha is leading the Red Wings in goals and points this season with eight goals and 17 points. Last game against the Flames he had a goal and two assists. In the past five games, he’s ripped 14 shots on the opposing tender. Mantha also has tacked on three power-play goals this campaign
Others to Consider: David Pastrnak, Blake Wheeler, Max Pacioretty
NHL DFS Defensemen
Shayne Gostisbehere vs MIN (5.6k DraftKings, 6k FanDuel)
Shayne Gostisbehere is on a five-game point streak and they’ve all been assists. Gostisbehere has been an assist machine this year, tallying 14 so far. On the power-play, he has nine helpers. Whenever the Flyers are on the PP, you can expect him to be on the ice. His +/- is 4 on the year and is always in the shooting lanes with 13 blocks. A must start on Saturday night when they take on the Wild.
Ryan Suter @ PHI (5k DraftKings, 5.2k FanDuel)
Ryan Suter is on a three-game point streak with as many assists. He’s tallied two goals and nine assists in 15 games. In the last five games, he’s fired nine shots on the net. He is on the ice a ton for the Wild, averaging almost 26 minutes a game. Suter isn’t afraid to put his body on the line with 31 shot-blocks. He has four assists when the Wild have the man advantage.
Michael Del Zotto @ SAJ (4.1k DraftKings, 4.1k FanDuel)
Michael Del Zotto is adding a spark to this rebuilding Canucks by bringing some leadership and points. He’s totaled seven points in 16 contests. Del Zotto is also doing it on the defensive end with 33 blocked shots. He’s tallied two assists in the last three games. He’s also got two points when the Canucks have the man advantage. He’ll be a cheap addition to your lineup which will allow you to spend on some skilled forwards
Others to consider: Brent Burns, Roman Josi, Torey Krug
NHL DFS Goalies
Martin Jones vs PIT (8.1k DraftKings, 8.8k FanDuel)
Martin Jones has been a stonewall for Sharks this year. He’s 7-4-0 with 2.29 goals against average. Jones’ save percentage is .922 and he’s won three of the past four games. In the wins, he’s only allowed a maximum of two goals. The Canucks struggle to put the puck in the net and are averaging 2.69 goals a contest. Jones is from the North Vancouver area, so look for him to stick it to his old squad.
Pekka Rinne vs PIT (7.7K DraftKings, 8.9k FanDuel)
Pekka Rinne’s season is off to a strong start this season and he’s 7-2-2 to start the season. He’ll be facing a tired Pittsburgh Penguins team so expect a strong performance from Rinne. In the last four game, he’s 3-1. In the three wins, Rinne has made at least 35 saves in those performances.
