I’ve been asked to write a special DFS column on Sunday, as it’s sure to be the last day of this season with three games, and your loving Dobber editors didn’t want the daily bettors walking around aimlessly. LOL. OK, to be completely fair, this is my sixth article, and I’ve bet on my own paid tips three out of the first five times! Not terrible.
As per my usual routine, I’ll stack a squad then pick one or more “value” players, a goalie who could either win or at least face 40+ shots, then I’ll fill the roster with a bargain .
PILE: It’s not as difficult as it seems. Breathe. DFS Thursday writer Steve Dotzel singled them out for releasing a single game too soon. the FLORIDA PANTHERS are not a team that can be silenced forever, and their PP projects will be different on Sunday – Aaron Ekblad ($5,300) back and Claude Giroux ($4,900) on the left wall, where he has thrived his entire career . Throw in an underrated Aleksander Barkov ($7500) and expect to take the “over” in this tilt, and bet on 10+ power plays combined.
VALUE CHOICE: From another team not listed to be swept, the Breadman Artemi Panarin ($5900) just needs to wake up its first line. Add Adam Fox ($6,400), another man missing in two games as the Rags rely twice on power plays.
GOALIE: mike smith ($7600), playing at home is better than its 2-2 record (2.25 GAA) and looks to be bouncing back from two terrible 1st period starts in Calgary. Imagine the Oilers with a real lead.
COMPLETE LIST with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins ($4400) and Darnell Nurse ($4700) from Edmonton, and NYR Alexis Lafrenière ($2900), which is well undervalued.
ALWAYS OFFER ADDITIONAL OPTIONS! So I play the lineup above, but my remorseful conscience says changing Barkov for Connor McDavid ($9500) then RNH for Anton Lundell ($2700) still fits into my DraftKings format. The Battle of Alberta did not lack attack!
Games are at 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., and 8:00 p.m. EST, even a break there — maybe — to grill for the family.
