We have a smallish 6 game slate tonight , and there are fantastic options all across the board. Stacking will be big tonight, so look for some value where you can, and then load up on the star skaters.

Vegas lines are big when it comes to picking games to target, and that's a good place to start for goalies. When it comes to skaters, goal totals is another main place to start. Usually 5.5 goals is average, so targets games at six, and can look for goalies in games with a total at five.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy hockey lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 12/30/17. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to hit me up on Twitter @DFS_Tom. Let's get to it, shall we?

DFS Forwards to Consider

Patrice Bergeron - C, BOS @ OTT (DK - $7,200, FD - $7,300)

Bergeron is one of the best two-way centers in the league, and should see over 20 minutes in this game since he is on full rest. He is on the first forward line and the first power-play unit, so plenty of chances to score. He is up against the Senators who are simply not good this year, and with him taking nearly four shots a game, he stands to gain from this spot. Great cash game option tonight, but can also be used in a stack.

Jonathan Huberdeau - W, FLA vs MON (DK - $6,700, FD - $6,500)

Really like this spot for the Panthers tonight, and thinking that a line stack for the either the first forward line or the first power-play is the way to go. They have the fourth highest expected corsi for sitting at 45 tonight. That means they are expected to take a ton of shots, and that can lead to a ton of points. The Panthers seem to go under owned really anytime they are on the slate, and with this spot, they have plenty of upside. He has 36 points in 37 games this season, along with taking over three shots per game.


DFS Defenders to Consider 

John Carlson - D, WAS vs NJ (DK - $6,300, FD - $5,800)

Carlson is generally one of the better plays when it comes to defense, since he plays a ton of minutes, and is on the top defensive pairing and the top power-play unit. He is taking about three shots per game, along with blocking over one shot per game. He is up against the Devils who are on the second night of a back to back, which should be good for the Caps power-play.

P.K. Subban - D, NSH vs MIN (DK - $5,100, FD - $5,600)

Subban is up against the Wild, who they played last night. A little home, and home action in match up, where Subban had one goal and one assist last night. So if we are looking a the same lineup, but the backup goalie for the Wild due to the game last night, he should be in good shape. He is on the second defensive pairing and the first power-play unit, so plenty of ice time for him to rack up points.


DFS Goalies to Consider

Jonathan Quick - G, LA @ VAN (DK - $8,300, FD - $8,900)

Quick has lost two straight games, but is in a spot to bounce back and pick up the win against a weak Vancouver team. Quick has given up two or fewer goals in three of his last four games, and with the Canucks given up well over three goals per game, the Kings offense should be able to come away with the win. He has 17 wins in 30 starts this season, and a -134 road favorite.
