NHL DFS Analysis and Picks for 01/05/24

"Happy New Year, everyone! I wish you all the best for 2024. If you're reading this, then you're well on your way to making it a profitable year with Rorotballer. Tonight, we have a three-game slate, with an obvious team to use in the Devils, who are playing the Hawks on a back-to-back. So, let's see who stands out tonight and will help you get that green!"

DISCLOSURE: Make sure to monitor the NHL news feeds for the latest player status and injury news.

 

DraftKings and FanDuel Goalies - NHL DFS Picks

John Gibson - DK $7.3K || FD $6.9K   

Opponent -  Winnipeg Jets

"I believe that our best options for the save bonus and avoiding being subbed out tonight would be Gibson, and possibly Keumper. However, selecting Keumper could be risky. If Gibson can perform close to Dostal's performance against the Leafs, it should give you a good chance tonight. Plus, you'll be avoiding the popular choice of the Jets."

 Others To Consider (Cash/GPP):
  •  Darcy Keumper - (DK $7.5DK || FD $7.6K)

DraftKings and FanDuel Centers - NHL DFS Picks

Nico Hischier - DK $6.1K || FD $6.8K

Opponent - Chicago Blackhawks

On DraftKings tonight, there is a significant $3800 discount on Nico compared to Hughes. This means that you can add some Jets players to your build as well. If you're looking for a contrarian option, consider Hischier and his line. They may be overlooked tonight as most people are building around the Hughes line or dropping down to the 3rd line if going with the Jets as their main stack. This presents a great opportunity for us to differentiate our lineup and potentially gain an edge over the competition. So, take advantage of the discount on Nico and consider adding Hischier to your lineup tonight.

Others To Consider (CASH/GPP):

  • Jack Drury (DK $2.6K || FD $4.2K)

 

DraftKings and FanDuel Wings - NHL DFS Picks

Michael Bunting - DK $3.9K || FD $5.2K 

Opponent - Washington Capitals

"We should aim for high-end value tonight and Bunting provides just that on DK. He has scored 1 goal and made 3 shots in each of his last two games, and I think he has secured a spot on the second line with Kotkaniemi/Necas. The Carolina/Washington game will most likely go overlooked tonight, so getting a player who costs less than 4K and also gets PP1 time at an ownership discount could provide us with a significant advantage."

Others To Consider (CASH/GPP):

  • Max Pacioretty (DK $5.6K || FD $3.6K)

 

DraftKings and FanDuel Defensemen - NHL DFS Picks

Josh Morrissey - DK $6.8K || FD $7.3K 

Opponent - Anaheim Ducks

In the previous game between the Ducks and the Leafs, the Ducks allowed the Leafs to take a staggering 57 shots on goal, despite the Ducks playing on back-to-back days. This is an alarming number of shots, and it indicates that the Ducks' defence was not up to par. Similarly, the Jets are also playing on back-to-back days tonight, which is a grueling schedule for any team. In their last game against the Sharks, Morrissey was able to take six shots on goal, which is a significant number for a defenseman. This demonstrates that Morrissey is an offensive threat from the blue line, and he could potentially provide valuable points for your fantasy team. Therefore, he is highly recommended for your team's lineup tonight.

Others To Consider (CASH/GPP):

  • Neal Pionk (DK $3.8K || FD $4.2K)
