We have a seven-game slate tonight with a few lopsided favorites, along with some games with over-under set at six or higher. There should be plenty of scoring to go around tonight and plenty of options for both cash games or GPPs.

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 are average, so targets game 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 3/26/19. 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 

Connor McDavid - C, EDM vs LA (FD - $9,200, DK - $8,300)

McDavid is the most expensive skater on both sites tonight and despite the fact the Oilers season is over, you should be looking to lock in some solid points, as he brings them every night. He comes in with nine multi-point games in his last 11 and is still averaging three shots per game. The Oilers come in as -210 home favorites tonight against the Kings who are on the second night of a back to back and will like be down to their back up goalie. McDavid is fine for any format as usual and if you can afford to stack him with Draisatil and Klefbom, you are in a good spot for tournaments.

Cam Atkinson - W, CLS vs NYI (FD - $7,000, DK - $7,200)

Let me say this, the situation for the Blue Jackets is approaching a dire level, since they are on the outside looking in on the playoffs, even with all the trades they made. They NEED to be winning games and with the final stretch upon us, this is the time for their best players to step up and get it done, which is where Atkinson has been lacking. Over his past seven games, he has a single point. Yes, seven games and a single assists, which is simply horrible, but with that inconsistency presents the chance for lower ownership in tournaments. He is facing off against the Islanders, who he is actually very good against, 24 career games and 24 career points. The shots are still there for him, just need to find the back of the net tonight.

 

DFS Defenders to Consider 

Erik Gustafsson - D, CHI @ ARI (FD - $5,900, DK - $5,900)

Technically, the Blackhawks are not mathematically eliminated from the playoff hunt, but it's looking very unlikely at this point. We can still look to them for fantasy points, specifically Gustaffson, who is playing amazing as of late and isn't too expensive tonight. He comes in with three goals, a whopping 20 shots, and 10 blocked shots, which is amazing. That is elite level production, yet he isn't priced up to that point right now on either site. The Blackhawks are facing off against the Coyotes tonight who come in allowing a 59 Corsi Against, which is seventh worst in the league. This means they are allowing far too many shots per game, playing right into the hands of the Blackhawks.

Jaccob Slavin - D, CAR @ WAS (FD - $3,700, DK - $3,900)

Great price on Slavin tonight who comes in with no points in his last five games, but has 10 shots and nine blocked shots. Yes, there is a lack of upside here, but that comes with his price being on the cheaper side tonight. You are going for his safe floor of points which is what you want to be looking for in cash games. The Hurricanes are only +120 on the road against the Capitals, which should make this a bit closer than some might think.

 

DFS Goalies to Consider

Carey Price - G, MON vs FLA (FD - $9,200, DK - $8,000)

Is the Price right tonight? Well, I certainly hope so with the Canadiens coming in as -175 home favorites against the Panthers who are on the second night of a back to back. The Canadiens are also in a spot where they need to be picking up wins to secure a playoff spot and Price is doing his all to get them there, allowing two or fewer goals in six of his last seven starts. He is solid for cash games tonight along with tournaments as he has seen 28 saves or more in three of his last five games.
