We have a 4-game slate tonight where there are several teams in action who are in the playoff hunt, so no rest for them as the season comes to an end. You should be looking at teams in higher over-under games, due to the potential for plenty of scoring.

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, 6 goals are average, so target games at 6.5 or higher, and can look for goalies in games with a total at 5.5 or lower.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy hockey lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 3/6/19. 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 @ChrisWasselDFS. Let's get to it, shall we?

DFS Forwards to Consider 

Sean Couturier - C, PHI vs WSH (FD - $7,500, DK - $6,700)

Couturier's price has remained pretty steady on FanDuel and DraftKings, so you should consider him for tournaments tonight since he brings solid point potential. He is facing off against the Washington Capitals, who are allowing 13.01 high-danger scoring chances per 60 minutes, which is the second most in the league. This should put the Flyers in a spot to score plenty of goals, which is indicated by the 6.5 over-under. Couturier is up on the first forward line and the first power-play unit, which is expensive to stack but on a 4-game slate, there are still enough discount options to make most any stack viable.

Tom Wilson - W, WSH vs PHI (FD - $4,900, DK - $5,500)

There are some noteworthy things when it comes to Wilson tonight in this matchup. First off, he is playing up on the first forward line for the Capitals and is cheap across the industry. Getting exposure to Ovechkin on the top line is always a good thing and now at a discounted priced is something which can be tough to pass up when the Flyers give up over three goals a game at home. Wilson plays on the second power-play unit mostly, so his potential upside might be capped a bit, but hopefully, he makes the most of his ice time, since he is going up against a Philadelphia squad which yields a power-play goal 22.5% of the time. The Flyers get themselves in trouble against big, physical wingers like Wilson who can park himself in front of the net early and often.

 

DFS Defenders to Consider 

Travis Sanheim - D, PHI vs WSH (FD - $4,400, DK - $4,200)

Sanheim is still TOO CHEAP across the industry tonight and is riding a five-game point streak, which should almost certainly continue tonight given how soft the matchup is. He is facing off against the Capitals who are bottom four in the league in both Corsi Against and the number of high-danger scoring chances allowed per 60. This provides a great opportunity for Sanheim and the Flyers to outperform salary since he is so cheap and has a very advantageous matchup you should be looking to attack.

Shea Theodore - D, VGK vs CGY (FD - $4,400, DK - $5,000)

Theodore is another cheaper option at defense today and will likely stay on the top power-play unit for the Golden Knights. The good thing is that Theodore does not get gassed out. He plays on the second pairing at even strength. He comes in with four points in his last three games and has 17 shots on goal in that span, which is the highest on the slate. We should see plenty of offense here and if you are looking to do a game stack, you will need some savings at some point. Calgary can score some goals and has allowed ten tallies in their last two contests. Overall, Theodore's price has crept upward on DraftKings but is still below average market price by about $500.

 

DFS Goalies to Consider

Marc Andre-Fleury - G, VGK vs CGY (FD - $8,200, DK - $7,800)

Fleury is one of the hottest goalies in the last week and is riding a 160+ minutes shutout streak (three straight wins, just one goal allowed). The Golden Knights have looked much better defensively since the Mark Stone trade and Fleury has seen just 71 shots in his last three home starts. This means his potential upside is a little limited since the save volume may not be there, but you are trading that off for a better chance at a win.
