Daily Fantasy Hockey Picks – March 19

We had some success at FanDuel and DraftKings last night. One of our FanDuel lineups scored 32.90 points and made it in the money in a $300 Mon Double Up. My first attempt at a Drafkings lineup scored 38.2 fantasy points and placed ninth in the one tournament I entered. If we got anything from Jakub Voracek—I mean anything—we probably would have finished in the top five and made some money. But I guess we can say that about any player on any given night in daily fantasy gaming. It’s a self-admitted weak excuse for not placing higher in big tournaments.

Jon Quick was our star with a shutout victory and 10.4 fantasy points. His performance continues to solidify my theory that we shouldn’t pay for goaltending. Quick was one of the cheapest options in net last night and came through in a big way for us.

I’ll enter the following lineup into some FanDuel head-to-heads and Double Ups. I consider this lineup to be fairly high-risk, so you may want to tinker with some different line combos:

LW: Milan Lucic $5,900—The Bruins are 7-3 following a loss this season. They lost to Pittsburgh on Mar. 17 and Lucic regressed after he registered a three assist night on Mar. 16. Even though Ryan Spooner will now center the Lucic/Hornton line I like Lucic to bounce back tonight. Lucic did have five shots against the Penguins—the most he’s recorded all month.

LW: Jiri Tlusty $7,000—Tlusty is streaky but has a great matchup against a Florida team allowing 3.8 goals per game. If there were ever a game for Tlustly to start a new streak, this is the one. This month Tlusty has one goal, one assist and is plus-4 against Florida.

RW: Chris Stewart $6,800—Stewart has been on fire with five goals in three games. I’ll ride the hot hand tonight.

RW: Tyler Seguin $7,600—Seguin has three points in his past four games. What I find even more impressive is that he has gone plus-3 over that time and is now plus-19 on the season.

C: Sidney Crosby $9,900

C: Ryan Spooner $3,000—This is a big risk of a pick. Spooner was just called up, but according to Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe Spooner will be thrown right into the mix of things and center a line with Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic.

D: Dougie Hamilton $4,400—I always roll with Hamilton and will continue doing so until his price rises. He continues to see healthy power play minutes and isn’t afraid to shoot the puck.

D: Jacob Muzzin $4,700—Muzzin had a goal last night and continues to see big power play minutes.

G: Jake Allen $5,400—Have I mentioned before that I don’t like to pay for goaltending? His stats are impressive this season: 8-1-0, 2.19, .920.
