Daily Fantasy Hockey: DFS DraftKings Values – January 19

There are no teams on a back to back so that can be removed from analysis.

From Covers Experts, the biggest favorite is St. Louis, and rightfully so. That makes Brian Elliott a target in net tonight for cash games. San Jose is another big favorite at home tonight to New Jersey. I’m not as confident in the starting goaltending situation for the Sharks but there is a decent price discrepancy.

There are good values everywhere. Paul Stastny and Tyler Bozak are under $5,000, Jaden Schwartz’s price has dropped considerably over the last few weeks, and Phil Kessel is over $1,000 less than the top priced winger. That means spending a bit more on the blue line isn’t a bad idea.

Play Daily Fantasy Hockey on DraftKings Tonight!

As always, check Left Wing Lock for goalie confirmations.

Players will be in order of perceived value, by position, and there should be enough to mix-and-match for each type of game available on Draft Kings. Some positions might only have a few plays, some might have several. It all depends on the day, the matchups, and the price.

Remember: players are in order of value, not necessarily in cost. Just because Sidney Crosby is $8000 one day doesn’t mean he’s a better value than Andrew Shaw at $4000.

Cash Games

Centre Wing Defense Goalie
Pavelski (SJS) – $6700 Marleau (SJS) – $5500 Franson (TOR) – $4200 Elliott (STL) – $8700
Bozak (TOR) – $4400 Kessel (TOR) – $7300 Suter (MIN) – $4600 Niemi (SJS) – $7600
Stastny (STL) – $4700 Pominville (MIN) – $6100 Pietrangelo (STL) – $5900
Kopitar (LAK) – $6500 Schwartz (STL) – $5600 Burns (SJS) – $5600
Staal (CAR) – $5600 Hayes (FLA) – $3600
Sedin (VAN) – $3900 Skinner (CAR) – $5300
Berglund (STL) – $3600 Williams (LAK) – $5100


  • Marleau and Pavelski are not on the same even strength line, but they are on the same power play, and Pavelski’s price drop doesn’t make it prohibitive to use both.
  • I like the matchup for the Stastny line tonight, both for cash games and GPPs.
  • Patrik Berglund was skating with Jori Lehtera and Vladimir Tarasenko at the morning skate, but the lines are not set in stone as of yet.
  • Again, spending a bit extra on the blue line isn’t a bad idea tonight.

Guaranteed Prize Pools/Tournaments

Centre Wing Defense Goalie
Stastny (STL) – $4700 Schwartz (STL) – $5600 Pietrangelo (STL) – $5900 Dubnyk (MIN) – $7300
Bozak (TOR) – $4400 Jaskin (STL) – $2500 Rielly (TOR) – $3100 Bobrovsky (CBJ) – $7800
Thornton (SJS) – $4900 Kessel (TOR) – $7300 Vlasic (SJS) – $3500 Miller (VAN) – $9200
Kopitar (LAK) – $6500 van Riemsdyk (TOR) – $7100 Muzzin (LAK) – $4400
Marleau (SJS) – $5500
Nieto (SJS) – $2700
Gaborik (LAK) – $5700
Williams (LAK) – $5100


  • Like I mentioned, I do like the Stastny line tonight. Same goes for the Thornton line from San Jose. Both are similarly-priced, so getting one or the other in the lineup is probably the way to go.
  • If I do stack the Blues, I take one of Pietrangelo or Shattenkirk with them.
  • Devan Dubnyk will probably be more widely-owned, so going in the other direction with Bobrovsky isn’t a bad idea to be a bit contrarian in GPPs (though inherently more risky).

Slim’s Pickins (bargain plays)

Nick Shore (LAK-C, $2500) – Playing alongside Jeff Carter tonight it seems.

Dmitrij Jaskin (STL-W, $2500) – Draws back in tonight to play with Paul Stastny and Jaden Schwartz (though it may not be for certain until warmups).

Matt Tennyson (SJS-D, $2500) – Still getting second unit power play minutes for San Jose.

Good luck!

**UPDATE: New Sharks lines as tweeted by David Pollak of San Jose Mercury News includes Karlsson-Thornton-Pavelski, and Marleau-Couture-Wingels. I still like Pavelski/Marleau for cash game, but that Thornton line is fairly cheap for a GPP.
