NHL GPP Thoughts, Stacks and Cheap Defenseman 1/26

daily fantasy hockey advice

GPP thoughts for 1/26 Slate:

Tonight’s slate features 9 games, with all but one having pretty established favorites The underdogs tonight are not attractive to me for DFS purposes. The story to watch for tonight is the goaltending situation for Colorado. Varlamov is not with the team so Roman Will was recalled from the AHL. Pickard is scheduled to get the start but twitter buzz has him being sick. I will target this situation regardless but more so if Pickard gets the nod.

Top Stacks for 1/26 Slates:

Ottawa -The Senators get a good matchup against the Sabers who have dropped 3 straight. Ottawa are scoring at a rate of 2.71 GF/G which should they be able to at least reach against the Sabers who are allowing 2.67 GA/G. I will look to a stack of Zibanejad, Hoffman, Ryan and Karlsson for a cost of $23,200 on DraftKings & $23,700 on FanDuel.

Nashville – The Predators have posted back-to-back road wins while scoring 4 goals in each game. Tonight they will face a bad Vancouver team who will continue to be without Henrik Sedin. Ryan Miller’s .920 home save % doesn’t do enough to scare me off and i will target him with a stack of Johansen, Neal, Fiala, and Ekholm for $18,000 on DraftKings and $21,200 on FanDuel. This stack is slightly more enticing on DraftKings because Pekka Rinne’s .891 road save % might hurt the +/- of the Nashville skaters.

San Jose – The Sharks have scored at least 3 goals in 4 of their last 5 and tonight get a great matchup against Colorado. Calvin Pickard will get the start for Colorado and I want exposure to his .889 road save %. I will go for a stack of Pavekski, Thornton, Hertl, and Burns for $26,100 & $25,400 on FanDuel. Brent Burns’ high salary on both sites is not optimal but his inclusion in this stack is necessary even though he is pointless in his last 3 games.
Cheap defenseman to use to fill out your stacks.

Connor Murphy (DK $2,900 & FD $3,100) Arizona – Gets PP minutes and is on top pairing.

Dmitry Kulikov (DK $3,400 & FD $3,100) Florida – Gets PP minutes and gets Toronto.

Colin Miller (DK $3,300 & FD $3,200) Boston – Gets PP minutes and has a + matchup.

Shea Theodore (DK $3,500 & FD $3,200) vs Boston – Gets PP minutes and hot as of late.
