NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 11/2/16
A good chunk of you probably already play daily fantasy football, and I'd be willing to bet a significant portion have also tried out daily fantasy basketball and baseball. But hockey? Hockey?
To help, take a look at some goalies, high-priced skaters, and lower-priced players to target for today's slate.
Goalies to Target
Carey Price ($9,800): Price's salary may be tough to stomach, but with limited options on today's three-game slate, he is by far the safest goalie option if you can fit him into your lineup. The Vancouver Canucks are the lowest-scoring team in the NHL right now, averaging only 1.9 goals for per game, and they rank 27th in Corsi For per game. The Montreal Canadiens, on the other hand, have allowed the league's fewest goals per game. Our projections have Price as the highest-scoring fantasy goalie of the night. While Vancouver's low Corsi For means he may not rack up many saves, we project him for a 68% chance of scoring a win, as well as a 15% chance of recording a shutout.
