NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Thursday 1/26/17

Martin Jones will be in goal for the Sharks, who are the biggest favorite on tonight's 13-game slate. Which other players are worth looking into for NHL DFS?

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?

It's time to give it a try over on FanDuel.com because it's a ton of fun. And our analysis and projections can help you win.

To help, take a look at some goalies, high-priced skaters, and lower-priced players to target for today's slate.

Goalie to Target

Martin Jones (FanDuel Price: $9,200): Despite today's slate including a whopping 13 games, most of the matchups are fairly close, and we don't have many big favorites. The San Jose Sharks are currently at -178 on the moneyline against the Edmonton Oilers, and they are the only team favored by at least -160. He combines that high win probability with a great ceiling as the Oilers rank in the top 10 in Corsi For per game and will likely get plenty of shots on goal. That gives Jones the potential for a big save total, helping him stand out on a slate where there aren't many goalies who combine those factors.
