NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Thursday 2/2/17

Jimmy Vesey is one of the night's top value plays for his matchup against the Buffalo Sabres. Which other players should you target in 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.

Goalies to Target

Pekka Rinne (FanDuel Price: $9,000): While it's a decent-sized eight-game slate tonight, there aren't a lot of huge favorites, and no goalies really check all the boxes you would usually want in a top play. Rinne doesn't exactly stand out in any one area, but there also aren't any major red flags for him. The Nashville Predators are -139 favorites right now, putting them in a group five teams with moneylines between -139 and -143 (which are effectively the same as far as implied win probability goes).
