NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Wednesday 2/15/17
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
Sergei Bobrovsky (FanDuel Price: $8,600): The Columbus Blue Jackets are the biggest favorites on the slate (-163 moneyline) in a matchup against a Toronto Maple Leafs team that ranks in the top 10 in Corsi For per game this season. Facing a high number of shots does introduce a little bit of volatility into Bobrovsky's fantasy value, but with a solid chance of scoring a win combined with the save upside that comes with the likelihood of facing a ton of shots, he's a top play in all formats.
*UPDATE - 5:05 PM EST:* The Blue Jackets will be starting Joonas Korpisalo in goal today, he is very cheap at $7,500, and is in play largely for the same reasons Bobrovsky was.
