NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Thursday 12/28/17

Frederik Andersen is expected to start tonight for the Maple Leafs, who are the slate's biggest favorite. Which other players are in a good spot 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, let's take a look at some goalies, high-priced skaters, and lower-priced players to target for today's slate.

Goalies to Target

Frederik Andersen ($8,600): Andersen should be in net for the biggest favorites on the board tonight (-182) against the last-place Arizona Coyotes. That soft matchup ties him for the most likely chance to record a shutout among all goalies in action tonight, making him an excellent play at his current price. At the time of writing, Andersen has not yet been confirmed as the starter. He has had five days rest since his last start, but the Toronto Maple Leafs do play again tomorrow night. If he doesn't go, teammate Curtis McElhinney will make a fine substitute, or you can pay up for the safety of Andrei Vasilevskiy.
