NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Monday 10/8/18

Today's main slate covers the afternoon's three games. Who should you trust 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, 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.

Goalie to Target

Carter Hutton ($7,500): The Buffalo Sabres are modest underdogs (+125 on the moneyline) against the Vegas Golden Knights. Hutton performed great on Saturday night against the New York Rangers. He not only stopped over 40 shots, but allowed just one goal in the victory. The Buffalo goaltender is still priced well, and Vegas has been averaging over 30 shots a game, which sets up as a potentially good GPP choice. There are a few other options -- like Tuukka Rask (moderate risk) and even Martin Jones (higher risk) -- but there will be more clarity on the slate's goalies once the other starters are confirmed. As of Monday morning, Hutton is only projected and not yet confirmed starting.
