3 NHL FanDuel Values to Target on Tuesday 10/26/21
Spending lower in any daily fantasy lineup is a way to incorporate some diversity into your roster. In NHL DFS, there is typically more value in this strategy but also a good deal more risk. This is especially true on tonight's slate, where there are lots of lower-salaried plays. Plugging in these options will afford you more chances to play some studs, as well.
Tuesday night is a nice chance to enjoy a medium slate that is not so chaotic. Let's hunt for some more values.
Jonathan Dahlen, Center, San Jose Sharks
FanDuel Salary: $3,900
Jonathan Dahlen is seeing some top-line time for the San Jose Sharks. The young pivot has reaped the benefits, racking up three goals and an assist in five games. Nashville is an interesting matchup and a team that can easily give up three or more goals any given night.
It also helps that Dahlen is not being overclocked as a young player. Typically, Dahlen is playing about 12 to 13 minutes a night. The Nashville game represents the fifth game of this long road trip for the Sharks, and while Dahlen's salary is slowly climbing, we should keep buying in.
The scoring chances for Dahlen should be there, and he has four-plus shots in two of the last four contests.
Troy Terry, Wing, Anaheim Ducks
FanDuel Salary: $3,800
While some of his teammates have been salaried out of the value tier, Terry has not. He has two goals and four assists on the season. Furthermore, the winger is averaging two shots a game and nearly three scoring chances a night.
Anaheim can be a risky team to roster, but they can be rewarding, as well. Terry and Trevor Zegras are definitely the ones to watch.
Damon Severson, Defensemen, New Jersey Devils
FanDuel Salary: $4,100
This safe value play sounds smart on the surface, but it may pay even more dividends on Tuesday night. Damon Severson has been consistent since his return from injury, and three double-digit FanDuel-point nights have drawn some notice.
Also, the New Jersey Devils continue their long homestand against a Calgary Flames team that just played the New York Rangers last night. There may be a few more unblocked shot attempts from the point, which could pad Severson's totals.
Severson also sees a good deal of power-play time, and his ability to find forwards in transition adds to his DFS outlook.
