3 NHL FanDuel Value Plays to Target on Monday 2/28/22

T.J. Brodie should see more playing time thanks to injuries on the Toronto blue line. Who else can help us spend up on Monday's slate?

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 of risk, too. The right low-salary plays can give you good production while affording you more chances to roster high-salary studs.

Monday night has three games on the schedule. Let's dig into some values!

Quinton Byfield, Center, Los Angeles Kings

FanDuel Salary: $3,900

Quinton Byfield does not play a lot of time -- in fact, mostly it's a fourth-line role. However, in the last two games, he has made the most of his 10 minutes of ice time.

He has a goal and assists his last two games with four shots on goal. He has six scoring chances despite the bottom-six role. Byfield is a member of the Los Angeles Kings to watch as the season winds down. His playing time should increase if his production stays at this level.

At just $3,900, Byfield allows one to spend up in other places.

Nils Hoglander, Wing, Vancouver Canucks

FanDuel Salary: $3,500

Nils Hoglander is an interesting middle-six option for the Vancouver Canucks.

The winger has struggled to get goals or assists lately. His drought has reached six games, but in his last four contests, Hoglander does have 9 shots and 11 scoring chances.

While the New Jersey Devils are defensively deficient, that opens a door for a player like Hoglander who has high-quality speed. New Jersey has allowed the seventh-most goals (187) in the NHL.

The forward has talent and it can strike at any time, and this game is loaded with quality stud options to stack.

T.J. Brodie, Defenseman, Toronto Maple Leafs

FanDuel Salary: $4,000

The Toronto Maple Leafs' defenseman might be worth taking a look at on Monday night.

With the injury to Jake Muzzin, more of a focus will be placed on T.J. Brodie. Brodie has been lofted up to the Leafs' second defensive pairing.

The floor looks to be reasonable enough for Brodie. He has 22 combined shots and blocks over the past seven games in a lesser role. He's added a goal and two assists in that time.

Brodie, at the least, is a blue liner that's worth a flier to pay with other top stars as Toronto visits Washington on Monday.
