3 NHL FanDuel Value Plays to Target on Friday 3/25/22

Which budget options can we count on for Friday night? Let's take a dive into the NHL DFS bargain bin.

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.

Friday night delivers five games on the schedule. Let's go crazy!

Jack Roslovic, Center, Columbus Blue Jackets

FanDuel Salary: $4,000

The group of centers at budget-friendly salaries is problematic on Friday. However, Jack Roslovic may be a risk worth taking.

As long as Roslovic is employed on the top line, he is someone to look into. He has two goals and two assists In his last five games and could easily see 17-plus minutes of playing time tonight.

Winnipeg may be at home, but they are again unrested. It may be worth looking into players who will get a couple more scoring chances than usual. Roslovic is one of those.

He has an erratic shot floor, but Roslovic does have four blocked shots during this five-game span, too. That adds a little to his overall floor for Friday.

Nick Ritchie, Wing, Arizona Coyotes

FanDuel Salary: $3,900

As March draws to an end, it is time to take more dangerous looks into slates, and Nick Ritchie is a possibility in Calgary.

His salary inched up a bit for a reason. His middle-six row in Arizona could easily have room for expansion.

Ritchie has three goals in his last six games, with multiple shots on goal in three of those games and three blocked shots, too.

The forward can jam and bang in front of the net, which should afford him a few scoring chances even in a hostile environment.

Cam York, Defenseman, Philadelphia Flyers

FanDuel Salary: $3,800

Hopefully, Cam York is just allowed to be turned loose the rest of the regular season.

Now, his numbers will only rise if the Philadelphia Flyers make that a reality. York played 20 minutes on Thursday against the St. Louis Blues while dishing out two assists.

The Flyers' defenseman had several scoring chances and is one to watch -- especially if he keeps getting power-play opportunities.

His $3,800 salary and matchup against Colorado keep him an under the radar on Friday night.
