NHL Daily Fantasy Helper: Thursday 11/17/16

With the Dallas Stars boasting the night's top implied total, Tyler Seguin has big upside against the Colorado Avalanche. Which other players should we check out 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, take a look at some goalies, high-priced skaters, and lower-priced players to target for today's slate.

Goalies to Target

John Gibson ($8,500): The Anaheim Ducks still haven't announced a starting goalie for tonight, so make sure to check up on this closer to lineup lock, but Gibson is at the top of their depth chart and is likely to be named the starter. At -170 on the moneyline, Anaheim is the biggest favorites on the slate, and we give Gibson the best odds among today's goalies for a win (61%) as well as a shutout (14%). The New Jersey Devils also have the lowest implied total on the slate, and we project Gibson for the highest fantasy score among today's goalies. To boot, he is our second-best value when you account for salary.
