3 NHL FanDuel Values to Target on 2/19/20
If you follow the NHL, you already know all of the top players. Obviously, when playing DFS, those players will come at a high cost. In this article, we are looking to find the cheaper value plays to help you afford the superstars
Kirby Dach, Center, Chicago Blackhawks
FanDuel Price: $3,600
The third line on the Chicago Blackhawks is one I have really been interested in for the last week or two. Kirby Dach has been centering Alex DeBrincat and Dylan Strome at even strength and the entire line plays on the second power-play unit together.
On the surface, Dach's 8 goals and 19 points in 57 games are disappointing for the season. However, he has managed 8 points in his last 10 games and the line seems to really be clicking in a complementary role.
Tanner Pearson, Winger, Vancouver Canucks
FanDuel Price: $4,800
There have been plenty of injuries to the Vancouver Canucks top-9 so they went out and traded for Tyler Toffoli. Tanner Pearson is playing on a line with Bo Horvat which is pretty solid and he also has a spot on the team's second power-play unit.
After spending time on three teams last season, Pearson is having a career year. His previous best was 44 points in 80 games back in 2016-2017, but this season he already has 41 points in 59 games and should maintain an important role on the team.
Keith Yandle, Defenseman, Florida Panthers
FanDuel Price: $4,600
The worst season Keith Yandle has put up in Florida is 41 points in 82 games. This season, he's on pace 57 points -- which would be the third-highest mark in his career at the age of 33. This price seems pretty cheap for Yandle as the Florida Panthers visit the Anaheim Ducks.
Yandle is ranked as the fourth-highest point-per-dollar defenseman on the slate, as per our projections. The Panthers are the fifth-highest scoring team this season, averaging 3.44 per game, while the opposing Ducks are allowing 3.14 goals per game which is the 10th-most.
