Daily Fantasy Hockey: DFS DraftKings Values – February 10

Top DraftKings NHL value plays for cash games and tournaments for February 10.

John Tavares

Arizona, Edmonton, and Minnesota all played last night. Each team is a target to pick against in a large tournament, so it makes tonight’s decisions a little bit easier. As far as Vegas goes, the two most heavily favored teams are St. Louis and the NY Islanders, making both teams good targets for starting goalies (Jake Allen, Jaroslav Halak). Neither goalie is very expensive, either.

Play the $12,000 guaranteed, $2 entry Sniper contest on DraftKings tonight! Details below.

-$12,000 prize pool.
– First place wins $1,000
– $2 entry fee (FREE with first deposit)
– Top 1,350 finishing positions are paid.​
– Starts Tuesday, February 10 at 7:00 PM EST
– Salary Cap Style Drafting. $50,000 to select 9 spots. 8 players and 1 goalie.
– Roster Format: 2 C, 3 W, 2 D, 1 G and 1 Util.
– First time depositors at DraftKings receive a 100% bonus up to $600

As always, check Left Wing Lock for goalie confirmations.

There is a ton of value at center tonight. There isn’t much need to spend over $5000 on any single center for cash game purposes. Also, depending on how the lineup is constructed, there isn’t much need to spend a lot on defencemen, either. The problem is that the pricing is pretty soft tonight, so spending a bit more on the blue line just to get close to the cap isn’t a bad idea.

Cash Game

Center Wing Defence Goalie
Lehtera (STL) – $3000 Bailey (NYI) – $3600 Chara (BOS) – $4500 Allen (STL) – $8200
Krejci (BOS) – $4500 Tarasenko (STL) – $7800 Visnovsky (NYI) – $3100 Hutchinson (WPG) – $6900
Perreault (WPG) – $4500 Stone (OTT) – $3900 Byfuglien (WPG) – $5800 Halak (NYI) – $7800
Lee (NYI) – $4300 Pastrnak (BOS) – $3000 Subban (MTL) – $5900
Tavares (NYI) – $8800 Pacioretty (MTL) – $8100 Butler (STL) – $3400
Galchenyuk (MTL) – $4800 Kreider (NYR) – $4800
Giroux (PHI) – $6900 Neal (NSH) – $5600
Lucic (BOS) – $4700
  • Again, as can be seen, there isn’t a lot of need to spend much at center tonight. For those that want to pay up for Tavares, though, there’s not much problem there.
  • All of Bailey, Stone, and Pastrnak have very good matchups tonight, so using any one of them for cap relief (like it’s really needed) isn’t a bad idea.
  • Paying up a bit more for defencemen tonight isn’t a bad idea. There are a few expensive d-men that have very good matchups, and they’re probably necessary to get close to the cap.

GPP/Tournament

Center Wing Defence Goalie
Tavares (NYI) – $8800 Bailey (NYI) – $3600 Visnovsky (NYI) – $3100 Enroth (BUF) – $7000
Lee (NYI) – $4300 Tarasenko (STL) – $7800 Butler (STL) – $3400 Luongo (FLA) – $7700
Lehtera (STL) – $3000 Schwartz (STL) – $5800 Chara (BOS) – $4500 Allen (STL) – $8200
Krejci (BOS) – $4500 Lucic (BOS) – $4700 Byfuglien (WPG) – $5800
Perreault (WPG) – $4500 Pastrnak (BOS) – $3000 Karlsson (OTT) – $6300
Scheifele (WPG) – $4500 Stone (OTT) – $3900
Turris (OTT) – $4800 Michalek (OTT) – $3800
  • Clearly, using Jhonas Enroth in net for a GPP is just for those who avoid Ottawa for a stack.
  • The Blues and Islanders are both very obvious plays tonight. With that said, the prices of those lines aren’t exorbitant, and allows owners to comfortably stack elsewhere.
  • Either of the top two Bruins lines are fine, but I lean to the Krejci line just because the wingers aren’t very expensive, so it allows owners to use just about any other team to fill out the rest of their lineup.

Bargain Bin

Peter Holland (TOR-C, $2800) – Playing on what could be considered Toronto’s second line, and still plays the power play.

Jiri Sekac (MTL-W, $2500) – Sekac seems to be playing a bit better of late, and any depth players from Montreal will have very good in-game matchups tonight.

Anton Stralman (TBL-D, $2900) – Not a great matchup but the price is too good to ignore.

Good luck!
