NHL DFS Picks, 4-5-15
It’s a short slate today with one afternoon game that I will be ignoring. I’m not really a fan of today’s games so I’m not investing a lot into today. I’ll be making only 2-3 lineups with a mix of players from Ottawa and Montreal.
I’ll take my shot mixing between the top two lines on each team. Pacioretty/Plekanec/Gallagher will be the main line I’m focusing on from Montreal. They are the top line and all three see PP time (Plekanec/Gallagher on 2nd unit). The Habs don’t score much, but much of their goals come from their top line, especially Pacioretty.
On Ottawa, I’ll be going after their 1st and 2nd lines. MacArthur/Turris/Stone will be my top target but I’ll spread the love almost equally to Smith/Zibanejad/Ryan. The plus side to the 2nd line is that they all play the PP together, while Smith from the 1st line doesn’t see PP time. I will also be trying to fit Karlson into my LU, even if that means sacrificing my 2nd dman to a cheaper boom/bust guy.
Goalies: I’ll probably be using four Senators so using Hammond is out of the question for me on FanDuel, but I’ll be targeting Jake Allen or any other starter named who will fit with my salary.
