Fan Duel NHL Lineup Advice: (11/11)

Nov 11, 2017

Vlad has quickly become one of the best players in hockey

Tonight there are 10 games in the main NHL slate and after digesting all the matchups and information here are some of my suggestions for your cash lineups tonight on FanDuel. I particularly like some home teams that will be facing off against backup netminders whose teams will be on the second night of back-to-back games.

Teams that should put up some goals tonight that will be good for your player selections include:

Winnipeg Jets
Arizona Coyotes
Nashville Predators
St. Louis Blues
New Jersey Devils

Tonight’s top goalie plays for tonight listed in salary order

Always double check lineups to verify the starting goalies each night as they are subject to change.

Pekka Rinne (NSH): $8,900 vs. PIT
Martin Jones (SJ): $8,800 vs.VAN
Jake Allen (STL): $8,800 vs. NYI
Charlie Lindgren (MON): $7,600 vs. BUF
Keith Kinkaid (NJ): $7,400 vs. FLA

My cash game lineup for tonight.

Center

Ryan Johansen (NSH): $5,500 vs. PIT

Johansen hasn’t been piling up the points lately with just one assist in his last five games but with the addition of Kyle Turris as a second center in Nashville, Johansen should be freed up some more. Centering the top line with Viktor Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg, I like their matchup tonight against Pittsburgh who will likely be playing their backup goalie Tristan Jarry in what is always a hostile environment in Nashville.

Brayden Schenn (STL): $6,700 vs. NYI

Schenn will center the top line tonight against an Islanders team who gave up five goals last night versus Dallas. In his last three games, Schenn has a goal and seven assists along with seven shots on goal.

Wing

Viktor Arvidsson (NSH): $6,700 vs. PIT

Arvidsson has three goals and an assist in his last three games with a total of 11 shots on goal and four blocks. If you decide the Predators are a team that you want to go with in your lineups tonight, Arvidsson is the guy to build around.

Vladimir Tarasenko (STL): $8,300 vs. NYI

The Blues have a great matchup at home tonight versus the Islanders so that makes Tarasenko almost a must play tonight. He is having a nice stretch right now posting three goals and five assists in his last five games.

Joonas Donskoi (SJ): $4,100 vs. VAN

Donskoi is in a great spot tonight playing on the top line for the Sharks and he comes at a value price. He has three goals, one assist and 14 shots on net in his last five games.

Drew Stafford (NJ): $3,900 vs. FLA

Stafford is a good, safe value selection to plug in my cash lineup for tonight and he has two goals and one assist in his last five games. The Devils have a good matchup versus Florida who is on the second night of back-to-back games and they will likely face the struggling James Reimer who has allowed nine goals in his last two appearances.

Defense

Alex Pietrangelo (STL): $6,300 vs. NYI

Pietrangelo has been a staple in my cash lineups all season and he keeps performing well with seven goals, nine assists, and 56 shots in 17 games played. He has three goals in his last three games and has a good matchup tonight at home versus the Islanders.

Jacob Trouba (WPG): $4,500 @ ARI

Trouba has three assists in his last four games and the Jets will be looking to bounce back after a loss last night in Vegas. Winnipeg has been on a good stretch of games lately going 5-2-3 in their last 10 games and will be playing at Arizona tonight.

Goalie

Martin Jones (SJ): $8,800 vs VAN

The Sharks have won four of their last five games and will be a -200 favorite according to Vegas going into tonight’s home game versus Vancouver. Jones allowed four goals in his last outing versus Tampa Bay and he should be motivated tonight to get back to his winning ways tonight in a good matchup.
