DraftKings NHL Lineup Advice: Tuesday 11/5

Nov 5, 2019

The Stanley Cup Champion is likely to tally a win this evening

In just a matter of weeks, the classic Thanksgiving measuring stick for NHL teams will be upon us. The Sharks should be ready to sound the alarm. Buffalo, Anaheim, and Arizona are hoping they can continue their positive starts. Let’s take a look around the NHL for another busy Tuesday evening in DFS.

Center

John Tavares (TOR): $7,200 vs LA
Tavares is likely to make his return tonight at home against the Kings. There’s really no better way to get back on track than to have the Kings in town. They’re surrendering the most goals per game in the league right now. Prior to injury, Tavares had recorded a point in four straight games. He managed to score a goal later in the game that the injury occurred in, so I don’t have concerns that his thumb will hold him back. Matthews was enticing in this spot, but I’m going to choose to save the money and hope for a big return for Tavares.

Wing

Alexander Nylander (CHI): $4,500 vs SJ
Nylander will continue to skate alongside Brandon Saad and Jonathan Toews this evening. In his past four games, he has recorded three points and 13 shots. The Blackhawks will visit the Sharks, who are sinking like a stone in the standings. If you’re looking to assign some blame for San Jose’s horrid start, look no further than their goaltending. Martin Jones will start tonight with his 3.52 GAA and .887 sv%. I expect Nylander to be a beneficiary of the Sharks woes this evening.

Defense

Torey Krug (BOS): $5,700 @ MTL
I don’t normally like to use players on a back to back, but since this is a rivalry game, I expect Boston to come out with energy. Krug has been hot lately with nine points in his last ten games. Eight of those points have come on the power play, where he is comfortably secured as the quarterback of the top unit. In addition to scoring points, he has eclipsed five shots in a game twice in his previous seven games.

Nate Schmidt (VGK): $4,900 @ CBJ
Schmidt made his return from a month long injury last Thursday. He immediately found himself playing over 20 minutes a night and running the Golden Knights top power-play unit, which is currently the fifth most efficient in the league. In his two games back, he has posted a goal, an assist, two points, seven shots, and five blocks. Vegas is a better team than Columbus, and there should be goals scored in this one, as the Blue Jackets surrender the sixth most goals per game in the league this season.

Goalie

Jordan Binnington (STL): $7,500 @ VAN
My general philosophy in finding goalies is trying to find the cheapest win on the board. The biggest favorite in Vegas this evening is Toronto, but Frederik Andersen is appropriately priced as the evening’s top goaltender. For that reason, I’m going to take a shot on Jordan Binnington. He’s posted a 7-2-3 record with a 2.55 GAA and .917 sv%. I don’t love this spot in Vancouver with the Canucks playing well, but the Blues have won four straight and I’m confident that Binnington will put together a solid outing.
