Welcome to the daily fantasy hockey picks article for DraftKings, FanDuel, and DraftPot for Friday, November 27, 2015. After a Thanksgiving day off in the NHL, we have a full schedule on Friday with 13 games. There are 5 early games starting at Noon and 8 more games starting at 7:00 PM. DraftKings and FanDuel are both offering multiple tournaments for the early slate, late slate, and all day slate. To accommodate all of these options I will be providing a pick from the early and late slates at each position.
Lets now dig in to the matchups and find some core plays for early and the late slate.
Henrik Lundqvist - New York Rangers @ BOS *PROBABLE*
DraftKings - $8,300 FanDuel - $11,000 DraftPot - N/A DPPG
Coming off a bad loss in his last start he will look to rebound as he always does following a down start. He is the best goalie in hockey and has 21 career wins vs. the Bruins. In what should be a low scoring game on Friday afternoon, I look for the Rangers to get back in the win column.
Mike Smith - Arizona Coyotes vs. CGY *PROBABLE*
DraftKings - $6,300 FanDuel - $7,900 DraftPot - 3.00 DPPG
A nice salary relief GPP option on Friday as the Coyotes are home to the Flames who are ranked 21st in goals per game. Hasn't been at his best this season with a 9-5-1 record and .906 save % but has fared well when faced with a favorable matchup at home. Will be a low owned option with a good shot at a win.
Also Consider -Jimmy Howard - Detroit Red Wings
Ryan Getzlaf - Anaheim Ducks vs. CHI
DraftKings - $6,400 FanDuel - $8,300 DraftPot - N/A DPPG
After a very slow start to the season, Getzlaf has really started to hit his stride with 10 points in his last 6 games. He has been a point per game player at home and has 27 points in 34 career games vs. the Blackhawks. He is safe in any format on DraftKings where his price is very reasonable.
Sidney Crosby - Pittsburgh Penguins @ CBJ
DraftKings - $7,500 FanDuel - $8,900 DraftPot - 2.78 DPPG
He is a great bargain around the industry and this will probably be the last time we see him at such a bargain. He has started to heat up with a 3 game point streak and a season high 9 shots against the Blues on Wednesday. There is no question about the talent and the problem definitely lies within team chemistry which seems to be trending in the right direction.
Also Consider Dylan Larkin - Detroit Red Wings vs. EDM **Late Slate**
Patrick Kane - Chicago Blackhawks @ SJ
DraftKings - $8,500 FanDuel(RW) - $8,400 DraftPot - N/A DPPG
The top option in fantasy right now for the price. He is still under $9K on both FanDuel and DraftKings. He has pushed his point streak to an amazing 17 games with 2 assists in San Jose on Wednesday. Until he cools down or the price sky rockets I will be using him every chance I can get.
Kyle Okposo - New York Islanders @ FLA
DraftKings - $6,000 FanDuel(RW) - $6,400 DraftPot - 5.53 DPPG
When playing on the top line with John Tavares he is a very consistent fantasy option. He is riding a 6 game point streak and has points in 8 of his last 9 games. He is averaging 15.5 CF/60 and has a nice floor in almost ever game he plays.
Also Consider - Phil Kessel - Pittsburgh Penguins @ CBJ **Late Slate**
Shayne Gostisbehere - Philadelphia Flyers vs. NSH
DraftKings - $2,800 FanDuel - $3,000 DraftPot - N/A DPPG
A great punt option who is getting over 18 min of ice time per game with over 3:30 of that on the powerplay. He has a nice floor on sites that don't count +/- as he is averaging 15.9 CF/60. He is a safe low priced option that leaves a lot of salary to roster top options at the goaltender and forward position.
P.K. Subban - Montreal Canadiens @ NJ
DraftKings - $6,400 FanDuel - $6,600 DraftPot - 2.48 DPPG
Consistent option on the point if you are paying up on the slate. He takes a ton of shots, blocks around a shot a game(DK/DP Bonus) and will also pick up penalty minutes(FD Bonus) and powerplay points(FD/DP bonus).
Also Consider - Ryan Suter - Minnesota Wild vs. WPG **Early Slate**
