Results for February 19th 2016 from my FanDuel DFS NHL 50/50 Lineup

My February 19th 50/50 lineup included left wingers Evander Kane and Brayden Schenn, right wingers Nestral and Simmons, centers Joe Thornton and Dubinski, defensemen Shayne Gostisbehere and Marc-Edouard Vlasic and goaltender Halak.

Yesterday’s lineup performed very well.  Halak was the shinning start scoring 10.4 fpts not only getting the win, but the shutout as well.  Shayne Gostisbehere kept his historic point streak alive bringing it to 14 games. He will be in my lineup again as he has a great matchup against the Maple Leafs today.  My value play also Nestrasil scored 4 fpts.

 

Ok, now lets get to some of my 50/50 and GPP lineup picks for your FanDuel and DraftKings lineups tonight.
GOALIES:

Braden Holtby (FD – $9,700 DK – $8,600) has been playing very well, especially at home where he has a record of 18-2-1.  Holtby has eight wins in his past ten games and has an 8-3-1 career record against the Devils.  Also the Devils are playing a back to back game and do not score very much so the possibility of a shutout could bring additional bonus points.

 

Petr Mrazek (FD – $9,300 DK – $7,700)

He is coming off back to back starts where he allowed five goals in both. I think this will provide him with low ownership in GPP games and is one of the cheaper starting goalies on DraftKings today. He has played very well for the Red Wings this year with a 22-11-5 record and .927 save percentage. He beaten the Senators twice this year allowing about 2 goals per game.

Players to Consider:  Brian Elliot

 

LEFT WINGERS:

Brayden Schenn (FD – $6,300 DK – $4,800)

Schenn has 5 goals and 3 assists in his last 10 games.  Today he gets a great matchup against the Maple Leafs and Ondrej Pavelec who has a .905 save percentage.


Henrik Zetterberg (FD – $6,700 DK – $5,600)

Zetterberghas been hot lately scoring a goal or an assist in 7 of the last 10 games so he has been very consistent.  He plays on Detroit’s first line and their top PP line, both alongside Pavel Datsyuk who has been on a tear lately.

Players to Consider: Jaden Schwartz ($6,000)
RIGHT WINGERS:

Justin Abdelkader (FD – $4.900 DK – $4.800)

Abdelkader is a great value play skating on both the Red Wings top line and the top PP unit with both Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. He has picked up 9 points in his last 10 games with 27 shots and 13 PIMs.

Jordan Eberle ($6.600 FD $5,900 DK)

Since the return of Conner McDavid, Eberle’s fantasy value has taken off.  He has 7 goals and 5 assists in the last 10 games.  Tonight he has a good match against the Avalanche and backup goalie Calvin Pickard who has a 2.75 GA and a .917 save percentage.

 

CENTERS:
Pavel Datsyuk ($6,900 FD $6,200 DK)

The Red Wings had a tough few games losing 2 of the last 3 giving up 5 goals in each of the last two games.  This has not stopped the offense though.  Datsyuk has been playing well with points in each of the last 7 games.

Todnight they face the Senators who struggle defensively giving up the most shots on goal in the league. With their 74% penalty kill Datsyuk should take advantage of this matchup.

Brayden Scheen ($6,300 FD $4,800 DK)
