2-18-17 NHL FanDuel Picks
These are my top 5 picks for the 18th. I usually run cash games so this will be for cash.
Goalie - Tough position tonight but I am going with Corey Crawford ($8900). Although he is somewhat expensive, he has played well recently. Over the past 3 games, he has gotten at least 24 fantasy points and those were against high powered offenses of Dallas, Minnesota, and Winnipeg.
Defense - Ryan Suter ($5300). Suter is coming off solid game with 17.3 points. I see him again being busy Saturday against the Predators. This price is too cheap.
Wing - Jaden Schwartz ($5500). Schwartz had 3 great games before his 6 point dud last Thursday. I look for him to bounce back against the Sabers. The Blues are one of the hottest teams in the league right now thanks to a 6 game win streak. I see at least 3 goals coming out of that game for the Blues and Schwartz should be one of them.
Center - Joe Thornton ($5500). Joe Thornton has had a pretty quiet year after their Western Conference championship last year. His past two games have been good with 11 and 24 points. The Coyotes are a terrible team and this game has a blowout possibility.
Wing - Jonathan Huberdeau ($6200). Huberdeau has been on fire since returning from injury. He has played four games and has gotten 21, 11, 36, and 23 points in those four games. He has a goal in 3 of the past 4 games. There is no reason why you shouldn't take him tonight.
