Daily Fantasy: Tuesday’s NHL picks
There are 11 evening games on tap in the National Hockey League Tuesday, Nov. 11, and the Buffalo-St. Louis (8:00pm ET) game is nationally televised on NBC Sports Network. Enjoy the nearly full slate of games.
(DraftDay.com salaries in parentheses) (all times ET)
Brian Elliott, St. Louis ($19150 vs BUF): The Blues are heavy, heavy favorites according to Vegas, and that means Elliott is a near shoe-in for a win and quality Fantasy points Tuesday. In 16 games this season, the Sabres have managed two or fewer goals in all but two of their games. That makes the opposing goaltender Fantasy gold, more often than not.
Braden Holtby, Washington ($15350 vs CLB): If you're not sold on Elliott, or just want to save a few dollars, Holtby is a nice Plan B. The Jackets have dropped eight in a row, and they're just 2-5 in their past seven trips to D.C. with the home team winning the past four meetings in this series.
Tyler Johnson, Tampa Bay ($12250 at CHI): The matchup hasn't mattered for Johnson, he is mowing down all comers. Over his past 12 games, he has at least one point in 11 outings. Over the past eight games he has managed four goals with 13 points and a plus-8 rating, including at least one goal (four total) in three straight contests.
Scott Hartnell, Columbus ($12800 at WAS): I've said in the past, not a big fan of using an offensive player against my goaltender. However, Hartnell can contribute to Fantasy bottom lines without necessarily scoring goals or assists. He takes plenty of shots, posting 45 shots on goal (SOG) over his past 11 games, and he has managed 21 penalty minutes (PIM) during the span.
Jaden Schwartz, St. Louis ($11600 vs BUF): Schwartz comes in with a point in three straight games, posting a goal, three assists and a plus-3 rating during the span. He also has three or more SOG in five of his past six games. Just don't expect many PIM from Schwartz.
Justin Braun, San Jose ($5800 at FLA): Braun is a super saver for DFS owners. He has posted an assist in each of the past two games, but his real value comes in the blocked shots category. He has seven BS in the past two outings.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Arizona ($11750 vs DAL): OEL takes plenty of shots for a rearguard, seeing plenty of time on the power play unit. While he is scoreless in three straight games, that means he is simply due. It is his longest scoreless stretch of the season. Even when he isn't scoring, he is blocking shots and taking plenty of shots. He rarely hurts Daily Fantasy owners with negative points.
