Kyle Okposo is a solid DFS play Tuesday

(FantasyAces.com salaries in parentheses) (all times ET)
Marc-Andre Fleury ($7750 vs NJ): The Devils have dropped four of their past five games, and they are 2-8 in their past 10 trips to Pittsburgh. The home team has also won 21 of the past 28 meetings in this series, which makes a win a strong possibility for Fleury and the Penguins.
James Reimer, Toronto ($7250 vs BUF): Reimer has not yet been confirmed as the starter, but after Jonathan Bernier was pulled in his latest outing, Optimus Reim should get the nod. If so, he faces a very favorable matchup against a Sabres team the Leafs have had greatest success against lately. The Sabres have dropped four straight outings in Toronto, and the home team is 21-6 in the past 27 meetings. Whether it's Reimer or Bernier, use the Leafs netminder for DFS purposes.
Logan Couture, San Jose ($5500 at COL): Last week Couture was dropped to the third line. Losing his status as a top-six forward seemed to light a fire, as he has three goals with six points over his past three games, including a pair of power play assists. He is averaging 6.5 Fantasy points per game during the impressive span, yet his salary remains very reasonable.
Kyle Okposo, N.Y. Islanders ($5500 vs WPG): Okposo enters with a three-game points streak, and he is averaging a point-per-game over the past five outings. He sees plenty of time on the power play, yet he comes with a very reasonable price tag. The Jets have been subpar, allowing plenty of goals. Look for Okposo to etch his name onto the score sheet Tuesday.
Tyler Toffoli, Los Angeles ($4950 at PHI): Toffoli is coming off his most productive game of the season, posting a goal with three assists and a plus-2 rating Sunday against Columbus. He has multi-point efforts in three of his past five outings, and he has been logging plenty of time on the power play.
Kris Russell, Calgary ($3850 vs MTL): Russell has yet to light the lamp this season, but that doesn't mean he isn't valuable. He has posted six assists with a plus-5 rating, including a pair of helpers on the man advantage. And he ranks second in the NHL in blocked shots with 29, a positive stat in DFS.
