THESE EIGHT COULD BE GREAT
Ian Cole, D, St. Louis ($3489 vs PHO): Cole is an ultra-low priced option worth using if you want to allocate salary elsewhere. He is scoreless in three games with a plus-2 rating, but will draw in with D Jordan Leopold (hand) sidelined.
Nathan Gerbe, LW, Carolina ($6224 vs COL): Gerbe has been a high-energy player with a low price tag. Lately, he has even been getting into dust-ups trying to spur his team along. In 17 games, he has averaged a little more than two Fantasy points per night. He isn't going to wow you, but is a nice roster option who can save you money to spend heavily elsewhere.
Jaroslav Halak, G, St. Louis ($19146 vs PHO): Halak will be in between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Coyotes. He has a 9-2 record with a 2.17 GAA and sparkling .920 save percentage, but is well down the list in terms of daily Fantasy salary. Jump on this opportunity, even though the Coyotes are no slouch and a win is far from a sure thing.
Jan Hejda, D, Colorado ($8358 at CAR): Hejda has posted two goals and just five points, but he has a plus-16 rating through 16 games. And he has managed 33 blocked shots this season, helping Fantasy owners on a nightly basis.
Brock Nelson, C, N.Y. Islanders ($4767 vs NSH): Nelson popped in a power play marker in Sunday's game in Montreal, subbing for the injured LW Thomas Vanek (upper-body) on the top scoring line. If Vanek sits again, Nelson is a tremendous low-salary target.
Mathieu Perreault, C, Anaheim ($8863 at FLA): Perreault is a solid play regardless of the health of others, but he really could see a boost if C Ryan Getzlaf ($17059) (upper-body) sits again.
Alexander Steen, RW, St. Louis ($17011 vs PHO): Steen streaks into this game with points in 10 consecutive games, and he has been blanked just once in 15 outings this season. In fact, he has at least one goal in 12 of his 15 outings this season. He is unlikely to keep up this kind of scoring pace, but strike while the iron is hot. Lately he has been a sure thing.
John Tavares, C, N.Y. Islanders ($13779 vs NSH): Tavares posted helpers on both of his team's goals in Montreal Sunday, and he now has seven goals and 20 points with an even rating through 18 games. At nearly a point-per-game clip, he is a solid addition on most nights, but especially against a banged up Nashville team down to its reserve goaltenders.
Ryan Getzlaf, C, Anaheim ($17059 at FLA): Getzlaf (upper-body) is dealing with the dreaded upper-body injury, and he is a huge question mark for the game after sitting Sunday in Vancouver. The Ducks will be a little light down the middle, as C Saku Koivu (head) also did not travel for the game.
Thomas Vanek, LW, N.Y. Islanders ($8874 vs NSH): Like Getzlaf, Vanek (upper-body) is dealing with the ol' UBI as well. He missed Sunday's game, and is not worth the risk for Tuesday's battle against the Predators. Even if he does play, he hasn't been dealing a whole heck of a lot.
