NHL DFS Picks For December 5, 2021

Auston Matthews continues to tear the league up. That hat trick was glorious even with that baby face of his. Generating $147,000 was impressive for Movember charity but we will miss that stache. 

The big matchup we are following today is the Tampa Bay Lightning vs the Philadelphia Flyers. The Lightning are rolling right now while the Flyers are looking to out together a complete package. 

Here’s a zippy lineup For DFS Hockey 12/5/21 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterS. Stamkos$7,100
DefenseV. Hedman $7,200
GoalieB. Elliot$8,000

Brian Elliot does not get to start too often with Vasilevskiy being the king in Tampa. They are on the tail end of a back to back and so he will get the nod tonight. He will not be winning any awards this year but he is servicable and is playing a struggling Flyers team. Now is the best time to buy Brian Elliot.

Steven Stamkos continues to hold down the fort while Brayden Point makes his recovery. Stammer is a mean machine and is the best Lightning player to own right now.

Coming in in a close second is Victor Hedman. Big man is big. He has a cannon of a shot and plays all the power play time he can get. Spend big, win big.

Tomas Hertl and Timo Meier are a pretty great stack. Hertl in particular is a steal at that price point. Timo is getting up there in price but it is for very good reason. We would normally go for Kyle Connor but the Jets have hit a slump and his cost finally caught up to him. Not the best value of the day.

For a couple cheaper options you cannot go wrong with a superstars side kick. Michael Bunting and Jesse Puljujarvi enjoy being on the wing of prolific scorers. They can pop off at any moment and will be holding those spots for awhile, no worry about them sliding down a line.

If you take both of them, you can afford a pretty solid second defenseman. Who do you think?  Mario Ferraro is the shiniest one in that pool. He costs a little more but is with the upgrade. We are also considering Mikhail Sergachev, Hedmans understudy, and Josh Morrissey of the Winnipeg Jets. He is always a trust worthy choice even if he will not be getting us a hat trick anytime soon.

All sports all day. It’s a tough life but someone has to lead it. Follow us on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) have a wonderful Sunday.
