NHL DFS Picks For February 1, 2022

Cale Makar DFS

Might the Florida Panthers actually lose one here? They had a crazy night against the Blue Jackets yesterday winning 8 – 4. They let in more goals than they would like and are playing on a back to back against the ever scary New York Rangers. They will no doubt try and give their all with this being their last game before the All Star Break but buyer beware.

Here’s a Broadway lineup For DFS Hockey 2/1/22 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterM. Zibenejad$7,300
DefenseJ. Trouba$6,100
GoalieI. Shesterkin$7,600

If Igor Shesterkin is in net you should be grabbing him at that price. He is a top five goalie in the league right now and in all honesty probably the top three. It will not be an easy fight but this is where he shows how truly elite he is.

Mika Zibenejad is also very fairly priced for his matchup today. With Spencer Knight likely getting the nod in net, Mika should have a productive game. Knight has been a little spotty and we do not know how the defense will do after letting up four yesterday.

Jacob Trouba is top dog while Adam Fox is out. He piles on shots and blocks and will hopefully see some increased power play time as a result. This is not guaranteed so we do have another PP specialist for you behind the paywall.

We are mostly going to stay away from the Avalanche today more so to give you some different names to play with. They are still money and so is Cale Makar. He is not a cheap upgrade but he is a huge one offensively. There is no doubt who will get the choice time on the man advantage here.

The Senators also played last night but they are full of young studs and are a team that has played fewer games than most others. Tim Stutzle was on a roll last night getting a goal and a fighting major against the Oilers! We had no idea he had it in him. He gets more dangerous by the day. You can also stack another Ranger here with Ryan Strome who has been a consistent force next to Artemi Panarin and will not break the bank.

For a second defenseman we are finally getting to extol the virtues of Quinn Hughes. Last season we were all over because of his consistency, snagging us an assist a game. The year did not start well for the Canucks but Hughes is back! We are also looking at Rasmus Andersson who has been flashing some offensive skills as of late.

A high scoring Ranger or a player playing his old team for the first time? Chris Kreider cannot stop scoring goals. On the other hand, Alex Tuch was traded away from the Vegas Golden Knights to the Buffalo Sabres in the off-season. It was out of his control so we expect the fans to embrace him warmly when he plays in Nevada tonight.

Why is Tom Wilson only $3,700? Sure he is a hit machine and those do not translate to fantasy points but he plays on a line with Alex Ovechkin and has no trouble putting plenty of shots on net himself. He is an easy way to bring your average cost down and keep all the upside.

If you want one of the sneakiest boys to take tonight, snag Michael Bunting for pennies on the dollar. He recently got his first hat trick and is on a line with Auston Matthews. You can save even more and dig deeper into the rough to find Blake Coleman. If you take them both you should have plenty leftover to upgrade Zibby or anyone else you please.

 It is the most wonderful day of the week. Did you know it takes a lot of restraint to not eat tacos every day of the week? Please hit us up on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) if you have not done so already. Hasta la Vista baby.
