We’ve got a new twist on how we are going to tempt you to become a subscriber. As you may know we charge $99 per year for an all-access pass to all of our DFS advice (NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, NASCAR, PGA and League of Legends). To guarantee your success we even offer you your first month free to make sure you love before you pay us for the year. What’s new at is that we are going to give you more guidance towards lineups for free and then other guidance and or possible lineups for subscribers on the other side.

Last night’s games already showed us how crazy this season is going to be. The fewest goals scored in one of the games was five and the Canadiens and Maple Leafs almost put up ten on each other. There are going to be a lot more this season and we are gunning for the studs who will consistently light the lamp. We have a couple for free for you and a few more behind the paywall that you may be unaware of as we have been following more than just the NHL in terms of player development. Yes we are that big of hockey nerds that we pay attention to the European and Russian leagues. Trust us it will only make your team stronger. 

Here’s a Goal Scoring Oriented Lineup For DFS Hockey 1/14/21 (using DraftKings Values)

         C       __________                            $5,300 (DK)

         C       __________                            $5,600 (DK)

         W      A. Ovechkin                          $8,500 (DK)

         W      __________                            $3,500 (DK)

         W      Z. Kassian                            $3,400 (DK)

         D       J. Carlson                             $6,900 (DK)

         D       __________                            $5,600 (DK)

         G       __________                            $8,300 (DK)

         U       __________                            $2,900 (DK)

Our Ovechkin and Carlson stack is a pair that has been itching to score goals after an unceremonious loss early in the bubble playoffs of 2020. Carlson is not particularly known for defense but fantasy does not care about that. You want to score points and that is what these guys do.

Zack Kassian is the second cheapest option on this list but do not let that fool you. His upside is huge being placed on a line with Connor McDavid. He already has an assist on the season which just solidifies his potential. You will not get a deal like this often. Buy now.

Now what do you get if you sign up for $99 now?
• A couple top line forwards that not enough people talk about.

• The goalie you want to anchor your lineup.
• Two rookies that are hungry to win.
• Another defenseman that is about to make a name for himself.

Elias Lindholm – C ($5,300 DK) was one of the bright spots in an underwhelming season for the Flames. Just about everyone around him regressed but he continued to show why he was a first round pick in 2013. He plays every position and does whatever is asked of him. All he does is produce. 

Logan Couture – C ($5,600 DK) is not the most expensive center on the draft board but that is because it has been a long time since he has played. Injuries ended his season earlier than the pandemic but he is the best forward on a shallow San Jose team. With all the time he has had to heal he will be putting the team on his back again in no time.

Jack Studnicka – W ($3,500 DK) will be filling in for David Pastrnak on the Bruins top line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron. Do I need to say more? He is a top prospect in the Bruin’s system and showed up in the playoffs last year. Just like Kassian you can’t find better value with these linemates.

Kirill Kaprizov – W ($2,900 DK) is a rookie by NHL standards but he is no kid. He has been putting up spectacular numbers in the KHL (Russian Super League) for the past few years and was well over a point per game last year. For nearly the minimum price you only have upside with a potential superstar on your team. 

Ryan Pulock – D ($5,600 DK) shone for the Islanders during their playoff run. He was weighed down by Devon Toews last year who took a lot of power play time away from him. He is the top dog now and just signed a shiny new contract. He is going to get a lot of ice time and he likes to get involved in the play. 

Tuukka Rask – G ($8,300) is often maligned by Boston fans but his numbers do not lie. He is an elite goaltender and will be playing against the middling Devils. New Jersey has a bright future with all their youth and potential but they will not be figuring out Tuukka anytime soon. If that is not enough, don’t forget that the Bruins have one of the most potent offenses in the league. 

Alternative Moves…

• Bo Horvat ($6,300 DK) has already scored a goal and was lighting the lamp in the playoffs last year. Everyone looks at Elias Petersson as the top guy in Vancouver except Bo has the C on his chest and you can save a few hundred bucks and keep loading up on other goal scorers.

• Jacob Markstrom ($7,900 DK) is in a new home in Calgary and will have to get used to the new digs but he is a top tier goaltender. If you want to save $400 on Tuukka go for it and upgrade another player on our list. He is certainly an upgrade from David Rittich.

• Andrei Svechnikov ($6,600 DK) is another offensive dynamo you can’t go wrong with.

• Chris Kreider ($5,700 DK) is not a household name yet but plays on the Rangers top line with Mika Zibenejad and just signed a hefty contract to go with his universal tool kit. He is a strong player that is very consistent and plays with world class talent.

• Neal Pionk ($5,100 DK) is still the top power play guy in Winnipeg and will hopefully have some of his workload spread around a slightly improved defense. He did everything for the Jets last year and we are looking at him to concentrate his efforts without having to shoulder all the responsibility. 

This season is going to be wild. For the next 116 days you will be able to play action packed Daily Fantasy and we are here to support you. Why spend hours on research when a few bucks our way will get you all the bragging rights you deserve?

We would love to hear about your successes. Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) is a good place for that. 

Best of luck and have fun!
