NHL DFS Picks For November 18, 2021

Auston Matthews
TAMPA, FL - DECEMBER 13: Toronto Maple Leafs center Austin Matthews (34) shoots wide as Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevsky (88) scrambles across the goal in attempt to make a save during the first period of an NHL game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Tampa Bay Lightning on December 13, 2018, at Amalie Arena in Tampa, FL.

We were planning on going with an obvious goaltender that was going to be expensive and worth it. Then we were going to discuss some other options based on risk vs reward. Spoiler Alert: Andre Vasilevskiy is $7,700 today and we find it hard to choose anyone else. 

Here’s a focused lineup For DFS Hockey 11/18/21 (using DraftKings Values)

WingK. Connor$7,400
DefenseD. Nurse$5,800
GoalieA. Vasilevskiy$7,700

Andre Vasilevskiy.

Is it us or is Darnell Nurse getting more power play time? Honest question, we haven’t started to dig into that yet, but it would make sense given that he is paid like a power play guy should be. Barrie and Bouchard can fight for PP2. 

Kyle Connor is top 3 in the league in goals. While he stays under $8,000 he is worth an immediate grab. It would be easy to point out that his last goal was an empty netter. It’s easier to point out that that was his 10th shot of the night. Obscene amount of fantasy points on that one.

Here Is What You Get If You Sign Up For $99 For Six Months
• A whole block of amazing cheap wingers. There won’t be enough space to take them all!
• A choice between legendary Centers that will leave you with some extra cash to play with.
• Did we find you the perfect complement to Nurse? Yes, we did.

Steven Stamkos and Sidney Crosby will be first ballot Hall of Famers. If the vote were tomorrow they would both be in and no one would even blink. Stamkos continues to lead a dominant Lightning team while Crosby is getting his legs back under him after starting the season late. We called out his line and they scored a goal. They are heating up. 

Andrew MangiapaneTyler ToffoliAnthony Duclair and Jakub Voracek are an armful of toys for Christmas and we cannot even play with them all. Mangiapane has been a revelation for the Flames, Duclair is making things happen in Florida, Voracek is his classic old self with sneaky assists that set up great goals. Toffoli is on here not due to his point totals yet, but his shots. He is unloading on goaltenders and it’s just not going in. He is a goal scorer, he will be scoring goals soon.

Our daily choice between shot taker and shot blocker is Neal Pionk vs Ryan Graves. Both are affordable and should give you access to some higher end talent in your forwards. Take a peek at both. We may lean Pionk for the small amount of extra savings, but Graves is a hulk of a man with no fear. We respect the hell out of him.

We are not allowed to make all of the choices for you, but there should be more than enough there to put together another beastly squad. Good luck and have fun.

The end of the week is coming up fast. Do you have any good plans coming up? Watching hockey and winning fantasy? Yeah, us too. Please check out our Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) and give us those sweet, sweet follows. See you tomorrow.
