We hope you got to follow the games we mentioned yesterday. The Red Wings comeback against the Sabres was legendary and it just so happens we took five players from that game and they combined for nine points and over 20 shots. You dig? We are going to be scaling back what we give out for free because we have been a little too generous. The goods are all still here, you are just going to have to pay for them.

Here’s a thrifty lineup For DFS Hockey 11/7/21 (using DraftKings Values)

CenterR. O’Reilly$5,900
GoalieJ. Binnington$8,200
UtilityN. Roy$3,900

Robin Lehner came back huge last night after going down 0-2 to start the game. He busted out a 35+ save win and did not let another one by him. What a beauty. Jordan Binnington today is the beneficiary of a solid matchup. We do not want to crap talk the Ducks too much since they are currently sporting a winning record, but this Blues team is dominating right now.

Ryan O’Reilly has quietly slipped off people’s minds as he spent the last couple weeks on Covid protocol. That the Blues have been doing as well as they have without him is a testament to how deep their squad is. They will be very happy he is back though and he will look to get back to business ASAP.

If there is one thing we are good at it is noticing when players get bumped to higher lines and capitalizing on it. Normally we put this behind the curtain, but since we are pulling back on some other information, we offer up to you Nicolas Roy. First line center for the ever dangerous Golden Knights.

Here Is What You Get If You Sign Up For $99 For Six Months
• A platter of wingers to feast on
• Expert analysis of alternate goalie selections
• Your finger on the pulse of the sports of your choice. Our writers are dialed in and hitting home runs, throwing touchdowns, laying up buckets and eagling all our picks. 

Both the Vegas Golden Knights and the Detroit Red Wings had comeback wins last night and are now playing back to backs against each other. What does this tell us? Two sort of tired teams who will be playing hard, but may not see a high scoring game. We are keeping an eye on Brossoit and Nedeljkovic. Brossoit’s price is probably too high just because of his team and not necessarily based on his skill. Therefore if you are trying to save and take on a little risk at the same time, Alex Nedeljkovic is your guy.

Another note on goalies as we transition to winger here. Semyon Varlamov is probably getting his first start of the season today. He was playing Vezina level hockey last year but it has been a minute since he is in net. Give him a game or two to see how well he does. In the meantime Kirill Kaprizovis going to try and tear Varly to shreds! He may not yet be worth his NHL salary but he sure is trying. The assists look great but he could use some more goals. Now where might he find those?

The block of these dudes is screaming at us today. Conor GarlandAnthony Beuavillier, and Adam Henrique. Beauvillier did score three assists in one game, so do not over hype his near PPG totals, but do not discount him either. Garland has been fitting in nicely in Vancouver now that he has escaped Arizona. And Adam Henrique is lighting it up thirteen years after he was drafted. You can maybe only afford one, so go after the matchup or player you feel the most.        

For the next wave of wingers we found another block that is very shiny and where we believe the numbers lie a little. Evgeni DadonovMarcus Foligno, and Luke Kunin. Dadonov has been playing well with Chandler Stephenson, Foligno just goes and outworks everyone every night and Luke Kunin is heating up quicker than you realize. We are actually leaning towards Kunin with this matchup against Blackhawks backup Lankinen. Can we go so far as to call Kunin making Seth Jones look like a fool?

Oh were you looking for defense too? Some combination of Miro HeiskanenColton Parayko, Mo Friggin Seider, and Adam Pelech ought to fill you up. That’s enough words for today! 

How do you like our new format? We are always tweaking to find the best balance of value for you guys. Email us or hit us up on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) if there’s anything you’d like to see, or if you had a great night, let us know! Take care.
