If you get a chance go and check out the highlights for the Minnesota Wild vs Winnipeg Jets game. That may have been the best game of the season so far. It had a ton of goals, heated battles and a superman punch in a fight! We also hope you went with the goalie behind the paywall. He had 35+ Saves and got the win for us. It was exactly what we expected with the high risk producing the reward we were hoping for. Today there are two matchups with the Boston Bruins facing the Philadelphia Flyers and the St. Louis Blues will go up against the Vegas Golden Knights.

We only have four goalies to choose from today so we are going to be very careful here. Jordan Binnington is not always our first choice, but it is important to know that the Knights are missing their top two stars in Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty.

That means that a guy like Ryan O’Reilly is going to be ready to feast. His point totals do not always leave you amazed, but he is a fantastic two way player who will capitalize on the easier matchups.

We will be stacking ROR with David Perron who has been ageing like a fine wine. He has continued to see top line and power play time and has been producing. They should take it to the house tonight.

Matt Grzlyck is always in the mix to get power play time and we want to make sure we get in while the getting is good. After Charlie McAvoy signed his big payday we think that signals that he will be the primary quarterback on the man advantage. It has not fully happened yet, so save some cash and take Grz to squeeze some value out of him.

Now what do you get if you sign up now?
• A balance between two big defensemen
• A higher ceiling centerman than O’Reilly

• Access to our entire site for only $99! That gets you six months so you do not have to overcommit.

William Karlsson will be moving up to top line center. That is interesting because VGKs top center is healthy and is being moved to second line wing. Karlsson is playing with Jonathan Marchessault who is another winger to give serious consideration to. His first goal of the year was a beauty and these two never back down from a challenge.

Taylor Hall is coming in at a very reasonable price these days. Sure he does not have David Krejci as his middleman anymore but he drives play by himself and is not too dependent on that. You can also save some more cash by going with Craig Smith who plays well with Hall. Most fans will tell you that Charlie Coyle needs to have a big bounce back year. That should start tonight.

For a cheap option go check out Oskar Lindblom. He will likely end the year in the top six as the the young man continues to grow and make his comeback from beating cancer. He is highly skilled and cannot be kept quiet for long.

Short and sweet today with the two games. Please follow us on Twitter (@FantasyDFSX) and we we hope you have a great rest of your week.
