Islanders: 3 Players To Watch In Daily Fantasy 1-16-21
By Matt O'Leary
The New York Islanders are back in action tonight as they are taking on their rival New York Rangers for the second time in three days. After an impressive 4-0 win in the opener, will the team be able to replicate their performance?
The Isles got two goals from Anders Lee, a good performance from Mathew Barzal, and solid play in net from Semyon Varlamov picking up where he left off in the playoffs last year.
If you’re looking for some daily fantasy options from the Islanders for tonight, here’s some guys that I would take a look at.
DraftKings: $2,900 | Fanduel: $3,500
If you play on DraftKings especially you’re getting some sick value on Noah Dobson at just $2,900. In the opener, Dobson played 20:13 and got a significant chunk of time on the power play picking up an assist along the way.
Expect his ice time to remain in the 20-minute range with his power play usage. I can see him continuing to produce points on the man advantage for this team.
DraftKings: $5,000 | Fanduel: $5,400
In the opener, Eberle played just 15:20 and picked up an assist along the way. Both of his linemates combined for three goals and when that line is hot it usually goes on a little bit of a run. Expect Eberle to be putting up points for the next little while here and I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he popped in a goal tonight.
DraftKings: $5,100 | Fanduel: $5,600
I’m doubling down on Anthony Beauvillier. I know I picked him last go around too but with his career numbers against the Rangers I’m willing to be on him finding some production here tonight. In 15 career games vs the Rangers, Beauvillier has 16 points (9 goals, 7 assists).

He played 17:50 on opening night and picked up an assist. Don’t be surprised if he finds the back of the net tonight.
