Four games into the season, the New York Islanders are sitting at 3-1 and have had two good offensive showings and two not so good offensive showings. That’s what makes playing daily fantasy with this team so difficult.
We don’t know what kind of performance we’re getting just yet from this team on a night in and night out basis. Last time out, was one of those good performances.
Mathew Barzal had three points, Noah Dobson had a good night, and Semyon Varlamov was excellent again. Here are my three Islanders to watch tonight if you plan on playing DFS.
DraftKings: $7,800 | FanDuel: $8,100
Keep riding it until it doesn’t work anymore. In three starts this year, Varlamov has allowed just one goal so far. He has an unreal .988 save percentage and a 0.33 goals against average, leading the league in both categories.
Will this hold up forever? No, but like the Islanders, continue to ride Varly until it stops working.
DraftKings: $5,800 | $5,500
Jordan Eberle is a streaky player, normally starting cold and then getting hot as the season goes on. Right now, he’s on fire coming off a two-goal performance where the top line looked excellent for the Islanders.
Hopefully, the Isles top line continues to click and you can capitalize on a hot Jordan Eberle against the Devils tonight.
DraftKings: $5,200 | Fanduel: $4,400
Through four games, he has just one assist for the Islanders. It’s been a slow start but eventually, Pulock, who is the Isles number one defenseman, will start to put up some points. In Pulock’s career against the Devils, he has three points in 11 games.

If the power play can be half as functional as it was last time out, expect to find Ryan Pulock’s name on the scoresheet tonight.
