Islanders: 3 Players To Watch In Daily Fantasy 1-30-21
By Matt O'Leary
The Islanders are on a three-game skid after starting their season 3-1. With 14 goals in seven games they are 29th in the league in scoring while being top-10 (6th) in goals against with just 17.
Right now, outside of the top line, the Islanders forwards have been dead quiet. The top line has been solid, especially Mathew Barzal but other than that it’s been pretty rough for the forward group.
With that in mind, here’s who I would consider in daily fantasy today against the Philadelphia Flyers:
DraftKings: $6,500 | Fanduel: $6,700
For a point per game player this is insane value. As I mentioned the only line I trust right now is line one. Line three is a revolving door, the fourth line has been useless and without Anthony Beauvillier, line two has been quiet.
Don’t overthink it. Yes, it’s a chalk play but if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
DraftKings: $5,800 | Fanduel: $7,100
Lee is tied for the team lead in goals with three. He’s also been much improved on the power play, which is something he struggled with mightily in 2019-2020. Due to the Isles offensive struggles the only other forward I’ll give you is on the first line with Barzal. Remember, in the playoffs, Lee had four goals against Philly.
DraftKings: $3,600 | Fanduel: $3,500
If they’re going to keep giving you good value on Noah Dobson keep taking it. He has five points in seven games for the Islanders and his ice time is through the roof compared to last season. He’s getting 19:07 a night vs just 13:17 last season.

After a clunker on Thursday, stay away from the Islanders goalies. I’d maybe consider playing Jordan Eberle as well but right now, these are the three guys I’m most confident in heading into tonight’s action.
