After a dominant 6-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers, the Islanders are back in action on the road in Philly. After another strong offensive performance, the team finds themselves in 12th for scoring in the league.
With the Islanders play in net and on the blue line, they’re fourth in the league in goals against, that’s a great sign to see them that productive offensively. Even in the absence of Anders Lee, the driving force of the offense, they responded well.
Here are three guys you should consider in your daily fantasy lineup today:
DraftKings: $7,900 | Fanduel: $8,300
We’re coming off two starts in a row with a sub-.900 save percentage, which is just downright bizarre for Semyon Varlamov this year. He’s now sporting a .923 save percentage and a 2.17 goals against average on the season.
He’s been solid for the Isles all year and would be downright stunned if we get three tough starts in a row.
DraftKings: $3,300 | Fanduel: $4,200
The assist GAWD himself, Nick Leddy has been a points machine for the Isles this year. He has 20 assists in 32 games. For reference, he had 18 in 60 games last year and 22 in 82 games the year prior.
He was relatively quiet in the big win on Saturday so I think he’ll get back to his productivity for the Islanders from the blue line.
DraftKings: $5,100 | FanDuel: $5,800
Jordan Eberle got the monkey off his back scoring his 10th goal of the season on Saturday after not scoring for nine straight games. Usually, when Jordan starts to have goals fall they come in bunches.

While I’m not positive if Leo Komarov returns to the top line with him and Mat Barzal, it shouldn’t make too much of a difference for him.
