I’m done picking goalies! Not that either Ilya Sorokin or Semyon Varlamov aren’t good fantasy plays, I just genuinely have no idea who is starting for the Islanders anymore (for now). Barry Trotz just has me in a pretzel trying to figure out who is starting.
Tonight, the Islanders will be in Boston taking on the Bruins who haven’t played since March 18, exactly one week ago. You’d have to imagine they’re going to be a little rusty coming into action tongiht.
As for the Islanders, after suffering back-to-back losses they’ve since won two games against Philly. Here’s who you can look for in daily fantasy today:
DraftKings: $3,600 | Fanduel: $4,000
I’m sorry I doubted you, Ollie. For the first time in a while, I didn’t include him on my daily fantasy outlook last time out and I got burned. Not falling for that one again. Give me Wahlstrom and his shot for under $4,000 in value.
He’s double digits in fantasy points in each of his last four games and has five points over that span. The kid is on fire.
DraftKings: $3,800 | Fanduel: $4,200
Anthony Beauvillier is as streaky as it gets and right now, he’s hot. He has 15.8 and 12.8 fantasy points in his last two contests including two goals in that span. Fully expect Beau to go on one of those runs where he scored like six goals in four games so let me in before he goes ice cold again.
Plus, especially on DraftKings, he gives you some solid value at under $4,000.
DraftKings: $4,300 | $4,400
Today’s the day. Through 33 games, somehow Ryan Pulock doesn’t have a goal. He’s averaging just over two shots per game, but has yet to beat an opposing netminder. This can’t continue can it?
With Wahlstrom and Beau as safer bets, I’m willing to go out on more of a limb for Pulock. He’s gone six games straight without a point.
