The Islanders, who are winners of three in a row after having their win streak snapped, are back in action tonight in Pittsburgh. Ironically, Pittsburgh has been a team the Isles haven’t figured out all year long.
The Isles are just 2-2-2 against them this year and have given up 3+ goals in all but one of the games against them this year. With that in mind, I advise you to stay away from goalies in this one.
Here’s a look at three skaters you can look to play tonight in your daily fantasy lineup:
DraftKings: $4,500 | Fanduel: $4,500
With Mat Barzal struggling, JG Pageau has been by far the best center over the past few games. He even was the leader in ice time for forwards their last time out on Thursday. He’s coming off a 24.5 fantasy points performance with a three-point night and I think the third line stays hot.
In his last 10, he has nine points (2 goals, 7 assists). Keep riding that line until it stops working.
DraftKings: $3,400 | Fanudel: $4,000
I’m still not sure why DraftKings continues to seep on Oliver Wahlstrom, but take advantage. He had 13 fantasy points in the win over Boston on Thursday and has four goals in the last five games.
The line is clicking right now, and he continues to get multiple chances a game. He’s a lock for me right now in DFS.
DraftKings: $3,500 | Fanduel: $4,200
No! Not all three guys from the third line! Yes, we’re getting nuts today with the DFS article. He’s gone three games in a row with a goal and has put up 12+ fantasy points in each of his last three contests.
We know Anthony Beauvillier is a streaky player but this is the perfect time to capitalize on his hot streak before he goes ice cold again.
