FanDuel NHL Fantasy Hockey Picks 2/25 | NHL DFS Strategy Fantasy Advice & Sleepers for Feb 25| FanDuel Lineup Tips for February 25
Last night, we had eleven games to choose from. Tonight, unfortunately there are only three games to work with. If you have a good handle on the teams playing tonight, there can be room to make some money though as many people on light nights get a little lazy when constructing line-ups.
Calgary @ New Jersey
Pittsburgh @ Washington
Ottawa @ Anaheim
Line-ups Lock at 7:30pm EST
Goalies I like tonight…
The confirmed goalies for tonight are: Karri Romo, Cory Schneider, Marc-Andre Fleury, Braden Holtby, Andrew Hammond. We are still awaiting for confirmation on the Ducks’ goalie, but I would expect John Gibson ($7,700) to get the call. If he does, he is an excellent play tonight, and really a no brainer in my books. On the off-chance he doesn’t go, Jason LaBarbera ($6,300) is a strong play now that the Ducks have banished Bryzy to the AHL. Braden Holtby ($8,600) is also a strong play in my books, as I do expect the Caps to pick up two points tonight.
Onto the Skaters…
You’re likely going to want to max out, or come close to maxing out on Anaheim players tonight. They have the best match-up, and are the best team out of the six teams in action tonight. C Ryan Getzlaf ($8,800), RW Corey Perry ($8,900) are their high priced buys. C Ryan Kesler ($5,200) hasn’t had great production at all – but does play major minutes for them, and the price is right.
On the value side of things, LW Patrick Maroon plays a lot in the top six for the Ducks. For $4,900 he is a good player in a strong match-up. RW Mark Stone on the flip side doesn’t have a good match-up, but he has been playing great hockey with 8 points in hist last 6 games. For $4,400 you could do much worse. Sean Monahan remains grossly mis-priced in my books for $3,600. Center has a lot of good options tonight so depending on which route you go with things, you may not be able to fit him in.
There aren’t many mid-priced buys worth a look tonight, but you’d have to consider including Nicklas Backstrom ($7,000) into your line-up, especially if you don’t go with superstar LW Alexander Ovechkin ($9,400), who is worth consideration every night.
On a light night, there will likely be many entries out there with similar players. Best of luck whatever route you decide to go!
