The best options for Daily Fantasy Hockey this Saturday, October 10th.

Top Budget Plays

Centers

Mattias Janmark $3,000 – Values are all over the place on Saturday with the huge slate but Janmark is playing with Ales Hemsky, who looks rejuvenated this year for the Dallas Stars. These two players showed solid chemistry on Thursday and they will continue to see a pretty good amount of ice time together. If Hemsky keeps making plays, Janmark will keep finishing them. Colorado could have some significant problems against this young and emerging forward. Do not be surprised if he sees the scoresheet once more.

Wingers

Sergei Plotnikov $3,000 – With lots of value risks across the board, Plotnikov dropped a little on quite a few depth charts after an underwhelming performance on Thursday night. He actually looked a little lost for the first time in his NHL career. These things do tend to happen but the Penguins get an Arizona team on the back end of back to back games. That should yield some fruit here as the Evgeni Malkin line may be one to keep an eye on. They were considerably snake bitten against Dallas.

Defensemen

Paul Martin $3,000 – There is a lot of risk here but Martin looked like a much different defenseman in the Peter DeBoer system. He even provided a little offensive upside to boot along with the usual blocked shot potential. Martin looked very much at peace playing with Brent Burns. Game number two is going to be a steep test against the Anaheim Ducks. The defenseman is also seeing power play time and that is encouraging at the least. It is a low risk, moderate reward
