Great Value Picks for DFS Hockey, Saturday – Doan, Marchessault and other interesting plays for Draft Kings
Top Budget Plays
Jonathan Marchessault $2800 – We have joked a bit too much when it comes trying to say his name five times fast. However, the Tampa center can play and has inched himself into a nice quasi top six slotted role. His five game point streak has us more intrigued than anything else. Some may be underestimating him a bit still and his value price makes him a must play against Columbus.
Shane Doan $3400 – Maybe the injury jolted Doan but whatever it did to the captain was a good thing. He has seven points in his last nine games and plays his favorite nemesis (the Los Angeles Kings) on Saturday. Arizona, even with awful team defense, has managed to keep it together and Doan’s recent hot stretch is a big reason for that. He has the power and size with just enough speed to keep the Kings’ forwards at arm’s length.
Olli Maatta $3400 – Though hesitation and apprehension can eat you alive in daily fantasy, Maatta has been just good enough lately to end up here. In his last six games, he has been a bit up and down but his floor is moving up to close to two DraftKings points a game. That means if he even gets an assist, he far exceeds value. Minnesota might give up a few goals on Saturday night and that makes the young defenseman a reasonably good idea.
Louis Domingue $6100 &nd
