Whether you’re American and celebrated Thanksgiving this past Thursday or Canadian and celebrated Thanksgiving in October: All of us have plenty to be thankful for. Now that all of the turkey and booze has had some time to digest, we can now focus our minds on hockey. Yesterday was an amazing day for NHL DFS, and I’m hoping for another great day today. There is one afternoon game between the Caps and Rangers at MSG followed by an even 10 games for the main slate. Mikko Rantanen will look to pad his impressive NHL point lead when the Avs host the Stars while David Pastrnak aims to overtake Jeff Skinner for the NHL goal lead when the Bruins and Canadiens meet for the 921st time (NHL record) in NHL history. Let’s take a look at some players who have been red hot as of late and can be used in your lineups this Saturday.

 

C – Mark Scheifele (DK $6,600, FD $8,100)

Scheifele has averaged the third-most FanDuel fantasy points per game over the last two weeks while averaging the fourth-most DraftKings fantasy points per game in the same length of time. Aiding Scheifele’s consistent production is the fact that only one forward in the NHL has averaged more ice time per game than him this season. Scheifele and the Winnipeg Jets have a date with a Blues team that has been in the bottom half this season in terms of giving up both regular scoring chances and high danger scoring chances. Their goaltending duo of Allen and Johnson have failed to bail them out too as the Blues are also a bottom half team in save percentage in scoring chances and high danger scoring chances. Scheifele and his over a point per game average through the last three seasons make for a solid play tonight.

 

W – Alexander Radulov (DK $7,000, FD $6,200)

The former Nashville Predators first rounder has been a top 10 winger in fantasy points per game on both DraftKings and FanDuel over the last two weeks. The Stars peppered the Senators last night
