Daily Fantasy Saturday: Stars Four-Man Stack

Another Saturday and another 4-3-1 stack taking home the $10,000 first place prize in the DraftKings KickSave contest. This has been the trend over the past few weeks if you're a regular reader of this article. Last week's lineup was an Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, Michael Bunting, and Morgan Rielly four-player Leafs stack featuring that lethal top line and Rielly who quarterbacks that top power-play unit. The triple was Jared McCann, Jaden Schwartz, and Vince Dunn from the Kraken, who didn't light the world on fire with their fantasy scores, but their basement level price tags allowed the flexibility to afford the hefty tags on those Leafs. The one off in the lineup was Noah Hanifin who managed 21.6 DraftKings points. All in all, this lineup scored 177.70 points which was best among the 3,137 entries and pocketed a cool $10,000 for DraftKings user "DJSabres".

With more confirmation that the 4-3-1 build is what gives us the best chance to finish atop the leaderboards, I'll stick with trying to identify those stacks that can give us a chance to do so. With nine games on the schedule for tonight, we've got one of the larger Saturday slates in some time. This will give us plenty of options for stacks, so let's sift through a few I think stand out.   

For another perspective, be sure to give the DraftKings DFS Player Evaluator over in the Frozen Tools a look as well. All prices are from DraftKings but plays can be applied to any site.

Four-Player Stacks under $25,000

Dallas – The top line for the Stars has been one of the most productive ones in hockey for much of the season and a matchup with a Canucks team who's lost six of eight certainly isn't a spot to shy away from. Roope Hintz ($6,500) in particular is on fire with five goals over the past three games. Stack him up with Joe Pavelski ($6,300), Jason Robertson ($6,700), and John Klingberg ($5,000) to get the type of high upside but affordable four-man stack we like to look for.   

Florida – With Claude Giroux ($5,100) now in the mix and Aaron Ekblad still banged up, the Panthers have been experimenting with five forwards on their power play, which adds another boost to an already stellar top nin
