DFS Tuesday – Josi is Money (April 12 2022)

Brad Hayward


Tough start in your week in your fantasy? Don't let that ruin your DFS bets. You only need to hit a few winners, then avoid the disasters.

GO FOR: Calgary vs. Seattle. Sure, Gaudreau (DraftKings $7600, Yahoo $32) will be expensive, but as your #1 center Elias Lindholm (DK $7000, Y $31) is an equal option to pick up, and drives that top line. Less costly, 1st power-play Rasmus Andersson ($4700/ $19), or Tyler Toffoli ($4700/ $17). Remember that a power-play assist is golden for a defenseman.

GO FOR: Roman Josi ($8800, $33).  Pretty much I don't care who Nashville plays, this guy has been money all year, and after being pointless in their last two games, he's not likely to be silent again this evening. A side bet with your buddies that he's multi-points and (+2) on Tuesday?? Worth it.

GO FOR (Goalie edition): Tristan Jarry had been my original pick, but was not Mike Sullivan’s. Casey DeSmith starts tonight instead ($7900, $28). Ok, ok, the Pens have been struggling since losing back-to-back vs. Colorado, but I look at the Evgeni Malkin-less Penguins as a cornered cat, so expect their best tonight.

CHEAP OPTIONS: Almost anyone outside top-six from Florida, think Lundell ($3500, $18), Marchment ($3600, $13), or especially Reinhart (not as cheap – $5400, $25 – but they're playing Anaheim…).  Or, Michael Bunting ($4800, $20) vs. Buffalo.

BASEMENT OPTIONS: Arizona plays at New Jersey. This is unlikely to be a tense defensive struggle. Almost anyone could get 3 points. Dawson Mercer ($3200, $12) or Sharangovich ($3600, $17) for NJ, Travis Boyd ($2700, $13) or Shayne Gostisbehere ($4800, $15) for AZ.  I mean, someone has to balance out the star players!!

NO, NO: STAY AWAY from: Boston/St. Louis, Edmonton/Minnesota.  Unless you bet on Roulette wheels, these are the unpredictable duo tonight. Winners? Score? More likely to major in PIM. Rangers/Carolina might fit here, too.

TAKING MY OWN ADVICE (or not): I usually bet DFS on Yahoo, but might make the transition soon. My lineup: Lindholm, Boyd, Adrian Kempe ($18), Toffoli, Lucas Raymond ($15), Josi,
