With seven games slated for this Tuesday night of DraftKings DFS Hockey, let’s take a look at the top, and value, line stacks with some elite-level scorers available for your DFS Hockey lineups:
John Tavares ($8,000) – Anders Lee ($4,800) – Ryan Strome ($4,600)
This is one of the most potent scoring lines in the NHL at the moment, with Tavares the driving force. Tavares enters this game riding a hot-streak of three consecutive multi-point games and should be a must start on any night. Lee and Strome both are riding three-game point streaks and this line has a great chance to feast on a weak backend for a Blue Jackets team that has yielded the most goals against in the league this season. The Islanders top trio will cost DFS players: $17,400.
Tyler Seguin ($8,300) – Jamie Benn ($7,600) – Patrick Sharp ($5,700)
Seguin is arguably the hottest scorer in the league at the moment. He has found the scoresheet in four straight contests while averaging almost six SOG per game over that span. Benn, points in every game so far this season, is matching his linemate point for point with eight of his own on the season, while putting 16 pucks on net. Sharp, moved up to this pairing recently, picked up his first points of the season with two assists over the weekend against Florida and should start to find twine with 17 shots on the season. The trio should thrive in a matchup with Philadelphia on Tuesday. The high scoring Dallas frontline will cost players: $21,600.
Aleksander Barkov ($5,600) – Jaromir Jagr ($5,600) – Jonathan Huberdeau ($5,900)
This line has clicked early on in the season with Jagr, the seemingly ageless wonder, powering this lines offensive output so far. Through the first five games of the season, Jagr has a very solid seven points with 12 SOG. Barkov, riding a three game scoring streak(3G, 1A, 13 SOG), is right behind the elder Jagr with six points on the year. Huberdeau broke a three game scoreless streak on Saturday and looks primed for a breakout playing on the Panthers top-line. Target this line stack in a potential scoring matchup with the Penguins for: $17,100.
Claude Giroux ($6,700) – Jakub Voracek ($6,400) – Michael Raffl ($3,900)
The Flyers top-line has underachieved so far this season with the higher priced Giroux and Voracek combining for three points through the Flyers first four games. Raffl,
moved up to this line earlier in the preseason, notched his first point on an assist on Saturday against Chicago. All three of this line found the scoresheet on Saturday in the Flyers’ win over Chicago, and will be leaned on to power the offense against the offensive juggernaut Stars. This line will be coming in for DFS players at a cool $17,000.
Martin Hanzal ($4,300) – Tobias Rieder ($4,000) – Anthony Duclair ($3,900)
The Coyotes are one of the surprises of the young season and the Hazal, Rieder, Duclair line has been the offense. Duclair, the crown jewel of the Keith Yandle trade, is living up to his prospect hype with six points (4G, 2A) in the team’s five games. Hanzal had his four-game point streak snapped over the weekend against Boston, but had managed seven assists over that streak. Rieder, the most unknown of the trio, is averaging a point per game and the trio has a great matchup against the defensively depleted Devils on Tuesday night. Expect them to be involved in the offense early and often and come in at a very affordable: $12,200.
David Backes ($5,000) – Jaden Schwartz ($5,500) – Troy Brouwer ($4,500)
Playing against Carey Price is never easy, but with Montreal’s top defense focusing on shutting down the Blues top-line of Tarasenko, Steen and Lethera, this line has a good chance to see some solid offensive chances. Brouwer, moved up to this line thanks to Paul Stastny’s injury, should fit in nicely with the physical style of Backes and Schwartz. This lines ability to play physical and crash the net area could pay dividends against the Canadiens defense. Targeting this line stack will cost DFS players: $15,000.
