Best NHL DFS Picks for November 25, 2017
NHL DFS Centers
Mitch Marner vs. WSH (6.1k DraftKings, 4.4k FanDuel)
It’s a rematch of last year’s Eastern Conference first round matchup, and Mitch Marner is the guy to pick. He’s tallied three points in the last five contests. Marner is playing on the same line with Auston Matthew, so he has a great chance of getting you some points. The London Knight product has produced 16 points in 24 games with 14 helpers. He’s recorded one goal and five assists on the power-play.
Artem Anisimov @ FLA (5.1k DraftKings, 5.6k FanDuel)
Artem Anisimov has been playing like a number one center for the Chicago Blackhawks. He’s put 10 past the netminder while handing out three assists. Plus, he’s been lethal on the power-play, tallying five goals with the man advantage. Florida has been terrible on the defensive end, allowing 3.43 goals a contest. The Russian center has put up six points in the last five contests and is responsible for a ridiculous four game-winners this season.
Mikael Backlund @ COL (5.7k DraftKings, 5.1k FanDuel)
Mikael Backlund’s been quietly productive for the Calgary Flames. He’s sniped five goals this year while totaling 14 points. In the last five contests, he’s collected four points while firing 12 shots on net. He’s also scored once on the power-play, and Calgary’s always dangerous with the man advantage.
Others to consider: Eric Staal, Sean Monahan, Logan Couture

NHL DFS Wingers
Reilly Smith vs. SJS (4.6k DraftKings, 5.3k FanDuel)
Every player on the Vegas Golden Knights has a reason to prove the doubters wrong. Reilly Smith is no different and has been great for the Vegas, registering 17 points with six goals. On the power-play, he’s put three past the goaltender while tallying three assists. Smith’s collected five points in the last five contests.
Jesper Bratt vs. DET (4.5k DraftKings, 4k FanDuel)
Jesper Bratt is a cheap add for your team with the potential to light it up any time. Bratt’s recorded 14 points in 21 games. He’s done some damage on the power-play, scoring three goals and assisting on four. He sniped one last time out against the Bruins and should be in your lineup against the Red Wings.
Dustin Brown vs. ANA (6k DraftKings, 5.7k FanDuel)
The former captain of the LA Kings is putting up big numbers to start the season. Dustin Brown has eight goals and 11 helpers in the 22 games. Brown gets power-play minutes, and he’s put up four goals with the man advantage. He isn’t afraid to lay the body as he’s dished out more hits (67) than shots (62).

NHL DFS Defensemen
Kris Letang vs. TBL (5.7k DraftKings, 6.6k FanDuel)
Kris Letang is the definition of a mobile defenseman, and the Penguins aren’t the same team without him. He has a total of 16 points with 15 helpers. Letang is the quarterback of the powerplay, dishing out eight assists when the Penguins have the man-advantage. In his last five contests, he’s tallied five assists and totaled 16 shots on net.
Tyson Barrie vs. CGY (4.7k DraftKings, 4.9k FanDuel)
Tyson Barrie’s been great for the rebuilding Avalanche. He’s collected 16 points in 19 games with 14 assists. He gets power-play minutes and has six points in that mode. In the last five contests, Barrie has recorded three helpers and 13 shots on net.
Mike Green vs. NJD (4.5k DraftKings, 4.5k FanDuel)
Mike Green has found the offensive touch in Detroit this season. He has 17 points in 23 games with 16 assists. With the man advantage, Green’s dished out nine assists for the Red Wings. He’s totaled three assists in the previous five contests and all of them have been on the power-play.

NHL DFS Goalies
Jake Allen vs. MIN (8.2k DraftKings, 8.4k FanDuel)
Jake Allen’s been a pleasant and dominating surprise for the St. Louis Blues. He’s put up a 2.74 goals against average and .909 save percentage. He’s 12-5-1 this year, won three games in a row and made at least 23 saves in those three contests. The Wild will be on the second night of a back-to-back, so it should be a perfect matchup for Allen.
Darcy Kuemper vs. ANA (7.9K DraftKings, 7.4k FanDuel)
Darcy Keumper’s been a great back-up for the Kings and has a great matchup against the Ducks. He’s recorded a .943 save percentage and his goals-against average is 1.62. One of his three wins was a shutout, and he’s made at least 24 saves in those victories. Anaheim only scores 2.76 goals a game while LA is ranked second in the league in goals against at 2.36.
