Best NHL DFS Picks for November 28, 2017
NHL DFS Centers
Kevin Fiala vs. CHI (4.1k DraftKings, 4k FanDuel)
Kevin Fiala’s been red hot for the Nashville Predators. In his last five contests, he recorded one goal and four assists while firing 10 shots on net. Fiala is on the second power play unit, and he’s dished out six helpers on the power play. Fiala has been great at home, tallying nine of his 14 points in Nashville.
Derek Stepan @ EDM (4.8k DraftKings, 4.1k FanDuel)
Derek Stepan’s been a great first-line centerman for the Arizona Coyotes this year. He’s recorded 15 points in 26 games while sniping three goals. In the last five contests, he’s handed out six assists while peppering the opposing netminder with 15 shots on goal. Stepan’s notched a goal and five helpers when the Coyotes have the man advantage.
William Karlsson vs. DAL (5.8k DraftKings, 6.5k FanDuel)
The Columbus Blue Jackets are probably regretting leaving William Karlsson unprotected. He’s been dominant for the Vegas Golden Knights, recording 22 points in as many games. In his last five, he’s been out of this world, tallying seven goals and three assists. The Swede is producing on special teams with two power play and shorthanded goals.

NHL DFS Wingers
Brock Boeser @NYI (6.4k DraftKings, 6k FanDuel)
Brock Boeser’s been a major reason for the Vancouver Canucks’ surprising start this year. He’s put up 22 points in 22 games while putting 11 past the netminder. The rookie has recorded five goals and put 15 shots on net in the last five contests. He’s also tallied three goals and seven assists on the PP.
Mats Zuccarello vs. FLA (5.6k DraftKings, 5.6k FanDuel)
Mats Zuccarello could be in for big day against the Florida Panthers. The Panthers are giving up 3.45 goals a game, second-worst in the league. Zuccarello has 19 points (four goals, 15 assists) in 24 games played this season. He’s got one goal and four helpers in his last five contests. Zuccarello leads the first power play unit and has dished out eight helpers on the PP.
Matthew Tkachuk vs. TOR (4.5k DraftKings, 5.6k FanDuel)
Matthew Tkachuk is a super pest, but he can also get you some points in daily fantasy. The left winger’s put up 16 points in 24 games. He sees ice time on the second power play unit and has dished out four helpers while sniping one goal. He has three assists in the last five games, and this should be a high-scoring affair as both teams give up around three goals a game.
Others to consider: Rick Nash, Dustin Brown, Clayton Keller
