Friday Fanduel Fantasy Planner

by chewy 4. November 2011 08:35

Saturday means a full slate of contests for the NHL.  11 games to be exact.  Which means plenty of large contests to choose from on Fanduel.  To get you ready for the action, here is your Fantasy Hockey Planner.



Who's Hot


Teemu Selanne (ANA)

Selanne continues to defy father time.  At age 41, he remain one of the most lethal threats in the league.  He's on another hot streak right now, having registered 11 points in the last 6 games for the Ducks.  He'll cost you at $8,300, but at the moment, he's giving you your money's worth.


Scott Hartnell (PHI)

Since replacing JVR on the top line with Giroux and Jagr, Scott Hartnell is playing like a new man.  He has 2 goals and 4 assists in 3 games.  Honestly, there are 8 guys on the Flyers lineup who would produce at this level on a line with those two guys.  As long as Hartnell holds the sweet spot, he's worth a look.  If he loses that spot, forget about him.


Clarke MacArthur (TOR)

MacArthur qualifies as a value pick at the bargain price of $6k.  He's on a roll with 4 goals and 1 assist in the past 3 games.


Tomas Fleischmann (FLA)

Fleischmann just continues to overachieve.  Or maybe we're just setting the bar too low.  Over the past year, he's paced near a point a game for 3 different NHL teams, yet he continues to get very little press or respect in the fantasy world.  He's earning top line minutes with the Panthers now, and is red hot.  He's a deal at $6,600.


Radim Vrbata (PHO)

2 goals and 3 assists in the past two games, makes him worth a look in the short term.  Another value pick under $7k at the moment.  Vrbata has shown flashes of brilliance in the past, so don't write him off as a fluke on the hot list.


Jason Garrison (D-FLA)

Garrison entered the season as an unknown quantity on the Florida defense not known for putting up points.  He has goals in 3 straight games, giving him 5 already on the season.  He's valued at just $4,800 for now.


Carey Price (G-MON)

Price is 3-0 in his past 3 games with a 1.33 GAA and a .950 save percentage.  This is a major turn around from how he started the season. 




Who's Cold


Johan Franzen (DET)

One of the streakiest guys in hockey.  Following points in 4 straight, he's gone 5 now without a single point on the board.  That may just mean he's due for a 4-goal game any day now.


Gabriel Landeskog (COL)

Just one assists in his last 3 games.  Don't be surprised to see this kind of up and down behavior from the rookie throughout the year.


Jonathan Toews (CHI)

When you're paying top dollar for a forward, you expect more production than this.  He has just 1 assist in the last 4 games.


Lubomir Visnovsky (D-ANA)

Five games.  Zero points. 


Henrik Lundqvist (G-NYR)

It's been 6 games since the Rangers have gotten a win out Lundqvist.  He's sat twice in the span and has allowed 4 goals in each of his last two games.



Who's Hurt


Duncan Keith (D-CHI)

Keith is questionable at this point with an upper body injury.


Mike Fisher (NAS)

Fisher missed the early part of the season, then came out on fire, then was hurt again.  He's day to day with an upper body injury.


Evgeni Nabokov (NYI)

The injury woes never seem to leave the Islanders crease.  After a hot start, Nabokov fell with a lower body injury.  He's on the shelf for now.


Andrei Markov (D-MON)

Word is, Markov started skating again.  Stay tuned for info on his return.


Danny Briere (PHI)

Briere was operating at a point-a-game pace before going down with an upper body injury.  He remain day-to-day.


Jordan Staal (PIT)

Malkin is back, which means another star center in Pittsburgh needs to take an injury time out.  No word on a return date for Staal at this point.




Value Picks of the Week


Here are some guys currently undervalued on Fanduel that you should cash in on in the short term:


Joffrey Lupul (TOR)

Lupul is playing at a point-a-game pace and remains a great deal at $6k. He just potted his first hat trick of the season. The hockey world has waited for the breakout of Lupul for several years now.  We may finally be seeing that.


Taylor Hall (EDM)

It's got to be a matter of time before he gets respect on the salary front.  Until then, take full advantage.  He's lingering at a mere $6,100.


Milan Michalek (OTT)

$6,200 is a good price to pay for a winger with 8 goals and 13 points in 13 games.
