NHL DFS Tournament Breakdown For DraftKings And FanDuel – 11/16/2021

NHL DFS Tournament Breakdown For DraftKings And FanDuel - 11:16:2021

After yesterday’s small two-game NHL DFS slate, today we have a solid 11-gamer to contend with. Such a big slate gives us many options and a good bit to break down. Still, it is easier in terms of lineup construction, considering we can focus on traditional 4-3 and 3-3 line stacking in tournaments. Let’s look at some of the best stacks of the day and individual plays and see how we can tackle this thing.

Top Stacks – Overall

Edmonton 1 – DraftKings: $20,300 – FanDuel: $22,300

Connor McDavid – Zach Hyman – Jesse Puljujarvi

What can you say? Anytime McDavid is on the slate, he and his linemates will be among the top options. You can also go the power-play stacking route and stack McDavid with either Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Leon Draisaitl rather than stacking the full even-strength line.

Washington 1 – DraftKings: $21,300 – FanDuel: $23,100

Alex Ovechkin – Evgeny Kuznetsov – Tom Wilson

Washington 1 is one of the top lines in hockey and tends to go under-owned due to high pricing making it hard to build around. Complete power-play correlation is an added benefit of stacking this line.

Top Stack – DraftKings Value

Montreal 1 – $13,100

Nick Suzuki – Tyler Toffoli – Josh Anderson

$13,100 is just too cheap for this even-strength first line where all three skaters skate on their team’s power-play units. Getting a team’s first line at this price enables you to pay up for a top-level stack and not have to dig into some of the lesser options on the slate.

Top Stack – FanDuel Value

Minnesota 1 – $15,600

Kirill Kaprizov – Mats Zuccarello – Frederick Gaudreau

If you want to fit in an expensive top-level stack, you will be looking for some value. Minnesota’s top line is too cheap on FanDuel for their scoring potential here.

Top Plays – Defenseman


Roman Josi – DraftKings: $8,100 – FanDuel: $7,000

Alex Pietrangelo – DraftKings: $7,400 – FanDuel: $6,800

Adam Fox – DraftKings: $7,200 – FanDuel: $7,000

Kris Letang – DraftKings: $7,000 – FanDuel: $6,200

DraftKings Value:

MacKenzie Weegar: $4,300

Mike Matheson: $3,100

Brady Skjei: $2,700

FanDuel Value:

Jakob Chychrun: $4,800

Colton Parayko: $4,000

Jeff Petry: $3,800

Top Plays – Goalie


Anton Khudobin: $8,100

Igor Shesterkin: $8,000

Sergei Bobrovsky: $7,900


Jordan Binnington: $7,900

Tristan Jarry: $7,500

Anton Khudobin: $7,400

Tournament Stack Pivots: DraftKings

We will see a lot of ownership on some prominent value stacks that enable people to fit in the EDM1s and WAS1s of the world. Some of these include NYR2, MON1, STL1, and EDM2. If you want to get off the beaten path a bit, you might consider stacking some lesser-owned values or two mid-range stacks and eschewing the expensive options. Some good lower-owned choices include SJ1, NSH1, PHI1, and MIN1.

Tournament Stack Pivots: FanDuel

An immense amount of chalk is going to land on MIN1 and MIN2 as well as PIT2. These stacks are too cheap and enable one to pay up for their other stack. Lower-owned but viable cheap and mid-range pivots include SJ1, DET1, NYI1, and MON1.
