NHL DFS Picks for Feb. 5th

*All DFS picks geared toward the Fanduel platform. Fanduel uses a salary cap of $55,000.

Center – Ryan Strome

As if the Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t already give up enough goals, now they are currently without net-minder Frederik Anderson. Strome is having the best season of his career since 2014-2015 in his sophomore campaign with the New York Islanders. Since Strome centers a line featuring Artemi Panarin, and in addition comes with first power play unit exposure, his $5100 price tag is a bargain.

Wing – Zach Hyman

Hyman has accrued five points in his last five games with two goals and three assists. Although Hyman finds himself on the second power play unit, he still skates on the first line for the Maple Leafs with Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner. In his career against the New York Rangers, Hyman has found the back of the net five times. In fact, that is the highest total goals scored against any team he has played against in his career. Hyman is another bargain at $5400.

Defenseman – Tyson Barrie

Barrie was a pick of mine last week, and we’re going to double down on him again this week. With six points in his last five games, his scoring touch has gone up since Morgan Rielly went down with an injury. Barrie is still at the point on the Maple Leafs power play, and has at least one shot per game in his last five. In Barries last two contests, Barrie has had over 28 minutes of ice time. Keep plugging Barrie into your lineup at only $5500.

Goaltender – Jaroslav Halak

With Tuuka Rask in net for the Bruins Tuesday night against the Canucks, Halak will get the nod in net Wednesday night. Since there are only two games on tap tonight, lets spend up on Halak at $8500 against the Chicago Blackhawks. In his career against Chicago, Halak owns an 8-2 record, with a .929 save percentage and 2.13 goals against average. The Bruins are on a roll, winning four of their last five games. Expect the good times to keep rolling as the Bruins head to Chicago.
