If you guys didn't see our Tweet on Friday, because there was only three games we didn't want to do a Draft Kings Player Spotlight due to the small variety of players, but to make up for it, we have a big one today with a bonus player. So enough with the Intro, let's get into it.
Nicklas Bäckström (C): Washington Capitals - 5,900
Even though the Capitals lost to the Penguins in a shootout, it was a great start to the season for Nicklas Bäckström as he bagged two assists. The biggest factor for this pick is the Islanders, if the Rangers can put five goals past your team what can this Capitals Team do. With Bäckström playing with Ovechkin and on the Power Play he will do what he does best which is assist and with a small fee of 5,900, he is a great pick.
Andrew Shaw (W): Montreal Canadiens - 4,200
The hatable Andrew Shaw is going to have a great game against the Ottawa Senators as their defense and goaltending are so weak this game is guaranteed to have goals. Shaw has two goals in seven game against the Senators and I see his goal tally against the Sens going up in this one. This just won't be a great game for Shaw but his whole team
I would also bet on the Canadians flat out.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson (D): Arizona Coyotes - 6,000
OEL and the Arizona Coyotes host the Philadelphia Flyers in a game that will showcase many young NHL talent. Even though the Flyers are a better team I feel with them playing such a late game against the Kings then hopping on a plane could mess with their legs for this game (especially when I see this one being fast paced). Lastly, 6k for an ELITE D-man is a great deal that gives you some flexibility with your forwards.
Martin Jones (G): San Jose Sharks - 8,200
Martin Jones and the Sharks go to Columbus in what should be a defensive game. Looking from the view of the Blue Jackets, they got crushed in their first game of the season, and John Tortorella will not want to be even more embarrassed (than he already has) which means I can't see the Blue Jacket getting many opportunities on Martin Jones. But what this comes down to is that the Sharks are a great team with a top defense, and the Blue Jackets aren't that good.
REM Salary: 25,700
