“Lighting the Lamp” – NHL Picks – 1/15/21

Image source - Pexels.com

We’ve made it to Friday, and we’ve had some interesting results so far, but I have a good feeling about this five game main slate.  It starts at the usual time of 6:00 pm CST, so make sure your lineups are set by then.

Also, please be sure to check services like Left Wing Lock or Daily Face Off to verify there has been no last minute line shuffling going on. This article will discuss the one offs you can plug into your lineups to compliant your stacks and ensure your lineup finishes in the green.

Our members will be discussing the slate, lineup construction and everything else NHL DFS related in our Discord, so do yourself a favor and find your way to our premium membership page and get signed up so you won’t miss out on the edge our membership provides!

TOP SHELF

Brayden Point (TB) vs CHI

When he faced the Hawks a couple of days ago, Point registered a goal and a power play assist on four shots. Like I said previously, with Kucherov shelved, the Bolts will lean on Stamkos and Point even more than usual. Given the Hawks shoddy defense, I like the TB1 center to keep piling up points.

Auston Matthews (TOR) vs OTT

Matthews had a day his first time out this season, and facing the Sens in game two provides him with another prime opportunity to shine. OTT was the sixth worst team last season in terms of shots and goals against, and I don’t see anyone on the Sens defense who can play the role of “Matthews Stopper”

John Carlson (WAS) vs BUF

On the surface, it might seem a little strange to see a defenseman being suggested here, but John Carlson is no regular defender. In their most recent meeting (which WAS won 6-4) Carlson went for two points (one goal and one assist) on a team leading six shots on goal.

THE FIVE HOLE

Here are some players that might not be household names and who might fly under the radar that are in great spots. Here are some less well known one offs that will save you some salary and bolster your stacks.

Kevin Hayes (PHI) vs PIT

Although Joel Farabee stole the spotlight with a four point outing, Hayes was strong as well, picking up a point and an assist in the contest. Overall, the matchup for PHI2 was too sweet to ignore. Nothing has changed since then.

Evgeni Dadonov (OTT) vs TOR

I love this sneaky spot for recent Panthers cast off Dadonov. He is manning OTT2 with former Yotes center Derek Stepan and the third pick of this years draft, Tim Stuetzle. He’s coming off a season that saw him score 48 points (25 goals) in 73 games, and at a DK price of only $3100, he’s an easy pick for a value one off.
