NHL DFS Top Value Plays for Thursday 01/26/23

Devon Toews

Devon Toews is a solid option for your lineup in the Colorado Avalanche’s game against the Anaheim Ducks, especially if Cale Makar is unable to play due to an upper-body injury. Toews has stepped up in Makar’s absence, registering five assists in five games and taking on a bigger role on the power play.

Despite Makar missing Tuesday’s game, it seems like he may return after the All-Star break. Toews had an assist in Tuesday’s game and is expected to play a lot of minutes again in all situations. While Toews’ statistics are decent with 10 shots and 7 blocked shots in the last five games, his production has not been as high as expected. However, with the Ducks’ defense struggling and the possibility that Makar will not return, Toews has a good chance to produce in this favorable matchup.

Nick Schmaltz

Nick Schmaltz is a solid choice for your lineup in the Arizona Coyotes’ game against the St. Louis Blues. He recently scored a goal on eight shots, bringing his season totals to 8 goals, 16 assists, and 24 points in 32 games. Despite being hampered by injuries this season, Schmaltz is still a high-performing player, having scored 59 points in 63 games last season.

Additionally, the Blues have been struggling defensively, having given up five goals in each of their last two games against the Blackhawks and Sabres. At a low salary of $4,700 and playing at home against a struggling team, Schmaltz is a low-risk, high-reward option.

Cole Perfetti

Cole Perfetti is an excellent value pick for your lineup in the Winnipeg Jets’ game against the Buffalo Sabres. Despite being the most affordable option among the team’s highly skilled top six forwards, Perfetti is performing well. He has been hot recently with a three-game point streak, averaging a point per game over his last nine.

The 2020 first-round pick has an excellent chance to continue his recent success in a fast-paced game against a Sabres team that is giving up an average of 3.40 goals per game.

Brayden Schenn

Brayden Schenn is a great pick for your lineup in the St. Louis Blues’ game against the Arizona Coyotes. The Blues are in a favorable matchup with a high implied goal total of 3.55 and have several affordable options in their lineup. Schenn is a cost-effective option who brings solid offensive production to the table. Over the last 10 games he has recorded 7 points, 15 shots on goal, and 9 blocked shots. With his role on the second forward line and the first power-play unit, Schenn is expected to have multiple opportunities to score against the Coyotes’ weak defense.
