NHL DFS Top Plays for Draftkings and Fanduel lineups 10/10/23

The NHL season is back in action, and we’re kicking off the 2023-2024 campaign with an exciting three-game slate. Today, we’ll delve into some of the top plays and value picks for your NHL DFS lineup. Let’s break down the matchups and players to watch.


Predators vs. Lightning
The Predators face off against the Lightning, who are missing their star goaltender, Andrei Vasilevskiy, for the first eight weeks of the season. This could be an opportunity to exploit Tampa’s weakened defense.

Blackhawks vs. Penguins
The Blackhawks take on the Penguins, and despite Chicago’s struggles, there are intriguing DFS options on both sides. Let’s explore some players to consider.

Kraken vs. Golden Knights
The Kraken square off against the Golden Knights. Vegas boasts a potent offense, and Seattle’s goaltending may be a vulnerability. This matchup could lead to some high-scoring opportunities.

Top Plays:

Evgeni Malkin ($6,600 DK, $6,900 FD)
Malkin offers Sidney Crosby-like production at a more affordable price. He finished just ten points behind Crosby last year and faces a favorable matchup against a struggling Chicago defense.

Jonathan Marchessault ($5,300 DK, $6,100 FD)
Marchessault, a key player in the reigning champions’ lineup, is poised for another strong season. Playing alongside Jack Eichel, he’s a solid first-liner who grinds for points.

Bryan Rust ($5,000 DK, $5,100 FD)
Rust, alongside Crosby, is a solid pick for your DFS lineup. Anytime you have Crosby setting up plays, it’s worth considering. Rust may not have massive numbers but is a valuable addition.

Juuse Saros ($7,300 DK, $7,400 FD)
Saros is an elite goaltender with strong defensive support in front of him. Facing a top-heavy Lightning squad without Vasilevskiy, he could be a solid choice for your goaltending slot.

Value Plays:

Cody Glass ($3,500 DK, $4,800 FD)
Glass emerged as a valuable contributor for Nashville down the stretch last season. With Tampa’s defense in question, Glass is a budget-friendly option with potential upside.

Ivan Barbashev ($3,800 DK, $4,900 FD)
Barbashev, now on the Knights’ top line, offers value and potential production. Facing a respectable but not invincible Seattle goaltender, he could make an impact.

Thomas Novak ($4,400)
Novak had a strong season last year and is poised for more success. With Tampa missing Vasilevskiy, Novak offers good value for your lineup.

Stacks to Consider:

Predators at Lightning
Ryan O’Reilly (C), Filip Forsberg (W), Juuso Parssinen (W)
O’Reilly has potential playing alongside Forsberg. Parssinen, as a sophomore, could make strides in this lineup.

Penguins vs. Blackhawks
Evgeni Malkin (C), Rickard Rakell (W), Reilly Smith (W)
Malkin is the star here, but Rakell and Smith offer value for this matchup.

Golden Knights vs. Kraken
Jack Eichel (C), Jonathan Marchessault (W), Ivan Barbashev (W)
This trio can capitalize on Seattle’s goaltending vulnerabilities.

In this brief overview, we’ve highlighted some top plays, value picks, and stack options for your NHL DFS lineup on 10/10/23. Be sure to check for any late-breaking news or lineup changes before finalizing your selections. Good luck with your fantasy hockey endeavors!
