FanDuel NHL: Tuesday Value Plays
FanDuel NHL: Tuesday Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel NHL series.

It's an unusually busy Tuesday in the NHL, as there are 11 games on the slate. That means a whopping 22 teams are in actions, so you have plenty of options for your daily fantasy lineup.

Here are some recommendations…

GOALIE

Robin Lehner, NYI vs. CAR ($8,300): Lehner has been the hottest goalie in the world for the last couple of weeks. He's picked up a win in his last seven outings with a sterling 1.22 GAA and .959 save percentage. While the Hurricanes have put a lot of shots on net this year, they've only managed 2.61 goals per contest.

CENTER


Dylan Larkin, DET vs. MON ($6,700): At this point, Larkin has gone from having a hot streak to just simply having a great season. Over his last 22 games, he has 22 points, giving him 41 points this season. The Canadiens will be on the road for the second game of a back-to-back in this one, which likely means that Antti Niemi will be in net, and he has a 4.01 GAA and .881 save percentage.

Cody Eakin, VGK vs. NYR ($4,300):Paul Stastny has returned, but it hasn't hurt Eakin's offensive production. He actually has a point in four of his last five games. The Rangers have really struggled on the road this season. They have a 4.20 GAA and have allowed 36.5 shots on net per contest in away games.

WING

Alexander Radulov, DAL at STL ($6,700): Radulov and linemates Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn haven't slowed down despite criticism from the front office. In fact, the Russian has eight points in his last five games, including four with the extra man. The Blues are another team on the second leg of a back-to-back Tuesday, and even though they saved Jake Allen for this one, it likely won't matter. Over his last 12 games, Allen has a 3.21 GAA and .885 save percentage.

Tom Wilson, WAS vs. PHI ($4,900): Wilson can be a controversial player, but he's also a linemate to Evgeny Kuznetsov and Alex Ovechkin. That's helped him notch 20 points in only 22 games. The Flyers had a 3.61 GAA heading into their game Monday despite the presence of Carter Hart, who likely will rest this one.

Dominik Simon, PIT vs. FLA ($3,800): Simon is skating on a line with Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist, which certainly bodes well for his fantasy potential. On that front, he has a modest three-game point streak. Florida is another team that has had issues in away games, as it has a 3.76 GAA away from Sunrise.

DEFENSE

Rasmus Ristolainen, BUF vs. NJD ($5,200): Ristolainen has had at least 41 points in each of his last three seasons, and this year he already has 26 through 42 contests. He's also put 107 shots on net, putting him on pace to cross the 200-shot mark for the second time in his career. As for the Devils, they have a 3.82 GAA on the road. Additionally, MacKenzie Blackwood is banged up, so Keith Kinkaid may be in net. He has a 3.55 GAA and .878 save percentage in his last 14 outings.

Shea Theodore, VGK vs. NYR ($4,300): Theodore has 20 points in 44 games to go with 103 shots on net. As previously noted, the Rangers have a 4.20 GAA on the road, and have given up 36.5 shots on net per game in those contests as well, which bodes well for Theodore.
