St. Patrick’s Day brings eight games in the NHL. The Lightning visit the Stars and the Rangers travel to L.A. to play the Kings. Also, the Maple Leafs host the Panthers. Will the run on underdogs continue or is it safe to bet against Toronto now?
Last night’s experiment worked as we scored 35.1 FPP, chalking up another cash game win. We’ll try to keep it going and secure a winning week before the weekend even starts.
Toronto has beaten up on what seemed like solid goalie picks a couple of times this week, so we’re paying up for Fleury in a good home matchup. The bulk of the remaining salary is sitting at center with Crosby and Spezza.
*Update from Chris (3:55 p.m. EST): Fleury is not starting tonight. We’re working on an update shortly. (6:10 p.m. EST): It is with much trepidation I swapped in Luongo. Because apparently I want to give Toronto a third chance to beat me this week…
Be sure to always check your lineups before they lock. Sometimes late injuries, scratches, etc. can cause some great values to be unlocked right before the NHL puck drops. If you want to win, you really need to check your fantasy lineups frequently on game day. Just use my lineup as a template to start your DFS research.
