Fantasy Hockey: 10/19/21 Daily Fantasy Lineup

Welcome to a new piece that I will be doing twice a week for fantasy hockey content here with Couch Guy Sports. I will be putting together my daily fantasy lineup to put on FanDuel and let us try and win some money together. So the competition I am doing for the entire slate of games for tonight. The lineup will be composed of two centers, two wingers, two defenseman, two utilty players and a goaltender that fit within the salary of $55,000. Now with that being said here is my lineup for tonight’s games.

Center: Jack Hughes $6600

Jack Hughes started off the season with a great first game scoring two goals and he scored a beautiful game winning goal in overtime. Tonight he goes up against a Kraken team that will start their backup goaltender. Seattle also allows 3.75 goals per game so Hughes has a chance to get at least or goal or two again tonight. Hughes isn’t crazy expensive and I think he puts up multiple points tonight against this Kraken team who also played last night,


Center: Jeff Carter $6400

Jeff Carter has been a solid asset for the Penguins to start off the campaign. He has four points in three games and plays an important role in this Pittsburgh offense right now. For a daily fantasy lineup and getting Carter at only $6400 is insane to me given the start he has had this year. The way this Pittsburgh offense has been going at so far this season Carter is a must play tonight against the Stars.


Winger: Dominik Kubalik $5900

Dominik Kubalik is a top six winger on this Chicago Blackhawks team and he has two goals in three games already this season. I like his matchup tonight against the Islanders who have struggled so far to start off the season. New York has given up an average of 5.5 goals per game to start off the season. Kubalik plays with Toews on the second line and is a part of the second powerplay unit for the Blackhawks. He is going to produce tonight against the Islanders.


Winger: Zach Hyman $5800

Zach Hyman is a top six forward for the Edmonton Oilers. He will spend time on the ice at the same time on the powerplay unit with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. Tonight Edmonton takes on Anaheim who just played last night as well. Hyman being valued where he is makes him a player to play tonight for a daily fantasy lineup. I see him putting up at least a point tonight with a ton of shots on goal as well.


Defenseman: Quinn Hughes $6400

Hughes logs a lot of ice time for the Canucks and is a must play tonight against the Sabres. Buffalo has been hot to start off the season, but I think they are getting ready to come back down to earth. Love Hughes tonight at this value and I think he puts shots on net and gives us at least a point or two tonight.


Defenseman: Zach Werenski $4900

Zach Werenski has a point in each of his first two games of the season. Tonight the Blue Jackets take on the Red Wings and boy should you play someone from the Blue Jackets tonight. I like Werenski tonight against Detroit for two reasons and those reasons are as followed. First reason is Detroit gives up on average four goals a game. The second reason is Werenski looks like he is the Blue Jackets best defender that can score from the blue line. Look for Werenski to score a goal tonight and add an assist as well.


Utility: Mathew Barzal $6500 

With the Islanders stinking there is only one name that can help bring them back to being good again. That is none other than Mathew Barzal. He only has one goal in two games, but tonight against Chicago I think we could see him put up some numbers. Barzal in five games against the Blackhawks in his career has three goals and an assist for four points. With Barzal getting Lee back to form and having Palmieri on his other wing gives me a lot of confidence in him tonight as my utility player.


Utility: Viktor Arvidsson $5800

Viktor Arvidsson has been stellar so far for the Kings. Two points in two games for Arvidsson and he is playing alongside Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown on that top line. The Kings have been great to start off the season and I love them in their matchup against the Predators tonight. It is a return game for Arvidsson as he will play his first game against his former team. This is great for daily fantasy because I see him being a big time factor tonight. Ride Arvidsson as a solid utility option going up against his former team.


Goaltender: Thatcher Demko $7300

This is the goaltender I am riding with tonight. Thatcher Demko is going to shutout the Buffalo Sabres tonight on the road. Demko has been solid to start off the season, but tonight he is going to be extraordinary. Look for Demko to make thirty saves and get the shutout tonight against the Sabres who having been playing a lot better than their roster shows right now.


I am only risking $4.44 on this lineup lets make some money together.
