Today’s Daily Fantasy Hockey Picks: Advice, strategy for Wednesday’s DraftKings, FanDuel NHL DFS contests

first_imgWelcome back for another season of NHL DFS! Hockey (and daily fantasy hockey) return tonight with a four-game opening slate that includes a battle of the past two Stanley Cup champions, the Blues and Capitals. As is the case most days during the NHL season, we’re here to hep you take down some GPPs and cash games with our favorite DraftKings and FanDuel picks.Before we get into tonight’s plays, we’d like to give you a preview of Fantasy Alarm’s NHL coverage. Every day we will have either a full Playbook like the one below or a more narrative-form breakdown of the slate along with example lineups for slates of three or more games. If there are multiple slates in a day with more than three games, we will cover the larger of the two slates, and if there are an equal number of games on split slates, the later of the two slates. We will not have coverage on days where there is only a one- or two-game slate. Today’s NHL DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Wednesday, Oct. 2Editor’s Note: This is a FREE preview of Wednesday’s Fantasy Alarm’s NHL DFS Playbook.

MatthewsOTT@TORWed 7:00$8300$7700$34The Leafs are the big favorite of this short opening slate as -300 home favorites against the Senators. Ottawa lacks talent and depth, but its first line and first pair had noticeably better possession numbers than the rest of the lineup last year. The matchup against its top five isn’t bad necessarily, but the matchups against Senators down the lineup are some of the best individual matchups of the night. Last year it was the John Tavares line that tended to match up with the opposing top line in home games, so Matthews’ line should see more of the depth if that usage holds this season.CC. McDavidVAN@EDMWed 10:00$9000$8100$35Per my own matchup stat, the Oilers have the second best matchup of the night after the Leafs. Vegas has the team in their own city with the second highest implied goal total of the night, but I prefer the Oilers as a second option. McDavid is great and matchup-proof, that does not need explaining. He may not be affordable in cash, but fit him in if you can and consider him for GPPs, as his upside is always through the roof.CR. Nugent-HopkinsVAN@EDMWed 10:00$5800$5300$19RNH is a cheaper option to get some Oilers in your lineup. He centers the second line and has the dangerous Leon Draisaitl on his wing. RNH also has the benefit of playing on the top PP unit with Draisaitl and McDavid. He’s a nice value on both sites.CB. SchennWSH@STLWed 8:00$5700$4700$16The Blues will host the previous Cup winners, the Caps, in their home opener. While Washington’s top line is dangerous offensively, it’s not the most intimidating line defensively. Schenn’s line typically got opposing top lines in home games late last year, so they could be the beneficiary of the matchup with Ovi and company. Plus/minus hasn’t been a stat in DFS scoring for years, so it’s no concern if the Caps score on them.CB. HorvatVAN@EDMWed 10:00$6100$4800$19Horvat is a nice value on DK. He’ll take up a little more than 11 percent of the cap on FD but only 9.6 percent of the cap on DK. Horvat has a top-six role and plays on the second PP unit for the Canucks. If you’re looking for a pure salary relief option on DK, Chris Tierney is another option at the C position. Tierney is under $3K, and while he won’t see PP work, he is centering Ottawa’s second line.CC. GlassSJ@VGKWed 10:30$3600$2800$10Horvat and Tierney were going to be the value options listed here at C, but Glass cannot be ignored. There’s a real chance the sixth overall pick from this year’s draft is centering Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty and playing with them on the top power play unit in his first NHL game. At his price, he’d be a real value with that kind of usage.WA. JohnssonOTT@TORWed 7:00$5100$5400$15Johnsson joins Matthews at even strength and on the power play and is thus a good option for a stack. William Nylander is the third member of that line, though Nylander plays on the second unit. Johnsson is too expensive on DK but is reasonably priced on FD, which is also the site where Matthews is priced better. Among Toronto forwards on the top PP unit, Mitch Marner is the one whose price tag is more appealing on DK.WM. StoneSJ@VGKWed 10:30$7400$6900$26Vegas is the other sizable favorite of the slate as a -190 home favorite against San Jose. San Jose is a solid possession team that makes it unappealing to pick on, but it had the worst goaltending in the league last year by SV%, so its opponents can’t be ignored. Stone is their most productive fantasy player on average, so he’s the play if you’re looking to not deviate too much from the chalk in cash games.WR. SmithSJ@VGKWed 10:30$5300$5300$18Smith and Jonathan Marchessault play on the wings of William Karlsson, and that entire line stays together on the second PP unit, which gives them some stack appeal. Smith is a bit of a value on FD and could be used as a one-off there, and the line as a whole is priced better there, so that would be the site to stack them in a GPP.WA. ChiassonVAN@EDMWed 10:00$3700$3000$12Chiasson is a nice salary relief option on both sites, but especially on DK where he’s only $3,000. Chiasson will skate on the third line, but his value comes from his spot on the top PP unit. There was some thought to including rookie Joakim Nygard here. He’s a 26-year-old signed out of the Swedish Elite League, and he might play on the top line with McDavid out of the gate. But that’s a big “might”. Nygard would have little to no value if he’s not playing alongside McDavid, so we need to see it before we play it.WV. TarasenkoWSH@STLWed 8:00$8100$6700$27Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz are the wingers on the Schenn line, and the line stays together on the top PP unit, which adds to their stack appeal. The entire line is priced better on DK than FD, so they make for an interesting stack option there.WB. PirriSJ@VGKWed 10:30$3900$4600$16Pirri is your salary relief option on FD with a price tag under $4K. He’ll play on the third line with either Paul Stastny or Glass centering him, and he should play on the second PP unit with the Karlsson line we like for a GPP stack.DM. RiellyOTT@TORWed 7:00$5700$6200$23Rielly is how you get your chalk exposure to the Tavares line. Rielly skated the most with the Tavares line at even strength in home games last season, and he’s the D-man on the top PP unit, which gets you some indirect exposure to each top-six line.DN. SchmidtSJ@VGKWed 10:30$4500$4000$16Schmidt could be an option to include in a VGK2 stack. He’s reasonably priced and joins the Karlsson line on the second PP unit.DO. KlefbomVAN@EDMWed 10:00$5000$5000$17Klefbom is the D-man who gets to play on the top PP unit with all the Edmonton forwards listed above. He’s priced reasonably on both sites but a bit better on FD.DA. EdlerVAN@EDMWed 10:00$5100$5100$21Edler was a great value last season, and he’s starting off the year the same way as the top defensive value on FD and second-best value on DK per my projections. He’s a top pair defenseman who sees PP1 work, so he obviously has a good chance to find the scoresheet. But Edler can produce in fantasy without scoring points. Among D-men on this slate, Edler led them last year in shots on goal plus blocks per minutes played. That gives him a nice floor.GF. AndersenOTT@TORWed 7:00$8700$8400$33Andersen is the chalk option in net with the Leafs easily being the biggest favorite of the night. He has the highest projection of any goalie tonight by a good margin and is worth paying up for when you can, particularly in cash.GM. KoskinenVAN@EDMWed 10:00$7500$7200$27If Andersen isn’t in my lineup, Koskinen will be. As stated, the Oilers would be my second choice of the night, and though they’re not as heavily favored as the Golden Knights, they’re a -130 home favorite. Koskinen is priced well on both sites and is the top goalie value on both sites per my projections. One caveat here: If you want to use Edler and/or Horvat in your lineup and can’t afford Andersen, you won’t want to use Koskinen. In that even, his opponent, Jacob Markstrom could be used in conjunction with Canuck skaters.For more player recommendations and analysis, become a Fantasy Alarm subscriber today!

Walter Oran Lee, owner of State Line Tavern in Caldwell: Feb. 11, 1935 – April 1, 2014

first_imgWalter Oran Lee, was born February 11, 1935 in Brunswick, MO.  He was the fifth of eight children born to Orville E. and Irene (Ellis) Lee.  Walter’s young life was spent in the small Northeastern Oklahoma towns of Vinita, Welsh, Blue Jacket, Timbered Hill, and the surrounding rural areas where his family called home.  At the age of 12, Walter’s mother suddenly passed away, and his life became a journey of moves with his father and his brothers and sisters.  The family settled in the north central Oklahoma area, and he attended grade school at several Grant County country schools, and for a short time, attended grade school in Manchester, OK.In 1949, he had the chance to live and work with Clarence and Connie Struble.  Clarence always treated Walter as a man, even at his young age, and told him he was welcome to stay and live as part of their family, but, if he stayed, he had to attend school.  The Struble’s took him in as one of their own, and Walter remained close to the Struble family all of his life.  While with the Struble family, Walter attended his freshman year at South Haven High School and moved with them to Caldwell where he attended and graduated from Caldwell High School with the class of 1954.  While in high school he participated in football, basketball, and track, was an outstanding, hard-working athlete, and in addition, he worked many part-time jobs around town.  While in high school he met his future wife, Betty Wykes.  Their first date was in 1951, a Sadie Hawkins Dance at the school, and Betty asked him to go as her date.  Betty’s family lived just across the street, and he loved to attend Sunday dinner at her house, as often it was the only hot meal he had all week.When the Strubles decided to move from Caldwell, Walter made the decision to stay and finish high school, but this time he would be on his own.   Not only did Walter excel as a high school athlete, he also worked before school, after practices, and sometimes even during school hours.  He stated many times that his coaches and the good people of Caldwell took care of him and watched out for him knowing that he was on his own.  People knew that if they needed something done they could count on him to help, and he appreciated the work they sent his way, as it often paid the rent and bought a few groceries.  He worked at Johnson’s Feed Store, several of the local gas stations, and Johnson’s Furniture Store.He rented a downtown apartment and lived with several friends over the next two years, including his lifelong friend Norman Metcalf, Harold Sturm (who would turn out to be his neighbor many years later), and his younger brother Larry.Following graduation, Walter and Betty were married on July 19, 1954.  They lived in many places including Westminister and Gardena, CA, Wichita, KS, Manhattan, KS, Kansas City, KS, and Boonville, MO, before finding their way back to Caldwell in the summer of 1968.  Daughter Gayla Marie was born in Caldwell in 1956, son Michael Wayne was born in Inglewood, CA in 1958, and daughter Brenda Ann was born in Kansas City, KS in 1963.Upon returning to Caldwell, Walter worked several places before securing a job with Winters Truck Line in 1971.  During the years that he drove the Winters truck, he met many people and made many friends in the southern Kansas area.  It never failed that if you were with Walt, you were bound to run into someone that knew him.  His kids teased him that you couldn’t take Dad anywhere within a six-county radius without running into someone who knew him, and then you had to wait on him to finish visiting.  He also enjoyed harvest and working for Wayne Wencel and his crew west of Caldwell.  He never failed to come home with a good story about harvest and the happenings at the Wencel farm.In 1976, Walter and Betty purchased the State Line Tavern from Betty’s Aunt and Uncle, Georgia and Ozzie Hines.  He would work for the truck line during the day and help Betty, when needed, at the bar in the evenings.  He was a natural in the bar business as he never met a stranger, and he could carry on a conversation with anyone.  Numerous folks have sat with Walt at the bar and talked and laughed their way through many a story.  Countless friends and acquaintances, both young and old, have lifted their glass and heard Walter toast “Mud In Your Eye”.In May 1991, Walter suffered a major heart attack and spent several days in the ICU at St. Francis Hospital in Wichita, KS.  At that time, the Drs. told him that his only option was to be put on the heart transplant list.  If he chose not to proceed with a transplant he might live another five years.  He politely told them “no thanks” and left the hospital for home where Betty took very good care of him.  His family was blessed to have him another twenty-three years.Walter and Betty owned the State Line Tavern for 25 years, and in the summer of 2001 that chapter of their life came to a close when they sold the business and moved to a home on North Webb Street in Caldwell.  Walter enjoyed planting flowers in their backyard, reading anything he could get his hands on, listening to country music, and watching sports on television.  He celebrated Homecoming every year with his class of ’54 and looked forward to his 60th high school reunion this fall.  He considered Caldwell his “home town” and often stated that there’s no place he’d rather be.Walter, Betty, and his sister Gertrude started the Annual Lee Family Reunion” in the mid 1980’s, and it continues to this day.  He could hardly contain his excitement as reunion time got closer.  He loved and appreciated his many nieces and nephews and looked forward to seeing his “loved ones” whenever possible.Walter’s life journey came to an end in the early-morning hours of Tuesday, April 1, 2014 when he suffered heart failure, and as he spoke of so often, joined his beautiful wife, Betty, in eternal life.Walter is preceded in death by his wife of 51 years, Betty, brother’s Wayne Lee, Elmer Lee, Dale Lee, and Larry Lee, and son-in-law Kip Oathout.Walter will be dearly missed by his brother Bob Lee (Judy), sisters Mary Burris Brooks and Gertrude Allison, brothers-in-law Don Wykes (Ann) and Bruce Wykes (Sannie), his three children, Gayla Oathout, Michael Lee (Dale), and Brenda Sparks (Michael);  his seven grandchildren Scott Lee (Krystal), Brett Oathout (Cara), Chance Sparks, JD Adams, Lacey Lee (Bruce), Jill Crumbliss (Richard), and Leah Sparks (Isaac); and his 11 great-grandchildren Dilyn Lee, Dakota Lee, Dru Lee, James Gonzalez, Xavier Gonzalez, Carlos Gonzales, Miguel Gonzalez, Payton Lee, Piper Crumbliss, Richie Crumbliss, and Marrin Crumbliss, as well as many nieces and nephews, and countless friends.A funeral service will be held 2:00 p.m. Saturday, April 5, 2014 at the Schaeffer Mortuary Chapel.  Dr. Dan Price will officiate.  Interment will be in the Caldwell City Cemetery, Caldwell, Kansas.Memorials may be given in Walter’s name to the Caldwell High School Alumni Association.last_img read more

Week 11 Fantasy PPR RB Rankings

first_imgWEEK 11 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIf you’re looking for PPR-specific sleepers, James White (@ Eagles), Kareem Hunt (vs. Steelers), Duke Johnson (@ Ravens), and Jaylen Samuels (@ Browns) are your top guys, and the usual crew of Tarik Cohen (@ Rams), Nyheim Hines (vs. Jaguars), etc. are in the mix, as well. J.D. McKissic is more interesting this week with Ty Johnson (concussion) ailing, while Hunt is almost a must-start after receiving 11 touches (four carries, seven catches) in his first game. Fantasy owners can’t expect exactly the same results every week, but it’s clear Cleveland wants to make sure of his talents. WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS: Wide receiver | Tight endDevonta Freeman (@ Panthers) is also in a good spot to rack up PPR points, but a foot injury could keep him out. That would leave Brian Hill as the primary runner and likely receiving back, though Kenjon Barner could also mix in and steal some catches. Either way, Hill will be a virtual must-start if Freeman misses time. (Update: Freeman is expected to miss this week.)Another interesting PPR “sleeper” is Derrius Guice (vs. Jets), who’s expected to see his first playing time since Week 1. Assuming he’s fully recovered from his knee injury, Guice would likely handle some receiving-down work while splitting carries with Adrian Peterson. The talented second-year back had three catches on three targets in limited action in Week 1, so clearly he’s capable of making plays out of the backfield. WEEK 11 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPPWe had a couple PPR surprises in Week 10, with Ronald Jones (vs. Saints in Week 11) coming out of nowhere to catch all eight of his targets for 77 yards. Kalen Ballage (vs. Bills) also managed four catches in his new starting role. It only went for two yards, but it was nice to see Miami involve him in that part of the offense.MORE WEEK 11 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderThe backs on bye this week are Saquon Barkley, Aaron Jones/Jamaal Williams, Derrick Henry, and Chris Carson. MORE WEEK 11:Waiver wire | FAAB planner | Trade values | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSReminder: Check back for frequent updates during the week.

Johnson looked like a shell of himself as Drake doubled him in carries and received six more targets last week. Logicially, that should lead us to rank Drake over Johnson, right? Well, we’re not out of a stubborn belief that Johnson will be better this week. Stupid? Perhaps, but name value goes a long way in fantasy football, even when it shouldn’t. (Update: We’ve come to our senses and moved Johnson down further after Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury commented on his health, or lack thereof.)But even if you prefer Johnson or Drake, neither is an exciting play this week against the 49ers. Drake put up big numbers against them just two weeks ago, but the odds of that happening again seem slim, especially with Johnson “healthy”. Broncos backs Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay, both solid receivers, have similar matchups against Minnesota. You can play both as FLEXes, but neither seem quite worthy of RB2 status.last_img read more
