Stacking is the best way to take down a GPP in NHL DFS. You are looking at three stacks below, that consist of top and contrarian stacks. Stacking doesn't always feature just wingers or centers, especially with the offensive defenseman in the game these days. When stacking we tend to focus on the top two lines for teams, as well as who is on the powerplay.
|Name||FD Salary/Position||DK Salary/Position||Estimated Ownership|
|Patric Hornqvist||$6,000 / W||$7,000/ W||10-15%|
|Evgeni Malkin||$7.500/ C||$8,800 / C||10-15%|
|Justin Schultz||$5,300/ D||$6,100 / D||10-15%|
The Pens get a juicy home match up against a Blues team that suddenly can't keep the puck out of their net to save their lives. They've given up 18 goals in their last three games, due in large par to some really sub par goaltending. Tonight, Carter Hutton is in net for the Blues, having given up eight goals over his last two games and with very pedestrian save percentage of .892 on the season. This is a dream match up for the Pens, and I want to highlight Justin Schultz as my #1 play on D. Just like last time Kris Letang went on the DL, Schultz has stepped in and lit it up. He has seven assists in his last four games, helping the Pens patrol the point on their 3rd ranked power play. He's also +27 on the season, second only to Ryan Suter. I'm thinking the Edmonton Oilers might be regretting giving up on Schultz. Malkin is often the forgotten superstar in the league, second in points this year at 54, tied with teammate Sidney Crosby. It's not cheap to stack them, but the upside for multiple goals is there.
