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|
|Filip Forsberg||$6,900 / W||$5,600/ W||15-20%|
|Ryan Johansen||$6,700/ C||$5,500 / C||10-15%|
|Ryan Ellis||$4,700/ D||$4,200 / D||5-10%|
The Predators face the Canucks at home tonight, and I think there is some good opportunity on both sides. The top line of Forsberg, Johansen and Jarnkrok is one that I will definitely be targeting, especially Forsberg who will be a lock for my cash games. The Canucks have a brutal penalty kill, ranked 20th in the league, and have been riding hot goaltending from Ryan Miller that I don't see continuing much longer. Roman Josi, Mike Fisher, Kevin Fialia, Mattis Ekholm and Craig Smith are all good value plays tonight. Ryan Ellis is my my #1 value play on defence tonight, as he's under priced and has been logging huge minutes in offensive situations in PK Subbans absence. Ellis and Forsberg have two of the highest 'Cafe Values' at their position on the Colossus Lineup Optimizer.On the other side of the coin, Bo Horvat is on fire right now, riding a 7 game point streak with line mate Sven Baerstchi who also has six point in six games. The Sedins are still great offensive players, but the Horvat line has been carrying this team for the last two months, and he was rewarded with an all-star game nod in only his third NHL season. Not bad for a guy that a lot of 'experts' said would just be a checking center.
