This article is part of our DFS NHL Breakdown series.
Please see this previous article for the basic strategy write-up.
My rankings use a Corsi-based rating system that I created, where the average rating is 100 both offensively (OR) and defensively (DR). This rating is determined by factoring in Corsi, Scoring Chances, High Danger Chances, Shooting Percentage and Save Percentage. With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) ranges from a best of 114.9 (VGK) to a worst of 86.8 (EDM), and the Defense Rating (DR) ranges from a best of 92.6 (BOS) to a worst of 110.1 (OTT). These numbers will change daily with line changes, injuries and player call-ups.
The following chart will be included so I do not have to bog down the write-ups with too many Offensive and Defensive Ratings. Also shown are my projected shots on goal, shooting percentages and save percentage. Starting goalies are listed with either a projected or confirmed tag at the time of publication – this will be updated later in the day.
