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, with the average rating 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 115.1 (TOR) to a worst of 90.9 (ANH), and the Defense Rating (DR) ranges from a best of 92.4 (BOS) to a worst of 110.7 (OTT). These numbers will change daily with line changes, injuries and player call-ups.
Tuesday offers a nice seven-game slate with some good fantasy options. Minnesota is the only team on the end of a back-to-back, while Toronto, Philadelphia and Carolina are all playing the front end of a back-to-back. Below is a chart of some of the highlighted tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings:
|$50 Top Shelf (102 entries, Single Entry)||$50 Hat Trick King (681 entries)|
|$33 Goal (606 entries)||$33 Line Change (141 entries)|
|$12 Slapshot (147 entries)||$12 Knuckle Puck (784 entries, Single Entry)|
|$7 Crossbar (595 entries)||$10 Hats Off (14,705 entries)|

|$4.44 Breakaway (17,428 Entries)||$4 Forecheck (5,945 entries)|
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,
