Thomas Greiss, NYI vs DAL ($7,200):
The Stars are 7-9-1 on the road, while the Islanders are 9-1-2 at home. Greiss has faced an average of 33 shots per game, and while his save percentage and GAA are a bit underwhelming, hell likely have low ownership in a nice spot as the home favorite.


Kyle Turris, NSH at VAN ($5,600):
Turris has been a solid addition to Nashville since coming over from the Senators. He has points in six of his last seven games with a goal and seven assists over that span. Turris has formed a solid line with Craig Smith and Kevin Fiala on his wings, as the trio also skates together on the power play. As the sixth highest-priced center on the slate, Turris has the upside to produce the most fantasy points at the position.

Mathew Barzal, NYI vs DAL ($5,400): At home in an inviting matchup against the Stars, Barzal remains in play for the Islanders in a game with the highest over/under total on the slate. The Stars have allowed 10 goals and 21 assists to the center position in their last 13 games and Barzal, outside of his last game, has been playing well.


Josh Bailey, NYI vs DAL ($5,400):
With an assist in his last game, Bailey has back-to-back games with assists and points in four of his last six. Hes a key cog on the first line for the Islanders with John Tavares and Anders Lee and is seeing time on the top power-play unit. This line continues to be one of the best in hockey and, as mentioned, the Islanders are rock solid at Barclays Center.

Kevin Fiala, NSH at VAN ($4,400): Fiala has dazzled of late with points in each of his last four games (three goal, two assists). Hes seeing some time on the power play, where he has scored twice, and is locked in on a productive line with Kyle Turris and Craig Smith at even strength.

Mats Zuccarello, NYR at OTT ($5,500): With three goals in his last four games, Zuccarello has played well this season for an underwhelming Rangers team. He has seven goals and 17 assists, skates on the power play where he has eight points, and has seven points in his last 10 games against Ottawa.


Alexander Edler, VAN vs NSH ($4,800):
Edler has been quiet in his last four games but has been solid for the Canucks overall. Hes averaging just under two shots on goal per game and around 2.5 blocked shots per contest. Also, the Predators have allowed the third most fantasy points to defensemen over the last four weeks. Edler is on the top pairing and No. 1 power-play unit and is worth a look as the eighth highest-priced D-man on Wednesday.

Brady Skjei, NYR at OTT ($5,600): Skjei draws a good matchup against the Senators, who have been melting down of late. Hes skating close to 20 minutes per game and has two goals and six assists this year. Skjei should be able to produce against an uninspired Ottawa team playing its second game in as many nights.
