NHL DFS Picks for Feb. 12th

*All DFS picks geared toward the Fanduel platform. Fanduel uses a salary cap of $55,000.

Center – David Krejci

The current longest tenured Boston Bruin has seen plenty of success in 55 career games against the Canadiens. Krejci has a career 39 points versus the Canadiens in his career, and at $5,300, making him the perfect DFS value pick. In Krejci’s past five games, he’s contributed five points, burying a goal and adding four helpers. Although Krejci centers the second unit power play, this game will get scrappy, so plenty of power play opportunities should be available.


Wing – J.T. Miller

Am I reading this right? J.T. Miller only costs $6,300? Talk about a value pick. Not only does Miller have almost a point per game in 13 career games against the Blackhawks, but he’s also playing the best hockey of his career. At 56 points so far this season, Miller is two points shy of his career-high with 25 games left to play on the Canucks top line. Miller also comes with exposure to a high powered power play featuring Bo Horvat, Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes. The ‘Hawks started Robin Lehner last night in Edmonton. Miller and the Canucks will look to take advantage of Corey Crawford and the tired ‘Hawks coming into Vancouver tonight.


Defenseman – Torey Krug

Krug is playing excellent hockey for the league-leading Bruins. In his last five games, Krug potted three goals and posted three helpers, but the real value has come on the power play. In 49 games this season, Krug has collected 23 points on the power-play. The Canadiens fall in the middle of the pack of the NHL with a penalty kill rate of 79.5%. The Bruins will look to capitalize on the power play in this rivalry bout, making Krug a DFS value pick at $5,800.


Goaltender – Jacob Markstrom

There’s a reason Jacob Markstrom went to the All-Star game this year. His play in the Canucks net has been exceptional. Especially at home in Vancouver. In 19 games played at Rogers Arena this season, Markstrom is 11-6-2 with a .923 save percentage and 2.57 goals against average. The Canucks have 18 wins at home, and Markstrom is responsible for 11 of those wins. Spend up at $8,200 in net tonight, with the success both Markstrom and the Canucks have at Rogers Arena.
