NHL Rankings

The rankings for fantasy points and value are derived directly from my own fantasy NHL DFS projections. Roster players with solid value rankings and spend most, if not all of your salary. I’m confident that lineups built using this method will be competitive in tournaments.

NHL Projections

The NHL DFS projection model was created and is maintained by Alex “Awesemo” Baker and Jake Hari. It includes DFS projections for contests on both DraftKings and FanDuel. The projections are most effectively used by uploading them into our Fantasy Cruncher premium add-on, which can generate hundreds of optimal NHL lineups within minutes.

NHL Ownership Projections

Initial NHL ownership projections for DraftKings main slates will be posted daily by 4 p.m. EST and will be updated thereafter when major news breaks. Note that last-minute injury reports will impact not only the injured players’ or their replacements’ ownership projection, but can affect overall roster construction and therefore, the ownership projection for every other player on the slate.

NHL Top Stack Tool

The NHL top stack tool utilizes Alex “Awesemo” Baker’s personalized rankings and projections, goes through myriad data and finds the best possible stacks for your daily fantasy lineups.

I'm a wannabe athlete whose athletic career ended after a long tenure riding the bench through JV baseball. The fantasy sports and sports betting degen side of me blossomed at age 12 when I found fantasy baseball and football, and led to a 12-year submergence into the poker scene -- I started playing "secret" cash games in my parents' basements by age 14. Luckily, I've finally found what I love to do -- write about "fake sports," which my girlfriend refers to it as, though it only took me until age 30. If you decide you like the words I write and follow me on Twitter (@nd_joyce), I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of dog photos you will see.
