NBA | Must-Haves | 12/10/16

Gordon Hayward (DK: $8,700 FD: $8,100): The Jazz are coming off a game where Shelvin Mack led the team in shot attempts, but in that game George Hill, Derrick Favors, Rodney Hood, and Gordon Hayward didn’t play. The story is a little different tonight, but not as much as the Jazz would like. Of the three players just mentioned, only Hayward will be suiting up. The good news for us…

NHL | Must Haves | 12/10/16

David Pastrnak (DK: $7,200 FD: $7,000): Pastrnak’s off to a blazing hot start this season, but it’s actually part of a larger body of work that he’s been building on since his rookie year. Since the 2014-’15 season, no player in the league has a higher goals/60 minutes rate at 5v5 than Pastrnak. That’s two and a half seasons, so it’s become pretty clear that he’s firmly established himself as…

SOC | EPL Must-Haves | 12/10/16

DraftKings Must-Haves: Alexis Sanchez (DK: $10,500): The first Must-Have for the EPL slate on DraftKings is the Chilean striker for Arsenal, Alexis Sanchez. Sanchez has been on an absolute tear lately with 5 goals and 2 assists over his last 3 matches (all competitions). This form has seen Sanchez average 29 points per game, and he’ll look to continue his streak against Stoke City. Though Stoke City have been impressive…

NBA | Must-Haves | 12/9/16

DK Only: Tristan Thompson (DK: $4,900): Unlike Fanduel, Draftkings determines the price of a player by the matchup that presents them. At first glance, a matchup with Hassan Whiteside seems to be a tough one for Thompson, as Whiteside grades out as a top defender in the league with a 98.4 defensive rating. However, Miami allows the 1.11 Fpts/Min to opposing centers, ranking them second worst in the league. They…

NHL | Must-Haves | 12/9/16

Derek Stepan (DK: $6,200 FD: $5,900): For the top center and power play quarterback on the NHL’s most potent offense thus far, Stepan’s price is a bargain. The Rangers draw a matchup in Chicago against the worst penalty kill in the league against a squad missing their talented starting goalie Corey Crawford. Backup Scott Darling has posted an impressive save rate for 5v5 situations, but has an extremely low .8077…
