Steven Stamkos (DK: $5,900 FD: $7,500): The first Must-Have of the NHL season will be none other than the Lightning’s Captain, Steven Stamkos. On FanDuel, Stamkos is the #2 priced winger, but he is extremely under priced on DraftKings as the #6 winger. Last season, Stamkos had 34 points (17 assists/17 goals) in 38 regular season games and 18 points (10 assists/8 goals) in 23 playoff games. He will skate on the second line with Alex Killorn and Anthony Cirelli while also skating on Tampa’s top power play unit. No matter what Penguins’ line they matchup with, they will have the advantage as Pittsburgh will be without Crosby, Malkin and possibly Guentzel. Last season the Penguins’ goaltender, Tristan Jarry, had a 2.81 GAA while allowing 121 goals in 45 games played (including playoffs). During the regular season in losses, Jarry allowed 45 goals in 14 games, allowing an average of 3.2 goals per game in losses. As large favorites, look for Stamkos to see plenty of chances to pick up points in both 5v5 and special teams. Stamkos should be locked into your lines in all formats.
