FanDuel NHL: Tuesday Value Plays
FanDuel NHL: Tuesday Value Plays

This article is part of our FanDuel NHL series.

Monday was a light day for the NHL, but Tuesday is making up for it. There are 10 games on the slate, so you have a lot more options for your daily fantasy lineup. Here are some of the ones I like the best.

GOALIE

Darcy Kuemper, ARI vs. ANA ($8,500): I've become a broken record on Kuemper, but I am not going to stop stumping for him just yet. Over his last 15 games he has a 2.31 GAA and .925 save percentage with an 11-3-1 record. I'd be interested in him in any matchup, but the Ducks have scored a mere 2.14 goals per game, worst in the NHL by a considerable margin.

CENTER

Brock Nelson, NYI vs. OTT ($5,700): Nelson is the "other" center for the Islanders, but he actually mans the middle on their top line. He's no scoring slouch either, as he has 20 goals and 43 points in 65 games. Now he's facing a Senators team with a 4.39 GAA on the road. Yes, that is highest in the NHL.

Carl Soderberg, COL vs. DET ($4,500): The Avalanche have been powered by their top line, but Soderberg has 21 goals and 21 assists in 66 games in his own right. He's the one forward in Colorado having a good year that won't break the bank. The rivalry between the Avalanche and Red Wings may be all but dead, but Soderberg will still be looking to light it up against a team with a 3.55 road GAA that sold at the deadline.

WING

Alexander Radulov, DAL vs. NYR ($5,700): The Stars have been extremely banged up, but Radulov keeps chugging along. The Russian has five points in his last five games, giving him 51 in 54 contests. Meanwhile, the Rangers have really struggled away from home. New York has a 4.00 GAA and has allowed 35.5 shots on net on the road.

Jonathan Drouin, MON at LOS ($5,700): Outside of a four-point game recently, Drouin's scoring has slowed a bit. Nevertheless, he has averaged 3:07 per game with the extra man, and he has 14 power-play points. That's the main reason I'm recommending him, as the Kings have the 30th-ranked penalty kill.

Jared McCann, PIT vs. FLA ($4,300): McCann is the latest guy getting the "skating on the top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel" bump. Case in point, he has four points in his last three contests. Provided he stays in this role, he will be on Crosby's side taking on a Panthers team with a 3.81 road GAA.

DEFENSE

Ryan Pulock, NYI vs. OTT ($4,500): Pulock has notched a quiet seven goals and 31 points. He's also put 137shots on goal and blocked 117 shots. As previously noted, the Senators have a 4.39 road GAA. Oh, and a lot of that came before they traded Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel, and potential Selke winner Mark Stone.

Esa Lindell, DAL vs. NYR ($4,400) Lindell isn't John Klingberg, and he doesn't have the upside of Miro Heiskanen, but the Finn can hold his own. He's already set a personal best with nine goals, and he has 20 assists to boot. As noted earlier, the Rangers have a 4.00 GAA in away games.
