Daily Fantasy NHL 3/18/17 Lineup
Logan Couture ($6,900) – vs. Anaheim
Logan Couture is currently on a three-game point streak during which he has posted one goal and five points. He has eight points in his last six games and three points in four games against the Ducks this season. He plays on San Jose’s second line and first power-play unit.
David Desharnais ($3,500) – vs. Vancouver
David Desharnais has points in back-to-back games. He is playing on the Oilers’ third line with Benoit Pouliot and Zack Kassian. The Oilers are rolling three lines at the moment as the team has scored 14 goals in its last two games. Desharnais has four points in six games as an Oiler and is a great value option at only $3,500.
My Next Pick
Connor McDavid ($8,800): Connor McDavid is the easy answer tonight, though his price tag gets in the way. He has 79 points in 70 games in his sophomore campaign, and he has averaged 15.9 fantasy points per game. He has four points in his last two games and 10 points in his last eight.
Also Consider: Ryan Getzlaf ($7,500), Ryan Johansen ($6,500), Mikko Koivu ($6,300)
Mikael Granlund ($7,200) – vs. NY Rangers
Mikael Granlund has had a great year, scoring 65 points in 69 games. He has points in four straight games and goals in three out of those four. Granlund plays on Minnesota’s second line and second power-play unit. He scored a goal and an assist against the Rangers earlier this season.
Artemi Panarin ($6,800) – vs. Toronto
Artemi Panarin has points in four straight games and in nine out of his past 10 games, including four goals and six assists. He has three goals and five points in his last four games. Panarin plays on Chicago’s second line with Patrick Kane, as well as on the team’s first power-play unit. Consider stacking him with Nick Schmaltz ($4,000), who will take Artem Anisimov’s spot as the second-line center.
Rickard Rakell ($5,500) – vs. San Jose
Rickard Rakell now has goals in four straight games and in five out of his last six games; he has a total of eight goals in his last nine contests. He plays on Anaheim’s second line and first power-play unit.

My Next Pick
Victor Arvidsson ($6,600): Victor Arvidsson has points in three straight games, including two goals and four points. He plays on Nashville’s first line and first power-play unit.
William Nylander ($6,000): William Nylander has points in six straight games and in eight out of his past nine games. He plays on Toronto’s first line and second power-play unit.
Also Consider: Patrick Kane ($8,800), Joe Pavelski ($7,800), Leon Draisaitl ($6,500), Mats Zuccarello ($6,200), Chris Kreider ($6,000), Patrick Maroon ($5,100), Elias Lindholm ($5,000), Jason Pominville ($4,500), Andre Burakovsky ($4,500), Alex Burrows ($3,600)
