  1. C: william karlsson


  2. C: logan stankoven


  3. W: mat barzal


  4. W: tyler bertuzzi


  5. W: owen tippett


  6. D: noah dobson


  7. D: travis Sanheim

c: william karlsson vs buffalo

The Vegas center has been a staple for his team since coming into the league. One of the few players left from the inaugural season back in 2017-2018, Karlsson is a pillar in the Golden Knights lineup. The 31-year-old has been playing some sturdy lately with seven points in his last six games.

With 41 points in 48 games so far, the Swede is on pace for his second-best season output with 60 points. Karlsson won’t break the bank at $5,600 and has averaged 15.9 fantasy points in his last five outings. 

C: logan stankoven vs san jose

Only four games into his NHL career but the rookie has impressed. With three goals and one assist in that span, Stankoven is making it a tough decision for the Dallas front office once everyone is healthy. Standing at 5-foot-8, the undersized center is using his speed to get by defenders and create chances.

The 21-year-old is skating on the Stars' third line, alongside Wyatt Johnston and captain Jamie Benn. He is also getting a bit of powerplay time on the second unit. It’s an early sample size but at only $3,500 to the cap, it’s hard not to gamble on a fresh, young player who has averaged 13.5 fantasy points in his first four games. 

W: mat barzal vs boston

Barzal has definitely stepped up his game this year, trying to lead the Islanders to another long playoff run. With 63 points on the season, Barzal is on pace for a career-high of 88 points -- which would be three more than the 85 points he put up in his rookie season.

Slotted in on the first line, Barzal has 12 points in his last 10 games. In his last five meetings, he has averaged a noble 15.9 fantasy points. 

W: tyler bertuzzi vs nY Rangers

A super signing for the Leafs in the offseason, Bertuzzi was immediately tagged with big expectations. Maybe those expectations were a bit unrealistic as the 29-year-old didn’t look great at the start of the year. After his slow first half, Bertuzzi has elevated his game lately, adding the depth scoring Toronto desperately needs.

With five goals in his last three matchups, Bertuzzi is fitting seamless on his line with Max Domi and William Nylander. In his last three games, he has averaged a whopping 25.9 fantasy points. 

W: owen tippett vs ottawa

Tippett has been a force for the surging Flyers, who look to make the playoffs this year. The Canadian's play has rewarded him a new contract worth a hefty $49.6-million. The power forward is currently 11th in the league for shots on goal sniping a total of 214. Tippett is on pace for a career-high 52 points and he is looking to hit the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career.

d: noah dobson vs boston

 A real revelation this year, Dobson has exploded onto the scene and has developed into an elite d-man. Not getting as much love as he should, Dobson currently has 61 points on the year, which puts him on pace for a thrilling 85 points.

The 24-year-old gets major minutes on the Islanders first d-pairing alongside Adam Pelech and he quarterbacks the teams first powerplay, distributing pucks to Barzal and Horvat. At $6,700 Dobson brings in around 13.9 fantasy points per game.

D: travis sanheim vs ottawa

The looming 6-foot-3 defenseman punishes the opposing teams forwards with massive hits and makes it difficult to get past him. On the offensive side, Sanheim moves well and carries 36 points this season.

In his last five games, the Canadian has six points -- which is pretty solid for a player who doesn’t see any powerplay time. At $4,700 Sanheim is complete steal and has averaged 15.4 fantasy points in his last five appearances. 

G: ilya sorokin vs boston

One of the best shot-stoppers in the NHL, Sorokin is a big task for any sniper to get pucks past. At 6-foot-3 and with great goalie mechanics, Sorokin is 19-13-11 with a 3.11 GAA, .909SV% and also has pocketed two shutouts. At $7,200 it is a no-brainer to take the 28-year-old, especially when he averages 15 fantasy points per game.

UTIL: philipp kurashev vs columbus

Playing on Connor Bedard’s wing, Kurashev has been solid this year for the Blackhawks. With 32 points so far, the Swiss is on pace for a career-high 46 points. In his last 10 games, Kurashev has pocketed eight points. At $4,200 against the cap, Kurashev is a fair pickup and averages 7.3 fantasy points per game.
