Welcome to another year of hockey coverage at The Fantasy Fix. Below is a small cheat sheet to help you build your winning lineup! Couple of things you should know:

A-- Research for the first two months of the season is going to be based on (mostly) numbers from last season, so there will be growing pains

B-- Make sure to always check out dailyfaceoff.com for line combinations and starting goalies. I’ll do my best to update this post during the day.

C--Players will be listed in order of production per salary (pp$), a fancy stat I wish I could take credit for.

D-- Please feel free to give me your opinion on the cheat sheet and what you think I should add/remove. Be as nice/mean as you wish.

Let’s have another amazing NHL season!

Marc-Andre Fleury

Vs.DET

B2B games for DET. LV has been hot to start the season. Should continue tonight.

Sergei Bobrovsky

Vs.NYR

Bobrovsky has been lights out to start the season. NYR are not a powerhouse offence. Expect a big game from Bob.

Jonathan Bernier

Vs. ANA

GPP play only. Lots of risk using Bernier tonight, but he could help you take down a GPP if he goes off.

Artemi Panarin

VsNYR

Panarin has not missed a beat since coming over to Columbus from Chicago. He`s a great cash game option

Mikko Rantanen

Vs.ANA

Everyone is running to play Andrighetto tonight, but the player you should be targeting is Rantatnen. He’s on the top line with MacKinnon and his ownership will be much lower

Taylor Hall

Vs.WSH

Everyone is flocking to use WSH tonight, but don’t sleep on the DEvils just yet

James Neal

Vs.DET

You can’t stop James neal, you can only hope to contain him.

Johnny Gaudreau

Vs.OTT

Gaudreau loves to play at home. He has seven points in his first four games. Easy cash game play

Alex Wennberg

Vs.NYR

Wennberg is seeing top line PP minutes and is play with Panarin. A nice mini-stack for cash games

Sean Monahan

Vs.OTT

Can’t use Gaudreau without using Monahan. Those two are a solid combo in GPPs/cash games

Both

Evgeny Kuznetsov

Vs.NJD

Just like Gaudreau/Monahan, Kuzy/Ovi is a mini-stack worth considering in cash games.

Both

Nathan MacKinnon

Vs.ANA

MacKinnon is a nice GPP play. Stack him with Rantanen and you have yourself a low ownership GPP mini-stack that could hit big

Tyson Barrie

Vs.ANA

Barrie is having himself  fine start to the season. His price tag is also very appealing.

Will Butcher

vs.WSH

Remember when no one knew who Will Butcher was? Well he’s slowly become a nice salary relief player that can also score goals.

T.J. Brodie

Vs.OTT

Brodie is having himself a stellar start to the season. Best part-- most DFS sites have no idea how good that start is. He’s only $5K on DK!!!

Zach Werenski

Vs.NYR

It’s been a slow start for Werenski, but the kid can easily turn that around tonight with a strong performance.
