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 are 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!

B2B games for LV. Under 8K on both sites

Cam Talbot

Canucks are projected to score many goals in this game. Expensive option, but worth it.

Robin Lehner

@NYI

Crazy cheap on both sites. NYI were terrible in first game of season. Playing B2B

John Gibson

Vs. PHI

3 games in 4 nights for PHI. Gibson wasn’t strong in his first outing, but should bounce back

Leon Draisaitl

Less expensive than McDavid, Should hit value easily

Jason Pominville

@NYI

Should have a ton of success playing w/ Eichel. Just over 4K on DK

Vladimir Tarasenko

Vs. DAL

Assuming Lehtonen get the start, Tarasenko needs to be a go-to option. High price tag, so worth it

Johnny Gaudreau

Vs.WPG

Jets were terrible in their first game. Gaudreau is a beast at home. If you can fit him in your lineup, play him

Connor McDavid

Always play McDavid when given the chance

Jack Eichel

Vs.NYI

If you don’t want to pay for McDavid, Eichel is a nice second option.

Auston Matthews

Vs. NYR

Ownership will be low. His line was outstanding game one of the season. Excellent GPP option

Ryan Getzlaf

Vs. PHI

Should Getzlaf play, he would be an excellent GPP option. Something to monitor during the day.

Alex Pietrangelo

Huge first game of the season. Should see a ton of ice time in this game. If Lehtonen starts, plug him in!

Brent Burns

Vs.LAK

Burns is the McDavid of defencemen. Nice option of FD only. Better choice in a GPP
