2 NHL Player Stacks For Your Lineup This Week
When building a salary cap lineup, you will need to find the right NHL player stack to increase your chances of being in the pay zone. I have identified some of the stacks for this week and determined which one I prefer. Most of the time, you’ll only be able to fit a maximum of 2 different stacks in your lineup, so choose wisely which stack is for you.
Calgary Flames Stack
Line Stack // PP1
3 Games: VS. CLS, VS. ANH, VS. SEA
$73,800 Total // 36.9% of your salary
- Gaudreau has double-digit fantasy points in 9 of his last 10 games. He’s averaging 18.3 Fantasy Points in his previous 10 games.
- All three of the Flames games are at home this week, which averaged 3.18 goals/game.
- The Flames Powerplay is in the top half of the NHL with 21.54%. Kraken and Blue Jackets rank in the bottom half for PK%.
- The Flames are currently on a 5 game win streak, including a 5 game home streak.
Johnny Gaudreau ($25,200), Elias Lindholm ($25,500), Matthew Tkachuk ($23,100)
Toronto Maple Leafs Stack
Team Stack // PP1
3 Games: @SEA, VS. PIT, VS. STL
$59,100 Total // 29.6% of your salary
- I would prefer Marner over Matthews strictly because of salaries. On OwnersBox, Matthews is $12,000/Game, while Marner is the cheaper option at $8,200/Game. Marner is averaging 22.5 fantasy points in his last 9 games, Matthews is averaging 19 fantasy points in his previous 9 games.
- Bunting is a great cheap option as he plays alongside Matthews and Marner. He does not see much powerplay time but has a reasonable possibility of sneaking on the scoresheet and filling the plus/minus category. Bunting is a +9 in his last 5 games.
- Morgan Reilly has been solid all season, with 41 points in 44 games. I’d pick him for his powerplay abilities. The Maple Leafs have the best powerplay percentage in the NHL at 29.60%. They also have the 3rd most powerplay goals in the NHL.
- The Maple Leafs have the 4th most goals/game with 3.57/game.
Michael Bunting ($15,000), Mitch Marner ($24,600), Morgan Reilly ($19,500)
