DraftKings Fantasy Success: Avs at Flyers

by James Harding / DraftKings.com

Let's take a look at which Avalanche players are set up for fantasy success tonight against the Flyers.

 

AVS ON OFFENSE

Nathan MacKinnon ($5,700) - MacKinnon picked up two helpers on Saturday in the Colorado Avalanche's 5-3 win over the Sabres. The Avs' top center also fired off three shots on goal, giving him seven in his last two games. MacKinnon has three points in his last four games, five points in his last 10 and currently sits in the top 15 in the league in shots with 192 in 61 games this season. MacKinnon and the Avs get a boost tonight against Flyers goalie Steve Mason, who hasn't started since Feb. 9th and has allowed eight goals against in his last two starts.

Gabriel Landeskog ($4,700) - Landeskog snapped a five-game scoreless drought in a big way against the Buffalo Sabres with two goals and an assist. He also had two shots to cap off his 9.0 DKFP outing. The Captain has six points and 26 shots in his last 10 games, including two points on the power play.

Mikko Rantanen ($3,900) - Rantanen has been exciting to watch lately. The rookie sensation has three goals and two assists in his last seven games, giving him 30 points on the season, good for ninth in scoring among all rookies in the NHL. He has six points in his last 10 games, and he has one point in the Avs' only other meeting with the Flyers this season.

 

AVS ON DEFENSE

Tyson Barrie ($4,400) - Barrie had a great outing against the Sabres over the weekend, netting his fifth goal of the season. It has been a bit of a down season for Barrie offensively, but he has come on strong the last two weeks, putting up three points and 17 shots in his last five games. A solid run of points in the coming weeks could put him on-pace to crack 40 points for the third-consecutive season.

Mark Barberio ($3,000) - Barberio has already matched his offensive output of four points that he put up in 26 games this season with the Montreal Canadiens. In his 12 games with the Avalanche, he has a goal, three assists, two power-play points, 19 shots and is averaging well over 21 minutes of ice time per contest.
