DraftKings picks: Mason remains undervalued

Flyers goalie tied for third-best home save percentage

by Pete Jensen @NHLJensen / Fantasy Insider

Rickard Rakell, C, Anaheim Ducks
DraftKings price: $4,900

Rakell has been dominant against the Edmonton Oilers this season with one goal, three assists, one block and 11 shots on goal in four games (3.8 DraftKings points per contest), and is still centering Corey Perry (W, $6,500) -- an excellent stacking option for a busy Monday slate. Rakell ended a three-game point drought with an 8.0-point DraftKings showing Saturday at the Ottawa Senators (one goal, one assist, six SOG). He's put together a balanced season of 20 goals, 22 assists, 10 power-play points and 167 SOG yet is still priced below $5,000.

Sam Reinhert, W, Buffalo Sabres
DraftKings price: $4,600

The rookie duo of Reinhart and Jack Eichel (C, $6,000) continues to flourish as the regular season winds down. Reinhart has 10 points in his past 10 games with 27 SOG and six blocked shots. He has already eclipsed the 20-goal mark (21 in 72 games) and is nearing the 40-point plateau (39). He has one goal, one assist and five SOG in three games against the Detroit Red Wings this season and is 37th among wings in price.

Mattias Ekholm, D, Nashville Predators
DraftKings price: $4,400

Ekholm has been a reliable value play for most of the season and has been especially effective against the Colorado Avalanche, who will be without injured forwards Matt Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon again Monday. Ekholm has four assists, six blocks and seven SOG in three games against the Avalanche, and has combined for 10.0 DraftKings points in his past two games with one goal, one assist, two blocks and eight SOG. He's averaging more than 22 minutes per game in his past 10 games and can spell you salary cap relief in the mid-$4,000 range.

Steve Mason, G, Philadelphia Flyers
DraftKings price: $7,700

The Flyers dropped an important game at the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday, with Mason allowing two goals on 17 shots faced for 1.0 DraftKings point in the final game of Philadelphia's road trip. That said, he has been one of the most valuable goalies in the League in his past 10 games, going 6-2-2 with a .930 save percentage and one shutout. He's confirmed to start Monday at home against the Winnipeg Jets, who allow the seventh-most DraftKings points to opposing goalies. Mason is priced 10th among goalies and has a .926 SV% (T-3rd among goalies with at least 20 home games) and three shutouts at Wells Fargo Center this season.
