DFS NHL Breakdown: Friday Line Stacks and Strategies
DFS NHL Breakdown: Friday Line Stacks and Strategies

This article is part of our DFS NHL Breakdown series.

Please see this previous article for the basic strategy write-up.

Rankings use a Corsi-based rating system that I created, with the average rating of 100 both offensively (OR) and defensively (DR). This rating is determined by factoring in Corsi, scoring chances, high danger chances, shooting percentage and save percentage with more recent games weighted heavier. With the current rosters I have loaded, the Offense Rating (OR) ranges from a best of 128.3 (TB) to a worst of 82.2 (DET), and the Defense Rating (DR) ranges from a best of 92.5 (PIT) to a worst of 107.3 (NYR). These numbers will change daily with line changes, injuries and player call-ups. The ratings in the chart below represent adjusted match up ratings.
