Ben Bishop G (Dallas) - $8,900 FanDuel, $8,300 DraftKings

 

Bishop missed a couple of games after getting hit in the face last week while on the bench but is getting the start Monday against the fading Rangers. He is 21-14-3 this season with a 2.47 GAA and has only given up 20 goals in his last 10 games. He is well-rested after the injury and should be considered in DFS.

 

Ryan McDonagh D (New York Rangers) - $5,200 FanDuel, $4,700 DraftKings

 

The injury to Kevin Shattenkirk has really improved the value of McDonagh who is now spearheading the Rangers power play and becoming an offensive force in DFS. He had two power play assists Saturday and has two goals and eight points in his last 10 games. He has 26 points on the season in 47 games and the Rangers could be showcasing him for a possible trade at or before the deadline.

 

Oscar Klefbom D (Edmonton) - $4,700 FanDuel, $4,500 DraftKings

 

Klefbom has not had a great season, actually it has been pretty bad, with only three goals and 11 points in 46 games but the Oilers have had plenty of time off as they have played only four games in the last 22 days. They embark on 13 games in 23 days and Klefbom should be the offensive leader of the Oilers blueline. He is worth a shot on Monday.

 

Adam Henrique C (Anaheim) - $5,300 FanDuel, $5,000 DraftKings

 

Henrique was held off the scoresheet Saturday but had six goals and eight points in his previous nine games. He plays the point on the first power play and is a great bargain considering his scoring prowess. He has 15 goals and 31 points in 52 games and has eight points with the man-advantage.

 

Josh Bailey W (New York Islanders) - $6,800 FanDuel, $6,000 DraftKings

 

Bailey is having a career season this year with 57 points in 50 games, beating his personal best of 56 points set last season. He should get over 80 points this season and he makes a good pick in DFS along with linemates John Tavares and Anthony Beauvillier (below) as New York is a high-scoring team.

 

Anthony Beauvillier W (New York Islanders) - $4,500 FanDuel, $4,900 DraftKings

 

Beauviller was moved to the top line in practice Friday, alongside John Tavares and Josh Bailey who have been one of the best duos in the NHL this season. Beauvillier was on a hot streak before the All-Star break with four goals and five points in three games but went two games without a point before garnering an assist Saturday. Great value here.
