Today's NHL DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, Oct. 22

Center: Jack Eichel, Sabres vs. Sharks. The Sharks allow the fifth-most high danger scoring chances at 5v5, and they rank bottom 10 in save percentage. There was some thought to choosing a Buffalo depth line, as Eichel's top line is primarily going to see Logan Couture's line, which is the San Jose line that has allowed the fewest even strength goals this season. That said, Couture's line has been safely below average in shot share at 5v5, and there's just not an appealing Buffalo depth line.

Wing: Jake DeBrusk, Bruins vs. Maple Leafs. DeBrusk is the fourth forward on the top PP unit along with the top liners. He plays on the second line and is significantly cheaper than the other guys on the top PP unit, so he's a cheap way to get some indirect exposure to them.

Wing: Blake Wheeler, Jets vs. Kings. The Kings are allowing almost four goals per game, which is second worst in the league, so you'll certainly want some Jets in cash. There's no obvious individual matchups to target or avoid, so we're going with value. Wheeler is underpriced on both sites but particularly on DK.

Defenseman: Shea Theodore, Golden Knights @ Blackhawks. Theodore is another option for Vegas exposure. He dominated power play ice time last night, playing 4:19 on the man advantage, while no other Vegas defenseman played more than 31 seconds.

Defenseman: Jakob Chychrun, Coyotes @ Rangers. Chychrun plays on Arizona's second PP unit and with the Christian Dvorak line at even. He's also priced very well on FD like the Dvorak line. He could be used in an Arizona stack or simply as a one-off salary relief option.

Goalie: Corey Crawford, Blackhawks vs. Golden Knights. Crawford is an intriguing GPP option on both sites tonight. Connor Hellebuyck might be too appealing to go elsewhere on FD, but Crawford is in play there as well as on DK, possibly in a stack with Toews/DeBrincat. He has plenty of upside as the 'Hawks allow the fifth most shots on goal per game, and the opposing Golden Knights rank fourth in shots on goal per game. Same goes for Robin Lehner if he ends up being the starter.
