Today's NHL DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, Oct. 29

Center: Nick Bjugstad, Penguins vs. Flyers. If you're going to roster a Pen, do it with someone cheap like Bjugstad. He is the minimum price on FD and centers Pittburgh's second line and sees work on the second PP unit.

Wing: Nikita Kucherov, Lightning @ Rangers. Kuch is worth paying up in cash for as the most productive player on the team with the highest implied total of the slate. You could go with Stamkos if you prefer a mini-stack and have Johnson in your lineup.

Wing: Matthew Tkachuk, Flames @ Hurricanes. Tkachuk has played with Calgary's top line on the top PP unit for quite some time, but at the moment he's playing on the actual top line along with Johnny Gaudreau and Elias Lindholm who is centering the line. The trio still stays together on the top PP unit, so they have stack appeal.

Defenseman: Erik Karlsson, Sharks @ Bruins. While not exactly salary relief at $5,200, Karlsson is a value at that price on DK. He's on a three-game pointless streak, but that's no reason for his salary to have dropped $1,100 from where it was on Sunday. The guy plays 25-plus minutes per game on average, a lot of them on the power play, and he has a respectable eight points in 11 games so far.

Defenseman: John Klingberg, Stars vs. Wild. Klingberg is the D-man on Dallas' top PP unit with Radulov and Pavelski. He's priced well on DK if you want to include him in a Dallas stack there. Minnesota allows the seventh-most goals per game, so this could be a bit of a get-right game for the Dallas offense at home.

Goalie: David Rittich, Flames @ Hurricanes. If you ended up going with a CGY1 stack in a DK GPP, you could include Rittich in the stack. Carolina ranks 10th in shots on goal per, so Rittich could have some upside in his matchup.
