Today's NHL DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Tuesday, Oct. 15

Center: John Tavares, Maple Leafs vs. Wild. Tavares and Mitch Marner are due for positive regression with only one point between them. Tavares' slow start has his price tags depressed, making him a great value for cash games.

Wing: Elias Lindholm, Flames vs. Flyers. Philly has only played three games but they're allowing the fewest shots against and scoring chances against per 60 at 5v5. As a result, it might not be the best idea to spend big on Calgary's studs. Lindholm is a reasonably priced option that plays on the top line and top PP unit.

Wing: Ryan Dzingel, Hurricanes @ Kings. Dzingel plays on Carolina's third line that has generated a healthy 14 combined points in six games. Dzingel plays on the Carolina PP unit that has played more than 60-percent of their man-advantage minutes in their last three games, and he's priced well on both sites.

Defenseman: T.J. Brodie, Flames vs. Flyers. Brodie is another way to get some cheap Flames exposure, particularly on DK where he's under 3K. He skates on the top D pair which skates with the second line in home games, and he sees work on the second PP unit.

Defenseman: Mike Green, Red Wings @ Canucks. Green is the D-man on the PP unit that Andreas Athanasiou plays on, and Green's pair skates the most with Athanasiou's line at even in road games. He is priced well on both sites (particularly on FD), and he and Athanasiou are a stack option.

Goalie: Conner Hellebuyck, Jets vs. Coyotes. My projections have Hellebuyck with the highest projected number of shots faced, which gives him upside. Arizona ranks 10th in shots on goal per game, and the Jets rank sixth in shots allowed per game. Hellebuyck has been solid with a .928 SV% in four starts this season, and the Jets are a -135 home favorite. He's the best value of the slate in net on FD.
