Forwards:

Gabriel Landeskog (Colorado) - W - $8,900 (FanDuel), $7,400 (DraftKings), $30 (Yahoo)

Landeskog has generated two goals and eight assists during a seven-game point spree going into Monday night’s action. He has 21 shots on target during that span along with four points (one goal, three assists) on the man advantage. Philadelphia has struggled to keep the puck out of the net, especially lately, which could play into the favor the talented Avalanche.

Sidney Crosby (Pittsburgh) - C - $7,900 (FanDuel), $7,400 (DraftKings), $29 (Yahoo)

Crosby has heated up with two goals and seven helpers in his past five outings. He has 15 shots on goal as well as four power-play assists over that stretch. Crosby appears to have his mojo back after injury and illness sidetracked him early in the year. Playing alongside white-hot winger Jake Guentzel, who has a 12-game point streak doesn’t hurt either and makes for an expensive stack play versus Seattle. Still, Crosby’s cap hits are likely to increase soon, so take advantage now.

Jason Robertson (Dallas) - W - $5,900 (FanDuel), $5,600 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo)

Robertson has four goals and four assists during a five-game point streak entering Monday’s match against Arizona. He has 10 shots on target during that span. The 22-year-old forward is up seven markers and 17 points through 15 appearances this season. Robertson still has very good cap hits across the board, which makes him a great value play. He can also be stacked with Joe Pavelski and/or Roope Hintz.

Jesper Bratt (New Jersey) - W - $5,400 (FanDuel), $4,500 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo)

Bratt has been all over the scoresheet for New Jersey following a bit of a sluggish start. He has compiled six goals and 13 assists in his past 17 contests. Bratt has been held without a point once in the last seven games, while producing two goals and six helpers over that stretch. He has plenty of bang for the buck upside on Monday night.

Bargain Bin: Bo Horvat, (VAN) - C - $5,600 (FanDuel), $5,100 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo) Adrian Kempe (LA) - W - $4,500 (FanDuel), $4,100 (DraftKings), $15 (Yahoo), Yanni Gourde (SEA) - C - $4,100 (FanDuel), $4,900 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo), Nico Hischier (NJ) - C - $4,600 (FanDuel), $5,000 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo), Sonny Milano (ANA) - W - $4,900 (FanDuel), $2,800 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo)

Defensemen:

Devon Toews (Colorado) - $5,100 (FanDuel), $6,000 (DraftKings), $21 (Yahoo)

Toews has racked up four goals and 13 points in 12 games this season. He accounted for one goal, a power-play assist, four shots and four blocks over 31:17 of ice time on Saturday versus Ottawa. He checks in with solid cap hits across the board and has plenty of bang for the buck upside. Toews gains some additional value if Cale Makar (upper body) is unable to play because that will allow him to stay on the top power-play unit.

Bargain Bin: Sean Durzi (LA) - $4,600 (FanDuel), $3,900 (DraftKings), $18 (Yahoo), Hampus Lindholm (ANA) - $ 4,100(FanDuel), $3,200 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Ivan Provorov (PHI) - $4,800 (FanDuel), $5,000 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo)

Goaltenders:

Jake Oettinger (Dallas) - $8,100 (FanDuel), $8,200 (DraftKings), $36 (Yahoo)

Oettinger has been red hot since being brought up by Dallas. He has won all five of his starts. while posting a 1.41 goals-against average and .951 save percentage. The Stars host Arizona on Monday night and the Coyotes rank last in the league with 1.79 goals for per game played.

Bargain Bin: Thatcher Demko (VAN) - $7,600 (FanDuel), $7,800 (DraftKings), $23 (Yahoo)
