Kirill Kaprizov (Minnesota) - W - $7,600 (FanDuel), $7,400 (DraftKings), $27 (Yahoo)

Kaprizov has amassed 12 points, including nine assists, in his past six outings. He has two four-point performances during that span as well as 22 shots on goal. Arizona played the night before at Winnipeg, so Kaprizov and the Wild could take advantage of a tired squad. He scored a goal against the Coyotes on Nov. 10 in a 5-2 victory to give him six markers and 11 points in nine career matches versus Arizona.

Dylan Larkin (Detroit) - C - $6,900 (FanDuel), $7,000 (DraftKings), $21 (Yahoo)

Larkin has supplied six goals and four assists during a seven-game point streak going into Tuesday’s action. He has 17 shots on target and one power-play marker over that stretch. Larkin can stacked comfortably with Lucas Raymond or played on his own.

Roope Hintz (Dallas) - C - $6,500 (FanDuel), $5,800 (DraftKings), W - $18 (Yahoo)

Hintz has heated up with seven goals and 11 points in his past nine outings. That includes four goals (two shorthanded, one power play) and two assists (one power play) during a four-game point streak. Hintz has 17 shots on target during that stretch.

Jesper Bratt (New Jersey) - W - $5,300 (FanDuel), $4,600 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo)

Bratt has been all over the scoresheet since the end of October, while generating five goals and 17 points in 14 contests. That includes one goal and five helpers during a four-game point spree heading into Tuesday’s matchup with San Jose. Bratt is worth stacking with linemates Andreas Johnsson and/or Dawson Mercer.

John Carlson (Washington) - $6,600 (FanDuel), $6,500 (DraftKings), $23 (Yahoo)

Carlson doesn’t come cheap, but his cap hits don’t really break the bank either. Still, he is worth spending up for after accounting for 11 assists and 13 points in his past eight contests. Carlson has four power-play points (one goal, three assists), a shorthanded assist and 16 shots on goal during that stretch. He also has two goals and four helpers over a three-game point spree.
