Forwards:

Bryan Rust (Pittsburgh) - W - $7,800 (FanDuel), $6,400 (DraftKings), $26 (Yahoo

Rust has four assists and 11 shots in four games since returning from COVID-19 protocol. He has been all over the scoresheet this season despite being limited to 19 appearances. Rust has nine goals and 24 points to go along with 60 shots on target.

Roope Hintz (Dallas) - C - $7,600 (FanDuel), $6,900 (DraftKings), W - $20 (Yahoo)

Hintz has recorded one goal and one assist in three straight matches going into Tuesday’s matchup against New Jersey. He is riding a four-game point streak and he has amassed 11 points (five goals, six assists) in his past seven outings. Stack Hintz with Joe Pavelski and/or Jason Robertson.

Drake Batherson (Ottawa) - W - $7,200 (FanDuel), $6,700 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo)

Batherson has three goals and five points in six matches going into Tuesday’s contest against Buffalo. He hasn’t picked up a point in his past two outings, but the the Senators’ leading scorer is a good bet to get back on track tonight. He has two goals and five points in his previous three meetings versus the Sabres

Sam Bennett (Florida) - C - $6,900 (FanDuel), $6,100 (DraftKings), $23 (Yahoo)

Bennett had a quiet night on Sunday against Seattle, but he has amassed eight goals and 11 points in his past eight outings. It has been a productive season for him in 2021-22, with 17 goals on 110 shots and 25 points in 32 appearances. Stack Bennett with Anthony Duclair and/or Jonathan Huberdeau.

Bargain Bin: Jeff Skinner (BUF) - $5,500 (FanDuel), $4,900 (DraftKings), $19 (Yahoo), Elias Pettersson (VAN) - $4,900 (FanDuel), $5,100 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Tim Stutzle (OTT) - $5,200 (FanDuel), $4,200 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Kailer Yamamoto (EDM) - $3,800 (FanDuel), $3,200 (DraftKings), $10 (Yahoo), Andrei Svechnikov (CAR) - $4,600 (DraftKings), $23 (Yahoo)

Defensemen:

Evan Bouchard (Edmonton) - $5,600 (FanDuel), $4,500 (DraftKings), $13 (Yahoo)

Bouchard netted a pair of power-play goals in Saturday’s win over Calgary. He is slated to be back on the top unit of the Oilers again on Tuesday because of an injury to Tyson Barrie. Edmonton’s top-ranked power play should be able to take advantage of Vancouver’s last-placed penalty kill. Bouchard has plenty of bang for the buck upside as a result.

Bargain Bin: Rasmus Dahlin (BUF) - $5,400 (FanDuel), $5,700 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Damon Severson (NJ) - $5,000 (FanDuel), $4,900 (DraftKings), $16 (Yahoo) Mike Matheson (PIT) - $4,600 (FanDuel), $3,400 (DraftKings), $17 (Yahoo), Esa Lindell (DAL) - $4,600 (FanDuel), $4,100 (DraftKings), $15 (Yahoo)
