Today, we're showcasing our new Lineup Optimizer tool for tonight's single-game slate featuring the Rangers and Oilers.

The Optimizer zeroes in on the highest-possible upside plays for a given slate, so it's no surprise to see reigning Hart Trophy winner Connor McDavid in tonight's optimal lineup. The tool excels in finding reasonably-priced player options that can compliment points-scoring foundation studs like McDavid. Evan Bouchard and Ryan Strome, two players having fantastic seasons, are high-upside value picks. Both have greatly boosted their offensive outputs and helped their teams to wins along the way. Bouchard in particular has developed a consistent scoring touch, so he's an excellent play at his current pricing in the 1.5x boosted superstar spot.
