nhl fanduel and draftkings picks

As we enter our second week of grading the NHL DFS experts, we’ll add in the early Rank Score that weights the expert consensus recommendations based on the expert current standings. Sure, it is early in the process but it can help separate which skater recommended by three experts could be the preferred option on Monday’s four-game slate.

The Weighted Consensus for the NHL uses each expert’s current DailyOverlay score to generate a Weighted Consensus ranking. To calculate the Weighted Rank Score, each expert’s DailyOverlay score for players is weighted on a sliding scale from 1 to 5 with the top expert in the current standings being weighted with a five while the last place expert is weighted with a one. This method gives the higher rated experts picks more weight when compiling the overall player rankings for the day. We will include all players that are selected by at least two experts.

Here is the NHL Weighted Consensus list for February 4:
