nhl fanduel and draftkings picks

Just a small four-game slate on the NHL ice heading into the weekend on Friday night. There is still no shortage of options from the DFS analysts review. With just four games on the slate, let’s make this a Freebie Friday. Enjoy!

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 have a Rank Score of over 5.0.
